What will the final record be this year? Last years 9-7 finish seemed a little on the high side considering the shortened off season and new coaching staff. Will the Titans be better this year, the short answer is yes but it might not reflect in the win column. I'm going to look into our schedule and see if we can muster 9 or 10 wins this year.

Division: 6 games

Most average teams would expect to go 3-3 in their division, winning home games and losing road games. I know Houston is capable is beating the Titans twice. Jacksonville and Indy are capable of beating us once. (Before you argue this point look at last year.)

Worst case 2-4 Best case 4-2

My guess 3-3

AFC East: 4 games

The Titans play at Buffalo and Miami and home against New England and New York.

Worst case 2-2 Best case 3-1

My guess 3-1

New England is a loss the other 3 should be wins even the road game at Buffalo. Buffalo is one of the teams that should be in the hunt for the 6th spot in the playoffs, if they can't win this game other games become important.

NFC North: 4 game

The Titans have Detroit and Chicago at home. They must win won of these two games because they won't beat Green Bay at home. Minnesota should be a win even though it's on the road.

My Guess 2-2

The remaining two games are against the AFC West 2nd place Chargers on the road and AFC North 2nd place Steelers at home.

These two games are critical if the Titans are to make the playoffs. Can they get it done? If things play out like I think they will with the rest of the schedule the Titans are going to need to win both of these games to make the playoffs. I don't see it happening, the Titans haven't played well in San Diego historically and the Steelers just seem to win year in and year out.

Best case 2-0 Worst case 0-2

My Guess 0-2

Final Record 8-8

I want to believe 10-6 is possible, but I'm tempering my expectations as I've been disappointed in years past just like everyone else. I'm thinking 9-7 or worse.

With Locker...and the schedule? I'll be very happy for 8-8.

As long as I see improvement in Locker as the season goes along I'll be happy. I understand there will be some growing pains and that's ok with me.

The optimist in me says we could be as good as 11-5.

The pessimist in me says we could be as bad as 7-9.

The realist in me says we will probably end up 8-8 or 9-7 again.

I have them beating SD, Det, Pit, Ind at home, Jax on the road, Hou at home, NYJ, Jax at home

The other games I have as losses to get 8-8.

I think they will be incredibly inconsistent. They have a lot of talent, particularly on offense, and I expect they'll be able to surprise some teams with wins at SD and at home vs the Lions, Steelers and Texans. I also think that the fact that they're very young will cost them some games and they'll lose games they shouldn't, like at Minnesota, at Miami and at Indy (although I think the Colts will be much better than most think).

I think at best they could be 11-5 and at worst 4-12.

Locker as starter and the CJ looking like a new man.

That alone is good for at least 1-2 more wins.

What's are SOS compared to last years?

You should listen to the latest episode of the Two Tone Crew ;)

I was talking about how rough our early season schedule is and then @TitansGuru pointed out that, statistically, we actually have one of the easiest schedules, which I was surprised to see. With 1 being the most difficult schedule, the Titans rank 28th.

I believe going into the season last year it was .488 and this year is .480 about the same as far as won/loss records. Keep in mind Indy is dragging that number down because the titans play them twice plus a game with Minnesota and 2 against Jacksonville.

A better way to look at it is this. Last year 7 games against playoff teams. (Houston twice, Pitt, Cincinnati, Baltimore, New Orleans and Atlanta.) They went 2-5.

This year the Titans have 6 games against playoff teams from last year. (Houston twice, Pitt, New England, Green Bay, Detroit) 3 games against second tier teams (San Diego, Buffalo, and Chicago) and 7 games against bottom ten/twelve type teams. (Indy twice, Jacksonville twice, Minnesota, Miami and New York) The Jets may be second tier but I don't think they are that good.

I'll go quarter by quarter...

1st Qtr

L vs. Patriots
W @ Chargers
L vs. vs. Lions
W @ Texans

I think the Patriots game could go either way, but Tom Brady, Welker, Gronk, Hernandez, and Lloyd will be too much. The Chargers are not nearly the team they have been so I'll go Titans but the Lions are going to be a Patriots-redux. Calvin Johnson is a best of all time candidate and I'm thinking this might be Brandon Pettigrew's break out year. If we're focusing too hard on stopping them it could open things up for Kevin Smith or whoever they'll have running the ball. The Texans we are familiar with, and if we were starting Hasselbeck I wouldn't call this a win. But I'm calling this one a win.

2nd Qtr

W @ Vikings
W vs. Steelers
W @ Bills
W vs. Colts

Even if Adrian Peterson is back up and running relatively ok, I just don't see the Vikings being that tough of a team. Percy Harvin is probably going to be the key offensive guy for them so if we can blanket him I think we come out with a W. The Steelers game is one we could easily lose, but we've got to win at home sometime or another. Why not this one? The Bills are a shit team and the Colts, while they'll be better (and could surprise), won't have enough to pull ahead.

3rd Qtr

L vs. Bears
W @ Miami
---
W @ Jacksonville
L vs. Texans

The Bears could really surprise a lot of teams this year and the primary reason is the acquisition of Brandon Marshall. He may be a headcase, but he's got a ton of talent to pair back up with Cutler. We could win this one, but I think they make a couple more plays than us. Dolphins and Jags are both crap... no need to go there. The Texans come in and get some revenge for the earlier game... assuming Andre Johnson and/or Schaub haven't gone down for their annual "screw-your-fantasy-team-over" injury stretch.

4th Qtr

L @ Colts
W vs. Jets
L @ Packers
W vs. Jaguars

I think the earlier game vs. the Colts will be close as will this one. I think homefield wins out for Indy here. The Jets are an absolute mess at quarterback and if they've gone to Tebow by this game all the Titans have to do is follow the Patriots blueprint from the playoffs last year and we should be good for a W here. The Packers are a tough call because they could have already locked up their playoff seeding by the time this game comes around. IF they have then we could run away with it. But if they're still battling for playoff positioning all bets are off. It's the NFL, so any given Sunday, but I'm betting Rodgers and Co. would rip us a new one. And once again, the Jaguars are shit.

10-6

Maybe a wildcard, maybe the division, maybe shit. Who knows?

Anything but 8-8....damn I am tired of that record.

worst case 8-8
best case 12-4

picking 10-6

we would have probably won at least 2 more games last year with britt. i think jlock is better than hass, i think britt will stay healthy, i think CJ is back, and i think our D will be improved. add in that we have a not much harder schedule (actually easier in pre-season rankings) and 10-6 and playoffs is not that hard to reach

questions for me this year are:
is Jake a winner?
can the DT's make up for the DE's?
Can the oline gel and remain healthy?

I wish that were the case.
