It makes me sick to my stomach thinking about the fact that even if we make it to the playoffs, Bulluck won't be out there. I can't even think about the idea that we may have seen the last of him as a Titans right now.
Much as I suspected, Jamie Winborn will mostly play special teams on Sunday, though he could contribute at linebacker if required. He'll probably get more run there next week, as it's almost impossible to pick-up an NFL system on this short of a week. Collin Allred will start along with Tulloch, and Keglar will be the first man off the bench. I'm still expecting to see more Vinny Fuller than usual though.
Here's the token Chris Johnson profile from a San Diego beat writer, but I did especially like this passage:
"A lot of guys come up to me right after the game and mention that," said Johnson yesterday via phone from Nashville. "They say they (weren’t) gonna let me break off any runs, not gonna let me beat them, that they were gonna make somebody else beat them."
So how’s that working out?

Terry McCormick takes a look at the updated Titans playoff picture.
Mike Lombardi takes a look at the controversy over the timeouts at the end of regulation last week, and comes away appreciating both points of view. He makes another good point that I hadn't thought of either (but completely agree with): Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter is a deadly long-range kicker, so a big play by the 'phins was even more of a danger.
