Reasons Not To Beat Yourself Up Today

  • At most, we will only be two games out of our division after tonight.
  • There are still 14 games remaining.
  • It seems Chris Johnson will not be having a sophomore slump.
  • 5 out of 6 divisional games still remain to be played. Those are the best opportunities to gain ground.
  • Our goal before the season was to be 3-3 going into the bye week. Obviously yesterday's game set us back, but it is still possible.
  • The team historically plays better as the underdog.
  • The two games we lost were by 3 points each. If not for an overtime coin flip and a botched punt coverage play,  we could be 2-0 today.
  • It's just two losses. In 2007 we made the playoffs after losing three in a row. In 2002 we made it to the AFC Championship after starting 1-4, with two of those losses coming against less than .500 squads.
  • Our offense is worlds better than last year.
  • Maybe we're getting our losses out of the way now. I'm sure all of us here would much rather end the season with a winning streak that start with a winning streak.
  • As Sam Page already said, the teams that usually begin 0-2 are bad. We are not a bad team. "As strong as a team as we are on paper, you have to go out and prove it. We have yet to prove that we're the team we think we are,'' Keith Bulluck said.
  • The two games we played were tough. The first game was against the defending world champions in their house, who treated the game as another Super Bowl and wanted serious revenge after last year. Yesterday's game was against a team that also treats their games against us as a Super Bowl.
  • This weekend's game for the Titans will be similar to the one the Texans played yesterday. We will have to give it our all.
  • The players understand. Jevon Kearse said, "Maybe we’re just getting our losses out of the way right now. Maybe we’re going to finish up strong. Whatever it is, we’ve got to hurry up and get to it." Nick Harper said, "We were not where we were supposed to be all day on the field. I don’t know why, but we didn’t show up today. We know we should have beaten that team and it shouldn’t have even been close. Not only was it close, but they beat us.’’ KVB said, "We can't let anything steal our confidence but in a division like we have, we're already 0-and-2 and we've got to play catch-up,"
  • Jared Cook is still not completely healthy yet.
  • It's just a game! Don't get too stressed.
