The Titans trend of ending strong.

The past ten years have been topsy turvey in Nashville to say the least. With Jeff Fisher at the helm the team has finished with four winning seasons and four playoff berths, two 8-8 seasons, and three losing seasons with the extremely disappointing 2010 season ending the Fisher era and ushering in Mike Munchak who has posted a winning season despite the team only stringing together three wins in a row, a Fisher trademark was the team was streaky the majority of the time. They were night and day, often in the same season. We all remember the 2002 team that started 1-4 before reeling off 10 of their next 11 wins. The momentum followed into next year again resulting in the playoffs. The Titans would not hit such a hot streak again until they won 6 straight games in 2006, the momentum once again pushed the team to the playoffs the following year, despite an up and down campaign that ended with the team winning its final three games, the final two by a combined 10 points in typical Fisher fashion. The following season again was promising, we all remember that one so no need for a rehash. The 09 season was miserable as we started 0-6 before winning 8 of the last 10 to finish at .500. So here we sit after last years up and down 9-7 season at 4-6. Arguably we have only lost one game that we should have won, aside from that Colts loss in OT we have won close games. We are sitting in the best possible scenario right now. With the Colts loss to the Pats, the Ravens win over the Steelers, and the Chargers loss and eminent tale spin setting in we have inched closer to a playoff spot all while not even playing a game and healing up for a late season push. The goal now is to win the remaning division and conference games we have and theoretically we might even win the division if the chips fall right. We have to make it past the Jags then play a Houston team who got exposed by Chad Henne in the secondary. It seems limited film on Henne and his ability to stretch the field gave the Texans some issues, this bodes well for Locker and the vertical game that will only be opened up further by a resurgent CJ. The Colts will be a tough game but one that is winnable as is evident from earlier this season. The Jets are beatable given their horrid qb play and a defense that appears to be on a downward slide. Finally the Packers could prove to be the make or break game for this team and its playoff chances. The Pack and their non existent running game caused them a huge headache against Detroit, if we can control the clock and play keep away we might have a chance. Either way we must win 5 of the next 6 games to have a snowballs chance at the playoffs and I have a feeling that to make it we must beat Green Bay or Houston. The D may help us down the stretch as we are the youngest D in the league and the more games we play the better we'll be. Maybe not in the stat column but from an experience standpoint. Never say die is the way I see it, so LWSS. This team has a chance to get hot and if it does anything can happen, look at the Giants last year. sorry for the lack of indention my cell phone booted me off the net four times before I could finish this post and every time I came back to the page all my paragraphs were jumbled into one huge block of text. So if an admin could fix that I'd appreciate it.
