Here's a question for you, well, actually two questions.

(1.) Do you think there are any teams that are afraid to play the Titans? (Cuz until the answer to that is yes, it's really going to be hard to WSS in 2012)...... (2.) Do you think there's a possibility that we could return to the old days when defensive players made bone crushing hits on guys, not to receive a $1,000 cash bounty, but because it was their job!!?? Back then, the incentive was "Do your job, and then you get to keep your job"!! Now part of this is the NFL's fault for changing the penalties to protect the QBs. Next year, if anyone even looks cross eyed at Peyton Manning, they'll get flagged. But I remember back when the Steelers came to the Astrodome to play the Oilers, they would bring in two extra ambulances, not because anyone was getting paid bounties, but because when these two rivals got together it was going to be a lot of very hard hits and some injuries, that's just how it was. In fact Jerry Glanville used to give an old WWII helmet after every game, to the defensive player who made the most bone crushing hits in that game. And the player would wear it all week long, in meetings, in practices...until the next game. When opposing players would watch that on TV, they would really be intimidated and somewhat afraid to come in and play the Oilers. Now, I'm not talking about "cheap shots" (ala Ron Artest), I talking about clean in your face I'm coming at you type hits. Welsh described it as the old Ratbird & Steelers type defenses. Because until we can get back to being a hard nosed, tough, nasty type defense, it's going to be a "I hope we can score more points than they do" kind of thing.
