Chargers 17 Titans 6

Yesterday was one of the most frustrating days of my life.  Not only did the Titans lose, my 2nd favorite NFL team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost, and the internet at my house didn't work on the one day I wanted to be a part of the open thread more than any other.  I can't tell you how many times I turned off my modem, reset my modem, and hit the refresh button in explorer, all to no avail.  

As for the game, I have a few quick thoughts for the morning with much, much more to come throughout the day.  You cannot win in the NFL if you don't score touchdowns.  That is really the bottom line.  I told my wife at halftime, and she didn't care at all but I had to tell someone, that 6 points was not going to win that game.  I really felt like we were going to have trouble scoring any more.  Turns out I was right.  

The 2nd problem, other than the offense, was the fact that the Titans failed to make the necessary halftime adjustments.  The offense hasn't been able to make adjustments all year, but yesterday it seemed the defense failed as well.

If you would have told me before the game that LT was going to have 21 carries for 42 yards, and that Antonio Gates would have been out the entire 2nd half, I would have danced around my living room with visions of this team facing the 16-0 New England Patriots.

Yesterday's loss was very frustrating, but we have nothing to hang our heads about.  This team went 10-6 and made the playoffs.  There were very few people, myself included, who expected that.  Again, I will have a lot more about this game today.  Be sure and hang around this offseason as well as we will recap the season and get ready for the draft.
