Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Johnson ripped-off almost 200 yards on the ground against the Texans in week 2, and this time around he's looking to ditch the 'almost' in that statement. If he has another game like that on the Monday Night stage, you're going to see him become on of the most popular players in the league.  I'd guess if he breaks 180 his jersey sales will hit top 5 by the Cardinals game.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Ok, so you remember how Texans owner Bob McNair called their week 2 victory 'The biggest win in franchise history'? (That's cute isn't it?) Well I'm starting to feel bad about that, because should our boys stomp them Monday Night it's almost like we would have made all their dreams come to life, then slayed them as quickly as they came... just like that line in Laid to Rest, by Lamb of God!  Took the long way around for the set-up to this week's Friday Tasty Jam.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Big Marine, Ahmard Hall, came up with a very fitting nickname for Vince Young as he heads back to his hometown looking to cement his resurgence:

Mayor of Houston

Tennessee_titans_30x21 No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No.  Somebody tell Fisher that we don't care about the past three years because we're in the now now.  Everything that's happening now, is happening now.  We can't go back to then.  Why? Because we passed it.  When?  Just now!  ( FYI: I have to bring that quote out twice a year.  It's in my contract.)

Follow us through the jump as we try to forget the pain of that last link...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I 100% agree with T-Rac's Posse on this one: it's way too early to be thinking playoffs.  I do wonder though, who in T-Rac's Posse is the party supplies guy?  No need to be all obvious about it though, just a little wink would do...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 At least some folks in Houston realize there's the distinct possibility they're about to prance into a buzzsaw on a very big stage...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Since Fisher isn't all the way out of the woods yet, here's a list of the hottest coaching commodities heading into the offseason.  At least there's a nice mix of wily veterans and burgeoning talent should we be in the market. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Just a refresher to remind everyone why Monday's game is going to be physical no matter how it turns out.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How crazy is it that we're finally a relevant team in fantasy football circles?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 For all the complaints people have about Bud, at least he's not Daniel Snyder.  Read the second paragraph of this list for a crash course in how ruin a storied franchise.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I heart Taylor Mays.  Please don't come with a bunch of comments about where he went to school because he could have played for the Appalachia School for the Blind and I'd still take him no.2 behind Eric Berry.  Yeah I said it: the two best players in the draft, by a mile, are safeties.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 This list from Houston Press writer John Royal is classic if you're up-to-date on your Houston sports journalists:

2. Speaking of which, I'm sure John McClain is working on a column right now reminding us all that Bud is just misunderstood and that all he ever wanted to do was to be liked.

8. If Texans win, Justice calls Gary Kubiak a genius for drafting Williams.

9. If Texans lose, Justice calls Charley Casserly an idiot for drafting Williams.

21. There will be a discussion of Vince Young's problems from last year. By everybody except Richard Justice.

and this gem:

25. Bob McNair will be called a class gentlemen. As will the entire team. But most fans would probably prefer a playoff team.
