"Well, the defensive line was spying two guys on the inside, so they wouldn’t let me do that (on the final drive)," Young said of running. "They wanted me to basically use my arm downfield. The only choice that I had was to check the ball down to our speedy guys. And they made a lot of plays.
Paul Kuharsky summarizes our up-coming schedule and breaksdown the statistical probability that we shock the world and make the playoffs (13%). The odds aren't great, but they were a lot worse five weeks ago.

Dan Daly at the Washington Times delivers a good write-up of our season and the ridiculous feats Chris Johnson his pulling off this year.

ESPN Stats & Information passed on this interesting look at the probability of the Titans winning at the start of that drive and all the way along the way as calculated using this page at advancenflstats.com.
Key plays with time remaining in parenthesis:
(2:37) Start of final drive; 1st & goal at own 1-yd line -- 25%
(1:56) fourth-and-4 from own 7 -- 5%
(0:43) fourth-and-4 from ARI 44 -- 1%
(0:33) second-and-5 from ARI 26 -- 57% (first time in drive over 50%)
(0:28) third-and-5 from ARI 26 -- 40%
(0:21) first-and-goal from ARI 9 -- 69%
(0:17) second-and-goal from ARI 9 -- 19%
(0:11) third-and-goal from ARI 10 -- 11%
(0:06) fourth-and-goal from ARI 10 -- 5% (using TD pct here since we know it was last play of game)
It's looking like Justin Gage will be out at least another week, so Britt's starting job will continue to be safe.
Vince Young is so big he's getting covered by the real BBC, not just the fakey-BBC America. That's craziness.
Gary Estwick is trolling for losers on Stampede Blue? Serious facepalm.
Here's a cool little profile of a 9 year old who got sideline passes to the last game thanks to her skills in the Punt, Pass and Kick Competition.
