Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Time Outs To Spare Edition

New, comments

Tennessee_titans_30x21 So I'm hearing all of this anger over Fisher not using his time-outs (and here) at the end of the 4th quarter and letting time run out, and I'm just not getting it.  Had you people seen the fourth quarter?  Our defense was gassed and the offense couldn't put one foot in front of the other!  What did you think was going to happen if we got the ball back on our own 35 with under a minute left?  Three and out, and that's only if our swiss cheese defense had made the stops to force the punt in the first place... which they hadn't done all half.  Once we didn't get the safety and they got it out past the 5, the right call was to give the defense a rest and steel yourselves for overtime, especially when the opposing QB is an INT vending machine!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Johnson can kiss any talk of breaking Eric Dickerson's record good bye, but I still like his chances at getting to 2,000 yards since both the Chargers and Seahawks struggle mightily on defense.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 However, CJ is only 253 yards away from breaking Marshall Faulk's single-season yards from scrimmage record.  He's also leading the NFL in rushing by nearly 400 yards.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young continues to be a mentor and inspiring presence to Steve McNair's young sons, and yesterday they spent time in the locker room after the dramatic victory.  I'm serious when I say that this whole situation is one of the best and most heart-warming thing I've seen from an NFL superstar in maybe my whole life.

Follow us through the jump because it hasn't done ya wrong yet, has it?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If you wanna kill Fisher, do it over the Harper-Hood debacle.  Harper is still trash at defending the pass.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 None less than Jimmy Johnson doubts that we make the playoffs this year, but loves what we've got to move forward with on offense.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul Kuharsky asks if Vince Young and Chris Johnson combine to make the most electric duo in football?  After looking at he competition, you have to say VY-CJ is right there at the top, if not king of the hill.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Sucks to be a Dolphins fan today.  I'm just hoping we're not feeling like that on Friday night...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Wow.  Just wow.  Peter King has Darrelle Revis, CB, New York Jets. on his MVP list and not Chris Johnson.  Peter King had actually gotten a little better this year, but with that one he's right back to publishing digital litter-bix liner for the kitties at icanhazcheezburger.com.  I mean Revis is good, be he's not that good.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Expect no mercy this Friday, as what these Chargers, lead by their mouth-breathing punk of a quarterback, did to the Bengals team mourning the loss of a family member was just cold-blooded.
