Between The Posts: Rock Bottom?

Your nightly OT open thread.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Where is the Titans floor? And by that, I mean, where is the perilous bottom of this transition to the new coaching staff, before fans can expect to see some turnaround? We have already had some who pointed to last week as a sure "rock bottom" position, but I'm not so sure.

For me, there is still plenty of football to be played, and its unclear where the Titans will be once the season is over. One thing is for sure, they have to play better than they have so far. Ray Horton made the statement, and justifiably so, that it often takes half a season or more for guys to fully get comfortable with the new system. Oftentimes when this is under way, there is some semblance of stability on the other side of the ball. Not so in Tennessee.

Just as the defenders are adjusting to a totally new way of life, so too are the offensive players. It was, perhaps, easy for writers and fans alike to look at the Titans and automatically give them a few extra wins due to the upgrade in the coaching staff. But just as in most things, it doesn't usually work out that way. "It will get worse before it get's better".

So where is the Tennessee Titans floor? Was it last week's comical collapse against Cleveland, or is it down the road at somewhere between 2-14 and 4-12? Titans fans have had to develop patience for a long time; hoping that it will not be more than one forgettable campaign before the team is competitive once more.
