Titans: Music City Miracle

Chris Johnson

“We haven’t been to the playoffs in two years, so I want to get back to the playoffs, hopefully win the Super Bowl here,” Johnson said Friday night. “I’ve got a lot of team goals. We haven’t been in the postseason so that’s the big thing this team hasn’t done, and I always got that goal to rush for 2,000 yards again. I don’t think expectations can be any higher than that,” Johnson said.

AFC South Quick Hit

The Texans haven’t made the playoffs and continue to be the “surprise” team that’s no longer a surprise, just underachievers (could be solved with Wade Phillips)
The Colts’ hopes rest all on one man (an Iron Man).
The Jaguars are trying to get back to the playoffs too (w/ Garrard, not Gabbert)
The Titans have as good a chance as any of them to make the playoffs this year (w/ Hasselbeck not Locker).

Long shot?

Are the playoffs really a long shot for the Tennessee Titans?

CJ is one of the top 2 RBs in the game, depending on preference and perspective.
If their defensive line holds their own, that back 7 is pretty good.
They have a solid offensive line with Britt.
Nate Washington is a big target that can haul in some TDs.
And there’s a lot of good things being said about TE Jared Cook.
Not as far off as you think. Perhaps a little bit of a stretch, but they are a gritty/veteran team that have done so before with the same recipe

I’m not even a Titans fan, I just realize that a lot of teams will surprise people with their level of play.
Titans, Jaguars, Browns, Rams, Bengals, Panthers, Raiders, Broncos, and Lions will come to play every week. It may not translate into wins for all of them this season, but they’ll make teams work for a win, and make them think twice about overlooking them.
