What I think they should be thinking at the headquarters of the Tennessee Titans this afternoon:
We can play with a good team for a half. We showed that much Sunday in Indianapolis. If we could strike up a deal for half wins that would help us, but such a change in the league’s format is unlikely. Are the coaches telling us we are as good as the first half or are they telling us we are as bad as the second half? No matter what they say, we should believe the latter. There was a big wrestling match for blame after the game. Mike Munchak tried to take the blame for Jake Locker’s pick-6 and for the first-and-10 sneak near game’s end. Locker said he needs to be able to handle the situations. Both plays were terrible and symbolic and made it look like we didn’t know what we are doing. Will we be determined to look like we know what we are doing on Monday night against the New York Jets? Or will we let the spotlight come to town and highlight our warts?
