Before the season started, I took some heat in the comments section of my predictions article about how I thought the Titans would be little better than a dumpster fire this season. With the way the season started, it appeared I could be right. Other than a game that should have gotten both defensive coordinators fired against the Detroit Lions, the Titans could have started the...
