Do the Titans have Moss-itus?

December 7th, 2010 · No Comments

So what in the HELL has happened to the Tennessee Titans… As they seemingly have imploded once again and this time I donít see any miracle comeback from oblivion on the horizon!

Recall how after losing six-straight games to start last yearís season 0-6, punctuated with an embarrassing 59-0 throttling by the New England Patriots. Head Coach Jeff Fisher, with great insistence from Titans owner Bud Adams, inserted Quarter Back Vince Young as the starter after Tennesseeís Bye-week and Young subsequently led the Titans to eight victories in the final ten games to give the Titans a most remarkable turnaround with an 8-8 season finish…

Yet the once mighty Titans, who rocketed off to a 5-2 start this season, seem to have simply cratered with the Soap Opera possibly called the Days of Tennessee? As it seems a longtime ago that I witnessed The Britster, a.k.a. Titans Wide Receiver Kenny Brit scoring three touchdowns. (When was that?)

Yeah, since then Vince Young reputedly flew to Austin, Texas for some New York Steaks, injured his Pinky-finger, threw his helmet and shoulder pads to a fan in the stands in disgust of being yanked from the game, was told not to attend the Teamís meeting (Didnít you get the Memo Vince…) and then subsequently Texted his apology to Coach Fisher…

And that doesnít even involve the Randy Moss factor Ė who surely cannot be even remotely called the teamís X-Factor, having caught a measly 5-passes for 63-yards since arriving in Nashville. (Although at least he hasnít whined about the Catering in Nashville yet…)

Of course, there is the issue of Moss having had three different Quarterbackís in his four game stint at Tennessee. As Carry Collins injured his calf, Vince Young was placed on IR (Injured Reserve) after having a tendon of his throwing hand operated on and third-string QB Rusty Smith made his first ever NFL start following Youngís injury. Next Collins returned for the Titans fifth-straight ďL,Ē losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars 17-6 as the Titans have now gone 13-straight quarters without scoring a Touchdown, a Franchise record…

And donít forget All-world Running Back Chris Johnson, who after pouting Ďbout his salary during the Pre-season, declared heíd be shattering the NFL Record-book this season when he rushed for 2,500-yards, surpassing O.J. Simpson & Co. Yet, the Jaguars recalling their 30-3 whooping on Monday Night Football by Tennessee, where Johnson just squeaked over 100-yards by scoring a very late TD with a 35-yard run, to give Johnson 111-yards for the evening, held the Titans Running Back to a paltry 53-yards Sunday. (And NO Touchdowns either…) Uhm, Chris Ė Its gotta be the Shoes, right? I mean you donít buy your shoes at the same store as Bret Favre Ė Do Yuhs?

And then thereís this one little tiny fact, which I have NO idea if itís simply coincidence or what? But interestingly, the Titans havenít won a single game since The Britster went out with an injured Hamstring Ė which Iím sure he hasnít helped heal any faster by being involved in a Bar room scuffle, eh? So hurry up and get back into the lineup pronto Mr. Brit!

And I donít even want to discuss the issue surrounding the Titans Offensive Coordinator Mike Heimerdinger whoís just been diagnosed with Cancer and has begun Chemotherapy treatments, other than Mr. Heimerdinger has put on an extremely brave face, even calling the loss to the Jaguars from the Titans Upstairs booth Sunday Ė Good Luck Mike…

Then again, with the way the Titans Offense canít find the end zone and the Defense canít stop Jaguars Maurice Jones-Drew from running roughshod over them enroute to a career high 186-yards, how can I expect the Titans to snap their losing streak against Payton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night?

And as reportedly the two-thirds full LP Field stadium in Nashville saw fans flock towards the exit by halftime and beyond on a snowy Sunday vs. Jacksonville. All I can say for the Titans is that itís lucky their disgruntled fans were too cold to pummel the team with Snowballs from the stands. As why are those days of Shopping-bag clad AINTís fans coming to mind. Then again may be the bags donít hold up in inclement weather very well, right?
