    Same could be said for Tomlin and Switzer. They inherited teams ready to win. It's not like any of these guys ever built a winner. The just were handed the keys and told to drive straight.

    Exactly..... I will say this..... This team doesn't suck from lack of talent. They suck because of mistakes, poor execution and poor coaching. That is what frustrates me more than anything. This team has the talent that SHOULD be able to compete with the top tier teams. Instead, this team executes so poorly that they lose to the bottom of the barrel teams. When that starts becoming a trend (it has), ownership will start putting people on the hot seat and that begins with the HC... like it or not.

    you know we'll probably come out and light up cincy next week. the thing is we always seem to play at about the level of the competition. today's performance just tells me TN is really bad.

    Because of the Rooney Rule Tomlin isn't going anywhere. Even if he did we would just hire another worthless minority to make the Rooney's feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The days of hiring the best qualified candidate are over until the Rooney's die off and/or lose control.

    Absolutely correct...and it has become the trend.

    I think you're allowing draft position cloud your evaluation of the talent. The O-line has 2 first round picks and 2 second round picks, you would think they would be good, they are not.

    Heyward and Hood were first round picks and they're playing like 4th or 5th round picks well into their careers.

    They could have skipped the 2008 and 2009 drafts and we;d have about the same number of players form those drafts still playing.

    I thought the talent was there like you do, but I'm beginning to believe the talent simply isn't there and the FO has simply missed on entire drafts and the majority of a couple others.

    talent is the issue, IMO.

    You wanna bet? You're thinking Cowher is the still the coach. We have Tomlin. I expect this dismal performance to be followed up with another. My guess is Cincy will bounce back before we do.
    We will start 0-2 enroute to a 5-11 season.

    Execution was the issue for the offense today. Not many teams overcome losing the turnover battle.
