Wow: The Titans Are Back–Almost

As a harsh critic of the Tennessee Titans in the early part of this year, I am more than happy to eat my words right now.

Wins over Philadelphia, New York, and now the Indianapolis Colts have made me a true believer once again.

For two straight Sundays, I have yelled, cheered, and literally jumped up and down with sheer joy at the reemergence of MY team. This is the team I had been missing. This was the team that had disappeared over the last 2 1/2 seasons. These Titans have finally come together.

They may get behind an opponent but, they just keep fighting. They don’t quit or panic. They hold together and, perhaps most importantly, they believe in themselves.

Other NFL fans would probably say, “Why are you so behind a 5-7 team?” The answer is simple: Titans fans have long enjoyed a team that might lose a game, but never quit until the last second was gone. This team is showing us that raw, tough, gritty mindset that we have all been longing for to return.

This season may end up still being a losing one with a 7-9 or 6-10 record, but I believe we have seen the beginnings of something truly special. And for that, I am content.
