Don’t overreact! Don’t overreact! Don’t overreact!
It wasn’t a perfect game but the Tennessee Titans did what was necessary to get a road win in Atlanta. I am not taking anything away from the team. They played physical. They played smart. (Most of the time.) But, I want to avoid declaring that all things are great after a big win. This team has plenty of potential. We just need to see it consistently.

Is everyone okay? Have we all recovered from the last week of football? I saw some Twitter warriors postulate that the last week (losing to the Colts and the Jaguars in 5 days) was one of the worst stretches of Titans football ever. How quickly we all forget about the past. In 2014, the Titans ended the season on a 10 game losing streak. Yes, the last two games were incredibly frustrating but let’s not lose our minds about them. Things could be much, much worse.
The Tennessee Titans go into Atlanta this Sunday needing a win. But, possibly even more than that, they need to play a good game. The past two weeks the team has been bad. If they have another bad performance this week, it is going to take something special to pull them out of that spiral. So, if they want to get the train back on the track, here are the three keys to the game against the Falcons.

“There is no curse in Elvish, Entish, or the tongues of Men for this J.R.R. Tolkien and Phill Lytle
I have no words in my vocabulary to describe what we saw last night. Well, that is not exactly accurate. I know some words. Some real good words, but this is a family friendly blog and I am a family friendly guy so I don’t use those words. And, since I can’t find the words to help make sense of the absolute embarrassment we witnessed, I will walk you through my reactions using only GIFs, pictures, and memes.

It’s a short week so I’m going to keep my commentary short. These are the three Keys to the game against Jacksonville tonight.

This was less fun that Week 1.
Well, that was not optimal.
How are you guys feeling about the Titans allowing the Indianapolis Colts to ruin the home opener? Me, I’m not feeling all that great. If I had written this article last night, it would have been incoherent and borderline insane. I’m glad I let the dust settle, because, as the name of this series suggests, this is a reaction. Not an overreaction.

We are riding a hot streak! Can we go 2 for 2? Read and find out.
The theme of today’s article is “Don’t get cocky!”
I’ve chosen this as the theme for two reasons. First, I’m feeling pretty good about my three keys for last week. If you missed that inspired bit of football analysis, you can read it here. It’s almost as if the Titans read my article before the game and fashioned their game plan around my words. Almost. But as we all know, pride comes before the fall so I will do my best to put last week behind me and move on to Indianapolis with the proper mindset. I promise I won’t let success go to my head.

A letter of thanks to the best owner in the NFL.
Mrs. Amy Adams Strunk, first, let me say how wonderful you have been for the Tennessee Titans and for the fans of the team. Perhaps the best thing to happen to this franchise since the Super Bowl appearance back in 2000 is the day you became the controlling owner of the team. Prior to that moment, the Titans had become a laughingstock in the league. It had gotten so bad that even after three consecutive winning seasons (2016-2018), the team has not been able to completely overcome their previous and well-earned reputation.

We react to the Tennessee Titans’ 43-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns.
Notice, I am calling this weekly feature “Monday Morning Reaction.” It should be obvious why. As fans, we tend to overreact to everything that happens on game day. If our team wins, we feel they are unbeatable. If they lose, they are THE WORST TEAM EVER. It’s hard to find a balance. I am going to do my best to make the “Monday Morning Reaction” that balance.
30 point wins don’t happen too often in the NFL, so when they do, fans need to savor them. The Tennessee Titans defeated the Cleveland Browns 43-13, though the game was not quite as lopsided as that score would have you believe. That’s not to say the score is deceptive, or that it shows the Titans were not much better on Sunday than the Browns. The Titans were the better team. They were disciplined and played mistake-free football. The Browns were clowns and could not get out of their own way.

For a Titans’ win, these three things need to happen. Titans Ever On: Keys to the game.
If all goes according to plan, this will be a weekly installment. I’ll do my best to be succinct and not waste anyone’s time with too many words. (I tend to ramble a bit…) Every week, I want to focus on three areas (keys) that I believe are the most important for success for that particular game. No more preamble. Let’s get to the keys to the game for week one.

I’m going to do my best to keep this one short. Tonight, after too many months of waiting, a real NFL game will be played. The Packers and the Bears open the season at Soldier Field in Chicago. I’m not really a fan of either team but that does not matter to me at all. It’s football time!
