Watching the Titans-Colts game last night, three things become readily apparent:
- This is a Titans team that can be beat
- This is a Titans team that can be beat by the Packers
- This is a Titans team that can be beat by the Packers passing game
With the expected return of James Jones, McCarthy will have his full arsenal of receiving weapons at this disposal for the first time since the opening Monday night game against the Vikings. Look for more than one or two offensive snaps in the Big Five formation, which, judging by last night, should find several favorable matchups for the Packers. (Why the Colts insisted on keeping Gonzalez on the sideline for a good portion of the night last night, I'll never know...)
On the other side of the ball, the task is indeed a tough one. Stopping Chris Johnson and Lendale White will not be easy, but one thing working in the Packers favor is the absolute non-threat represented by the Titans receivers. What a bunch of stiffs. This may actually be the perfect game for Al Harris to get his sea-legs back, because goodness knows he won't be up against much of a challenge. And Woodson can take anyone on this team in his sleep.
Which, of course, means Sanders will bring Atari Bigby down into the box to help against the run, which, of course, means Mike Heimerdinger will throw often on first down to get the safety out of the box, rinse and repeat...
Sometimes this is a simple game.
