Thank You Albert

Thank You Albert

I would like to give Albert Haynesworth some credit today. After an emotional victory for the Titans yesterday, Albert had some post game comments that I think are spot on.

Following the game Haynesworth was asked for his take on the victory, and more specifically his take on the Packers. For a guy who often gets a bad rap, he had some surprising things to say:

"You ask anybody on this team and the coaches, we think [Green Bay] was the best team that we've faced so far. The Colts do have Peyton Manning, but I think that was a complete team there. They're only a few plays away from being undefeated or 7-1."

Unlike most of the Titan fans flooding this blog today, Albert realizes just how lucky the Titans are to escape with a win. He also echoes my sentiments that this team is much better than their record shows at this point.

Be it a combination of youth, discpline issues, or the adaptation of a new quarterback, the Green Bay Packers should be in much better shape than they are right now.

We may be a complete team, but if you can't put it together consistently, it hardly matters. Let me be the first to call next week's game against the Vikings a must win. You might as well toss a wild card spot out of the window at this point.

Win the divison or go home. The whole thing is really that simple.

I agree 100%, Alex. The team is good, but unfocused. A lot of this comes from youth, but a lot also comes from coaches and team leaders. The Packers need guys like Rodgers, Woodson, Kampman and the others to join in with McCarthy and keep everyone in the game and on task. Blown calls, dropped interceptions and bone-headed penalties can be talked about all day when it comes to yesterday, but the fact is the game was still winnable if the defense had stayed in the game on that last drive and at least put up a fight.

The division champion is the only person from the NFC North going to the playoffs, so they've got to win the rest of the division games this year. And they've got two tough Bears games left. I'm still hopeful though.

Great thoughts, but I think our record does indicate how good we are. Unfocused is a good way to describe it-- maybe immature. Dallas is forgivable because a lot of teams shit the bed every now and then, but this is the third time we've blow a relatively close game. Yeah, we might have been able to score if we would have had the ball in OT, but we also could have scored before the end of regulation. 5 times in Tenn territory and we put up 16 points. we had plenty of opportunities blown on both sides of the ball.

A close loss won't mean anything unless they're able to come up when it matters. The team has a lot of flashy numbers, but they're kind of soft. Tenn wins ugly-- but they win because they come up with the plays when they matter and right now the packers can't do that.
