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.
