Hi there. It’s everyone’s favorite, new Jr. Titan Sized correspondent Ryan Alger checking in (and no, I’m not the guy who gets dunked on by Patrick (Ch)Ewing in the Snickers commercial). I’m sitting on the couch watching Randy Moss pad the stats, and add to what has been the best fantasy football scoring week ever for me (thank you Mr. Brees).
But in the realm of non-fantasy football, it’s been a rough week for the only team that really matters to me, the Titans. The more I reflect on our coin-flipper of a loss to the Steelers, the more I think that we’re only a few special teams plays away from beating any team in the league. Look at it this way; I’d rather lose in overtime by a field goal to the defending Super Bowl Champs, than go out like the Bills or the Bengals (It’s a hard knock life Esteban).
Our defense was great against the run all game, but we brought no pressure on Roethlisberger in the fourth quarter. We gave him all day to throw, and he tore us up big time.
That was last week, and I have no doubt in my mind that we’ll be bouncing back against the Texans at home. It’ll be interesting to see if Matt “High Expectations” Schaub can get anything done against our underrated Haynesworth-less D. On the other side of the ball, I think it’s safe to say that Kenny Britt is coming along nicely. I can’t wait to see Britt, Twitch and J-Cook on the field together when it counts (goose pimples y’all).
There’s not much else to say about a disappointing Week 1. Let’s rest up, get focused and get back to what we do best… running the ball and winning football games. My Chris Johnson jersey is staring at me from my closet saying, “Don’t worry Ryan, I’ve got a couple of special endzone dances planned for Sunday. You’ll see.”
