Tennessee Titans Twitter Talk: Alterraun Verner Prepares For Uphill Battle vs Seattle

You can say that again.

Last weekend, the Tennessee Titans fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in what looked like was going to be a close game. Backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick clearly wasn’t clicking 100 percent with his offense, which eventually led to a 26-17 loss. Now, as Alterraun Verner has stated, the Titans will have to give it their all this coming weekend to beat the surging Seattle Seahawks.

One ray of hope for the Titans—who will still be without their starting quarterback—is that the Seahawks aren’t invincible. They were finally dealt a loss in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts, dropping them to 4-1, which should give the Titans some encouragement heading into this weekend’s matchup.

However, there’s no doubt that Russell Wilson will bring his A-game. The young Seattle quarterback is 10-0 at home where the crowd is known as the loudest 12th man in the league. This won’t make it easy on Fitzpatrick, who may need to audible to get on the same page as the rest of the offense.

As Verner stated, losing doesn’t feel good, and it’ll certainly sting if the Titans fall to 3-3. They’ll have to face an equally tough San Francisco 49ers team after this week, and there’s a good chance that Jake Locker won’t be back in time for the game, either.

That being said, the Titans have already served up numerous surprises this season. Would it be far-fetched to believe that they could make it out of the next game with a win?

    Chiefsfan said on a KC fan board that the Chiefs beat a solid team–speaking of the Titans–not an elite team. I agree. The Titans haven’t faced an elite team yet but they will face a very good Seahawks team Sunday. Are they a better team than the Titans? I would say yes, at this point in the season, they are. Solid teams become good teams by beating good teams and very good teams become elite teams by beating elite teams. The Titans will definitely face a big test Sunday. Can they win? Yes; and they better if they want to begin the ascent from solid team to playoff contender. If the Seahawks blow us out then we’re just pretenders.
