Tennessee Titans Twitter Talk: And That May Be A Wrap...

But will it really matter if the Titans get the win?

This is a question that fans are now asking themselves as the 5-7 team heads to Denver for an uphill battle against Peyton Manning’s Broncos. Although Tennessee hasn’t been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, their hopes have dimmed since last Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts, making them 0-4 against AFC South opponents.

If it’s any consolation, there are still a few weeks left in the regular season, and the remainder of the Titans’ opponents are relatively beatable — take the Houston Texans, for instance. However, it’s hard to forget the loss to the seemingly soft Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags were winless heading into their first matchup of the year with Tennessee, only to leave with a victory and a trail of questions surrounding the Titans organization as a whole.

Without any dramatic moves made to right the ship, it appears that the Titans are content with coasting into the offseason. It’s unlikely that the coaching staff and players have completely given up hope (although it doesn’t always seem that way on the field). Of course, they shouldn’t — as we all know, anything can happen in the NFL, especially when the playoffs are concerned.

Just remember, somewhere out there, Jake Locker is relaxing, recovering and watching the same games as us. He feels our pain.
