The Titans will play four primetime games, beginning week one in Pittsburgh. Those are always a good time, and the fact that one is at home on Christmas against the beach bummin’ Chargers (I hope they bury Phillip Rivers) makes it that much better. The fans will be in quite a festive mood for that one I’m sure. We will obviously break it down much more later, but my initial reaction is somewhat relieved. It’s a tough schedule (14th hardest), but I like the way that it stacks up. I was hoping that we might see the Jets and Patriots away games played during the first half of the season (we already knew that Tennessee was opening on the road against the Steelers) and sure enough, the Titans travel to New York in week 3 and New England in week 5. Nice to get those games out of the way before the ground freezes, the winds get whippin’ and the snow banks pile up. Not real crazy about having to go West to Seattle for the last game of the season, but hopefully we’ll be in the same position we were last year with the bye week to look forward to before the divisional playoff game. Big dreams, but there’s no shooting for anything but the moon this season. Even with the loss of Haynesworth in free agency and the complete disappearance of Vince Young, this team is in it’s best position since their Super Bowl loss in 99′ to make a run at the Lombardi again.
More to come later, plus one last mock draft before the real thing and our player profiles of some of the possible options for the Titans with the 30th selection.
Now that we know the full schedule, how do you feel about the upcoming season? Sure it’s early, but we’d love to here your win/loss projections for 2009. Holler!
