Know the Enemy: Indianapolis Colts vs Tennessee Titans, Part Two


Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday, the Indianapolis Colts will try to put a stranglehold on the AFC South, when they travel to face the Tennessee Titans. Listed below is the second-half of my discussion with Joshua Huffman, from Titan Joshua Huffman is the editor of the Tennessee Titans fan blog Titan Sized and a project manager at Pro Football Spot.

Naptown’s Finest –  How shocked were you about the Titans losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week?

Titan Sized – This whole town is in mourning, although some fans expected it in the back of their minds. Third consecutive season that Tennessee has lost to a 1-15, 0-16-caliber team (2011 Colts 0-13, 2012 Jaguars 1-9, 2013 Jaguars 0-8). Fans are ready for a new coaching staff. Only way Mike Munchak can change that would be with a huge winning streak…or at least a Thursday Night Football win.

NF – What is your prediction for the Titans this season?

TS –  My preseason prediction was a 9-7, 10-6ish team who could challenge for a wild-card berth. Now? Whatever the minimum is for Tommy Smith to decide on keeping Munchak for a fourth season. Trapped in mediocrity.

NF – What is your prediction for Thursday’s game?

 TSAndrew Luck is clutch. Fitzpatrick isn’t. It may come down to that. If Dowell Loggains doesn’t utilize Shonn Greene (who had a career day against the 2012 Colts and is a much better option against this defense), then the Colts will take a three-game AFC South lead. As dumb as this may sound, it’s a game that Tennessee would have a better chance to win if they had Matt Hasselbeck.

I would like to thank Joshua Huffman for his time and input. Read more from our discussion at Naptown’s, as well as Titan
