Congratulations to the Washington Redskins. Previously, I said the Redskins were melting down. Looks like I had my eyes on the wrong team.
The Titans are now 5-5, and we are in for another week of drama in the sad saga of Jeff Fisher and Vince Young.
UPDATE: Here’s my game recap.
Every Titans weakness was exposed during today’s loss to the Redskins.
Vince Young completed 75 percent of his passes, but fumbled on the second play of the Titans’ first offensive series. He was injured — again. Oh, and he had another post-game meltdown. And he’s out for the season.
Cortland Finnegan and his secondary mates were burned repeatedly by the Redskins receiving corp. Donovan McNabb passed for 376 yards.
Defenders committed penalties at crucial moments that cost the Titans in overtime.
Another tight end — Chris Cooley — had a big day against Tennessee’s linebackers. Cooley made 7 tough catches for 91 yards.
Finally, there were a number of head-scratching coaching decisions, including:
- Three straight running plays during the Titans’ second offensive series, which resulted in a 3-and-out.
- Going for it on 4th and 3 with the score tied at 13 in the fourth quarter, and with Rusty Smith at quarterback, during the same series Young injured his thumb
Chris Johnson had his second straight game with over 100 yards rushing. After two games, Randy Moss has one catch.
The Titans are still in the hunt for the AFC South title — in theory. Does anyone believe they can win the division with Rusty Smith at quarterback?
On one play, Young completed a pass and injured his thumb. Does anyone think that could be his last pass completion as a Tennessee Titan?
