I'm sorry but I don't think this will be even close, I got the Chargers in a blowout. Tenn is too banged up at several key positions, they're lucky to even be in the playoffs thanks to the Colts being very very lame. And Shawn Merriman is out to get back at them for what they "supposedly" did to him the last time they played!! Remember, he accused Fisher of "ordering" a hit on him which caused him to get hurt (bunch of bologna in my opinion.. )...

Default titans....

Most people in Tennessee agree with you. I would have never thought they would have beat the Colts! We have season tickets and watch all the games, but did not watch that one because it seemed that everyone new they would lose and then there they go...... unfreakinbelievable!

Yeah, I hear you. It was not a very "pretty" game and Dungy and the Colts were very lame in that game, they didn't really play, didn't even use all of their timeouts at the end of the game and the play calling for back up QB Jim Sorgi was very weak at best. The Titans are a great team, don't get me wrong but they're pretty banged up especially at QB position and at the defensive line with Hanesworth being hurt, without him, LT will run wild. Best of luck to the Titans though, you never know.

I did not understand what Dungy was doing. I know I am a girl and dont know much about the ins and outs of football, but I always thought that the object was to win. Granted I did not watch the game, but what is it I hear about Peyton only playing 1 quarter? Did they think that the Titans were that bad? Didn't we beat them earlier in the season? I think so... To be honest I am probably more of a Colts fan than a TN fan. I have not been impressed with their recruiting as of late or the ethics of the players.

EXACTLY!! THANK YOU FOR CALLING IT OUT! That was exactly my thought, you play to win. Even with the backups, you should try to win which they clearly were not trying to do, the play calling with back up QB Sorgi was terrible, every 3rd down, they were not really trying to pick up the 1st. I was very disappointed with Dungy, you should try to win your way into the playoffs, I guess he never learned from 2005, do you remember that year? They were the #1 seed at home, but rested all of their players for way too long and got beat down by the Steelers in the first game. Go figure!

Oh yes I remember. Once again everyone was thinking they would do it and they didn't. And come on, this is professional sports, you know they would get a bonus or something if they went to the dance. But is seems that Dungy is scared to come to the game. Did he think the Titans would hurt Peyton? PLEASE!!! I truely do respect Dungy as a person, but come on...grow a pair!

Don't count the Titans out just yet. I am not very optimistic about the Titans actually winning, but I have learned not to try to predict the outcome of any sporting event. Afterall, crazier things have happened! Remember the "Music City Miracle"?

Let me adress the question first that was asked i think that it will be a close game if Young is able to play and hansworth if not chargers will be victorious.

Now for what got started on here about the colts. Dungy made the right call by taking manning and the rest of the starters out! he has always had a pair, and do you really think that sorgi would not make the best of this opp. he gets to play pre-season and these games and that is it. So do you think that they can call the same plays for him as they do for Peyton? No way he not Peyton. so they use what they have. and that whole secondary unit played there hearts out. The D was layin hits like crazy on the titans in the foruth quarter. So dont give me any of that crap that they didnt play to win!!!! They all play to win or they would show up.
Did Grudin (tampa bay) get this crap when he pulled his starters out as soon as he knew he had a playoff locked. so all coaches do it and ten. coach should of taken Young out and now he is hurt.

It is the way the game is played
