i had a bad feeling about this game before teddy went down. titans are gonna run the snot out of the ball and murray/henry are the type of backs we usually struggle with (bigger, mobile backs).

hope we start the year 1-0 because weeks 2 and 3 are gonna be tough.

The Titans are 3-0 the last 3 season openers, right?

I have no worries with D/ST as a unit. I just worry that offense is going to put them in a bad situation.

I hope Teddy Bridgewater is ready to go week 1 in 2017. Having a total bum at QB start for you is depressing.

Edit: more like disheartening. I don't want to insinuate more than that.

I have a feeling that Zimmer is going to make life difficult for Mariota.

As long as we can run the ball effectively this is a game we should win, even without Teddy.

If we lose this game I'll be expecting an 0-5 start.

So meh on this season now. If we win, cool. If not, higher draft pick is still nice.

Looks like someone is letting their purpose be denied.

I thought it was gonna be a 12-13 win season with Teddy down, I wouldn't be shocked if it was a 10-11 win season.

This game though, I can't even speculate on, I wasn't able to when Teddy was in either.

But since I'm an optimist I think we win on a Walsh field goal.

Best of luck fellas, unfortunately for you all. Week 1 is when we Tennessee is at their best creating a false sense of hope for the fans. Hopefully this year they aren't a dumpster fire for 15 games!

Bleh. I'm not even really excited for the season anymore. We have no shot at anything. But I think we pull this one out with stout defense, and a couple Blair Walsh field goals.

I don't know, I feel like Tennessee is a fairly improved team. I mean, I don't know about their defense, but I think their offense could be pretty decent. They will be run heavy with Murray and Henry, who could be a pretty tough duo to handle, especially since our run defense is the worst aspect of our defense. Mariota also was great last year before his injury: very mobile, made plays happen. Not a bad passer. I don't think the Titans will be a slouch, and could turn into a close game.

Not to confident with this game, esp with the Packers looming in week 2. Feel like Tennessee has a lot more to prove than us on a few levels and will be fully gung ho.

Here's to hoping I am wrong.

Adrian goes for 193 and 2 TD. 24-13 win. Just my gut feeling.

Adrian Peterson usually never goes off week 1. Our offense will struggle in the early going I think.

That sounds right.

My guess is Shaun Hill starts, although we aren't making any announcement of who will start. Tennessee's defense is so bad that maybe he'll have some success.
