|Damian Williams is one of several young Titans who needs to get more playing time.|
Unfortunately for the Tennessee Titans, their spirited rally was too little, too late.
Facing an early 21-0 deficit, the Titans' comeback bid fell short as they suffered their sixth consecutive defeat in last night's 30-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Additional thoughts on yet another Titans' loss...after the jump.
RB Joseph Addai, WR Austin Collie, RB Mike Hart, CB Kelvin Hayden, DT Ricardo Mathews, G Jacques McClendon, LB Clint Session, G Jaimie Thomas
DE Dave Ball, WR Lavelle Hawkins, S Robert Johnson, T/G Troy Kropog, DT Sen'Derrick Marks, CB Ryan Mouton, QB Rusty Smith (#3 QB), LB David Thornton
A couple starting changes for the Colts. With Session out, Kavell Conner starts at weakside linebacker. Hayden is out, as is Jerraud Powers, so Jacob Lacey and Justin Tryon are your starting corners. Donald Brown also starts at running back, but I wouldn't be surprised to see some of newly familiar face Dominic Rhodes, re-signed this week. The only change at starters for the Titans is Jacob Ford in for Dave Ball at defensive end. Thankfully the Colts have struggled to run the ball this year, so Ford's weakness there shouldn't be a big issue.

Total Titans: Lots of interceptions. Lots of interceptions returned for touchdowns. What's going on with Peyton Manning, and is he still a laser rocket armed destroyer of secondaries or now a normal human quarterback?
Two weeks ago, in previewing the Titans-Texans game, I wrote it should be called a "Misery Loves Company" game. At the time, Tennessee had lost three games in a row and Houston had a four-game losing streak. Well, there was nothing like a weak Titans team to cure what ailed the Texans.
Time now for the same song, second verse.
In another "Misery Loves Company" game, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping the Titans are just what the doctor ordered to get them feeling well again. The Colts have lost three games in a row, and four of their last five, yet are only one game out of the division lead. The Titans, as we know, remain mired in what is now a five-game slump, going on nine.
Which of these teams will still be in misery following Thursday night's prime-time showdown? More thoughts on that, after the jump.
Thanks to a five-game losing streak that's caused the season of the 2010 Tennessee Titans to tailspin out of control, the job security of long-time head coach Jeff Fisher has come into question.
Due to the team's losing ways, there's been speculation that the NFL's longest-tenured head coach may be out once the season ends.
While the vast majority of the attention has been focused on Jeff Fisher's cloudy future beyond 2010, there's another Titans' coach who should also be on the hot seat due to the continued struggles of his unit.
His name, you ask? Defensive Coordinator Chuck Cecil.
Post your questions here, and I'll include them in my questions this week.
