Knowing and Not Knowing How to Win

The Oracle travelled for Christmas weekend outside the Tennessee Titans' television coverage region, so he was unable to view the dramatic victory over the Buffalo Bills yesterday. The Titans now have a winning record for the first time since 2003.

On Saturday, when it was learned that the Bills had not sold out the game, I nearly made the precipitous decision to make the drive. In retrospect, I wish I had. The Titans have become the cardiac kids of the National Football League. Not only did they start out 0-5, but they have been outscored on the season by 59 points. Yet, they now possess a winning record and hang by a thread on to hopes of a playoff berth.

On the other hand, I did watch on television yesterday a team that does not seem to know how to win, as the Indianapolis Colts trailed most of the day and lost on a last minute field goal to the lowly Houston Texans. I can only suggest that if the Colts would like to pay a few hundred thousand dollars a year to a defensive player who can't get in good defensive position or tackle anyone, that I would gladly sign up for the job.

Go, Titans
