Personally, I thought Grant played well today.

In fact, while watching the game, on more than one occasion, I said, "Man, Grant is playing much better"

Over 4 yards a carry is pretty decent against nearly any run defense. Against the Titans, it's very good.

Grant was not the reason for our loss. Sure, you could make the argument that if he had a spectacular game, we would have won. But you could make that argument about every player on the field.

If Rodgers played better, we would have won. If Woodson picked off a pass and returned it for a TD, we would have won. If Jennings only broke a few tackles and ran for a TD, we would have won. Etc. Etc.

Not one comment here about the fact Clifton was a late scratch and that meant two moves at the last minute for the O line?

Geez, this is a tough crowd. It's one thing when a guy is injured and you have the week to work the starters, especially when your playing one of the top defensive units in the game.

For what it was worth, and I know they rotate and work these guys in during the week, but as far as the O line goes the two weeks off and the extra prep time went out the window when Clifton couldn't start.

We threw a rookie in there and Colledge did a decent job but he's not Clifton and anyone thinking this didn't have some affect is kidding themselves. Especially when you consider the amount of stunts those guys run.

I thought we got as much out of them and the running game as we could expect. Do you know how many +10 yard gains the Titans have allowed all year going into this game? TWELVE.

Grant had three. I think expectations around here run a little beyond high.

He ran well today but he couldn't catch a cold in antartica


I agree. I was stunned when to find that he's only caught four passes all year...

i liked what grant did in the game you could tell he was a little frustrated when he was tackled at the 50 but i thought jackson was good too i think we were one of the better teams that the titans faced and when the front can give a-rod more time and he had some of that yesterday think they did okay

You're right, he's better (at least in the run game).

Considering my lowered expectations after the beginning of this season and the fact that we were playing arguably the best defense in the league, I was actually pretty satisfied with Grant's performance.

It looks like Grant's slowly but surely getting back into his groove. We'll see next week against another good run defense team in Minnesota how well he can play.

Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
