We will be better. As the Titans Toking Heads (pronounced Talking but taking tokes of stuff is pretty chill) we will always have a podcast for the pre-game and post game each week. I wanted to get ahead of this one and make sure Titans Tok Family knows Titan Tok Nick and Titan Tok Kevin won’t fuck up again and are going to provide podcasts until we aren’t Titans fans any more at the end of this season and we’ll see where we take Titans Tok from there. We actually meant to record a podcast on Tuesday night but I forgot my computer which has the podcast recording software. It takes a Giant to apologize but a Titan to redeem himself, and I promise I’ll probably be a Titan not a Giant. *We probably won’t actually be better but will at least TRY to be better than our fuckup this week.
The good news is you get blogs from both Nick and Kevin this week in place of the Podcast so let’s get started Toking (again pronounced Talking but do whatever you want while you read this quality content).
Week 10 Recap – Our Tennessee Titans took care of business at home and layed twelve deuces on the Bengals, 24-20. The Bengals may have had the backdoor cover (Vegas spread TEN -4.5) but it’s the Titans who had the final flush and let’s hope it was a no-wiper since they have to get back on in the shitter for a Thursday Night Color Rush game at Pittsburgh. The Titans frustrated the Bengals all day and ultimately confused them into getting their linebacker and head coach mad at each other. You can’t spell GRIT without ‘Tennessee Titans Rushing Game’ and the Titans proved that again this week.
Looking forward: Week 11 matchup at Pittsburgh.
Our Tennessee Titans are heading northeast, possibly into a different time zone depending on if Pittsburgh and Nashville are different. A short, quick, slim week will make it an interesting matchup again the Tall, Slow, Fat QB of the Steelers Big Ben who has done much worse things in bathrooms than the Titans and Bengals did while taking dumps in last week’s game.
The Steelers come in with a 7-2 record, tied with NE for the top record in the AFC. The Titans are only a game behind, and could conceivably be tied for the AFC lead after this week if the Pats lose to the Raiders.
But let’s keep things straight and headed the right direction (like Marcus Mariotta as discussed in the first podcast) and focus on how to get the W this week at PIT. Surprisingly the Steelers offense hasn’t been great this season with 187 points scored, 18 less than our Tennessee Titans have.
Thursday Night Games tend to favor grit teams, so let’s hope Mike Mularkey is shoving Cream O’ Wheat down the team’s gullets on the plane ride to Pittsburgh.
Titans seem relatively healthy besides DeMarco Murray and Corey Davis sitting out of practice this week. Jonathan Cyprien, Tye Smith and Erik Walden also did not practice so hopefully they either aren’t important or are just decoy not practicing to trick Mike Tomlin.
Your favorite neighborhood bar and grill, Chili’s, is the official Titans bar for the rest of the season. Nick and I will be watching every Titans game there and so should you. Whether you’re a Titans fan or not, everyone is a fan of good eats and slamming a bunch of 23 ounce Coors Lights. Especially since the bar we went to last week is actually a Vikings bar even though they said they are a Titans Bar, Chili’s is the place to be this Titans season and beyond even when we are no longer Titans Fans.
Bill Baller Brand (bigballerbrand.com) was actually our first sponsor so will always have a spot in Titans Tok hearts. They make great sports apparel for women, men and tweeners. Unfortunately they have no way to get the word out about their top notch products so have turned to us to get their product turnt up. Use Promo Code TOK when checking out with $500 sneakers.
NOTE FROM TITANS TOK:
If you know a good way to get real, or preferably fake, fans of the podcast and our twitter page please let me know. More than happy to pay a few bucks to buy 69,000 or so fake followers. Also I’m working on getting the blog onto Spotify and iTunes so if I do that any 5 star ratings you can give it or create fake accounts and give it 5 star ratings would be appreciated.
