So, the Tennessee Titans are hoping for a blizzard Sunday when they venture a mile high into the sky to face the Broncos in Denver.
You know, because Peyton Manning simply stinks in cold and inclement weather.
Well, as my friend Corky used to say, the Titans can hope in one hand and @#$% in the other and see which one gets full faster.
Oh sure, the weather is going to be hellacious in Denver Sunday – the forecasts is calling for a high of 20 and a low of 6 with a chance of snow – but the mediocre 5-5 Titans are going to need more ammunition than a little cold and snow to stop Manning and the Broncos’ industrial strength offense.
“Hopefully it’s a big snowstorm and it will give us a great chance to win,” said Titans coach Mike Munchak.
Yeah, because when it’s not-freezing cold outside, the Titans are like a raider in the
autumn winter wind.
They’ll knock you ‘round and upside down and laugh when they’ve conquered and won.
Oh, wait. I must be thinking about another team.
According to a story in The Tennessean, the baby blue-clad boys from Nashville have been outscored 89-21 in the last two games they’ve played when temperatures have dipped below freezing at kickoff. The last was a 55-7 trouncing from the Packers nearly a year ago in Green Bay.
But, Munchak wasn’t talking about freezing cold. He said “snowstorm.”
Ok, let’s hop into our mental time machine and think back to when we last saw the Titans play in snow. Oh, yeah. It was 2009 when the Super Bowl-bound Patriots dropped the Titans 59-0. Tom Brady threw six touchdowns.
Good luck, Titans. Don’t let the snow fort door hit you on the can on your way out of Denver.
