Political Football: Grand Ole Titans

By Rep. Jim Cooper

Nashville Rep. Jim Cooper offers some southern hospitality to Redskins fans, but not for the team.

Welcome to Nashville, Redskins fans. We hope you enjoy some southern hospitality during your stay in Music City. Get out and see the sights while you're here - it's going to be a beautiful weekend.

Your team however, will not be extended that same hospitality at LP Field this Sunday.

How do I know this? Why am I so confident that my Tennessee Titans are going to beat your Washington Redskins on Sunday? Let's examine the facts.

Vince Young is back in the starting line-up this week and he is salivating at the prospect of going up against one of the league's worst pass defenses. VY will have a field day tossing the ball to Nate Washington, Justin Gage, and Bo Scaife. Oh yeah, Vince has a new target too. A guy by the name of Randy Moss - heard of him?

And if that's not enough, the Skins will have their hands full with NFL's fastest back, Chris Johnson. He's a two-time pro-bowler who is on his way to cracking 1,000 yards for the third straight season. Look for him to rip a big score on Sunday as the crowd chants: CJ, CJ, CJ!

The real difference-maker, though, is our hard-nosed defense full of some of the toughest guys in the NFL. Just ask the Dolphins' two quarterbacks about how it went for them last week - ouch!

Not convinced yet?

As Tennesseans will tell you, I am a bit of a nerd. OK, I'm a total nerd. I love numbers and after crunching the numbers on this one I don't like your chances.

Tennessee is right in the middle of the playoff mix in the AFC South. The Redskins are 0-2 against the AFC South. Redskins are a sub .500 NFC East team. The Titans are 3-0 against the NFC East. On Monday the Redskins were pounded by the Eagles 59-28. Just three weeks ago, the Titans handled the Eagles 37-19.

The numbers don't lie. Case closed. Titans 31, Redskins 17.
