  1. How All NFL Franchises Fared Over Last 20 Seasons (Best to Worst)

    Whats crazy is i put up a lot with random football fans many strictly NFL fans of various teams telling me that the Titans suck and they are really bad and all this other stuff. Honestly i think they suffer from being a small market team and lack of exposure compared to other teams. With that being said i was surprised myself that they were 1 win from cracking the top 10 in win as Dallas was 10th with 171 wins and the Titans had 170 wins. The Titans celebrated their 20th year in 2018 so the last 20 years is basically the teams whole history. The Titans have had 3 straight winning seasons including a playoff win in the 2017 playoffs that was the biggest comeback win for a road team in NFL history. They have had 10 winning seasons out of the 20 they have played, 3 of those seasons were 13 win seasons ('99,'00 and '08). They led the NFL in wins in 2000 and 2008. They had a 2000 yard rusher in 2009(Chris Johnson) and he broke the record for total yardage for a player in one season 2.509 yards. They had 2 NFL Rookie of the Year players in Jevon Kearse in '99 and Vince Young in '06. An NFL MVP in 2003 Steve McNair. They had one of the NFL's first defensive lineman to ever get a 100 million dollar contract in 2009 Albert Haynesworth. They even have the record for most FG in a game 8 by Rob Bironas in 2007. The Titans also set another record which is due to RB Derrick Henry having a 99 yard run the longest in NFL history tied with Dallas Tony Dorsett who also had a 99 yard run in 1983. Their worst period was 2012 thru 2015 with 4 straight losing seasons. That was mostly based on drafting a bust at QB in Jake Locker and having hired a GM that was terrible at drafting Ruston Webster. They were able to remedy this by drafting a new QB Marcus Mariota and hiring a new GM Jon Robinson in 2015. Mariota has been inconsistent but he is clutch he led the NFL in comebacks in 2017 and in his career he has 12 NFL come from behind wins. He also has wins over Tom Brady,Aaron Rodgers,Drew Brees and Russell Wilson. Mariota was the first QB NFL history 250+ pass,100+ rush yds,3 TD passes in game Only 5 QBs have passer rating above 100.0 in Primetime since 2000 Manning,Brees,Rodgers,Wilson.... & Mariota is best with a 106.4 rating Last season Mariota was first in passer rating in 3rd and long,5th in third down conversion,6th in completion percentage as well as being a top 5 QB under pressure. Hopefully he can be good enough to lead the Titans to the postseason in 2019.
  2. 2019 NFL season predictions

    AFC East: NE 13-3 BUF 8-8 NYJ 7-9 MIA 2-14 AFC North: CLE 10-6 PIT 8-8 BAL 8-8 CIN 3-13 AFC South: IND 11-5 TEN 10-6 HOU 8-8 JAX 8-8 AFC West: LA CHARGERS 10-6 KC 10-6 DEN 6-10 OAK 6-10 AFC PLAYOFFS: Tennessee beats Cleveland, KC beats LA Chargers KC beats Indy, New England beats Tennessee KC beats New England, AFC Championship NFC East: PHI 10-6 DAL 9-7 WAS 6-10 NYG 5-11 NFC North: GB 10-6 CHI 9-7 MIN 9-7 DET 5-11 NFC South: NO 10-6 ATL 9-7 CAR 8-8 TAM 5-11 NFC West: LAR 9-7 SEA 9-7 ARI 8-8 SF 7-9 NFC PLAYOFFS: Chicago beats Dallas , LA Rams beat Philly Green Bay beats Chicago , New Orleans beats LA Rams New Orleans beats Green Bay in NFC Championship SUPER BOWL: NEW ORLEANS 44 KANSAS CITY 41 The Saints come back to beat the Chiefs by 3 points on a last second FG sweet vindication for the Saints who got their own payback the 2 weeks prior beating the Rams in a rematch of last years game in the same place. The Chiefs held a 31-7 halftime lead before the Saints stormed back in the second half scoring 21 points within less than a minute into the second half when the Saints score a TD on a kickoff to open the second half. Then the Chiefs fumble their own kickoff on a return leading to another TD. Then KC gets the ball back and they dont fumble the kickoff this time but they do come out on offense and promptly throw an INT which went for a TD. So all the sudden its 31-28 and there second half is barely under way. Several long drives by both teams kill plenty of clock and before you know it it is a tie game 41-41 with around 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter. KC gets the ball and makes it near midfield but no further and punt pinning New Orleans deep on their own 5 yard line with 4 minutes left. The Saints use up nearly all the clock driving down to the 3 yard line but just can't get in the end zone so on 4th and Goal with 8 seconds left they kick a 20 yard FG for the win and the Saints win second title and first one in 10 years as the last one was won against Indy a decade prior.

  4. Tired Of Hearing...Titans Suck

    We had a really bad 4 year stretch where everything went wrong and we had 4 straight losing seasons. Look below at our record each year except 2012 thru 2015 is taken out,with those taken out look at the Titans record each year.... The Titans year by year record with the worst 4 year period '12-'15 taken out..... '99--13-3 '00--13-3 '01--7-9 '02--11-5 '03--12-4 '04--5-11 '05--4-12 '06--8-8 '07--10-6 '08--13-3 '09--8--8 '10--6-10 '11--9-7 '16--9-7 '17--9-7 '18--9-7
  5. Tired Of Hearing...Titans Suck

    So i've heard it for the 100th time recently. Man don't you know the Titans suck. The people or football fans of other teams that usually say this don't know a damn thing about the Tennessee Titans franchise. The Titans just completed their 20th season. From those first 20 seasons we won 170 games altogether (regular and postseason). We were 11th overall in wins and 1 win shy of being top 10 in wins over the last 20 years. Now a team like Cleveland with only 95 wins over the last 20 seasons yeah they pretty much sucked. The Lions only won 119 games and the Raiders only won 130. Those were the worst. 10 winning seasons,7 playoff berths,6 postseason wins,3 division titles,3x 13 win seasons,2 NFL ROYs,1 NFL MVP, a 2000 yd rusher,2x NFL best record,2 AFC Championship appearances,1 Super Bowl appearance were what the Tennessee Titans accomplished their first 20 seasons along with winning 170 games overall which includes regular/postseason wins. The Titans 170 wins was 1 win short of cracking the top 10 where Dallas and N.Y. Giants were tied for 10th with 171 wins. We had the 1999 NFL Rookie of the Year in Jevon Kearse who had 14.5 sacks which is a long time NFL record among rookies. We had the 2006 NFL Rookie of the Year in Vince Young who led the Titans to six straight wins and had three straight 4th quarter comebacks along with the most rushing yardage ever for a rookie QB. In 2003 QB Steve McNair won NFL MVP and had NFL best passer rating 100.4 along with coming off a trip to the AFC Championship the year before. Who could forget Chris Johnson's 2000 yard year in 2009 which included 3 runs over 80 yards and the most yardage ever gained in one year by an NFL player. Speaking of RB's last season Derrick Henry had the longest run in NFL history 99 yards tying one other player Tony Dorsett who did so in 1983 and Henry joined him 35 years later as the only other RB to do so. Our beloved former FG kicker Rob Bironas holds the NFL record for most FG made in a game with 8. The Titans have been doing good lately as they have 3 straight winning seasons as well as a playoff appearance and win in 2017. The Titans set another record with the 2017 playoff win at Kansas City as it was the biggest come from behind win for a road team in NFL history. The team hired Mike Vrabel as new head coach in 2018 and almost all fans agree he is doing a good job. They hired GM Jon Robinson three years ago in 2016 and he has rewarded them with a winning season every year of his tenure so far. The Titans are one of only a half dozen teams that have had 3 straight winning seasons or more going into the 2019 NFL season. However just ignore those who say the Titans suck as the most likely have never watched one of their games to save their life.
  6. Looking At Titans First 20 Years 1999-2018

    With the Titans first 20 seasons in the books i can't wait to see what they do in the next 20 years. We have a devoted fan base with fans all over the world. If you look on twitter they have groups of devoted followers in France,Germany,Spain,Mexico and all over the fifty states here at home. If you look below you can see what we've accomplished over the past 20 seasons. 10 winning seasons,7 playoff berths,6 postseason wins,3 division titles,3x 13 win seasons,2 NFL ROYs,1 NFL MVP,A 2000 yd rusher,2x NFL best record,2 AFC Championship appearances,1 Super Bowl appearance were what the Tennessee Titans accomplished their first 20 seasons along with winning 170 games overall which includes regular/postseason wins. The Titans 170 wins was 1 win short of cracking the top 10 where Dallas and N.Y. Giants were tied for 10th with 171 wins. We had the 1999 NFL Rookie of the Year in Jevon Kearse who had 14.5 sacks which is a long time NFL record among rookies. We had the 2006 NFL Rookie of the Year in Vince Young who led the Titans to six straight wins and had three straight 4th quarter comebacks along with the most rushing yardage ever for a rookie QB. In 2003 QB Steve McNair won NFL MVP and had NFL best passer rating 100.4 along with going to the AFC Championship. Who could forget Chris Johnson's 2000 yard year in 2009 which included 3 runs over 80 yards. We also have players who have set records like K Rob Bironas in a 2007 game at Houston ended up with a new NFL record kicking 8 FG in one game. RB Chris Johnson ended up with and still holds the record for most combined yardage (rushing,receiving,etc.) in one season gaining 2,509 yards in 2009. Last but not least in 2018 RB Derrick Henry ran for 99 yards on one play tying Tony Dorsett for the longest run in NFL history. The Titans have been doing good lately as they have 3 straight winning seasons as well as a playoff appearance and win in 2017. The team hired Mike Vrabel as new head coach in 2018 and almost all fans agree he is doing a good job. They hired GM Jon Robinson three years ago in 2016 and he has rewarded them with a winning season every year of his tenure so far.
  7. A lot of football fans not just Titan fans but others as well really seem to be down on Mariota or simply think he isn't good enough. A lot of the frustration has to do with missed games. The issue of durability and missing too many games is way overblown, He did miss 4 games his rookie year but then in '16 he missed just 1 game,'17 missed just 1 game and last year only missed 2. Altogether in his first 4 seasons he played 56 out of 64 games only missing 8 games or any avg. of just 2 games missed per year. There are many QB's that have missed way more than Mariota such as Carson Wentz,Andrew Luck,Aaron Rodgers,etc. I am about to list some of Mariota's accomplishments BUT if i just listed the accomplishments without listing who it is a boatload of people would say they would love to have that QB. Anyway here we go..... Thats a lot of accomplishments below for a 4 year QB and in my opinion Mariota is clutch as they come when the game is on the line. 3 straight winning seasons 12 game winning drives/10 fourth quarter comebacks In '18 ranked 1st in 3rd & long situations,5th in 3rd down conversions,6th in completion % Was Top 5 QB under pressure for '18 and '17 Since 2000 Mariota has the best QB rating 106.4 of all NFL QB's during primetime games better than Brady,Brees,Rodgers,etc. Mariota has beat Brady,Brees,Rodgers,Wilson Had biggest playoff comeback win for a road QB in NFL history at Kansas City In his first 22 career games Mariota had 6 four-TD games and 9 games with 100 passer rating/multiple TD’s was first QB in NFL history to do so 1 of 5 QBs in NFL history with 10,000-plus pass yards and 1,000-plus rush yards in first 4 seasons Mariota's 95.7% completion rate 22 of 23 passing at Houston was the second highest-completion percentage in NFL history First player NFL history with 250+ pass yds, 100+ rush yds & 3 TD passes in a game First NFL player since Walter Payton in 1983 to pass for a TD, rush for a TD and catch a TD pass of at least 40 yards Scored 35 points in 1st half vs. Bucs most in a half for '15 Scored 35 points in 1st half vs. Packers most in a half for '16 First rookie QB in NFL history to have two games with 4 TDs and no INTs Four games with 3 or more TDs tied Peyton Manning (1998) as most ever by a rookie QB Mariota's 87 yard run was longest NFL run of 2015 Youngest QB in NFL history with perfect passer rating 158.3 in his very first game First QB in NFL history with perfect passer rating 158.3 in his very first game First QB in NFL history to throw 4 TD passes in first half of his NFL debut.
  8. Looking At Titans First 20 Years 1999-2018

    Hasselbeck did good in 2011 for us then went on to do alright in Indy helping them win some games in 2013 and 2014. The worst mistake this Titans franchise made the last 20 years was drafting Jake Locker he ended up costing us 3 or 4 straight losing seasons and that has only happened one time where we had 3 losing years in a row or more.
  9. Looking At Titans First 20 Years 1999-2018

    It sure seems that way. We won't get further than 9 wins until the offense can score more points. We were easily an 11 win team last year if not for 2 losses both by 1 point. In the Bills game if Nick Williams catches that TD we win and in the loss to the Chargers all we needed to do was give Derrick Henry the ball on the 2 point conversion. Our pass offense is terrible so why throw a pass with the game on the line.
  10. There for a good while i was praying that JRob wouldn't bring back Cyprien and let Vacarro walk. In the past moves like this would drive me mad but it looks like we have ourselves a damn good GM who truly is doing everything to win not just cutting corners and saving a buck like some would do. Also we did the same reupping Tye Smith at CB as well as OT Kevin Pamphile both will be great depth. We also took care of P Brett Kern recently as well. When JRob let Cyp go and then resigned Vacarro i was very happy. You could see how much better the safety unit was with Vacarro/Byard. So S Vacarro being reupped was a major plus. Next another situation that ended up having a cliffhanger type moment was when we had an agreement to sign WR Adam Humphries then when i saw them sneaky bastards up in New England were raising the price i was pissed. I had a feeling he might leave. However there was history with Adam and JRob and our GM stood on the table for him while both were in Tampa and that plus giving us his word were all it took,After all our offer was higher when he agreed before Bellicheat tried his damndest thankfully it didnt work. Next we have G Rodger Saffold who was one of the best guards on the market to take over for the departing Quinton Spain and we happen to cut Josh Kline which was awesome as he was a turnstile and most of us thought he wouldnt be let go this soon due to money owed. Glad that JRob admits his mistake and moves on.Saffold opened up big holes for Gurley in L.A. hoping he does the same for Henry. One that surprised me was DE Cameron Wake who still has a good motor regardless of age. It was clear we weren't gonna go after Z'Darrius Smith once the price tag got enormous but me i am very happy we got Wake and if he gives us two solid years we will be looking good. After all year after year in Miami he has been good and there has been no drop off yet in what he can do. Last but not least in the first wave of free agency we took care of what to me is one of our most important issues and that is signing a really good backup QB just in case we have another situation like last year when in the last game of the season with the playoffs on the line Mariota couldn't play and it was clear that backup Blaine Gabbert wasn't good enough. So we cut Gabbert and brought in Ryan Tannehill who was the starter in Miami last year. If we have any issues with Mariota this season we have very capable backup QB in Tannehill. In the last 4 seasons JRob has built a pretty good roster. In fact we have had 3 straight winning seasons and won a playoff game in 2017 and the following year 2018 going into the last game of the regular season we had a win and your in the playoffs game but due to Mariota being injured and out we didnt win. Next time JRob is making sure that there are no disadvantages if it comes to that. Whats amazing is we made all these moves and still have the 2019 NFL Draft coming up and not just anywhere but in our home state of Tennessee. We need help on the interior offensive line,defensive line,EDGE,WR those are our main areas and if JRob gets help in all those areas we will look really good going into next season. There are quite a few fans wanting TE Hockenson out of Iowa as our 1st round pick. I am impressed enough to where i wouldnt be bothered if that was the pick. Some think we will get DT Christian Wilkins or Dexter Lawrence or Chris Lindstrom at G. Some WR that are possible are DK Metcalf,AJ Brown or Marquise Brown. Anything is possible, Can't Wait............
  11. Titans trade for Tannehill

    The main reason this move was made is to avoid another situation like what happened in the last home game vs Indy. If we had Mariota or even a good backup QB i think we could've won and made the postseason. The defense was playing lights out but our offense couldnt hang due to insufficient backup at QB. In '19 if Mariota gets hurt with 3 games left and we are in the middle of a division and playoff race we dont have to panic because we have a good backup in Tannehill thats damn near equal to Mariota.
  12. Nothing is more enjoyable than watching your favorite team play on NFL Sunday. Well for a long time growing up we didn't have a team here in Tennessee when i started watching in the mid eighties at age 10. However in 1999 we finally had our own team here playing in a new stadium on the Cumberland River and that new team was the Tennessee Titans. The Titans played 20 seasons as the 2018 season came to a conclusion at end of December. From 1999-2018 the Titans won a total of 170 games if you include the regular and post season. Compared with the other 31 NFL teams the Titans ranked right outside the top 10 in wins overall. Many fans of other teams and some of the Titans own fans might think wow there is no way the Titans were good enough to be right outside the top 10 in overall wins over their first 20 seasons but they were. 10 winning seasons,7 playoff berths,6 postseason wins,3 division titles,3x 13 win seasons,2 NFL ROYs,1 NFL MVP,A 2000 yd rusher,2x NFL best record,2 AFC Championship appearances,1 Super Bowl appearance were what the Titans accomplished their first 20 seasons along with winning 170 games overall. From 1999 through 2003 the Titans had one of the NFL’s best records those 5 years going 56-24 that included a 33-9 record at home during that era. A lot of that is due to the great work done by GM Floyd Reese picking players like Jevon Kearse,Keith Bulluck,Albert Haynesworth along with others such as Steve McNair,Eddie George,Derrick Mason,Samari Rolle,etc. The Titans have had plenty of thrilling moments as well as players and had playoff wins along the line as well. The Titans/Steelers 2002 playoff game was memorable for a running into the kicker call and Joe Nedney got another shot getting a winning FG for a 34-31 win. In January 2000 the Bills came to Nashville and left broken hearted after the Titans pulled off whats called The Music City Miracle running a trick play on a kickoff trailing by a point with only 15 seconds left and scoring a TD to win. Steve McNair won NFL MVP in 2003. One of the toughest players to ever play the game especially at the QB position. McNair suffered numerous injuries including cracked ribs,bruised sternum,shoulder issues,broken bones,etc. but more often than not still played. McNair had 10 Fourth quarter comebacks and 15 game winning drives during his career here. Our GM Floyd Reese as he had many times before hit the nail on the head when he took a pair of tackles in the 2005 NFL Draft in the second round he picked Michael Roos and in the fourth round he picked David Stewart and both were great bookend tackles who ended up playing a decade in Tennessee. Favorite players of mine during the first 10 years here included Kyle Vanden Bosch,Cortland Finnegan,Samari Rolle besides the usual ones Steve McNair,Eddie George,etc. 2004 through 2006 were rebuilding years and it was during this time in 2006 that the team drafted their next QB in Vince Young. Although VY ultimately didn’t last but after five years in Tennessee he left with a 30-17 winning mark and had several thrilling comebacks including a 21 point comeback his rookie year,a 40 yard run in OT to beat Houston and a 99 yard drive to beat Arizona as time expired. Young had 13 game winning drives and 7 fourth quarter comebacks. There was one very memorable thing about the Titans 2006 draft and that was a player selected in the seventh round and that player was CB Cortland Finnegan who ended up playing 133 games in his career and had 18 career interceptions. On December 3,2006 Rob Bironas booted a 60 yard FG to win a thrilling home game 20-17 with only 7 seconds left against the division rival Colts. Bironas also holds the NFL record for most FG made in one game with 8 against the Houston Texans in October 2007 and the last one was the game winner as time expired. Albert Haynesworth had two of the most dominant back to back performances ever seen by a defensive lineman and helped the Titans reach the postseason both those years 2007 and 2008. Haynesworth had 14.5 sacks,27 tackles for losses,37 QB hits those two years and parlayed it into becoming the first 100 million dollar man for a defensive line which the Skins signed him to but his best days would always be here. Another bright spot in 2008 was RB Chris Johnson was set the combine record for the fastest time ever 4.24 seconds and he didn’t waste no time showing how good he was and the very next year he set the NFL record for all purpose yardage and if not for a bad penalty call would’ve broken Eric Dickerson’s rushing record too but did manage to become just the sixth RB ever to go over 2000 yards in one season with 2006 yards. Johnson is the only player in NFL history to register 6 different runs in his career over 80 yards From 1999 through 2011 the team had never had more than two losing seasons in a row and had done very well mostly winning the first twelve years mostly due to good coaching by main stays HC Jeff Fisher,Offensive line coach Mike Munchak and DC’s like Gregg Williams,Jerry Gray and Jim Schwartz. Also drafting well with GM Floyd Reese helped a lot too but after Fisher left in 2011 there were a few lean years coming….. In 2011 the Titans would have a new head coach Mike Munchak,new GM Ruston Webster and new franchise QB Jake Locker. All three moves were mistakes especially Webster who couldn’t draft or put together a good team and Locker who simply was injury prone and couldn’t play well due to accuracy issues. Munchak was at his best coaching the line. 2012 through 2015 were all losing seasons due to bad QB play,bad drafting and the team wasn’t very good at all during this time. In 2014 Ken Whisenhunt was hired as new head coach replacing Mike Munchak. The team did have some good players at this time like WR Nate Washington,DT Jurrell Casey,DE Derrick Morgan along with Webster's best free agent signing TE Delanie Walker In 2015 the team drafted QB Marcus Mariota and things started to get better and Mariota in his very first game managed to have a perfect passer rating as well as being the youngest QB to ever achieve that feat in his first NFL game. Mid 2015 the Titans fired Ken Whisenhunt and replaced him with Mike Mularkey 2016 things started to really change as the Titans got their first good GM since Floyd Reese and his name was Jon Robinson and he immediately started making good moves like bringing in RB Demarco Murray who would lead the AFC in rushing as well as trading the teams number one pick in the draft for a bunch of extra picks including a first rounder the next year. Murray was one of the main reasons the team was able to experience winning once again because he helped the team build a successful running game for the first time in a good while In 2016 the Titans had a winning season at 9-7 and had drafted well too with picks like RT Jack Conklin to pair with LT Taylor Lewan,RB Derrick Henry and S Kevin Byard. The very next year Byard led the NFL in interceptions. Robinson was already proving better than his predecessors. In 2017 the Titans drafted players like Corey Davis,Adoree Jackson,Jayon Brown,etc. and had another winning season at 9-7 and this time made the AFC Playoffs as well. In the 2017 AFC Playoffs Marcus Mariota and the Titans pulled off the biggest playoff road comeback in NFL history coming back from 18 points down to win 22-21 at Kansas City. Mariota has managed to lead Titans to a better record every year since arriving as a rookie in 2015. Mariota has 12 game winning drives and 10 fourth quarter comebacks in his first 4 seasons. The Titans lost in the next postseason game at New England a place where Robinson spent the first 10 years of his scouting career. Speaking of New England the Titans and Robinson hired Mike Vrabel to be the teams new head coach replacing Mike Mularkey. In addition to that in free agency they signed RB Dion Lewis and CB Malcolm Butler as the Pats let them go. Also for 2018 they had a mostly defensive draft getting Rashaan Evans,Harold Landry and Dane Cruikshank. Also at this time the team changed their image up a bit with new uniforms and helmet the first major change since 1999 a good change going into the future….. The Titans finished 2018 with a 9-7 record which was the teams third straight winning season. Since starting as GM in 2016 GM Robinson has three straight winning seasons and he and the team will aim for a 4th straight winning year in 2019. The team recently closed the chapter on their first 20 seasons with three straight winning seasons and a playoff victory the year before. They finished with 170 wins overall and were just shy of being top 10 in overall wins their first 20 seasons. Looking forward to success and great times in the years ahead for Tennessee.

  13. Titans Officially Sign Adam Humphries

    This was my favorite signing of this 2019 free agency period. We needed this type of WR bad last year it might've helped especially all the times the pocket collapsed with Marcus looking around with no one to throw to leading to a sack. Now that we do have Humphries he will be like a second security blanket besides Delanie.With the line looking better already with Saffold signed and Conk coming back fully healthy and the possibility of another lineman in the draft i think the offense rebounds big time in '19. One last thing. Hump sticking with us even the BS pulled by New England makes me like really like him much more. He said Robinson stood up for him in Tampa a few years back now Hump returns the favor.
  14. 2019 Opponents

    Home: Colts Jags Texans Chiefs Chargers Bucs Saints Bills Away: Colts Jags Texans Broncos Raiders Falcons Panthers Browns I think we will do well. We have to start at least splitting games with Indy. Our secondary will have to play tough vs Mahomes. I think we can win home games vs Bills,Bucs,Texans,Jags and we need to win at least one of the games vs Chargers/Saints. Would like to at least go 6-2 at home or worst 5-3. On road games i think we can hang with Denver,Oakland,Carolina and it would be nice to win one road game of the two vs Jags/Texans. We need to stop Atlanta offense to have a shot there. Indy always tough at home and the last one at Browns those guys have built a good roster both sides of the ball look good not sure on that one. Would like to go 4-4 break even on the road games. If we play well Marcus stays healthy all year we should be right at 10-6 or 9-7.
