After a three-game winning streak compiled under the auspices of once-embattled quarterback Vince Young, Titans fans are whispering the p-word to each other. To the outside world, of course, the idea of Tennessee's overcoming an 0-6 start to make the playoffs brings out the best in Jim Mora Sr. impressions.
