'It's an ugly sport:' Titans fans need to accept this is who their team is right now

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Nissan Stadium was hardly full Sunday.

And maybe there was a bit of a turning point in there.

There was less negative overreaction from the fanbase, and I sensed more buzz.

Whether there is or isn't, it's time for fans to accept this team for who it is. It's not going to win beauty contests, but it is going to win games. And as Delanie Walker told me, "Who said football was pretty? It's ugly, It's an ugly sport."
