I hope Bell will be ready week 2. (Not sure if he will be.) Redman won't last long as a 20+ touch guy. He will get hurt if he carries the load for a few games, or maybe 1.

Week 2 would be awesome, but only if he's completely healed. One week too soon could be devastating to this team.

Wouldnt one of those issues be that we didnt have a quality RB playing against the Titans?

We will need a running game against the Bengals. I don't think many teams will be able to run for a lot of yards against the Bengals this year, but we need to at least pick up some decent runs and convert the 3rd and 1's.

Right on. This game is definitely a litmus test for us, right out of the gate.
Playing a weaker team at the home opener......winning this game and hopefully not struggling to do so will tell us how much we've grown since last season.
A loss at home to the Titans and the expected reactions, "well, it's only one game," "it's a long season," will ring pretty hollow.
Not saying the season is over with a loss, that's ridiculous.
But a loss points us back to the "should have won" games we lost last year.

I would love to see a thrashing this Sunday but I'll settle for a " Team in progress " squeak by win.

I think we should kill the Titans. First game of the season maybe not. If the Titans are on the schedule later in the season , I'm confident we will have gelled by then and destroy them.

If rather go 0-2 and have Bell for the rest of the season, than go 2-0 and have him miss the rest of the season.
