Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Vintage Fisherball Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 8-0... Wow. Just... wow.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Against one of the best passing offenses in the league, or boys showed the bend but don't break style that we've long employed against the Colts.  I expect to see a more smash mouth effort against the Bears next week, especially if Sexy Rexy is in the pocket.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 This was a tough win coming off of a short week and an emotional win over the Colts, but the Titans continue to focus on the task at hand with uncanny steadiness.  You could have swapped a few names and numbers out there and convinced me it was 1999 again because that game was the exact kind of heart attack-inducing slugfest Fisher has mastered over the past decade.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Not sure if the announcers explained it since I was at a packed bar for the game, but the Tennessean got an explanation for the confusing series of set-ups right before the half:

With three seconds remaining in the first half, the Titans lined up Rob Bironas for a 63-yard field attempt. After a timeout, Green Bay sent a return man into the game in the event Bironas' kick fell short.

With the returner in position, the Titans snapped the ball to holder Craig Hentrich, who took a couple of steps forward and then took a knee, ending the half.

"In my mind, I was ready to kick it," said Bironas. " … The only problem you have is that it's 63 yards. If it doesn't get there, you've got a returner bringing it back against nine linemen so the odds are he's going to be a lot quicker than the rest of us out there."

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How freaky is it for LenDale to be the RB who averages 9.7 yards pre carry on 0 TDs, while Crazy Legs ended the game with 3.7 ypc, and a TD?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Boom King's day ended early, but Jacob Ford (2 sacks and a forced fumble) responded with the  game of his life right when we needed it.  The depth on the defensive line has been much, much better than it was last year and it's helped to probably 2 wins we wouldn't have been able to close out last year.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW shows some love to Stephen Tulloch, who did an exceptional job covering for Bullock Sunday.  Dave McGinnis has done an exceptional job teaching Tulloch how to harness his athleticism and play like a true pro, which makes Fowler one of the league's premier back-up MLBs. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Peter King still has the Giants ahead of the Titans: how does this man feed and clothe himself with such little brain activity? 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Is it time for the Titans to start tuning up for the playoffs?  This is the kind of talk our guys have to block-out moving forward.
