Why is it that teams that have a worse or equal record than the Titansare more recognized and talked about. And when we are talked about we're usually a second tier team with good not great players.(not including CJ2K). Because nothing bothers me more then when the analyst act like its a huge surprise when we when against a good team.
So according to this theory we have good players with great stats. i did a little research and compared some of the stats the great teams have and their "great" players. Of course we all know that Vince Younghas the second best passer rating in the league with 103.1. So why do the reporters and analyst say that he's not accurate on the deep ball when "great" players like Drew Breesand Brett Farve sport 92.6 and 69.8 respectively. Now since we already know we have the best running back in the league CJ2K will not be mentioned so I'll move on to WRs. Kenny Britt arguably has some of the better stats(434 yrds and 7TDs) and the the best game for a WR this season. But yet DeSean Jackson another "great" player has 395 yrds and 3 TDs but yet Kenny is still emerging as a Star.?On to the Defense. Stephen Tulloch is the leagues third leading tackler but when have you ever heard his name mentioned on
EAPN ESPN or NFL Network. But you hear "great" guys like James Harrison who has 49 tackles this year so far. You cant forget Jason Jones either. he may not have impressive stats (21 tackles 2 sacks) but he has been a disruptive force in our line this year. In my opinoin he has Albert Haynesworth potential. Proof of his disruption is the amount of sacks two of our "good" players Jason Babin and Dave Ball have (7 and 6 respectively). So when will the Titans finally get the attention we deserve. Maybe we will now that we have Randy Moss. But of course thats a huge maybe
