There was a lot of talk before the season about needing a major upgrade on the defensive line. Pretty much everyone that posted here, myself included, thought that the Titans were crazy for not using a first day draft pick on a defensive lineman. Of course there was White, who has been remarkably quiet about how right he was. If I were him I would have something in my signature calling everyone else an idiot. Anyways, this Titans defensive front is playing better than anyone else in the league. Check out this paragraph from an article in today's Tennessean:
I hope the Titans are able to re-sign all of those guys. Odom, LaBoy and Haynesworth are all free agents at the end of the season. Mike Reinfeldt should be negotiating with all of their agents now. Their price is just going to continue to go up with every passing game.
The Titans secondary played much better than they did last week. Michael Griffin was given his 1st career start at safety and from all accounts played well. Jim Schwartz said that when a safety goes unnoticed in a game that probably means he played well. I am really excited to see what the combination of Griffin and Chris Hope is going to do for this team.
It is great to know that when the offense is struggling the defense is going to pick up the slack. The Titans will be able to hang with any team they face as long as the defense continues to play as well as they have been. This team is really starting to remind me of the 1999 team. I am not saying they are as good as that team was yet, but it seems to be a very similar make-up. If that doesn't make you excited I don't know what will.
