It is time to take a look at where the so-called experts think the Titans rank against the other teams of the NFL.
LenDale White this season: 670 yards rushing/receiving, 5 TDs. Former USC teammate Reggie Bush in New Orleans: 711 yards rushing/ receiving, 5 TDs. White was the 45th overall pick in '06; Bush was 2nd. Hey, we're just saying ...
The Titans' defense did it again. Making up for yet another sub-par day from Vince Young, the Tennessee defense kept the Panthers bottled up and flustered all afternoon in Nashville. Albert Haynesworth recorded three sacks, as the Titans recorded a season-high seven sacks in the game. The D held their opponents to 14 or fewer points for the sixth time this season. LenDale White, meanwhile, finished with 100 yards, his third straight game of 100 rushing yards or more. With a suffocating defense and a pounding rushing attack, Tennessee's 6-2 and right in the thick of the AFC playoff picture.
The Titans improved to four games above .500 thanks to holding the Panthers to under 200 yards of offense. Additionally, Tennessee gained 1 game on the Colts, thanks to New England's come from behind win at Indianapolis. The Titans also moved 1 game ahead of the Jaguars who lost at Tampa Bay.
Three straight victories for the streaking Titans. Vince Young was less than perfect, but the Titan D teed off on Carr and the Panther offense, logging seven sacks, limiting Carolina to one meaningless TD, and dishing out a concussion for Carr.
It's all about the defense with this team. They get after the passer. Jim Schwartz is doing a heck of a job.
LenDale White might be better than Reggie Bush.
Albert Haynesworth continues to be a one-man wrecking crew.
Combined record of the six teams they have beat: 21-28. Can you say ... FRAUD?
This week's average is 6.88.
