Tennessee_titans_30x21 Somebody add another axle to the bandwagon because we're 6-0 and people from all over will be jumping aboard once we inviscerate Indy next week!!!!!!!!!!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 LenDale White became the first Titan to rush for 3 TDs in one game since Eddie George did it in 2000, and White combined with Crazy Legs to set a new franchise record for rushing with 332 yards total.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How's this for run defense: the Titans held the Chiefs to 41 yards on 13 carries, and racked up 8 tackles for loss.  That's what happens when you set-up camp in your opponent's backfield...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 These Titans are prefect at being humble as well.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Lavelle 'The Hawk' Hawkins had a huge impact on Sunday's game, but not with his receiving prowess:

Rookie receiver Lavelle Hawkins used his hands to help the Titans beat the Chiefs on Sunday, catching two passes for 11 yards in his first NFL start.

Yet his best work was done without a football in his grasp — shielding running backs Chris Johnson and LenDale White with downfield blocking that helped spark a franchise single-game rushing record.
Tennessee_titans_30x21 Even more reasons I can't wait for next Monday night:
In addition to "Code Blue" for the Colts-Titans game — 68,000 light blue T-shirts will be handed out to fans as they enter LP Field — Hank Williams Jr. is slated to sing the national anthem and former Titans quarterback Steve McNair will serve as honorary captain.
Tennessee_titans_30x21 Something tells me Goodell will level a big fine against Crazy Legs for his  bongo filled celebration Sunday, but who cares.  It was sweet to see the guys have a little fun in a rout.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If you're going to constantly whine about officiating, at least be correct in your basic facts... the refs nailed that FG call.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Peter King comes through with a Keith Bulluck quote that sums up why these guys just keep winning:
1. I think I like the Titans' level-headedness. I asked Keith Bulluck if he thought the Titans, the only unbeaten team left in football, should be considered the league's best team, and he responded the way he should have -- that this isn't college football, and polls are not involved. "Too early to think about that anyway,'' he said. "We just have to go out every week and play with this kind of intensity. What we talked about before this game was, 'We can't let [the Chiefs] stay in it and think they can play with us. Get on 'em early.' '' I'd say a 34-10 win, with 334 pulverizing rushing yards, did the trick.
