Thanks to Mwilson for passing along this awesome read from Mike Silver on what makes this Titans team so good and so fun to watch. No response yet from TV analysts who have forgotten that football can be fun without 400 yards passing, clownish WRs or Brett Favre to drool over.
As the Titans flooded the field with bench players late in the 4th, only 2 guys didn't make it into the game: Chris Davis and Vince Young. I'm awaiting a firestorm from Florio or Hoge saying this is an indictment of VY's ability to hand the ball off...
Jeff Fisher continues to have a great attitude regarding Crazy Legs' cabana style celebration Sunday, but that's largely because it put us up by about 30 late in the 4th quarter. However, don't go thinking we have the next celebration clown on the roster:

"I’ll cut him,’’ Fisher said on Monday with a smile.
Tennessee has had 18 red-zone possessions thus far in 2008 and has scored points on all 18 tries. More importantly, the Titans have scored 13 touchdowns in those 18 trips, a mark of 72.2 percent touchdown efficiency.How much of an improvement is that? Consider that last year, the Titans finished at league-worst 36.4 percent on scoring touchdowns from inside the opponent’s 20-yard line, meaning they have nearly doubled their efficiency in scoring there.
