Tennessee_titans_30x21 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.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 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...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 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:

What happens if Johnson does something like that again?

"I’ll cut him,’’ Fisher said on Monday with a smile.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 One of Norm Chows biggest failures as the Titans' offensive coordinator was last year's red zone futility, but our boys have come a long way in fixing that problem this year:
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.
Tennessee_titans_30x21 ESPN's Chris Sprow eats crow over not putting White/Johnson in his top RB combos list last week.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Congratulations to Lavelle Hawkins who logged his first 2 receptions last Sunday, and to WR Paul Williams, who was active for the first game of his career thrown to for the first time in his career.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If the Titans are going to wrestle Indy's stranglehold on the AFC South crown away this year, Monday Night is the place to put a boot to the throat.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Pro Football Weekly becomes the latest member of the Cortland Finnegan Man Crush Club.  People wishing to sign-up for the Michael Griffin Man Crush Club should direct all inquires to gramsey712; I believe he has jackets ready to go!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Colts are praying they can get at least Bob Sanders, and maybe Joeseph Addai, back in to the mix next Monday night.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 A tip of the 10-gallon cap to cityjane and Trenchanttitan for this one: Whether you're one of the lucky ones headed to the banks of the Cumberland next Monday for the Code Blue, or just looking for a good deal, here's a coupon for 15% off Code Blue apparel at the Titans Pro Shop.
