Mr. Monday Night is ready for the curtain to go up. If Bulluck is half as good as he was against the Saints on MNF last year we're money.
Boom King continues to nurse his groin injury, and he won't guarantee he will be healthy by Monday. Let's hope he gets back and into form by game time because we're going to need the defensive line to be in full effect.
In preparation for the Monday Night showdown, the Tennessean's David Climer brings us the 5 most memorable Titans-Colts meetings.
Crazy Legs isn't happy about his $10,000 fine and plans to appeal it as excessive:
Johnson pointed out that Bengals receiver Chad Ocho Cinco's touchdown celebration against the Titans last season — he got behind a television camera and pointed it at the field — resulted in a $7,500 fine.
"I'll just have to watch what I can do,'' Johnson said of future celebrations. "I know you can't use props or anything like that. But I feel if Chad only got fined $7,500 for using a camera, I shouldn't be fined $10,000. That's not right.''
I'm hoping that he'll see those celebrations just aren't worth the cost on the ledger or on the field.
Paul Kuharsky discusses David Thorton, Nick Harper and Jake Scott, who all left the Colts to sign with the Titans over the past 3 years. The battle between Peyton and Harper will definitely be fun to watch, because I'm betting Cortland teaches Manning really quickly why nobody has thrown his way very much in weeks.
Gary Estwick shares some notes he picked-up while slyly looking over Ron Jaworski's shoulder in the film room, including the startling revelation that our WRs are trash:
2) Titans receivers continue to make QB Kerry Collins’ job tougher by failing to get off the line and separating from cornerbacks. Route running was also a problem at Kansas City.
BigW sends us this story, which asks just how good has the Titans pass defense been so far this year? I'd say Epic Success:
In fact, six games into the season, Tennessee has surrendered just one TD pass (that's 1, for those of you keeping score at home), which puts the Titans on a pace to surrender just three TD passes all year. They've added 10 INTs to the total, for a 1-to-10 TD-to-INT ratio that's virtually unprecedented in NFL history.
Enlightened reader JasonI send us this one of the more infuriating columns out there: Jason Whitlock continues to take shots at the Titans, but remember that this obese clown would write 2 fawning tomes a week if we had signed Jeff 'effing George. Instead, he says our defense isn't good enough and takes shots at Collins and Young.
Awesome-O commenter Hartley and I must have been reading this article at the same time: The Nashville Scene dives in to the Vince Young psychodrama. There's not really anything new here, but it does tell the story of how VY got to this point pretty well, and why so many folks shouldn't write him off just yet.
