It's a tall order to ask our boys to saddle-up against their best opponent of the year (yeah I said it) on a short week after a very emotional win on Monday Night. If they can win. however, it'll tie the franchise record for consecutive wins:
... the Titans approach a milestone that would tie them with the 1993 Houston Oilers for the most consecutive wins in franchise history. (That ’93 Oilers team, however, is best remembered for defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan taking a sideline swing at offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride in a game).
Paul Kuharsky goes in-depth with Smash and confirms that LenDale really is as happy as he seems to be with his new role, and he relishes all of those TDs like a big brat with... well... relish.
Haynesworth is chomping at the bit to face his old University of Tennessee teammates, and current Packers, Chad Clifton and Scott Wells. Something tells me they aren't nearly as excited to see big Albert coming at them!
Brandon Jones laments about choosing between football and baseball... who knew he was drafted by the Yankees coming out of high school?
Ex-Bills/Titans/Broncos running back and pater familias extraordinaire Travis Henry plead not guilty to charges related to his cocaine trafficking.
Phillip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star puts Albert Haynesworth in his top 5 MVP nominees. There's no chance of that happening, but he makes a solid point:
The first inclination is to say not a chance. But not so fast. What if the unbeaten Titans finish with the best record and Haynesworth is among the league's sack leaders?
The 320-pound force has six sacks in as many games, which ties his season high set last year. And he anchors the top defense in fewest points allowed at 11 per game.
It's been that kind of season . . . why not?
