Tennessee_titans_30x21 The great part about having a talent like Chris Johnson on the roster is that when things are clicking, you could pretty much tell the defense what play is coming, and often enough they wouldn't be able to stop it:

As NFL analyst Rich Gannon visited San Francisco 49ers defensive coaches prior to their Nov. 8 game against the Titans, it didn't take him long to figure out their chief concern.

Protect the edges. Don't let Chris Johnson get to the outside.

"Then," Gannon said, "on the first play from scrimmage Johnson gets the ball and runs to the outside for (14) yards.''

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Johnson is at number 8 on PFW's MVP Meter... behind Adrian Peterson?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If Mario Williams wants back in the spotlight, then he better not try lining up against Michael Roos, because Roos has completely owned the former no. 1 draft pick his whole career.  WHile Williams has had flashes of success against us, it's never come one on one against Roos.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Must read article of the day: The AP polled 160 players (almost 10% of the league) with various questions about concussions and related issues.  The results are fascinating and a little scary.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Can we win out to save the season? FOX analyst and star of a soon-to-be-canceled sitcom Michael Strahan isn't saying yes, but he won't say no either.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 More on Bud's double barrel debacle from USA Today.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Bud is reuniting all of the surviving members of the original Houston Oilers team for Sunday and then the game Monday Night.  

Tennessee_titans_30x21 So Albert Hanyesworth is now friends with his stomping victimAndre Gurode.  Apparently they've gotten to hang out at the Pro Bowl a few years and really get along swell, which I'm sure just tickles Redskin fans pink.  I think Washington and Philly may be the rare fanbases where stomping on a Cowboys player's bare face would actually bolster your resume.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The big news in college football yesterday was the rapid outing of Kansas head coach Mark Mangino as an allegedly sadistic, physically abusive and racist mound of fatty corpuscles.  Titan reserve linebacker Mark Rivera played for Mangino, and plans on giving a formal interview to the administration within the next few days.  Because of the nature of the allegations and investigation Rivera wouldn't talk to the media first, but some of his teammates are, and they pretty much make Mangino look like a tough-nosed head coach who at times just had no sense of common decency... and these days things like this will probably get you a rightfully forced resignation:

"One day, [Mangino] said in front of the entire team, 'Are you going to be a lawyer or do you want to become an alcoholic like your Dad?' " Brown said.


Every time you read a great Titans-related story on the web and don't share it with the MCM community through the fanposts, fanshots or by emailing me at Matt Schaub gains one health point.  Is that what you want?!!!!?!?!
