Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Wyatt talks to a couple of the greats who have crossed the 2,0000 yard threshold and lived to tell about it... here's the key stat breakdown:

Through 11 games, Johnson averaged 126.9 yards per game. Over the last six games, however, he averaged 154.7. If he stays at that pace he'll finish with 2,170 yards and be the NFL's new single-season record holder.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Since Chris Johnson shows every defense why he's their daddy, and why he's going to get paid like crazy, why not call him Pappy Check... by Medeski Martin and Wood, who are without a doubt the greatest and most innovative jazz trio of the past two decades.  So take a deep breath, get funky and enjoy!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Guess who bought the Manning jersey Jeff Fisher wore 'for charity' (ed note: that rationale is still a crock, by the way.  Fisher could have worn anything even mildly football related, signed it and donated it for just as much benefit without pole jocking a bitter devision rival.) Country munchkin songstress Martina McBride.

Follow us through the jump for a taste of something magical...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Titans players know they're on the cusp of something magical, but that won't happen if they don't focus on each week's game like it's their last.  The have to remember they're 5-6, even when they're playing like they're 5-0.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Check-out the Sporting News' interview with safety Chris Hope, who says this game will prove if we're for real.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 LenDale says he ran out of gas, which made him late for the walkthrough and lead to his deactivation last week, but he's saying all the right things now about doing whatever it takes to make Fisher happy; even if that means being deactivated again should the team need it.  There's also a good note hear about former Seminole Chris Hope's reaction to the retirement of Bobby Bowden.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Hat tip to industrious reader/commenter JimR for point us towards this LA Times profile of CJ.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Michael Griffin plans on playing through his shoulder injury on Sunday.  Hey, maybe it'll stop him from trying to do too much in supporting the run game.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K delivers the book on the Vince Young 2.0, looking at all of his major failing from the first time around, and how he's laid them to rest so far this year.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I'm linking this not for the drivel from Joe Biddle, but for the hilariousness in the comments, where the first guy doesn't get that 'I bet on Germany in WWII.' is a joke.  Good times ensue. **UPDATE: This post has been removed by The Tennessean web hampsters.**

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Clark Judge tip-toes around it, but the truth in undeniable: Vince Young's resurgence is complete validation of Fisher's choice to fire Norm Chow and bring back the man he was comfortable with to mold VY. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The mad geniuses at KSK (despite settling on a terrible nickname for CJ) take a moment to roast Colts fans:


Derek [Colts fan]: ...I used to frequent Subway all the time even though some of their employees are jerks. Wanna know why?

Cashier: [Doesn't get a chance to speak]

Derek: Because Jared, their spokesguy, is a Colts fan. And people say the Colts aren’t a glamorous team!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Dwight Freeney was back at practice for the Colts, while left tackle Charlie Johnson sat out for a second straight day...



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 Peytoon Manning makes YET ANOTHER commercial.  Is that what you want?!!!!?!?!
