Finnegan emerged this season as one of the best corners in the NFL. He quickly became a fan favorite because of his nasty play. While that play earned him the adoration of the fan base, it also seems to get him into trouble at times. He drew way to many personal foul calls this season, and got into a fight with Keith Bulluck during the Ravens game. That fight would have been a much bigger deal, IMO, if the Titans did not end up winning the game. Finnegan is still young and will learn more the longer he is in the league.

Mike Reinfeldt did a very smart thing last summer by locking up Finnegan because his price would have been a lot higher this summer. A lot of people had question marks about the Titans secondary heading into 2008. Somehow I think it will be regarded as their strength is 2009 after 3 of the 4 members went to the Pro Bowl.

**Site Note** August likes Albert so much that he decided to spend some time this morning in the same place that Albert has spent a lot of time lately. His morning links will be afternoon links today.
