New, comment

Ranks_medium

Rankings for Week 2 after the jump. Our average spot is 7.

NFL.com's "experts" ranked us at #10.  Vic Carucci angers me. He ranked us 18. 18!!!  I refuse to believe that there are 17 better teams than the Titans.

ESPN puts us at #9, dropping us two spots from the preseason.

Mistakes in Pittsburgh kept the Titans from a potential upset, but Jeff Fisher won't let them dwell on the opener. (Kuharsky)

Yahoo! Sports is the smartest of the bunch, putting us at #3, and some awesome commentary.

Tennessee Titans: At his current weight, shouldn’t tight end Alge Crumpler be a registered weapon?

Pro Football Weekly, as mentioned in this morning's links, placed us at #8.

That's about as good as a team can look in defeat.

CBS Sportsline drops us 2 spots to #7, but still gives good commentary.

There were a lot of good things that came out of that opening-night loss. They just need to score more points and not blow good scoring chances.

Fox Sports' sees it how it is, putting us at #6, up 3 spots.

GLASS HALF FULL:Tennessee's defense answered the team's most critical offseason question: Could they still be a top-five defense without Defensive Player of the Year Albert Haynesworth? Guess so, seeing as they held the NFL champs to just one TD in 4+ quarters and 36 rushing yards in the Titans' opening-night loss at Pittsburgh.

Covers.com places us at the 8th spot, dropping us 1.

Tennessee put forth a gallant effort in Pittsburgh but special teams (two missed FG's) and the passing defense (321 yards) ultimately cost it the game.

What if Sports's unique "Power Predictions" put us at #13 with a 58.1% Confidence rating.
