Tennessee_titans_30x21 FO asks, which NFL superstar is having the worse season: Chris Johnson (I think we all know why) or Larry Fitzgerald (who is 74th out of 86 receivers on the DYAR scale). Oh, and by some miracle our total defense still ranks 4th.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Rick Gosselin of the Dallas News scouts the Titans, focusing mainly on Vince Young, which is shocking that a Texas-based news outlet would focus on Vince Young.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Justin Gage, who will mss a few weeks with a hamstring injury, talked with kids at DuPont Hadley Middle School in Hermitage, TN about the importance of taking care of health, sports and academics.
