Tennessee_titans_30x21Rennie Curran's life story is really inspiring. His parents moved to American in the 1980's because his mother wanted to help improve education in the States. While they were here, war started in their home country of Liberia and they were forced to stay put in America. They then dedicated the next part of their  life to bring family members to America for a safer life. This has got to be one of the most storied draft classes in NFL history.

Tennessee_titans_30x21And he can play. Sunday's feature Titans article in the Tennessean was about Curran. Former Falcons Pro Bowl linebacker Jessie Tuggle, undersized like Curran, took him up as a protégé. Linebackers coach Dave McGinnis also has a history with small linebackers, from Mike Singletary to Stephen Tulloch.

Tennessee_titans_30x21With Stephen Tulloch, David Thornton, and Keith Bulluck absent at minicamp, the linebacker leader is probably second year Gerald McRath. There are huge expectations for him this year as he and Will Witherspoon try to replace Bulluck.

Tennessee_titans_30x21The Titans2011 Madden rating is a 77, down just 2 points from 2010's 79. Just average. In my opinion it should be a few points lower.

Tennessee_titans_30x21David Boclair from the City Paper makes yet another case to not pay Chris Johnson. He compares CJ to all the other 2000 yard rushers, and explains that he can only go down from here. Anyone who is expecting another 2000 yard season better be ready for disappointment.
