Tennessee_titans_30x21 Tom Gower has a great breakdown of how the Titans made a travashamockery of the Ravens' passing attack.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Gotta love checking out FO's new DVOA rankings and seeing this realistically optimistic bit about our boys:

The most surprising team so far may be Tennessee. The Titans come in with a rating of 38.5% after two weeks, making them the only 1-1 team in the top seven. Last week I noted that the Titans had a higher rating than Jacksonville despite losing a close game in Week 1. This week, of course, they had a significant victory over Baltimore. What's most remarkable is that the Titans are excelling in every way except the way conventional wisdom expects them to excel. The Titans have played well on defense, ranking third overall, third against the pass, and tenth against the run. They rank seventh in pass offense. But Chris Johnson and the running game rank a dismal 29th.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Boclair has a great piece on the relationship between Michael Griffin and Chris Hope, who have lined-up next to each other for every game since 2007. The two live just a house apart from each other and communicate almost like family. Another things they share: both players are playing on the last year of their contracts. Griffin could be back depending on how he plays this year and what the price is, but Hope is almost a lock to go elsewhere and possibly fight for a starting spot next season.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Tennessean knows 5 things about the Titans... even though the last two are clearly about the Broncos.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Denver signed former Texas star Quan Cosby to serve as WR and kick returner, which means the Broncos can add WR right behind QB in the list of positions Tim Tebow can't play capably for them.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans sure are working out a lot of RBs for a team that has 3 running backs and two fullbacks on the roster, plus at least one more RB on the practice squad.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Is it really news anymore when Kenny Britt's court dates get moved yet again?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans made a new enemy last Sunday: whiny truckers.
