Tennessee_titans_30x21 Wednesday night the NFL Network will air "Steve McNair: A Football Life", so stock-up on your tissue supplies and settle in for what promises to be a must-watch TV event for Titans fans everywhere.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFF reminds us that while he hasn't been closing the deal with sacks, Kamerion Wimbley has been effective at putting pressure on the passer:

Titans Defense: The nine hurries Kamerion Wimbley managed equal his season best from Week 2. In all the other games combined he's managed nine combined sacks, hits, and hurries.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 While the LB corps of the Titans continues to struggle covering TEs, there's a lot to like about this group of young, fast and talented backers. The would most likely grade out as one of the fastest LB units in the league, and as McCarthy, Brown and Ayers get more experience we could be watching these young guys blossom into the cornerstone of our defense for years to come.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Mike Martin continues to impress coaches, teammates and fans alike with his play. Coming off of the best game of his young career, Munchak made no secret of his love for the rookie's skills:

"I think when we drafted him we felt really good about him and I think we all felt he could contribute right away like Casey did, like (Karl) Klug did," coach Mike Munchak said. "He's hard to block. That's why we like him. He beats double teams, he's hard to block in the zone game when the center is trying to reach him on the back.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How's this for the opposite of consistency: Since Mike Munchak took over, Kendall Wright has more starts (5) than Kenny Britt (4). As such, Kenny really is like a rookie who is still learning Chris Palmer's system.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Wish we could have been the team to do it, but it's always nice to see the Texans get their head handed to them.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFF loves the talent we have at DT, and points out that Casey and Martin are both in the top 10 DTs when it comes to run stuffing.
