    Our defensive backs are basically Deion Sanders incarnate. I predict about 50 yards passing from Brady.

    J. Fisher rode off the backs of Munch and company. The Rams will see triple digit losses this year. Setting a new record of course.

    I do agree with him in the sense that many are putting too much faith in our d-line. It's drastically improved from last year - mainly with the addition of Wimbley, but also the potential growth of Morgan and Marks. That said, it's still hard for me to consider it any better than average as of right now.

    It could become a top 10 d-line, but that's not likely to happen this year.

    We added Wimbley and Marks/Morgan seem to be turning the corner. Casey and Klug speak for themselves. There's a difference between saying that we're top 10 and that we're top 20. Saying that we're one of the 12 bottom teams is idiotic.

    You should consider changing you username, I have yet to see one positive post out of you regarding the NE game.

    Well its kind of hard having faith considering that I last watched them beat us 59-0. Also the fact that we barely got any pressure on qb's last year and how the texans manhandled us last year. As did teams with really good offenses!

    It's not just faith in the d line alone it's the entire defence. Last year we had a short off-season and gray couldn't add a lot of stunts and things that he wanted early. This year we will have a much bigger play book, plus we added wimbley and Morgan is healthy for a change. Our LB core is much improved and the DB's have gotten better as well. I honestly think we will be able to pressure Brady enough to keep them from scoring 30 points it will be up to the offence to win the game.

    Once again our LB core is the exact same, with the addition of Brown (who wont see the field that much). Our dbs are the same minus finnegan (which in no way shape or form helps our db's). Verner and McCourty might be improved but there is still depth concerns and how good is Tommie Campbell gonna be? All I saw him do was get out jumped for a td by Braylon Edwards on a pass thrown by a rookie cb? Mouton sucks, plain and simple. So I just dont see where this crazy optimism is coming from?

    I have to ask where the Ravens hate comes from? They're in my top 3 as well (Jets/Colts/Ravens) but since they aren't a divisional rival of the Titans I'm wondering why you loathe them?

    For me its because they constantly cry like a *****. I don't wish injury on anyone but it will be nice that Terrel Thuggs will be on the sidelines this season.

    You obviously know nothing about the early Titans-Ravens rivalry from back in the day. It was one of the most heated rivalrys in its time.

    Used to be a divisional rival. Throughout our time as the Titans, they have been the cause of our greatest teams being knocked out of the playoffs. Either through bad calls or dirty plays.
