    A lot of guys have been downright terrible. There are a million threads to complain about those guys.

    Others haven't stepped up like we've hoped or have even regressed. Don't want to hear about that, either.

    Who has impressed you? I'll start.

    Akeem Ayers - I didn't like the pick. He showed flashes last year, but was mostly quiet. We still haven't seen that pass rushing ability that we hear about, but he has seriously stepped up from last year and has been very active. I think he is the real deal.

    Locker has looked good

    Ayers has been good

    Brown has looked much better than I thought

    Stevens has been decent

    Washington has kept things going

    Wright has looked good for how we are using him

    Cook seems to finally get it

    and I think that is all.......

    Martin has impressed me.

    Locker has shown some life.

    Ayers is doing well.

    Yeah. The passing game is fun to watch when it works.... and I absolutely love seeing our QB run for first downs.

    Agreed on Martin. I think Casey is starting to get back into the swing of things, too.

    Defense has managed to keep our PPG under 40.

    Go Team!

    Umm, if you asked me what has not been completely terrible I would have been able to list a couple of things. What has impressed me? Nothing.

    Time for some negativity in this positive thread. Here's what has happened:

    Locker managed to get injured twice in 4 games.
    McCarthy managed to make it through half a game.
    Britt managed to make it through half a game.

    The list above covers the only 3 players we have that are worth a dime.

    Our running game got even worse than last year (which was a difficult feat).
    Chris Johnson has made everyone hate him even more.
    Our pass blocking is worse.
    Our receivers haven't improved (it didn't get worse though!). Wright has been invisible.

    Our d-line is the same if not worse than last year. Wimbley hasn't helped.
    Our secondary is worse without Finnegan.
    Our LBs/coaches still haven't figured out that there's a TE position.

    Palmer has lost all confidence of fans/players.
    Gray has lost all confidence of fans/players.
    Munchak is still a spectator and refuses to change anything.

    I think that covers literally every aspect of a football team except special teams, coaches and players.

    Honestly, after reading my own post. It is very impressive to see how much this team has failed.

    What's really impressed me is that Roger Goodell hasn't disbanded the Titans for conduct detrimental to the league.

    Protect the shield!
