    SUMMARY: After recording 12 1/2 sacks his first season, DE Kyle Vanden Bosch was the focus of many opposing OL last season. He was often double-teamed and chipped at the line which caused his sack number to decline to 6 1/2. The Titans not getting enough pressure from the right DE spot also impacted his production though his tackles and QB pressures actually increased. His goal entering the 2007 season is to possibly be on the field less but be more productive with his opportunities. He plans on playing 10 pounds lighter this season which he hope aids his jump and speed. "I am trying to be more explosive, with more pop," KVB said. "When you are getting 60-65 plays per game, it is kind of like running a marathon. I'd like to be able to get to the point where I'm maybe not taking all the reps, but I can be more explosive and approach the game maybe like 45-50 sprints instead of being in there every play. I really want to be able to look like I am shot out of a cannon on every snap."

    Our team seems to like to talk about what they want and what they are going to do.

    How about this.............perform up to par and then talk and if you don't, don't say jack and get outta Tennessee.

    KVB did this because when he started seeing triple teams bc no one else could get a pass rush on the line, he knew he needed speed, wht was he held to last year, like 5 sacks from a previous 12 and a Pro Bowl?

    so what your saying is KVB warrants a triple team and the O-Lines other 2 guys block our 3. I know our D-Line is bad but come on this is the NFL.
