    Yep, we should be very happy with we have been getting from the last 2 drafts...

    Last year we got a starting DT in casey, a starting MLB in Colin, a starting OLB in Ayers, Campbell is proving to be a solid corner with great upside too, then and a very effective situational pass rusher from the middle in Klug. We got our new starting QB in Locker

    I mean..some it's too early to tell but during the fisher years it was hard to find more than 2 players who would contribute from each draft.
    Now in 2012 brown definitely has huge potential, then we find Wright who seems to be a very nice weapon, a TE in Thompson who could become a huge asset, Another strong and explosive DT in martin. While probably not as deep as last year's draft, i think all of these 4 guys have a chance to become quite impressive players.


    Last year we got 6. Let's see how the 2012 rookies do but most of them seem to find a way to get playing time

    Love it

    No way the Titans trade Colin McCarthy. He is a leader and a role modle for all LB's. What he did as a rookie was incredible...and now that he's a second year man he can only get better!

    Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy picked off two Arizona passes, bringing his preseason total to three in as many games. McCarthy returned his second interception 31 yards for a touchdown, giving the Titans a 23-10 lead six seconds into the third quarter.

    “We were just playing good defense,” McCarthy said. “I think our D-line was getting a lot of pressure up front, causing them to make bad decisions with the football. It’s a whole defense. We were all running around, making plays.”

    McCarthy put together quite a stat line, producing seven tackles (six solo), two tackles for loss and two passes defensed in addition to his interceptions.

    Overall, the defense came up with five turnovers — three interceptions and two fumble recoveries. The Titans have produced nine turnovers in three preseason games.

    “That’s huge,” McCarthy said. “What we do in the preseason is going to build into the regular season. We realize that. We’ve been consistent.”

    And apparently better coverage skills. The guy's a monster. Him and Casey were knocking heads off.

    McCarthy has as many interceptions last night as Stephen Tulloch had during his entire Titans career.
