    Not much to disagree with in that one. Surprisingly well written. No stupid mistakes like calling Kenny Britt "Kenny Bryant" or something dumb like that. Refreshing.

    This writer, Andy Benoit, actually has a strong understanding of the team. Impressive for a national guy.

    He calls his previews a "Deep Dive" which I think is just a lame attempt to sound smart by using trendy business world terminology. Outside of his analysis of Locker there is nothing that comes close to being a "Deep dive" in his article.

    Wow, finally someone who seems to know our team. I'll be remembering his name.

    Pretty good analysis that us Titans fans don't like to hear! I'm hoping that Locker and the defense takes a step or two forward.

    So he actually considers us average while most (uneducated) fans would consider us bottom 5.

    I'll take it.

    Yea it's hard to argue we're anything more than average, even I know we'll be about middle of the pack at the end of the day, maybe 9-10 wins does it for us though.

    The only real offense I take in that article is him saying
    While Locker certainly has not mastered this, playing in Chris Palmer's option read offense has made it much harder to look like you know whats going on

    Seeing a blitz and turning it into an opportunity isn't "primitive". Jake thought Cook would adjust to the play how he always tries to do.
