    I think Albert Haynesworth is a little undervalued here. Remember, he did not start to suck hard until after he left Tennessee.

    Yeah, at his peak, he actually was. He was totally ignored by the national media... sucks that even Titans fans don't remember how good he really was. I recall watching games where teams wouldn't throw a ball his way for nearly four quarters and only at games end in desperation would they look his way (and more often than not he'd make them pay). He was sneaky smart CB and tried to bait QB's into throwing his way (ala Prime Time). The thing with Rolle was that he was totally brittle... almost every time he was forced to make a tackle he'd get dinged up.

    I'm certainly biased as he was my favorite Titan, but because he was my favorite Titan I'd re-watch entire games focusing solely on him.

    Jeeebus it's nasty humid here today. I'm off for a for a nice long morning cycling excursion... I'll probably sweat off 5lbs.

    rolle was an excellent corner. if he had played in the superbowl, we would have had a ring. rolle was the definition of a shutdown corner

    Man was Rolle good. That was back in the days when we played man D all the time. Anyone remember the pick 6 he had against Washington on Monday night? Right at the end of the first half. Took him forever to get into the end zone dodging all the tackles. He made it then collapsed on his back.

    I guess my choices reflect that I've not liked much about us recently. Goddfrey would have been on list but only had 3 seasons. Mason is traitor. Bishop was awesome but I'll always remember him as an Oiler even though had more seasons as a Titan

    Eddie was a quality player for 5 seasons. 10K doesn't mean as much any longer there are several 10K backs who will not ever be in the hall of fame.

    Eddie was never all of our offense either. Wycheck, Mason and Mcnair are on every top 10 list so what side of the ball did they play on?

    I had Eddie in my top 10 over some good players so it is not like i was bashing him i just don't think he was better than some of these other guys.Some guys have him 1 or 2 which is preposterous.

    Name another quality back that era who had a long career and only averaged 3.6 yards a carry?

    Too dumb to bother with.

    McNair and Mason didn't really break out until Eddie hit the wall though. Eddie was our offense until 2001.
