32 Teams in 30-Some Days - Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans

"Tennessee oh what I'd give to be back there once
again with all the old friends
Who were so kind to me oh Tennessee I was happy as could be
Never got too much done but livin' sure was fun in Tennessee

Don't sleep on the Titans - that's all I'm going to say. You may not remember, they were actually a playoff team last year. And they look to be better this year.

They have one of the most dominant defensive front fours in the league - probably THE most dominant. Albert Haynesworth is a destroyer of men. Kyle Van Den Bosch led the league in sacks a couple years ago. And now they have Javon Kearse back - who's not the player he used to be but still should be effective.

And then there's the Titans running game - which should hide the fact that they have absolutely no passing game to speak of. They have Chris Johnson and LenDale White - who from now on I'm going to call Jake and the Fat Man - and they're just going to run all over people.

If that wasn't enough, Vince Young is still there and he can run away just about whenever he wants.

The Verdict
With the Jaguars getting all kinds of love, I think that it might be the Titans who take a run at the colts. They have the defence and running game to win - and they might be the surprise team this year.
