The 5-0 Titans Are A Force to Be Reckoned With

Zack KeoughContributor IOctober 12, 2008

The Tennessee Titans are 5-0 and have the top-ranked defense in the league. And yet nobody believes they are all that good. Well, bud, if you're one of those nonbelievers, I've got news for you: They are that good, and here is why.


1. The Entire Tennessee Titans Defense

They are just an outstanding group of guys. With the leadership of guys like Keith Bulluck, it seems like they can do no wrong. Albert Haynesworth, Kyle Vanden Bosch, and Jevon Kearse give the Titans the strong inside presence they need.


2. Coach Jeff Fisher

What can I say? The guy is a genius. He has taken a wild card team and transformed them into a championship-caliber one. Great job, coach!


3. The duo of Chris Johnson and LenDale White

Man, this is the type of duo every team in the NFL wishes it could acquire. The fastest man in the NFL with Johnson and a bruising running back with White. White does the beating with his size and Johnson burns them with his 4.24-second 40 speed.


4. Kerry Collins

He is the guy with the arm that has kept the offense rolling. He's completed 64-of-115 passes for 740 yards this season, with three touchdowns to show for it. Doesn't hurt that he has all the experience you could ask for in a quarterback.


5. Jim Schwartz and the coaches that have brought this hard-hitting Titans defense together

They say defense wins championships. If that is the case, the Titans are a sure-in for the Super Bowl. Keep up the good work, guys, all of the TRUE TITAN FANS appreciate everything you do.


Not enough reasons for you? Tune in and watch the Titans play the Kansas City Chiefs Oct. 19. The Titans' play is self-explanatory. Get a cold one, some Johnsonville brats, and find a good, comfortable seat, because I guarantee you will not want to miss a minute of the action.
