    Really? Two first round picks and two 2nd round picks in the last few years went to the offensive line, which as we all know, is consistently horrible.

    Screw their ranking. They don't make plays and they are overrated.

    Yesterday is a perfect example of what I tell you people, that safety occurred and after the free kick the offense held the ball for almost 7 minutes, thus making the defense look "great". Redman then fumbles in the endzone.

    So the Titans get a touchback, the same touch back they would have gotten had Redman scored and what happens?

    The Titans get three first downs on their first drive, and flip the field.

    Only this time around, the Haley paint dry offense didn't work, so the defense was on the field a lot more than usual.

    LeBeau is out to lunch. Jarvis Jones crunching hit on CJ livened up what was a pretty dead crowd.

    But the next defensive series? Jones was on the sidelines, and the Titans went right down the field and scored.

    But don't question "the Legend" after all, they are the #3 "ranked" defense.

    Those are rookie contracts, right?

    The BIG money, the SECOND contract money, has gone to the defense.

    The biggest disparity between offensive and defensive money last year? The Steelers.

    he wasn't the only one to miss a tackle on that play.

    Well, Larry Foote won't be missing any more tackles this year. The Steelers are going to miss him on the inside.

    On the drive where TN scored its TD, yes, the D got run over and could not stop it. Otherwise, I thought the D was pretty effective, especially considering how much time they spent on the field.

    Ran over? At 2.7 YpC?

    The Steelers invested and committed to the offense with those selections. Problem is the line would be just as good with a couple 7th rounders, ufa's, and an out of shape sports radio dj.
