PostSubject: Stopping the Vikings!   Sat Sep 27, 2008 12:39 am

I believe we'll be ready for Minnesota this Sunday. I'm sure they worked on stopping the run just like they did in the Jacksonville game. One of the keys will be to keep the Viking Offense off the field as much as possible. Collins can keep the chains moving as long as Fisher doesn't start thinking that a couple of scores is a safe lead to start running clock off with. Cinci and the Texans tried alot of Blitz schemes on Collins only to be dogged by short screens over the Defenses. I don't want to see anyone intentionally hurt but we need to punish Peterson with hard tackles on every run. He has hamstring problems now and I don't think he'll hold up in this Tenn. heat. After seeing the Titans D bow their backs in all 3 games so far, I think we have a good chance of going 4-0. Getting back to our Offense, Collins is pretty quick about his decision making and pulling the trigger. So far Heimerdinger has anticipated how to handle what other teams throw at us. Furotte is going to find out what real crowd noise is and I think He'll get a taste of LP field turf thanks to Vandenbosch, Haynesworth, and Kearse. Oh yea, don't be surprised if Cortland Finnegan has another interception or two!....GO TITANS

I am all for knocking guys out with clean hits. David Thorton breaking Ben Utecht in half to start the Bengals game is a pretty good example. I know Keith Bulluck is the leader of our defense and the defensive line is what we talk about the most but let me tell you that David Thornton is as or more important as anyone on the defensive side of the ball.

Good point about Thornton, he's all over the field and is there a better coverage linebacker in the NFL? I don't think so. But the incredible job by the guys up front frees the linebackers up to do so much. Other teams don't have the luxury of letting there d-line provide pretty much all the pass rush. The Titans don't have to bring linebackers and that lets Bullock and Thornton drop back in coverage and make big plays all over the field.
