A look at Titans' fiscal sense at WR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Not everything is as simple as a scorecard comparison with side-by-side stats. But as I watched Bernard Berrian drop a couple passes, one a relatively easy long TD, I thought it would be good to measure Berrian and Bobby Wade, the veterans who were lured to Minnesota as free agents the last few years, to Justin Gage and Justin McCareins the veterans who came to Nashville as free agents the last few years.

Darren Sharper, who should know, said after the game that the Titans receivers are "good enough" for the team to win.

Here's what they did in Sunday's Tennessee win over the Vikings and a look at their money:
