RTC: Pros and cons of the OLBs

Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans...

Thanks to Tania Ganguli for posting some RTCs while I watched non-stop soccer last week.

Here's for a solid team beating a better group of individuals when the U.S. men's national team faces Belgium Tuesday.


Ken Whisenhunt’s had success with three quarterbacks of three different shapes and sizes. David Climer of The Tennessean sees Jake Locker being molded to the system as opposed to the system being molded to Locker.

To which I say: It’s too early to have much of a feel for if that is accurate. And Whisenhunt would be operating counter to what he says about playing to people’s strengths if he tried to force Locker to be strictly a pocket passer, though he needs to grow more comfortable there.

What should the Titans do with key guys heading into their final season under contract? Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean offers his take on each.

The pros and cons of each outside linebacker who figures to get time in the Titans' defense, from John Glennon of The Tennessean.

To which I say: If all four -- Kamerion Wimbley, Shaun Phillips, Derrick Morgan and Akeem Ayers -- play to their potential, the Titans could have a nice four-pack. Having a quality pool of outside linebackers in a 3-4 is a necessity. But I can't see all four playing to their potential. Ayers hasn't shown much in three seasons, and while Morgan's a good player, he's moving to a new position.

Eddie George gave a strong message to NFL rookies, says Will Lomas of Music City Miracles building on a Jeff Darlington tweet.
