Right Time, Wrong Place?...by Thom Abraham

The good news is that the Tennessee Titans seem to be on the rise. The defense is young and athletic, and if Albert Haynesworth is retained, can dominate again in '08. Vince Young can lead an offense that needs a game breaker, but has a solid line and a workhorse back in LenDale White. And Jeff Fisher is clearly one of the top coaches in the league...
The bad news is....the AFC South may have the best foursome of teams since the divisional realignment. The Colts aren't going anywhere anytime soon, the Jags look to be ahead of the Titans and Houston seems ready to breakout. The only thing that separated the 10-6 Titans and the 8-8 Texans was Tennessee's sweep of their Houston half-brothers. The fact is, the Titans would have won the NFC South or West, maybe the AFC North, and would have been no worse than 2nd in the AFC East or West, or the NFC East or North. Such is life in the NFL. The Titans could be better in '08 than they were in '07, and still battle for the final playoff spot...
