RTC: Phillips wants to re-prove himself

Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…

Titans outside linebacker Shaun Phillips is looking to prove himself all over again, writes Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. "I am doing the same thing I have done my entire career, and that's a little bit of everything," Phillips said. "I know the best thing for me is to rush … whether I am in a two-point stance or three-point. And as long as I'm on the field, I'll be happy."

How quickly the Titans master Ray Horton’s 3-4 defense will tell the story for the Titans in a lot of ways, says John Glennon of The Tennessean. The early stages of a transitioning front can be difficult.

To which I say: I agree the Titans' D probably won’t be at its best in the first month of the season. But Houston and Indianapolis both recently had great success in their first seasons using the 3-4.

Ken Whisenhunt provides a reason for optimism but Jake Locker is the cause for panic. A Titans preview from Greg Pogue of Fox Sports Tennessee.
