The backup was former Carolina Panther, Dante Rosario. McMichael is an 11th ye...

Tennessee Titans: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#25)

Last week: 11 (-14) Record: 0-2 Before the season, I had the Titans as a playoff team. I thought they had a very strong supporting cast and that Jake Locker would be an upgrade over Matt Hasselbeck, who took this team to 9-7 last year as nothing more than a game manager. I felt that Chris Johnson would continue his strong running from the 2nd half of last season (4.8 YPC in the final...
