Keith discussed multiple aspects for how the Titans’ current season has gone, as well as other NFL trends, with the members of the 1999 AFC Championship team that appeared in Super Bowl XXXIV.

Bishop, a four-time Pro Bowl safety, said he’s liked what he’s seen from the free agents that Tennessee signed to improve its defense and has enjoyed the return of Gregg Williams to the coaching staff as a senior assistant.

“They’re just flying around, showing signs of what we used to have, one of those great defenses the years I played,” Bishop said. “They’re real close to being at an elite level defensive team and they’re right there on the cusp.”

One of the most interesting additions, Bishop said, is defensive end Ropati Pitoitua, who is tied for the team lead with four sacks (a career high).

“He’s stopping the running game,” Bishop said. “He’s making pressure on the quarterback, and I think that’s making it easier for the guys in the secondary to cover and the whole defense is playing a lot better.”

Dyson, a first-round selection in the 1998 NFL Draft who scored on the Music City Miracle, said he’s been pleased with the development of Jake Locker. Dyson and Bishop said Locker’s toughness reminds them of their teammate, the late Steve McNair.

“I love the progression he’s going through. I think they’ve done some things to help him out: give him some stationary targets,” Dyson told Keith. “He’s not getting a lot of moving routes. He’s doing some things there, but the biggest thing is players believe in him and have a trust in him. That’s the biggest difference, regardless of the skillset. You can tell a difference when he’s in there.”

    How long will the Titans be ranked 28th in yards per game before Dowell Loggains is replaced? Seahawks, 49ers, Steelers, but that’s still not an excuse. Chris Johnson is ranked 23rd in the NFL. The offense is full of top talent. If Kenny Britt is having a bad year, then maybe fans shouldn’t blame Britt. The offensive scheme and play calling hasn’t been taking advantage of other teams. Hopefully the Titans can do better with the weaker schedule after the bye, and they’ll make the playoffs and not lose to another .500+ team. If they lose to the Rams, then everyone will look forward to next year.

    I don’t think Dowell Loggains is doing a bad job at all, he’s working with a very young team and he hasn’t been an OC for a full season yet. If we let anybody go, we should fire Jerry Gray and give Gregg Williams the DC job for good. No disrespect intended, but Kenny Britt IS having a bad year and that IS his fault, Loggains isn’t making Britt drop passes or commit penalties. We’re half way throug the season and our 2nd year WR Kendall Wright already has as many catches as Britt did in his most productive year.
