    I've got a little more info on both Roos and Pacman. First off, Roos. According to this website (granted it's not official, but a point of reference nonetheless), Roos has allowed only 3 sacks this year. Now, I'm sure RDE's have sacked Vince more than 3 times all year, but I figure they account for whether or not it is directly the fault of the OT (ie., holding the ball too long, scrambling into containment, etc.). Contrast that with someone like Walter Jones, who most think is the best LT in the NFL, who has had a horrible year and surrendered 10.5 sacks. Like I said, this site isn't official, but I doubt it is too far off.

    Then on Pacman, Football Outsiders named him to their All-Pro team along with Champ Bailey. This website is big on metrics when evaluating players, so it makes sense that Pac made it. Saw an article from one of their writers recently that had Pac with the highest stop % of corners in the NFL, and he was 7th in yards per play against. This was through 13 games, btw. For what it's worth, in this same chart, Finnegan was 6th in yards per pass play against. Reynaldo Hill was in the bottom 10.

    Also according to their metrics, Samari Rolle has the lowest stop % in the NFL and also the highest yards per play BY FAR. That is here:

    You have to scroll down just over 1/3 of the way to find the chart.

    hahhahhah ull never guess who those two defenders were that he steam rolled ...first a the d-linemen larry tripplet then london fletcher....ahhaha...two of their best players and both pro bowl quailty players..watch the highligh on titansonline.com and u'll see...i'm tellin u he is the ****....

    franchise OT??? already playin like this in his second year.....hell yeah!!!!

    there were two things said on fox btw during this yr that i thought u guys would enjoy ....one was that they called roos and stewart the titans' "unhearlded heros" and the other was they said that if the titans start makin the playoffs annually to expect to see roos in the pro bowl year after year....just thought i'd let u know i'm not the only one on his bandwagon. (u can bet that if we had mcneal and the chargers had roos ....roos would be in the all star game)


    sure mawae gets the credit but i bet if u wath the games u'll see he [roos] is possibly our best o-linemen...maybe not head of command thats mawae and he hellped all the OL men for sure to gel this season...but talent wise probably.

    Interesting. Roos has better stats than Marcus McNeill, who is in the hunt for Offensive ROY.

    I think we could get someone like Justin Blalock from UT to be a guard now and center of the future and we would have a dominate O line for many years to come.
