The Pro Bowl is still plenty away, but the voting has started and believe it or not, there are quite a few players from the Tennessee Titans that have pulled their own weight that could possibly be considered to go to the event.
When you look at the season as a whole, no the Titans have not had a very impressive year. But when you individually, some of them have. Let’s take for instance, a guy who has shown up in every game this year; Titans kicker Rob Bironas. He is one of the most consistently accurate kickers in the NFL right now and has been the key to some of the Titans wins including the field goal made with four second left on the clock on that Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
So everyone knows that Chris Johnson has not been the most consistent running back this season, and when you look at other backs in the league, there isn’t a lot to compare to despite the fact that he is now having games with one hundred plus yards. He can’t even beat out Arian Foster for the best in the division. But when you look at what he is capable of, sure he could be considered.
Michael Roos is a quiet player. But he is effective. You don’t often hear a whole lot about the offensive line, mainly because it’s the guys catching the ball, but Roos has been a very solid block of a tackle for both Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker all season.
Kamerion Wimbley may not have as many tackles as Derrick Morgan, his fellow defensive end, but he sure is an impact player for the Titans. I would like to see him force a few more fumbles though. That kind of impact is what could turn this Titans season around.
If only Colin McCarthy could stay healthy he would be a great person to nominate for the Pro Bowl. He has done great things being the captain of the defense but when you have linebackers out there compared to guys line Brian Urlacher, you have to take durability much into conversation.
Remember the cornerback concern after the team did not exercise the franchise tag on Cortland Finnegan. The only problem that has occurred really isn’t a problem. Both Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner are very good corners.
Case and point is again, the Titans might be 4-6 going into their week eleven bye, but had they not had these players, they might not even have those four wins.
