2.  The Offensive Line Looks Nasty

There were times during the 2012 Titans campaign that I suspected the brass of walking 2nd Ave. Saturday night, kidnapping a few big ole boys while in a drunken coma and putting them in a Titans uniform to block for Jake and CJ Sunday at noon.

This year, however, the line is as deep as a thought from Jack Handey.  At center alone, the Titans are auditioning Fernando Velasco, Chris Spencer, Rob Turner, and the rookie, Brian Schwenke for a starting role.  With the exception of the rookie, all of those players can play elsewhere on the line.

The offensive line also looks to have a bit of a mean streak.  The Washington Redskins were a top-five rush defense last year and the Titans offensive line opened gaping holes for Smash and Dash 2.0 to run through.  Aside from making Jake Locker into a sack lunch twice, the line looked pretty good for their first time playing together.  They should only get better as they have time to build chemistry.
