No. 5: Right Tackle David Stewart
Titans Tenure: 2006-2013
The former mammoth human being known as ‘Big Country’ was one of the more physically imposing forces to wear the two-tone blue. Standing at an intimidating six foot seven inches, Stewart often used his towering physique to manhandle the person across from them and wasn’t exactly shy about letting you hear about it. More often than not Stewart was a bully in the run game and was an immovable force in pass protection throughout the duration of his career.
The former Mississippi State product was seen as one of the bookend anchors on what was one of the best offensive lines in football on a consistent basis. However, you could make more than a strong enough argument that the best years of his career happened prior to this decade. His sole All-Pro selection (second team) took place in 2008 therefore I have Stewart ranked slightly lower than some of the other lineman of the decade.
With that being said, it was impossible to leave out one of the best lineman to ever wear the Titans uniform. The back half of his career came after 2009, and was wasted blocking for mediocre at best quarterback play for the majority of his time in Nashville. However, his talents and efforts can never be ignored or forgotten. Therefore, he’s earned the right to call himself the fifth best offensive lineman of the decade.
