The Titans are in the Super Bowl -- the only place to be

Tennessee Titans cornerback Samari Rolle, a second-year player out of Florida State, will share his thoughts on playing in the Super Bowl this week with CNNSI.com. We caught up with Rolle on Tuesday during Media Day at the Georgia Dome.

When he wasn't answering questions from some of the more than 3,000 media members in Atlanta for the game, he was videotaping the madness of the day with his personal camcorder.

ATLANTA -- This is great. I'm just trying to enjoy this moment, trying to suck it all up.

Nobody thought we would be here, and here we are.

Right here, right now: This is where I want to be.

Our coaches told us before we came down here what it was going to be like. They told us to enjoy the moment, but don't be silly about everything. I think that's the way we're approaching it all.

I'm getting a lot of questions about the Rams' offense, and whether I think we're capable of stopping them. I think we've been capable ever since I've been here. That's what we do.

We've been underdogs all along. Lots of people thought we would be 8-8 again. And now we're underdogs again.

[Rolle was told that in a recent CNNSI.com Instant Poll, 58 percent of more than 47,000 respondents picked the Titans to win the Super Bowl.]

Well, maybe our popularity is growing. Maybe fans are realizing how good we are. But I don't think we'll fully get respect until we win this thing.
