An opposing scout's view

" Steve McNair is obviously their MVP. He has a cannon, and he understands the game better. He's not trying to run as often, and when he does scramble, he's looking to make a play downfield. The big question is, Will he stay healthy?...

Eddie George isn't as dominant as he used to be. When you're a punishing runner and you carry the ball as much as he has, you tend to decline pretty fast....

They really don't have impressive talent at receiver. Frank Wycheck is getting old. Derrick Mason has quickness and good hands, but he doesn't have great deep speed....

Benji Olson and Zach Piller are as tough as nails. They aren't very mobile, but they're superaggressive at the point of attack....

I think their lack of depth at defensive tackle will be an issue. They have to hope Albert Haynesworth can hold up while playing more snaps....

I like the young safety Tank Williams. They have a very complicated system, and they rely on their safeties to make a lot of adjustments. He picked it up pretty fast....

This team will be good as long as the starters stay healthy. If the Titans have to rely on too many second-line guys, they're in trouble."
