Norm Chow is going to have a tough time running his system at this level. He's going to see better coaching, better personnel and better schemes. It was hard for people to match up with USC because they had more talent than everybody else, but that won't be the case with the Titans.... Drew Bennett is a talented player who benefited from having Derrick Mason on the other side. Now Bennett becomes the focus [of the passing game], and he's just not that kind of player.... Erron Kinney blocks well, runs good routes and catches the ball consistently, but he hasn't gotten much recognition because their offense hasn't featured the tight end.... On defense Albert Haynesworth has got to show that he can be a leader on the line. He's going to get double-teamed a lot, so he has to avoid getting frustrated.... Linebacker should be the strength of this unit. Keith Bulluck can cover, blitz and play the run as well as any player at the outside position. Peter Sirmon is instinctive and handles himself well in space.... They're solid at safety with Lamont Thompson and Tank Williams, but their big questions will be at cornerback. Pacman Jones and Andre Woolfolk need to grow up fast.

" Albert Haynesworth has got to show that he can be a leader on the defensive line."
