    I'd say ''Dan Campbell'' if he were on the list.

    Wake has the flashy stats, but Suh was blowing up the pocket and drawing attention. Not sure Wake has his big day without Suh.

    That said, I'm going with Jones. He's been our most consistent defender all season and had yet another great game.

      I went with Jones also, he was always around the ball and there are some Titan players that are feeling it this morning.

    Honestly all 7 listed above deserve it along with every other player in that locker room. Great team win!

      Hi boys and girls. What a wonderful Monday morning! Woke up today with a big smile on my face. I forgot how good this feeling is. I know the city of Miami is feeling a lot better today. The energy! Oh man, the energy. I'm still buzzing. Anything our team lacked in talent, they overcame with energy, aggressiveness and teamwork. Congratulations and thank you Coach Campbell. Looking good. Total team performance. Great individual efforts all around. Reshad Jones, Cam Wake and Rishard Matthews all jump to mind immediately. However, when the Titans went down in the second half and scored a touchdown and then got the ball back right away, I had this moment of, "Oh no, not again." Grimes shuts it down with another incredible interception near the goal line. From that point on, one guy grabbed the reins of the team and the situation, made that field his, the whole field, dictated the action, masterfully utilized all of his skills and ALL of his weapons, ran his team away from the pack and cruised to a Secretariat style victory. Ryan Tannehill's second half performance made him my MVP for the game, hands down. The team created great energy and put us in great position and Tannehill won it for us. Tannehill led us to victory.
      Let's continue with all of the formational changes, the the double Tight Ends and max protects and hold off on that Tannehill trade for now. (I know some of you guys were getting impatient with him but we might have something here.)

        Good stuff. Thanks for posting. Just wait until Ajayi comes back and we get Parker going in the passing game.

        Hmmmmm, that would be you mostly followed closely by DF and as for the rest of your post, coming from you it sounds hollow. We'll see soon enough if you actually mean it.

      I think everyone understood that it was DF and I. That was sarcasm directed at us. And yes, it is high praise. I'm not the type to clap my hands and pat you on the back if you're not getting the job done. He deserves it. Just like he did two other games in his four year career. Let's see if he can live up to it. Finally, varied formations with some real play action.

        I think a lot of it was that his ankle was healthy for the first time since the Jags game and his pass pro was MUCH better as well as the coaches helped him out this game with a rushing attack and a balanced offense. He's not a guy who can make things happen on his own with 2/5ths of an OL and no balance on offense.

        Let's see if Dan and Lazor can continue to get more out of him.

      And while it didn't get the attention I think it deserved - putting Billy Turner into the game to start at RG was a definite upgrade... I know Shane and I discussed this a lot previously...

      Not only did Billy get up field and help set up Landry's TD run on the first drive, he played at a high level all game... he was decent in pass pro by using his hands and feet to buy time. He still lacks a solid base to anchor with and can get walked backward as he doesn't have a thick ''Guard-type'' frame, and his time at tackle trained him to play a little high. That's stuff that time, coaching and experience will help with.

      That said, he was an asset in the run game. He can run, he's very active, and he loves to take on LBs and DBs. He moves damned well for a big man and has a nasty streak. He had key blocks on both TD runs. On Landry's TD, Turner got up the field and interfered with 2 guys as they tried to cross the field get angles on Landry. He directly impacted that play and helped spring Landry. Also, he blocked one side of the lane that Miller cut back into for his TD.

      Hope they give Billy some love. Been awhile since we had a Guard that could get up-field like that. I know Dan was calling out Albert and Ju'waun James for a good game, but the only below average weakness yesterday was Dallas Thomas. If they can Billy to play a little lower and work on his anchoring, I think he can be a long term answer.

      As for Douglas, give him some time and move him back to the left side where he played in college.

        The deal with Turner is he's a very physical blocker. The ZBS doesn't fit him as well as the downhill, get off the ball, style does. I saw #77 blocking down field all day long..

          Little off topic here but certain eyes can't see here so I suspect you don't appreciate Mitch's pet name for RT any more than I do? I love Mitch like a brother but that nickname grates on me.

        Disclaimer - Wake was the obvious answer and deserves all the attention, but I picked Billy Turner. The main reason being what looked like a huge weakness all season, looked like a strength yesterday. Albert is obviously a big reason for the improved oline play, but Turner blocked well and was getting to the second level all day long.

          I agree, Turner did a good job in Nashville. Let's hope that he continues to do so...

          Now if we can get guys like Vigil to NOT commit stupid penalties, negating big plays..

        Turner has a very good and bordering elite punch. He also has quick feet but he needs to fire. Don't mistake what they did yesterday with not being a ZBS. They ran it, but ran more of the true version of a ZBS than the slide along the line that Philbin wanted. Now, there were times they did just man up and take the guy in front of them, but they were running the ZBS most of the time.
