If you listen to Titans center Kevin Mawae, the formula for going undefeated seems pretty simple: Work hard, and don't have players like Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson and Tony Romo cavorting around, acting like superstars.
No, seriously, that's basically what he said.
Tennessee Titans center Kevin Mawae couldn't help himself.
"We don't have a Terrell Owens," he said. "We don't have a Chad Johnson. We don't have Tony Romo dating superstars. We just have a bunch of guys that play hard and work hard."

I don't think he's that far off in terms of how an underrated group of players can succeed by busting their tails, but at the same time, it might be a bit of a stretch to simply call out the Cowboys for losing simply based on the fact that Owens is on the roster and Romo is dating a superstar. After all, isn't it really Romo not playing that's sinking the good ship Dallas right now?
As for the Bengals' inability to win, no doubt Ocho Cinco's inability to really produce a good season hurts them, but again, having Ryan Fitzpatrick calling the signals and not really employing any semblance of an offensive line.
But hey, if Mawae wants to suddenly hop on a high horse because the Titans are seemingly unstoppable, who am I to tell him that he's still hiking the ball to Kerry Collins?
