Titans linebacker Shaun Phillips sings praises of 3-4

Shaun Phillips had by all accounts a pretty productive season as a defensive end with the Broncos last year. In their 4-3 defense he piled up 10 sacks — the third-highest total of his career — and added 35 tackles, five pass break-ups and a pair of forced fumbles for a Super Bowl team.
