Funny stuff:

Tennessee Titans (Last Year: 10-6)

2008 NFL Draft Picks:

24. Chris Johnson, RB, East Carolina
The Titans are either really dumb or really smart. I say that because they either didn't learn a single lesson from drafting Chris Henry last year. Or, they want Vince Young to fail. Either way, Tennessee is not putting itself in the best position to win. This is a huge reach. (Pick Grade: F)

54. Jason Jones, DE, Michigan State
I'm going to copy-paste this out of my 2008 Live NFL Draft Blog because I can't think of anything better to say here:

Dear Vince Young,

We hate you. We will never give you a good receiver. We will surround you with crap like Justin McCareins and Eric Moulds. We want you to fail. We will salt your wounds and burn your lands. Death to the Philistines!

Sincerely,

Titans Front Office (Pick Grade: F)

85. Craig Stevens, TE, California
What a surprise, the Titans pass on a receiver once again and reach for another player. (Pick Grade: D)

103. Williams Hayes, DE, Winston-Salem
Who!?!??!? This is the equivalent of a guy taking Rex Grossman in the ninth round of a fantasy league because he forgot his fantasy mag and is running out of players off the top of his head. Williams Hayes may also be an assassin the Titans front office has hired to take out Vince Young. (Pick Grade: F-)

Yeah I was scratching my head with their first pick..... perhaps they are trying to save on their food expenses by replacing Lendale I guess.

I was too. Two speedy runners (QB and RB). That's fine. But guess they don't care about passing. Maybe they want Vince to just run or hand-off most of the time.

Strange.

That's probably the best way for Vince to succeed; keep the ball on the ground.

In my mind, i think Johnson is the best back in the draft. He's the fastest on the track and on the field. He catches well and is a great 1 cut downhill runner. Unlike Henry from last yr, he has great production. He avg 16 ypc and 6 ypcarry.

The other guy was targeted by alot of 3-4 teams. Hes a big atheletic freak that can play the 5 technique. He's a former basketball player and actually was recruited in michigan as the number 1 basketball player. I hate draft grades because everyone always has something to say about what they think. In 3 yrs it will all shake out.

I think Johnson will be offensive rookie of the yr.

the Titans started this trend of ultra-stupid draft picks with Vince Young. haven't really looked back since.

You mean go towards his strengths? Yeah, that could be their plan. But Fisher stated that he would have picked a WR if there was one available.

Seems like they took the best player available. Not based on needs.

indeed, his strengths are getting the ball away from him ASAP into a runningback's hands.

They are sneaky.....I'm telling ya, they are going the triple option. It's going to set the league on fire.

We have a quadruple option to worry about in Payton Manning.

Yeah... I would have started calling them the Tennessee Longhorns if that happened. Huge Longhorn fan but as soon as Young and Griffen were drafted by the Titans they became public enemy #1.

Same here. Sure, it's nice to support ones Alma Mater. But once Vince went to Tenn. He became my enemy. Drives me crazy to hear Texans "fans" cheering for Vince when he visits our stadium. That's a sure way to get killed by the Titans.
Befriended by your enemy and then get stabbed in the back! Beware! :pirate:

I'm thought it wasn't that good, but I'm not from Florida, so I don't think too much of Derrick Harvey. Thats a lot of pressure on the kid, since they gave up a lot of picks to get him.

Quentin Groves was a good pick, and I think the others were all right, but they were 5th rounders so they really probably won't contribute this year.

I kinda thought that it smacked of desperation. It was as if Del Rio and company were trying to cobble together some kind of pass rush to rattle Peyton so they could finally sneak past them in the AFC South.

Picture Del Rio as Wil E. Coyote, if you will:

Plan to thwart the Colts option A: Acme big armed QB who looks like Gary Coleman.
Result: Failure. Del Rio plummets off cliff.

Plan to thwart the Colts option B: Acme power rushing game.
Result: Failure. Del Rio has anvil fall on his head.

Plan to thwart the Colts option C: Big physical Acme wideouts to complement power rushing game.
Result: Failure. Del Rio runs into tunnel painted on wall.

Plan to thwart the Colts option D: Huge physical run-stuffing Acme D-line to make the Colts one dimensional and vulnerable.
Result: Failure. Del Rio gets blown up by his own bomb.

I guess now we're on "Plan to thwart the Colts option E: Stud Acme bookend pass rushers."

Uh huh, Harvey and Groves added to freeny and Vanden Bousch....that's a lot of stuff on one guys plate. Brown will either be an all pro in a couple of years or they'll kill him. prety good division rotation. their draft tells me the jags are going for broke this season.

The idea with Chris Johnson may be to move him to WR. I don't know why, as I think he will be a better RB than WR.

But if that is their thinking, he has the speed for sure, and maybe the hands.

If they drafted him to play RB, then I don't see Mr. Young throwing too many passes this year.

I don't think any team can have a good draft when you give up the majority of it for a single player.

Well, the Bush administration has worked for 8 years to make sure you never have to face such a world. I think we all owe them a debt we can never repay for that.

I am really thankful I'm not a Titans fan. I would be so upset over the draft, if I was. I think they easily had one of the worst drafts this year.

They should have went for DeSean Jackson in the first. Maybe they plan on putting Chris Johnson as WR.
