Agreed on the Haynesworth thing. The Tacks defense looks terrible when he is on the sidelines. I guess a little pressure up front goes a long way, huh? We really wouldn't know.
He is the linchpin in the schematics of the defense. Haynesworth is not there to make sacks, pressures or hurries. He is there to penetrate and cause disruption and wreak general havoc. The idea is for him two draw maybe three defenders, whatever it takes... that frees Laboy and Vanden Bosch to make a play in the back field. It's just so crippling when he is out because an average DT will draw average coverage... it just screws everything up.

I really think Al isn't in game shape. It's just a feeling. He hasn't been the hardest worker over his career and he hasn't been on the practice field much so that is an automatic red flag. I'm still waiting for Vince Young 2.0 to emerge. I think it's a sophomore slump but I totally believe in the guy. I just don't know how much longer it will take for things to click.

Also, despite conventional wisdom I'd like to see a system change in Tennessee. Norm Chow has a fine system I guess but Vince is not his kind of player and never will be. Vince isn't going to change enough and Norm is too stubborn or reluctant, I am unsure of which... bottom line... with Norm Chow Tennessee is better off with Jay Cutler. We could have traded down in the draft and picked up something and still got Cutler.

I still prefer Young but Tennessee needs to try to go to something that is a bit like the run and shoot but with the necessary changes for the modern day game. There would need to be more blitz protection but still more spread stuff... and slightly shorter routes but not this hook and ladder crap Chow does. Contrary to popular belief Vince Young is not a moron. Often he throws a perfect throw to to the perfect spot but the receiver got it wrong and broke left when it should have been right or something.

Chows offense is an offense that relies on timing. The Titans wr's make Young look alot worse than he actually is. Young has a great future in store. I only wish that there was some way to bring Mike Heimerdinger back.

From 2000 to 2004, he was the offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans
I had to dig deep but I found this little nugget in archives.

Quote:
Titans coach Jeff Fisher didn't switch coordinators to juice up the offense. In five seasons under Mike Heimerdinger, the Titans ranked among the league's top-11 offenses in 2001, 2003 and 2004, and McNair shared the MVP award in 2003.

But Heimerdinger, who hopes to be a head coach some day, was lured away by the Jets for more money and the New York spotlight.
Licks his wounds and went back to Daddy Shanahan. I wish we would have just fired Chow and hired Dinger back on the spot at a significant pay increase.

^This is a VERY interesting read seeing that we are in the same coaching tree and all.
Quote:
He hired Mike Heimerdinger, the Broncos receivers coach and a close friend of Shanahan, to be Titans offensive coordinator in 2000. Now Heimerdinger is back in Denver, where he's assistant head coach on offense as well as quarterbacks coach.

I would trade Jeff Fisher for Gregg Williams and Mike Heimerdinger.

Seriously. Titans let Fisher go... get Bill Cowher, Gregg Williams and Mike Heimerdinger and I would be all good not having Fisher anymore. I love Fisher. I am a Fisher guy but this is one scenario that could pacify me as a fan.
