Default Worst to first: Ranking the NFL off-seasons..

From Fox Sports comes an article ranking all 32 teams offseasons, and who improved the most. In last place is the Titans, which I agree with. Terrible offseason.

The Texans are ranked 20th. I would put us around 10th, but I won't quibble I guess, as he at least mentions we are improved. Of course, he mentions the Oline (like that isn't getting old aready) and also gives us a backhanded compliment (how could they not be better). It seems we will forever be that 2 win team until we shover it down the media's throats, but oh well.

Interestingly, he has the Raiders at #3, and loves their pickup of two olineman no better than Jordon Black, and there line was worse than ours to start with. All in all, not terrible, but again, someone who doesn't really know or understand what is going on down here.....but he will know soon enough, and will be eating crow like the rest of them.

I have a hard time putting credence in an article that misspells Dunta's name:

couldn't agree more....

going into the offseason Titans had like the 2nd most cap space (behind the very active 49ers), a plethora of draft picks, and the assumed momentum from VY's rookie season.

well Reinfeldt took all that and blew it. They did next to nothing in Free Agency although they had loads of cap space. They resorted to signing DBs from the Colts for crying out loud. Then the Pac-Man fiasco. Then the failure to bring any big name Free Agents. Then they have a draft that has garnered mixed reviews at best while giving VY very little new to work with on the offensive side of the ball

Then they lose Travis Henry and their 2 top WRs (of which they were already woefully lacking). Then you have Lendale White auditioning for the role of Fat Albert. What a horrible offseason.

Oh and lets not forget that they have the 2nd lowest payroll in the NFL. I thought Bud said he was gonna spare no expense to bring a winner to the Smoky Mountains. Well obviously he lied......not surprising.

Not just a little afraid if Young gets a vet WR who run blocks well and has great hands? He is not the answer but he improves the run and pass game.

Yep and if he goes to the hair piece hall of fame, it means no one else wanted him.

An interesting theory .....

I love the over exaggeration of our losses from last season. The only person that we lost of any true value was Henry. He had already been suspended for drug violations. He has only had one solid year as a Titan. Considering how many up and down season the guy has had he was defiantly not consistent enough to be a long term answer. Is White? I don't know but he was drafted last season to be that answer so now is his time to prove it. Allot of Henry's success came because of Young’s ability to scramble. With out that the LBs would cheat against the run and Henry would have struggled to get 1000 yards last season IMO.

Sighting the loss of a Pacman as a down turn of the future of our team is ridiculous. He is out one season and may even get that sentence reduced on appeal. Harper was brought in as a #2 CB. Harper as a #2 CB is an upgrade. He would be an upgrade over DeMarcus Faggins.

Fowler at MLB is an improvement over Sirmon

Scott or Griffen will be improvements over Thompson.

If we end up with Keyshawn he is an improvement over Bennett IMO, Jones is our #2 WR so if we kept Wade he would still be sitting at the #3 spot. Gage should be about the same level as Wade.

We went after allot of players in the off season non of them wanted to sign or wanted more money they we were willing to offer. Look at the contracts that were offered to mediocre talent. Clements and Grant were the only players in this off season I was even interested in. Both took huge salaries which I do not think they deserved. In the end I am glad we passed on the second rate talent that was in this seasons FA.

And FA is still not over.

Really the only question is will White be a feature back or just a fat back.

Even if the Titans did get Keyshawn, I wouldn't raise their grade one iota because they're only in the running for him because of pure luck. Nobody really expected Keyshawn to be cut like he did. The fact remains is that the Titans stood pat and anything they get from this point on would be based on luck rather than FO actually doing their jobs and actively pursuing actual FAs, not cut FAs. Especially after the NFL draft.

I'm no GM but that's my thinking on the matter.

huh?



So we are lucky because we did not furiously waist money at the beginning of FA? I'll let you in on a little secret .... ever season there are cuts after the draft ..... ever season teams pickup big name players post draft. And your reasoning for us not improving is because we are "lucky"? Lucky or not if we get better players on our team we are improved.

BTW - last season we did the exact same thing and got Mawea and Thornton.

Glad we are lucky every season

If keyshawn sign, which is a big if, who is going to throw him the ball?

He sure sounds like a team orinted guy :

just funny, i love it.

Put down the crack pipe. They had a terrible offseason. And, none of your interesting spin will change that. And if you think Keyshawn is the savior you need a therapist.

The Titans have one player. The Texans passed the Titans this offseason, there is no question about it. So, get used to the cellar, because that's where you are going.

So Flamer how is a midthirties WR who hasn't had 1000 yards receiving since 2002 a good pick up when you have said repeatedly that our pick up of RB that just turned 30 and has broke 1000 yards rushing repeatedly since 2002 is a bad pick up. Just wondering.

Of course I think that Meshon would fit right in with the Ravens, I mean Raiders, uh Bengals or whatever the name of that team of misfits in Nashville is.

overexaggerating the Titan's losses? that would be impossible to do.

No quality RBs. No quality WRs. Yet you had plenty of money to spend. NEGATIVE.

Downplaying the signifigance of the PacMan suspension is just ludicrous. NEGATIVE.

Before PacMan's suspension, you already lacked a quality #2 DB. Now you need a #1 AND a #2. Harper is barely a #2 much less a #1. NEGATIVE.

Keyshawn is not a Titan. Your WR situation is embarassing. NEGATIVE.

You went after a lot of players and signed none of any real consequence. Thanks for making my point. NEGATIVE.

Drafting Griffin as a CB is the coup de grace for Reinfeldt especially how early they drafted him. Just a retarded move. NEGATIVE.

Yes, the Free Agent contracts were overpriced but you know what, they are only going to be worse next year. Only the Bills have a lower payroll than you. That isn't exactly a badge of honor. What use is cap space if you don't even use it. This proves Bud Adams is a cheapskate and cares little to nothing about winning and competing for championships. Poor VY. NEGATIVE.

The Free Agency period isn't over? Anyone of worth is already signed and your only hope is to pick through the June salary cap casualties. BTW all those guys will want to get paid too and will want to go to teams taht are actuall8y competing for playoffs (of which the Titans will not be) NEGATIVE.

Bottom line is that Titans fan was talking all about how they were young and had so much money to spend and they were gonna improve. Well they didn't improve and to the contrary, regressed to the bottom of the league, talent-wise. I predict a 5-11 season for the Titans.

Enjoy VY for the next couple years because that guy is gonna be gone soon and probably a lot faster than you think.

Oh....KEEP ON TROLLIN

I hope I ain't 'waisting' my breath but Mawea and Thornton were Reese moves. Reinfeldt has not shown the ability to even overpay for guys much less make deft and intelligent moves like Reese

Yeah we have to go there once a season. Though I believe the deed was passed to Young last season in OT. Also it stinks of cattle please clean it for the next time we play.
