Default Titans get flamed!

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.

On the other side of the AFC South I thought that the jags did a very, very good job with their draft....

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.
