Crumpler is good, but I think he's on his decline, and I think that Johnson isn't going to run in between the tackles. He just has "electric 2 yard gain" written all over him.

Vince certainly isn't getting the help his counterparts from the '06 draft are getting. And that's sad.
I think your probably right as this WR class was one of the worst in a long time. However, Sweed is one guy that VY has had experience throwing the ball to and seems to be a pretty fair reciever. IMO, they just decided to change the offenseive scheme to fit what talent VY has and that isn't hitting a reciever very far down field with any accuracy. So, the short passing game with lots of running and controlling the game. Couple that with a very good defense and that can be successfull.

I agree. I think once they brought in the new/old OC and he watched film on Young and they decided that his best play is the handoff.

Well, I'm not my peeps. The blame for those drops goes both ways, most will realize that, but you saw some of those passes and you know they weren't all his fault. Like BA said Vince gained Crumpler and Johnson, two play makers. IMO, we didn't need another #2 receiver and thats what they all were going into the draft.

Spec, I truly believe Fisher and Co. were eyeing Sweed in the second before Pittsburgh snagged him in front of us. After him there was no one worth spending even a 2nd on so we addressed other needs. I'm fine with it. Sweed was the only one I wanted early and I didn't think he was worth a 1... obviously no one else did either.

I think when the run on WR's went off in the 2nd the Titans should've traded up to get Sweed. Not trade up much, but enough to get him. I noticed not too many Titans fans talk about the 2nd round pick that was taken. I thought that was a huge surprise. (Yes I realize Duane Brown is considered by and far a larger reach than Jason Jones)

But yeah, I thought Early Doucet could've been a decent pick in the 2nd. But that doesn't mean that Bud and his band of merry men thought that same thing.

I try not to complain too much about reaches, I figure if they have a guy they like and don't want to risk losing him then they might as well take him (on the other hand, Jax trading up to 8 and grabbing Harvey was pretty dumb). Every pick in the draft filled a how except for the Tight End from Cal, and they said he was too good to pass up. My guess is they have a lot of confidence in Paul Williams, our 3rd (?) round pick out of Fresno last year.

That's my guess. I didn't think it's too encouraging that Williams did not play (or did he play some) last season. We have players that we drafted in the 4th and 5th rounds that didn't play last year, but we aren't expecting them to make an impact this year.

Every year I hear talk about how Tennessee is on the decline and they ****ed their draft up. Well, I'm hearing it again this year, and I refuse to believe the Titans are on the decline as long as Fat al is there.

Not anytime soon, IMO. Bud finally got smart after he fired Bum. Coach Fisher was just resigned. Now the longest running tenure of all NFL coaches.

And with their last draft, the Titans will be even more of a good running team, smart defense.

I can understand the guy feeling the way he does, when the Tacks could use more and better WRs. His use of the english language was terrible I admit, but his point is made. Come on people, there are a lot of you who could not fathom the thinking in Casserly & Capers in some of their dealings either. So it has not been that long ago for us either.
Fisher understands what he has to work with though, and he is trying to do what he can to empasize what his strengths are ( excellent defense, and a good running game), so he chose to go RB Chris Johnson in the Draft. I really don't blame him until VY learns to read defenses better, that is the best trump card Fisher has.
