I think part of there strategy was to keep them from going to Houston and them having to worry about two big weapons.

If that's true, then they worried for no reason. We wouldn't have picked either of them anyway! Our FO is stuck on picking a D guy!

Luckily it takes more than a big time WR to be a good team.

And you could be wrong in your draft eval, too.

None of us know. But what I know is that there's too much confidence going on around here right now.

No games have been played yet, but our rivals are trying to add WRs that will give them a better shot vs our defense. That should cause some level of caution for us. Not fear. Just caution.

I dont understand your logic. We should be cautious about their picks, but not have confidence about ours?

The way I see it, we took a top 5 defense and added a pass rusher. They took bottom of the barrel offenses and added a wide out.

We don't need to worry about our division. Yes, the Jags got Blackmon, and the Titans have Britt and Wright now. But we have a stout defense that can handle dynamic WRs (see Bengals games with AJ Green) and WR duos (see Falcons game with White and Jones.)

It's the teams with multiple receiving threats that we seem to struggle against like when we played New Orleans.

I'm really interested in seeing how our defense performs against teams like New England and Green Bay, when perhaps a pass rush may need to be a step faster because the quarterback has so many options to go to.
That's the QB at work. I don't think a lot of NOLA's WR's would be jack squat on a team like Jacksonville or Tennessee. Same with Pee Manning and his Colts teams...is Stokely or Garcon or whoever a superstud with any other QB tossing passes their way? Is it really the QB's options to pass to or the QB making it happen? Brady...Rodgers...Brees...they make their WR's better.

Do their QBs lack? Yes. But it takes one well-placed pass to Wright or Blackmon and they could hurt you really badly. Like "take it to the house" badly.

And let's not even talk about if that well-placed pass is against a certain CB in the back of the end zone.

I understand we're proud of our guy in the 1st round here. But let's not get drunk on our Kool Aid just yet. Use moderation.
Adding WR talent to teams with questinble play at QB (and that's being generous to the Jags) and defeciences on the O-line fails to concern me. It only fails more when the WR talnet being added are rookies. Sorry.

they started beating us (if I remember correctly) when they went five wide after jojo got hurt.

sent from way too close to Dallas....

And they were also in the wild card hunt until the last game. The Titans will not be pushovers. I still say we take the division, but the Titans will come in 2nd and probably be a royal pain in our butts like they usually are.

I never said we shouldn't have confidence about ours.

Britt was hurt the majority of 2011. With him, they are a very dangerous team. They'll have Britt and a slot guy in Wright who won't be nearly the hot garbage that some are making him out to be.

The Titans didn't finish too far behind us, Blake. All in all, I think they picked up a WR they felt they needed in order to help out their QB against a Texans defense that will try to get to the QB before he can throw it. That doesn't mean we're going to get to the Qb every time.

I'm not worried about it.

Blackmon will be Jacksonville's #1 WR which means he'll get Jjo and Wright will be Tennesse's slot or #2 guy and if they plan on going deep to him good luck with that. They'll have Merciless, Cushing, Reed, Barwin, Watt, and Smith all coming after em.
Hold up,,,,,,he SPLIT playing time with a street FA, so his opportunities to look bad were very limited. Now that he is the full time guy things will be a lot different.

You see the contract that J. Allen got from Cincy right ??? If KJ played most of the snaps then why would J. Allen of gotten as good of a deal as he did ?

Anybody who thinks the Titans won't remember they were only one game back of the Texans is fooling themselves.

We need to slow down a bit. 2012 likely won't be a runaway by the Texans. It has the chance to be, but the games haven't been played yet.

I hear ya. But with the Titans, you cant take 1+1 and get 2. We dont even know who the starting QB will be next season.

If they get Britt back, we get Schaub back. And I think this team is much more dangerous with Schaub at the helm.

You beat me to that one, as well.

The good news is that the Titans defense is shaky. That's the key for us in 2012. We have to put points on the board, run away early, and make the Titans offense string out drives all game long.

Like we built the texans to beat the colts, now teams are building to beat the texans.......

we have KJ so logic way to beat us is have 2 good WRs, ref 2010 season ! Its not like we have 2 good CBs, we have 1 good CB and another so so CB. Jojo cant cover his man and KJs man so teams are building aorund our weakness we know its a weakness so do they.

i do have to agree here, we were scoring machines before schaub went out. Infact we were in the top 3 in scoring offense before he went down. So having Schaub back will make us a lot better as well.

People seem to forget all the injuries we had last season, Sure the titans were only 1 game behind us, but we were without our starting and 2nd string QB and without AJ for most of the season. them 2 back full time and we are a different team all together
