    PFT is reporting that Kearse may be headed back to Tenn. If he doesnt sign a contract with them he will head to Minn on Thursday.

    Odom is gone. He had his best Success with The Titans. Question is at what price is he willing to settle for his royal cheapness?

    If he goes to Minnesota the NFC North could get very interesting.

    Kearse is better then LaBoy. If he is used mainly against the pass he will be a solid pickup and the limited time might actually get him through a season.

    Yeah, those 3 1/2 sacks really helped Philadelphia... :rolleyes:

    I can understand what you and Bullock talked about yesterday with respect to LaBoy..... but getting rid of a 26 year old that had 6 sacks v. trying to bring in a 31 year old, with health issues that only contributed 3 1/2 sacks - as a 'pass rusher'???? Good luck with all of that...

    How was our pass rush last season? :thinking:

    If Kearse is on this team next season he will get more sacks then LaBoy in AZ.

    Apparently pretty good. You had two pro-bowlers....

    I'm not so sure about that.. LaBoy will probably start more than 8 games.

    Odom has been plagued by injuries his whole career and failed to produce until last season. There were talks of cutting him in training camp and he might have been if it werent for a lack of depth.

    The Titans are going through the clearance rack for the second straight season it looks like. I guess cap space aint worth squat unless you use it.

    losing your DEs and dipping into FA to address an existing team strength (TE) just seems like flawed logic. then you start losing DBs and it just gets worse. The Titans front office has been pathetic since Reese got fired/quit. I don't hate on the Titans but its just a fact that the new GM has been struggling. Luckily for the Titans, they have Fisher as HC and I consider him the best HC in the NFL. He is worth 3-4 wins alone in how he gets his team prepared and motivated even when undermanned. Fisher is just that good.

    Have to disagree with you. You say "for the second straight season" we have gone bargain shopping, thats true, but our season improved from '06 to '07. No denying that. Reese had some terrible offseasons, mostly centered around the draft. Reinfeldt knows what he's doing.

    Yes he is not signing anyone. Not sure if he wants to piss off Albert we all know what happens when he gets pissed.

    In other words, Reinfeldt better be wearing a securely fastened helmet at all times around the facility. :whip:

    Don't know alot about the Titans but noticed you said your team improved from 06-07. I know you made the playoffs but I don't think it was because your team improved per say. I feel you won some games that should not have been won, and two of those were against us. I think your record improved and in the end that is all that matters but I don't feel anything has been done for your team to improve from 07-08. Of course the offseason is still young. But as an example most around here don't feel we really made any improvement because we got to 8-8 by beating a Jville team that wasn't playing for anything.

    Wasn't Reinfeldt named GM last February??? That means last offseason was his baby too, right??

    To be fair, the Titans D played much better--32nd in the league to 5th.

    Amazing how much two guys can help (Griffin and Harper both brought in by Reinfeldt)
