    I'm watching the Titans game right now on game rewind. Just a few opinions...

    Jake Locker has some serious accuracy issues. Hits big plays then just leaves you scratching your head the next few downs. Dunno if the tits see him as the future or JAG, but I think he's hit his ceiling. Blitzing every other down will probably be more effective than it was against the bolts. Which brings me to...

    Chance Warmack: I really liked him coming out of the draft, he seems to be a mixed bag as of right now. Stretch or guard pulling plays leave a lot to be desired, seems to be a lack of communication with his RT because he is quite often looking around in the second level to block someone and disengages too soon. Didn't key in on him every play but watched on most rewinding a few times.

    Pass protection seems good enough but we'll have to see what the likes of JJ Watt does to him. I'm thinking he gets the short end of that stick.

    Chris Johnson seems to be a bit more patient this year. Still odd vision, but appears to be trusting his o-line more.

    Jurrell Casey had a pretty solid game, might make pounding the rock a bit hard.

    Their LB core is very quick but I think dropping Zach Brown into coverage against OD is going to be a mismatch to be exploited. If we can get them to bite on the play action there will be a ton of big chunks there, using their speed to our advantage. If not, might be a tough day of running.

    Nope, and I did NOT support this hire. I wanted him gone from the NFL for life. I don't for a minute condone this, and am not shocked Bud Adams went for him. Comfort factor plus the ring, two things the old coot wants.

    They STILL have no answer for AJ. With Williams love of the blitz it's gonna expose their back end big time. I think Arian has a big game. Blitzing fast OLBs will be so far up the field Foster will have big holes.

    On D Bulls are looking to redeem them selfs.
    Let me see reigning DPOTY all pro JJ Watt vs a rookies 2nd pro game? Yeah I'll take Watt. They obviously will try to expose McCain (duh). With Smith back It will add more up front pressure witch will lead to at least 1 pick. Mays looked really good on the run, and we know tittans will try and establish the run.

    The Titans have a pretty good stable of RBs, I hope we get out to a good lead to render them irrelevant .

    Sure is a lot of trash talk from the flaming buttons:


    @taniaganguli : Foster was asked about
    the difference between the #Texans and
    #Titans defense "Ours is better.""

    Unfortunately? I'll gladly take this one hit wonder over the SB halftime performer.

    It was doing the same for me, had to change the setting from centered to stretch and it fixed it for me.

    :lol:

    I'm hoping that post was a joke. The song "Rock Bottom" from the Slim Shady LP is 1000 times better than anything "Robbie Vanwinkle" has ever done or will ever do. Eminem (aka Marshall Mathers) actually grew up in the hood, CAN rap, and his albums were produced by rap pioneer Dr. Dre. Vanilla Ice (Robbie Van Winkle) is some Rich kid from Dallas who decided he wanted to rap so he got a bunch of brothas to stand behind him while he did so. You're not comparing apples and oranges my friend you're comparing a 65 GTO to a Ford Festiva with a bad transmission.
