Not a bad day for the ICOU
Wow! Antwaan Odom got a $29 million deal! Wasn't he a backup player for the Titans?
That is 3 decent players that Titans have lost, good news for us.
My thoughts also. Any loses on divisional rivals helps. Of course, the additions to the Jags may actually help. LOL
Bell was the one that really hurt. Both Laboy and Odom got ridiculous money considering their results since being drafted. Bell? I loved the line and its youth and felt it should be kept together - so this one was a stinger for me.
I heard on the radio the Titans are 44 million under the cap . They were wondering when Bud was planning on spending his money .
Bell was a big loss and I have no idea why the FO didn't try very hard to re-sign him. He's a great player and will be for a long time in this league.
Odom and LaBoy had wonderful contract years.
You mean like Fat Alebert did?
Exactly...... But in typical Tinnbread fashion, they franchised the wrong guy, they franchised Fat Albert.
Dud is a cheap whore goes after the eazy dollar versus the long term affair.
Normally I would be quick to judge them and say they are going to suck bigtime next year (and I hope they do) but after last year I was sure they had a terrible offseason and they come back and make the playoffs. Color me confused when it comes to the flaming meatballs, I have no clue how this will pan out, I just want Mario to sack his highness at least 4 times next year on our way to pulling off the sweep.
I gotta admit that Bell taking off is a bit of a surprise, I thought your FO was going to resign him for sure. Not good news for you guys, but it is for us.
who were they supposed to franchise?? i dont know if you caught last season but fat albert was probably their MVP
They could have used the transition tag and matched offers on two guys.
Exactly... They franchised a cancer like Fat Albert who played lights out. Why did he play lights out???....... Contract year!!
On another note, you may try to be less condescending. It will make your posts weigh more..
he's a cancer?? based on what? what has he done to poison his own locker room? sure gurode and schaub dont like him but how does that effect the tacks?
your post would weigh more without blatant bias and homerism
and the question still remains.. who should they have franchised instead of fat al?? the guys who played decent in their contract yrs or the guy who played lights out??
not to mention, by franchising him, that also makes this coming year a 'contract' year, if thats his only motive (which i doubt). so even by your own logic, franchising him was the right thing to do
the 'cost' of the franchise tag isnt what stopped the tacks resigning those other guys.. they have loads of cap room
I heard Sammy Knight went to NYG.
You can't use both in the same season.
I know that but transition you can place on two players versus franchise only on one player.
