    Not sure if this belongs here. Anyone catch the Titans report on 610 this morning? According to (I think he was Titans radio?) their young wide receivers are all studs, and the loss of Bennet has been overcome. LenDale will excel if he hangs tough, and Chris Henry and Brown will be a strong tandem if not.

    And I thought WE had homers.

    Every team has homers. At this point in the season, unless you really hate your front office, you're sure you're going to make some noise. I mean, most of us are pretty positive about next year and our team has never even had a winning season. The Titans fans can look back a few years ago, and they were dominating the division. They've got to think they're just a few tweaks away from the SB again. The Jags fans can look back and 2 years ago, they were 12-4 and last year, if we hadn't swept them, they would have been back in the playoffs. They're not going to think they're cellar dwellers next year.

    I would cry if my team was headed toward a playoff season and lost the best CB, RB, and WR in one offseason :-(

    AND that CB that you lost was your best kick returner who had won a few games for you.

    Yeah, that would not be good.

    But, on the other hand, you've got the OROY.

    No wonder Titans fans are schizoid.

    I dunno, but does that mean they're optimistic about LenDale getting his weight under 300 pounds ?

    Best I can figure, the average titan fan is such a homer as they are such a smallish town with not many other sports distractions or history.

    Put it this way...they are more likely to offer differing opinions on such things as ossum hunting and dating family members.

    In addition, they finished the season 7-1, IIRC. Look how pumped Texan fans are after winning two in a row to close out an otherwise poor year. Picture this board if the Texans had gone on that kind of tear to end the season.


    Hmmm.....I'm not sure I consider the average Texans fan all that cosmopolitan either (I'm now ducking for cover).

    Actually, 6-1 or if you want to look back two more games 6-3. Definitely a stronger run than our 2-0 or 3-2 finish though.

    True, but on the other hand there would certainly be folks here lamenting the prospects for replacing the top two WR's, top RB, top CB, pro-bowl KR/PR all at one time while having made basically zero moves while sitting on top of a pile of cap room. There is a reason the Titans have received miserable off-season grades for the most part.

    I went to Titans games for 3 years up in Memphis, to Vandy then over to the stadium formerly known as Aldelphia....some of the most intelligent football fans I've been around. They have been around SEC football for a while...they have sharp, intelligent crowds. At least these guys know to shut up when they have the ball. Our fans still have issues with this.

    So the people we're making fun of are no different than us. That's about right. :)

    For the mixologist touch, garnish with a Jolly Rancher. The apple Jolly Ranchers are great for Sour Apple Martinis* too.

    *I hate to misuse the word "martini" when I should say "cocktail", but I have to go with the common names here. I personally haven't come to terms with vodka martinis, much less these sweet drinks. Gin, vermouth, olives. That is all.
