  • I hope Reggie Nelson is available in the early 2nd. He's a guy I'd love to draft, but I think he might not be there when we pick. We have a history of taking Florida players (Kinney, Troupe, Piller, Reynaldo), too. Imagine him and Hope on the back end. From everything I've read, he's supposed to declare this year because he's not much in the classroom. I don't know if this is indicative of his character or not, but if he checks out good, I'd be ecstatic if we got him, and maybe Gaines or CJ in the first.

    If he does last that long, though I'd like:

    1. Gaines/CJ - whichever is available, does it really matter?
    2. Reggie Nelson - cha-ching!
    3. Ben Grubbs - I think he's going to be great in the NFL
    4. Top CB/DL/OL available EDIT- Nvm, thought the McNair draft pick was a conditional that could become a 3rd, it's a straight 4th

    May be a little wishful thinking.

    • We are 9th in the NFL in rushing offense 8)

      Kind of funny how everything changed when Piller went out, we put Bell at LG, and started Stewart at RT, the exact same changes that every Titan fan had been calling for for months. The OL has been very good lately. We've also only given up 16 sacks, and a couple of those aren't on the OL. Vince has held the ball too long on a couple of occasions, and has scrambled into a couple of sacks as well (Washington game).

      Roos has been great this year, but I think alot can be attributed to Mawae making all the line calls. Stewart can be beat on the edge, but if he gets his hands on you, it's over. Hell, even Benji has played ok this year. I think we need a couple of guys to develop behind Benji and Mawae though.

        • What is Haynesworth's status with the Titans? 6 weeks ago it sounded like Jeff Fisher was so P.O'd at him that he was ready to cut him the second he got back from suspension. Now it sounds like Fisher as well as the rest of the team are almost welcoming him back with open arms. What is his status with the Titans? Are they gonna cut him soon? Are they gonna see how he does the rest of the year? They planning on keeping him longterm?

            Albert has done and said all the right things since his suspension. He's accepted full responsibility for his actions, and quietly accepted the league's decision when it was handed down. He's also acknowledged that he has some anger management issues, and has agreed to counseling.

            The Haynesworth incident was an inexcusable and abhorrent cheap shot, but to Albert's credit, his handling of the whole situation has been nothing short of exemplary. However, he still has to prove himself on the field. I originally expected that he would be trade bait after the season, and this is still a strong possibility...but I now think that, assuming he demonstrates a newfound sense of maturity and levelheadedness, the Titans may very well give him a contract extension. He's definitely a dominating presence on the interior, and would be hard to replace. If he's truly turned over a new leaf, he'll be a big part of the team's turnaround.

            • According to Fisher, Reynaldo is going to start this week and we're moving Finnegan back to the nickel.

                  I think he said IF his ankle was ok to go....he could be sincere, or he could be making sure he has an excuse so it isn't a flat out benching.

                  In any case, it doesn't *really* matter. Finegan + Fuller > Hill + Finegan when it comes to the 2nd CB and nickel CB combo, but as a NB, Finegan is still on the field a fair bit anyway.

                  Speaking of Finegan, what ever happened to his blitzing? He got 2 sacks (1 official) to start the season in like the 1st 3 games and I don't think he has really blitzed since has he?

                  • I've noticed that as well (btw they actually finally credited him with his sack on Culpepper, so he officially has 2). It seems to me, at least in the past few weeks, that when we bring our blitz, we are usually bringing one of our LBers up the middle, and they are being picked up successfully by the OL. I'd like to see us use a few more exotic blitzes, maybe some delayed blitzes, or even how we were using Finnegan to blitz out of the nickel db spot. At least then the blitz is coming from the outside and not right in the OL's field of vision.

                    Finnegan is blazing fast, so he's a very effective blitzer. I wish we'd use him more. Especially if the slot is lined up to the QB's blind spot, we could maybe get a few FF's out of it.

                    Anyway, on to the Giants game next week. I hope we have LaBoy back. Tony Brown has been good at DE, but I'd rather start LaBoy this week at RDE because the Giants are being forced to start Bob Whitfield at LT. I really think LaBoy will be able to get an edge rush on him successfully, and at the very least make them give help to that side. If he's not back, I'd like to see us use KVB alot on the right side, and let Tony Brown stuff the run on the left side.

                      • Ben Troupe out for season

                        Titans place tight end on injured reserve with broken ankleAssociated Press

                        National Football League News Wire

                        NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans placed tight end
                        Ben Troupe on injured reserve Wednesday with a broken right ankle,
                        leaving the team without two of its top tight ends.

                        The Titans placed veteran Erron Kinney on injured reserve on
                        Oct. 13 after he needed further knee surgery. Troupe broke his
                        right ankle on a touchdown catch in Sunday's 31-13 victory at
                        Philadelphia and continued playing until swelling forced him to the
                        bench.

                        Tennessee had sought a second opinion before confirming the
                        injury Tuesday. Team officials replaced Troupe on the roster by
                        promoting defensive end Sean Conover from the practice squad.

                        Troupe's spot in the offense likely will be filled by Ben
                        Hartsock, claimed off waivers from Indianapolis on Oct. 25.
                        Hartsock practiced with the team for the first time a week ago.

                        "He's been here," coach Jeff Fisher said. "Despite the fact
                        that he hasn't been on the practice field, he has been in the
                        meetings and has been paying attention, so he's very comfortable
                        with the system and what we're doing."

                        Troupe caught a career-high 55 passes last season, but had only
                        13 this season. Hartsock has a total of six receptions in three
                        seasons, all with the Colts in 2004 and 2005.

                        • Not like he was pulling his weight anyway. It's a loss, and hurts even more with Kinney out, but Scaife was outperforming Troupe anyway.

                          • Apparently LaBoy is out this week too because he was sent to get a second opinion on his concussion. ****.

                            Hopefully we move KVB around then so he can get a little action on the right side vs. Bob Whitfield. Guess Tony Brown will start at DE again. Wish we had a legit pass rusher here, we need to get pressure on Eli to try and force him into mistakes.

                            I have a feeling Tiki is gonna carve us up, but we still have an outside shot at a win if we keep getting big plays out of the defense and special teams.

                              tbh i dont see tiki carving us up, our line now is pure run stuff, brown, smith, fatty, KVB, hash run stuff, tbh id be more worried about brandon jacobs

                              • We haven't been able to stop the run all year. What makes you think we're gonna be able to stop the 2nd or 3rd best RB in the NFL?

                                I say he's a lock to go 100+ as long as they don't abandon him like they did last week.
