  • Out of the seniors I would rather have Bowman. Like you said, sweed is not fast and thats what our offense needs right now. I fully expect us to resign justin gage and draft a big TE which will be pretty good for the redzone, but we need speed that can get YAC and create TDs on their own.

    • Fisher has vowed to fix the offense this offseason. That's what I like to hear. His words were something like "we need more players that can account for touchdowns". Mentioned getting gamebreakers. I'm pretty anxious to see what type of players he envisions for the offense. I think Chow will have a pretty big say in things

      • Do you think Fred Davis would be a good fit? I know he may have issues with his blocking, but i think he is the fastest, most athletic TE in this draft. I just wouldnt like a John Carlson type player. Finley may be good, but him being only a rs soph, he hasnt gained my trust. I just think Davis' speed will compliment Vince Young on the roll outs.

        You are right about what you said about Sweed. I think Bowman may be the gamebreaker we're looking for. And yes, they should def. resign justin gage. He surprised many this season. 45 out of his 55 rec. were for either a first down or a touchdown (2). That is clutch right there.

          The running game is a vital part of the Titans offense so I think they would value an all-purpose TE a bit more and acquire a gamebreaking receiver early on as well.

            • I know the sound of another receiving TE from Florida isn't too appealing after Troupe, but I really like Cornelius Ingram. He came to Florida as a QB, but switched to TE. He has the wingspan of a pterodactyl, and is a playmaker at the TE position. He's a great redzone threat. Now, I don't think he's the typical TE we want. He's 6-4, 230 according to Yahoo, so he doesn't have the bulk you look for in a TE. But, he is still learning the position and has tremendous potential. I doubt his blocking is good, but it depends on if we're looking for a receiving TE to replace Troupe or a full time TE to start over Scaife. If we're looking for a receiving TE, I think Ingram could be a playmaker for us. He could be the most athletic TE in the Draft.

              Pittsburgh runs a lot of Power I formations in the redzone. 5 OL, 3 TE/2 TE & 1 WR (Hines Ward blocks so well, he can play in the Power I), 1 RB, 1 FB, and the QB. They have Heath Miller, 6-5, and Matt Spaeth, 6-7, who can either block for the backs or be big redzone targets. We're a power run team like Pittsburgh, but don't have the personnel to run that type of formation. If we could draft a huge TE, like Cottom or Bennett, that would help us. Then, TE's like Carlson, Finley, or Rucker would be good additions too who can work between the 20's and in the redzone. I would not be upset at all if we draft two TE's this year.

              In the end, we need a WR who can help us between the 20's, and some TE's who can help us finish drives and convert 3rd downs. Kelly, Rucker, and Cottom would be ideal.

                Man if we got them, and maybe one more receiver some where along the way, whether in the draft or FA, I would be pretty happy.

                • Mawae has recently stated in a radio interview that he questions Vince Young's progression, and stated that there are no players willing to step up to Young and tell him that he's wrong, which leads to many of the offensive mishaps. Young is still, well young, so he doesn't know how to handle situations. He'll audible into bad plays, make bad reads, or make some other mistake, and no one confronts him for doing so. When Steve McNair did that, he had Eddie and Wychek to correct him. Mawae says that Michael Roos is the smartest player on offense, but doesn't get on Young.

                  No link, but here's the OP on TitansOnline who I read this from:

                  On the Wake Up Zone in Nashville, Kevin Mawae appeared Monday morning with Mark Howard, Kevin Ingram and Frank Wycheck. I heard the interview replayed by George Plaster in the afternoon, whose reaction was "Simply, wow."

                  Mawae was very outspoken, as usual, but in these comments noted that muc of the Titans problems on offense centered on Young's lack of progression to develop as a thinker in the huddle and also seems to very seriously question his grasp of an NFL offense.

                  Mawae noted that Vince wants to win more than anyone on the team, but that he believed that he could do it on ability alone and that in this league, the talent gap is closed by the thinkers of the game and the intelligence of the players.

                  Mawae said that Young often called the wrong plays with the wrong formations, or when he did call the wrong play and caught it, he was confused as to what to do and didn't call timeout, resulting in a busted play. Mawae said he also questioned the fact that the Titans had so many young players in the huddle that rarely did one of them step up and correct a wrong play call (as Wycheck noted that Eddie and he used to do that to Steve when he messed up).

                  Mawae called Roos the smartest player on offense, but said Roos is going to have to learn to be more vocal and speak up when something's not right.

                  He also complimented Vince and said between the second and third year, he will drastically improve. Mawae then reiterated that Vince has to progress as a leader for this team to go to the next level. He stopped short of calling him a pouter...but there were tendencies toward it.

                  Mawae ended by saying the Titans have to "significantly improve" the weapons around Young and that the lack of weapons seriously hampered the offense, especially when injuries showed up.

                  On the Sports Zone in the afternoon, Matt Mauck disagreed with Mawae and said that other players need to shut up in the huddle and trust the quarterback to lead the team.

                  I apologize for not having direct quotes, but this was a lengthy and very eye-opening interview. This is the best I could give a synopsis.

                  Like Plaster, I came away saying "wow."

                  Mawae has always has a tendency to be outspoken, but either Kevin was baited by the coach to make these comments to get Vince's attention, or he simply should have kept it behind closed doors.

                  • I can agree with Mawae's statement. It seems like at least 2 to 3 times a game, Vince and the receivers are not on the same page. The receiver will break off routes and vince will throw deep, or vice versa.

                    • The problem I have with Mawae's comments is...Why is Mawae not doing anything? If Vince is making a mistake, then why isn't Mawae standing up to him. He's the veteran. It seems odd, though it may be true.

                        • I doubt Givens is on the roster in '08... They'll probably reach an injury settlement with him. Very unfortunate for him...

                          • Pacman Jones is in the news again. Apparently some woman in Atlanta is accusing him of hitting her at a strip club. If this is true pacman MUST go. Saw the article on ESPN.com

                            • This incident just seems shady to me. I know PacMan is stupid, but attacking another person in a strip club? I have more faith in humanity to believe he'd just do that like that. Then, a lawyer is accusing him of this. Could she just be going after easy money? I'm assuming she'd be filing another suit and sue him.

                              Meh, if it is true, which at this point I unfortunately find a lawyer more trustworthy than PacMan, then Pac's gone. At least this draft is deep at CB...
