  1. Day 2 Draft Talk

    And our shot at a trade down.
  2. Day 2 Draft Talk

    Hope Lock falls and someone wants to jump Denver to draft him. Only likely options for that scenario would be New England, New Orleans or the Chargers looking at who is picking after us in the 2nd. Not sure any would want him that bad.
  3. First round talk. (No pick tipping!)

    My dude... if that's your takeaway from all that no one can help ya. Regardless, he seems honest and not just sticking to some PR script and has a lot of positive references over a 3 year period in Starkville. Hopefully the only focus now is recovery and getting as much time with Simmons and Jurrell as possible.
  4. First round talk. (No pick tipping!)

    Being an idiot (and maybe worse) is one thing and I agree Bosa got a pass when he shouldnt have. But the Simmons video is something that needed to be covered with more than a passing mention. It should make you uncomfortable, I know it did for me. I think we are getting past letting these guys become millionaires and ignoring the stuff the rest of us would be ruined by. I thought Wingo was going out of his way to make sure the conversation didn't just stop with the video, which easily could've happened. Yea would be nice to see some positives but he and the Titans are going to have to earn that. I have every expectation he and they will though, because they've both been super transparent about it which is not the norm in the NFL. I guess I'm just not under the delusion that you can separate these things and just focus on football. Look at the Chiefs and how easily this could devolve into a roster nightmare if you just say everything's fine. From here the focus will hopefully be he's making good, getting healthy and becoming the player we all hope he does. If everyone just avoided it the story would always be hovering there awkwardly. To me they've addressed it and have at least let me know they've done their work.
  5. First round talk. (No pick tipping!)

    I think if anything what they did was show how he's different than someone like Tyreek Hill. Not sure what you all want, just a casual mention of it? It's important, as one minor slip up and he's done in the league. But ultimately it seems like he screwed up and is atoning for it - and likely always will have to be doing that. I honestly almost prefer just hitting it head on and not having some backlash a week from now. It sucks but it's what happened, and I don't think it's a bad thing that they tried to handle it with a bit of nuance.
  6. First round talk. (No pick tipping!)

    Damn if Oliver makes it past Jax... Can't see JRob willing to have another 4 man draft class though.
  7. 2019 NFL Draft/College Thread

    If somehow someone like Ed Oliver slipped past #5, I wouldn't be pissed if we made a move up. He and Jurrell would be nuts.
  8. From "The Guy of the Guy"

    Hopefully just posturing, but would be a very boneheaded move.
  9. NFL Draft Event Talk

    Wait... what? That's a wildly optimistic number to expect, even if you are using some kind of loose economics that any future travel to the area is due solely to this event. I think the hubbub is more about a city bending over for a private corporation's 3 day event. Sure the trees are only 15-20 years old or whatever, but the draft is a one weekend deal. Make them conform to the location. The city would be just fine without the draft. Also the initial plan was to cut the trees down, any other plan was just CYA after the fact. If some tech company wanted to host a product reveal or a country music award show wanted to build a stage, we'd say it was ridiculous to make a permanent change for a temporary event. NFL shouldn't be any different.
  10. Yes, focus on the important things in all of this.
  11. Titans release Josh Kline

    Or Kelly takes over as a starter. Maybe Conklin bounces back but there's no doubt we were better with Kelly last year. Injuries or not if you're out there, no excuses.
  12. Titans trade for Tannehill

    Solid upgrade. Hopefully won't need him but would be a (good) surprise if we didn't here and there. Lot of solid moves so far, now just need some existing guys to step it up consistently - Mariota, Davis and Henry.
  13. Titans release Josh Kline

    Maybe he prefers tackle but he'll never be the LT on this team unless there's a major injury to 77. Also, guessing that his bank account will weigh more than his pride if he moves to guard and does well. Whether it's with us or elsewhere, he could make more at guard than right tackle potentially. The FA market for premiere guards the last few years has been hot. RT's not so much.
  14. Titans release Josh Kline

    We could be playing with 4 OTs on one line - Lewan, Saffold, Conklin and Kelly. Saffold and Conklin as guards would be a terror for opposing D's.
  15. Titans sign Cameron Wake

    Regardless of his age, he's still a guy to watch out for when he's on the field. I don't think any OT looks forward to lining up against him. Hopefully the young guys grow up a lot this year but Wake should be a good rotational guy.
