  1. That pic and story is literally the only thing you need anytime this topic comes up.
  2. Some big names left Nashville this offseason, but their on-field production wasn’t close to their reputation at this point in their careers. Eric Decker and DeMarco Murray managed grades of 72.5 and 71.2 this past season respectively. A fully healthy Corey Davis and the addition of Dion Lewis (89.4 overall grade) should help mitigate such losses. The big addition for the Titans here is cornerback Butler, who despite getting benched in the Super Bowl, is still an incredibly talented player. His 81.0 overall grade this past season was actually his lowest as a starter in his career. The Titans nickel corner was an issue a season ago, and we’ve seen in our data how much of an impact that can have on a defense. Now the Titans go three deep and added two serious pass-rush threats in Rashaan Evans and Harold Landry to aid the pass defense. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-most-improved-nfl-team-in-each-division
  3. This would be awesome. I'd definitely try to be there if it happens.

    Wait...so not only is the roster that bad, he also doesn't have any draft picks?!

    New curtains will NOT be one of the stretch goals, I can assure you.
  6. Two Tone Crew Podcast Update

    In all seriousness, this is starting to feel like a goodbye, which I didn't intend, lol. That being said, now would seem an appropriate time to say it has been an honor (LANDRY!) and privilege to do this podcast for so long. In some ways, we accomplished more than I could have ever imagined (interviewing PK/Wyatt/McClain, doing a live draft show, making more than 150 shows, etc.). In other ways, I feel like the podcast has been getting stagnant. I think we've all felt it, but we're all adults with lives and where it's just a hobby for us, we haven't really had the energy/time to take things to that next step. @OILERMAN Thanks to you for stepping up and being that reliable 3rd voice we needed when Josh had to take a step back. @TitansGuru I’m honored you agreed to let this happen in the first place. Thank you for providing the platform to get this thing going and for your support of the show over the years. I also appreciate your words of encouragement, motivation, and new ideas you brought to the show. @Jamalisms The show wouldn’t have survived without you. Plain and simple. There were several weeks when you and I were the only ones on the show, but we managed to keep the conversation flowing and to keep the podcast going. You were a great co-host and I feel like we really nailed down our chemistry as the years went on. We could bounce topics back and forth pretty effortlessly once we got to know each other. I would love to be on as a guest or even as a lead host from time to time. I just don't feel that I'm the best person to be "leading the charge" anymore. The way things have been, if I couldn't be free for a podcast on a given week, then it probably wouldn't happen. This isn't putting any fault on the other guys...I asked for the responsibility and welcomed it. I just can't shoulder those leadership responsibilities anymore. I think this podcast can be huge. Guru, Jamal, and myself had a pretty grand vision for it and we've made significant steps toward that. But I think it can be even better if we could find someone with the energy, passion, and knowledge for such a project.
  7. I know some of you have been wondering when the next show is going to hit considering there hasn't been a show for FA or the draft. Unfortunately, we aren't sure when (or if) it will happen. We are currently evaluating the direction we'd like to take the podcast. The show is over 6 years old now and we've recorded more than 150 episodes. My life has changed quite dramatically since we first started this thing. I simply don't have the time I once did to devote to planning, recording, editing, and promoting the show. When we first started, my vision was to have a rotating panel of hosts from TR. Not a huge amount, but I think a rotating group of 6-8 people would have been ideal. This board exists because of the strong personalities and dedicated fans we have here. I was hoping to bring a little of that to the podcast. Unfortunately, that proved way more difficult than I ever expected. @TitansGuru, @Jamalisms, and myself were there from the beginning and it was mainly us for quite some time. Guru's job eventually got to the point where he had to take a step back. So the past few years, @OILERMAN has stepped-in to fill that 3rd chair. Aside from that group, we really haven't been able to find any other consistent hosts to rotate in/out. Some of you have been on the show a few times, but it has been hard to find anyone willing to commit long-term. There are several posters here who've turned down multiple opportunities over the years...and I say that not to call anyone out, but just to illustrate how hard it can be to get someone for even one episode. We've already scaled things back pretty dramatically from what we used to do. We don't really seek out and push for interviews anymore, only do a handful of shows during the offseason, and then one episode per week during the season. I know it doesn't seem like much on the outside, but there's a lot more work that goes on behind the scenes to publish even one episode. Part of me regrets this because I feel like this community podcast has the ability to be the best Titans podcast out there. I just personally can't go all out like that anymore due to my "real-world" responsibilities. I know this may not be what you all wanted to hear, but I at least wanted to let everyone know what is going on so you aren't left wondering when the next show will be. If you have any experience hosting a podcast/youtube show/audio editing/etc. or if it's something you'd like to consider, shoot me a PM and we can talk. In a perfect world, I would love to be able to take a step back from the show and see someone take over with the passion and time to take this show to new heights. Any new host would have to be approved by Guru, of course (since he owns the site). In the meantime, Jamal, Scotty, and I will keep talking about other ideas about how to keep things going.
  8. Landry's first step and dip are absolutely insane.
  9. Love that attention to detail, @tgo! Getting Maxey's spelling correct when even Wyatt in his tweet had it wrong.
  10. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    If we go defense, then that would be an entire draft without any players on offense.

    What in the world is happening with John Kelly?
  12. I'm seeing conflicting reports on this. It sounded like Cruikshank told reporters he hadn't played safety, but I think the tweet may have been poorly worded. Zierlein's write-up says "He moved to the "spur" safety spot as a senior, starting all 13 games, posting 75 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and 1.5 sacks." https://www.nfl.com/prospects/dane-cruikshank?id=32462018-0002-5599-7168-7460d8811278
