  1. Vita Vea

    I could see us making a move if he doesn’t go top 10.
  2. Nintendo's upcoming NX will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers, a number of sources have confirmed to Eurogamer. On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal - but here's the twist: we've heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-07-26-nx-is-a-portable-console-with-detachable-controllers
  3. First Pick Draft Game 2018

    It's that time again, boys! The grading system is still bizarre, but I really do enjoy it as a way of familiarizing myself with the prospects and to start getting at least a rough estimate of where they're expected to go. I was pretty pleased with this one (how does this get a B grade?! Like I said...grading system is weird). Your score is: 18927 (GRADE: B) Your Picks: Round 1 Pick 25: Roquan Smith, ILB/OLB, Georgia (A) Round 2 Pick 25: Will Hernandez, OG, Texas-El Paso (A) Round 3 Pick 25: Kevin Toliver II, CB, LSU (A+) Round 4 Pick 25: Nyheim Hines, RB, North Carolina State (A+) Round 5 Pick 25: Terrell Edmunds, SS, Virginia Tech (A) Round 6 Pick 25: Rashaan Gaulden, CB, Tennessee (A+) Round 7 Pick 25: Justin Yoon, K, Notre Dame (A+) Link to First Pick draft game.
  4. Dan Orlovsky draws McFleur plays

    Depends on the year. Was better in shotgun for 2016. Better under center for 2017.
  5. Getting a little dusty in my office this morning... http://www.titansonline.com/video/videos/Tim-Shaw-A-Titan-for-Life/618a57f8-b8b0-416b-a2f1-6ece859ba5a4 Shaw, diagnosed with ALS in 2014, signed a contract with the Titans in an emotional team meeting. He’ll remain on the roster for a day before going on the team’s Reserve/Retired list. The move came as a surprise to the players, who sprung from their seats when Shaw entered the room from a side door. “He’s going to be a Titan for life,’’ Titans coach Mike Mularkey said to cheers.
  6. Mike Keith has already confirmed the logo isn't changing.

  10. Believe he stayed in school for another year to try and be a 1st round pick.
  11. Brugler's First Big Board

    –1. Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame (6-4, 325, 5.23, 56) –2. Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB/S, Alabama (6-0, 201, 4.52, 29) –3. Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State (6-3, 275, 4.84, 9) –4.

  12. Titans Needs Prioritized - Offense

    I'm pretty sure I saw @Justafan say he isn't impressed with Succop and would move on. I'd love to see Sony Michel as a Titan, but I think Alvin Kamara's huge season is going to help him get drafted a lot earlier than he probably should be. Not sure he's as talented as Kamara. Want to watch a lot of film on him in the coming weeks.
  13. Titans Needs Prioritized - Offense

    You're leaving out maybe the most important factor in contract negotiations: the agent. Marcus' contract will be heavily influenced by what his agent tells him to take. Now that being said, I can definitely see him being like Brady in that he'll help structure the deal (and restructure, when necessary) to help the team sign other guys.
  14. NFLs Neediest Teams - Andy Benoit

    And it's still not our #1 need, imo.
  15. NFLs Neediest Teams - Andy Benoit

    Complete insanity to say WR is our top need.
  16. First Pick Draft Game 2018

    Probably my favorite one I've done so far... Your Picks: Round 1 Pick 25: Vita Vea, DT, Washington (B+) Round 2 Pick 25: Sony Michel, RB, Georgia (A) Round 3 Pick 25: Josey Jewell, ILB, Iowa (A+) Round 4 Pick 25: Jeff Holland, OLB, Auburn (A+) Round 5 Pick 25: Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech (A+) Round 6 Pick 25: Joel Iyiegbuniwe, ILB, Western Kentucky (A+) Round 7 Pick 25: Justin Yoon, K, Notre Dame (A+)
  17. Brugler's First Big Board

    Todd McShay mocked a TE to us in his most recent mock (Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State). I don't personally see it happening, but there are so many directions we could go this year. Picking so late also makes it even harder to predict.
  18. Team needs before free agency and the draft

    Here's an article discussing the similarities between Ngata and Vita Vea. Still time to see where these players start to shake out, but if Vea isn't a top 10 guy, then he's a potential trade-up candidate for us, imo. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/draft-is-vita-vea-the-next-haloti-ngata
  19. Team needs before free agency and the draft

    In his Q&A on Titansonline, he talked about how a really good NT can help hide a lot of flaws. Not sure who they'll go after, but I definitely expect them to try and upgrade the position.
  20. It's a big part, but I think you're underselling the coaching aspect of it all. Coaching matters.
  21. My gut reaction as a Titans fan would be pretty happy if they go with Campbell or Frazier, less so if they go with Reich.
  22. More Mariota numbers 2017

    That guy has a huge twitter thread in which he heaps praise on Mariota and rails against the idea that he isn't a pocket QB. Starts here (if you can't tell, the first tweet is sarcasm from him):
