  1. Jim Wyatt released his OL Training Camp Preview today, was really glowing in his praise for Kelly. One of the big things to watch when the players report next week is who starts camp on PUP, we know Simmons will, question is what happens with Conklin/Walker/Smith. If Conklin starts on PUP he is in real danger of losing that starting RT spot to Kelly, Wyatt also discussed this possibility in his OL preview.
  2. Wyatt isn't leaking any information, he made a comment based on his own observations that he is confident Delanie will be right to go in week 1 but didn't share that same confidence regarding Smith as he simply hasn't seen him progressing out on the practice field. It isn't as if he has released some tightly held Titans secret.
  3. Where has he shared confidential information, all he did was make a comment on Smith based on his personal observations.
  4. Never said he did, just said this renewed speculation regarding Smith was made on an observation by Jim Wyatt not some fantasy football website.
  5. No this is based on what Jim Wyatt said this week, while he wouldn't share exact details of what is going on, he does see which players are in the building rehabbing injuries and what stage of the recovery they are at.
  6. Deion Jones is a pretty good cover ILB, but personally I think the Falcons might of overpaid a bit with his new contract announced today, $14.25 million a season is a big whack for a guy who has had stress fractures in his foot and missed most of last season. Statistically wise Jayon Brown was trending towards Deion Jones level production with the way he was playing in late 2018, and with a couple of years left of his rookie contract looks to be an absolute steal for us for the next couple of years.
  7. I think Pruitt is a replacement level TE, competent blocker and very average receiver, Firkser is an ordinary blocker and a pretty handy receiving TE. If the worst case scenario happened and Walker/Smith were both out again, Pruitt would be TE1 purely because he is a better blocker, last year Firkser was used almost exclusively on pass plays, there was a stat floating around that a pass was called on more than 80% of plays Firkser was on the field, that is a massive tell for any offense. Personally I think Delanie will be fine by week 1 and thankfully he will resume his role at TE1.
  8. Really is a mystery what is going on with Smith, there is absolutely no way even a high grade MCL tear should be taking this long to heal, he has either had a setback in his recovery or the full extent of his injury was never correctly reported. Was a little surprised to see this quote from Jim Wyatt this week as Smith was seen working out on a side field during the last couple of open to the media OTA practices before not being sighted during mandatory mini camp. I was hoping Smith/Conklin would be healthy for the start of training camp but it seems that is highly unlikely now. Going to be a heavy dose of MyCole Pruitt as TE1 early in training camp and preseason games.
  9. Its certainly possible that he would prefer playing at home in Nashville but there is no way he would be giving the team some kind of meaningful discount. Not really much point worrying if he will be playing here anyway, with the 5th year option in 2020 and a couple of franchise tags after that, the earliest possible time we would have a shot bringing him here is after the 2022 season.
  10. Way too early to tell if Edge will be a priority in the 2020 Draft, Alton Robinson is an OLB I will be keeping an eye on this CFB season.
  11. Pretty good statistical comparison to the Titans 2017 and 2018 seasons here.
  12. Nothing earth shattering here, Vrabel praising Mariota for his dedication this offseason while also seeming very comfortable with Mariota's contract status. RK: Marcus Mariota, along with Jameis Winston, is the first quarterback since the new CBA to play on a fifth-year option. What does he have to show you to earn an extension? (Mariota is 27-28 as a starter, with an 89.4 passer rating and a 69:42 TD:INT ratio.) MIKE VRABEL: “I think everybody has a contract, and we’re very aware of players who are in the last year of the deal. Marcus is obviously one of those. When you make a commitment to the QB you want to make sure that this is going to be your guy for the next 7-10 years when you look at the percentage of the cap quarterbacks are driving. Nobody is more proud of what Marcus has done in the offseason than me. He’s come back stronger, bigger, with greater understanding of what we're doing offensively, being able to communicate it to players the field. I don’t look at the lack of a long-term extension as a negative, though that’s what people try to make it. I know Marcus’s demeanor and that won’t change whether he’s on a 10-year contract or its up after the season. He’s that type of person. So I know it'll work because of how he is.” https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/07/15/nfl-head-coach-diversity-brian-levy-harold-goodwin-frank-reich-matt-nagy-kyler-murray
  13. Today is the deadline for franchise tagged players to be able to sign a long term deal, all reports seem to indicate Clowney and the Texans aren't even discussing a long term deal at this point in time. Clowney's next move will be interesting to watch, will he hold out or even possibly try and force a trade.
  14. 5-11 certainly isn't an unreasonable prediction as we sit 8 weeks out from the kickoff of the 2019 season, especially for a team that hasn't proven it can be consistent, for every win we have "stolen" from seemingly superior teams we have then turned around and dropped games to some dumpster fire level opponents.
  15. Mike Herndon sums up well exactly what we are up against this year to make the playoffs, he doesn't even include Mayfield/Newton in that QB list. The SOS will obviously fluctuate as the season progresses and injuries occur and teams rise and fall, but based on the 2018 final rankings we start 2019 with the 9th hardest SOS. Not saying this team can't make the playoffs but we face a significantly tougher task schedule wise than the last 3 yrs.
  16. Can't argue on paper this looks like the hardest schedule we have had in quite a while, just look at the QB's we are going up against this year, averaging 19pts a game offensively won't get us 8+ wins this year even with how good the defense should be. 10 games this year come against teams that had scoring offenses in the top half of the NFL last year. Like I said above I would hope this isn't a 5-11 team but it isn't unreasonable to predict they could be.
  17. You would hope this team is better than 5-11 but it isn't an unreasonable prediction given how poor/inconsistent the offense has been the last 2yrs, also the record away from Nissan Stadium has been extremely poor the last couple of years. Until the team physically shows they can be more productive/consistent offensively and better away from Nissan Stadium they are going to struggle to consistently make the playoffs. There is certainly a path for them to be a 9-10 win team this year, that is if the OL comes together and the run game is a solid foundation for the offense. If the OL/Run Game struggle this could be a very long season.
  18. They definitely enter the season as favorites, injuries as always will play a massive part in how things play out.
