    It's a message board. Very few of us can 'analyze' the technique of the Guard (except, of course, when Saffold rekindles our Andy Levitre syndrome responses). But we all imagine we are the QB. Of course when we take our 3-step drop in our living room, we have no pressure in our face, our receivers are always open, the safety is never bating us into a bad throw, and our peripheral vision is always 20/20. As Brad Hopkins said yesterday, Marcus biggest problem, and likely the reason he has not been extended, is more about his AVAILABILITY than his ABILITY. But honestly, at this point, I could give less than 2 f's about it. I just want to watch a football team that is winning and brings a little something interesting to the field. If that Is MM, great. If that is Tannehill, fine. We are all message board experts. So I will use all lf my 40+ years of expertise and say that preseason means less than squat and if MM can't stay healthy, even if his first 5 games are QB'd at a 123.8 rating, he won't be extended. After that, alway forward, never back.

    Thought! Save up all this deep over analysis until after the first regular season game. You will live a happier, more fulfilled life.

    BTW, Oilerman was and is one of Mac's strongest supporters. He never jumped on the NOD train. Shouldn't defend Scotty. He loves doing that himself.

    Having read the game thread I would have no idea that MM QBR was a 123.8. You boys are having an interesting preseason.
  5. Ten likely starters this season are playing in their final contract years. Gonna make for an interesting season and off-season. Hoping we get 'final year bounce' from many. Under contract in 2020: (31) Logan Woodside Dion Lewis Delanie Walker,Jonnu Smith Adam Humphries, Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor, AJ Brown, Kalif Raymond Taylor Lewan, Roger Saffold, Nate Davis Daquan Jones, Matt Dickerson, Cam Wake Jurrell Casey, Jeffrey Simmons Harold Landry, Sharif Finch, David Long, Derick Roberson, DeAndre Walker Rashaun Evans, Jason Brown Malcolm Butler, Adoree Jackson Kevin Byard, Kenny Vacarro, Dane Cruikshank, Amani Hooker Ryan Succop Key Free Agents (decisions) Mariota, Tannehill Henry Conklin, Kelly, Pamphile, Jones Johnson, Urban Woodyard Ryan Kern, Brinkley
  6. Smart. Precise route runner. Locker room leader with above average football IQ. Trained by Bellichek and Brady, with a winning mentality.
  7. Here is a bit of honesty. Until we signed him I had never heard of him. Which only means that I no longer follow the NFL like a religion. We got more than I anticipated out of Correa. Hopefully this is more of the same.
  8. Jake, remind me why you associate as a Titans fan again? No doubt that as a fan of the team we are likely going to give him a pass. That wasn't my point. ESPN built their coverage around him as 'DRAMA". They precast the segment to seek out social justice warriors and touch all the right feelies. In this case, I was neither excusing nor accusing the kid. I was pointing out the inherent bias in the coverage.
  9. Anyone who has followed me here for the past 15 years know that my politics run a little bit to the left of Che Guevera. So my aversion to social justice warriors isn't typically high. In fact, I often resemble one. But last night's ESPN debacle on Jeffrey Simmons was just the most ghoulish side of liberal social justice. For ESPN, that was their moment to inject 'drama' into the draft coverage. They had Trey Wingo set up on his own desk to properly intone all the right words. They warned us of the 'graphic nature' of the video. Then they proceeded to truth/explain how all of this went down four years ago. They forgot to show his on-field highlights. They forgot to show him taking the phone call from the Titans. They mentioned in quiet whispers his 4.0GPA as a Freshman, the support of the AD, the support of the head coach. The fact that he had been a model citizen on and off the field. They mentioned it -- knowing full well that the 'graphic video' was the only thing that people would focus on. In short, it was made for television melodrama that falsely shapes the narrative around the kid. I watched the video of him taking the call from Strunk, Robinson and Vrable. With his baby by his side, he literally cried throughout the 2 minute phone call. On what should be the happiest day of this kid's life, he had clearly been NFL-shamed by '11 teams who took him off the board' (Chiefs better not have been one of them). We all get second and third and fourth chances. In the case of the most rich and powerful, the chances are infinite. In the case of this young man, the chances were limited. I wanted Ed Oliver. I thought Sweat made more sense given his edge rush skills. But I will now cheer more loudly for this kid when he gets on the field -- precisely because of the 'social warriors' ridiculous melodrama in the ESPN coverage. F'em. Welcome home Jeffrey.
  10. Is anyone left on the board with a major injury issue and possibly a character red flag? That might be our guy.
  11. And it may never be the same car as it was prior to the accident. Risk. Reward. Time. Just sign Suh and wait for it all to play out.
  12. For me, this is an all Ed Oliver draft. Titans will have to get into the top 10. That likely costs us the bulk of our draft this year, or our #1 next year (assuming best case that he falls to #8). IMO, Ed Oliver will become a perennial All Pro with the ability to play anywhere on the front line and even on occasion to stand up outside. I've watched every game he has played in on the collegiate level. He is unstoppable.
  13. If I could trade Ballard straight up for Robinson, I would, and I would throw in a 2nd round draft choice. But I can't. So, let me say that I am content in getting a solid slot receiver, a significant upgrade on the OL, resigning Vacarro, Fluellen and Pamphile. The Wake signing is interesting if nothing else. Lastly, I have to say that while every thread mistakenly turns into a Mary thread, in truth, it is the decision that defines the franchise. The Colts got it right on both Manning and Luck. It's been a long time since we were assured that we have it right at the position. The Colts rebuilt their offensive line last year to great impact. If Saffold is the glue that allows Conklin and Jones to be better, then maybe we are in position to fight the good fight.
  14. FWIW, both Saffold and Humphries signings are fundamentally 2-year deals with low dead money buyouts at the end of the first two years. IMHO, Robinson hasn't been particularly good, but he is aggressive, and he is quick to correct his mistakes. That's something. Titans have a lot to like on the defensive side of the ball. Nice blend of young talent and veterans. I may overvalue Landry, Brown, Evans and Finch, but I like their potential anchored by Woodyard. If Conklin bounces back this season, the offensive line should be very good. I want the skill position players (all of em including the one that can't be mentioned in every thread) to be as good as hoped. Unpopular as it may be, I tend to agree with Oman on the Robinson warming seat. I think Amy Adams is wholly committed to him. That said, his drafts and his free agent decisions have been wildly inconsistent. Time defines.
  15. Not inexpensive, and probably not great news for Jack Conklin in 2020, but a needed upgrade. The draft can focus almost exclusively on defense ... unless they want to take a second bite of the apple in the TE of the future sweepstakes (Jonnu may have been a booboo - though his play before injury was markedly improved).
