  1. So right. Wisdom from an Elder: There reaches a point in life's journey that arguing slips away and one simply lets others be wrong. I will likely be long gone before some on TR reach that understanding. 'Til then ..... pro
  2. The team has historically played better when facing long odds. It would be nice if that holds true this year. The only way that happens is if Mariota plays a full game as though it was the final 5 minutes. And stays healthy! pro
  3. Wow. I used to play the 'lectric football game for hours and hours. That was well over 65 years ago, actually close to 70 years. I had the only one in my neighborhood in Miami and the other kids would flock to our house. We had contests to win the game, and contests to race the players from one end of the field to the other. You could redirect your man two times only (the players would jump and change directions constantly). I was the only one who knew which player in what color would usually go the fastest and the straightest. Ergo, I won most of the time. Madden changed all that crazy fun. Nice memories. Thanks. pro
  4. I am one of those 'older guys' who does not understand the need or the desire to harass, insult, demean, or otherwise bully and intimidate another person anywhere in life, including a message board. I seldom post for a number of reasons. One primary reason is there is nary a thread that doesn't contain such harrassment and outright negativism. Someone referenced the early years of this message board when football games - the Titans - were the subject of the threads. I know it is the offseason and more insightful discussions occur inseason. I enjoy actually reading and posting about football. I do not enjoy the hatefulness of so many threads. This, however, remains my daily board of choice ... for now. pro
  5. No. The talent was there in the Oregon system. No way to really know the injury bug that has crippled him every year in some way or another. Preferred him over his comparison QB. pro
  6. Any word on what needed correction in his foot?
  7. I don't like the skinny appearance of the numbers. They look 'weak'. pro
  8. There is no good way to know JRob's inner thoughts about the Mariota prognosis. It would not surprise me at all if he has basically been told from "on high" to give MM this year to prove his consistent value. She seems to really like MM. However, she knows that if injuries and mediocre performance continues, then she has told JRob it's all his to do what is necessary to benefit the team (sorry for the awkward sentence structure). What she will have to do is trust JRob's assessment at the end of the year whether the team moves on from MM or not. I suppose a transition tag could be in the background, but that would most likely be another 'try out' year which would likely be opposed by all involved. pro
  9. Imagining a bit, I think he would have gone with the best trade available if the return was good enough. Thankfully we won't ever know since the draft fell so great for the Titans. pro
  10. I am so f****ng proud of my city, my hometown. A city is people who love it and are proud to call it 'home'. I came from Miami in 1964 to attend grad school at Vanderbilt. From a big city to a big town in the middle of what I heard described as the Bible Belt. No liquor by the drink. Stores closed on Sundays. Interstates just starting to be designed and built. Only known for the Grand Ol' Opry, and then largely in the South. What a change in the past 58 years. Now also known as the 'It City'. People flocking to join the growth (too many imo). Great dining, although I don't recognize most of the names. NFL. NHL. SOCCER. BASEBALL. COLLEGE SPORTS ACROSS THE STATE. But my city stands out among the other great cities and towns in the great volunteer state of Tennessee. I am proud. So very proud. pro
  11. Tomorrow will be BPA all the way. CB, edge, RB, S or CB.
  12. 'A-' draft so far. Only thing holding it from an A+ is the uncertainty that the ACL recovery might be less than 100%. pro
