  1. I initially wanted Tennessee to trade down in the 8-12 range and pick Corey Davis there, since I thought he was a small reach at 5. However, after seeing Williams and Ross get taken right behind him at 7 and 9, I'm glad they didn't trade back. I would've liked OJ Howard at 18, but without a second round pick getting a CB was a definite need-to-do there. Not entirely sold on Jackson but in JRob I trust. Now I'm hoping they grab Sidney Jones at some point, let him sit and heel (sorry) for a year. He'll be a steal for whoever gets him in my opinion.
  2. Honestly, I've seen more Titans' fans wanting Corey Davis over Mike Williams (myself included). Williams' lack of separation is a big concern for me, especially since the Titans coaching staff has yet to show they can scheme WRs open. I think Davis' greater speed and better route running give him the edge. I would be very pleased if they took Davis at 18, even if Williams was still there.
  3. Reading responses from Falcons fans on Reddit, it seems Quinn took over play calling on defense around their bye (week 11) which prompted their improvement. They got consistent pressure on Brady during the Super Bowl, but that was really the first time all season they've been able to do that as a group. Despite that pressure, the Pats were still able to move the ball really well, it just didn't show up on the scoreboard because of the turnovers. Also, these defense ranks are pretty bad: Yards/game: 25th Points/game: 27th Red zone: 32nd 3rd down %: 26th Rushing/game: 17th Passing/game: 28th YAC: 32nd Doesn't seem as much of a head scratcher after looking at that.
  4. Much more a fan of the NFL than fantasy football. I check the inactives Sunday morning and make lineup adjustments as necessary, then that's it until the noon games are over. I don't even look at my opponents' lineups. I hope my guys do well and I do cheer when I see they got a big play or a touchdown or something, but not even once do I check my scores until I get home after the noon games. I watch every Titans game no matter what. I always go to my parents' house to watch the noon games with my dad and brother (and get free lunch). They got Redzone for the first time this year, so I've been dual-watching that with the Titans game because they always play at noon. For the late games I return home and, while I don't typically watch them (unless Tennessee's involved), I do keep gametracker tabs open for each one and check them every 5-10 minutes to keep up to speed on them. Sunday night I'll do the same thing if I'm interested in the game, otherwise I'll check it much less often. Monday and Thursday I'll check maybe once or twice because of other commitments. I'll also browse these forums and the NFL and Titans subreddits pretty much every day throughout the week.
  5. The coldest game Mariota has played in was against Oregon State his last year in college, around 40 at kickoff and dipping down to the 20s. He threw for 367 yards and 4 TDs. This will be quite a bit colder, but to be honest I'd worry more about KC's secondary smothering the Titans' receivers and the chance for a similar gameplan to last week against Denver - heavy on the rushing, not a lot of passing. I think those will be a bigger factor than the cold.
  6. I nominate Gronk. He had a couple weeks of typical Gronktitude, but has been hurt/out most of the year. Ugh, him, Eddie Lacy, Keenan Allen, Kelvin Benjamin, no wonder I'm in the toilet bowl.
  7. The gift that keeps on giving.
  8. I don't know what you're talking about. I thought that game was thoroughly enjoyable. If Bradley still has his job after this, I will be amazed.
  9. Huddle Perfect scoring, I need Diggs and Minnesota's Defense to outscore Rudolph by 12. I'm pretty much screwed.
  10. This. The fumbles late in the game are an issue, but I don't see that becoming a trend. Beyond that he looked alright - ran some people over, picked up some nice yards after contact, and caught a few passes. Also bear in mind Minnesota has an excellent defense and Tennessee's offensive line has 3 new starters this year. There were some kinks, but overall it was a decent start.
  11. How about Tennessee? 2007 - RB Chris Henry (50th overall) 2008 - DT/DE Jason Jones (54) 2009 - DT Sen'Derrick Marks (62) 2010 - No pick, traded to NE previous year for 3rd round pick (Jared Cook) 2011 - LB Akeem Ayers (39) 2012 - LB Zach Brown (52) 2013 - WR Justin Hunter (34) 2014 - RB Bishop Sankey (54) 2015 - WR Dorial Green-Beckham (40) Not a single one of them is still on the roster.
  12. I think everyone knows about Tajae Sharpe already, so I'll throw out an IDP guy: Kevin Byard, S, 3rd round rookie out of Middle Tennessee State. He had 19 interceptions (4 TDs) in 49 games in college, picked off one in the first preseason game, and has a few picks in training camp (including 2 the day after the first game). He's a ballhawk. Right now he's behind Rashad Johnson at FS, but Johnson is only on a 1-year deal, so Byard could very well end up the starter come next year.
  13. This is pretty much it. His rookie year he got a bit of a pass since he hadn't actually played a game in over a year, so most of his mistakes were attributed to rust in addition to the usual rookie learning curve. He did have some productive moments, and the idea was he could build on those coming into his second year and have a whole offseason to learn and improve. Well that didn't happen. He showed up out of shape with no grasp on the playbook. He couldn't run a route to save his life. He had frequent drops and gave up on plays. About all he could do was run downfield and leap for jump balls. He showed no almost improvement whatsoever from his first day as a rookie. He's got all the athletic ability in the world, but his mental ability is limited at best and he has a poor work ethic to boot. The Titans had enough and got rid of him. From what I hear the OL they got for him was likely going to be among Philly's first cuts so I hold no expectations of him, but at least he'll give some effort.
  14. I was considering starting a "who to watch for on your team" thread just to bring him up. He's been showing great route running, very good field awareness getting his feet down on sideline throws, and generally catching everything thrown his way. His performance quickly propelled him to getting first team reps in mini camp, and in training camp he's done nothing but reinforce that move. Having said that, he is a rookie WR and a Titan, so he could come crashing back down to mediocrity at any moment. For now though he has inspired cautious optimism among Titans fans and is definitely someone to keep an eye on.
  15. The same thing is happening to me.
