    Makes me wonder what the plan is. Maybe we will line up 11 Defensive Tackles and blitz every down. Can't have much worse results than last year.

    I remember being super pissed that Fisher left Mookie on the practice squad all those years ago as I remember him balling in the preseason that year. He never materialized on his talent but he is a decent 5th DT.

    This does however make me wonder if we will sign a DE and what Big Po's place on the DL will be.

    Mookie didn't ball that pre-season. The guy was hobbled fro the kneee injury the year before which is why the team kept Vickerson instead. Give the Colt credit for picking the guy up when they were desperate for DT help that year.

    Now after watching that ridiculous attept at a block by Amano I'm hoping the Titans aren't signing guys like Hill and Mookie because they saw dominance aganst our crappy interior OL. I'm sure those guys looked like real studs against that group.

    Damn... with all the offseason moves, I had forgotten about Amano and how he is STILL on the Titans roster and payroll.

    Yeah I guess so a definite log jam at DT now even with the Pititua signing as well as Hill and Klug. But thinking about it longer yeah Klug will be on his way out unless they use him again on the edges where I think he played a lot during his rookie year? He led the team in sacks that year I believe so he may be more useful there as the primary backup DE rather than the 3rd or 4th rotational DT.

    How in the hell did Amano even get into the league? Thats simply embarrassing, and I still can't believe we have not cut him yet. How much is he counting against the cap? If its anything over minimum wage its not worth it. He could have fell down and blocked better than that.

    Probably shouldn't admit this but I remember when he got hurt. They were talking about how big of an impact it was going to make for us and how bad it was and I was celebrating...

    I saw a tweet right after the Titans tweeted that they had signed Johnson that said out of 85 DT's he was ranked 80th last year. Said he did poor in pass rush & run stopping. This move actually surprises me. I thought we were set at DT.
