    Why are we always so ready to think that our players will suck? At the first sign of adversity we run for the hills. Jesus, the kid has a hamstring injury and is sitting out because of it, this is a non-issue. He's not going to just forget how to play WR from sitting out for a few weeks. As long as he's getting mental reps in and studying his playbook he won't miss all that much. Have some faith in our guys this year.

    I like Burke's optimism but he's totally wrong. Nate is not gonna give up the spot, even though his receptions were down he still lead the team is receiving yards. Nate ain't done. Hunter can/will be good but he's not unseating Nate for his spot.

    Why do we always have so many hamstring injuries? I have my thoughts, wondering what you guys think.

    You are just a WR hater.

    73 catches, over 1000 yards last year (with Tyler Bray throwing to him) after coming off major injury.

    Yeah some wimp. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    YEAH YOU GOT A QUAD EYEROLL

    Yes. If there is one thing I know... It is that OTAs will make or break your season.

    After all, if you don't run around without pads for a few weeks, how can you be trusted with pads during the season?

    Jesus Christ.

    Hunter will start most of our games. His floor is our third best reciever.

    OTAs won't change that. When Wright was missing time, I didn't hear everyone bi**hing at him.

    Who does he start over? That's a pretty ridiculous statement.

    He's #4 on the depth chart at best and has no immediate chance of rising above that. Unless you think NFL starting rosters include 4 WRs, he won't be starting "most" of the Titans' games.

    WR1- Britt

    WR2- Hunter

    Slot- Wright

    He will be immediately better than Wright on the outside. As for Nate.. Hunter is just better than him. A lot better. Nate will be good off of the bench but Hunter is just better. Don't know how else to say it.

    Best case(for him)- Britt struggles with injuries and he outperforms Wright, and becomes our top reciever.

    Worst case(for him)- Britt flashes, Wright makes the next step, and Hunter is left to stretch te field like a slightly more effective Randy Moss (when he was with us)
