    Okay first off, I know how a lot of us complain that we never get media attention but this is what happens. A bunch of "writers" who barely watched (if any) the Titans last year giving their opinion on what the team needs. This guy probably doesn't realize just how bad our OL was, how bad Cook was in everything except being the guy that is "well he has all the potential in the world" player, we had no depth on our DL, horrible tackling at the Safety position, and I think one of if not the worst in short yardage situations last year.

    So we add the best pass blocking OG in the NFL, not just on the market, probably a top 10 Guard overall. We add a do it all TE that does have a bit of concerning play in the receiving game but I think it's more of a one year fluke. A big body at DT that can help collapse the pocket, something we desperately needed. George Wilson and Bernard Pollard who are both starting caliber Safeties, and Shonn Greene who was one of the best players last year in short yardage situations. So how are we the losers again?

    WOW.

    What a moron.

    We easily had a top 5 FA... and that's a conservative statement. The only team I can think of that did any better is the Seahawks, but it's still debatable.

    He literally must think Cook is Tony Gonzalez and Hasselbeck is Tom Brady.

    "a player who’s averaged 4.2 yards per carry" Since when is 4.2 yard a carry bad?

    I hate that everyone on here who see's this link will click on such a terrible article, because it drives viewers and more clicks for them.

    Do these dummies expect us to sign Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, Richard Sherman, Aldon Smith, and Adrian Peterson or something?

    Yeah, read about 2 lines and stopped.

    Greene isn't going to be a pure back up and Cook ain't much to write home about.

    His only point was that Cook has all this potential, which meens he has never done a thing. I am excited for the first time in years at what they did in free agency! Kudos Mr. Webster

    Yeah. This guy should probably let someone that knows what they're doing have his job.

    It's pretty upsetting that someone is paying this guy.

    Don't want to be a debbie downer, but our off-season wasn't as great as everyone on this board thinks. We're all happy that we're making moves, but know that it's all settled and i'm thinking more and more it's not as great. Still not a bad off-season, not a great off-season though, just good.

    We spent a ton of money on an offensive guard, who is a great pass blocker but an average to good run blocker. Our pass protection was good (when healthy) is run blocking we struggled with. Levitre is good, but with that money you'd expect a difference maker and i'm not sure he'll be that big of one. Letting Jared Cook walk was the right move, I always supported Jared but he's never going to put it together. All these outside sources say we didn't utlize him correctly, but they've never watched a Titans game i'm sure. He was in the slot more than he was lined up as a TE, we put him in position to be a star (just couldn't get him the ball). He's a terrible blocker, and cared more about money than winning it seemed. Delaine Walker will be a better blocker, but has stone hands - those drops are going to drive us crazy, watch. His flexibility in playing TE, SLOT, and FB will be crucial though. Sammie Lee Hill has a ton of potential and may be the big guy we need, we also said that about Shaun Smith. Shonn Greene got paid way too much, but we needed a power back. I'm not hating our off-season, but it doesn't surprise me the national media is questioning these signings. I hope we prove them wrong!

    I'd rate our off-season as a B right now.
