    I'm gonna laugh when JCB tries to go all in on some pick during the season and he loses.

    All I remember was Steve was locked out of our facilities because we did not want to be responsible for his contract if he got hurt again.

    What was the Bus Cook aspect?

    NO, it wasn't bus cook had the posion pill 50 million bonus built into the contract. Everyone knew that that was never, ever going to be paid. Cook/McNair wanted to force the issue and the titans didn't blink. Don't get me wrong I am a Huge McNair fan, have a signed autograph that I am very proud of. But the Titan's got rid of him at the right time, he wasn't ready to be the number two guy, which in truth is where his talent was at the end.

    Buss Cook, as BigTT said, manipulated the situation totally. I mean McMVP working out at the facility during the offseason - lol

    I loved me some McMVP but offseason workout warrior definatly NOT his strengths. McMVP basically spent the offseason at his ranch in Mississippi. BS used the same tactic too get Farve cut loose by GB.

    The 4 letter network ripped in BA and the Titans but was silent about GB.

    It was the Titans fault.

    They knew about the contract and should've had things worked out prior to the lockout incident.

    Should've had the contract restructured or traded/released McNair prior. That is the Titans FO responsibility to not allow an agent to gain that type of leverage.

    A good point was made, especially after watching the 30 min documentary on the NFL Network... why was McNair going to workout during the off-season? He didn't care to workout, he was always at his ranch in MS.

    Total manipulation by his agent.

    Should the Titans have gotten this fixed beforehand? Maybe so. BUT it doesn't change the fact that the incident was orchestrated by the agent. Agents pull this kind of crap and team always looks bad.

    I don't care what went down, bottom line, you don't escort Air out of the building....

    He helped build the franchise, check that, he built the franchise and the mentality of the team upon its arrival to Tenn... The unquestioned leader and rightfully so... I mean sure we had Javon and Eddy and The Bull, but everyone knew who the leader was...

    Other then that fluke 13-3 year (only say its a fluke b/c I STILL can't believe it was KFC who was at the helm for the most part and therefore dubbed the 'leader' sort of), I haven't been as excited about the team as when Air was slamming D-linemen into the ground and just F'in ish up...

    But, in the end, Business is Business, huh?
    GoT and Titans Eternal high five this.
