    I wish I understood behind-the-scenes why Britt kept getting into so much trouble and was getting hurt (injuries do seem to chase some players). That would help know whether he's a different "changed" player now. My fear is the same things that caused him problems in the past will keep causing problems in the future - it hurts a team to have a top salaried player always hurt or in trouble. I can understand if the Titans can't bring themselves to pay what he might get on FA market.

    I keep thinking back to the players that made the Titans go - guys like McNair, Eddie, Bulluck, Mason, - and the only guy I loved as a player who had alot of off field stuff going on was Haynesworth. I enjoyed watching PacMan too, but think all the distraction hurt the team even before his troubles became legendary. I guess I want to hear that Britt's becoming more like the team leaders I think of - not somebody to worry about what might happen next.

    That's one of those games 2 years ago that we ultimately lost. I mentioned it. 8 crap games vs 1 good one?

    I'd hardly say 8 crap games vs 1 good one...

    He was excellent against the Saints and Falcons in his rookie season, nearly bringing us back in both games.

    He actually played very well against the Patriots before separating his shoulder.

    He was great against the Lions which even you pointed out back when it happened.

    To be honest, the bulk of his poor performances came after he was injured. Who's to say what type of player he is when healthy...

    Pre-injury: 57/98 (58.2%), 771 yards, 5 TD, 1 INT, 97.4 rating
    Post-injury: 154/282 (54.6%), 1947 yards, 9 TD, 10 INT, 71.2 rating

    People pretend like that separated shoulder had no impact on his game.

    I would also be willing to say that the offensive line we had his rookie year was considerably better than the one we had last season.

    We are just over a month away from preseason and I can't wait. Its getting so damned boring and repetitive on here. Seems like we keep hitting the same threads and posts over and over again.

    I guess on the plus side of things... no one has went to jail... yet.

    To me, Locker's legacy is yet to be determined...BUT I don't have a whole lot of faith in him turning in to a TRUE difference maker for us. This season will determine a whole lot about which way he is headed.

    The injury didn't help the cause, but I think the rest of the offense being in shambles when he came back was the killer.

    A different offensive line combination almost every week. Washington supposedly dogging it. Britt in and out of the lineup. The only constant on the offense at that point was a screen pass to Wright.

    Four sacks in the first four games and then 21 in the last seven.
