Would you prefer the Titans lose out to possibly get a higher draft pick?

Poll closed Dec 10, 2012.
  1. Yes. Wins mean nothing now. I want the higher pick.

    45.0%
  2. No. You play to win the game.

    43.3%
  3. I'm indifferent. I barely care enough to answer this poll.

    Absolutely we have to keep some guys around. And there is some good talent worthy of keeping for a new coaching regime to utilize. My position is that we don't really have an identifiable core of players of the same caliber as the truly competitive teams. eg- nate Washington is serviceable during a transition but nothing to build around. Same for the other WR's except maybe Britt, maybe KW (not sold he has the physique for a franchise player). TE- Stevens is our only solid player, not franchise type, cook gone, thompson a project at best. QB- Locker- deserves 2 more years under a new coach/OC. OL- Roos decent but aging. Stewart OK- the rest are poo-poo. RB- CJ worth keeping but not at his price and definitely NOT a franchise player.

    DL- a mess. I don't know what we have because I don't trust Tracy Rocker as a coach. Get Washburn back in here as a consultant the rest of this year and let me hear what he has to say. He a DL developing expert IMO. LB's- McCarthy is worth keeping but he is brittle. 2 years running with injuries and he came on board with an injury history. Safeties?- I just lost my lunch. CB's- there goes my dinner.

    You get my point........

    Let every one of these young play and play a lot to determine who we keep and who we cut. Build the OL FIRST and get a bruiser RB. We can see what Jake can do under a new system but really we can't judge him until year 2. On defense- I don't even have an idea of where to begin with a plan except to get Washburn in here to evaluate our young DLmen.

    We won't be a playoff contender for 3 years but at least we can get a start on how to build up a team the right way. Who knows, we might even hit on a young talented coach like the SF and BAL did. Oh- and go to Hobby Lobby and pick up a 5" cork cone to shove in Bud's mouth if he starts giving directions to his expensive new staff.

    Say what you want about Bud, but he is trying to change this franchise for the better.

    Its obvious that Fisher was not the answer, and I suspect he will do the same with Munch.

    I just read this in Don's Power Rankings (SI.com) regarding the 26th ranked Titans:

    "It's got to hurt a little in Titans-world that Jeff Fisher has his Rams winning some big games and on the upward curve in St. Louis, while Tennessee is mired in the same old mediocrity that has prevailed for quite some time now. Come to think of it, at 4-8, mediocrity is a decent goal in Nashville about now."

    I mean, its somewhat true, but I'm still pissed he said that. For one, I can talk sh*t about my team, but he can't. Two, while your beloved Fish was here, he was quite the model of mediocrity in his own right.

    Sure he got pretty close.... But one 'pretty close' definitely doesn't count, and two, we had some serious talent those times. In fact the years we were actually good, I might put it more on all those 'top-tier/elite/undervalued' players we had, rather then due to superior coaching/strategy/scheme.)

    Might I also add that those were the years good 'ol Bud spend some money on the team as well, rather then curse at it and wonder.

    Anyway back to Fisher, till he does get a ring, I'm just simply not a believer. He didn't get one here in like 16 years, and at times did definitely have elite talent. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not spiteful and I hope he does well (just not against us off course).

    But so help me God, if a Jeff-led Ram team meets us in 'some-down-the-line' Super Bowl, and wins, I actually don no what i'd do to be honest....

    That would be so fitting actually. I will be on suicide watch with VY if that happens.

    How would that be fitting? That would be an injustice of the worst kind.

    Riverman, this is exactly how I think we should handle the rest of the season, "Let every one of these young play and play a lot to determine who we keep and who we cut."
