    I guess we shall wait and see if Bud doesn't care after the season.

    The seats are sold. Bud might lose some beer money but those crazy enough to go to the final homes games will likely drink enough to make up for those who don't. I sure plan to.

    And who are these free agents the Titans needed to bring in? Right now, the glaring lack of a safety is obvious but there wasn't anyone, I recall, who was a UFA. The OL has been an issue but they've done well the last few weeks. The DL has stepped up big the last two.

    Chris Myers was available at center - would have been our gain and Texans loss, safeties indeed were in short supply (that's why we re-signed Griffin), but there was more DL talent available (why stop with Wimberley), and we could have held on to Finnegan.

    Finnegan wanted outside corner money. I don't blame him. But Verner and McCourty have more upside. The Titans could have gone after Mario but the Manning stuff took them out of that along with possibly one of the centers. The Titans DL was the best unit on the field today.

    The offense sputtered in the red zone. WRs/TEs had some mistakes as did the QB.

    You want to point fingers, I'd start with the vets who should be setting the tone and be more consistent. Griffin, Babs, Cook and Wash are among those players and they've been far from consistent this season.

    Chris Myers took less money to stay with the Texans.

    Bottom line: We care more than the owner does. If he cared half as much as us, changes would have been made years ago. I wish that Bud was more like Jerry Jones. Jerry puts money into his team. Yes, he does snoop around into the team too much, but at least he shows that he cares. I would love to see a coordinator lose their job tomorrow. Bud has to make good on his threats. Hell, leek something to the press that you are interested in Gruden or the HC at Oregon. Walk your old ass along the sideline during practice. Do something!

    It's hard to blame Bud for not being willing to spend money when he was going to give Peyton the franchise to play for the Titans.

    We need two new safteys. When ever Griffin slides over to SS to replace Babs, we suck!

    When ever Griffin is allowed to stay at FS, he sucks!

    Find new safteys!
