    Damn, I just thought of that and was ready to post, but yea youre right.

    Problem is by taking Fokou out it sends a bad message that if you play well, the starter still keeps his job. That was a Fisher rule, people like how Munchak handles most things, and he's always played the better player.

    If McCarthy really was better than Fokou, we'd see him playing.

    Lol if he didnt dive on the ball right there Griffin could have picked it up and maybe took it around the corner and scored.....but either way if he didnt get it there was about 3 other Titans players to fall on it right there!

    Wrong. That's not how it was with VY when he went down was it?

    Why not alternate them by series and see who performs the best? That way neither guy sits and neither guys gets worn down.

    McCarthey has to be better than 60% he is playing on special teams.

    That won't last long. Him being healthy :injured:

    Let's face it. We will end up with Foku regardless. McCarthy can start then when injured on the first series Foku will play the rest. Or we can cut to the chase and put Foku in now.

    That's fine. If healthy McCarthy starts until he is not healthy. He is the overall better LB. He is also the better tackler!

    So what is the over/under on how many plays it takes before he is "Not healthy" again. I would say 7.

    I'm fine with Fokou starting, he was solid and didn't give up any bad plays. I wouldn't be opposed to C-Mac getting a couple series though. Slowly work him into it. It'll keep him healthy and give him a chance to prove he can stay healthy without slapping Fokou in the face and then asking him to step back up when C-Mac goes down.

    Michael Griffin woulda kicked that ball out of the endzone, Fokou made the play, stop your whining. And VY can't be relied on, thats why he lost his job to old man Collins.

    I wouldn't mind doing this for one game to see what we have in both guys.
