    i know which "eddie" you were refering to - it doesn't make it any more sensible though

    Apparently you haven't watched many games this year, otherwise, it would make sense.

    IMO, Brown is a second-tier RB. He shows flashes but consistency has been an issue as it would be with all but a handful of RBs in the league if they played for the Titans right now. Like most RBs in the league, he thrives when the Titans have an effective passing game but has difficulty when teams can key on him as they have much of the season.

    I don't see him ever doing what Eddie did in his prime as far as being effective when defenses stacked it in to stop him.

    CB will never be as consistent as EG was. However, CB has the breakaway potential that Eddie didnt have. CB is also injury prone and cant get the short yardage, EG could play through most of the injuries and could get the short yardage. Its a give and take situation-you want a big play back, be prepared to take 10 2 yard carries before he breaks a 30 yard. If you want 3 yards a carry, dont expect many 30 yard runs.
    CB is an above average, but not great RB. CB and Henry's jobs are secure because the Titans have more pressing needs elsewhere, so there will be no drafting of a RB with a high pick.

    Make your mind up.
    First Volek has proven he can't get it done. Then in the same post we have a weak OL, mediocre RBs and crap at WR not to mention lousy play calling. How many games has Volek has to prove himself?

    I really find it interesting that a running back that absolutely ran wild last year and was rushing for 100 yards before half time in many games is now mediocre. Or how about Henry, a solid NFL back who has shown us when he gets a little room to run can be pretty darn good.

    Yes the OL is the main problem and the coaching scheme is a close second. Saying Volek has proven he can't get it done is ridiculous. How can a guy prove anything with a weak OL, no running game and by your own admission WRs who can't catch. Maybe if we just think this through we might realize that Volek is the same guy who lit it up against poor defenses last year. Are those guys suddenly bad players?
    Volek has a better QB rating for his career than McNair.
