    6. Sign DE Osi Umenyiora
    7. Sign S Laron Landry
    8. Sign WR Greg Jennings
    9. Sign S Jarius Byrd
    10. Draft OLine first round
    11. Draft DE first round
    12. Draft DB first round

    Well, if you add Win the lottery, I think you got it covered...

    Seriously, though we need to find upgrades at S and OL, and we should also look to bring in a QB to compete with Locker.

    Linebacker is not a concern right now, so Manti would be a luxury pick we most likely can't afford.

    im all for Norv Turner as OC. say what u want about him being a headcoach, but as an OC the man knows his stuff...

    i havent looked at upcoming FA's but i know in the draft, we need to go O-line and defense.

    but i cant say who to draft because it depends on the free agents...

    but i would be thrilled with turner as OC. im actually satisfied with gray as DC. i think the man just doesnt have the talent. the defense in my opinion has progressed and has been adding no schemes every week. just god please quit playing corners 10 yards.

    I don't see why people say that about Norv Turner. He hasn't been a successful OC in 20 years and that team was stacked with HOF'ers.

    On offense we need to improve the OL and get a true physical RB to pair with CJ.

    On defense we need to upgrade both safety positions, the NB spot, and improve the DL.

    Whoa whoa whoa, how in the hell are you going to do all of that LOL?

    Did you type this up in your dreams?

    I mean I'm all in on replacing Michael Griffin and Chris Johnson, but what makes you think Laron Landry and Jake Long would come to the Titans? They're both currently on better teams, who IMO want them back in 2013. The Jets didn't sign Landry last year to activate him for only 4 games, they probably want that guy long term.

    And same thing with Jarius Byrd. He's more than likely staying put in Buffalo.

    Then you go on to say "draft O-Line first round, draft Manti Te'o first round." Well which one is it?

    He's just listing off options... a couple will happen. Griffin will surely be gone.

    I pray we could sign Byrd and draft Te'o.

    I do NOT want Jennings. He's past his prime and always hurt... and WR is far from our biggest need. I also don't want Landry or Long because he will be too expensive.

    I'd take Osi for the right price... but I thought he worked out a deal with the Giants and won't be a FA.

    Also HELL NO to Norv Turner... guy needs to just GTFO of the NFL.

    Realistically we will probably land 2 worthwhile free agents, and depend on 2-3 rookies we draft. That'll be your 2013 Titans.

    I hear the Colts are going to get rid of Dwight Freeney. I'd love to bring him here on a 3-4 year deal.
