    I'd still like to see the team sign some interior o-line help, but otherwise I'm good with MR's moves (actually not big on Ruud, but he fills an obvious need). Down to form, nothing too sexy, just proven vets to fill the gaps and provide competition.

    Is Olin Kreutz too ancient to be a viable stop gap option at center? I know he's contemplating retirement. The guy was beloved in the Bears locker room, and a fierce, nasty player. Maybe the Tits can coax a couple of extra years out of him ala Kevin Mawae. Am I nuts that I don't want to start the season with Fernando Velasco atop the Titans depth chart at center (or Eug Amano for that matter... is he back)?

    If the team gets CJ in camp one way or another, I'll be thrilled.

    We're def better. I mean we signed/re-signed a starter at DT, QB, FB, LG, MLB, DE (JJ being able to switch to DE).

    Then extra depth at DE and TE.

    I'm pretty satisfied witho ur signings so far, would've been nice if we signed Mebane or an elite guard but, overall I'm pretty happy. I believe at WR and SS we should give the young guys on our roster a shot.

    I'm satisfied. Our biggest need was finding a vet QB and IMO we got the best one available. We got a QB who won a playoff game last yr and has been to the Super Bowl. When you are rebuilding a team you have to solidify the QB position and I feel we have done that with Hasselbeck and Locker.

    The next thing that needs to get done is signing CJ. It will be interesting to see how this plays out because if CJ isn't in camp by Aug. 11th then with the new rules even if he plays this yr he doesn't accrue a year towards UFA. I think the CJ deal will get done soon and then we will wait and see how TC and preseason goes before spending anymore money.

    I would have liked to see us get one of the better OGs and move Harris back to center and let Amano be the swing backup at OG/C, but it looks like Munch is happy with last yrs guys. IMO the interior OL had way too many mental lapses last yr and was a weak link.

    I love the move of JJ to DE and getting bigger up front. Really looking forward to watching how the new defensive scheme works. I could easily see us having Ruud as the lone Lber on the field in some packages with Hope dropping into the box for extra run support and getting an extra DB on the field.

    heh I had the same suggestion about a week ago. Yeah I'd like to see Kreutz a Titan and think our O-line would be the better for it.

    very happy with the signings we have so far... it'll fall some if we get a WR though.... if we get CJ in... i'd say it's a pretty near perfect offseason as far as perfect goes.
