    Chow's excuse is that it's only his second year. If it's the same story next year I think he'll feel the heat too.

    I've come around a little & laid off him TJ. Most of my post here was sarcasm.

    This was the game Chow went away from the running game & hey presto Vince got his @$$ handed to him.

    What's wrong with Mawae until we find a young long term guy. Other than that I'm with you. Our youngsters have stepped up on the O line but we need more.

    The $40 mill needs to go on a DE,MLB,S & CB.

    O linemen are the most expensive FA's out there,they need to come through the draft.

    Left T's especially...

    A DE, or safety would be best taken with out 1st pick, screw quantity, we need QUALITY, make our defense mean again...

    Revisionist history? Check the stats. And yes, it is a team sport. What the offense does has an impact on defense and vice versa.

    If the idea is having your players in position to make a run for a few seasons beginning in '08, why do you bring in an aging vet who won't be around in '06? I'm not saying anything except the next C needs to be on the roster next year just as the next G should be.

    Ideally. But with the cap room the Titans have, I would pay it. I'm talking about the interior here. I think we are good at LT and I have always felt Stewart will be a beast in time. I am not confident on anyone we currently have on the inside long-term.

    Wise words IMO. I can see a C coming from the draft though & Mawae seeing out his deal as a mentor.

    Okay I'd pay for a stud at G,that wouldn't be too bad. It's lefties that are the cap killers. Unless we get a 1st rounder yes you may not know what you have in OL'men in time for 08.

    In the last 3-5 years the Titans have drafted HEAVILY on the defensive side of the ball.

    Unfortunately the majority of those picks we have panned the draft for have not turned out to be gold.

    Your point MsTitan?

    I guess it depends on who is available in FA and the draft. If a real road grader OG is available in either I would have no problem pulling the trigger.

    The key is to make sure whoever we spend money on is going to be a true upgrade.

    I haven't watched replays of the games enough to really tell where the problems are running the ball or if it is the OC or OGs or OTs that are not getting the job done. If our OC is one of the problems then he needs to be replaced. Either way we need to address the weakest link with a big upgrade.
