    We knew cap-rich Cleveland and Minnesota were going to attack free agency with a vengeance and that Washington always does. But it's hard not to be impressed with Tennessee's first-week effort. The Titans definitely overspent for a guy who has yet to prove he's a No. 1 receiver, but David Givens was a nice pickup, and I could say the same for safety Chris Hope, linebacker David Thornton and veteran center Kevin Mawae. Seems to me that the worst of the medicine-taking is over in Tennessee.

    Seems to like what they've done. The money spent on Givens could bite us in the arse or prove to be a masterpiece.

    Vegas approves as well. The Titans have gone from 100-1 to 85-1 to win the Super Bowl. :brow:

    I saw that in the Tennessean this morning. Wonder how much Ty Law would improve our odds.

    Ty Law would be the worst possible pickup for us. =x

    Do you think we paid too much for Givens?
    Was he the best WR available?

    Some thought KVB would bite us in the arse last year. Damaged goods.

    No one suggested signing KVB would hurt us.

    there was no risk involved in KVB, the vet minimum for 1 year, doesn't get anymore cut and dry. Givens however we've already invested lots of bucks and cap space, whether he even sets foot on the field for the Titans.

    The titans will be fine. Don't worry about cap space b/c next year McNair and his 23 mil go away

    I think we paid about market value for a 25(?)year old receiver on the upswing.

    No. TO is definately better, Javon Walker is probably better (but older), Antwan Randle El is arguably better (slightly worse imo).
