    Good to see someone got something out me getting some warning points for calling Jesse names and calling him out for posting inaccurate information.

    :D

    Good to hear that Munchak feels that CJ can "contribute fully" in week 1 if the deal is done by this weekend. Those things are easier for RB's than most other positions.

    This is wonderful news! Not only because we have CJ back, but this should lessen the notion that the Titans aren't willing to pay their stars. This could end up helping the Titans land younger free agents in the future.

    I agree with that, but only to a certain extent.

    im not going to sit here and start describing the obvious but there are certain players who deserve to be treated different than the rest of the nfl body. at each position you'll find playmakers and the two in discussion right now (Fitz and CJ) fit such a category.

    however, i do respect the fact that Fitz plays WR and in the modern day nfl is more valuable. also, that he has been playing at an elite level for longer.

    nonetheless, the comparison of CJ to haynesworth is ill-guided. Al was trouble, and im not even kidding, TROUBLE. he only played hard when he was bout to sign his name the next year. CJ is different, other than this holdout period the kid has been great and im not talking about on the field - b/c he's been excellent there. the guy doenst have a big head and is from what i read unanimously liked. He's a team player and if we had treated him better and offered him that contract, of top RB money, right at the end of the lockout he mighta signed. But b/c they dragged it out and he saw palyers collecting 100's of millions - he's wants more. (note im not backing up such a thought process, only showing its easy to trace)

    All im saying is that in big al's case as a FA he didnt deserve to be paid top D-line money, maybe among the top but thats it. remember at that time there were far more consistent players (i.e. Kevin fro the Vikings, Wilfork from the Pats, etc...) for him to even deserve top dollar - especially for a player with a bad history. Course the 'wack' Redskins paid, and now im actually interested to see what the Lions give to Suh b/c of
