    Sirmon is awfully light in he britches to play middle linebacker, taking on blocks from offensive linemen and fullbacks on running plays. I think he could have enormous difficulty being a run stopper....but, hey, what do I know?

    "Thornton, rated by ESPN.com as the No. 22 most attractive free agent."

    of course ... we don't sign top 20 FA's

    "Bulluck has also started at both outside spots for the Titans, and so the pair provides the inventive Schwartz considerable flexibility."

    "inventive" ? I'd rather have consistent

    Alrighty we gotta chance

    Now Schwartz has no reason to complain about talent

    Now we put Sirmon in the middle and we will have a good LB corp.

    Good move here, though of course we haven't seen the terms yet. But he's a good LB.
