    Were you thinking the same thing last year.



    That being said I don't see how they can give us a B grade.

    Just face it you got swept this year by a really bad "rebuilding" Titans team. There is no excuse for the bottom feeder Tinhorns other than your front office.:ha:

    I'm surprised Demarcus Ware wasn't listed on the "Best" list for the draft. I don't watch the Cowboys alot, but he's always making plays when I do. And he was making a big impact from game 1.

    I think last year's draft for the Titans may be the best since they moved to TN. Only time will tell, but it's certainly one of the best. Here are recent drafts for comparison

    The only thing we were thinking last year was how injuries decimated the Titans chances.
    We can sweep you any year, even our rebuilding year after a salary cap purge, but not in a year in which injuries wipe out our offense and defense.

    Consider last year a gift.

    Should have got an A...

    When you consider the number of rookies who made the team and those who contribute i think this is a far better class then some other recent ones. In addition to three starters we got bo scaife, brandon jones and roydell. Not sure what positive things we can say about roby any more though. We had 2 other offensive lineman make the team as well.

    What more can you ask from one draft?

    Roby may have hit a rookie wall. Besides, you can't catch the ball if it doesn't come your way and I have not even seen a pass his direction hardly for a couple of weeks. Roby was very good at returning kicks until Pacman took over. I still think he was a good pick.

    gloating about beating the Titans last year is sad.....just like gloating about beating the Texans this year....you guys are a poor excuse for a football team this year, so I suggest you not be too vocal on certain things. Although, I can see why you would gloat about beating the titans last year - it's the only highlight in your franchise's pitiful history.

    So you really expected to beat the Titans that year? What this year has proven is that your team NEEDED all of the injuries last year to beat our team, this year was no big suprise we are rebuilding while you guys were suppose to be fighting for a playoff spot ( not 1st pick in the draft). So what are the excuses now... injuries? I hope you guys do draft R.Bush with the first pick and keep him, with the fact that you guys have given D. Davis(a good player by the way) a new contract and add that with what 1st picks get paid you guys will have about 60-70 mil tied up on one position.
