    In the last 10 drafts these are the WRs drafted and the rounds they were selected in... you'd think we'd have figured it out by now that in order for this franchise to hit on WR, we'd better do in in the first round. I almost threw up in my soup when I read the final list.:gag:

    When Britt is out, we don't win period. Over the last couple years I think we've won something like one game and lost 10 without him in the lineup. We need another threat to keep 8-9 out of the box, otherwise CJ is not going anywhere.

    If we do go WR with our first pick, he had better have a very clean injury history. Tired of taking guys who only get hurt.

    That 2005 group wasn't too bad.

    We sure do like trying to find that awesome WR in the 3rd and 4th rounds.

    Sad thing is Jake Schifino and Darrell Hill were better than most those others and didn't get near the opportunities. Fisher hated those guys for whatever reason.

    On the field Britt is an elite receiver, perhaps top 5 in the league.

    So you're trying to say that you think Britt is no good?

    18 reasons to not draft a receiver in the first round: Kenny Britt

    17+87+83=187 reasons to draft a receiver in the first round: Williams, Hawkins, and Mariani.

    Honestly though, I don't think we should draft a receiver in the first round. We have bigger needs. We've won with bad receivers before, when have we won with bad offensive and defensive lines? Never.

    I think he's insinuating that the injuries make him a bad pick up by the Titans?
