    it can't get worse if the veterans aren't worth spit.

    but that LB group was the strength of the defense heading into last offseason - remember. that was everyone's argument who was against the DJ pick.

    I do not believe that this went from a competent - no worries group .... to not being worth spit


    let me make this clear as mud .....
    no rookie LB will be able to come in here and improve a unit that has been together for several years

    i was one of the ones who wanted DJ and dansby the year before that.

    you must have watched different defense than i did. all of that chemistry we had allowed 170 yards rushing in two straight games. then after that, we allowed labrandon toefield to have his first 100 yard game in his three year career.

    but no worries, because we have chemistry.

    and two of the three guys we have in there are so solid, they might not be back next season.

    Lofa Tatupu and LeRoy Hill??

    Actually, our run defense, defense in general is going to suck as long as we have Schwartz running the show.

    I'm with Puck here. I'm getting tired of the constant infatuation with Hawk. There is not a ghost of a chance in hell that we will trade down to get Hawk, so why the fascination? As long as Reese is in charge here we will not pick a LB high in the draft. Does no one remember his well stated philosophy that he gave last year. He just doesn't think LB's are worth high draft picks. Last year one of the highest rated players on the Titans board was Derrick Johnson. If he didn't pick him last year, he is not going to pick Hawk this year. Most teams are lucky to get a once in a football generation chance to pick a franchise QB. This is our chance, and we are not going to be dumb enough not to take it, or we will risk staying a mediocre team for years after McNair retires. The football gods seem to be smiling on us again. If we trade down, we will be spitting in their face. We don't need more draft picks, we already have too many young players. We need free agents and some difference makers, not 13 more draft picks.

    BigTit, you either have selective hearing or creative hearing

    I said heading into last offseason
    not heading into this offseason

    quit trying to twist the words around to support your theory

    they might have sucked last year, but we had no worries heading into the '05 draft

    granted

    but that doesn't justify passing on a franchise QB in the 1st round for a LB

    that's what I call hitting the nail square on the head

    I could not agree with this post more

    we need to add Veteran help to the LB corps
    not alot of rookies that will be subjected to Die Schwartzie's suckness
