    I will seriously question the committment of our front-office personell if they dont at least announce they are in the running...

    We. Must. Do. This. Now.

    The style of our front office is such that the only time we know they're interested in a player is if it is leaked by non local media.

    They like to keep everything under the radar.

    I understand that, but I also understand how badly we need a TE of his caliber.

    If he's not a Titan when all's said and done, I will be HIGHLY disappointed in our FO's efforts to help this organization move forward. Picking a couple of slack-jaws in the draft year after year hasn't worked...they NEED Crumpler for cryin' out loud. You know Heimerdinger would drool if we picked him up.

    If somebody else snags him, I will seriously question the efforts of our front office.

    Why are posters writing as if he is the only big name TE available? LJ smith is a free agent and while the colts will likely tag clark he at this moment is an UFA. Also there is shockey out there as a possible trade.. we have options but needless to say a bigger name TE needs to be making nashville his home this year..

    Crumpler is far and away better than LJ Smith.

    LJ Smith was Franchise Tagged about two weeks ago.

    We're not getting LJ Smith and we're not getting Dallas Clark (both due to the franchise tag).

    The only other decent tight end is Shockey, who would take a 2nd round pick and would be a locker room cancer. Crumpler can be had for nothing.

    That's why people like me are so desperate for us to get Crumpler. After him, there's a huge drop-off in free agent TEs. I don't want to end up with Jeramy Stevens.

  8. They can't be in the running if Crumpler doesn't decide to talk to the team. If he has his heart set on going to Carolina then that's that...

    Shockey in a Titans uniform probably wouldn't be a great idea. The guy has physical AND mental issues...

    Smith has already been tagged, Clark probably will be, and I read somewhere that the Giants aren't actually shopping Shockey
