    The last two season the Braintrusts have told us not to expect the Titans to go nuts in FA. That they would sit out the early orgy of spending that looks like drunken fleet sailors in a new port of call. This team will be built thru the draft and suplimented with role playing FA. Fowler, Gage(good pickup if you ask me) ect. Yeah I will admit I wanted to take a flyer on Alge Crumpler as much as many of you, but now the rumors are flying that although he passes his physical his knees are problematic at best. With this teams history of FA wr bust and injuries that is the last thing we need. My problem is we have this space and we haven't locked up our own yet long term, AH, Stewart, Roos, Baronis, to name a few. That should be our FA priority.

    Agreed, we should lock those guys up and should have locked bell up if his demands are not too outrageous. We can't even keep a role guy like hartsock.

    We are probably going to lose bell and odom. Next year we can lose haynesworth, scaife and stewart. We can't replace all those guys..

    The plan was to go into FA with some needs and come out with even more needs that we can definitely fill on Draft day...........

    Am I the only one happy? Sorry that the Titans haven't blown all of their money on just 2 players. They're going after key players to help. It's alot harder than what most people think to be a GM.

    The plan is to barely make playoffs as long as possible. Due to coaching and managing the roster. If one doesn't work, the other will.

    I agree completely...While it's fun to watch your team sign a " BIG CATCH -HIGH DOLLAR' Player, History is not on the side of teams that do that.
    ( yeah, I know sometimes it works out ) But as often as not the player doesn't live up to expectations and the team ends up in salary cap hell.

    Like everybody else, I think we could us a playmaker at WR . But
    all we really need to do is keep most of last years team on the roster and add good depth - Most play off calaber teams have a good second level of players who can cover when the inevitable happens and a first teamer goes down.

    Their isn't one playmaking FA WR this year. The only way to aquire one is a trade. Chad Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Roy Williams, etc.
