    He's not gonna be available 1t 16, but there's no way Miami takes him after trading for Marshall.

    Even if he is available somehow, the Titans have a way bigger need on defense.

    first of all, someone teach me how to actually bet with people on draft picks i wanna get in on that lol.

    second, im not saying we only need cj, im saying we have washington (if he caught balls he would be a stud) and britt not to mention the man with a 68 inch vertical (based only off the 49ers game lol), gage. So its not like we have scrubs like we did a few years back. Plus with cook comin up and scaife we have all the potential we need except maybe someone who can stretch the field at WR.

    But ask yourself what proven playmakers do we have on defense. assuming that bullock is gone or 2nd string, we have tony brown, cortland, and hopefully jason jones if he comes back healthy. we need more than that.....like brandon graham...

    Purely fairytale scenario but supposing we trade for Al, he comes in and plays at a similar level as his contract seasons and remains unhurt (a lot of if's there), our defense would instantly be upgraded. I think we would get more benefit from further improving our D with picks and making it a dominate force for the future before selecting another wr.

    I'm not saying Bryant is not good, just that overall team benefits would be better served elsewhere.

    Two things wrong with that. 1) I don't have enough GRC to cover that bet
    2) That's not the bet I wanted to make. I thought you said Bryant wont get past the Fins @ 12. I'll take that bet and bet all my GRC I have.
    1-12 i'll do it
    saying dez isnt on the board when the Titans pick is another matter; that's at best a 50-50 prop (16/32) and if the Titans move down like I expect them to; could be even worse odds. (24/32) I'm a gambling man but I ain't no fool:)

    Regarding how to bet GRC; i'm assuming you make a gentlemans wager and then just transfer the cash or the the big kahuna can make some prop bets in the sportsbook area.
    Regarding playmakers on Defense; I'm not arguing with you there; but whos to say Marks and Mouton aren't playmakers? If you're giving Cook the benefit of the doubt to be a playmaker on Offense; it's only fair you give Marks and Mouton the same privilege. If we can reacquire Haynesworth....then hell yeah; let's go Offense. The best Offensive talent in the draft is going to be sitting at our feet. Either spiller, bryant, or tate.

    If Bryant is on the board when we pick It'll be a steal. Dudes going to be a stud.

    NO.

    I don't know why people don't understand this- but it doesn't matter if this team had Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, and any other future HOFer all playing together- we wouldn't even use them.

    If anything we need guys that can run after short catches- like Gilyard. We're a ball control team.

    And another thing is- we don't have a QB to trust throwing the ball anymore than he already does.

    I'd like to build from your post adding that Vince can and will improve his stats, but what Vince Young does doesn't require those talents. You're probably right that we wouldn't use them properly. However, Vince does his job, the other 55% of the offense goes thru C.J.. That's just the way Fisher operates. That Cardinals victory proved Vince can be the passing QB if given the chance.

    Yet there are tons of other games that prove Vince CANT be a passing QB when needed.

    A couple good games peppered on his overall sad career thus far doesn't give much to go on.

    The point is - our staff doesn't want the guy throwing the ball much. So we'd bring a guy like Dez Bryant in and want him to block.
