    What the heck were our coaches doing with all their free time? Not creating a FULL playbook so that Locker or Smith could distribute it to the entire team.

    So I'm assuming 31 other teams have playbooks and can learn and/or get more affiliated with the system, while we're a giant step behind.

    This minicamp is a waste of time and the team is at square zero, thanks Munchak/Palmer!

    That's one hell of an assumption. I'd say all the teams who changed coaches are in the same boat we're in.

    The lockout was randomly lifted for like 12 hours during the staff's first draft. Hell, a lot of players weren't even in town.

    As long as the shipments were dropped off at FedX during that time frame there would be no problem

    Based on the information out there, most teams are in a similar position right now. There is no evidence that the Titans' coaches did a poorer job of distributing playbooks than any other coaches.

    No team in the league expected the lockout to be lifted for a brief period and especially not right in the middle of the draft.

    I know the Ravens entire playbook is on an ipad. Maybe ours are too, and they can't make copies for everyone to have. In those few days the lockout was lifted, only a few guys were reported to have gone by the facilities.

    You guys seriously believe that these two are the only ones with the playbook?

    No way a player goes to a coach, asks for a playbook, and gets turned down.

    I'm with 45 on this, I refuse to believe that nobody has a playbook. If anything, Rusty's just being tight-lipped so that the league doesn't penalize our staff for having contact.

    So to answer the OP's question, No our coaches are not this stupid.

    I'd say all those guys who were there from day-1 with Cortland, all have books.
