Titans owner Bud Adams talked to Wyatt about big free-agent spending and playoff hopes. Said Adams: “We have to get the players we know can perform and make us look like we’re a tough team to play against again.” The first ten years the team existed 1999 through 2008 we went 101-70 and had six playoff appearances,two AFC championship appearances and one super bowl appearance and had the league's best record twice.The year we celebrated our tenth anniversary where all the players wore the patches that had 10 on them was 2008 and we went 13-3 that year with the best record in the league.From 1999 through 2003 no team won more games during that five year stretch than the Tennessee Titans.Pretty much ever year we were in the hunt except a couple seasons where we had cap issues but we bounced back and during these years we did have Floyd Reese running things but say what you will he did bring in some top notch talent and kept us competing and thats something that Mike Reinfeldt struggled to do and thats keep this team in the winning column. I think one thing that was wrong with Reinfeldt was he was too conservative as the last four years here from 2009-2012 clearly shows and the team quit bringing in really good players and sat on their hands in free agency time after time.I don't know if Bud Adams finally realized we weren't as competitive as we used to be but i think at one time we were always one of the toughest teams in the league and that evaporated over the last few years and i think he takes enough pride in this team to realize we used to always be competitive and maybe him and Reinfeldt being too frugal and worrying about the bottom line cost us the last few years because sometimes you got to spend money and stock your roster with talent to get results which is something Adams did when Floyd Reese was running things. Before 2009 we were in the hunt pretty much every season except for a couple seasons where we went through some cap issues.But we never had a long stretch as right now these last four years with no playoffs and only one season where we barely went above .500 and i think that got Adams attention and he realized we haven't been in contention for a good while now.I'm hoping Ruston Webster will be better in his role as GM than Mike Reinfeldt and so far it looks like he is because the vaults are finally open again and this team is going to be much better by bringing in more talent in free agency and being active and making the team better.As Bud Adams said maybe now that we've gotten some good players in here that can play we will be a tough team to play once again. I'm thinking his decision to be active in free agency and stock the team with more talent plus having some good players brought in through the draft this team will be back to being tough and competitive and hopefully in 2013 we will be competing for the division and a spot in the postseason. Thoughts?
