    I heard it. I also read some of his quotes. He seems to be one of the few players who sound mad. Hopefully, it's a sign he's becoming a leader.

    No, what's sad is the Texans run the zone blocking scheme and they dominate in the run game.

    Didnt the Bronocos run the same type of run blocking scheme all those years under mike s. also?

    until they shake things up we're goin to see the same chit over and over... 18 games is plenty of time to figure out somethings not working. im not sure what it is about the titans but they seem very resistent to change! i would love to see the coaches send a message by benching CJ and griff for a half or so and even some of the o-line. send a message that just because you're a starter and make the most doesnt mean you're gunna stay there until you get hurt or leave the team.

    Alex Gibbs is the guy who knows how to teach zone blocking. He has done it with multiple different teams. I'm pretty sure that Matthews and Munch didn't do much zone blocking back in the day and they seem to have a hard time teaching it.

    I still don't understand our resistance to the toss sweep.

    Prolly has to do with 9 of 11 defensive players being in the backfield .200ths of a second after the snap

    or to leave some continuity so the QB doesnt get killed on passing plays???

    yes its both of them but which is easier to do ,bench the entire o-line or sit CJ.... either or would send a message and POSSIBLY light a fire under some butts. but only one could get Locker leveled.

    this is all the trickle-down effect from bud adams, who hires coaches he likes instead of coaches that know how to win in today's league. as we know sometimes he even makes the coaches draft people they don't even want because he likes that player. hate to say it but this team won't progress until the owner bites the dust and the team goes to someone who understands the modern nfl.

    Titans/Oiler fans have been saying this for a long long time.

    Lucky for us, he can't live much longer.

    Love Mr. Adams for making the Tennessee Titans the Tennessee Titans, but if he thinks we're suppose to stand by and enjoy seeing him manipulate and fuq up our team, well I'll take him out myself.

    Their RB's run hard though, ours doesn't.
