    I am sure that most of you saw that Jonathan Cooper broke his leg, and most likely, his season is over. I hate to see this happen to any player, and I wish him a speedy recovery. I know that the Titans were interested in him as well and man did we apparently dodge a bullet. It got me thinking about Warmack, and praying that he stays healthy. Do you guys think we have the depth to keep this run game going if somehow Warmack goes down? I would HATE to see us lose this running game. Thoughts?

    I don't see how we dodged a bullet..

    Warmack may have had his leg broke as well if he were in the situation Cooper was in.

    I think our run game will be fine even if he goes down. Our offensive line has improved in more areas than just his guard position.

    You need to look up individuation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Individuation

    Cooper was not destined to break his leg. A random series of events led to it.

    Lets not read too much into it. All I am saying is that it would suck to lose our 1st rd draft pick/guard Warmack. I do think he is a presence and losing someone with that type of ability and potential with high hopes just plain sucks. It just got me thinking about the depth on our line and the fact that we haven't had any season ending or major injuries thankfully. Thanks for the school lesson Hammer. lol

    It is good. And our depth on the interior OL is actually pretty good. It is OT I am more worried about. And FS. We have nothing backing up FS.

    Yea tough break for Cooper and the Cardinals. Better them than us though.

    Titan fans know their pain. Losing Kenny for 2011 sucked.

    I agree. I was thrilled to see how serious the Titans took upgrading the O-Line this offseason! They not only brought in new starters, but also ensured quality depth as well.

    Yeah. I was really happy to see them beef up the line this year. It was both important for CJ and the running game, as well as for Locker. Now the Defense can be improved this next offseason hopefully. I think Warmack is going to fit in great!

    Yeah Hammer. We are terrible at OT/FS depth...God help us if someone goes down.

    Sucks for Arizona. But we have WARmack. Guy is going to be a beast for years to come. Have you actually watched his play on the O line? I took the time and watched just him and no one else on game film. He's gonna be alright. Also did the same with Schwenke...guy is good (although it was against 2nd and 3rd stringers.)
