    Guys better enjoy how you're feeling this week, maybe even take a picture to capture the moment, cause once September rolls in, we're back to not being talked about.

    I'm loving turning on the TV and seeing them cover the Titans, makes you feel like you did something.

    I just wanted to get that in before we slow down in free agency and every other teams catches up to us headline wise.

    We've been killing it this week!

    Hey JC, I feel the same way. I think what we need now is a DE like maybe OSI, possibly a WR, and then a real good CB (still many available). Then
    I think our free agency time will be complete. Do you suppose the FO waits a while to start signing other players? Make them wait and sweat a bit? That way they can get them cheaper? Your thoughts.

    We could end up having up to 10 draft picks this April, so I tend to think we're done with free agents for the most part. It takes about $7M to sign your rookies these days and we barley have that right now.

    Any new key players for us would come from the early draft picks we have IMO.

    That WR, CB and DE fans are hoping for probably is still too expensive for us at this time. If we do add any other FA's they'll be ok players in their mid 20's

    I actually rather just go back off the map. Since we've been making these signings these outside "analysts" think they know this team and some of them couldn't be more wrong. They should just stick to the big market teams and continue to over hype them every year.

    Now I do like being on TV of course but I mean seriously some of these guys don't have a clue.

    We've gotten tons of coverage over recent years --- Haynesworth, Pacman, Vince, Fisher, CJ, Kenny Britt. We were on PTI every day for months during the VY/Fisher collapse season.

    We still have guys on the team to release which can free up more cap space....Amano anyone?? Hawkins can go if we get a WR or they might try and trade Washington as well. Once the need is met, we can release the dead weight.

    As for the remaining needs, I do agree that we are waiting to see the interest of specific players. I believe we will sign a WR but DE, DB etc may wait until the Draft. Or right before, those left over DBs that don't land teams will be A LOT cheaper a month from now.

    Thanks for the info. I've only been a Titans fan for about 14 years so I had no idea how it worked.

    If we get good I think we will be talked about more. Look at the past couple years where teams got good and actually got talked about. Bengals, Seahawks, Texans, and Redskins. No one wants to hear about small market teams that suck. I really hope we get good so we have more than 30 sec on NFL 32 and NFL network. I think I went 3 months watching Total Access every day without more than a 30 sec on the Titans.
