    SUMMARY: "We're going to get back to old-school football and run it," said Titans Coach Jeff Fisher. "That's our intention, that's our desire, and that's where the work has been emphasized this offseason. As far as who does it? Well, we have some great options right now. We will not have a shortage of running backs by no means."

    Rookie RB LenDale White said, "When I was brought in, the first thing Coach Fisher said to me was, 'We have a commitment to running the football, and we're getting back to that.' We have a number of backs, and it is going to fun to see what we can do. All of the guys here have carried the load at some time or another. I guess if we can all come together as a group it is going to be a lot of fun."

    IMO the running game is the key to the season it opens the passing game by changing coverages and slowing the pass rush. Eating the clock tires defenses, keeps our D fresh and prevents the other teams O from getting any kind of rhythm. We have heard a lot about our running backs but the key is not CB,TH,and LW its the Oline, they have to be much improved and with no tackle with more than 2yrs experience Munch will have to do his best coaching job ever. I'm glad we have the commitment I question the talent to make it happen.

    Fisher is old-school and believes in running the ball, not making turnovers, controlling the clock, getting field position with the kicking game, and winning the game with defense. I think that at least in part, he'd rather lose 10-7 than win 49-47 in a shootout.

    It reminds me of the time Alabama beat Ole Miss and Archie Manning 33-31, or something like that, and Bear Bryant asked the Ole Miss coach afterwards, "Wasn't that the worst game you ever saw?"

    Chris Brown and Lendale White....White being the short yardage bruiser and Chris Brown being the Speed back who makes the big plays. You notice that Lendale kinda runs like he's bow legged or something like his legs kick outward when he runs...
