    SUMMARY: Ryan Fowler continues to rehab a shoulder he tore up last season but it may never be 100%. "As far as getting my shoulder 100 percent, I'm not sure it will ever be 100 percent totally," said Fowler. "But it's as effective as I need it to be already. We only have helmets on. There's not a lot of contact. I can do everything that practice calls for right now. We all have to play with things that hurt all the time. Right now I could definitely play. That wouldn't be an issue." Fowler had a reasonably productive first season in the eyes of his coaches. He averaged more than five tackles a game but had few big plays. Coach Jeff Fisher says the position is Fowlers when he returns healthy.

    Nah. We don't use the MLB much on passing downs. Tulloch would start if Bulluck or Thornton got hurt.

    Tulloch looked last year he'd be a good starter. He replaced Fowler nicely, they both had the same production so why risk a worse injury on Fowler?

    I honestly thought Fowler got cut, or we only had him signed for last year. Doesn't really matter to me, as been stated above, Tulloch is better. IMO

    Seriously, what the **** did Tulloch do to piss off the coaching staff this much.

    I mean, the job IS Fowler's when he returns?? Another case of Fisher's favorites.

    I'd like to see at least the "competition" again, if you can call it that.


    Bleh, it's not that fowler is that bad, but tulloch has looked really good in games. To read this it sounds as if Fowler is the guaranteed starter which irks me.
