    not many here wanted too see CF leave.

    most think the FO blew it paying 'la Vagician' and JMcC instead of CF

    CF was without doubt one of my favorite current/recent Titans

    That's all Finnegan really was in TN, a fan favorite. His play didn't justify a huge pay day. And he's also not a no nonsense kinda guy like Munchak wants, Finnegan is all nonsense LOL.

    CF was a round 7 who made good. Every fan identifies with that guy.

    I was at the Predators game shortly after the draft and all the picks were introduced between periods. I remember telling my brother that CF looked like a football player. Just had a swagger.

    CF was effentive if not a true shut down CB

    People give grief about turnover numbers.. he wasn't targeted as much as other corners. And he wasn't even supposed to be a corner. He was always put on their best WR too. Dependable, and actually knocked the living **** out of people.. no one on this team currently can say that.

    It's all about attitude. Griffin comes off as a guy who isn't interested in forcing his will on anyone. Part of that, I chalk up to coaching. The schemes have been extremely conservative and shows little faith in the players, IMO.

    He should be the leader on defense and leading by example. I see no leadership there and it's probably best as long as he's not playing with the heart that's needed. I don't remember him being this way as a rookie.

    They will play to stop the run this Sunday and force Ponder to beat them. If the safeties are playing 25 yards off the LOS, I will lose my mind.

    The over/under on Griffin biting on play-action is 4.

    We call plays as if were scared to give up the big play. I have no problem having everyone on man coverage and then the rest blitzing. Hell it cant get any worse than having the safeties back there anyways!

    You'll catch Griffin stick it to a guy here and there, nowhere near enough though to be getting paid what he gets.
