    CF reminds me of Jeremy Lin before he blew up. He's one of those players where, maybe nothing about them stands out physically at first glimpse, but when you watch them in practice/scrimmage, you just knew, this guy was a baller, and all he needs is a chance to get in the line up.

    Sounds like Griffin is thinking too much out there and almost afraid of laying a hit on someone. Or maybe it's just his way of justifying his "inability" to lay someone out!?

    Remember on draft night, Griffin was at home watching and when his name was called, he showed literally no emotion and looked bored as f**k, didn't even want to stand up when his family and friends were all going crazy and so happy for him. lol

    So it's 1 big hit for every 5 missed tackles? 1:5 ratio.. not bad. :clap:

    Griffin's problem is a lack of testosterone.

    I said from day one he seemed effeminate. Think he's just a thoftie.

    And i don't care if he's gay. Except for the fact that he's the only homosexual that doesn't want to drill dudes.

    Griff is acting like there's only two options, either blow the guy up with a helmet to helmet hit or just move out of the way. How about just make a simple tackle. I'm not asking him to knock people out (which would be nice), I just want him to not blow coverages and to make simple tackles. He can't even do the little things right. He's constantly out of position and avoiding contact. If someone is coming at him straight on he leans to one side and sticks his arms out. The only time he ever makes a tackle is when someone else has already slowed the ball carrier down or when they're already falling down. He's gotten trucked one too many times, so he doesn't even try anymore. I think he's soft, scared, and has no passion for the game anymore. If the titans weren't stupid enough to sign him to a big deal, he'd be at home with his dogs right now. That's his true passion. Not football.

    Against the Lions in the 4th quarter on their second to last drive, Hill soft-tossed a ball to Megatron on the hash with a perfect blow up opportunity for Griffin, instead he put his hands out and still whiffs. Like Duece said, he's just effiminate and soft. I can't believe we paid this guy. I would much rather have McCourty playing FS and Finny at Corner or vice versa.

    And our defensive staff really thought he could play SS? Guy is soft and cannot cover any TE in the nfl. He is one of the biggest reasons the titans are giving up the most yardage and points to TE in nfl
