    I like Zach Brown but I remember the year he was taken someone on here was pounding the table for Levonte David and posted a clip of him. When I watched it the difference between him and Brown was striking. While Brown has improved David is still the better player and sometimes I wonder what if...

    Step one: Ask yourself How many games did we win last year?
    Step two: Ask yourself if the LBs were as good as some of them make you out to be.
    Step three: never abandon hope as a titans fan, just keep saying after we get rid of CJ and Munch things will all be fine in the world.

    We have been burned by TEs for years...have yet to bring in a LB that could cover even the backup TEs. Now...it could also be due to poor coaching and defensive schemes....but, I am guessing talent has played a role.

    Brown was supposed to be that guy. Let's see if Gooden can do it. I will say this, it's not common to have 2 Lbs that run 4.4 or under so if you as a team can't figure out how to use them to stop TE's that normally run in the 4.6's, that's a reflection on your coaching.

    The coaches this season have ruined our LB core. I don't get the love they have for Fokou who never comes off the field it seem and when McCarthy played he was as good or better. They also blitz Fokou more than they blitz Brown or Ayers which makes no sense. If one LB regressed it makes sense to put the blame on that one guy for attitude, work ethic or something. But when the whole LB group under performs what can it be but coaching? Ayers was a solid player and Brown looked like he was going o be a pro-bowl type guy and in one season both those guy look pedestrian?

    but what if there wasn't a d lineman ranked high enough to draft there. if you reach for semi needs that's how you kill a draft
