Discussion in 'Tennessee Titans and NFL Talk' started by V-MAN, Apr 3, 2006.
From today's City Paper:
Bus isn't being quite the drama queen that he's being painted as...
I understand that... like I said, I'm not challenging you on that point. I'm just wondering how it seems to be such a widespread misconception...
in any case, right or wrong, it is a fine point, but I think it to be an important one... got to be an indicator of things to come.
I didn't think you were. I think a few people have jumped in to paint Cook as the bad guy without knowing the timeline of events...
People heard that Underwood informed Bus Cook and just assumed that means he knew well in advance of the incident.
Well, I take issue with him being locked out because l feel it was just a ploy. But for the sake of argument, let's assume that the Titans actually think McNair could have a season-ending injury by dropping a weight on his foot.
The timing of the thing and how it was handled is my main issue here as well. Bud just woke up and decided to lock out McNair? Everyone knew when the workouts were to start. Everyone knew the contract would not be reworked in time. Reese could have called Cook and McNair two weeks ago to say that the team had concerns and that McNair could spend more time in Mississippi if the contract was not completed. Sure, this would have gotten to the media but there would have been a level of respect there. The front office would not be taking the heat they are now either.
I actually think the Titans thought they'd get some leverage because McNair would not show up.
that settles that then. You should see Cook's poll numbers.
they are worse than the President's.:hmm:
People really don't like Cook right now.
I need to go find that "I thought it was a joke" quote...
left an entirely different impression all together.
Well... I wouldn't go that far... :ha:
Man, I'm struggling to find anyone who thinks that the Titans did was actually a GOOD move.
If you're looking in the media you're not going to find anyone. They took Bus' bait and ran with it.
Ask SK and Ewker.
