wel probably draft a rb to back him up
Interesting take. First of all We need a backup for White because the assumption is White will get his chance. We have no one to back White up and he hasn't exactly been Eddie George so far avoiding injury. Duckett would be a solid backup IMO. We don't need a pro-bowl guys to be able to step in and take a few carries. We do need someone who can be reliable and isn't still in diapers.
Secondly, even if Jones does "step up" we have virtually nothing to go with him. He just became our #1 WR by default just like White became our #1 RB. Neither of those guys has really proven they can be the best WR and RB on a team and do well enough for the team to win. I'm not sure Jones is capable of being the next Chad Johnson but even if he was we would still have some serious work to do to upgrade the rest of our WRs.
Thirdly, where does this Long/Mehelona comment come from. I'll assume you ended the post with a joke, at least I hope that was your intent.
duckett is not what we need, thats why we didnt even talk to him or his agent.
???? Was Gage a 1st round pick? How has he underachieved?
well he hasnt achieved.
What is it we need then? Ron dayne, labrandon toefield? I like toefield but the titans don't seem to be making much effort to get him. Did we make much of an effort to get anthony thomas? If reese was still here he would have gobbled up one of those guys by now..
Don't fret about the backup RB spot. I guarantee a player of the caliber of Dayne/Toefield/Duckett will get released before or during TC. It isn't hard for a RB to pick up the system.
Also this yr in the 3rd rnd you will see some great value at RB because the need is so low. I guarantee that we will have a shot at one of these RBs Kenny Irons, Jackson, Booker, Hunt, Henry or Leonard. Any of those guys will be as good as Toefield/Dayne/Duckett.
What is with the Duckett love? The guy has been a huge underachiever.
If anything, the Titans need another style back from White and can do a lot better than Duckett. IMO, Brown would be a better option.
Though I agree Jones needs some help, unless you are ready to write off Roby, Williams and Orr, why not give them the opportunity? They were fairly productive in '05 and Young won't be a top 10 passer if we had Chad Johnson on the roster.
I don't understand the mentality that you draft players you feel have talent, work two seasons to coach them up and improve their game only to never give them the opportunity. If the Titans return to become a top team in this league, it'll be because their draft picks are the core of their team.
Again, you ready to call Mahelona a bust after one season? You know how good Long will be?
I'm all for upgrading any position we can with quality players with upside. To waste money and experience someone with talent on our team could be getting by overpaying a mediocre vet is short-sighted, IMO.
cBrown > TJ
Dude... Chris Brown is not better that TitanJeff :ha:
