    I have no idea how you inferred that from my post.


    So you think "knock-out" blocks verse Pac10 d-linemen are equal to "knock-out" blocks verse SEC d-linemen? I mean, is it ok to point out that those awesome blocks weren't against many future NFL d-lineman? There were 4 players drafted this season from the Pac10. 2 Players from USC, both first round picks. A third rounder from UCLA and a seventh from Arizona. I'm just pointing out that this awesome blocker competed against defenses that were weak against his strength.

    I'm hopeful he becomes a good player for the Titans. But I think people comparing him to Witten, one of the top5 or so TEs in the game right now, have pretty high expectations for Stevens.



    Regardless, I think Crumpler will have the biggest impact at TE on our roster this year.

    Ozzie Newsome is a hell of a GM it's not a bad thing to be as "dumb" as him.

    Stevens is the best blocking TE already on the team and will develop into a good catching TE because of his hand size and the fact Cal never used him. So we don't actually know how well he can catch.

    Sorry, I cant take the guy that thought steve mcnair would be their savior seriously.The Ravens are known as an old team with old talent. So maybe he was a good GM at one point, but not within the last decade (almost).

    i disagree.

    just look at their first round picks.

    96 jon ogden, ray lewis
    97 peter boulware
    98 duane starks
    99 chris mcalister
    00 jamal lewis
    01 todd heap
    02 ed reed
    03 terrell suggs
    05 mark clayton
    06 haloti ngata
    07 ben grubbs

    if we drafted like that people would be screaming "greatest GM ever!"

    Crap I accidently deleted the rest of the post. Okay let me retry. Stevens has the ability to be a great catching TE. He has the attributes and intangibles to do so. Since Cal never utilized him we don't know how well he can play until a game situation, like I've read about comparisons of Witten. He could be a great dual, TE recieving and blocking, since he's already a great blocker. If he works at recieving then he could be a future starter. Better?

    Exactly like I said. Those guys were drafted close to 10 years ago. (the good ones at least)

    what is your definition of "good"?

    ed reed is a premier safety in the nfl. terrell suggs has 45 sacks in five years(kearse had 47.5). haloti ngata is a great run stuffing nose guard. it's too early to call grubbs a success, but he has played well thus far.

    the only disappointment since 2000 is mark clayton.
