    I did not know that. 102.3 "talk monster" is our fm Titans Radio affililate...
    they don't pick up much of anything Titans Radio related. It's a shame cause I'd really like to listen cruisin' around Chatta-vegas.

    No...because of the hiring and interview process that is mandatory in the league, it can not be in his contract. That is exactly why he got such an enormous contract (the biggest in history for a coordinator, I think).
    It is Snyder's way of saying...."When Gibbs leaves, the job is yours. I can't legally put it in your contract, so I am going to give you a HUGE salary and a HUGE bonus if you are still here at the end of 2 years. This way you know I am either going to make you the headcoach, our pay out the wazuu. I just can't put it on paper."

    Your right. It is immaterial. He has the 2nd longest tenure in the NFL. As much as I like him and hope he stays, it is probably just a matter of time.

    To someone else's point.... I like John McClain, but he is the same one who said (when the news of Williams' new contract came out) how happy Williams and his family were with the Redskins and living outside of DC in Virginia, and that Snyder gave him the big contract to be the head coach in the future. He also basically had Fisher in Kansas City when all that was going on.

    McClain is entertaining, but ever since he started his media blitz campaign of how the Texans absolutely had to and WOULD take Vince Young for the first pick...I started to take what he says "with a grain of salt" as they say.
    It was like he was campaigning in the media and trying to stir up the Texans fans and market like the fans would riot in the streets if they don't pick Young. When they extended Carr's contract he backed off of that campaign pretty quickly.

    There's a shocker.

    I know you're kinda young, but you did know that the Titans used to be the Oilers, right? And that McClain covered the team for 20 years?
