    The Tennessee Titans offense ranks #1 in money spent in the NFL ($81,925,784) but rank 26th in total offense.

    The Eagles come in 2nd with $81,681,176 spent on offense, but they rank a respectable 15th overall.

    I'm not sure this means much, but it's got me believing we're going defense with our 1st pick this draft.

    Definitely defense. No question about it.

    Respectable 15 overall? Is this before or after free agency?

    This is after, so it's not a perfect science.

    Well, I think that our offense is going to be much improved this year. I don't think we got any marque players, but what we did get were several all around very good starter. Our team is going to be much improved as long as all of our free agents dont get IR during pre season. Would be just our luck.

    just goes to prove that spending a lot of money doesn't equal success

    I'd say that makes it pretty ****ing inaccurate, to be honest. We dished out a lot of guaranteed money this offseason, with most of it going to Levitre and Walker.

    Uh, we have not yet seen the results of our offseason spending. I anticipate a much improved team and a decent winning record. I do not think that it is unreasonable to hope for playoffs.

    Who was the last defensive player we took in the first round? Griffin right? No it was Morgan! Thats bad success right there!

    No we were still really high, I mean right now we spend the most on offense, prior to FA we were 3rd
