    By crikey, I'm really enthused for this pick-up. I didn't see it coming, but hey, I don't follow FA as much as I should. This is exactly the kind of pickup Tennessee were looking for; I can see some serious production coming from this.

    Additionally, it's always nice to hear that a player (especially a class-act like Thornton) was so impressed with the coaching staff that he changed his plans entirely to sign.

    Thornton in Titans blue... sounds damn good to me.

    I always rated Thornton over June. He will be huge for us, the great Gundini has spoken.

    Stretch James Left, Stretch James Right, have Gomer pitch to the Weenie for a 7 yard hook. Rinse and repeat.


    Wait something is missing:))

    Just no 'Edge' to that offense....I guess Thornton isnt any use for that.

    Though I can't wait for him to lay out Starvin' Marvin on a nice crossing route....wait, he don't run those does he?

    That cartoon dude reminds me of Marvins eyes that time he made the incredible one handed catch against the titans. Yes, that was sweet. "WHAT A CIRCUS CATCH" per Bob Lamey.:ha:

    he was probably crappin' his dacks after seeing Tank or someone coming at him and he dived out the way.

    Class. Just can't come into the forum and talk without the smack? You do know there is a forum just for smack?

    Oh well, looks like Colts are overdue for, and in need of, some humble pie.

    Congrats on getting Thornton. I really don't have anything negative to say about him. He was overshadowed this year by Brackett and June, but those two had so many "wow" type plays, that people forgot that Thornton was solid on every down. He can play both outside linebacker positions equally well and he's a leader with character. You guys may not notice him for the first few weeks and then all of the sudden, you'll be looking at stats, and he'll have lead your team in tackles in most games. He's a quiet killer.

    I have always maintained that Thornton was the best LB you guys had.

    What is going on with June and Brackett anyway? Gonna resign them? Free the space by trading choke boy and starting Sorgi? :winker:

    BTW, it kills me to see a Colt uniform in my sig, but gotta support the new guys.
