    The problem isn't Bulluck; it's no secret that he's a coverage LB and is more similar to Derrick Brooks than anyone on your list. Your criticism should be directed to players like Sirmon, Boiman, and Kassell who simpily don't have the speed or athetism to be even starting LBs.

    A big hit LB is not always the best LB. We have many problems on this defense; Bulluck is not one of them. :sad2:

    Well Said. Bulluck isn't the problem. He is what he is, which is a solid football player. However, we do need an inforcer either at S or LB or both. I too would like to see us Land Hawk. At the 3rd pick though I don't think it will happen. If Vince would have stayed in school maybe. One thing is for certain the titans either through the draft or through free agency need to add a couple of playmakers on D.

    Say the part about BUlluck not being the problem one more time. :))

    I am also on the side of fence that believes that PacMans off season issues, attitude and penalties are the not the problem as well. Granted he needs to get control of his actions. But if PacMan was a model citizen. The same could be said about him. He was a just a solid rookie football player.

    We still would have lost atleast 12 games.

    Pacman isnt the problem, he is just painful with his penalties and issues.

    But he may have split the team with his actions.

    You'd have thought he would fit in perfectly with the wife beaters, flashers and drunk drivers... :banned:

    The biggest difference in Zack Thomas and Kassel is Zack is a heck of a MLB and Kassel stinks.

    I disagree. Kassell doesn't stink at plugging the a-gaps, but don't expect him to make plays outside the tackles or in coverage.

    I haven't looked at tape to verify it, but I wouldn't be surprised if most runs on our defence were outside or off-tackle plays.

    Basicly, Kassell is good so long as the RB runs directly at him...

  10. whatever

    whatever Guest

    And Bulluck is good as long as the RB runs away from him.
