    SUMMARY: The Titans have begun studying various option formations, with the intent of making some a limited part of their playbook this season for their first-round pick, QB Vince Young. No NFL team is thought to have used the option for about 20 years, since around the time Young was born. But this could be about to change. The Titans may be planning on installing a "Vince Young Package," one that would include the option and force opposing defenses to have to prepare for more than just Tennesee's basic offensive attack. What Titans coaches will have to wrestle with is their desire to keep Young on the bench and season him. Using him to run the offense would expose him to NFL defenses sooner than the organization would like.

    the story is incorrect when it says the option has not been used in the nfl for about twenty years. I vividly remember us (the oilers) running it out of the run and shoot offense.....*smiles broadly*

    Oh, you know it, brother. It really feels like we've turned a very good corner, even with the Steve situation still up in the air.

    I can't wait until teams fear to play us again.

    You and me both.



    LDW - OROY - I wish they wouldn't print stuff like that. Makes me feel a little jinxed. Well, not me personally, but LenDale. Honestly, I hope Brown gets the yards, and LenDale gets the touchdowns that Brown doesn't get from "homeruns."

  10. thats a big reason that they got him for now, because he doesnt have the break away speed that brown or someone like that has, but he sure can pound the ball in there
