    Would you rather have McNair? I would.

    Noone. Thats just the price for maintaining a Superbowl/playoff team for several years.

    This won't come out the way I really mean it.. but one superbowl appearance 6 years ago isn't a good enough excuse for paying your QB 27 mill. I'm not an employee of the Titans so I only know what I read during the offseason. But from what I read it doesn't seem like the Titans tried very hard to come to a new agreement with McNair. Comments?

    Much of that $27 Megabuck figure is pro-rated signing bonus and such.
    It was a "cap hit" of $27 million.

    The final score may not reflect it, but the Titans actually made a LOT of big plays last week....on both sides of ball.

    • Pacman's punt return. Sure, it was called back, but Pac made a play when the team desperately needed it....the sign of a true playmaker.
    • Scaife's TD catch....highlight reel stuff.
    • Drew Bennett's 36-yard reception early in the game....gave the offense a badly needed boost of energy.
    • Ben Troupe's 32 yard catch-and-run to put the Titans in scoring range
    • Cortland Finnegan had a big sack and recovered a fumbled punt.
    • Calvin Lowry forced that fumbled punt, and had a HUGE hit on another punt return...absolutely decked the guy
    • Keith Bulluck's sack and forced fumble against Culpepper

    Unfortunately, the team made several big mistakes to offset these big plays, and allowed the Dolphins to make several big plays of their own...together, these eventually cost us the game.

    But the silver lining is undeniable....the Titans made their share of big plays, which we haven't seen in a long, long time. All they gotta do is keep that big-play mindset, while finding a way to eliminate the mistakes and prevent opponents from making plays. Easier said than done, I know....but as soon as they find a way to accomplish this, the Titans will be a very dangerous team, indeed.
