    i like LW alot................but he needs to get serious about his job................as for other guys..............I hear Greg Ellis and Shaun Ellis may be shown the door in 07..............both guys are DE that are best suited in a 4-3 but are being asked to play OLB...............in a 3-4...................they could be causualties.

    Looks may be deceptive but LW will need to have a monster off season if he's to become anything close to an RB who can take the load. I don't think he shown yet he can be durable which means the Titans have to sign Henry or Brown or look for a reliable third-down RB.

    He went 3 years in USC without any big injuries. I think if we can drool over Adrian Peterson, who has had at leaste two major injuries in his time at OU, then we shouldn't be worrying about LenDale's durability. We should get that out of the way this year and just set a game aside where he can "be the man".

    Why isn't "Give Avvie a loan" on that list?

    He also didn't take the load at USC. Since being drafted with the hammy, he's had various smaller issues in camp and during the season (ankle) that has limited him. Just looking at him, I'm not convinced he is physically able to take the punishment of 25+ carries a game.

    And I am not among those who would risk Peterson with an early first.

    The only way to find out is to try him for a game. I don't know what you mean by his physical looks, he seems to be at a comfortable weight. And he even surprised me with his bursts of speed when he got the touch.

    because hill is still young... we have a few young guys with talent. corners dont always just take off in this league. and you can usually help a corner a little without giving too much else on the defense.

    really i guess its matter of opinion of what our biggest need is.

    some think corner
    some think WR
    some think safety
    some think d-line

    i would rather have a probowler at any of those instead of a corner
    probowl DE gets pressure on the QB... allowing a bad corner to look better.
    a great safety that can cover alot of space can make up for a lower level corner a bit.
    and a great WR could open up our offense like we havent seen since the 80's

    and who's gonna start opposite Hill ?
    seriously ... we need 2 .... not just one

    unless the boy makes a DRASTIC change in behavior, I would bet against Adam Jones being a Titan in '08

    well maybe.. but pac's here for now. you dont go out to find his replacement before we decide if he's still here. if he's gone in 08... then we have next years draft and free agency to replace him.
