    I love the way that no one has mentioned our offensive line woes. I voted yes but I think it would be a cold day in hell before he came. That o line gets healthy men broke much less one who has known neck issues.

    Umm I mentioned it.

    And I said all season that even with Peyton we wouldn't have made it past 6-10... Because our OL is THAT bad.

    My fault must've overlooked it. Well then: I love how Ravens is the only one that has mentioned that the line is terrible.
    As much as I would love to have him I would hate to think our line was a cause of paralysis for him.

    He is going to be 39 next season. He shocked people when he went to Denver and played better than he ever has before. At some point, he will not have it anymore. I'd imagine it would be relatively soon.

    Truthfully, I'm more optomistic than most and can see how to get there, it's just that the Titans meander down a different path and get lost...and fall down...a lot!

    Sign Peyton to say a $15mil cap hit.
    Sign Roos to play RT (cut Oher) for a $3mil cap hit (we'll pay him more but spread it out and give him future guarantees...blah blah blah)
    Sign Dez Bryant or Demaryius Thomas for a $10mil cap hit this year.
    Sign Justin Houston for a $11mil cap hit.
    Sign Iupati for a $7.5mil cap hit.
    Sign Devin McCourty for a $7.5mil cap hit.

    With no trades and without much thought, let's say we drafted...
    1 DL Leonard Williams
    2 CB PJ Williams
    3 ILB Eric Kendricks
    4 TE Nick O'Leary
    4 WR Phillip Dorsett
    5 OLB Tony Washington
    6 FB Fowler
    6 RT Havenstein

    And our 2 years away roster would look like this.

    QB Manning, Mettenberger
    RB Sankey, McCluster, Andrews
    WR Dez, KW, Hunter, Dorsett, McCluster, Hagan
    TE Walker, O'Leary, TT
    FB Fowler
    LT Lewan
    LG Iupati
    OC Schwenke
    RG Warmack
    RT Roos

    DE Casey, Klug
    NT SLH, Woods
    DE Williams, Jones, Martin
    ROLB Houston, Washington
    ILB Kendricks, Brown
    ILB Williamson, Brown
    LOLB Morgan, Washington
    CB McCourty, BRW
    CB PJ Williams, BRW
    NB Sensabaugh/BRW, Harris
    FS McCourty, Huff
    SS Pollard, Stafford

    Special Teams the same.

    So let's see, Peyton can run the ball behind a good OL and their will be no loafing with Manning running the show. He'll have plenty of weapons to go to a double TE set featuring Walker and O'Leary or go with 3-4 WR sets featuring Dez, KW, McCluster and co. Can you say dynamic offense? I can!!!

    And our D would be about as good as it gets. With Casey and LW flanking SLH, we should be a lot more stout up front as well as on the outside with Morgan and Houston keeping people from getting outside. But should a crease appear, Kendricks and Williamson will be there to take out the garbage!!! And even in our base set now we can bring the heat with just 4 (Casey, SLH, LW, and Houston). Not only will we have more pressure, but a lot better coverage too with Williams opposite McCourty and the Pro Bowl McCourty roaming the middle. Better coverage AND better pressure = vastly improved defense! And with a dynamic offense keeping them fresh, rested, and off the field...can you say playoffs? I can!!!

    2 year plan? Nah! Here's a 6-month plan!

    Now where did I put Webster's fax #...
