JJ Cooper torches The Tennessean's Gary Estwick for his accounting of the team's off-season progress.

Chris Hope recently held a fundraiser for Soul4Souls here in Nashville, which collects new and used shoes for distribution to those in need worldwide. Hope also donates $100 to the fund for every tackle he makes.
Speaking of Titans charity work, Jeff Fisher's annual softball game has been scheduled for June 20th at Greer Stadium. All proceeds go to Mercy Ministries, Soles4Souls, Catch-a-Dream, Nashville Children’s Alliance and various other local charities. This event is a star-studded affair and a great time if you're in the area.
As everyone knows Tony Kornheiser has left Monday Night Football and is being replaced by John Gruden. I think Tony K is a very talented guy who may go down as the worst color analyst ever. I'm hoping with Gruden in the mix the booth team will actually focus on the game, and not talk about themselves for 3 quarters if a close game. Here Jim Wyatt gives his two cents.
Mike Florio is 'reporting' (he's just following the Twitter page of some guy at the NFL Network) that the 2013 Super Bowl will most likely be awarded to New Orleans this afternoon.
