2009 Points of Concern

It's been quite awhile since my last fanpost and I just wanted to say hello to the old school members of the site and tell Jimmy and August  that you guys have done a great job getting this community to where it is today.  

 

That being said - I'd love to get some input from the true fans I have heard speak over the years and get some intel from people who actually pay attention.  In this initial post I just want to bring up my two biggest concerns.  

#1 for me - Nick Harper ....  this is going to be the achilles heal of our defense all year long - mark my words.  Keep this in mind - only 3 players on the entire roster are older than Harper... Kerry Collins, Kevin Mawae, and Craig Hentrich ... It's one thing to be the grey beard quarterback who makes smart decisions ... its whole new ball game when you have to make  precision cuts and keep up with 4.4 speed.  Not to mention the fact that Harper's bone spurs have not only held him out of important games, but certainly will not get any better with time.  The first preseason games coverage on T.O.  ... need I say more - pretty sure he was on the ground both receptions.  This is going to be something I hope the coaching staff has discussed at lengths because we are going to need help in this spot.  I have seen some upside in Mouton, still a rookie. .. but as far as Faggins and McCourty are concerned - well lets just say who saw Brady Quinn and Anderson look like HOF'ers.... Dare I say I wish we still had Pac?  .... if you read that Bullock interview did you see where he was asked who the most athletic player he knew was ??? Definitely caught my attention ... Bringing me to ...

#2 Keith Bulluck's contract - how many times can us Titans fans have our hearts broken?  I understand it is a business.  I understand that Keith is going to want enough years to where we will inevitably be paying him superstar dollars in declining years ... but this is our rock.  If you read Kuharsky's article I'm sure you are familiar with who we have lost over the years ... but let's face it ... Keith is the leader both vocally and on the field.  I honestly don't think that we have anyone even close to being ready to fill in his shoes yet.  It is imperative that we resign Keith before this turns into an Albert at the pro-bowl type of situation where Redskins execs wine and dine the big dollars ... but only guarantee a few more million than we offer originally.  I do not want it to get in the way of the season by any means ... but I would much prefer to nip this thing now before the season is over with a first round loss to the Chargers  ...  I mean Super bowl victory.  SIGN KEITH!  NOW!

 

Hope to hear what you guys think about these two issues and everyone is as excited for this season as I am.

On a different note - I left NYC a few months ago where we had a great Titans meetup group at a place called SIDEBAR ... I now live in Chicago and am looking for some fans to watch the games with .. if anyone is interested please let me know. This year is here!

 

Go Titans!
