Trying to make the best out of this.
There's been lots of buzz about Kenny Britt's return to the practice field, but I don't see how he makes it on the field Sunday. Britt has only done work with the scout team, though the fact that he worked in that role for two days straight is very encouraging for his long-term prognosis over the rest of the season. Still, he's got a ways to go, so I'd put his chances of playing at 5%... not impossible, but very unlikely.
Jason Jones and Tony Brown were back at practice yesterday, which is a huge boost for a D-line that becomes a blaring weakness without them. Brown took part in the full practice, but Jones only worked-out on a limited basis.
Despite embarrassing fights, a QB meltdown and a mountain of brutal penalties that kill our drives while extending the opponents', the Titans say they don't play out of control or lack in disciplined. You can say it all you want, but until you show us that's the case, it ain't the case.
Marques Douglas had an impressive first effort with the Titans last week against the Texans, where he tallied 7 tackles and was robbed of a sack (and probably a safety) by the ineptitude of the officials and the indecisiveness of the coaching staff. Douglas, a UDFA out of Howard University who has been a very good player at times during his 11 years in this league, seemed to play with a chip on his shoulder and flashed some of his glory days with the 49ers, Saints and Ravens.
Couldn't happen to a better guy.
