Lane Kiffin says that the only reason he's being sued is because of what happened at UT, and keeps reiterating that Jeff Fisher isn't mad at him. Of course, when asked about it, Jeff Fisher called all of those comments 'absurd'. That's coach speak for 'Lane Kiffin is a flaming douchecanoe'. Fisher still sounds pretty hot over how the whole thing went down, but he also sounds like he feels the Titans are better off without Pola after it's all said and done.
How many lead singers sound the best they've ever sounded in their 60's? Well I can name one: Ozzy Osbourne. I'm not even a huge fan of his newer single Let Me Hear You Scream, but it's not a bad song (as always with Ozzy, he's got a fire guitar player... this one is a newcomer named Gus G.), and definitely worth checking out to hear how good a sober Ozzy can sound after decades of mumbling.
According to FO numbers (ESPN Insider article), the Titans' payroll is $119,741,100, which is 3rd in the division. They have the Colts spending $131,087,185, the Texans at $125,868,652 and the lowly Jags skimping by at $88,770,579. The Titans also have the least amount of dead money (money going to players who are no longer on the roster) at just $3,500.
Jump!John Glennon got some brief comments from Mike Reinfeldt on the situations of Tulloch (expected to be in camp on time), Keith Bulluck (NYG were a 'better fit'), Kevin Mawae (doesn't have a spot here barring injury) and David Thornton (waiting for the final medical meeting).
One more reminder that if you want single game tickets (prices range from $45 to $85) they go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m., and you'll need to get to the box office or a Ticketmaster outlet well before then. Getting the tix on line will be a complete crapshoot.
Big Albert is still fat, and still pissing off coaches... did he really think Shanahan wasn't going to ride him like a mule after all of the trash he talked in the offseason?
Have a great weekend!
