The Titans tried out a bevy of veteran guards yesterday, but none are expected to be signed unless there's a major injury issue. One of the more notable guys to workout was former Jaguar's guard Vince Manuwai, who is one of the league's more respected (and nastier) run blockers. Manuwai was cut before the year due to a sow-healing ankle injury and a hefty cap number. If there was anyone on the street the Titans should think long and hard about adding to the O-line mix, it's probably Manuwai.
Hey guess what, we've been really bad at playing football over the past two games:
Consider that in losses to Pittsburgh and Houston, Tennessee has:
- not forced a fumble, let alone recovered one
- intercepted one pass and recorded one sack
- completed just one pass for 20 yards or more
- not scored a first-half touchdown
Perhaps because he's rapidly running out of ways to say 'ineffective' in reference to Chris Johnson, David Climer breaks out the big guns and compares CJ to Vince Young. Pardon my rudeness, but this is a big fucking stretch with a headline that's probably just a stab at getting page views.
Not a single NFL team sent a representative to Terrell Owens' workout, but reviews of his workout by the analysts who have seen it aren't very cheery at all.
Peter Kings says last Sunday's Texans win was the biggest in the history of their franchise, which is pretty damned pathetic.
CJ sure as hell wouldn't win that race right now; that's a given.
