Here we are again, another Friday, another mailbag. And for those of us in the Titans' immediate market, the possibility of the sky falling. Send your mail on anything you want to BurgundyFanMail@gmail.com.
Who do you think is right, La Canfora or Schefter? I really want the Titans to keep Finnegan so I hope La Confora is right.
Can I say that I miss Schefter on NFLN? Having him AND Mayock made them perhaps the most respectable sports network (let's just forget that Jamie Dukes exists...) with their top news guy and draft guru. I have to believe that Schefter is correct on this, the Titans have made it pretty clear without actually saying anything that they are not going to take Finny and by all appearances it seems they're willing to let him walk. Unfortunately for us fans, this means we will not be able to see the "Rumble That A Douchebag Starts And Gets Away With A Clean Reputation, Part II" since he likely is heading to Dallas or Detroit. Wait, do either of those teams play Houston next year? Maybe there is hope after all!
Do you still think Mark Barron is the best pick for the Titans at 20? He's got the hernia thing and didn't work out at the Combine.
Let's go ahead and just say that the Combine has become waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too hyped of an event. There are aspects of it that are important to the draft, but those are the things we don't get to watch on NFLN (that being the medical checks and the team interviews...how awesome would it be to have a camera in team interviews? I imagine it being something like on Law & Order, could totally see "The Hoodie" standing in the dark corner grilling a prospect). A lot of the rest of it has been hyped up for some reason, mainly to give NFLN something else to broadcast I think, and to give draftniks another thing to nitpick about prospects. Anyways, I digress...Barron's hernia from what I understand should not be a recurring thing so that alone shouldn't mean avoid him. If he has a good pro day I bet he is still a Top 20 pick. As far as my opinion, I believe now (before free agency) that the TItans are going to go DL in the first round.
Do you have any advice for talking to girls? There's this really cute one at the bar I go to, but I'm just too nervous to talk to her.
Unfortunately, Mr. Pratt, there may be little hope for you. You could try Sex Panther cologne, or take up jazz flute lessons and try again in ten years with this girl once you have become a master. Or you could use the old standby of a ticket to the gun show. But as I said, I fear there may be little hope for you.
I'm thinking of changing my name because the Jets fans I talk to are confused by the "Titans" in my name. What should my new name be?
Winny, Winny, Winny...you need to educate your Canadians on AMERICAN football, and then you will no longer need to change your name. I mean, it seems like we've got half the country on here as it is, so it really shouldn't be that difficult for them to know who the Titans are. Something generic will take away from your...Canadianess? And our ability to call you "WTF" when needed...we can't lose that!
Where is one place you want to travel to that you have never been?
Why on earth would I ever want to leave "The Whale's Vagina"? But, if you must make me choose...Mt. Everest, so I could shout from the mountaintop about this lovely lady that I am seeing...
