What do you want to bet that Rusty Smith does push-ups with his knees on the ground.
John Glennon updates us on a guy who hasn't gotten as much run this offseason as the other guys in his unit, but will play a big role again this season: Craig Stevens. The former 3rd round pick has developed into a premier blocking TE (in as much as that's still a valued position in today's NFL) and he's shown plenty of consistency and skills as a pass catcher mean he'll have a role in many of Chris Palmer's base formations.
Single game tickets for the 2012-2013 season will go on sale August 3rd. Tickets will start at $35, but that's a much better deal this year since they'll have the new high-capacity elevators up and running so fans sitting in the upper-deck no longer have to make that mile-long hike up the switchbacks.
David Boclair writes about how CJ's bad year most likely gave Munchak the cover he needed to shake-up the interior of our offensive line, and reduce our overall emphasis on the running game. I still contend that a lot of CJ's struggles last season are tough to separate from the horrendous play in front of him, but whatever it takes to drag this offense into the 21st century is just fine by me.
I see the new video boards going almost daily as I drive into downtown Nashville, and none of these images from the Tennessean really do them justice. These boards are MASSIVE. I'm hopeful they'll do the Code Blue like they did last year, because the light output from those screens will be exponentially higher than the pervious screens.
Terry McCormick Our boy Dan is encouraging the Titans to go ahead and re-sign a few guys who are coming into the last season of their rookie deals, including Jared Cook and Jason McCourty. The Titans have already been talking with McCourty's agent, but the front office seems to have much more of an apprehensive stance towards Cook. Of course, there's every chance in the world that Jared and his representation want to wait another to see if he can have a monster season, then spin that into a monster contract for one of the most athletic TEs in the league.
