No Oilers or Titans team has ever started out 4-0. In a related note, I think we may see history Sunday afternoon, especially is Peterson's hamstring doesn't heal.
Reinforcing my last point, thanks to Gary Estwick:
... the Titans lead the NFL in red zone scoring, the Minnesota Vikings - their opponent Sunday at LP Field - ranks last in the league in that category (before Monday night's game).
I called Merril Hoge a lot of cruel names here and on other sites yesterday. This morning I still stand by every one of them, and only wish I'd have said more:
Hoge also said Fisher told him he was going to threaten to use the Texas offense if the Titans picked Young "because he has no chance to run an NFL offense.’’ But on Monday Hoge said he was the one who told Fisher he should run the Texas offense if the Titans picked him...
"Whatever he reported that I disclosed with him is incorrect,’’ Fisher said earlier Monday. "He implied, or stated, that Vince (also) takes a limo to work every day and lives three miles away from the facility. That is so far out of line. He doesn’t do that; we all know he doesn’t do that. So if you are going to start there, I think it discredits everything. He accused me of saying a lot of things that I never said.’’
Just let that sink in... just for one second. If Mary Hoge isn't fired soon, then ESPN should be beyond ashamed of themselves (I'm sure the ombudsman will let them know that as well).
Cortland Finnegan has as many picks in 3 games as a certain former Titans CB had in his 2 years of non-suspended service. How awesome is that cheap 4 year extension the Titans locked him up to before the season looking now?!
Paul Kuharsky notes that the Titans offensive line is made of big mean men who will probably lead to a few opposing defensive guys being fired or benched over the course of the season once their coach reviews the game tape.
Keith Bulluck keeps it classy with his 3rd annual wine tasting/benefit at Gulch hot-spot Sambuca on Monday October 20th. He's got an impressive list of players joining as well... I'd pay $80 to sip vino with the Boom King (Vanden Bosch), VY, the Freak and big Albert any day.
Chris 'Crazy Legs' Johnson and LenDale are on their way to meeting White's goal of becoming the league's premier 1-2 punch.
Pro Football Weekly ran a blind item in their blind item wrap-up section called 'Whispers' saying that Crazy Legs may start getting a majority of the carries soon.
