Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Maybe The Crowd Was Just Chanting 'Freebird' Edition

New, comments

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Der Commish was in the box with Bud Adams, and later on in the stands, at Sunday's game.  I guess we're to assume that Goodell wasn't in the box when Bud let this double eagle salute fly.  You can already hear the fun police coming down on Bud, but I personally thought it was pretty funny (as long as it stays an aberration).  I'm sure he'll be fined, and I'm sure he'll never miss the money.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young's approach, mechanics and body language are a complete revelation this year and truly fun to watch.  Combine that with the 3 game win streak, and Vince is garnering a lot of the respect he didn't get his first three seasons in the NFL.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Johnson is the best running back in the NFL.  Don't believe me?  Still think it's Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson has just had a few nice weeks this year?  Check-out their career numbers through their first year and a half in the NFL:

Player Attempts Yards YPA TDs
Johnson 395 2,187 5.54 15
Peterson 414 2,164 5.23 18

Boom. Pan seared.

Follow us through the jump for my baseless speculation personal theory on why Bud Adams was giving birds for no charge on Sunday...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Mike Florio has a blah blah blah link on Bud's gesture, but I have a Florio-esque-'I have no evidence whatsoever and neither does anyone else so you can't just disprove the insinuation no matter how retarded or irresponsible it is, can ya?'-theory, but maybe Bud was talking to Goodell in that box about the CBA and the possibility of an uncapped year, and Bud didn't like what he heard?  Maybe the double clutch wasn't meant for the Bills, but rather the Commish after he had left the box.  Sure it's a stretch, but at least I'm admitting it upfront.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 CJ extended his lead over the NFL in rushing yards to 174 yesterday.  He's also still leading all non-QBs in total yards.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW says that Leroy Harris' versatility has boosted our O-line depth, and I couldn't agree more.  Having a guy who has proven he can play four positions on the line and play them week gives the coaching staff more time to work with our young guys before throwing them to the wolves when someone goes down.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How awesome was that block VY threw Sunday when CJ reversed the field?  Here's the video, with the block at the :37 mark.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Kenny Britt played a nice game overall on Sunday, while Finnegan, Vanden Bosch and Fuller took issue with a surprisingly mouthy Buffalo offense.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Despite all of the good atlk surrounding Young, the man still brings out the haters no matter what, like Ed Thompson of scout.com:

Though some are blinded by the euphoria that winning brings after a six-game losing skid, here are some facts from Young's performance over the past two weeks. He has completed 73 percent of his throws, but has moved the ball through the air an average of only 149 yards per game and thrown one touchdown pass. He has run the ball 17 times for an average of 2.6 yards per rush, scoring once.

Pretty mediocre stuff, to put it nicely.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans defense continues to keep coming up with turnovers, specifically INTs, that simply weren't there in the first six games.  Rod Hood also continues to prove why he should be the starter even when Harper returns at 100%.

 

Every time you read a great Titans-related story on the web and don't share it with the MCM community through the fanposts, fanshots or by emailing me at mcmaugustwest@gmail.com a Ravens (or Steelers) fan smiles.  Is that what you want?!!!!?!?!
