Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young's MRI looked good, and the QB and coach have said he'll most likely be ready for Sunday's game.  The most interesting part to me though, is that Fisher trusts Vince enough that he could play with no practice time this week should he no be ready until gameday.  That's a luxury only veterans the staff trusts to put in the work and learn just through film and conversations are afforded.

I winded myself after the first couple of plays because I was so excited.’’

Tennessee_titans_30x21 December is a crucial month for any team on the precipice of making the playoffs, and few teams have been as good at it over the last few years as these Miami Dolphins.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 For those of you who follow the Titans from afar and perhaps haven't gotten to experience the city of Nashville or a game at LP Field, here's a pretty solid review by Stadium Journey.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 It's not too early for the draft to come up for just a second, and Todd McShay's latest mock draft ($- Insider subscription required) has us grabbing Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Unfortunately, it's looking like former-Titan Jacob Bell's season may have ended on LP Field last Sunday when he tore a hamstring muscle.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Who knew you could get fined a few grand for tossing a football into the stands after a touchdown?  To my mind, you should only get fined if you give to anyone other than a kid or old person.
