I don't know about you kids, but the game I'm most looking forward to is the Houston game on Monday Night Football. It'll be great for the nation to see what has grown into a great rivalry... now that the Texans are no longer the AFC South's whipping boys.
Paul K does what I'm not up to doing yet: analyzes the schedule. All I think looking at the home vs. away rhythm is that opening with 4 of 6 games on the road makes it tough to get into a rhythm like we did last year. That being said, it also helps us in the second half, where getting in the flow of dominating is key.
North Carolina WR Hakeem Nicks will be in town tomorrow as the Titans wrap-up their pre-draft meetings with prospects. I never thought I'd suggest this of anyone, but maybe Nicks should get some weight loss tips from LenDale.
Here are 41 notes on West Virgina product Pat White (Insider subscription required), who would be a brilliant pick for us in the 2nd round (or moving up into the early 3rd with our extra picks) if we end up going defense in the first... check-out the upcoming podcast for more thoughts on that.
The Football Outsiders are running the second part of their in-depth look at running back usage in today's game. I highly encourage everyone to read to whole series because some of their analysis reinforces what we're doing right now and dispelling some ideas about strategies like RB by committee vs. having a workhorse.
