Cortland Finnegan didn't like the towel stomping incident last year, and he said as much during a chat with nfl.com:
Could we see more stomping of the terrible towel this year?
Cortland Finnegan, Tennessee Titans:
No, absolutely not. Certain individuals may do that, but that's not what this team is all about. That's not what this coach is about, that's not what our team is about. You do it inbetween the lines ... the rest of it is unacceptable.
Because this is America, you can disagree with people and say it out loud without getting killed for it. And along with Bulluck (who probably didn't like these comments) and Boom King, Cortland is definitely a leader and voice on this defense now. People disagree all the time on what's proper behavior and what's not in a given situation. I personally thought this was hilarious, and I didn't get offended because if I wanted to watch perpetual stoicism and grown men whining about 'respect' at the drop of a hat I'd just watch baseball all year. Football is a game of passion and celebration, and that means no everyone will agree on the 'unwritten rules' as steadfastly as they would in baseball.
It takes all types: some people would rather watch two teams get chippy with each other, while some would rather watch an emotionless snooze-fest where everybody curtsies and smiles at each other after the game.
Nice to see that Crazy Legs is coming into OTAs with some swagger:
"I want to be NFL MVP, and lead the league in rushing... I want to be named to another Pro Bowl. I like to set my goals high, and everything is possible.''
Yes Crazy, we'd like to see those things happen as well, because they'd probably mean we're a top 3 team in the league again.
Jim Wyatt has notes from yesterday's practice, which was open to the media.
Judging from these comments on Drew Bennett by Fisher, I wouldn't expect a signing unless someone goes down with a season ending injury in camp.
Paul K gets some Jim Rome-style sentence fragments out of Chuck Cecil on a variety of topics.
Several Titans, T-Rac and some cheerleaders will be at the Nashville Zoo on May 31st to promote the NFL's "Play 60" program. Check out the announcement here for more information.
