Lavelle Hawkins certainly didn't earn any more playing time at Jeff Fisher's Celebrity softball game last Saturday:
-Current Titans receiver Lavelle Hawkins was named the Least Valuable Player. At one point, Fisher had Hawkins fake an injury in a bases-loaded situation for his team so he could have former Titan quarterback Steve McNair come up to bat.
Also, if anyone knows who was heckling VY at a damn charity softball game, please smack them in the back of the head for me. You're classier than that Titans fans.
Kenny Britt 'tweaked' his hamstring in OTAs once again... this better not be a preview of things to come.
Kevin Mawae's recovery from off-season elbow surgery has actually been a boon for our O-line unit: it means LeRoy Harris has gotten to go through the entire off-season working as the starting center. So, if anything happens to the captain, Harris will be more prepared than ever to step in, have the respect of the huddle, and make the blitz adjustments on the line than ever before. That's big because Terry McCormick is right: if we're getting to Miami this year, we're getting there on the backs of our big O-line.
DE Jevon Kearse is looking improve upon his 3.5 sack performance last year, and hopes that his legs are a little healthier this year than last year.
Meanwhile second year player William Hayes is looking for a break-out year, and even set the lofty goal of a double digit sack total. Hayes is probably the wildcard in our DE rotation: if he has a year like Jacob Ford had last year you can pretty well bet that means we have the sickest, deepest D-Line unit in the league... which is a huge advantage late in games and over the course of a full season.
This towel stuff just keeps on coming back around.
Patrick Ramsey didn't sign with the Titans to become the no. 3 guys, and he's pushing VY with everything he has to make himself the back-up.
A statistical measure for which game was more exciting? It's a nice thought anyways, but I'm not buying that or their list of the most exciting Titans games.
Travis Henry may be the father of two more kids: twins in Florida. He might as well be gunning for some record now.
So if you and your brother were mega-NFL stars who already had championships, boat loads of money and were at the peak of your worldwide influence, you could probably pull some strings to see some amazing shows right? Well who did the Manning brothers use their tremendous pull to see? Better Than Ezra. Somehow I can just hear them bother doing that weird noise-sing thing their lead singer does compulsively ('aww- haw' does not count as a lyric).
