Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Wyatt knows 5 things about the Titans, and one of them is that Vince Young still looks uncomfortable.  I was out at practice yesterday, and that was certainly running theme out there.  His only completions were short check-downs and he threw an INT on the third play of the two minute drill.  I know some folks are saying he looks better out there this year, but I'm just not seeing it at all.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 It's nice to see Coach Fisher having some fun with new defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil during the HOF Game:

In his first game as Titans defensive coordinator Sunday, [Cecil] wandered far afield from the coaches' box. The officials didn't see him. But Titans Coach Jeff Fisher did.

"I was down there at the 15-yard line and Jeff came on the phone and said, 'Coach Cecil, would you join me at the 30?' " Cecil recalled. "I turned around and said, 'Sure, I'll be right there.' "

Tennessee_titans_30x21 So LenDale White and Chris Johnson are now sticking with Smash and Dash, and LenDale has a message for those who think all of this business is somehow 'selfish' or 'disruptive':

"We’re still a team. Individuals play the game, but teams win championships," White said.

Follow us through the jump to find-out about some new options in the Titans offense...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans have been practicing a few true option plays for Vince, and the practice results hal and I have seen are a good indication of why nobody runs the option in the NFL... namely, it doens't much matter if you toss it or keep it when you have Keith Bulluck and Michael Griffin barreling down on you.
