Tennessee_titans_30x21 So the Titans are working out Matt Jones.  You know what, as much as I want to scream nooooooo!, I have to say that if they're looking to bolster the depth at that spot, then you can do a lot worse than a completely healthy 26 year old 6'6" physical freak who managed to catch 62 passes in a pretty bad offense last year.  His production has gone up every single year he's been in the league.  In the grand scheme of things his legal problems are pretty easy to stomach by NFL standards: I'll take a possible cokehead over a wife-beater/violent criminal every day and a few times on Sunday.  Besides, playing WR has got to be way easier than driving that train...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Put it this way, I'd certainly take Jones over Jerry effin' Porter or Samie Parker.  Jerry Porter has been terrible for years, and was a major locker room cancer in Oakland.  On a related note: you know who should be freaking out?  Lavelle Hawkins.  If they had any faith in him this wouldn't be happening.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K thinks we could definitely sign Jones, but that we're really looking for a WR who can also help out in the return game.  That means a smaller, shiftier style WR, and doesn't bode well for Porter or Jones.

Follow us through the jump to find out the one thing Fisher is lacking...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Teresa M. Walker notes that there's only one thing lacking in Jeff Fisher's tremendous resume: a Super Bowl win.  To wit:

He already ranks 22nd in coaching wins and is second only to Bill Belichick (153) among active coaches with his 133 victories. Only nine other coaches have spent more time with one team than Fisher with 240 games, and that list includes such great coaches as George Halas, Tom Landry, Don Shula, Chuck Noll, Curly Lambeau and Joe Gibbs.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Most of the decisions for who will be cut on 4:00 pm on Saturday have almost certainly been made, but there's always the chance that a huge effort tonight could save a man's job.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, it does.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 In advance of Saturday's deadline for teams to get to the 53 man roster, Ross Tucker goes over the common ways players react when they fear they may be on the wrong side of that bubble.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I know this is groundbreaking news across the interwebs, but Peter King sucks at his job.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 And for reasoning why, just read the Scouting report Don Banks wrote that is linked by PK.  He knows better than that sack of crap.  Many thanks to commenter SoCalTitan and super-hater Gramsey for pointing these links out!
