The Patriots have lost their top 2 TEs already, and now they're making a strong push to sign Alge Crumpler. My guess is the Titans are content to let Crump walk since we have major investments in Scaife ($), Cook (draft pick) and Stevens (don't forget he was a 3rd rounder).
Safety Sean Jones has decided to sign with the Buccaneers, presumabely beause they offered a better chance at a start spot... either that or Jones thinks he looks mighty fly in those creamcicle throwbacks they're breaking out these days.
Kevin Mawae may or may not return to the Titans, but he'll definately return to the head of the NFLPA. Mawae was unanimously* re-elected President of the players' union by his peers. (*- anecdotal evidence from the writer time: when it comes to a union, always take the phrase 'unanimously elected' with a grain of salt; most unions hold one a vote so that everyone knows who would win, then a second official vote where everyone shows solidarity.)

Don Banks has a new Mock Draft out , and he has the Titans taking Superhorn's highest-rated prospect, Jason Pierre-Paul. Should this pick actually happen I will be so excited, yet nausiatingly scared at the same time I may not be able to write about it for a while. The kid has HUGE upside, but only has 11 games at the D-1 level; is anyone worth a first round pick after that little run? On the other hand he was playing at the junior college level for the two years prior, so it's not like he was just benched and collecting rust. Plus he gets good marks for the two most important categories when judging a D-lineman: explsiveness and consistent effort.

Jim Schwartz may be on the verge of making a huge mistake...
Calvin Coolidge Senior High School made history this week by hiring what is believed to be the frst full-time varsity football coach who happens to be a woman. She was a tracks star in school, and has played the last 6 years in the National Women's Football Association, so she knows the game. If you read down a bit, Keith Bulluck commented on it via Twitter:
Keith Bulluck, a 10-year NFL veteran, posted on Twitter that he's "not saying it can't be done or shouldn't be done. Football is clearly a mans sport & it's 2 be seen how young men take to their coach being a woman."
