Jeff Fisher has come out as one of the more vocal advocates of changing the current overtime format for the playoffs (no changes to the regular season format):
"What we don’t want to have happen in the playoffs is a kickoff return, and then a penalty and a field goal, and have the game be over," Fisher said. "What we’re proposing has sudden-death qualities throughout it, even at the beginning. … Bottom line is that each team will have an opportunity to possess — doesn’t guarantee a possession."
Fisher also took some time to speak with Boston Media members, to whom he expressed disappointment that we couldn't keep Alge.
Paul K brought the rhetorical wood in his chat when a Titans PSL holder popped-off about the teams lack of free agency splash:
[ED: formatting condensed for space] Paul Kuharsky: Good options are available? OK, I’ll bite. Please give me a couple names. They got a veteran corner, linebacker and, if the Eagles don’t match, defensive end. That’s not bad for a team looking to build through the draft. They’ve got experienced insurance or depth, and can now go get kids with upside. Who is it you want that’s available right now? How many FAs did Colts and Saints add last season before they went to the Super Bowl?As for Kerry Collins’ money -- he doesn’t get a new dime until the first week of the season. (And it’s $5.5 M left not $7.5.) So with no second quarterback in play, wouldn’t it be irresponsible to make a move now?

David Boclair reports from the Vanderbilt Pro Day, which was headlined by CB Myron Lewis and OT Thomas Welch. Several other players on the perifiry of draft boards included S Ryan Hamilton and DEs Broderick Stewart and Steven Stone.
Football Outsiders reviewed the 2006 2004 draft, and listed Ben Troupe as one of the biggest busts. Troupe followed his lackluster stay with the Titans by doing even less at Tampa and Oakland, so you can't just say it was the Titans' coaches fault.
I'm linking this just because it's nice to see someone else point out what I've been saying since 2006 - Pac didn't just wash out of the NFL because of his behavior. He washed out because the man is a terrible CB who got killed on every double move he ever saw:
5. Pacman Jones is in the news again? Are you serious? Why would any team want to meet with him? At some point, someone needs to tell me what tape to watch of Jones covering a wide receiver. Why waste the money?
