Tennessee Titans Morning Links: When A 1st Round Pick Ain't A 1st Round Pick Edition

New, comments

Tennessee_titans_30x21 LenDale said what he's been saying nicely for months now ('I'd rather not spend the prime of my career in a back-up role'), and somehow that's shocking to some folks. LenDale is a back with a lot of talent and some valuable skills: he rushed for 1,1000 yards the only time he ever carried the bulk of the load, and he totaled 27 touchdowns over 2008 and 2007. His career rushing average is a not-terribly impressive 3.7 (not 3.5, you illiterate numbskull), but who knows what it would be if he didn't spend half of his career here as a short-yaradge specialist. All I'm saying is that I can definitely understand why LenDale would really like to be traded-and I have no problem with him making that known-but if it doesn't happen he better show up to camp in shape and grateful he's in the NFL.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jason Babin is in town auditioning for the Titans' vacant token-white boy* position along the defensive line. I officially have no opinion either way on this potential signing.  It's a depth signing with a 2% chance of the man playing better for us than any of his other stops in the league. Yeah he was a 1st round pick, but he was a 1st round pick of the first Texans' regime, so I wouldn't brag too much on that. (*- Turns our he's actually hispanic. I see no reason to apologize.)

Follow us through the jump for jokes at the expense of the Steelers' rapey-QB...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Ben Roethlisberger hired the same lawyer who defended Ray Lewis, figuring that he is probably skilled at building a defense for illegal penetration.  Can we all pretty much agree that at this point Big Ben is a rapist, or needs to invest in hiding a bunch of tiny cameras on him at all times?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Wes Bunting says that, even more so than most years, the best combine performers don't have the game film to back-up their sterling measurable.  A lot of these guys are work-out wonders who lack the techniques and instincts it takes 99% of players to make a career in the NFL.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Texans jettisoned the highest-rated CB on the market, and are now courting the second best one available, Leigh Bodden.  I can't help it: every time I hear his name I think of Children of Bodom.
