Tennessee_titans_30x21 Stephen Tulloch would like you to know that he hasn't been slacking-off one bit while he's holing-out in south Florida.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Rookie Myron Rolle had a charity organization up and running over a year before he got drafted, and yesterday it and he donated $1,000 to a charity for flood victims. Here's part of Myron's statement:

"Since I am new in Nashville I thought it would be a grand idea to impart some of our finances to relieve and help with the rescue efforts that happened here with the flood,’’ Rolle said. "I am not rich, I am not crazy wealthy, and this foundation just started. … But I felt it was important to help the community.’’

Follow us through the jump to see how skinny LenDale is these days...

Tennessee_titans_30x21  Bo Scaife wants you to know he isn't greedy. This is a handy addition to things you do know about Bo... like that he averages less than 2 touchdowns a year, despite almost never missing a game.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Anybody else think David Climer shows up to The Tennessean's office to collect his check with pantyhose on his head?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 LenDale White has slimmed down even further, and is weighing in at 219 lbs. these days. Two years ago I'd have said he's either anorexic or has an undiscovered tapeworm to get that skinny. Turns out he really was just that lazy.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW has a fascinating story on one of the forgotten greats of the NFL's early days. It focusses on Milt Plum, who was one of the league's most efficient passers for a short shot, but whose career highlights mostly center around handing the ball off to a guy named Jim Brown. When NFL historians talk about how Paul Brown's offense revolutionized the passing game in much the way Bill Walsh's West Coast system did three decades later, Plum is the man who made it happen.  Here's an excerpt:

When Plum stood under center for Paul Brown's Cleveland teams of the late 1950s and early '60s, he managed the offense as well as the coach could have hoped. There was no passer rating at the time, but football historians revealed long ago that Plum's 1960 season produced one of the greatest ratings of his or any era — a 110.4 (sixth-best all time, and one of only two all-time top-10 passer ratings posted before 1984). That year he threw 21 touchdowns and just five interceptions, completing 60.4 percent of his passes. The next highest passer rating of 1960 belonged to Philadelphia's Norm Van Brocklin (86.5).
