Lane Kiffin is definitely the guy I'd want setting the example for my 18 year old kid...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Want to be the first Titans fan camping out for single game tickets when they go on sale Saturday? Too late. There's already an occupied tent set-up outside the box-office at LP Field.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Kennedy Pola says he was caught off guard by the lawsuit filed by the Titans against his new boss and employer, which is the same line Lane Kiffin is giving. Pola was surprised by the move because Fisher didn't seem angry when he said goodbye. Kiffin basically says he was surprised because he always gets to do what he wants regardless of contractual or professional obligations and doesn't get held responsible for it.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Best read of the day: Vandy grad, UT fan and part-time lawyer Clay Travis dives into the leagalese of the Titans' lawsuit.


Tennessee_titans_30x21 Second best read of the day: How miserable can the Titans make Lane Kiffin? The long and short of it seems to be that this lawsuit would do more to damage Lane's reputation, and possibly force him the embarrassment of having to appear in a Tennessee court, than it would results in monetary damages.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 ESPN's legal guru, Lester Munson, says that position coaches and coordinators stand to lose the most if there's a lockout in 2011.  Many teams have contract clauses that deprive assistants of 75% of their salary for a short period after a lock-out begins, after which time the coach would be functionally fired. The rules are very different for each team, and there's no details in here about the Titans' plan, but gee whiz, I wonder if Kiffin ever mentioned that when he was recruiting Pola to  USC.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Robert Johnson finally got his contract officially signed, which leaves only Derrick Morgan and Damian Williams unsigned with three days until training camp opens.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K has thoughts on the early shape of our depth chart. Here's the most interesting tidbit:

... First-round defensive end Derrick Morgan is third on one side behind Jacob Ford and Jason Babin.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Bill Plashke tries to make the argument that, while USC and Kiffin went about it poorly, Pola really was the right hire for the university.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW is hearing a lot about Pete Carroll and the Seahawks from an NFL insider, and not a bit of it is good news.
