Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Expect Simms To Light It Up At Today's Joint Practice Edition

New, comments

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Today the Titans will hold a joint practice with the Arizona Cardinals, and Fisher is promising a display that focuses more on efficiency than intensity.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Hopefully this week will be the week of healing for the Titans as guys like Derrick Morgan, Jacob Ford, Justin Gage, Cortland Finnegan and Collin Allred arm aiming to rejoin the team. The road back to the practice field is looking a lot longer for Willy Hayes, Tony Brown David Thornton and Mike Otto.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young is hitting passes at a 73.7% clip, which should excite even the most jaded Titans fans. Needless to say, Fisher is pretty excited about VY's improvements as well.

Follow us through the jump for more on VY and the rest of the gang...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jm Corbett of USA Today writes about how Jeff Fisher has been an integral part of VY's maturation process. But the real reason I'm linking this is because of this gem from Jeff Fisher about how he helped pull the team together out of the 0-6 start last year:

"After the bye week, I put up a revised 2009 schedule," Fisher says. "I told the team, 'There's a new, 10-game season because of some natural disaster.'

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Boclair has a funny tidbit for anyone out there who was mistakenly excited by the fact that Samkon Gado ended up with two touchdowns last week:

The last Titans’ player to score two touchdowns in a single preseason game was wide receiver Dominique Edison, who had two scoring receptions in the 2009 preseason finale. Edison made the roster out of training but was inactive six times, spent three weeks on the practice squad and twice dressed but did not get in a game. He did not catch a pass in the regular season.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 NFL Spokesman Greg Aeillo said that the owners are meeting in Atlanta to discuss an 'enhanced' season. This is obviously a sign of two things: the owners want to discuss how to present an 18 game regular season at the CBA bargaining table, and the NFL's messaging has been farmed out to Enzyte's marketing department.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 ESPN's AJ Mass states the obvious: Vince Young is a stellar no.2 quarterback on any fantasy team.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Oilers legend Earnest Givens wants Bud Adams and the Titans to retire his jersey.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chargers rookie Ryan Mathews had his nose cauterized. That is all.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Surprise, surprise: Keith Bulluck is ballin-out in New York and has been moved to the OLB spot. I took extra notice of this because it meant former All-SEC player and Vanderbilt star Jonathan Goff would stay the starter in the MLB spot.
