The best news we got yesterday is that there is no structural damage to Matt Hasselbeck's elbow. They're describing it as a muscle strain. Hass will probably sit out of most of the practices this week to rest up, but he looks like a sure bet to start on Sunday.
Breaking news for the blind: Our offensive line hit a new low against the Falcons.
It's looking like David Stewart, Derrick Morgan and Barret Ruud didn't suffer major injuries on Sunday, but they'll miss practice time and might not be ready to go against the Bucs.
Paul K says to hang up on any calls for Jake Locker.
Nate Washington has already topped his previous career high for total receptions, and is one good game away from topping his single season yardage record. Also, Bironas, who looked bad in preseason and missed his first two kicks of the season, has hit 14 straight kicks since those misses.
The Titans will be putting on their annual coat drive at Sunday's game, so if you're headed to LP Field try to track down a lightly used coat to help the local homeless.
This Sunday might be a homecoming for Albert Haynesworth, but LeGarrette Blount is the guy coming back to Nashville with a legitimate axe to grind. Blount seems to have settled into a pretty good-not-great level of production in Tampa over the past season and a half, but as Green Bay saw last week, he's still capable of some terrifying runs.
The guys at th Fifth Down Blog take a few stabs at ESPN's Total QB Rating, including a look at why this rating loves Matt Hasselbeck so much.
Alright, I'm all for stability on a coaching staff, and Chris Palmer has done a solid job in my opinion, but if Norv Turner is fired out in San
d Diego that's got to be a move Munchak and Reinfeldt look long and hard at this offseason. As much as I don't like Turner as a coach, he's one of the best and most proven offensive coordinators in the league, and he'd be a godsend for the careers of Jake Locker, Kenny Britt, Jared Cook and Chris Johnson.
