If you're comparing the Titans running game to a debilitating drug addiction - I'm thinking Chris Rock in New Jack City, or anyone other than Mickey Rourke in Spun - then surely to god they've hit bottom. Not that they're going to be much better against the stout Bengals front seven, but surely this isn't the worst rushing offense of the modern era... which they're playing like so far this season.
Karl Klug and Jurrell Casey may come from completely different worlds, but they're united in their goal of terrorizing opposing offensive linemen, running backs and quarterbacks for the Titans. Klug and Casey have made for a surprisingly effective rotation at DT for 3rd and
7th 5th round picks, so much so that they've made the DT spot the second strongest position on the defense.
Craig Stevens is growing a mustache for prostate awareness. Yup, you read that right.... unless you read it wrong due to some learning disability or just sloppy reading habits, but I can't really account for that. All I can do is wish the best for ya.
Craig Stevens, William Hayes and Colin McCarthy all returned to practice yesterday. All three of those guys would be welcomed additions to the gameday roster if they're healthy enough, and I'd really like to see more of McCarthy, instead of Barrett Ruud, in particular.
Anthony Smith got fined $7,500 for his stupefying hit on a sliding Curtis Painter.
Tom Gower nails Tim Tebow but it would work for Vince Young too:
Tom: Because everybody knows it's way better to be super-awesome the last 10 minutes of the game and win than be super-awesome the first 10 minutes of a game and build a lead that your team keeps for the rest of the game.
Matt Hasselbeck and Cortland Finnegan were mic'd up
fgor for Sunday's win, and they did not fail to deliver.
Warren Moon took some time off from patting himself on the back for being so epicly correct on Cam Newton to shower some love on Andy Dalton and the Bengals after watching them defeat the Seahawks last Sunday.
Marvin Lewis speaks awfully highly of a guy whose sole accomplishment in Cincy has been not getting arrested. For all of the talk around the idea that Pacman is somehow more mature now, I'd contend the fact that injuries have limited him to a meager 6 appearances over the past two years shows that he's barely a member of the team. Lets see him stay out of trouble when people are aware of the fact that he's still in the league.
Not everyone has the time or political disposition to go camp-out in the park of a nearby major city and protest as part of the 99%, but everyone reading this can take one moment to really make a difference in this country: All you have to do is click here, e-sign this petition, and you'll be doing your part to help replace Nickelback as the halftime entertainment of the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving game.
