Jason Babin is going all over creation on hunting trips, and could be on a reality show... showing just how dedicated he is to follow-up his one good year in the NFL. If Chris Johnson or Michael Roos want to skip some of the voluntary stuff their teammates are doing at Father Ryan, more power to them. They've got a track record of great play and top-notch preparation. Babin, in my book, needs to show he's not just a money-year fluke who can play without Washburn in his ear.
Speaking of CJ, he's doing something now called 'Grunts', which is like an audio tweet. I feel pretty confident in saying I'd rather try to decipher his text tweets than try to understand what he's actually saying.
Rick Reilly did a redraft... hang on, how exactly is a backpage columnist who made their money on human interest pieces the ESPN analyst who does this piece? Couldn't you name about 10 guys at ESPN more qualified to retroactively grade these things? The Titans do have the his second best total overall, so maybe he's not so off-base.
Matt Bowen makes the argument that as offenses continue to expand their list of spread plays, the cover 2 is coming back. For the past few years it's been in vogue to say the cover 2 is dying, but Bowen makes a good case that it's actually being implemented by more teams than ever, they just aren't running it exclusively.
Former Titans DT Kevin Vickerson, who was shipped to Seattle in the LenDale deal, has dropped over 30 lbs.
Thank you, sir. May you be the first of many to be real about this so some athletes can grow up a little.
