Titans RB/FB(?) Jamie Harper still doesn't have a playbook. Harper met with locker a the NFL Players Rookie Premier last weekend, and the plan is for Locker to make a copy of it and get it to Harper (I'd hope that network/plan would extend to any other players who were drafted after the lockout was reinstated).
Chris Palmer and the other Titans coaches are spending most of their time reviewing game tape of the new draftees and the veterans they expect to bring back. The hope is that, whenever the dust settles, the coaching staff will be better prepared to take advantage of the individual strengths of each player as well as highlight what they need to work on to succeed in the new schemes.Bruce Matthews is dying to get his first season as O-line coach of the Titans rolling.
The players started out on a roll in court, but ever since the case's jurisdiction got changed they've been getting hammered. Now, the situation is looking more dire than ever for the players and the fans. The more this thing stays a war of attrition, the worse it's going to be for fans and the players.
