Matt Hasselbeck analyzes the Super Bowl match-up for the Tennessean.
There's a new website up that's making waves for Titans fans: ComeHomePeyton.com. It's been started by a group of Titans fans who hope to lure Peyton Manning to the Titans, since it really looks like Pey Pey's time in Indy is over. You're going to hear a lot of this talk over this offseason, but I seriously doubt it happens. In all honesty, I have serious doubts that Peyton ever takes another snap in the NFL again, and if he does there's no reason to think he'll be able to recreate the magic we've come to expect from his prime years as a Colt. We're committed to Jake Locker, and doubt the organization is bold enough to upset the ship with a move that has so many question marks around it. Still, I know there'll be a lot of people who disagree with me, and I can't completely dismiss the thought that Peyton has the chance to get healthy and make this offense truly elite. If nothing else, he'd be a lock to have every seat in LP Field occupied on Sundays.
Paul K looks at the possibility of Manning landing with any other AFC South team.
John Glennon looks at the misfortunes of the 2010 draft, when the Giants made the bold pick of Jason Pierre-Paul, and hit a home run. In that same draft the Eagles moved up to snag Brandon Graham and we had Derrick Morgan rated as the best DE in the draft, both of whom have lost a full season to injury and failed to impress last year. I'll admit that I was one of the many on this site who completely opposed the idea of drafting Pierre-Paul, who was more impressive doing back flips at the combine than playing DE at South Florida. Completely missed there, here we are sitting two seasons later with DE still one of the weakest spots on the team.
Wes Bunting has us taking South Carolina CB Stephon Gilmore in his second mock draft, and passing on Janoris Jenkins, in the first round to replace Cortland Finnegan.
Meanwhile, SB Nation's Eric Stephen has us taking USC defensive end Nick Perry.
Not to pat myself on the back too much, but this weekend I successfully extended my streak of not watching the Pro Bowl to 30 years!
