Unlike Winni, I didn't play flag football in high school gym class because I was playing real football. I did, however, play intramural flag football in college, and from that I learned some lessons of my own.

The first is that you absolutely have to have a quarterback to win against the good teams. I was always on a pretty athletic team, but we could never go very far in the playoffs because we didn't have a very good quarterback. Thankfully for this team that problem is already solved with Jake Locker being the all-time quarterback.

The second lesson I learned was that 7 on 7 flag football is all about speed. Knowing that, I must concede that Winni got the best available Titans' player for this game when he selected Chris Johnson.

That lead me to try and figure out who the second fastest player on the Titans is. Kendall Wright might not be the second fastest timed player on the Titans, but I believe that he is the best player left for this format. He is going to run really good routes and catch everything thrown in his direction.

I also have to think about somebody than can cover CJ, and Wright would be at the top of that list. I am not saying that he can run step for step with him, but he would understand enough about what CJ was trying to do that he would be effective in coverage.
