TITANS PLAGUED BY MOSS

Just when you thought that Randy Moss would take a team to the next level…BOOM! Wrong again.  They didn’t need him in New England after he kept mouthing off about his contract.  He turned the Minnesota Vikings into a bigger circus, if that’s even possible.  Then they released him too.  And now in his debut with the Titans, they lose to the hapless Miami Dolphins.  Sure, the Titans didn’t have Vince Young and Kerry Collins got injured in the game but they still had enough fire power to win this games.  I’m a big believer in team chemistry and locker room cancers.  Randy Moss is about to join the Terrell Owens club of “plenty of talent, but no takers…”  There is no specific event that triggered Moss’ fall from grace. He wasn’t happy in Minnesota when they had Chris Carter and Dante Culpepper.  He wasn’t happy in Oakland (understandably so). He barked up the wrong tree in New England and got traded for a measly mid-round draft pick.  He couldn’t get it together in Minnesota and now this.  I got a feeling that Jeff Fisher is going to regret this decision in a few weeks.  Moss is a sure fire hall-of-famer but his reputation is being tarnished.  It’s a good thing this is the MLB where players are judged on their character along with their stats.  Look what happened to Albert Bell. Stay tuned next week for the continuation of this soap opera, the saga continues.

LOCK of the Week

“A” game. I told you I was gonna bring it… and I did.  Steelers pulling it off at home after being down 10-3 in the 4th quarter.  They covered, I covered, you won.  8-6 on the year.  Like I said last week, gonna finish off the NFL season strong.  This week, we got the Tennessee Titans -3.5 at the Houston Texans.  Tennessee is strong.  They’ve only lost 1 game on the season and with 3 games remaining, this actually might be their last win (Pittsburgh and Indy left). The Texans on the other hand, well, they’re just the Texans.  With a 6-7 record on the year, this team just isn’t gelling.  I’m not going to try to justify my pick.  I don’t think I have to.  Go do what you have to do, if you wanna make the CAAASSSSHHHHHH…

Remember the Titans?

Well, they lost on Sunday, 34-13, at home, to the Jets.  I watched this game and for some reason, the Titans never looked like they were in it. That potent running game… 47 yds total.  That defense… 34 points to the Jets.  That passing game… 1 td, 243 yds.  Look, I’m not gonna dig on them now that they’ve lost their first game of the season, I mean they’re still 10-1.  But I want to hear from someone outside of Tennesee who’s picked these guys as Superbowl favorites. The Jets on the other hand, KEEP ON surprising me.  Brett Favre, Thomas Jones, Laveranues Coles, it’s a nice three headed monster but I’m just not shakin’ in my boots. Fortunately for them, they have the Broncos, Niners, Bills, Seahawks and  Dolphins to finish the season, which should leave them with at least a 12-4 record, and a possible first round bye. The game between these two teams was a solid ball game, but didn’t seem like the CLASH that everyone has been hyping all week. Then again, I guess in the NFL, anything can happen. This year is anyone’s year.

Tennessee Titans Remain Unbeaten

Kerry “mother truckin” Collins!!! If you told me before the season started  that the Tennessee Titans would be 10-0, I would’ve revoked your NFL priveleges.  To top that off, doing it without Vince Young?!?! I’m shocked. After going down 14-3 at the half, I thought FOR SURE the streak was over but talk about a sick comeback.  What a superb performance by Kerry Collins, 3 tds, all in the second half. The Jaguars on the other hand continue their disappointing season with a 4-6 record, watching their playoff hopes go down the drain.  The Titans’, on the other hand, are 4 games ahead of Indy.  Barring a huge collapse, looks like the road to the Superbowl will go through Tennessee.  I’m not saying that they’re going 16-0 as I would have to agree with ’72 Dolphins’ Mercury Morris “Don’t call me when your in my town, call me when your on my block.” Aside for a possible letdown against an overrated Jets team next week, the only obstacles ahead are the Steelers in Week 16 or the Colts in Week 17. But let’s keep one thing in mind, the perfect regular season doesn’t mean diddly if the you don’t win the Superbowl, as we saw with the Pats of ’07-’08.  Kudos to Kerry Collins for finding the fountain of youth.

Vince Young: “Stop! You’re Hurting My Feelings”

So, Vince Young’s feelings are hurt.  After going down in game 1 of the NFL season with a sprained knee, the Titans’ fans, his Titans fans, booed him.  Guess what buddy, this ain’t college anymore.  The difference between college and NFL has never been so apparent to me.  Look at Matt Lienart and Reggie Bush, 2 huge studs in college, teetering on the brink of duds in the pros. I got some advice for Vince: You were the #3 pick in the 2006 draft. You signed a 6-year $58 million contract with a $26 million guaranteed signing bonus. Suck it up and play.  It’s part of the game.  You should actually feel flattered; fans only boo the athletes that they have great expectations from.  It’s when they stop booing you when you should start worrying. The first 2 year of your career we can forget, growing pains. We won’t talk about how you’ve thrown more career interceptions (30), than touchdowns (21), and that’s not even talking about your performance on Sunday. Let’s see, 1 game, 12-22, 110 yds, 1 td, 2 ints. But let’s not forget to factor in your scrambling skills, 1 rush, 4 yds. I will give you one excuse though, your wide receivering corp. is a joke.  But that’s it.  You can’t use that excuse for 3 straight years.  This is the big leagues, the show.  This is your team.  Kerry Collins isn’t taking over diddly.  Take a few weeks off.  Get your head on straight.  Tell Titans owner Bud Adams to start making some moves in the WR department.  In one month, we want to see you back on the field.  We have faith in you Vince. Dig down inside. Bring us that Vince that torched SC in the Rosebowl, the Vince that led his team to the playoffs last year.  The Vince that everyone thought was the best player in the 2006 draft. Let’s go buddy, BREAK!!!
