I’m a little disappointed the playoff wins against the Colts and Jaguars in the Super Bowl run aren’t included, especially the championship game at Jacksonville. The Titans o-line completely dominated the Jags in the second half, running the ball down their throats, and there wasn’t a thing they could do to stop it. It was the third win of the season over the Jags, which later prompted Jeff Fisher to claim the team had played in five homes in the last four years, if you included Jacksonville’s Alltel Field.
In other news, I’m encouraged by the latest move to beef up the scouting at both the pro and college levels. For years, the Titans have had less scouts than most other teams, which has long been a sore spot with me.
Those of you who follow The Tennessean’s coverage of the Titans have probably noticed a lot of recent articles by Jessica Hopp. She’s been filling in while Paul Kuharsky was on vacation and Jim Wyatt is recuperating from an accident. Jim fell off a ladder while painting and broke both wrists, which has left him with casts on both arms. He’s in good spirits and looking forward to being back to work in time for training camp. Jim’s still doing his weekly radio show on 104.5.
