No, Really...We're Not Going to Miss Drew Bennett

Unbelievable.

One would think the Titans lost the best friggin' wide-out in history. Folks just will not shut up about how "the Titans need to replace Drew Bennett" or "they really didn't do enough in the draft to replace Drew Bennett" or "Vince Young will be forced to run it every play next year because he lost the greatest receiver ever in Drew Bennett".

HEY! DREW BENNETT WILL NOT EVEN BE A #1 WR WITH HIS NEW TEAM! HE MIGHT EVEN BE THE FRIGGIN' SLOT GUY! AND HE SIGNED A CONTRACT WORTH $30 MILLION FOR 6 YEARS! GOOD RIDDANCE!

Side note: I just noticed on his Wiki bio that he and his friends memorized the movie Ghost in college. Ummmmm...that's probably the gayest thing I've ever heard. By far. I mean, why in hell would any rational group of people ever decide to do such a thing?





I love you....ditto.

All through the off-season the "experts" have been calling out Tennessee. They should sign Stallworth, maybe Welker, McCardell, what about Kelley Washington...he could maybe be good? Oooohh, we should go after Joe Horn! He was good back in the day! Kevin Curtis! No way the Titans sit around and let a guy like Kevin Curtis slip through the cracks. What? He signed with Philly for $32 million? Shut up. Who else...ahhh - Darrell Jackson. He and David Givens could hang out in the hospital together! Damn, too late. The Niners already snatched him and Ashley Lelie. Eric Moulds? Nope. Ah, hell, guess Tennessee will be forced to make a trade for Detroit's Mike Williams.

Well damn. There's always the draft, though...right? At pick #19 there are sure to be some quality WR's on the board....maybe Teddy Ginn?

...the Tennessee Titans select, Michael Griffin, Safety, from the University of Texas.

Sweet. Guy's gonna be a stud. But who will replace our MVP, Drew Bennett?





The writing geniuses over at SI seem to think Tennessee is "eyeing" Me-shawn. To be honest, I really don't care if we sign him or not. Yes, he'd be our #1 WR right away. Yes, his wife is smoking hot. But he's 34 and probably won't care too much about the future of the team he signs with for too much money. In reality, signing him could set our current young group of WR's back by limiting playing time. Or he could be a great mentor. No telling.

If a Michael Turner deal is still a possibility, that should be the main focus of the Titans. If Keyshawn can be signed for a reasonable price...hell, go for it. As long as it's not a 5-year deal.

When people are saying your team is in trouble because they're missing their token white receiver, you wonder what the world is coming to. Meanwhile, most around the football world are saying, "Who?"
