Hmm....

Ok, we need more TD's, but still, why are the Titans bashed for their receiver play and not the Jags?.

Dude, they crucify the Jags receivers in Jacksonville. Rightly so. They suck.

So do the Titans though. They had 9 passing TDs all year.. JESUS. If they ever want VY to be more than Michael Vick without the kennel, get him a reliable WR who can not only go vertical but also will come across the middle and catch the ball every single time... Easy to do I know.

I would hope the local scene would address the teams weaknesses, but I was talking more about the national stage.

I think Chris Johnson is going to emerge as a vertical threat, and Alge Crumpler will be our across the middle man.

I hope we get some decent production out of McCareins.
