    Still Perplexed by Tennessee

    I don't get how Ten got so bad this year.

    Maybe it's the impact of Steve McNair's death on the org.

    Nothing else I can think of makes any sense.

    Kerry Collins had a career year last year as a quarterback. He's back to what he was prior to last year. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

    They lost their D.C. Jim Schwartz, which I think is the main reason. Also they had some tough games at the beginning then they had a lot of injuries to their secondary...

    Yeah, makes you wonder what our D will look like when LeBeau retires. Wow, what a scary thought.

    Arians can handle it...especially if he turns all the offensive play-calling over to Ben.

    COLLINS pulled a Tommy Maddox - it's not like they can't run the ball.

    DEFENSE!!!
    Losing Haynesworth, their DC and their secondary is just patch work.

    You'd think they would have won at least 1 game by now.

    Good point--too bad for them they have VY in the wings... and we had Ben.

    (I can remember, that season before the SB season, how when they decided to switch to Ben in Week 2 of his rookie season, I said it was ALL OVER. That no rookie QB is worth a $hit, etc. How wrong I was, and how funny to think back. )
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.
