Living here in Nashville, I have to think that Eddie George will still be here when his career ends. The Titans seem to have that "family" mentality reminiscent of the first reign of His Royal Gibbsness. Which I hope returns to the Skins. A good dose of WE FIRST is always better than ME FIRST.

The Titans even had one of their linemen (Fred Miller) volunteer for a pay cut to make it possible to sign O'Donnell as a backup to McNair.

The Titans seem to actually like playing together.

Guys - you know what makes some of these running backs great? Their lines. Without Denver's line, some of their backs wouldn't be as good. Look at some of the backs out there who switch teams and then WHAM - they either fall flat or catch fire - like Holmes. He is good, but the awesome KC line makes him look even better.

Don't get me wrong - they are talented as all get out, but some aren't superstars until the game plan and the offensive lines align in the proper position with their talents.

Keep in mind that Gibbs won with everything from Joe Washington to John Riggins. The man adapts. I think Trung could be a good back used right. Spurrier often ran Trung up the middle and Betts outside - totally opposite their strengths.... what the hell is that?

And Spurrier almost never tossed the ball in the flat on a designed play to Trung - that is insanity...

WOW.. do I ever agree with that...man BH is going to fine two other if we keep agreeing like this. KC's line is best in football which is why they'll control the ball and beat Indy this weekend. I to would like to see what Trung could do next year. The game has not past Gibbs by it's the same as when he left...You still have to stop the run and run the ball. Your just have to be more creative today about how you get the guys to do this.

I thought Eddie getting into Lewis' grill was classic! Loved it! Lewis is a great player, and I love Eddie's heart...but don't want him either...he's too old and banged up.

I think we need someone like Davis that can handle 25-30 carries a game...I don't think Trung can handle that pounding.
God bless our troops and Joe Gibbs.
We'll miss you, Joe.
