Thread: Did we screw over the Titans in '09?

  1. #21
    Britt is a screwball but I put equal blame on the organization. The Tittens are scumbags from the top down.

    Hopefully we can groom Ross into the Heir Apparent for our own GM position after Reese wants to move on...

    Another thing I noticed about that draft: Heyward Bey and Crabtree were picked before Nicks, Maclin, Britt, and Harvin....crazy
    I don't think anyone got screwed over. As I recall that draft, Nicks was highly regarded but Britt, Heyward Bey and Crabtree were all considered top picks. JR did a nice job in getting Hakeem for us. Still, the draft is still an inexact science. That is why we have scouts.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    DHB and Crabtree would be beasts and top 5 WR with Eli throwing the football.

    A friend of mine who interned with the Titans at the time said the Titans definitely had Britt higher than Nicks; they liked his ability to stretch the field vertically. It's tough to guage with his injury history and their lack of quarterback stability. Look at the receivers that have done well from that class and you'll see QB play had a ton to do with it.

    Harvin went to the Pro Bowl as a rookie with Favre as his QB. Nicks has had Eli. Maclin had McNabb and Vick.

    DHB had...? Who was there before Palmer? Russell? Crabtree had the early Alex Smith years. Britt has had Locker, the twilight of Hasselbeck, and someone else I can't quite place. After Smith settled into an offense, Crabtree started to play like the pick he was.
