    I'm in
  2. With the first game of the preseason approaching, it feels like a good time to re-visit this, so here's my second attempt: Offense (25): QB (2): Marcus Mariota, Ryan Tannehill RB (4): Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis, David Fluellen, Jeremy McNichols WR (6): Corey Davis, Adam Humphries, AJ Brown, Taywan Taylor, Tajae Sharpe, Anthony Ratliff-Williams TE (4): Delanie Walker, Jonnu Smith, Anthony Firkser, MyCole Pruitt T (4): Jack Conklin, Dennis Kelly, Tyler Marz, Austin Pasztor IOL (5): Ben Jones, Rodger Saffold, Corey Levin, Kevin Pamphile, Nate Davis Defense (25): DL (5) :Jurrell Casey, DaQuan Jones, Austin Johnson, Brent Urban, Matt Dickerson LB (11) : Rashaan Evans, Jayon Brown, Harold Landry, Cameron Wake, Sharif Finch, Wesley Woodyard, D'Andre Walker, David Long, Darren Bates, Kamalei Correa, Derick Roberson CB (5): Adoree' Jackson, Logan Ryan, Malcolm Butler, LeShaun Sims, Tye Smith S (4): Kevin Byard, Kenny Vaccaro, Amani Hooker, Dand Cruikshank Specialists (3): K (1): Ryan Succop P (1): Brett Kern LS (1): Beau Brinkley PUP/IR/Suspended: Jeffery Simmons, Cameron Batson, Taylor Lewan Players waived since my first projection: Dee Liner (now with LAC), Gimel President (now with Houston) Changes (I'm typing this as I go): Jeremy McNichols has been playing too well not to make this team. Cameron Batson going on IR opens up the sixth WR spot and Ratliff-Williams has been really impressive in camp, I could also see Darius Jennings getting the nod here based on his experience in the league, also worth noting the team listed Jennings as the primary kickoff returner on the initial depth chart. Taylor Lewan's suspension means a different tackle gets a spot for at least a few weeks, that's going to Austin Pasztor. Matt Dickerson and Derick Roberson have also had really impressive camps and play positions where depth is going to be used, so they get a nod here. Hroniss Grasu was my last cut, he was on my last roster but given what we've seen from guys like McNichols, Dickerson, and Roberson I just ran out of spots. Oh, and about my commentary on Sharpe, he's looked good in camp, but he's always looked good in camp, so I'm not counting on him as more than a low end #3 or mid-range #4 receiver, fortunately that's all we need from him.

    I'm in as long as I don't have to run it, and I'm fine with either auction or standard draft, but standard draft is easier to schedule because it's not as long and you're not as screwed if you auto pick

    Womens Sports and Pay Equality in Sports.

    I also think there are two different situations depending on whether you're discussing leagues or international tournaments. If you're in the WNBA you're only going to get money based on what the WNBA brings in, and that's not nearly what the NBA is bringing in, it's the same reason players in the Big 3 league aren't getting paid the same as NBA Players or Arena Football League players aren't making NFL money. But for international tournaments, like the Men's vs. the Women's World Cup, where all of the money is coming out of FIFA's pockets, there's less of a justification for the pay discrepancy.
  5. I think this has become an annual thing for me, but I think it's a cool way to preview your team for the upcoming season. The thread title says it all, but I'll explain anyway, list out your team's top candidate for each end of season award, it doesn't matter whether the player has any shot at winning the award, just list who you think has the best chance, hopefully with a bit of explanation as necessary. Here are my picks for the Titans: MVP: Marcus Mariota - QB is definitely the easy answer given that the MVP is almost always a QB, so maybe this is a cop-out answer, but if the Titans are going to do anything this season it'll be on the back of Mariota taking a huge step forward. OPOTY: Corey Davis - There are actually a few options here, there's the obvious take the QB option, I also considered Derrick Henry here because he'll be the feature back and if he can build on the last month of 2018 he'll be a contender, but ultimately I'm going with Davis because he's been balling out in training camp and I think he's primed for a third season breakout after quietly putting together a really good season last year. DPOTY: Kevin Byard - for once this isn't just plug in Jurrell Casey and move on, though I did think about listing him, I also considered a few of our linebackers, Rashaan Evans came on strong late last season and could build on that and Jayon Brown has emerged as one of the better LBs in coverage in the league, but I don't think they'll put up the numbers to be in contention. Byard leads the league in interceptions over the last two seasons and is poised to be the leader of a defense that I think is going to surprise a lot of people. CBPOTY: Delanie Walker - This is the one I could actually see happening, he's been a top 5 TE when healthy and looks to be healthy in training camp, if he regains form after missing last season he has to at least be in the conversation. OROTY: AJ Brown - I could see this happen if he gets a lot of open looks with defenses focused on Davis, Walker, and Adam Humphries, although he is dealing with an injury in camp, which makes this less likely, but there really isn't another candidate for this award. Nate Davis is a dark horse if he wins the RG spot, but it's hard to imagine an olineman winning this award. DROTY: Amani Hooker - Similar to Brown, this one comes from a lack of other options with Jeffery Simmons likely to miss a significant portion of the season, he's at best the third safety on the team and the top two signed big contracts this offseason, but we do run a lot of three safety sets and Hooker could turn into our primary slot defender, which he excelled at in college. I don't expect any other rookies to get substantial playing time on the defensive side.

    Top 100 NFL Players of 2019

    They released the top ten in alphabetical order yesterday, order to be revealed tonight. Here's the list: Tom Brady Drew Brees Antonio Brown Aaron Donald Todd Gurley Julio Jones Khalil Mack Patrick Mahomes Von Miller Aaron Rodgers So Kevin Byard is not on the list at all, easily the biggest snub of this list.

    Surprised I haven't seem Kevin Byard yet, he's either making a huge jump from last season (he was #80) or he'll be the biggest snub by a longshot

    Top 100 NFL Players of 2019

    He had one great month last year but those 4 games accounted for about 1/2 of his yardage for the season. He's a solid back with tons of talent, but he needs to show a lot more consistency before I'd put him in the top 100.

    Top 100 NFL Players of 2019

    Jurrell Casey is way too low, but I guess for the team it's balanced out by the fact that Derrick Henry shouldn't be anywhere near this list

    Titans vs. who gives a shit Seriously, Patriots vs. Rams feels like a pretty safe bet

    2019 TGP Mock Draft (Discussion Thread/Sign-ups)

    My draft for the Titans: #19: Ed Oliver - Actual Draft #9 #43: Garrett Bradbury - Actual Draft #18 #88: Terrill Hanks - Actual Draft Undrafted, signed with Miami #157: Gardner Minshew - Actual Draft #178 #233: DeVonte Dedmon - Actual Draft Undrafted, unsigned as far as I can tell So out of five I got two top 20 picks, two undrafted players (one of which was fully expected) and one right around where I drafted, I'd say that balances out to thoroughly mediocre, which is what I usually aim for in this
  12. This is always a fun thread to keep up with over the off-season, now that we're through the draft most of the pieces should be in place, so what do you think your team is going to look like in September? Here's my stab at the Titans: Offense (25): QB (2): Marcus Mariota, Ryan Tannehill RB (3): Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis, David Fluellen WR (6): Corey Davis, Adam Humphries, AJ Brown, Taywan Taylor, Cameron Batson, Tajae Sharpe TE (4): Delanie Walker, Jonnu Smith, Anthony Firkser, MyCole Pruitt T (4): Taylor Lewan, Jack Conklin, Dennis Kelly, Tyler Marz IOL (6): Ben Jones, Rodger Saffold, Corey Levin, Kevin Pamphile, Nate Davis, Hroniss Grasu Defense (25): DL (5): Jurrell Casey, DaQuan Jones, Austin Johnson, Brent Urban, Dee Liner LB (11): Rashaan Evans, Jayon Brown, Harold Landry, Cameron Wake, Sharif Finch, Wesley Woodyard, D'Andre Walker, David Long, Darren Bates, Kamalei Correa, Gimel President CB (5): Adoree' Jackson, Logan Ryan, Malcolm Butler, LeShaun Sims, Tye Smith S (4): Kevin Byard, Kenny Vaccaro, Amani Hooker, Dand Cruikshank Specialists (3): K (1): Ryan Succop P (1): Brett Kern LS (1): Beau Brinkley After looking it over, we could definitely stand to add some depth to the defensive backfield, I wouldn't be surprised to see us bring in a depth piece there at the expense of a LB or WR (maybe it's time to give up on Sharpe?) but overall the team looks pretty damn good. You also might notice our first round pick, Jeffery Simmons, is missing, I'm expecting he'll start the season on IR because of his injury during draft prep with the hope that we'll be able to take him off late in the season and work him in.

    The Superhero Thread

    Just got back from seeing Endgame, here's my spoiler free reaction:

    2019 TGP Mock Draft (Discussion Thread/Sign-ups)

    So my first and second round picks were both gone by the Titans first pick in the actual draft, I think that means I did well
  15. I guess I got skipped? Didn't realize I was up but my guy's still on the board so here goes: With the 233rd pick the Tennessee Titans select: DeVonte Dedmon, WR, William & Mary Pure homer pick, I'm not even sure he'll sign somewhere undrafted, probably a training camp or practice squad body at most, but we need a receiver and I'd rather take a guy I know
