Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

These occasional chats about Peyton and the Titans is rather silly, but does fill some radio talk time or print for those that do these things. First, Peyton is a true asset to UT Football and has been a real trooper on trips and advice up there. As to Nashville and the Titans, that interest has never been shown and I suspect never will be. There would be a true shortage of local prospects
that could afford to purchase the Titans, unless the Mayor buys it with the
City taxpayer funding.

Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

If moving to LA was a good thing the Raiders would not have moved back to Oakland.
Things I see on the field but not being a professional maybe I'm out of line to mention them: Even before all the injuries the pocket seemed to collapse quicker than most other teams, leaving close quarters to throw the ball. Annnd, in a lot of games it looked like the defensive backs couldn't wrap up a cheerleader. Annnd, it's most likely Locker's last year with the Titans, which has the potential to be a huge mistake. Some day he'll quit getting hurt, they ought to keep him.

Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

I'm glad to see someone from the local media take our absentee ownership group to task for their lack of commitment to this community. I haven't watched a Titans game all year and won't until we have local ownership like the Preds

Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

Love the Lazarus, Jackson, Johnson and Polk references!
Have to admit that Titan games were once a must-watch event for me, but I probably won't bother with tonight's game.
When a woman can watch an NFL game and tell that the players look like a high school team, there's something so very wrong that the team probably needs to scrap everyone and start totally fresh.
I think I could be an assistant coach and they'd do as well. Will work for a lot less than the current staff.

Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

Very odd article. So the current owner has no intention of moving or selling the team, is making money hand over fist like every other NFL owner, yet the team is at risk for moving to Los Angeles? How? Many teams have ownership groups without local ties. Take it from a fan of a team that was actually at risk of moving to Los Angeles (the Bills), the Titans have a nice stadium and a wealthy fan base in a chic American city and an owner with no intention to sell: you're fine. If this article said that an ownership change is necessary for the team to improve, then I would be more inclined to agree.

Re: “UT and Vandy face off this weekend with nothing on the line — and everything

Vanderbilt under Coach Franklin improved to mediocre -- its bowl game eligibility having been enhanced by playing non-SEC patsies. It seems that now we are back to the days when Belle Meade city police issue Vanderbilt tickets to traffic offenders. (Multiple offenders get season tickets.)

Re: “For the murderous final stretch of a bad season, Vanderbilt should have fun and expect to almost win

Vanderbilt football is terrible and might not win a SEC game this year or next. Tiny head coach, tiny stadium, even smaller fan base, even smaller history of success.

Why do they have a team?

Re: “Worse than bad, this season's Titans are slouching toward insignificance

Everyone should have know this was going to be a bad year for the Titans. We changed coaching staff, entire defensive scheme, released Rob Bironas & QB journeyman Fitzpatrick among other issues. I see hope in the way Mettenberger played yesterday, despite what anyone else thinks. We can turn this around and return to the Titans of old who never lost at home and were once the loudest stadium in the NFL. Get behind the team and not trash talking them for some things that are beyond their control. I'm never giving up my seat at LP Field. The team has my full support.

Re: “After the beloved Titans kicker's tragic death, details of his last hours make us wonder about his life

He had tried out for the Lions a few days before his death, but do we know if
he had been given a yes or no answer or not at the time of his death? One of three they brought in for try outs.

He hit a sixty yard field goal to beat Indy one year when Peyton played for them.

Re: “After the beloved Titans kicker's tragic death, details of his last hours make us wonder about his life

Rob was a great kicker. I had a nickname for him, Bir-Money. He was money, the fourth most accurate kicker ever in the NFL. A lot of people, a lot of good people lose their mind when they think they've been cut-off in traffic. It's sad that he let his temper get the best of him, but he is not unusual or alone in this conduct. Thoughts and prayers for the family.

Whatever his "demons" where the last night of his life. I will remember him fondly for the many times his kicks made me jump for Joy as he would win a game with "that right leg"! It is time to honor him and provide support to his grieving widow.
