Up for Debate: Titans in the draft

Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 12:02am

What do you predict the Titans will do in the upcoming NFL draft? Of the past draft picks, which have turned out to be the biggest letdowns?

Biggest let-down? Pac-Man Jones.

Now 'et's talk about important stuff--what is your favourite colour?

KoshIII - Titan1 would argue with you on that one. He lavished so much praise on spitman, it was sickening.

For the draft, too bad it isn't for a new head coach. That is one thing the Titans desperately need.

It does not matter who that pick, Bud will screw it up.

Now how will Rasputin turn this into about himself?

yogi I will be back to Gordsonville again today. Lunch?

Good morning, Nashville.

What do you predict the Titans will do in the upcoming NFL draft? Of the past draft picks, which have turned out to be the biggest letdowns?

I have no idea what the Titans will do in the NFL draft and I have no idea as to who was the biggest disappointment in Titan history.

With all the emphasis on preventing brain damage from sports-related concussions, the pool of talented college football players will shrink over time....the quality of play in the NFL will then decline markedly....advertisers may find other vehicles to promote their products and services....without the mothers milk of advertising dollars, the NFL will eventually wither away and go out with a whimper, not a bang.

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 8:31

Loner - Not likely!

By: Jughead on 4/25/13 at 8:36

Who cares?

I love sports but it continues to amaze me that anyone would pay serious money to watch the Titans. Perennial losers, boring football, drunken and obnoxious fans, and overpriced concessions.

I'd rather go to the dang Frist Museum on Sunday afternoon. Then, next door for a beer and TV to watch real football teams play.

By: Jughead on 4/25/13 at 8:37

Nimrod: Please tell me you work at least one afternoon per week between Tenncare oxy-seeking appointments.

By: yogiman on 4/25/13 at 8:44

Sorry, dumba$$; I have a man coming over to help me with a project I have going. And I can't comprehend why I would want to meet someone who doesn't know what a decent word is when provoking someone.

As I posted yesterday, you come with bfra and I'll make sure I meet you. I'd like someone to look me in the face when calling me a liar.

You two could come and lie together then.

Hey, it's fun kicking the football stuff around...but if kicking the Haslam family's sorry-assed butts around sounds like more fun, then post a comment here:

Sounds like a meeting of conspirators....the tin-foil hat boys...everybody bring an old pressure cooker.

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 9:00

Yep! yogi would have to copy everything, because he has never come up with an original yet. He can't even put a response together with out using soneone else's words.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/25/13 at 9:16

yogi you won't see me alone, yet you will face bfra and me together. Name the place, yogi.

This should light the fuse of the collective city-paper Kotex.

Are you one of them, Loner? You seem to know a lot about them.... just wondering, of course.

Maybe you could teach me how to blow something other than how you blow your nose. Or could it be that gas coming out of your "backside"? Did bfra teach you that or are you on dope with Barry?

By: Captain Nemo on 4/25/13 at 9:20

Loner, it dose (sic) sound suspicious. LOL

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 9:23

yogi can't post a comment that doesn't have a lie about something or someone. It is usually a dopehead that accuses other people of being one. So far yogi has accused just about everyone on the board.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/25/13 at 9:24

Ben, I noticed the Spiderman carton with it. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 4/25/13 at 9:27

I’m leaving for Gordonsville, yogi. I will give you a shout if I see you out and about

Yogi comes out: Maybe you could teach me how to blow something other than how you blow your nose.

Yogi, there are a few gay piano bars in the Nashville area...(ask Jug)....I suggest that you sashay into one of them and ask the patrons that same question.

By: Loner on 4/25/13 at 9:41

HTML flubbadub....s/h/b: Yogi comes out: "Maybe you could teach me how to blow something other than how you blow your nose."

I failed to Italianize the quote....mea culpa.

By: yogiman on 4/25/13 at 9:43

Don't go to Nashville unless I'm going in for a operation, Loner. I'll have to accept it you know so much about the gay bars over there.

By: yogiman on 4/25/13 at 9:48

What dope are you on, bfra? You only seem to know how to call someone a liar but you never offer any evidence you're right. Or are you just addlepated bad, perhaps ?

Slipper slope? Ah...you know what I meant....nobody's human.

By: BenDover on 4/25/13 at 10:06

I cannot believe a 'Slippery Slope' is not the name of a well known drink recipe.

The one at the link I posted needs a lot of help I think.

You'd think it would be very potent but taste very mild... like a LIT.

By: Kosh III on 4/25/13 at 10:08

Here is real issue; one that's outrageous

What did you expect, Kosh? They are not going to foist that huge load of horse dung on themselves.

By: Loner on 4/25/13 at 10:22

Thanks for the correction, Ben, the name, Slippery Slope, has been claimed, as you so ably demonstrated. I applaud the alluring alliteration...and the allegorical allusion/allusional allegory you alluded to.

I miss Slacker...what's up with the Slack?

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 10:31

Loner - Slacker is probably in FL & for some reason, he doesn't comment when down there.

By: Loner on 4/25/13 at 10:31

Kosh...from the site that you cited:

There is concern in some quarters that the provision requiring lawmakers and staffers to join the exchanges, if it isn’t revised, could lead to a “brain drain” on Capitol Hill, as several sources close to the talks put it.

Sounds oxymoronic...a "brain drain" in the Congress?

Brains are not a prerequisite to being a federal lawmaker....an ability and willingness to play the special interest's donation game is the only prerequisite....those guys & gals are all on the take to special interests....now they want to exempt themselves from their own handiwork....git a rope!

By: Loner on 4/25/13 at 10:34

These health care "reforms" should start at the pinnacles of power...not at the bottom of the pyramid of power...same goes for drug testing and a myriad of other nanny-state BS legislation.....let those who crafted the millstone be the first to put it around their necks.

By: Loner on 4/25/13 at 10:35

Thanks, Bfra...I'm the same way when I go for my Summer Retreat...I go on a posting fast.

By: Loner on 4/25/13 at 10:48

Oh yeah, good hair, good teeth and a good tailor are also prerequisites for service in the US Congress....how could I have forgotten that?

Mitt Romney had it all....but when people got a good look at his backers, they shied away. They drew the line with Sheldon Adelsen.... Sheldon over-stepped the line.

Here's Shelly:

Excellent video expose of this creep....imagine that guy dictating US policy to the POTUS.

By: yogiman on 4/25/13 at 11:06

Loner,

The government proves my argument for requirements to vote for someone. I repeat: Why should anyone running for a political office spend millions more (that they get through "donations") than the job pays?

I feel anyone running for the President's office should be restricted to receiving "donations" only from American citizens. Those running for the Senate should not be allowed to accept "donations" from any source except an American citizen of the State they are seeking to represent and the Representative should be restricted to receiving "donations" only from American citizens who live in the County they are seeking to represent.

For the inferior Supreme Court to decide it was acceptable for anyone to receive donations [basically] anywhere on this earth confirms the members of the Supreme Court should be elected, not appointed for that office on term limits.

The Supreme Court has become a political office instead of decision makes of matters concerning the constitutional.

By: yogiman on 4/25/13 at 11:29

Loner,

Have you ever looked up the way the votes went between Romney and Barry? Have you ever wondered how many Barry got that weren't legal votes?

Politics often makes an honest man wonder what integrity means.

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 11:43

yogi - Where is your PROOF Obama got any votes that weren't legal? Where is your PROOF that Obama smokes pot? You always spout your LIES but never any PROOF!

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 12:07

Where is the PROOF yogi? You like to run your mouth with LIES, but can never offer any PROOF. Where is the PROOF yogi?

By: dargent7 on 4/25/13 at 12:20

I read, and re-read all these posts. Not ONE deals with the freekin' question of the day....the Titans.
Adams won't pay, and you get what you pay for. A 4th rate team.

By: dargent7 on 4/25/13 at 12:30

Speaking of OFF-Topic: All 5 "living" Presidents were on hand to dedicate the George W. Bush presidential Library....to vomit, read what they all said about georgie-boy....calling him "a good man.."
And georgie called Dickless Cheney, "a good friend".
Sickening.

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 12:31

d7 - Not much can be said about the Titans. A new owner, new coach & new QB might create some interest.

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 12:33

d7 - Agree with your Bush comment. Too bad they didn't say what they probably really thought about the ole boy.

By: yogiman on 4/25/13 at 12:34

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, dargent7, and politician will say any thing that will come out of their mouth and make an impression on anyone.

By: bfra on 4/25/13 at 12:36

yogi - So you think d7 is beautiful, sick. Now back up your lies with some PROOF.
