New reciever coach hired..

The Tennessee Titans hired Ray Sherman as wide receivers coach Friday.

Sherman spent the last five seasons with the Green Bay Packers. He replaces Steve Walters, who left to join the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said Walters first agreed to a two-year contract with Tennessee. But the Jaguars offered Walters a chance to rejoin old friend Carl Smith, who was hired as offensive coordinator.

``It's rare when you can give a guy an opportunity like that,'' Fisher said. ``I felt what Steve had given to this program and the type of person he is that he would be deserving of that opportunity. Does that mean each time something like this come up, will I approach it the same way? No.''

Walters told Fisher of his decision Thursday, and Fisher immediately asked Green Bay for permission to talk to Sherman. The men worked together with the San Francisco 49ers in 1992 and 1993.

Fisher said the Titans are finalizing a deal to retain defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who interviewed for the head coaching job in San Francisco and had been mentioned as a candidate for openings in Miami and Cleveland.
Hopefully Sherman will be able to spark up Mason and Bennet. But only time will tell, stay fit in the off season Titans, we really need to improve coming into next season. GO TITANS!

Things to Address

The Titans have tried to groom returners in recent years, and it hasn't worked. In 2004 the team finished 32nd in punt return average, and 30th in kick returns. The problem, for the most part, has been the returner.

Rookies Michael Waddell and Troy Fleming, along with Jason McAddley, had opportunities in '04 and either had trouble catching the football or hitting the holes. None of the three had much experience as a returner before doing so with the Titans. The Titans will likely target a quality return man this offseason and add him to the roster in '05.

We are the Titans...

A season of mis-haps, injuries, and let downs. The Titans finished at 5-11 this year and are left bewildered.
"We won our first game and won our last," said Volek "But it was pretty ugly in between."
Back up quaterback Volek is right, everything in the middle was pretty ugly, their where times I had to turn off the T.V.

Then on top of that, here is some icing on the cake for you, McNair is among one of the veterans on the team that might not be back next year. The list has names like OT Brad Hopkins, OT Fred Miller, DE Kevin Carter, WR Derrick Mason, and even CB Samari Rolle. Of course, this would all be to make room under the salary cap for 05'.

Lets hope what happens next isn't what happened in Niner town.
