Some Titans' radio talk and character issues
I've heard some good post-draft talk on Nashville sports talk radio the last few days. Jeff Fisher was on at least three separate times on Monday, including a hour-long special. As usual, he claimed the Titans were very happy with the players they drafted and that every position of need was addressed.
One encouraging thing he did say was that the Titans didn't consider Chris Johnson to be just a running back. He indicated the Titans were going to use him in a variety of ways, including splitting him out as a wide receiver, to get the ball in his hands multiple times per game. Fish also made a statement that Vince Young had been in town this spring far more than most people realized, he had spent a lot of time with Mike Heimerdinger and they were very excited about the offense.
Johnson was on briefly but didn't say much that I recall. He did say he didn't want to replace anybody but just wanted to contribute to help the Titans win some games. He seemed to have a good attitude.
One guy with a great attitude was second-round pick Jason Jones. He's an articulate, well-spoken and intelligent man. Jones had nothing but praise for the organization, Jim Washburn, KVB, Albert and Jevon.
Frank Wycheck was talking about the third-round pick, TE Craig Stevens. Wycheck said he had been working with him at a local training facility and had some good things to say about him.
I also got to hear an interview with the Winston-Salem coach of William Hayes. He was another well-spoken man and had nothing but praise for his former player, saying the Titans had selected a very fine player and a good person.
I'm sure there was more radio talk than that mentioned above, which I missed.
From listening to these interviews, it doesn't like there is anybody with any "character issues" in the group. Wonder if the Titans are being particular about that or if it's just a coincidence?
