Although its magnitude paled in comparison to a certain NBA player who infamously decided to take his talents to South Beach this fall, the Tennessee Titans made a somewhat controversial call of their own before the start of the NFL season.
The decision I'm talking about is the Titans releasing promising RB LeGarrette Blount only a day or so after the rookie sledgehammer had, for the time being, made the team's final 53-man roster.
As a result of Blount resurfacing and showing some power running ability with the Tampa Bay Bucs and the recent concerns regarding the workload of "Mr. 2,000" himself: Chris Johnson, let's revisit the Titans' decision to part ways with their former running back.
Total Titans will be doing a question and answer exchange again this week, this time with a writer who blogs about the Denver Broncos.
What questions do you have about the Broncos? What would you like to know about this week's game from the other side's perspective?
Please ask your questions in the comments section below and we'll post the Q&A exchange later this week.
Due to a fractured forearm suffered in yesterday's victory over the Giants, Tennessee Titans' starting CB Jason McCourty could be missing in action for next week's matchup with Denver and possibly beyond.
If he's unable to go, there's a talented youngster who has been turning heads since OTAs waiting in the wings.
Similar to the way that he grasped a drive-thwarting fumble recovery against the G-Men, Alterraun Verner's poised to pounce on his opportunity to step up as a starter on Chuck Cecil's tenacious Titan defense.
Last Sunday, the Tennessee Titans were on the wrong end of several costly mistakes that played a key role in their disappointing loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Today, the Titans were able to take advantage of the miscues by the undisciplined New York Giants en route to a 29-10 victory.
Aided by the G-Men's 11 penalties, three turnovers, two missed field goals and for the icing on the cake, a safety; the Titans scored 19 unanswered second-half points to break open what was once a 10-10 contest at intermission.
The list of inactives is out for today's game and includes the following:
LB Rennie Curran, DE Jacob Ford, G Ryan Durant, WR Lavelle Hawkins, OT Mike Otto, S Robert Johnson, S Nick Schommer, QB Rusty Smith
AKA the same list we've seen the previous two weeks, with the expected exception of Hayes in and Ford out. No changes were reported to the starting lineup, so Hayes initially will be a reserve not that the designation matters much.
NEW YORK GIANTS:
WR Ramses Barden, OT Will Beatty, LB Chase Blackburn, WR Duke Calhoun, LB Phillip Dillard, S Michael Johnson, DT Linval Joseph, C Shaun O'Hara
Blackburn was questionable coming into today's game, so he's the only mild surprise. As expected, DE Justin Tuck, the other questionable, is playing, as are all three of the probable players including TE Kevin Boss.
