To be honest when you said we were all in on Conklin prior to the gas mask video of Laremy dumb dumb...I thought that was borderline ridiculous. But a few hours later I actually heard Jon Robinson say as much in the press conference so that checked out in my eyes...had me there.

The one thing that right now I can criticize was Billings and a bunch of the other Day 2 names you said to watch out for... when you consider JRob and Mularkey said they already had Austin Johnson circled on the draft board...Billings doesn't make much sense at that point. But that doesn't mean he's full of it at all. Im sure when teams target a guy like Austin Johnson they keep a lid on it. Theres always deception going on and an inner circle gets the real info and the outsiders get misinformation. Or it could be confabulation based on who we where working out and interviewing versus who we might be going after in his mind. The reason I think this is a possibility is the names are wrong but the positions kinda match up with who we drafted...

Were those day 2 names from the guy of the guy or was that your assessment based on what he told you?

I think he's definitely credible. If it was JRob himself the picture we get would be different than what actually occurs because JRob would be telling us what he thinks one day...not was is actually occurring the next. These things tend to fly by the seat of their pants and is always changing day to day. Your guys is probably friends of people partially in the know so that makes it even harder to determine. But anything you get is welcomed by me.


Yeah. I personally think he is credible. There has been other stuff he has passed on, and it's turned out to be true and i just kinda kept it to myself but "the guy" that gets stuff from "the guy" normally gives a validity meter, for lack of better term. Stuff he feels strongly on and stuff he kinda has a feel for, if that makes sense.

Like after Reynolds visited, he said he observed Murlakey coaching him up personally and seemed to really like him. That was more opinion based than "Ayers about to be traded."

But little more detail about the info transaction.
I work with "the guy" and I asked him if he heard anything from the other "guy." He said "naw anything you want to know in particular?"

Normally "the guy" will normally text my co-worker with information cause he knows he is a huge Titans fan and they kinda friends.
This time though I had specific questions and he tried to answer them.
I ask.
"Did they want Tunsil at all?"
"Why trade up for Conklin?"
"What they gonna do in the 2nd round?"

Maybe he stretched for the 2nd round? lol

I don't truly know what "the guy of the guy" does with the Titans. I concluded he is in PR or at the least with the training staff in some capacity.
Training staff you'd have to observe the players, talk to them and then be able to ask the coaches or give the coaches information.

As I type this...I'm starting to lean toward Training staff....
So what if he thought the Titans liked those guys in the 2nd round because coaches were asking him specifically that day for medical information about them????
"Hey...The guy (Lol)....can you give me the medicals again for Billings, Alexander, Howard, Fuller..etc?"

Hmmmm..lol

Anywho. When I get something from him I'll be sure to share. Smile

Rumors can reveal alot true or not. We targeted Austin Johnson...I can guarantee you they did their homework on every other guy at that position because they obviously felt strongly in that need. They have backup plans when they feel such a strong need at a position. The draft is unpredictable so you almost have to. So you could easily get the wrong idea there unless you were in the inner circle...which would probably consist of 3 people... Mularkey and Robinson and your scouting director. If he was the QB coach you would get one view RB coach another etc etc. They wont advertise the guys they are targeting.

The other thing about Billings name that leads me to believe he is working in someones office maybe...Billings fell hard this draft...teams talk and share certain information..."What did you hear about Jacks knee." "How is Jaylon coming along..." blah blah blah. Its still poker but they're sharing information that is important but won't effect their bottom line. Professional courtesies...so his fall was probably precipitated by something possibly medical related teams share the info we will look into it regardless if Austins our guy or not.

The DeMarco Murray thing for example...nobody saw that coming. If he were to say we were looking at Jonathon Stewart going price...nobody would of believed him. Then all of a sudden we get Demarco and the players wrong but the idea of going after a big name running back is the part thats important. Did we target Jonathon Stewart? Maybe we did maybe we didn't...maybe we just called to see what they would take for him so we could negotiate with Philly for DeMarco and use that as a starting point.

If I may give a piece of advise to you...just for scientific sake...we should keep a detailed journal of everything this guys says...and after a while we could see what hit and what didn't and we might even be able figure out his role in the organization. Injuries...depth chart issues...offseason moves. The whole shabang.

The guy of the guy has risen from the ashes to deliver a nugget and opinion.


Nugget:
Team is shopping Justin Hunter. Seeing if they can find a taker to believe in his potential for a late round pick. (Looking at you San Diego, who just lost Stevie Johnson for season.)


Opinion:
Like that has been reported, Tajae Sharpe is real deal. He has met and exceeded the coaches expectations and will (in his opinion) start over DGB.

RBs he likes to make the team: Murray, Henry, McCluster, Sankey.

IMO both Hunter and Sankey could be had for a late round pick.

Sankey is the different back compared to the rest of the crew. Andrews and Cobb are both plodders.
I don't know if Cobb has Practice Squad eligibility, maybe sneak him through there?

Andrews just doesn't have a place to me.

Not a hit to the team if Cobb leaves the guy still eats bad parties every night in the off season not that he's gotten in trouble but just looking at his snap chat then seeing McBrides you's can see why McBride is having a good camp and why Cobbs just another guy

They must have embarrassing video of Mularkey, Robuskie and the video guy in Mularley's office dancing to Beyonce's "all the single ladies". Embarassed Shocked

To me, Hunter, Sankey, and Cobb are all on the outside looking in. If they can get anything for any of them, I'd take it.

Cobb, having only 1 accrued season (if that), is eligible for PS, and think he's destined for it at least to start the season (included that in my 53-man roster post).

My argument against Cobb is that he doesn't offer anything that Murray or Henry don't already give us. With the 3rd and 4th RBs (if it even gets to the 4th RB), you want something different.

At this point, I honestly don't know what Sankey offers us as a 4th RB. He's not particularly fast... isn't a pass blocking specialist... isn't a short yard specialist... so what exactly does he give us? I wonder if the Wyatt article that came out earlier today was a fluff piece to try and generate at least a little value in him. RBs in today's market are a dime a dozen...

I think both Sankey and Cobb could have 7th round trade value to a team who maybe losses a RB in preseason. If not then I personally would keep Sanky. He's different then both Henry and Murray. Cobb is just a fat kid. and he could still end up on the PS.

I don't get why we would trade Sankey.. He got benched for what it seems like no reason by Whiz. Seemed to play well in the preseason and in the TB game.


Id rather have Sankey over Dex Andrews and Cobb. I see no reason for Cobb and Andrews now after trading for Murray and drafting DH.

Hunter being traded I can see. I still think my dude can be a solid deep threat as he flashed in his rookie season. I'd rather keep him as a 5th or 6th guy but if we do trade him Pls god don't send the poor guy to SD and stick him with fkn Whiz again. Laughing

I doubt McCluster is going anywhere. He will be our 3rd and long back a lot of times. I don't think we need a 4th RB active honestly. The only way they would get any reps is if either Henry or Murray was hurt, and if that's the case we could easily sign some other teams practice squad player or bring up one of our own and we wouldn't miss a beat. They're too expendable and they offer no more, if not less, on special teams than another tight end, linebacker, or defensive back.

I wonder if keeping Fowler will affect how many RBs we take?

I agree with you here. As far as Im concerned Fowler is that 4th RB and a FB. Lets save that spot for a player that plays ST.
