    Titans Updates: Eddie George vs. Chris Brown

    from 4for4.com

    06JUL04 Nashville City Paper: Titans #4 WR - Jake Schifino vs. Eddie Berlin and Darrell Hill. Tyrone Calico , who moves up to #3, had 18 receptions out of this spot a year ago. And while that is just over one catch a game, the tandem of Schifino, Berlin and Hill has just 4 career receptions between them. Schifino might be the frontrunner here based on potential, but he has had trouble staying healthy and must become a more precise route runner to get on the field. Those are the same obstacles that plagued Justin McCareins early, but he managed conquer them and became a reliable target. Berlin is the most polished of the three, but at 5-11, goes against the trend of bigger WRs that Tennessee has gravitated toward in recent years. Hill is probably the dark horse in the race, but is one of the fastest players on the team, and that can never be discounted.

    06JUL04 Nashville City Paper: Titans #2 TE - Shad Meier vs. Ben Troupe. Because of injuries and the presence of Frank Wycheck and Erron Kinney , Meier has shown just occasional flashes of success in his first 3 seasons in Tennessee. Now, Meier is on the spot as much as any Titan this training camp to prove himself worthy of playing time. With Wycheck retired, Kinney is locked in as the main TE. However, Meier must show enough in training camp and preseason to give the Titans a reason not to just plug the rookie Troupe in right away. Kinney just signed a new four- year deal, and Troupe, with Shannon Sharpe-type potential, is the long-term future at the position, meaning that '04 is a make or break year for Meier to impress.

    06JUL04 Nashville City Paper: Eddie George vs. Chris Brown. Assuming George returns to the Titans, 2 things can be ascertained at the RB position. First, George will get the first crack at retaining the starting spot. George hasn't piled up the numbers of previous years in recent seasons, but after 8 years in the NFL, Titans coach Jeff Fisher has told George he will get his carries if he shows himself worthy. The other part of that equation is Brown, who shows flashes of being a big-time playmaker, and most certainly will cut into George's carry load. The bigger question to be answered might not be resolved until the regular season, if the running game gets off to a slow September start again. If that happens, the Titans may be forced to reassess the George/Brown situation, revising how the carries are divvied up, maybe even on a week-to-week basis.

    06JUL04 Nashville Tennessean on Steve Mcnair : Titans QB McNair is expected in court this morning as motions are scheduled to be heard in his ongoing DUI case. McNair's attorney, Roger May, said yesterday discussions with the district attorney's office about reaching a settlement in the case haven't been productive over the last several weeks. As a result, Judge Cheryl Blackburn is expected to hear testimony and arguments from both sides beginning at 9 a.m. in Criminal Court, Division III.

    I'd take the best 2 of Dane Looker, Kevin Curtis, Mike Furrey & Shawn McDonald over those guys any day of the week.

    Agreed. The Titans' wide receivers (behind Mason) aren't very impressive, but the tight end duo of Erron Kinney and Ben Troupe is intriguing.
