Titans Discussion

13 posts in this topic

I'm starting a general Titans thread. Feel free to discuss anything pertaining to the Titans team & organization.

 

To start things off -- with all the rumors about ownership, what are your concerns?

I'd love to get local ownership. As a Preds fan, I feel like the biggest obstacle we overcame as a city was getting rid of an outside and honestly uncaring ownership. I would love to see the Titans be sold to a local owner. Even with the lease lasting into the 2020s, I am concerned at the prospect of outside ownership. What stake do they have in the city? When the lease is up, will they demand a new billion and a half dollar stadium? Are the owners in the business of football, or in the business of football in Nashville?

I am sure this discussion will get killed since it is in the Coffee House   But I would love if the Titans could have ownership like the Predators. All of the threats of moving to a new city for them a few years ago, but the new owners came in and drastically changed that team. I don't think a local group could afford it like the Predators situation, but it would just be nice to someone that wanted to keep them here. I do think they will want a new stadium once the lease runs out. That is just what teams do now.

Since our stadium is not enclosed, we have room / open air at each endzone to add a retractable roof. We could add suites and renovate existing suites / other amenities and the stadium would be just as good for half the price.

I would like the Ingrams or the Frists to buy the team... with Peyton Manning and Eddie George in the FO.

Agreed. I don't think local ownership solves everything, but many times, local owners are more committed to the team. There's that little element of civic pride that makes them want to work with the city and the fans. A lot of the improvements with the Preds and Bridgestone have been initiated by the Preds, not pressured by the city. Right now, I don't think Titans ownership has a good relationship with the fans. In fact, I'd go as far as to say the relationship is poor, because the fans have no confidence in the ownership.

With the number of teams that are demanding new stadiums, I think if we could get by with a heavy renovation and something like the addition of a retractable roof, we should do it. That investment could lead to A) an extended lease with the Titans and B) the opportunity to host other events (NCAA Men's Sweet 16/Final Four, Superbowl, and year-round mega concerts).

I'm ecstatic for 6 wins; I love the trimming of the fat and wasted draft picks by our new GM.

I'm thinking our offense wins 8 games and the defense loses 8.

yea i see 8 wins. Our new GM has a no bs policy and anybody not puttin in work gets cut. I love it. Derrick Henry is a beast. Excited for Mariota this year also.

 

But I wonder when these new players come here, what do they think of the city...mhmm.

Somewhere between 5-8 wins.  Improvement...but still not ready for playoffs.

I think payers like the city. A lot of players stay on after retirement and if we have any kind of decent team, we tend to get good free agents. Especially if they are ex SEC players. Nashville is close enough to their home.

We suck so bad. We desperately need receivers and Mariota throws an interception/turnover or get sacked like every play. And he holds the ball wayyyyy to long. Need to fire mularkey asap.
