    its weird how anemic this offense looks watching games but the stats say it is explosive. Drakes of course got inflated from that big run at the end of the game Monday

    Which games were bad besides the Panthers and Jets? He had games last year post-trade that were as bad or worse than those two.

    Because he hasn't been good. He's been averaging about 3.5 yards per carry until the Q4 on Sunday.

    He's not been the 4th best RB in the league has he? Even his Mom thinks he's been bad.

    We all saw it. We also can not deny his stats have gone way up since they significantly reduced outside runs. He seems to have received the message from what we all saw. It was a combination of both coach and player.

    With that said, take away the huge run (and we shouldn’t) he would still be top 10 in the league in rushing yards and TDs.

    I'm a Drake fan. I liked him at Miami. I was a fan of the trade. He was good last year. I said before the Cowboys game that I expected him to put it right.

    I still think he's been more bad than good so far. There wouldn't have been so much talk of starting Edmonds otherwise. But I think it's behind him now.

    He fills a role, that’s all.

    I don't even think I would go that far. I would say that he has been inconsistent.

    I was saying it early in the season, when everyone was clamoring for Edmonds...The play calls for each runner were different...The calls for Drake were outside zone runs, but the holes weren't always there and he'd get bounced way to far outside...While most/all of the running calls for Edmonds were between the guards, find the hole and go. When Drake would get 2 or 3 of those in each game, he was picking up 5+. I think if they can call more of these plays for him, consistently, it may open up the zone calls on the outside a few times a game.

    If you take away all Kenyans great runs he's terrible!

    And if my aunt had nuts she would be my uncle.

    If you take off glasses, you go back to being short-sighted.

    Titans just aren’t a glamor team. NFL Network is right.
