Up for Debate: Titans fire Chris Palmer

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 12:14am

Are you shocked at the Tennessee Titans' decision to fire offensive coordinator Chris Palmer Monday evening? Do you think it's a good move for the team? What other changes should be made, and are there others you think should have been made before this one?

pswindle - IMO it wouldn't matter. If Bud doesn't let the coaches do their job, without his input as to who to hire & how to play, the Titans will never be any better.

C'mon gd, really?

Those were the convenient rationalizations that the Tennessean helped with.

Those names are as portable as Raspy's knapsack; and a winning team would be foolish to leave without them.

Tennessee Taders. Nashville No-wins.

I got it - Tennessee Taxdodgers!

Yeah, really, Ben. Is everything a conspiracy to you?

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 11:03

LOL, Bn...Tennessee Tax-Dodgers....very fitting....in the land of moonshine and tea-bags.

By: BenDover on 11/27/12 at 11:08

Sometimes it's astounding to me how you miss so many things that are clearly evident, gd.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 11:10

LOL, Ben!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 11:14


There's a reddit for that.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/27/12 at 11:21

If it is 2+2, then you can bet the monk found it in the city dump.

Tennessee Trash is found in Florida.

More like his neighbor's garage, Nemo.

There's no tax code for swindled items.

Another Cannabis-related creation, for my friends in Music City..standard 12-bar blues:

Moonshine & Tea-bags.
We got nuthin' to lose.
'cept fleas from our flea-bag.
Dangle your bag in your booze.

Yeah, moonshine and Tea-bags.
Makes you feel cocky and bold.
Break out, salute the rebel flags.
Like in the bloody days of old.

Moonshine & Tea-bags.
It's a potent brew.
White lightning & Orange pekoe.
Gonna make a man outta you.

By: bfra on 11/27/12 at 11:35

Loner - Have you ever tasted moonshine?

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 11:39

Yes. AKA: Everclear....yeah, some guy brought some to camp...my ears still ring...chug-a-lug...chug-a-lug:


By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 11:49

A shot of moonshine in a glass of Welch's white grape juice can be a savior in case of a Wine Emergency....when one is out of wine in the woods, and the ladies want wine, one gets creative....it worked for me.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 11:55

Moonshine and Tea-bags. Kinda has a nice ring to it. The kind of ring that forms in the bottom of a Thunderbird bottle.

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:01

Yeah, the sulfite residue...I know what you mean, Bn...some call them, "wine diamonds"....it's the sulfite(s) precipitating out of the solution, as crystals.

Since the Tea-baggers have taken over as one-party rulers of the moonshine states....tea-bags in the moonshine seems like a natural...did you like the tune?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:02

Yes, I do like the tune! Talk about diamonds in the rough.....

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:04

Or, in some cases, simply sulfite crystals.

I thought he was a diamond in the rough, but he was just a sulfite crystal - not enough...

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:06

I never promised you a wine diamond
Along with the moonshine there's gotta be a little tea sometime......

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:12

Thanks for the feedbag on the teabag...I mean the feedback on the teabag tune....I think that a white lightning and teabag brew would look dark and taste bitter, but it would burn, baby, burn... a fitting metaphor for the Tea Party membership and its impaired agenda.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:15

"Toxic" would also apply, or at least "putrid."

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:16

But those are only adjectives after all. Not nearly as powerful as a metaphor.

By: slacker on 11/27/12 at 12:21

So... did they draw straws to see who would dig up Yasser Arafat?

By: slacker on 11/27/12 at 12:23

''He looks so natural.. where's Ringo?

By: gdiafante on 11/27/12 at 12:23

Yeah Ben, just as astounding at how you see a conspiracy under every tenth rock or so. Now go crawl back under yours.

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:25

I like the colors, man...White lightning & Orange pekoe....this could be the Conservative's answer to the popular Red Bull & Jagermeister drink - The Jager Bomb......yeah, the new GOP moonshine and tea drink needs a name...maybe, The Teabagger Tomahawk?.....Your cruise missile to inebriation.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:28

g, only if the rocks are in a circle......

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:28

The Teabagger Tomahawk. A simple drink for simple folk. Add an ounce of moonshine to a glass of iced tea, garnish with lemon or lime.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:29

What Would Jesus Drink

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:30

A Suthurner's answer to a Long Island Tea.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:31

Not as classy but it gets the job done.

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:35

Slack schleps in exhumation schtick....always good for a laugh....Bravo!

FOX News covered the uncovering story too: "Who looks better, Yassar Arafat in his tomb, or Ari Sharon in a coma? We'll find out, right after this...."

By: slacker on 11/27/12 at 12:40

Yassar Arafat's first blind date was told: ''he's got a great personality.''

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:44

I think that the Teabagger Tomahawk should be served on the rocks, in a glass that has had a sugary rim-job......and garnished with lemon or lime.....the white lightning and iced tea mixture would be shaken, not stirred, then poured into the glass.

Have a TT or two...and tune in to Rush on the EIB Network...or FOX News....you'll be wired and hoppin' mad in no time.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/27/12 at 12:45

Well, that would explain a thing or two, Loner.....

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:46

Yassar Arafat dated Helen Thomas, no?

By: slacker on 11/27/12 at 12:47

Loner, did you ever drink Purple Passion on the beach, back in the day?

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:48

Slack: Angry Tea-bagger barges into a gay piano bar....orders a Teabagger Tomahawk....

By: slacker on 11/27/12 at 12:51

Loner, yes they were an item.. Helen affectionately said.. ''Yassar that's my baby''..

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:52

Purple passion on the beach...sounds like a porn film....you mean this stuff:


No, never had it, but I might try it, if offered.

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 12:59

Looks like my moonshine and Welch's white grape juice emergency fix could have mass market potential.....hmmmm....uniting the powerful white lightning of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with the passionate white concord grapes of the Empire State's Southern Tier....a marriage made in Heaven?

By: slacker on 11/27/12 at 12:59

Loner, it was grain alcohol, mixed with grape juice, in a garbage can, (galvanized) on the beach...back in the Hootnanny days. It didn't result in complete brain damage, maybe 25%

By: dargent7 on 11/27/12 at 12:59

What exactly is McCain and Graham's problem?
They are going after Rice for her post Benghazi Meet the Press interview.
She said the CIA gave her faulty intel....where'd we hear that before?
4 died. Compare that to Bush's "faulty Intel" Iraq b.s. costing a trillion and 4,500 dead.
MCain was really something in 1972 in Hanoi but in 2012 he's a bitter, old, loser of a fool.

By: Loner on 11/27/12 at 1:07

Darge, it's simple, McCain was the last holdout on the Martin Luther King Holiday vote...he's a white supremacist who was beaten by a man with Negroid features...it stuck in the old geezer's craw...he could not beat Obama at the polls, so he's trying to tar & feather the uppity Negro President.....Benghazi is the tar....Senator Graham, the good old Southern boy, has the feathers.
