I know, it is really boring, but hey, it is football.

Question

April 18, 2013

So Enderle won’t friend me on facebook, leaving the tall task up to Astro to befriend him at a Titan pre season game.  Can I assume we are still going to have Tennessee as our second favorite NFL team?

EnderleMania Runs Wild In Tennessee

April 6, 2013

In the comments of the last post I mentioned that rr’s boy Nathan Enderle got signed by the Titans as the third string qb.  A few words about the Titans situation, then some words on EnderleMania.

As for the Titans, Locker just had shoulder surgery, and they also still have Rusty Smith.  Who the fuck is Rusty Smith?  He served as the third stringer last year behind SuperJake and Hasslebeck, but I had never heard of him.  A quick wiki shows he played four years at Florida Atlantic.  He is also a pretty big guy, like Enderle.

So what does all this mean for Enderle?  Well, from what I can glean from the tubes, Enderle is signed to a “futures” contract.

A quick google search says that a futures contract means that it is basically signing a player for the upcoming year before the “official” season starts sometime in March or April, but that these futures contracts are only available for players that were not on an NFL team the previous year or that were on the practice squad.

The Titans dumped Hasslebeck from their roster a couple of weeks ago and the depth chart from the Titans website shows Locker as first string, Smith as second string and Enderle as third.  So I am 75% sure Enderle will make the team unless they draft someone great, but I guess time will tell and I have no idea why the Titans would sign Enderle just to draft someone and dump him.  If Enderle sticks, I will be a Titans fan.  What the hell, my second favorite NFL team changes every year it seems, so why not TN next year.

When Cutler went down for the Bears two years ago, “Mad” Mike Martz put in Caleb Hanie, who was supremely unqualified to run that offense.  After the third or fourth game it was apparent that Hanie either didn’t get it, or couldn’t do it.  Inexplicably, they never even gave Enderle a chance.  That stirred me to write one of my Magnum Opuses over at Fire Ron Turner, The Crime that was Nathan Enderle.  Give that a read if you have some extra time this weekend.  It is a short piece, but one that hits the nail on the head.  Why on earth was Enderle not given a chance?

Astro asked Enderle this question on twitter a while ago and was met with a polite response from Enderle that surprisingly didn’t trash Martz, but said that he “learned a lot”.  I would have been bitter.  Pretty classy, but I guess you never know who your next boss will be in the NFL.

Enderle’s twitter feed is completely retarded, as well as his Facebook page, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he is dumb or crazy.  I have friended him on Facebook and we will see if I get approved.  If so, I will be trying to work him over like I did JWebb, but in a good way.  I admit I had the worst of intentions when I started trolling JWebb, but he proved to be an actually kickass person, unlike most thugs in the NFL.  Time will tell on Enderle.
