DT Thomas to Start, Clancy has Turf Toe

Because of a turf toe injury to defensive tackle Kendrick Clancy, the Saints may have to count out on their best run stopper from a year ago when they go against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.
Hollis Thomas lost his starting job to Clancy in training camp after Thomas reported to camp overweight and out of shape. Thomas was estimated to be at least 25 pounds over his reporting weight of 330 pounds and gave way to Clancy, who was signed in June, when the weight failed to come off.
Thomas has been part of the line rotation for the first two games, but his role could expand with Clancy ailing and the NFL's top running attack coming to the Superdome as the Titans are averaging a healthy 211.5 yards a game.


This could be a long day. As if we needed a DT to come up lame.

Remember last year when Atlanta brought their new "best in the league" option running attack to the dome? Remember that? And Vince Young is nowhere near as fast as Vick.

I say it's going to be a long night for Titans fans.

I believe it is tearing everyone's guts out, I want to see some heart on the field.

0-3, I do not believe a team has eve made it to the SB starting out 0-3. Playoffs will be a reach at 0-3, but I will still cheer and hope we can ruin someone else's dream if we get to that point. Maybe the first two games have taught them a lesson, if not then it could get ugly.

I believe that Thomas is the better run stuffer. Clancy is a good 2nd stringer.

Young is smart? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

This guy has gotta be one of the dumbest people in the NFL, or maybe even the country. The reason why Vince Young is so good is not because he is smart; it's because he's a sick nasty athlete. He's got a cannon for an arm and good wheels. He can beat with his arm or his legs. Having a lot of brainpower, however, is never something that good ol' VY has ever had to deal with.
