Is the Titans Receiver Curse Still Alive?

The Tennessee Titans have never been known for having elite wide receivers. That is something we can all agree on. The seasons under Jeff Fisher never raised questions about the receiving game. Fisher was openly a run-first and play defense type of coach with a quarterback, Steve McNair, who could make a play with his arm when called upon.Combine McNair’s ability with Eddie George...
