Snoop Dogg and LenDale White do a video together and pose as the No. 10

The Tennessee Titans got rid of one giant sized headache a few weeks ago when they decided to trade Pacman Jones to the Dallas Cowboys. But they are still holding on tight to their bowling ball of a running back in LenDale White. The USC product has been a disappointment thus far, despite posting 1,000 yards last season and while Jeff Fisher and Vince Young would probably love to see the `round mound of touchdown’ hit the gym during the offseason, White would rather pimp it up with Snoop than pump it up with the Titans.

When rapper Snoop Dogg asked Titans running back LenDale White to be in one of his music videos earlier this offseason, White obliged.

White traveled to Las Vegas for the shooting of “Life of Da’ Party,” mainly because of his friendship with the musician.

“That’s my guy,” White said of Snoop Dogg.

But White wasn’t pushing for a starring role. He makes a cameo in the music video, and that was partly by design.

White said he was careful not to set himself up for second-guessing from others down the road.

“I didn’t want nothing too big,” White said.”Because had I been in that video a long time … let’s say something happened this year and I had only 20 yards rushing. Then everybody around here would be on my back, saying, ‘If he wasn’t in the Snoop Dogg video maybe he would’ve been (better).’

Actually, most Titans fans would probably be thinking that if you tossed in a salad every now then than maybe you’d be better. After all, Snoop Dogg does have the ability to give people the super-munchies by his mere presence alone.

Pacman Jones continues to surprise us with his career choices

Pacman Jones has been a helluva lot more productive off the field than on it since he made the jump from college to the pros and we’re not just talking about his criminal activities either. Since being suspended from the NFL for his cornucopia of arrests, not only has Jones semi started a professional wrasslin’ career, but now he’s getting ready to kick off an attempt at becoming the next Jay-Z.

Pacman owns a record label named National Street League Records and he announced on Wednesday that he’ll be joining a producer named Spoaty to form the dynamic rap duo known as Posterboyz! And if you thought that there was a frenzy when the latest Madden game hit the shelves, just wait until you see the lines that form outside your local Best Buy on August 27 when their first single entitled “Let It Shine” drops. And like most rap joints, this one is supposed to about “big money, cars and jewelry.” What, no lyrics inspired by politics, the stock market and fine china? Damn, Pacman, we thought you were a lot deeper than those typical hip hoppers.

Oh, but, just because Pacman isn’t wearing a pair of matching metal bracelets doesn’t mean that he’s not still getting into trouble.

Officials are looking into whether or not the record label’s name, National Street League Records, infringes on the league’s trademark, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said.

Jones just can’t get a break. People don’t want him playing football, they don’t want him to wrestle and now there’s trouble brewing about him making music. But we’ve got a feeling that the NFL could save themselves a lot of trouble by just letting this whole infringement thing slide. After all, if Pacman is anything like his NBA clone Ron Artest behind the mic then it won’t be long until he destroys his own musical aspirations and all the trademarks that go along with ’em.

Vince Young loses his cool during training camp

Lots of people were surprised that Vince Young was able to perform at such a high level during his rookie year after he appeared to be borderline mentally handicapped when racking up an unimpressive Wonderlic score. He had always shown such poise and sound judgment when behind center last year that it seemed as if VY was simply unflappable. That was until yesterday.

Young got more than a little heated when Titans safety Donnie Nickey took down rookie receiver Joel Filani, who had to be assisted by trainers to the sideline after the hard hit, and followed that up by using a chokehold/clothesline to tackle Courtney Roby. As Young was checking up on his receiver, Nickey and Young began pushing, shoving and hollering at each other. But by the day’s end, all was well between those involved. The group even held a humorous press conference with Coach Jeff Fisher after training camp concluded for the day.

However, the situation could have been much worse for the Tennessee franchise because Young was actually throwing punches at the helmeted Nickey with his throwing hand!

That’s bad. That’s bad. That’s real bad,” Young said.

And while Nickey played the role of the bad guy during the initial incident, he stated that it was just a heat of the moment type thing and was even cracking jokes and giving advice about the scuffle afterwards.

At least not with your right hand man. Jab with the left and wait for the cavalry,” Nickey

When keeping it real goes wrong: Pacman Jones

You know what, Pacman? It’s ok to not keep it real if you got millions and lifelong security at stake. Either that or you can be the fastest guy on the Wal-Mart flag football team.

On Monday, we told you about the latest incident with strippers and guns. Well, more details are coming out and it just seems like Pacman Jones is an idiot who cares more about his thug image than he does getting back in the league.

According to the police report, Jones became angry after another patron at Club Blaze asked an entertainer for a dance and told the man, “I’ll kill all y’all in here.”

An off-duty cop working as a security guard at the club also told police he overheard Jones say, “I’m going to get my gun” as the Titans’ star left the club.

Pacman is like a bad imitation of the guy in White Men Can’t Jump who threatened to get his gun and kill everyone after Wesley and Woody snookered him. He absolutely just doesn’t care whether he’s back in the league or not. Can Goodell ban him from the NFL while on his suspension for this season?

Think about this for a second: Chris Henry got the same memo and Pacman Jones and he hasn’t been in trouble yet. How sad is it when Chris Henry is smarter than you?

Pacman Jones needs some new friends

So much for that full page ad that Pacman took out apologizing to the NFL, the Titans and the fans. Not even an entire summer has gone by and Pacman already is involved in another shooting.

Police are looking for him after a shooting following a fight involving his entourage at an Atlanta strip club at 4 a.m. Monday morning. Police say that Jones and crew got into a fight over a woman with three other people. After everyone left, a member of the entourage shot at the car with the three people who were involved in the fight.

Jones wasn’t present at the time of the shooting and police only want to question him as a witness in the incident (isn’t that how the Vegas incident started out?) but clearly this is an indication that Pacman hasn’t learned a damn thing about being more responsible and making the right decisions. Being at a strip club till 4 a.m. on a Sunday night is clearly the wrong decision. The good news for Pacman is that there are plenty of strip clubs in Canada when he has to play for the CFL.

If you can dodge traffic, you can dodge a ball!

Considering that Vince Young is the next Madden cover boy and all (check out the commercial, rooks), you’d think that the Titans would want to boost his game sells by giving him some big-time weapons to throw to. Well, let’s see; Tennessee hasn’t made any offseason moves for a wide receiver, they didn’t select a WR with their first pick in the draft and now we find out that the coaches are throwing bricks at the receivers they do have.

Fred Graves is the new wide receivers coach for the Titans and his sure fire technique for getting his players to keep their eye on the ball and follow it all the way into their body is to occasionally throw bricks at the guys. Now, if an ACME brick to the chest doesn’t get your attention then nothing will.

If I toss you a football and you drop it, no big deal unless I am yelling at you as a coach,” Graves said. “But if I toss you a brick, without you sidestepping it, you’re going to look at it with your hands and eyes. You won’t just throw your hands out there because of the consequences. Everybody knows, ‘Hey, this thing will hurt.’

This sounds like a drill that the Cowboys should start using. After all, Terrell Owens had so many balls pass through his hands last season that he looked like Paris Hilton in pads. And anyways, if he doesn’t reel `em in then he takes a brick to the head; what’s the big deal? Hopefully he’s not wearing a helmet at the time. That just might be the only way to knock some sense into that guy.

Hey, Vince! There’s still time to back out!

We all know that Vince Young’s career is in serious jeopardy in just his second year as a pro quarterback thanks to his decision to pose as the Madden 08 cover boy. But, hell, it doesn’t matter if they put Daffy Duck on the front of the package because there will be a line that stretches all the way around Best Buy’s across the nation when the game is finally released. So, here’s a little tease for all you video game nerds out there.

And if VY wasn’t enough to get your thumbs twiddling in anticipation, then you can check out the additional Madden 08 ads which star some of the other rookie sensations in the league after the jump.

Pacman takes out ad to apologize for slamming a stripper’s head into the stage, and the drugs, and..

We’re not sure exactly what NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell said to Pacman Jones, other than “see ya next year,” but whatever it was, it is having a serious effect on the Pacman. First Jones came out and conducted a fairly honest interview with Primetime, then he announced that he’s going back to school during his suspension and now he’s taking out full page ads to publicly apologize. Damn, we use to think Pacman was so hard.

In the April 20 edition of The Tennessean of Nashville, Jones said that his life is all jacked up and then told his family and friends that he’ll do whatever it takes to regain their trust.

In the past few weeks, I have learned a lifetime of lessons. First and foremost, I need to reorganize my priorities. As a grown man and a new father, my first priority is my daughter and family. Second, I have to not only meet the expectations of my coaches, teammates and fans, but exceed them in every respect, on and off the field. The first step in meeting these goals is for me to stop making the poor choices that have put me in this position.

So, does this mean there will be no more strip clubs? No more shootings? No more drugs? No more car chases? And most importantly no more biting police officers?

Hopefully for Pacman he’s getting his life on track, but we’re pretty bummed that the one man police blotter won’t be entertaining us weekly with his circus side show act. But we still have Chris Henry and Tank Johnson to keep things interesting during the off season, and while they are no Pacman, that’s not too shabby at all.

Vince Young ain’t afraid of no curse

Vince Young is one of the hottest young commodities in the NFL and on Wednesday he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and discussed several important topics.

1. The Madden Jinx

2. The Rose Bowl

3. Getting shafted by Houston

4. Money, money, money

5. Rapping (don’t worry Ron Artest, your side job is safe)

Oddly enough, Pee Wee Herman somehow ended up on the same couch with the Longhorn legend which means that little perv got top billing. Now we see why Kimmel is stuck coming on at 1:00 in the morning.

Madden curse to work its black magic on Vince Young

fine fine photoshop work

As if Pacman Jones’ situation isn’t bad enough for the Tennessee Titans, now they gotta deal with the eventual season ending, career altering injury to their franchise QB. Yep, Vince Young is expected to grace the cover of Madden 2008 and undoubtedly become the next NFL superstar to fall victim to the curse of fat boy John Madden. But Vince ain’t afraid of no curse; he’s already been announced as one of Chunky Soup’s “Mama’s Boys” for this season which would have players trembling in the past.

Sure, it’s a honor to be named as a Madden cover worthy player, especially just one year into his career, but after Eddie George, Donovan McNabb, Daunte Culpepper, Shaun Alexander and Ray Lewis all suffered through some type of turmoil after the game was released, Tennessee fans have got to be praying that EA Sports will reconsider and screw someone else like Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning or league MVP LaDanian Tomlinson.

After all, Vince already has the odds stacked against him with Pacman getting the boot, an outta shape running back, no receivers to speak of and a front office that is tens of millions of dollars under the cap but has yet to spend a dime during the off-season. Still, if anyone can break this jinx, you have to think that VY’s the man to do it.
