      My thoughts on the game...

      Like everybody else, I thought the D-line did very well. I was particularly impressed with Odom, but I knew he'd do well all along :) I thought Finnegan had a solid game at corner, even though he allowed that long pass to Santana Moss. Though, I'm not sure even Pacman would have stopped that play. If the safety had any anticipation skills, he could have gotten there to stop it. Who was the safety? None other than our beloved Lamont Thompson. I hope he gets cut, which leads me to my next thought. We need to put Griffin at safety, pronto. He didn't look very comfortable at corner, although he held his own. I would rather see him thriving at safety than holding his own as a backup corner.

      The O-line was a little disappointing. I don't blame the running backs for struggling. I was sitting in the endzone, so I had a good view from behind and I could tell if the holes were opening or not. Let's just say that the running backs were running into a wall.

      Tim Rattay is > Kerry Collins, hands down.

      Chris Henry showed great burst and excellent hands. I think he should play ahead of Brown and split carries with Lendale.

      Despite the talk that Roydell and Roby are playing better than Brandon Jones, it's not true. Jones is clearly our #1. Moulds didn't play particularly well. He dropped a screen pass and I don't think he saw another ball after that. I think Roydell will get his chance to earn a starting spot.

      After one pre-season game, here is my starting line-up:

      QB: Vince Young
      RB: LenDale White (with Chris Henry spelling him)
      FB: Ahmard Hall
      WR: Brandon Jones
      WR: Roydell Williams
      TE: Bo Scaife
      LT: Michael Roos
      LG: Jacob Bell
      C: Kevin Mawae
      RG: Benji Olson
      RT: David Stewart

      DE: KVB
      DT: Albert Haynesworth
      DT: Tony Brown
      DE: Antwan Odom
      OLB: Keith Bulluck
      MLB: Tulloch or Fowler (pending further review)
      OLB: David Thornton
      CB: Nick Harper
      CB: Cortland Finnegan
      SS: Chris Hope
      FS: Michael Griffin (move him, for the love of God!!!)

      Overall, I feel a little bit better about our team after the game. Yeah, we lost, but it was a fluke and both teams' fourth stringers were in the game. We would beat the Redskins in the regular season.
      "A lot of people say this and say that about us, but thatís a good thing. We want to keep it low, and we donít want all the hype going with the Tennessee Titans. We want to just keep it low. Yíall just keep talking about us, talking bad about us, so we can just continue to go out there each week and show the whole world what type of football team we are." -- Vince Young

      T-minus 1 year until the beginning of the Titans Dynasty!

        If I were the Titans I would start Chris Brown but immediately bench him if he plays poorly or gets hurt, and have Henry 2nd. White nothing more than a goal line back. Henry even runs with more power and passion than White.

          Chris Brown doesn't look as fast as he used to. Someone made the comment last night that he looks like he's running through sand. I'd agree with that....though we still haven't seen him get to just find a crease and go yet.

                Griffin got his first pick at CB.

                And Odom still looks beastly

                EDIT - And Griffin just got his 2nd pick.

                  What were your thoughts on the game, Pit? I'm not able to watch any of the games unless they're on ESPN or nationally televised...

                  From what I can tell, the D-Line played well, and the secondary did too with 4 picks. Vince struggled in his first game also. But other than that, I got nuthin'...

                      Vince looked really bad. He looked rusty and like he was trying too hard and pressing.

                      Chris Brown looked good.

                      OL was fine, but the Pats were blitzing heavily when the 1st team was in. They blitzed alot, I'd say the majority of the time.

                      The DL played very well. LBs were ehhh. We got GASHED on about 4 screen plays. They even ran the same screen back to back and both went for big gains. One thing I did notice about the DL was that they would get good pressure, but whoever the QB was would flush out of the pocket, and that bought a ton of extra time, because the guys in the DL couldn't recover.

                      Secondary play was fine. Griffin played great. Herndon did pretty well except for 1 pass interference call in the end zone. Lowry was invisible for the most part. Hope didn't do a ton. Finnegan played well. King had good coverage on one play, but allowed a completion because he missed the ball.

                      We played really sloppy though. I think we had 8 penalties with about 13 mins left in the 2nd quarter. Alot of offsides penalties.

                      That's all I got.

                          Hopefully our O-line being so bad first game was a result of your D-line being so good. I saw a few plays of the game and you were getting great penetration on another strong line with the Pats. Makes me feel a little more at ease with our O-line problems lol.

                            Oh, didn't know about that, Titan10. Thanks!

                            And thank you Pit. But, another thing I would like to know is who started at MLB this time?

                              Tulloch started at MLB this game.

                              Both he and Fowler looked decent. Nothing really stood out to me. Tulloch made one nice play meeting the RB in the hole, and Fowler made a great pass breakup over the middle of the field. I didn't focus alot on them, and haven't rewatched the game any. I was mainly trying to watch the DL and see how our secondary performed.

                              I am very pleased with the secondary. Looks like we have very good depth there this year as well.

                                I'm so happy that our D-line is still playing well. Odom looks like a pro-bowler if he can stay healthy, and I'm not even exaggerating. If he starts all 16 games, I could DEFINITELY see him notching 14-15 sacks.

                                Another guy who looked good last night was Chris Brown. Like Eddie George said on the broadcast, his arms look really big. I didn't see the game on TV last week b/c I was at the game, so I couldn't see how big his arms were. I know he was going against second teamers, but he ran really hard and put a couple of really good moves on the linebackers and corners.

                                How about Cortland Finnegan? I give KVB the credit for his INT, but I loved to see how physical he was with Stallworth. After the performances he and Griffin put up at corner, I could see Nick Harper moving to nickel by mid-season if Griffin continues to improve. I was a little disappointed by the safety play last night. Chris Hope didn't really stand out, and he was supposed to be covering Wes Welker on the touchdown. Lamont didn't stand out except for his INT, which should be credited to Antwan Odom body slamming Tom Brady into the ground. I thought Fuller played a better game than Lowry.

                                Kelly Herndon was around the ball a lot and should have had at least one pick. That pass interference call on him in the endzone was ticky-tack.

                                I thought Fowler had a better game than Tulloch, and I thought that our backup linebackers played better than last week -- especially Gilbert Gardner.

                                Travis Laboy had better start showing up. I think Sean Connover is out-playing him so far this preseason.

                                The offensive line still looks bad. They gave up four sacks on Vince (almost a couple more) and couldn't open up running lanes in the first half. I'm still confident that they'll be okay by week one, though.

                                As for Vince, he looked AWFUL. I know it was his first time out, and the field was really slick, but come on. I'm pretty sure I could have gone 5-17 last night, especially since half of the completions were little dump passes to Bo Scaife. I thought Collins looked a lot better than last week, and Rattay looked not quite as good. I'll give Collins the #2 job back, for now.

                                The wide receivers... I think Roydell should start instead of Moulds. Moulds has shown NOTHING so far this preseason. He supposedly catches everything in practice, but it's not translating to the games. IMO, our starters should be Jones and Roydell with Chris Davis in the slot. Justin Gage looks like our #4. Roby and Moulds just look bad. I might say that Paul Williams should be our #5 with Roby and Moulds sitting on the bench.

                                It is also becoming more and more clear that we NEED Ben Troupe to have a good year. We desperately need a big, athletic target in the middle of the field for Vince. I think our offense would look tons better with Ben Troupe in the game and playing well. We need for Scaife to be a solid #2.

                                Overall, I give our defense a B+ and our offense a D-. If we learned one thing from last night, it is that we have pretty darn good depth.

                                My updated Titans depth chart after two preseason games:

                                QB: Vince, Kerry, Tim
                                RB: LenDale, Brown, Henry
                                TE: Troupe, Scaife, Hartsock
                                FB: Hall, Cramer
                                WR: Jones, R. Williams, Davis, Gage, P. Williams, Roby, Moulds
                                OL: Same as usual

                                LB: Bulluck, Thornton, and Fowler
                                DE: KVB and Odom
                                DT: Haynesworth and Brown
                                CB: Finnegan and Harper
                                NB: Griffin
                                S: Fuller and Hope
