    SUMMARY: Though a number of players are working to fill the hole left by Pacman Jones in the return game, DB Cortland Finnegan appears to be leading the group. Special teams coach Alan Lowry said Finnegan gives the Titans the best chance to minimize drop-off for both punt returns and kickoff returns from last season. "He's got the most quickness, and he's really explosive," Lowry said. "He's strong for his size a lot like Pac was. So we'll give him the first shot and see what happens." Many times when Pacman Jones broke free, Finnegan was running stride for stride by his side. The Titans plan on using a number of return candidates during the preseason including RB Chris Henry and WRs Brandon Jones, Courtney Roby and Chris Davis.

  3. CFinn did this every play!! He was there when Tony Brown returned that Touchdown and he was there when pac-man returned it during the eagles game and he returned that fumble for touchdown!! He is fast and maybe will do stuff for us this year!! Its like everytime We punted the ball CFinn was the first one down there!!

    Im all for Finnegan getting the PR duties. They're right he is fast and elusive and was beside Pacman step for step every time. IMHO I think Finnegan might do better than Pacman because he really is soo fast and quick.

    I would love to see Finn step up and have a good year returning punts but let's get real here... He couldn't hold Pac's jock.

    "return game can withstand the loss of pacman, titans say"

    i say bull****. if we had someone that was almost as good as he was, they would have been back there already so we weren't endangering our best corner; just like when we took mason off returns.

    It didn't say "return game will be just as good despite the loss of pacman"

    I think Finny is Fast and has a few moves. Not exactly Pac Man, but he was a freak of Nature in the return game. I think Finny Could break a few.

    Looking at the fumble for TD last year, I suppose he could be a good fit
