    Pats gonna get their points against any defense. On opening day we need to focus more on our own TD's rather than stopping Brady. A team like ours needs no less than 33 points to beat the pats. Our D is still young, we are 2-3 years out from being stout. Locker,CJ,Cook,Wright,Britt and Nate has to lead us.

    DALTON, Ga.Titans tackle David Stewart (knee), defensive end Dave Ball (concussion), center Kevin Matthews (concussion) and tight end Brandon Barden (hamstring) didn’t make the trip to face the Falcons because of injuries.

    Cornerback Terrence Wheatley appeared to be dealing with a hamstring injury, but Coach Mike Munchak said the Titans shut him down on Monday because of cramps. Linebacker Alex Watkins suffered a foot injury early when he was stepped on, but Munchak said he doesn’t think the injury is serious.

    DALTON, Ga. There was some jawing, though most of it seemed to be coming from the mouth of Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.

    But for the most part, the Titans and Falcons were on their best behavior here on Monday.

    Aside from a brief moment when Titans guard Leroy Harris and Falcons defensive tackle Peria Jerry got tangled up, the two teams steered clear of fighting.

    Titans Coach Mike Munchak said he and Falcons Coach Mike Smith both talked to their players beforehand.

    “No one is going to make the team because they got in a fight,’’ Munchak. “We can still compete at a high level without fighting and pushing and shoving. Otherwise it is not worth doing these things. A lot of times these things turn into: Who is the toughest guy? And there is a big fight and you don’t get any work done. This was more about getting better and competing.

    “There is nothing wrong with being fiery, but there is no reason to go any further than that. Some guys maybe got a little chippy at the end. If we were here a little longer it might’ve gotten a little more interesting. But I thought guys did a good job of playing with an edge and not losing (control).”

    Munchak said he’s already talked to Smith about making the get-together an annual event. An announced crowd of 8,627 turned out for the joint practice at Coahulla Creek High School.

    “We’d love it,’’ Munchak said. “It’s something that Mike and I talked about and if the schedules worked we’d love to continue to try and find a way to get together.”

    Jared Cook's twitter:

    "Soooo we been lost for an hour we just now in Chattanooga. We've been watching step brothers and it's almost over! Ugh"

    Preditan's tip of the day: Never ride on a bus with Jared Cook.

    How in God's name do you get lost going from Atlanta to Nashville?! That driver should be fired for doing acid on the job. Either fired or promoted.

    DALTON, Ga. The defenses didn’t tackle. There was no game-planning. But after watching the two-hour practice with the Falcons, Titans coach Mike Munchak said he was impressed with his team’s running game, particularly Chris Johnson.

    “There were some good lanes, and I think there has been the last three or four days,” Munchak said. “It is still encouraging to see some guys staying on the blocks, and Chris had some great reads. The way he was hitting things, you don’t see hesitation. C.J. looked quick, he was hitting things decisively. When he decided to go outside he hit it hard and showed some speed around the edge. … I thought all the backs looked like they ran well.”

    Johnson said he felt like the offense did a nice job overall.

    “Any time you are out there going against somebody else, it helps,” he said. “We got a good feel for how we’ll be able to do against some other guys.”

    DALTON, Ga. When the Titans take on New England, San Diego, Detroit and Houston in the first month of the season, they’ll be facing some potent offenses that at times utilize the no-huddle attack.

    That’s why Titans middle linebacker Colin McCarthy figures facing the Atlanta Falcons – in some hurry-up, no-huddle situations – during Monday’s scrimmage should prove valuable.

    “I think we did great. We handled the no-huddle and the empty situation when they went no back,” McCarthy said. “I think the first couple of weeks during the regular season we’ll have to deal with that a lot. So this was refreshing to come out here against a good offense that has a lot of good receivers, and a lot of good threats on the offensive side.”

    McCarthy said one thing he especially liked about the Titans’ work against the Falcons’ no-huddle offense was the defensive communication.

    “I think the D-line knows the no-huddle as far as getting lined up, and (the linebackers) communicate with them,” McCarthy said. “On the back end, we’re looking to the sideline, getting the call and echoing the call, just being prepared.

    “I think that’s one thing that last year – when we came out against the no-huddle — sometimes we were running around. So for us to get a chance to come out here against a team like this that has a lot of threats on offense and work on it, I think will help us during the season.”
