    I mean Ihope I'm wrong but I see a long season ahead of us if our defense can't get it together.

    run defense in safety play particularly strong safety has been very poor

    sure the Titans didnt look like world beaters but if they would have made the field goals we would have won the game they do need to figure out how to get in the endzone other then cj breaking off a long one

    My only concern from last night is the defense struggling against vanilla running plays. The preseason is about one-on-one match ups and the #1 DL was getting blown up too often.

    This probably has something to do with the fact that our two best linebackers didn't play. When Ayers was in the game, our defense looked lethal. If McCarthy plays, along with Ayers, our defense could be beast. *COULD BE

    I bet you and the rest of us Titan fans didn't say that when CJ2K scored a long run against the redskins...
    I really hope I am wrong but I don't see anything positive... We have jake locker for QB LOL

    He's only had 11 starts. He showed improvement last night and still has a lot of room to grow.


    Did you see the move CJ put on the guy? And the cutback? I still expect big things from CJ.
