    SUMMARY: Traditionally, most NFL coaches use the third preseason game as the dress rehearsal for the regular season. Both Tennessee head coach Jeff Fisher and Atlanta coach Jim Mora tried to characterize last week’s losses as personnel evaluations, rather than competitive games. Expect that to change Saturday night. Mora said most Falcon starters will play at least a half.

    The Titans are 0-2 in the preseason, while the Falcons fell to 1-1 after a 38-10 loss at Green Bay last week.

    I think that Vick will be the biggest test for the LBs so far this preseason. They will need to show their ability to stay home and watch the QB more closely. I would hope that they would put Tulloch in for half a quarter or so with the 1st stringers. He should open some eyes with pro talent around him. I know that this is off topic, but when do the roster cuts happen? I know that they are about a week apart, but I don't know the dates.

    will be nice to pay NFL $ and actually see an NFL game instead of one team evaluating personnel and the other one playing a football game.

    Ya play to win cause the game is on the schedule.

    I expect to see the Falcons score a TD with a 40+ yard run.

  6. I don't mean to be the negative one here, but I expect to see 40 TD and 400 yards run IF we play like last week.

    Must have been NE. They lost bad to GB. I heard there were alot of turnovers. The NE game was on where I am. Atlanta has a good qb at #3. Behind Vick is major depth. The second teams will be tested. I feel like they will run at will but try to focus on the passing game. JS has something to prove to me. 3 and out isn't in his vocabulary.

    backpeddaling CBs on third and 6 are a given. If the QB can throw a 10y out the Titan D will not leave the filed till they give up a TD.

    I am beyond SGWb Dehr Schwartzie proving anything at all. If he was a baby I would throw him out with the bath water and make sure the whole mess flew into a raging river so it would never have to be seen again.

    This is very likely going to be a run fest from both teams
