    SUMMARY: After an embarrassing loss to the Broncos last week, the Titans didn't ease many concerns with a 20-6 loss to the Falcons. With starters on both sides of the ball the first half, the Titans offense sputtered and the defense was inconsistent as the Falcons built a 17-6 lead by halftime. "We just showed a lack of consistency,'' said QB Billy Volek. "We weren't executing because we would make a play and it would be called back because of a penalty.'' Coach Fisher felt issues such as the holding penalties, some poor calls defensively which led to big plays by the Falcons and a fake punt that didn't work hurt the club the most. "We are not going to panic but we need to score points and get the ball in the end zone," said Fisher. "The problem is we haven’t even gotten close to the end zone. That’s something we need to get squared away and move forward certainly before the season starts."

    Is there any way that we could keep the two Aces and fold the rest of the hand?

    I have a feeling that with the starters in the full four quarters, we'll be fine. I am beginning to wonder if we'll see Young sooner than expected as the starter. He may be making some silly mistakes, but he is, for a rookie, looking good.

    of course those are all hold 'em poker references.
    flop, turn, river... river card is final card of a community hand.
