    See the problem with the CJ critics is that he appears to be exactly what the offense needed; a home-run hitter who you're not going to see every other down. I actually doubt the people who say that he can't run inside because he's small. From what I've seen, he has very good vision inside actually. The problem is his frame, and the fact that he'll be the fastest player after the hike he's going to be clued in on (which is a good thing if you use him sparingly).

    I dunno. I think the distractors will continue to whine for a wideout when really they should be optimistic that the offense appears to have a special tool for the future.

    SPEED, that is what this offense has been really missing. CJ showed you just what is possible when you combine a talented Oline, a electric QB and a runningback that can go the distance.

    Vince and CJ are going to feed of each other.

    I was extremely pleased with what I saw last night in the preseason game.
    I'm trying to not go crazy about this game because:
    1. It's the first preseason game
    2. It's the Ram defense

    I was happy to see the total domination of our OL against the Rams DL. For virtually all game, we pushed the Rams DL back, creating a new "line of scrimmage." I was pleased with the vision I saw in the RB (even Chris Henry looked okay). Quitin Ganther was extremely impressive in the work that he got. He found himself a job tonight, be it with the Titans or someone else.

    The passing game looked okay but, I would have liked to see one of the deep balls completed. Paul Williams looks like a bust. He could be fighting for a roster spot come the final cuts. I was encouraged by the play of the TE in the passing game. Some very good catches and route running

    Defensively, I think we saw flashes of the old "Freak". Our DL played extremely well. Jason Jones showed some flashes of why he was drafted in the 2nd round. But where was William Hayes, I don't remember seeing him all game
    I am worried. Nick Harper's concussion reminded me that we are one play away from having the "Chosen One" start again. That results of that fear we realized when he got toasted on St. Louis one big play of the night.

    consider me on the chris johnson bandwagon. I hope all the saints fans in my auction fantasy league don't notice and i can get him for cheap

    Dude looked enormous and powerful. I had no idea he was so huge, in the first quarter when he got that tackle b4 Bulluck's pick6 he just swallowed the running back...our trenches on both sides of the ball are looking stellar. I'm real excited about this season, CJ had a big play in the first game, Vince had a huge scramble which leads me to believe that that nagging quad injury is history and Lendale looked like a bull. I know its the preseason and I know it's the Rams, no need to remind me, but this is still exactly what you would hope to see out of the Titans, handling teams with ease that cant hang with us

    Just watched the game...

    I wish our Vets played for longer to get a better feel for how the 1's stacked up. They looked really good, but not enough time for me to feel confident in that.

    However, it was clear our depth was much better than their depth.

    That's not saying much. They sucked.

    I felt good about this game, although I am still worried about depth at CB. VY needs to show a little more, although I heard the incomplete passes were not his fault.

    I don't know the deal on the Gage pass. It looked like he slowed up looking for the ball.

    Ealy and P. Williams both dropped some balls they should have caught. It's time for someone to begin emerging from last year's rookie WR group.

    CB depth is shaky. Hill and King both had their problems. Hill remains a liability against the run. His coverage on the ball Bennett caught was good though. Hopefully, neither need to play much this season.
