    I agree that one preseason game is a bit premature...but I just remember some folks on this site acting like he was the second coming of Joe Montana or something...had to rub it in a bit lol.

    I have a good feeling about this team. Again, one preseason game.....but I think we are going to be much more fun to watch this season than we have in the past couple of seasons.

    I was really impressed with the low number of penalties in the game...we got a bit sloppy with the 2nd half scrubs, but early on we were pretty disciplined. That is a very welcome change, and one I hope continues.

    All in all I'm impressed for a rookie coaching staff and QB. Munch has said he wants discipline, he got it. I think tonight that is the biggest difference from last year. I only missed a few minutes, but the 57 minutes I saw I only saw a few minor Titan penatlies.

    Haas and Locker look good. O-Line opened some big holes in the 1st qtr. for Ringer. 1st string d-line and linebackers look stout. This could shape up to be a good team.

    Like Hawk,Stevens,cook,LOCKER and that one DT I think his name is klung or something like that.

    The D is not back YET I'm gonna wait specially on the play calling because the Viking did not show up to play today.

    I am not suprised that they had a good showing tonight, but I am smiling about it alot. Titans played the 43 defense all night long (of course nickle on 3rd downs) with some blitzes here and there. We havent seen 85% of what this defense will be doing once the whole thing is installed.

    Jake Locker, you showed poise and confidence when you fumbled the snap, picked it up, and threw it for a long touchdown.

    Welcome this change because things had definitely gotten very stale in regards to Fisher's last couple years.A pair of six game losing streaks and Kerry Collins playing about two more years than he should've.But we took the broom and dusted the cobwebs out and looks like we've gotten a clean fresh approach.Seems like we have a breath of fresh air and new ideas once again.

    Tickets should definitely start to sell out now after the fans saw a performance like this...or maybe they will when CJ finally signs...all I know is I'm happy with our new coaches, our new players, and our new playcalling! (had some really creative and aggressive playcalling, especially on the offensive side of the ball LOVE IT)

    Jake Locker's line was very nice tonight. 7/10, 1 TD 0 INT, 9 yards/attempt. It's only the first preseason game, but it's still nice to see him perform well. I won't actually watch the game until tomorrow on NFLN, but the general consensus is that he handled himself well and showed good poise in the pocket. Golly, it sure is nice to be optimistic and excited about our QB situation

    Also we have to cut the players who didn't do well some slack, the lockout affected everyone. This first week of games is going to be more sloppy than ever. That being said, it says a lot about our rookies when they step up like this. Good job by the coaching staff so far and can't wait till next weekend.

    This coaching staff has brought a breath of fresh air, the players are responding well, and the rookies are very impressive. I have a good feeling about this team.
