    The Titans plan to play cornerbacks Tommie Campbell and Alterraun Verner with the first team for about a quarter each against the Falcons on Saturday.

    Campbell and Verner are trying to lock down the starting job opposite Jason McCourty.

    “It is one of those things where you always want to see guys separate and make things easy for us,’’ coach Mike Munchak said. “But when guys are playing around the same, you are still evaluating what’s the best for the team and that decision hasn’t been made yet.”

    Julio/Roddy will destroy them both.

    It shouldn't be close; Campbell hasn't done anything in pre-season yet. Verner is the clear cut winner.

    Verner was the clear-cut winner until he got worked by that Bengals back up. ATV was getting smoked in that game. Looked real bad.

    They REALLY want Campbell to win this job IMO. Trying to give him every chance.

    No idea... I don't pay attention to preseason scratches.

    If Julio/Roddy don't play, we should win this game... not that it really matters either way.

    I don't think Gonzo will be playing which is unfortunate because I want to see what our coverage of TEs looks like... It's been better than usual so far, I suppose - other than when Davis was left wide open for a TD when we played the Skins.

    EDIT: Never mind... Just saw Gonzo will be playing. We'll lose, no doubt.
