    I didn't watch game but I looked at the stats.

    I understand it's the first preseason game which teams do not game plan for. .. but McCown going 3/4 72 yards 1 touchdown is kinda alarming.

    Overdramatic? Are you sure about that? Or are you just trying to get a bunch of likes? Because I don't see anyone really being overdramatic other than Maker84 and TWW2.

    Did you watch him separate from Alabama's vaunted D in college? Or did you 'miss' that tape?

    Next, you'll tell me we should get rid of Murray and Henry and go get CJ again to 'right the ship!' lol

    Wow!

    A question for those that watch practice. Have the Titans used these OL groupings in practice?

    I'll have to watch the game again, but I'm not sure the Jets didn't do some game planning in this. Gotta watch the tape!

    The whole...we were playing vanilla...ain't gonna fly next week! If you watched the Panthers first game, they changed up their regular D a lot and blitzed quite aggressively on game 1. And they have a penchant for throwing deep on offense!

    We had better wake up from this smack in the mouth or we are gonna get smacked DOWN!

    We thought we were gonna just show up and blow them away while we took some nice snaps...WRONG!

    Jesus y'all are in panic mode over here. It's the first preseason game. Yeah we looked awful but you can't judge the team on one or two drives, especially the first of the year.

    Our D will probably be middle of the pack this year but that's all they need to be with our offense. We have a legend for DC and we added good talent over the offseason. They'll be fine, trust in LeBeau.

    I wouldn't mind for some of this hype to die down. We have no business being division favorites until we prove we can consistently win in our division.

    Disguised LB and safety blitzes. Pretty chitty thing to do in preseason. LeBeaux dialed one up in the 2nd half aa a payback IMO.

    I agree but it was unsettling we played with the same faults as last year.. And our 1st OL, especially Kline, was bent repeatedly. We didn't pick up blitzes when Jones was out.

    Lots to work on.

    This was exactly what we needed. No injuries and a wakeup call.

    I really liked the play of Jayon Brown and Aaron Wallace. They both flashed their athleticism.

    Byard looked very good.

    I specifically focused on Dodd when he was in the game and he did not impress at all. Just a slow first step when rushing the passer, looks awkward trying to drop into coverage, and didn't do a great job of setting the edge in the run game. I hope to see improvement in the next few pre-season games. He played well into the 4th Q. I'd hope my 2nd rnd pick could beat a 3rd string OT.

    As for Tanney, is it just me or did you all notice that he struggles throwing spirals. The ball just flutters way to often for my liking. He is going to have to show some major improvement to make the team.

    Bring on the Panthers!!!

    Why do you think our offense is gonna be so good? Mariota looks like he hasn't gotten any better and he's never had a strong arm either. The receiving core is better but there isn't an absolute game breaker, maybe Corey Davis can be that guy.

    I forgot to mention Aaron Wallace and Kalan Reed. They had nice games as well.
