    A lot is riding on this game for many players with first cuts looming.

    It looks like the starters will play into the third quarter. Though I don't expect a lot of scheme, I do hope we see Loggains open up the playbook beyond the first few pages.

    I'll be more focused on the first-team defense. The Falcons are loaded and this will be a big test for the DL as they'll need to find some pressure on Ryan or it'll be a long day for the Titans secondary.

    I see no chance we look good in this game on defense. Our corners are clearly a step below the average NFL player.

    Unless something dramatically changes quick, it's going to be a long long year

    Maybe it's just preseason and we are holding everything for the real season... But at the moment, that's how I view this team.

    I'll be looking to see if we're able to finish drives instead of FG's. If we do have a chance for FG's, hope we make those. It's weird saying that because it's been a long time since we had a FG problem. I know it's only one game, but shocking Bironas missed two chip shots.

    Of course, the D-line pressure must be there to help out the DB's.

    Locker's real first game taking the field was at Atlanta in 2011. He nearly rallied and brought us back to win, so I'm excited to see him play Atlanta again.

    Guys, it's preseason. I'd rather us go 0-4 than 4-0, so our coaches know what to fix.

    That's basically my take on pre-season every year too.

    It would be nice to go to work on Monday and get some preseason respect from my Falcon friends.

    This is the best scenario we could ask for. 3rd preseason game against the high powered offense of the Falcons. This will be a true test for our defense, even though they won't have Roddy White.

    I actually believe we come out and surprise the Falcons offense. I also believe we run the ball down their throats all night.

    Can't wait for this game.

    The only thing I want out of preseason is no injuries.

    I think our offense is gonna score some points this game but our defense is gonna get destroyed.
