So with the new coin toss rules anyone think Tomlin will ever defer?

Sorry, what's the new rule?

Second half coin toss: Clubs will now have the option to defer the opportunity to kick or receive the kickoff to the second half.

"It now gives coaches a third option," says Jeff Fisher, Tennessee Titans head coach and co-chairman of the NFL Competition Committee.

Hell, we made their entire first team offense look unstoppable. Let's see if Lefty can slug his way to the endzone and get us back in this game.

I can't wait to see how DVSONE tries to spin Mendy's poor performance tonight. On second thought, I don't care. As long as he doesn't do it here. 8)

I know we had a kickoff returned for a TD, but aside from that, special teams have looked pretty solid. I really wish we had Sep, though.

I think Tasker made it up. If there would have been 5 minutes he would have called it the 5 minute offense.

Haha, you're wacky. I'm honestly not saying anything about American pride. I just thought you was a Kobe fan, mane. It's nice seeing him as the leader of the USA team, playing hardcore D, being unselfish, etc. Perhaps it'll shut some of the Kobe haters up (not a chance).

That said, Rucker should've brought that pass down. :cry:

SteelTorch

I am a Kobe fan, but I'm also not thrilled about his "playing for big $$$ in Europe" comments. He makes plenty of money here in both salary and endorsements. More money than he could ever spend.

Flasteel
08-14-2008, 10:29 PM
Rucker should have hauled that in. Oh well, nice effort by Dixon and the offense late.

The first team defense looked like ****, but I thought Ben moved our offense very well. Could have got better play by the first team line, especially in the running game, but if the first team O is in the whole game I have the feeling there would have been no problems.

Leftwich didn't look good at all, but he deserves a little slack for being here only four days. Dixon looked much better than last week and it looks like Baker gas finally made his first noise...Reid is gone.

True. 8)

Final thoughts: I'm not worried about defense. I was hoping I'd see more out of Woodley, but that's about it.

Actually, I'm starting to worry more about the D-line than the O-line. Hampton still looks fat and out of shape, and Keisel is still Keisel. I'm hoping to God we don't get a repeat of last season.

Any word on how the first-team O-line looked, Hartwig in particular?

eniparadoxgma
08-14-2008, 10:36 PM
Agreed about the Kobe comments, but I think Lebron and some others have said the same. Don't think it'd ever happen, but who likes hearing that crap?

Anyhow, I thought our LBs played alright from what I saw (I didn't catch the whole game). Silverback got to the QB. Timmons' speed is becoming more and more apparent. I liked the Baker sighting, and the Spaeth sighting. Reid is like the cow that gives you milk...then kicks the bucket over. He looked good on some plays, then completely screwed up on others.

Holmes and Ben are really starting to connect IMO. I'm thinking we're going to be seeing a lot of that happening this year.

Anyhow, we lost a preseason game. Time to call off the season, and start making next year's mock drafts...
