Let's get it started with the inactives for today's game:
TITANS INACTIVES #11 WR Paul Williams
#21 CB Reynaldo Hill
#42 RB Chris Henry
#48 FB Casey Cramer
#64 G/C Leroy Harris
#82 WR Biren Ealy
#90 DT Randy Starks
#94 DE Bryce Fisher
Starting Lineup Changes no changes
COLTS INACTIVES #25 DB Michael Coe
#42 DB Brannon Condren
#54 LB Freddy Keiaho
#74 OT Charlie Johnson
#75 OT Michael Toudouze

Starting Lineup Changes
#50 Rocky Boiman starts at SLB in place of #94 Rob Morris

The team must be pleased with the progress of Corey Simon since Starks is now going on the inactive list.
There is no one thing or one player that cost us the game. It was an accumulation of mistakes at the wrong time. There were several mistakes. Vince's penalty, Jones' drop, Davis' drop and fumble, the missed 4th down early in the game, the deflected passes that we didn't pick. I can go on and on all day.
We have shown that we can play with teams though. We need to add more playmakers (some may already be on the roster...Griff), but it feels like we are turning the corner.
Out of town due to a death in the family, so I was unable to watch the game. I like the final score, despite losing. In our past 3 games, the Colts haven't beaten us with a margin larger than a field goal. I hope these are the beginnings of classic games between the two franshises. Also, it sounds like Vince threw much better today, and that Roydell played great. I'm looking for toward the next game with the Colts, one that I can hopefully watch.
Also, two amazing statistics: Vince Young had a higher QB rating than Manning yesterday, and holy **** the Texans are 2-0!
VY showed he is heading the right way, but getting sacked on that last drive killed us, one of his biggest problems is rolling and slowing down and then trying to start running again and getting tackled from behind. And as Pitt said Roydell should be starting. We should be able to beat the saints, but there going to be fired up, as should we since this is our first monday night football game since 04, as we lost in a shot out to the chiefs with Volek at QB.
(on if he felt like he was seeing a glimpse of the future when he watched Vince Young, LenDale White and Reggie Bush in the 2005 BCS National Championship game)
Yeah. We were hopeful to get as many players from that game as we could, and we’ve got three or four of them on our team. I think [New Orleans] has only got one.
Lol! Now if only Vince, LenDale, and Griff can perform as well Monday as they did in the Rose Bowl. We all know how Vince did, but not many know that LenDale had the better day than Reggie, and Griffin had an INT in the redzone. I hope Griff gets more playing time against the Saints.
For those of you who don't know, this is basically a simulation using the Madden video game to predict who will win games. And, as anyone who actually plays Madden knows, most of the computer generated games don't really turn out right. Any team can win, though the higher rated team obviously wins most of the time, and any player can have a huge game. Nevertheless, its pretty entertaining.
Some interesting notes:
-The Saints run for 223 yards against a Titans defense that is only allowing 78 rushing YPG and hasn't allowed a 100-yard rusher all season. I mean, those are Titan rushing numbers.
-Vince notches his 3rd game in a row that he's completed 60% or more of his passes.
-The Titans' RB's only run 22 times;White 9 times, and Brown 10. Young ran 8.
-Our secondary shut down Marques Colston and Devery Henderson. Our nickelback apparently sucks, though, and allowed David Patten to have 80+ yards receiving and a TD.
-Brandon Jones had a great day. Roydell Williams did not.
-Its nice to see David Givens has recovered from his injury so fast. Welcome back David!
Boo lack of posting! Hooray triple-posting, post *****-ism!
Anyone know who the starters at WR are? I'm hoping Roydell is at least in the Top 3. I'd prefer:
#1 Eric Moulds (Possession Receiver)
#2 Roydell Williams (Deep Threat/Play Maker Receiver)
#3 Brandon Jones (Reliable, Over The Middle Receiver)
Jones looked winded in the Colts game. He needs to improve his conditioning. If he has the energy he should have had, and catches that 3rd down pass last week, we would have had a chance to win. Plus, Williams looked great last week, and from what I hear, caught EVERYTHING that was thrown to him, including a great catch on the sideline and a great catch in the endzone for a TD. Moulds stays at #1 since he has the experience, and takes the attention of the #1 CB. Williams has the potential to burn Jason David bad.
I'm not that worried. Don't get me wrong, Bush is a good player. But, I liked our D-Line, and Bulluck and Thornton are fast LB's. Not to mention, our safeties are good against the run. He may get one big play, and dissappear for the rest of the game. Thats what he's been doing this season apparently.
