Roydell needs to be starting

Cashmoney 09-16-2007 11:48 PM

guys i hate to say it but vince cost us this game. he needs to quit taking sacks and play a little bit smarter.

Pit Bull #53 09-17-2007 12:10 AM

What he needs to do is run more.

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.

TitanHope 09-17-2007 01:32 PM

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!

TitanHope 09-18-2007 01:12 AM

Possibly the best picture I could find taken during the game:

I think I saw that on one of the highlights. That when Finnegan made the pick?

smittyjs 09-18-2007 10:27 PM

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.

Fisher sent out his Friday practice report.

I my favorite question/answer:


(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.

TitanHope 09-22-2007 07:05 PM

Double post! Yay!

Here's ESPN's NFL Madden '08 Forecast of the Titans/Saints game.

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!

And yes, I know its just a game. But still...

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.

Pit Bull #53 09-23-2007 06:41 PM

Haven't heard anything, but I hope it's Jones and Roydell on the outside, with Moulds in the slot.

I'm looking for Albert to be dominant tomorrow night. We need Odom to do something too against their RT.

Scariest thing to me is defending screen passes to Bush.

TitanHope 09-23-2007 07:18 PM

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.

Pit Bull #53 09-23-2007 07:30 PM

We get consistently gashed by screen passes. We haven't been able to stop them in years. Maybe the Saints won't exploit that, but with a guy as fast as Bush, I'm worried.

TitanHope 09-23-2007 08:13 PM

Well, Sean Payton's play calling has been terrible. So there's a good chance that we won't get exploited, and he'll continue to throw toss-runs and make Bush "dance" between the tackles.

TitanHope 09-24-2007 06:20 PM

Young seems hell bent and determing to throw the ball successfully against New Orleans...lets hope this is a good thing and not bad...

Cashmoney 09-24-2007 09:08 PM

so far so good for vince's passing

TitanHope 09-24-2007 10:09 PM

Yeah, but that INT was horrible. Everyone was worried about him over throwing receivers. But he's actually under throwing receivers. Two of those under throws were for INT's, too. Its halftime, and I think we're all gotten the point that Vince can throw. Now its LenDale and Brown's turn to run the ball and get the #1 running offense in the league running.

Geo 09-24-2007 10:41 PM

Michael Griffin is a special teams stud, the 1st round rookie continually finds ways to impact the game in that area.

TitanHope 09-24-2007 11:37 PM

Griffin's special teams abilities were a big part of why he was drafted. He's a special teams ace, plain and simple. He returns kicks, blocks punts, and can play gunner. He does it all, and not to mention he can play CB, FS, and SS.

Also, 31-14 :)

Pit Bull #53 09-24-2007 11:40 PM

Nice win. Vince came out sharp, but seemed to get a little careless when he threw that INT. He seems to do that from time to time.

You could tell they went into an offensive shell after the forearm issue, but it worked. The big plays on D were great. Bulluck is still my favorite player.

I'm ready to see Griff on the field for the defense.

Can't help but to think what our offense could be with a stud RB. Can Chris Henry be that? Most people would say no. We'll see. But LenDale is what he is, and while effective, we need a dynamic element.

Pit Bull #53 09-24-2007 11:45 PM

Goin with old faithful for a while. Clover Jeez throwback

smittyjs 09-24-2007 11:46 PM

I love keith Bulluck.... :), VY looked improve as a passer, only bad throw that stood out to me was the pick. White and CB are doing there part, defense made plays off of bad plays.

TitanHope 09-24-2007 11:49 PM

Honestly, I do believe Bulluck sealed a spot on the plane to Hawaii tonight. Nothing will help him more than a game like this on primetime television.
