Some quick thoughts on the Titans 3rd preseason game.
Bullet point thoughts from the first half:
-Jake Locker is inconsistent. He had some really nice throws- the TD to Nate Washington and the one across his body to Kendall Wright come to mind. There were also some throws he missed and some times he hung onto the ball too much. That is going to be life with Locker.
-The top three receivers on this team are really, really good. They are unquestionably the best group of three this team has had since they moved to Nashville. Throw in Delanie Walker, and this offense should be really fun to watch.
-The defense struggled once again. I still hold out hope that Ray Horton just doesn't want to show much in the preseason. That, however, is not an excuse for how terrible the tackling was once again.
-Sammie Lee Hill showed up in this one. He had a sack and a big stop on the 4th and 1 play.
Bullet point thoughts from the second half:
-Kendall Wright dropped a pass he should have caught to kill the only first team offense drive of the second half.
-It was good to see the first team defense come out and play well in the 2nd half.
-Maikon Bonani is now the leader in the Titans kicking competition- although they still could bring in someone who gets cut by another club
-Zach Mettenberger continues to show well for the most part. I think the Titans might have found a good one.
