Titans-Cowboys one-liners

The Titans’ first-team offense was a disappointment, gaining just 78 total yards despite playing the entire first half.

Rookie Titans RB Javon Ringer was an exception, gaining 33 yards on five carries and turning in a 51-yard kickoff return.

Titans QB Vince Young was 3-for-9 for 33 yards, and a tipped pass was picked off.

The defense wasn’t much better than the offense, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

Said Titans LB Keith Bulluck of the first-team defense, “It’s always frustrating when you can’t get off the field.  But to not be
able to get off the field, but to only give up 7 points, you know, it
says something.”

The Cowboys’ first-team offense clicked to the tune of 249 yards and 17 points in the first half.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo completed 18-of-24 passes for 192 yards and hooked up with seven different receivers.

Felix Jones’ 42-yard reception set up his one-yard touchdown run and reminded the Cowboys what they lost when he got hurt last season.

The Cowboys’ special teams remained sloppy, including K Nick Folk’s second missed field goal of preseason.

Said Cowboys WR Roy Williams, “It was cool, but it doesn’t count.  I could always say that I caught the first ball in the stadium, but it doesn’t count.  Hopefully, come Sunday night against the Giants, I’ll be able to say I caught the first ball at Cowboys Stadium.”

    I’m surprised that Florio didn’t make you write a set of one-liners that only mention the “grossly oversized television”.

    Yeah, an overall Titans disappointment. I’m wondering if Jerry Jones didn’t plant some hard cash in various pocketses so as to ensure ‘his’ new venue got it’s first win.
    Can you imagine Jones’ crying and disappointment if he had lost?
    If he was willing to spend $40M on that gawdawful video screen, what’s a few hundred well-placed thousands more?

    Also, last year on 76 Kickoffs the Cowboys had 0 Touchbacks.
    Thus far with rookie kicker David Buehler handling the kick off duties in preseason they’ve had 2.
    Folk, it must be remembered, is valued for the FG kicking ability and is coming off of surgery.
    Hopefully he gets back on track soon.
    And that video screen is awesome.
    It just needs to be moved higher.

    Yeah, that must be the only way that an awesome team like the Titans can be beat. Has nothing to do with the fact that their starting QB is an old, 250 pound alcoholic and his backup would struggle to get a job in the UFL.

    Or it could be that the Titans made the playoffs and had one of the best records in the NFL last season while the Cowboys folded like a lawnchair. Again.

    But Mr Magoo, didn’t you know?
    The Cowboys are the flagship team of the NFL.
    Ahahahaha!

    The Cowgirls (and their owner) are a lot like their gawdawful new video monitor…
    The flashiest boob-tube(s) that money can buy, and it will still get it’s backside kicked because it’s a lot low-hanging and fruity.

    Don’t worry, you won’t be saying that. You’re Roy Williams, not Jason Witten.

    That (titans being terrible this year) could resemble the exact same thing the cowboys did. With the #1 overall seed in 2007, they end up flopping in 2008.
    #1 seed in 2008 flops in 2009? I smell a conspiracy.
