Packers-Titans one-liners

With an extended chance to win the backup job thanks to Matt Flynn’s shoulder injury, Packers QB Brian Brohm completed 20 of 28 passes for 154 yards.

Packers DT B.J. Raji left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury, but coach Mike McCarthy indicated it wasn’t serious.

The Packers’ backup cornerbacks did very little to distinguish themselves on Thursday night.

Titans WR Dominique Edison helped his chances of earning a roster spot with five catches, 90 yards and two touchdowns.

QB Vince Young threw the touchdown to Edison and ran for another score in a performance that may help the Titans feel more comfortable with him as their backup.

Titans KR Mark Jones had a 21-yard punt return and a 44-yard kickoff return to put a happy ending on top of a preseason filled with injury.

    Why so serious?

  2. Get Ready Titans for the beat down of your lifetime as the knock-off Oilers next week. It’s on now.
    Go Steelers!!!!!!!!!!

  3. CB’s #1,2,4, did not even play for the Packers.
    5th ,6th, and 7th string CB’s got injured. So a practice squad receiver was pressed into CB duty.
    The WR played CB better than 2 of the rookie free agents.
    Giving 4th, 5th, and 6th string players so much playing time last night didn’t seem to solve much except that I feel less sympathy for those cut.
    Most of those cuts are deserved.

  4. steeler4life,
    Get real. There will be a beating next week, but it’ll be us beating you. Your still bitter about the beating we put on ya’ll last year. Sure, ya’ll won the big one, but its because the Ravens got a fluke win in the playoffs, and we didn’t get to play the Steelers. But you will see next week.

  5. I for one am glad we had the Titans last night. I think it exposed some holes in our running defense that we can spend some time to fix.
    I’m also glad we got beat so we can stop hearing the ridiculous “The Lions went 4-0 in pre-season last year, and look how that turned out!” comments.

  6. Sparta,
    Your fans were the ones puffing out thier chests about how good the team looked.
    So, why would you be suprised about getting comments thrown back at you?
    Seriously dude?

  7. Underwood had some struggles, but he’s a player. He makes the team. Remember, he couldn’t attend OTAs, because his school hadn’t let out. The dude will mature.
    Also, Pat Lee tweaked his knee on a 44 yard kickoff return.
    Yeah, we had Swain back there, a practice squad WR.

  8. I put a goddammm comment up here at like 11:06 this morning…WTF?
    The funny thing is, it was actually nice–for once.
    Believe it or not.
    So here it goes, again:
    I was commending the Pack and old Google Eyes Rodger-the-dodger for looking sharp this off-season.
    They may very well be a veritable offensive juggernaut this year.
    The question is the Capers-conversion to 3-4–will it be sufficient on its opening night , especially given the stiffy Lovie’s had for beating the Pack ever since he was hired?
    I also asked about Atari Nintendo Sega X-box Bigby’s status.
    Either way, next Sunday night can’t come soon enough.
    P.S. Have Raji rub some bacon fat and marshmallow on that ankle–it’ll bring the swelling right down.

  9. Ya gotta love blind Steeler homers.
    But don’t worry everyone. Anytime the Steelers lose you won’t see or hear a dang thing from any of those jokers.
    I always love how they run their mouths big time when their team is doing well but they’ll always hide in the shadows when the team isn’t doing well.
    I’ve found almost all Pittsburgh fans are fairweather fans.
    After last night, Edison’s performance made Paul Williams expendable. If they can be patient with him, he may develop into an excellent WR.

  10. @ Dewey
    I’m not to concerned with the conversion. That last few times Capers has gotten a hold of a defense the turnaround has been quick. The guys record as a head coach is not good but he has also been at the helm of two of the last three expansions but you can’t argue with his success as a d-coordinator.

  11. I’m with ya Dewey, can’t wait for next Sunday. Should be a good game, and should give an early idea as to who’s gonna take the division.
