Tonight will be the most extensive work the offense has gotten this preseason. The offense will probably put up some pretty good numbers since they will play a couple of series against Green Bay's twos.
The receivers are going to be the most interesting group tonight. I am now convinced that they will carry 7. Tonight could determine the fate of Justin Gage, Courtney Roby and Biren Ealy. I think those 3 guys are fighting for 2 spots. I think Roby needs to make some plays tonight or it could be the last time we see him in a Titans' uniform.
The defense will probably get 3 or 4 series against Favre and the Packers' 1st team offense. It will be important for them to continue the progress they have made this preseason in those chances.
Michael Griffin will probably get another start at corner tonight. This will be his chance to shine against a Packers' offense that will be without Donald Driver. If Griffin plays well tonight I think he will be the starter week 1.
Watch the free safety reps. I was convinced that Lamont Thompson had earned his starting job, but some people close to the team still think Lowry will be starting at Jacksonville. It will be interesting to see how the reps are split tonight. I really wish Lowry would have gotten all of the reps with the 1st team if he were going to be the starter. Loyalty can be a good thing, but when it comes at the expense of the team it is a bad thing.
Enjoy the final tune-up tonight before they count.
