Titans 14 Bears 13 Quick Recap

It is always good to win, whether it counts or not, but this team should not walk away from this game feeling very good about themselves. The defense looked pretty terrible all night long. At one point I had to double check and make sure Chuck Cecil wasn't over there calling the plays. Jay Cutler picked them apart pretty badly.

The offense didn't look as sharp as they had in earlier games, but that is somewhat to be expected against a defense as good as the Bears.

Click through the jump to see my bullet point thoughts that I posted as I watched the game.

  • There seemed to be a lot of holes in the zone early for Jay Cutler.
  • Nate Washington should have caught the first ball Matt Hasselbeck threw to him.  It looked like he was afraid to get hit.
  • Should we be worried about Bironas?
  • Nice pursuit by Akeem Ayers to take Matt Forte out behind the line.
  • Jovan Haye with a nice push inside to blow up a running play.
  • Nice to see a good return from Marc Mariani.
  • Barrett Ruud got flattened by Forte.  That isn't a good sign.
  • My boy Damian Williams had a really rough night.
  • Jamie Harper has made a huge transition from the first preseason game until now.  He might push Javon Ringer for carries.
  • On the ball Hasselbeck threw up to D-Will, he should have made the same throw to Jared Cook who had inside position on the guy that was covering him.
  • Did Chuck Cecil call this game?
  • Sweet hurdle by Ahmard Hall.
  • The Titans were really luck to only be down 10-7 at the half.
  • Nice stop on third and short by Colin McCarthy.
  • Karl Klug is going to be a really good player.  I am excited to see what he can become as he develops.
  • Tommie Campbell is really fast.  It would be nice to see him push Frank Walker off of this roster.  I am not sure he is there yet, but that sure was a nice play tonight.
  • Good to see Rennie Curran sniff out a screen and blow it up.  
  • How was there no flag on the deep ball from Jake Locker to Yamon Figurs?
  • Wow on the Chad Cunningham play.  That is really all I have to say about that one.
  • Tim Shaw did something Donnie Nickey never did in his career- break up a pass.
