The post to which those who saw TEN @ MIA should respond...

McNair looked good throwing the ball, the whole 14 times he did. If the Titans had actually thrown the ball more, the score could have been 31 to 7.

Yes McNair has more ability to do much better, but if you crunch the numbers he still went away with a 101% QB rating right ? Just something to consider :D

His YPC weren't too good though.


I didn't watch the game nor am I a Gordon apologist, but TEN was amongst the better teams against the run last year (for example, my memory might be faulty on this, but didn't they hold Deuce McAllister to something like 8 yards on 5 carries last season?).


Tennesse was number 1 against the run if memory serves me.

Let's break this game down shall we?


Jay Fiedler sucks and lost his starting job. Feeley will be the starter from now on.

Booker and Chambers never had a chance to get going. Feeley locked onto McMichael and Tennessee was giving up the middle once they got the lead, so Feeley never really looked elsewhere.

Gordon looked ok, but it's hard to judge a running back against the Titans defense.

As for the Titans..Miami has a GREAT secondary. The Titans just played smashmouth since they didn't have Calico and took it to the Dolphins. Brown looks very, very good. If he can avoid the injury bug, he will be a top-ten back.

But here's the deal on the Titans offense:

Jeff Fisher loves to rush, rush, rush the ball. If he could get away with it, yesterday's game would be how he would play every game. But that won't win in today's NFL week after week. Next week's game against the Colts will be very interesting. I think the Titans are one of the few teams in the NFL who can throw two COMPLETELY different offensive looks at the defense. They can pound the ball all game long, or they can open it up and throw for 350 yards.

I don't like anyone on the phins this year t make an impact...but the titans could be a decent weeklystarting core for your team...and no us folks in the ghetto of canada don't get satellite, at least not american...they took away our priveleges when peeps all were stealing waves...not me though }:-)


I read on Rotoworld that McNair only thew 2 passes in the second half. I have Mason on my squad so I was a bit dissapointed and worried until I found out that he had 70% of all the passing yards.

McMichael seemed to get into a lock with Feely. It should also be noted that at this time I would have suspected that Tenn was playing the game not to lose. McNair only passed the ball twice and they were running constantly. Therefor I suspect their defense was playing a little softer under neath so as to not let a big play develop. However, considering Miami's offense this might be the case every week huh? Down in the 4th and passing underneath because your too afraid to go deep and lose your job if it gets picked off.

Gordon - He looked very good to me considering that...

1. He's only been with the team a couple of days
2. He only played half a game
3. TN run D is awesome
4. Half the field was dirt (I hate combo Baseball/Football fields) and slipped on it several times trying to cut to a hole.

He will do fine as a #3 RB I think and will see lots of time next week with both Morris and Minor hurt

Fiedler vs Feely - There are two real issues here. The Fins O-line is absolutely atrocious.....Peyton would look bad behind them. Feely looked a lot better under pressure and Wanny has named him the starter for next week.

Brown runs hard and I think he likes to hit instead of juke a would be tackler. He has good power, but not great speed. He was running at an angle away from his pursuers on his big run and they still caught him. Looks like Eddie when he was young.
That's my two cents and it's worth every penny of it!

So what you're saying is that Gordon showed flashes of brilliance?

I certainly didn't see flashes of brilliance from Gordon. He had one decent run, but I didn't see much more than that.

But then Travis Minor caught a screen pass for a nice gain, as well.

Unless you are in a deep league, Randy McMichael is the only offensive player for the Dolphins that I'd feel comfortable starting on my team right now.
