Will the Titans be ready by regular season?

Posted Thursday, August 27, 2009, at 2:46 PM

With two pre-season games remaining, how close do you think the Tennessee Titans are to being ready to open the regular season against the Steelers?

A year ago at this time it seems everyone except the Titans could see they were in trouble at quarterback with Vince Young having problems. I'm ready to see someone, Collins, Young or Ramsey make a really good showing at quarterback.

I don't think the defense has looked good and the offensive line is getting waaaaay too many penalties and opening far too few holes.

Rookie Javon Ringer has been the only bright spot among the running backs. Chris Johnson was great last season but he seems too concerned with a catchy nickname this year and as I recall he came to pre-season camp referring to himself as A Coach's Dream. The way he's run so far in pre-season could be giving Jeff Fisher nightmares.

What's going on with all the hamstring injuries? Do the coaches and trainers need to study this situation?

I have not been impressed with the Titans pre-season play. Hopefully they will get serious about their play as the season opener approaches. I do believe that they have the material to make a deep run in the playoff this year. I also think you will see several veterans falling off the roster as they pair down to the finial 53.
