|The Titans think Bo Scaife is a better option than Randy Moss.|
Thanks to a "bend-and-break "pass defense that allowed three Miami quarterbacks to combine for over 300 yards passing, the debut of Randy Moss in a Tennessee Titans' uniform was overshadowed by the team's disappointing 29-17 loss to the Dolphins.
Moss only caught one pass on the afternoon; a 26-yarder late in the game. Meanwhile, the Dolphin receiving threats, regardless of who was throwing them the football, were busy making life miserable for the Titans' pass defense as indicated by their cumulative 323-yard effort.
Up next, additional thoughts on today's Titans' loss.
S Tyrone Culver, DE Clifton Geathers, T Matt Kopa, T Lydon Murtha, CB Nate Ness, TE Mickey Shuler, QB Tyler Thigpen (#3 QB), WR Roberto Wallace
WR Kenny Britt, DT Marques Douglas, G Ryan Durand, WR Lavelle Hawkins, S Robert Johnson, T/G Troy Kropog, CB Ryan Mouton, QB Rusty Smith (#3 QB)
The big news is that while Vince Young is active, but Kerry Collins will be starting today's game. Justin Gage returns to the lineup, but Moss and Washington will be your starters at wideout. I think Gage gives you something different than those guys, so I'll be paying attention to how much work each of the wideouts gets and what kind of routes they run. Comparing Damian Williams' snaps to Gage's may be an interesting exercise.

As promised, in preparation for this week's AFC showdown between the Tennessee Titans and the Miami Dolphins, Total Titans exchanged a set of questions/answers with fellow Bloguin NFL site Phins Phocus.
The questions and answers provided insight on several topics pertinent to Sunday's Titans/Dolphins clash, including recent developments such as the Titans acquiring Randy Moss and the Fins going with one Chad (Pennington) over another (Henne) at starting quarterback.
The Total Titans/Phins Phocus Q&A exchange...after the jump.
After taking a look at the offense in the first part of our midseason review of the Titans, we now turn our attention to the defense. In the review of the defense after the first four games, I noted that all three areas of the defense -- d-line, linebackers and secondary -- were playing better than expected and some major questions in those areas were answered more than satisfactorily.
Because of the personnel changes in the secondary that were made in Week Eight at San Diego, it seems like a good place to start, after the break.no comments
