Titans on NFL Monday Night tonight; Unsure of QB "third spot"

Aug. 23rd 8 p.m. Arizona Cardinals at Tennessee Titans ESPN

The first round of roster cuts is just over a week away and final cuts are just a few days after that, so the scrutiny at competitive positions grows by the moment.

"We haven't decided yet whether we'll keep two, three or four (quarterbacks), so there's competition between all those guys,'' offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger said. "But if there was to be a third spot, then (Simms and Smith) are fighting for it."

Smith has displayed a cannon of an arm, proving especially adept at the difficult task of dropping passes between cornerback and safety on sideline routes. But too much confidence in his arm — as well as inexperience — gets the best of him at times as well.

"I think I've done a good job improving from day one," Smith said, "but what I'd like to work on is to stop making the bonehead mistakes."

I wonder what quarter Smith will get in tonight?

I know this game they will be playing all 4 QB's. I would figure either 3rd or 4th quarter.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Expect to see a lot of Simms tonight, and you can only hope that he looks terrible again. Rusty hasn't sealed the deal, even though he's played decent, so any help that he can get would be great! I'll be watching

If had to pick, would say 4th as well…

Most of the Titans fans on thier board say it should break down like this.

VY-1st quarter or 2-3 Series

KC- 2nd Quarter or whatever is left of the 1st

CS- 3rd quarter and maybe some of the 4th.

RS- 4th Quarter or less.

Its Simms job to loose (and hes looked bad), Rusty just needs to be solid and not spectacular most likely.

I'll be watching for sure!  I believe that Rusty will get a long look tonight, maybe even the entire 4th quarter.  Very important for Rusty not to force things–the great thing is Simms will get his time first and if he blows it (good chance), Rusty just needs not to turn the ball over and put up some good stats!

Young got most of the work in the first half, with Collins seeing action since the 12:00 mark of the second quarter…

After a Titan's score makes it 17-3, there is 5:00 left in the third.

#87 Hawkins pulled a "Harmon Hop" on a reverse to set up the score.

That will be on ESPN's Sport Center for sure ;D

Hopefully Rusty makes it in…….

Collins has weak 2nd qtr., 3 possesions and only 3 for 8 for like 20 yards. Good drive to open the 3rd qtr, though!
