Cowboys 20, Titans 17
Here's my take on last night's coverage of the Titans/Cowboys game by the Monday Night Football crew of Al Michaels and John Madden...
And now, 40-year old QB Vinnie Testaverde steps up and makes a pass to Keyshawn Johnson.
: It's amazing, you know. Vinnie just turned 40 and yet here is playing. And he's 40! Did I mention lately that Vinnie is 40?!?
You know, it's truely amazing that he isn't MVP of the league yet, like some guy was co-MVP last year for the Titans. Who was that?
I'm not sure, but you can sure bet one thing. He isn't 40, like Vinnie!
OK, I get it--Vinnie Testaverde is 40 and he's QBing the Cowboys. But ya know, after a few nice words about the Titan's first string offense--particularily Chris Brown, Tyrone Callico (please don't let him be too injured!), and Derek Mason, it was all about Vinnie and the Cowboys the rest of the night. Which, since the Titans weren't showing too much on offense or defense--instead choosing to utilize Friday's game against Green Bay as their final tune-up for the regular season--I guess there wasn't really a lot to say. But the fact that Madden couldn't stop talking about Vinnie and his being 40 really got old by the end of the first quarter.
As for the Titans, we looked pretty good on that first drive, led by McNair. Running game didn't look as solid as it has, but we were facing a better defense than we have. Chris Brown had one spectacular, long run for a TD and looked solid. The rest of the time, the running game wasn't much to write home about, really. Eddie George got no measure of revenge against us, rushing four times for three yards. All I can say is--I am so ready to kick off the regular season when the whole playbook is open and we got consistent effort for an entire game.
