tv Fox 29 News at 10 FOX August 23, 2015 11:00pm-11:37pm EDT
>> kevin: talking about the titans looking for a quarterback. steve mcnair was great here in '95 through 2005. four playoff appearances. then after that, a lot of starting quarterbacks here. some have flashed. vince young, matt hasselbeck. jake locker. charlie whitehurst. that's a lot there, john. jake locker, they took him and thought he was going to be the guy. he retired last year in the off season. 26 years old. they've been looking. again, there's been some good moments in that group. they're hoping they found their guy in the middle, number 8. certainly showed some good moments tonight. he showed some good moments in the first few years. >> referee: five-yard penalty. still second down. >> kevin: as you pointed out earlier, things changed ail little bit when the regular season starts. there's going to be struggle at some point. >> john: absolutely. i think he understands that.
ken whisenhunt and this offensive staff has done a nice job of making him aware of that. so much is around you. do you have the offensive line to protect you. do you have the receivers in? this is the team. they were 2-14. there's a reason they got marcus mariota. they weren't very good. i think they're getting a lot better. marcus mariota is the first part of that equation. the offensive line, the way they played tonight. >> kevin: that's quite the hit by the rams. matt longacre. now we get a little pushing and shoving. no need for that with 1:54 to go. >> john: kevin, the last point on the titans moving forward, a young quarterback. his best friend is a good running game. they were awful last year running the football. they need more production.
tonight is any indication, they'll be a little better at a week one. >> kevin: jameis winston, the number one pick. the number two pick marcus mariota. pretty good scheduling. on the offensive line on your point. here we are, week two. trying to find the cohesiveness with the unit. this is late to be shuffling and trying to figure out and ken whisenhunt said i'm not happy at left guard and tackle. based on the early returns, did you like the combination? >> john: i'm sure they're going to like the results and what happened. they're going to keep this group together. the fact of the matter in the nfl these days, people are rotating and shuffling the offensive line on a regular basis. these guys are getting injured on a regular basis. they're going against tremendous athletes. i like the way it fits together. >> kevin: the rams are blitzing. meanwhile, big time completion
to coffman. he's going to take it all the way. touchdown. 56 yards. from division 3. threw a great pass. got drilled. good for him. >> john: one thing that's clear, mike mularkey, the tight end coach, they have depth. you're talking chase stevens, caught the pass. nine balls last week in atlanta. a lot of success here tonight. coffman with his second touchdown. he's a guy who is playing hungry. >> kevin: yeah. you talked earlier, john, you mentioned the term quick -- some of the guys don't make the team that someone else will see. tanney, second year in the league from division 3 school. he's got an arm, though. he's got instanding bls. the titans talked to us about him. extra point is up and it's good.
it's 27-7 with 1:45 to go. taylor lewan. got the hat, he's loving it. >> john: a well-thrown football. they're bringing a blitz. tanney does a nice job of recognizing that. getting the ball quickly and coffman eludes the free safety. well-thrown ball, on time. beats the blitz and coffman having a really fine preseason for the tennessee titans. >> kevin: you hit it on the tight ends. delanie walker and anthony pa san owe as -- a superlative group to pick out of that. >> john: you get the feeling that somebody on this roster will be playing for someone else at that position. they're deep at the tight end position. >> kevin: that's great. tanney, big moment for him.
ken whisenhunt, former tight end himself at georgia tech. liking that hookup. >> john: ken whisenhunt very realistic. he likes his team and what's going on. he understands they're not all the way there. he says we're going to grow together. the idea is let's be really good. let's grow together. he likes the young nucleus that they have. the additions that they have. >> kevin: there's rodriguez. thought about taking it out. now he's going to take a knee. >> john: jeff fisher so badly wants to get daniel rodriguez a touchdown. he said, i'm telling you before the preseason is -- he's got him returning back there. if they get down near the end zone, i promise jeff fisher will try to get it to him. i commend jeff fisher e understands what this young man has done for our country. it's a long shot that he makes the team. he's giving him every opportunity to make the most of this preseason. >> kevin: going to stay in for
the final 1 sclon :45. two more preseason games left. the rams team. going to get back in the playoffs. it has been a while for them. since 2004. here we go. over the middle. brown, running back. he's out to the 32. mannion the rookie. third round draft pick who is finishing it up. over the middle. he's got a good completion. alex bayer at tight end. number 82. clock is moving. >> john: one thing you like about sean mannion. coming from oregon state. he was coached by a guy who is coached a lot in pro football. mike riley. he understands that he watches the contents that he's going to
see. >> kevin: wow ri'shard anderson. number 38. he's a cornerback, john. i was amazed there. >> john: legal hit. lowers the target. hits through the target. it is the nfl, ladies and gentlemen. >> kevin: wow. meanwhile, time-out on the field. held on to the ball, though. >> kevin: we've got 56 seconds to go. second down for st. louis on their own 45. over the middle.
incomplete. the third and three coming up now. see if the rookie can make a couple more plays. before time runs out on this one. third down and three. over the middle. wow. good job staying on his feet. still staying on his feet. and a touchdown. malcolm brown. what a play. got to wrap up on defense. comes out of that.
hurdles another guy. very close there. but it looks like he kept his foot in. >> kevin: 54 yards. let's see on this angle if we have a better view. close. >> john: that one looked like he's out. i don't know. >> referee: previous play is under further review. >> kevin: they're going to look at it. mike pereira, you got anything? what do you think? >> i'm telling you, it's going to stand, baby. it's going to stand. >> kevin: we'll take a break. come back and find out the answer.

[brad] no war.listen to this wise man from the future. review your apartment on apartments-dot-com and you too could be a winner. change your apartment.change the world. what a view you've got.what a view. do you like it?do you enjoy the view? >> kevin: at this point this 39 seconds left in a preseason game. can we give the rookie a touchdown? we're still looking at it, mike pereira. >> i think it stands. it's all about angles. when you look at this. when you look from the outside -- >> referee: after reviewing the play, the ruling on the field stands as called. it's a touchdown. >> kevin: mike, when walt called back to new york, is anybody still up watching that. >> i think he's in bed in brooklyn at this hour. i think walt was on his own.
>> kevin: good job, walt. malcolm brown after a great effort. he'll get the 54-yard touchdown. there you go. feels good from him. free agent out of texas. extra point by michael palardy up and good. 39 seconds left. 27-14. tennessee. they'll get the ball back. we will finish up. we've got preseason again. todd gurley, tenth overall pick. next sunday, one more preseason game for you. the "nfl on fox." the texans and the saints. that one in new orleans. joe, troy and erin will be there for that. mike pereira will be there for that. curt and randy moss will be there for that. john lynch and i will not be there for that. we'll be getting ready for our first game, which i look forward to.

seattle. where they clearly showed you the things. ten first year ken whisenhunt. at least you could see some pieces and a lot on the quarterback in marcus mariota preseason. it's been positive. >> john: it's been very positive. look, the rams didn't have their best showing, but this is a team to contend with. everybody you talk to in this league, the most physical football team in football right there, the st. louis rams. so everyone is going to have to beat them. they aren't just going down. they have a lot of things to be positive as well. >> kevin: a new quarterback of their own. the time winds down here in nashville, tennessee. the titans walk away with a 27-14 victory. mariota and foles, quarterbacks who started tonight. there's whisenhunt and fisher getting a little talk. a lot of hey, have a nice seasons there for you fellas.

mariota. >> kevin: he walks off hands the gloves to a fan. >> pam: let me talk to you about the defense. what do you expect from the titans. coming in being a new player with the team. the likes of a dick lebeau. what are you expecting defensively for your group? >> a fly around. i expect us to have a great chemistry out there. the first half we showed what we were capable of. if we carry that to the regular season, we'll be a force. we have a lot of work to do. >> pam: how are you feeling and how do they plan to monitor? >> this organization is doing a great job as far as preparing me for the season. with the pectoral issues i've been having. we've been cautious throughout the training camp, throughout the mini-camps and the off season in general. i feel great. today was another step in that foundation that we're building. i'm glad for the -- i'm hopeful for the future of this team. >> pam: what can you tell people
