Good morning, Nashville. This weekend was a good one for the Titans, who took down the Buffalo Bills 21-18 in their first preseason game of 2009. We hear Kerry Collins put on quite a show until Vince Young took over in the second quarter. The opening game was not without incident, however, as runningbacks Chris Johnson and LenDale White missed the bus to Fawcett Stadium in Ohio because Johnson was too busy tending to his gold teeth and twittering about it. This is why we love you, CJ.
