FOXBOROUGH, Mass. _ As expected, the Tennessee Titans will be without their top three defensive backs as they face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots today.

Cortland Finnegan, already declared out with a hamstring injury, will be joined on the sidelines as expected by Nick Harper and nickelback Vincent Fuller.

That leaves Ryan Mouton and Jason McCourty as starters with Cary Williams coming in in nickel situations.

Other Titans inactives include defensive linemen Jevon Kearse and Sen’Derrick Marks, guard Leroy Harris, tight end Craig Stevens and receiver Lavelle Hawkins.

Patriots inactives are receiver Joey Galloway, running back Fred Taylor, cornerback Terrence Wheatley, safety James Sanders, offensive linemen Matt Light and Rich Ohrnberger, linebacker Adalius Thomas and defensive lineman Ron Brace.

To say this performance in unacceptable is almost laughable. This is the type of game where coaches get fired and players get cut. Ive always been a Fisher fan and never felt that you should throw the baby out with the bathwater. BUT the cardinal sin in sports is to quit on your team. This team has quit. The effort was there in the Pittsburg game but has all but went out the window in the last few games. No fire, no heart and zero pride..Unbelievable.......Gruden or Shanahan are you by the phone?
