The rest of the AFC will have to wait until the regular season in order to get a first-hand look at whatever changes first-year coach Mike Munchak has made to the way the Tennessee Titans do things.

Now into the second month of the owners’ lockout of players, the National Football League office went ahead and released the basics of the preseason matchups Tuesday. Specific dates were not announced.

The Titans will face four NFC opponents — Minnesota and Chicago at home, St. Louis and New Orleans on the road.

They will open against Minnesota on the weekend of Aug. 11-14. The following weekend they will go to St. Louis, then back home for Chicago and finally to New Orleans. The game against the Saints will be on Sept. 1 or 2.

The league expects to settle on official dates and times sometime in the next month.

It is the second straight year Tennessee’s preseason schedule has been limited to all NFC opponents. Last season it was 2-2 against Seattle, Arizona, Carolina and New Orleans. Before that, the last time in happened was 2005.

I like when NFL preseason won-loss records are posted in the paper. Got to get that preseason playoffs home field advantage for the preseason Super Bowl.

I have a question for TITAN1 and all the other DIE HARD TITAN Fans. Since the Chicago Bears will be playing here during the Pre-Season and their QB use to play for a college team that is in this city, will the people attending the game that opt to wear Jay Cutler's #6 Bears jersey that night get the same TREATMENT from you and your ilk that people who opt to wear Peyton Manning's #18 jersey when the Colts play in Nashville are greeted with from you and your ilk of Titan fans? Are you going to tell them that this is the Titans town and if they want to pull for Jay Cutler, then they should move to Chicago, just like you tell Colts fans!!?
