Collins Throws Three Touchdown Passes in Win

 

By Teresa M. Walker
The Associated Press

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – If Tennessee receiver Kenny Britt keeps playing like this, defenses won’t be able to focus only on stopping Chris Johnson.

Kerry Collins threw three touchdowns to Britt, who had the best game of his career two days after being involved in a bar fight, and the Titans scored a team-record 27 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 37-19 on Sunday.

Britt had the best receiving game in the NFL this season. He caught touchdown passes of 26, 80 and 16 yards and finished with 10 receptions for 225 yards — all career highs for the second-year player on a day when he didn’t start as punishment for his role in the fight.

“They see we got a receiver that can make plays downfield. They can’t just leave him one-on-one and things like that,” Johnson said. “It’s all up to them who they want to stop.”

Tennessee got 17 of its points off three Eagles turnovers — all by Kevin Kolb, who lost his starting job when coach Andy Reid announced after the game Michael Vick will start after the Eagles’ bye. «Read the rest of this article»

Terry McMoore supports Gabe Segovia

 

In a Letter to the Editor, Clarksville Tennessee resident Terry McMoore lays out his support for Mayoral Candidate Gabe Segovia

Gabe Segovia

Gabe Segovia

Gabe Segovia was my city council representative for eight years and while serving as my council representative, I found I could always depend on him to be there if I had a problem or question.

As the average citizen and on the outside looking in there was a lot I didn’t know about city government. He was always helpful in informing and educating me on the workings of government and especially city government. Additionally, while he served on the council from 1997 to 2005, he never missed a council meeting. His record is 96-0. He also served as vice-mayor of Clarksville for two years.

Segovia held monthly community meetings where he provided information to the public and citizens could present their concerns and ask questions about the city’s actions and programs. Those meetings were not restricted to just residents of his ward; people from anywhere in Clarksville were welcome and many became regular attendees. «Read the rest of this article»
