Tennessee Titans drop preseason opener to Seattle Seahawks 27-17


Tennessee TitansSeattle, WA – The Tennessee Titans traveled to the Seattle Seahawks for their first preseason game Saturday night. The Titans started out on the wrong foot as starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck threw two interceptions in his limited time on the field. Hasselbeck was 4-5 passes for 45 yards.

“On the first play, I had a choice to take a shot down the field to Jared Cook or take a quick completion to Nate Washington on the left. I decided to throw to Nate, and it was kind of a freak thing,” stated Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. “It reminded me of my first pass the last time I was in this stadium, which was intercepted against the Saints.  I remember Pete (Carroll) coming up to me after that pass and saying not to worry about it because we had the rest of the game to play.  It was disappointing it started that way, not at all how I envisioned it.” «Read the rest of this article»

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of August 12th, 2012


Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesNonfarm payrolls rose more than expected in July, reducing fears that the economy may be headed back into recession. One shouldn’t put too much weight on any one particular month, especially July. However, the figures are consistent with the broad range of data suggesting moderate growth over the near term – not especially strong, but not terribly weak either.

At face value, the July payroll increase (+163,000) was consistent with the view that mild winter weather pulled forward seasonal gains that would have occurred in spring and early summer. Nonfarm payrolls averaged a 151,000 gain over the first seven months of 2012, vs. a 153,000 pace in 2011. «Read the rest of this article»
