"Our job is to make sure we give them the tools to do what we need to do," says Titans Video Director Anthony Pastrana.
Deep inside Baptist Sports Park, just down the hall from where the players have all their meetings, is a small sign that says "Titans Video".
"Craig, everything is ready," says Pastrana. "Ok, Bobby did you give me your card?"
Pastrana's a 16-year NFL veteran who uses a computer and video highlights of the Titans and opponents like the Pittsburgh Steelers to give the coaches and players information they can use to turn practice time into a winning performance on Sunday.
"This is what we did well," says Pastrana. "This is what we didn't do well on this play. This is what we need to improve on. Purely analysis and a teaching tool."
The money shots come from where Titans Team Video's Craig Patterson is shooting what the coaches call "all 22". The video team cuts up every practice and game into individual segments which get scrutinized by the Titans position coaches and players. Make no mistake: The video guys are all in every week.
"You do feel good or bad either way," says Patterson. "You know you feel like you're responsible a little bit because, you know, what we do is a tool."
Patterson, who shoots so much of that practice and game video, is from Pennsylvania, and he was a Pittsburgh Steelers fan when he was a kid. Craig says when he walks into LP Field Thursday, it's all about the Titans. TONIGHT on FOX17 NEWS at 9: more Titans action. Stacy McCloud is taking you inside Kenny Britt's crib. You can see plenty more in our Pre-game special, CLASH ON THE CUMBERLAND, ONLY ON FOX this Thursday night. It starts at 6:30pm and is full of everything you need to know to get ready for the game.

Hicks was arrested Tuesday on a charge of criminal simulation. He was jailed at the Washington County Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 bond, pending a court appearance Wednesday.
