    in a season...

    We haven't seen a QB produce even 1 stellar season stats wise, or a QB you could consistently win with besides McNair, and we've never had an elite QB since coming to Nashville..

    When you look at the few other teams that have suffered the same drought since 1998, playoff wins are hard to find.

    interesting stat. Did not know that. I did know McNair was over-romanticized by fans, but I figured even he had thrown for more than 25 at some point.

    That's pretty sad considering 25 TDs isn't even some great achievement these days. To be fair though, I believe you have to go back to like 2002 or something to find a Titan QB who actually started a full season for us (I looked it up not long ago but can't remember what the exact year was). That's the much more troubling stat to me.

    We've had zero consistency/reliability at the QB position pretty much our entire existence as a franchise.

    2002 is correct with regard to the last time we had a qb play a full season for us. very sad indeed and wish we could find consistency at the most important position.

    Sad thing is I think Locker really could be that guy. But he just cannot stay healthy. I know some people say "injury prone" doesn't really exist and it's really just bad luck. Whatever you want to call it... injury prone... unlucky, some guys just have a knack for getting sidelined. And that's an unacceptable quality in a franchise QB. Maybe if you got a guy like Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers you suck it up and deal with it. But considering where Jake is at, after 3 years in the league, unfortunately I think we just gotta move on.

    Matt Hasselbeck, most passing yards in a season by a Titan.
