    The Titans have a choice to make soon.

    Do they continue with the Jake Locker experiment, or draft his eventual replacement?

    Locker’s shown flashes of being the kind of quarterback you expect when you use the eighth pick in the draft on one, but injuries have kept him from showing it consistently.

    If new coach Ken Whisenhunt wanted to work with him, there’s a good chance Locker could flourish. But Whisenhunt’s also not beholden to Locker, and might not want to bother.

    With the 11th pick in the NFL Draft, the Titans have a chance to get the next one, though they have enough needs to justify giving Locker one last chance.

    Draft a QB, give locker his chance, where he'll fail miserably because he's made of glass. He's like Ryan Fitzpatrick in the manner he shows serious promise, but it's not that he breaks down and starts making mistakes, it's just that he breaks.

    I like Locker a lot, but I want a QB that can be there week in and week out and perform well.

    Nothing he has done has shown me he can be that guy. Do I hope he can? Yea. I also hope we win the super bowl next year and thats not happening.


    And dont tell me about glimpses. VY showed us glimpses. Chris Brown showed us glimpses. Andre woo.... ok no ... never mind.


    I was on the "give Locker one more year" bandwagon for a while but if this organization sees someone they think can be the guy, you get him, regardless of Locker.

    Well, not with that attitude, mister! You need to manifest it and it will BE! You don't 'hope'. You make it so! :)

    If the QB you want is there at 11 you take him.

    If not, then take the best player available.

    We need to draft a qb, most vital position on the team and ours misses too many games to be relevant in this league.

    Locker has the talent, just needs the luck of not getting hurt on his side.

    This is a no-brainer. We need a QB.

    The worst thing that happens is- Locker by some miracle, pans out and we have trade bait behind him.
