    Put any QB on the Titans right now in this situation and they'll struggle. Give Locker an OL, another weapon, and a competent coaching staff and then let's see. Right now we're throwing out a guy we knew would take some time with no help whatsoever.

    McCourty gets burned every game. He's terrible.

    Saying McCourty is the Tennessee Titans best DB is like saying you were the quickest blind kid to the piece of cake that eventually ends up on the floor...and a happy dog.

    Well we can't do those things so obviously there's no point in talking about it.

    I've seen britt Washington, CJ make plays in the past so I know they can.

    Has locker proved anything to you? Can he hit a receiver accurately on 5 yard slant without sailing it over his head? I'm not sure I can answer those because he has NO touch. None. He's bottom 3 qbs.

    He can't get his passes off when he's always on his back. I get what you're saying, the accuracy issues are there and always will be there but they can be improved upon.

    I like the Jake Locker pick. I have supported him fully and thought he could turn into a Aaron Rodgers type QB. But this season has really made me question a lot. I haven't totally given up on him because yes we have had our fair share of injuries, but even when the line was healthy Locker was struggling. I think we need to reload our line in the offseason. Draft Warmack and sign Long or Levitre. Then see what Locker can do, but I am very very uncertain about his future as QB and that's not something I would have said at the beginning of the season.

    Me personally though I felt that Hasselbeck should have been our starter this year from day one.

    I thought so too, but not sure what that would accomplish.. We'd still be bad with MH in. And we need to find out ASAP if locker is legit or a bust. He's looking more like a bust. But why wait til 2013 to find that put, ya know? We see a lot of rookies succeeding right out of the gate. IMO, if you drafted a qb that needs 2 years development to play... You picked the wrong guy. Especially with a top 10 pick. That's millions of dollars you're wasting, and prime nfl years wasted. We lost much of mcnairs career because he rotted on the bench his first few years. Who knows, he may have been in hof conversation had he had 2 more years playing in his 20s.

    Andy dalton was the right pick for us... But thank god we didn't pick ponder.

    Its official, Lock is a bust in my book....

    Make shift line or not, since his return from injury his passing has been consistently erratic. He has HORRIBLE accuracy and when the ball goes over 10 yards, I feel like he's just throwing it up there (without really a 'spot' he's aiming for). When its less then 10 yards, its above, below, behind, too far in-front, and whatever else positions exist (that aren't on target).

    I'm not sure how you guys are hating on the D, I too agree with Crow and Alex in that our offense (again mainly Jake) was disgusting and time and time again kept giving GB great field position.

    The D also did really well stopping them early on (more times than I thought they, or any decent D could against GB at home - especially with the way GB has been playing as of late).

    I don't follow college ball, but please, PLEASE, tell me there are some good QBs to be had this year. I can't watch Jake another year....

    Its not like he's trying to put it somewhere and that 'somewhere' is wrong due to inability to read a complicated NFL D. No its like, EVEN ON THE SHORTEST PASSES, WHERE HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE THAT F'IN 'SOMEWHERE' IS, HE CAN'T - FOR HIS LIFE - F'IN HIT IT!

    We get the O-Line is in shambles...

    yet when you have time, a wide open WR and you still... constantly miss them terribly.. there's no excuse for that.

    Yep, that's what i've been saying. But even with a terrible OL and zero run game (CJ was playing hurt). You would think a QB can do better than: 13/30, 140 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT, 41 QB Rating (and the TD was in garbage time). He had Thompson open for a TD, the majority of QBs make that throw. He overthrew/underthrew/threw behind multiple targets, that many QBs could of made a fair share of those throws. Locker is still young, blah blah blah, has only played 11 games, blah blah blah.. but theres throws that are just horrible. Russell Wilson, Tannehill, and Dalton likely would of made those throws 11 games into their career.

    I haven't given up on Locker, yet. But he's raised some serious concerns. I was able to look past his accuracy issues because he showed a spark and made plays, he showed progression. After these last few games, he's shown me nothing.
