    With Jake Locker back in the captain's chair, the Titans will try to right the ship at the Port of Miami this Sunday. Recent history has not been kind as the Titans have lost three straight and six of seven in. It's doubtful any of the recent match-ups between the two teams have been as important as this one to the Titans coming off of one of the franchise's worst home lost last Sunday.

    A key is for Locker to shake the rust early as the Dolphins D has been stingy against the run and will play to limit CJ. Locker may have to use his legs to extend drives so fans might be holding their breath early in this game.

    The Dolphins will go with a high-tempo, no huddle offense which means the Titans D, who likes to rotate a lot on the DL, may have to stay on the field for more reps. Getting pressure on Tannehill is a must as the rookie is coming off a 290 yard passing game Sunday in Indy and has been putting up solid numbers at home. Reggie Bush is on track to surpass his stats last season with 534 yards and a 4.4 ypc average after eight games.

    The Titans can't give the Fins any easy TDs like they did the Bears and expect to stay in this one. I'm hoping starting Locker adds a spark which gets the Titans back on track and leaves both the team and fans feeling optimistic entering the bye week.

    What do you think are keys to this game?

    The offense needs to get some first downs to keep the D off the field. The D looked good early last week, but the O and ST just gave the game away.

    It'll be interesting to see how the team reacts. I hope we see a lot more blitzes, some deep ball, and SHOW ME THE LOCKER!

    We're terrible when things don't go our way early, hopefully the players can keep their spirits up if we get down any points.

    I just hope they play with some emotion and maybe a little anger...and not let some early turnover or something deflate them to the point of playing flat.

    We will see if the coaches were able to focus less on their Monster account and more on how to get after this Dolphins team.

    Can the defense step up? - Does it help Gray has been kicked to the booth?

    Im just ready to see locker get some more snaps. Get back into the groove and start developing from live reps.
