    Even VY was able to become an effective passer his last year here. Accuracy is one of those things that can improve. I'm not concerned about Locker improving into a solid QB. I'm just curious to see if he's already that guy.

    me too, i'm trusting that the titans coaches/GM were right about his potential. so far he's done everything right off the field (which is important), and his play on field is optimistic. a lot of times when you see a guy come in as a backup and have success, it's often just circumstance (remember billy volek? haha). but sometimes it means they're going to be badass once they become the full-fledged starter. hopefully that's the case with jake.

    IMO it will really all come down to the play calling. We can't come out and run 3 times up the middle on the 1st drive like we did in preseason. We need to give JL a few easy passes on that 1st drive to get his confidence up and his jitters down. I'm not worried about Locker once he is settled, its just the 1st couple of drives that I am worried about him making a rookie mistake.

    I think we need to use the playaction early and often, and let jake get out of the pocket where he can run or pass. I think that will open it up more for CJ and the run game. Once the run game gets going, then I think we can let JL sit in the pocket and throw.

    We also need to use some misdirection in the run game as someone else mentioned. Although some people will refuse to believe it, CJ has more than enough speed to make the D pay if they even hesitate for a second, but sending CJ right to them every play won't work, never has and never will.

    I do think we have the potential to keep up with them on offense, but I don't know if we will be there week 1. By the end of the season I think we will have one of the best offenses, but it may take some time to get everyone on the same page.

    Why are people acting like the Patriots are the 2012 version of the Killer Bee def (Miami Dolphins). NE can't stop the run. Locker will get at least 45 yards rushing. CJ will get over 100. If CJ (hands of stone) can catch passes in the flat, we will really be a threat. If we control the time of possession with a steady blend of run and pass, the Titans will be the most talked about team in the league Sunday evening.

    Giants have their 5th string CB on him, he better go sick on a 5th string CB.

    Pats have solid run defense, it was pass defense that killed us last year.

    I wonder how much playing time Zach Brown will see. I mean, didn't we get him so that he could match up against those big athletic TEs like Gronk and Hernandez?

    I think we'll see plenty of Brown as our awesome defense is going to be seeing a bunch of 3rd & Longs
