    Coach Mike Munchak said Matt Hasselbeck will be the starting quarterback when the Titans open the preseason against the Seahawks on Saturday (9 p.m., WKRN-2).

    Hasselbeck will play 10-15 plays and then Jake Locker will play until halftime. Rusty Smith and Nick Stephens should see action in the second half.

    Hasselbeck will be playing his first game in Seattle since leading the Seahawks to a victory over the Saints in the 2010 playoffs. He played 11 seasons for the Seahawks.

    It looks like the Titans are leaving the first-team OL in for Locker as well.

    I don't see Hasselbeck going more than the first series if the Titans do well.

    I'm alright with that. Hass gets his 'start' and two series... than Locker gets the rest of the half (w/ the OL starters). More time for JL to prove himself :)

    Makes sense that he would start against the Seahawks. I'm sure he'll get a huge ovation.

    Exactly what I was about to say. JL could use the extra work. Not saying he's been playing bad, but if he's our future get him as much work as possible.
