    The starters will play through halftime of Thursday’s game against the Cardinals at LP Field, coach Mike Munchak said Sunday. It will be their most extensive preseason action so far. He opted to wait another day, however, to announce which quarterback will be out there first – Matt Hasselbeck or Jake Locker.

    Munchak said the coaching staff would meet Sunday night to discuss their plan for the quarterbacks. He was not ready to say when he would announce the regular season starter. “At some point you just want to move forward and we are reaching that point at that position and others,” Munchak said.

    Hasselbeck started the preseason opener at Seattle, Locker the second game at Tampa Bay. Neither played especially well, keeping the quarterback debate alive longer than initially expected. The Titans open the season on Sept. 9 against the Patriots. The final preseason game is Aug. 30 against the Saints at LP Field.

    Hasselbeck was better in Sunday’s practice, the last training camp session open to fans. He completed 23 of 28 passes and threw an interception. Locker went 14-of-24. He threw three straight touchdown passes to wide receiver Michael Preston in one goal-line period, but he was off target on a number of throws during scenarios including third down, last play of game, and no huddle.

    “I saw some good throws, some pressures,” Munchak said. “It was a mixed bag for everybody.”

    It seems like neither of these guys wants to Qb this team. Might as well give Rusty a chance .

    Im worried. Hass will throw many INTs and Locker will miss many WRs with wild throws. Might as well start locker. Its not a playoff year anyways.

    The "right thing" is to start Hasselbeck if you ask me. Locker is not ready.

    Either way I am glad it is not my decision. Since neither are sticking out I would just go with Locker. Let him get his bumps early and see if he catches on quick.

    I wouldn't put Locker in for the first 4 games, that's asking for a disaster.

    Potentially, I mean the Pats aren't the same on D and I think he can handle the Bolts. After that I am sure his confidence comes up.

    If jake finishes strong, I can see him winning the job. But if he looks anything like he did against the Bucs the next two weeks, start MH and just give Jake a bit more time to get the kinks worked out.
