Tennessee Titans Daily Links: When A Slump Becomes The New Normal Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Ugh. I get that there's an argument to be made that Hass is a huge part of the reason we're still in contention for a wildcard spot, and he's got the most experience in tight spots in the NFL. I get that. But anyone who's been watching this team all season has season has seen Hasselbeck's play steadily decline, it bottomed out last week with 2 INTs and a passer rating of 60.7. Over the past 6 games he's only had one week where he put up a passer rating over 80, and that was against the Saints when he totaled 7 attempts. Over that same stretch he's got 6 INTs to 2 TDs. If he does the same for the next two weeks, that's half the damned season with subpar QB play. Meanwhile Locker has provided a consistent spark when he comes in, and hasn't been turning the ball over. You just can't logically argue that Hass gives us a better chance to win right now, yet that's what Munch is somehow arguing. I don't know if we win the next two with Locker, but I do know that if win either of the next two with Locker on the bench it'll be in spite of Hasselbeck's play. It'll probably result in us going 8-8... again.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Sure as hell doesn't help Hasselbeck that CJ has a sprained ankle.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If CJ can't go you can probably look forward to an offense that heavily features two FBs on the field at the same time.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Tommie Campbell has been one of the great stories of this season, but he's got to control himself better than he did last week.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jared Cook took a lot of abuse from us MCMers on Sunday, and a lot of it was deserved. That being said, I do appreciate that Cook showed some mental toughness to put those earlier mistakes behind him and make plays against that prevent defense down the stretch.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Speaking of Cook, FO rated him as the 5th best TE in the league in terms of yards after catch.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 On FO also, as bad as Hasselbeck was against the Colts, at least he graded out better than Blaine 'Scaredy Cat' Gabbert.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFF points out Michael Roos' rare bad day. I have to say I can't remember the last time he struggled with Dwight Freeney, who he usually keeps at bay.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 William Hayes should be back to practice today after missing last week's game against the Colts.
