Quarterback was supposed to be the biggest weakness of the 2011 Titans, but it turned out that it was one of the biggest strengths. There was a point in the season where everyone really wanted Jake Locker to play instead of Matt Hasselbeck, but even when Hasselbeck struggled the quarterback play of this team was better than the few years prior.

Hasselbeck finished the season 319 of 518 for 3,571 yards with 18 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, but his numbers do not even begin to tell the story of his influence on this team. He was a leader from the first day he walked in the door. That was a nice change.

And then there is Locker. We did not get to see that much of him this season, but what we did see was very promising. He is going to get every chance to earn the starting job in next year's training camp. It is exciting to have a promising future at quarterback.
