The more you read, the more it sounds like this quarterback competition is Jake Locker's to lose. That is really good news to those of us, myself included, who thought there was virtually no way that Locker was going to be starting this year. Mike Munchak even said that Locker just needs to keep doing what he has been doing to win the job after Wednesday's practice:
I think Jake Locker just has to do what he has been doing out here. He needs to do what he did last week, but finish the drives as an offense. He finished and got the field goal on one of his drives. His one drive we didn’t get a touchdown, so it would be nice to see him, even though he isn’t going to get as much time as he’d like, out of 20 or 25 plays, get at least two drives where we do something positive with points. We’d like to see us go up by 10 points, move the ball, stay on the field and find a way to make plays. Those are the things you want to see. It’s going to be an away game in front of a different crowd, so I think that’s part of the problem too. It’s playing well on the road.The one thing that we have seen Locker struggle with so far is finishing jobs. That was one of Matt Hasselbeck's strengths last season. The Titans are going to give up some points this year, so they better score touchdowns, not field goals, when they get in the red zone.
Either that, or they could just score on 60 yard bombs from Locker to Kendall Wright every possession.
