Click through the jump to see three things to watch for on offense in tonight's game between the Cardinals and Titans.

1. Jake Locker - Of course, who else!? This will most likely be the last time we get a good look at Locker until Belichick's army of darkness makes they're way into Nashville September 9th.

4 of 11 for 21 yards and a interception isn't going to get it done unless the Titans want to see fans break out the cyanide capsules. Look for Locker to get between 40-50 snaps and play into the 3rd quarter.

2. The fullback competition - I can't believe I'm saying this. The Titans have a full blown fullback competition on their hands, I guess people had to have something to argue about since the team named Locker the starter earlier this week...

Look for Jamie Harper, Colin Mooney, and Quinn Johnson to all get plenty of snaps at fullback, hopefully Locker will be out of the game by the time they decide to squeeze in a ton of plays that require a fullback. I don't care who wins this one, I think they are all scrubs including Harper.

3. The wide receiver corp - I'm including the tight ends in this category. Seriously though, can anyone catch a ball? I know Locker throws like he is trying to knock over milk bottles at the fair, but someone has to do him a favor and catch a ball.

I'm calling out all of the usual suspects, the sad thing is that I can't even start to name just "those few guys" because at times none of them seem to remember how to catch! I don't care if it is Nate Washington, Jared Cook, Kendall Wright, or Damian Williams, someone needs to pick up the slack. My wife's animals that live in the house would suffer a lesser chance of being punted through my front window if I can just get SOME positive vibes from the passing game.

Note: Go ahead and trash me for not listing the offensive line or CJ, I saw what I wanted to see out of them last weekend. However, if he runs for 5 yards on 8 carries again my wife's "children" will suffer an equally terrible fate.
