Zach Mettenberger wants to be the Titans starting QB

Frederick Breedon

What else would you have him say?

What passes for news this time of year is funny. Zach Mettenberger was on SiriusXM Radio last week and said exactly what you would want someone competing for a job to say:

If I was drafted and [SiriusXM NFL Radio host Mark Brunell] is the vet, I'm coming for his job from Day 1," Mettenberger said. "That's my attitude. If I don't win the job, I'm pushing, in this scenario, pushing Mark to be the best guy for the job. I'm going to make Jake work that much harder, make Charlie [Whitehurst] work that much harder, cause I'm coming everyday. And I'm bringing my best effort and my hardest work to the facility everyday to show that I shot be the guy playing.

(quote courtesy Jim Wyatt's article)

My thoughts: What else would you have him say? You wouldn't want a guy on the team to say that he is content riding the bench and holding a clipboard. Your hopes wouldn't be very high for that guy, would they?

I hope that Mettenberger does push Jake Locker for the starting job. I hope the competition is too close to call in camp because they are both playing really well.

That would be a good problem for the Titans to have, and it would also allow them to get Charlie Whitehurst off this roster. Why did they sign him again?
