It is time to give up on the Titans rushing attack for the season. They give us a false sense that they are going to be competent from time to time, but they stink. Chris Johnson stinks. The offensive line stinks at run blocking. That is just the way it is.

On Sunday Chris Johnson manage a robust 1.1 yards per carry with 13 yards on 12 carries. Maybe Jake Locker should play tailback...

Grade: F-

The passing offense wasn't much better. It is time to say goodbye to Lavelle Hawkins. He has no idea what he is doing out there.

Matt Hasselbeck had his worst day of the season. He ended 13 of 25 for 124 yards and an interception. Jake Locker replaced him after he injured his elbow and played pretty well. You saw the accuracy problems at times, but he can get outside the pocket to make plays and has plenty of arm strength. I am excited about what he will bring to the table next season.

Grade: C-
