How did this guy get his first career win against us?

Well that may have the most embarrassing loss I have endured as a Titans fan. After Donald Brown ran the ball well into Titans territory late in the 3rd quarter, I paid my tab, got up from my seat, and walked out of Buffalo Wild Wings with my head down for fear of making eye contact with anyone. I was calling for Jake Locker to enter the game on the first play when Hasselbeck came up limping after a handoff; I knew it was going to be "that" type of game.

Chris Johnson did not have a good day rushing, or receiving for that matter, tallying 55 yards on 15 carries, which I do not believe to be all of his fault. The play I was most enthused with was one of the first drives when CJ was given the ball and immediately Eugene Amano was blown up causing CJ to fall in his own pathetic mishap. He did have a long run of 35 yards, but overall it was a piss poor day.

Grade: D

As I said before, Hasselbeck appeared to come up limping after the first play, and it was just shocking how long it took for Munchak to finally realize Matt was not going to get it done today. It seemed like Hasselbeck threw a checkdown pass on almost every attempt.

Jake Locker did what he could with 6 minutes left in the game and a 14 point deficit. I believe his first drive was 6 plays long and capping it off with a 7 yard touchdown pass to Nate Washington. Everyone knows how I feel about Hasselbeck's play over the last month and a half, so I will not go into it too much more than that. However, I will say that if the Titans have any hope of making the playoffs, Jake should start next week against the Jaguars.

Grade: D
