Yesterday we took a look at three things to watch on offense for the Titans matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. We will review those after the jump!1. Jake Locker: Locker didn't answer every question during last nights contest, however, he did relieve some of the concerns that we all had during the Tampa Bay game.
Locker finished the night 11 of 21 for 134 yards 2 TDs and 0 Ints.
Both of his touchdown passes (one to Kendall Wright and the other to Nate Washington) were things of beauty and he proved yet again that he can escape danger or negative plays with his legs. My only knock on Locker is that he really needs to learn to put some touch on a few balls.
Any improvement over last week was a win in my opinion, I'm still grinning about both touchdown passes and the future looks bright for Jake and the team.
2. Fullbacks: I'm going to be honest, I didn't watch the fullback "battle" whatsoever, although I did see Colin Mooney lay the wood a few times.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, I couldn't care less. Who knows what the Titans are really thinking at the position? Not me.
Side Note: Jamie Harper blows and should not be on this team. That is all.
3. WR's and TE's catching balls: This I can live with for a preseason game.
Kendall Wright 4 catches for 44 yards and a TD
Nate Washington 3 catches 39 yards and a TD
Jared Cook 2 catches for 40 yards
Finally, we get some decent production out of our wide receiving and tight end corps. Keep in mind that these aren't Megatron numbers by any means, but they are defiantly a step in the right direction.
This group will have to show consistency and continue to earn Jake Locker's trust if they hope to bring down the New England Patriots.
Note: Mariani is now hurt and my 53 man roster prediction is all out of whack. I am thoroughly disgusted that Mariani was hurt in that manner, he was really making strides at the wide receiver position.
Another Note: The offensive line and run game both sucked last night. This team can NEVER EVER be successful running and passing the ball at the same time.
