first off: I didn't read the article

He is a pretty good guy, and smart enough to know his playing days are pretty much behind him. Does he want to start, OF COURSE, but he is'nt going to make a national scene based on what he wants (hear that MJD?)

I think he probably is a little bit excited for Jake Locker. Excited to see him throw the ball into triple coverage, and throw the ball over the heads of receivers :)

MLB doesn't have drug testing, it's more like an intelligence test. Every one gets tested when they show up at camp and almost no one gets tested offseason. They have a few possible random tests but the number of randoms is capped. If they really wanted to catch people they would have more testing, you wouldn't know when any of them were, and they would test all players in the offseason instead of a measly 3%.

Conclusion: They want to be able to say they have drug testing to appease the public but they actually don't want to catch all the juicers.

Eh, with the schedule the Titans have, they're probably starting 1-3 or 0-4 no matter who's under center. And Houston's a lock to win the division this year, anyway. Might as well let Locker have his growing pains this season. A .500 year would be successful, anything over that would be a minor miracle.

Whenever Hasselbeck retires, I hope he knows that he has the almost complete adulation of the entire city of Seattle. He was probably the best QB the team ever had.

Dude, he batted like .280 against Nebraska in two games. That's pretty decent numbers.

Wait, that was his completion percentage in those games IN HIS SENIOR SEASON? Oh.
 
2012-08-21 12:14:50 PM

ModernPrimitive01: So what part of Texas are you from?


Lexington, KY originally. I'm a fan, but also a dispassionate football observer. Let's look at the schedule:

1 New England L (0-1)
2 San Diego Tossup, but probably an L (0-2)
3 Detroit L (0-3)
4 at Houston L (0-4)
5 at Minnesota W (1-4)
6 Pittsburgh L (1-5)
7 at Buffalo W (2-5)
8 Indianapolis W (3-5)
9 Chicago Tossup. Went with an L for SD, so let's call this a W (4-5)
10 at Miami W (5-5)
11 Bye
12 at Jacksonville W (6-5)
13 Houston L (6-6)
14 at Indianapolis W (7-6)
15 NY Jets W (8-6)
16 at Green Bay L (8-7)
17 Jacksonville W (9-7)

If- IF- everything falls into absolute perfect place, 10-6 MIGHT be possible, but I don't see it. I don't necessarily think the division games are going to work out like I predicted, because they're division games, and those are screwy. There's a chance the Titans are going to beat Houston once, but that's offset by the likelihood of the Colts or Jaguars stealing a game.

Don't forget, Dan Orlovsky led the Colts to victory over Tennessee last year.

If you disagree with me, that's cool. Where do you think I was wrong? Show your work.

You posted a photo of Chris Johnson, as if the Titans also drafted a time machine with which to rescue 2010 Chris Johnson from the holdout and the disappointment his career's become. You can't unring a bell, and you can't make an old running back fast again. Chris Johnson is different from most people in that most people run faster after stealing more than $50 million.

And your outlook is really, really nice to the Titans. I think they lose in Buffalo (that's before Buffalo usually falls apart) and they definitely lose to Chicago (one of the better teams in the league - this year even if Cutler goes down they have Jason Campbell...and they've upgraded everywhere they were weak). Don't they usually drop a game to Jacksonville, too? Indy's looking pretty good in preseason...if Locker's starting I'm thinking the Titans go 5-11 or so.

Excuse me, I did not post the picture of CopSpeed. I am the guy who will argue vociferously against paying a star RB, because they're the most replaceable player on the team. Let them go into free agency, and let the Redskins give them a huge contract. Draft a new one instead. A decent line- and, especially, decent guards- do as much for the team's overall run game as the back himself, and if you don't believe me, ask yourself if Emmitt Smith would be the all-time yardage leader without Larry Allen.

Yeah, the Bills actually spent money on talent this year, which is weird. They should have a pretty good defense, and a beastly running game with Spiller and Jackson.

The San Diego, Chicago, and Pittsburgh games were tough to call. I can actually see the Titans beating the Steelers, because I think that PIT is looking old and slow right now, and they're in for a down season. I think they're the third-best team in the AFC North, and not just by a little bit.

I don't legitimately think the Titans are going to go on a 5 game winning streak in the middle of the season, because it's the NFL, and "any given Sunday" and all that, but I also can't sit here and say that, say, Miami will beat them. The NFL's an 8-8 league. It's tough to do better than 11-5, and it's tough to do worse than 5-11.
 
2012-08-21 12:42:22 PM
My bad, Gonz. Guess I was going too fast, which Load Screen (Chris Johnson's new video game-based nickname with regards to his speed) doesn't have to worry about.

The_Sponge, you and me both in that regard.

Which is why I changed my opinion of how they'd do from 4-12 to 5-11. =)

That dude did more with less* than any other QB in history. 1983 AFC championship game after whipping on Miami in Miami and Denver in Denver. So he beat Marino and Elway back to back.

* Less does not include Steve Largent or Curt Warner.

And also, Warren Moon.

Hasselbeck was one among many mediocre Sadhawk QBs. He might be top three, but he certainly isn't the best that's ever played for this team.

Locker is going to be a superstar QB in four years. He will exceed all expectations this year. He's tall, fast, and has a strong arm and a quick release. He's also smart.

His completion percentage his Junior year would have put him just outside the top 50 all time in the NFL. His senior year would have just missed the top 100 NFL all time.

This just in: It's easier to complete passes in college football than it is in the NFL. See Tim Tebow for example.

Locker is a homeless man's Tebow, and I watched a LOT of Locker in college. In case you didn't notice, Washington upgraded with Keith Price at quarterback replacing Locker.

No 1st year starting QB is going to be a standout player. Locker has all the tools, though, and Loggains (Titans QB coach) managed to get great results out of both Hasselbeck and Kerry Collins. Munchack is a "teaching coach" as well.

From a development standpoint, Locker couldn't be in a better position.
