    From Rotoworld...

    Titans OC Dowell Loggains suggested Justin Hunter may play more at the expense of Kenny Britt going forward.

    Ex-Rotoworld superstar Chris Wesseling has deemed Britt the NFL's worst player through three weeks. "We have a lot of faith in Justin," said Loggains. "Justin is going to be an extremely special player."

    As the rumor goes -- and it was essentially confirmed by Loggains -- Jake Locker personally asked for the Titans to bench Britt for Hunter on the Titans' Week 3 game-winning drive. Hunter answered the bell with a 34-yard touchdown catch.

    Jake knows 6'4" is better than 6'3"

    That takes some balls on Locker's part. I was hoping Kenny would bounce back but he's apparently not making many friends. His comments might not have sat well with a team focused on winning a Super Bowl.


    Got a lot of love for Kenny, but I really don't see him being a Titan next year. Let's hope Hunter can become that special wideout we need and re-sign Nate.

    I think there's more to the story.

    I agree with you though in that Hunter has the tools.

    I was thinking the same thing. A one to two year extension IMO.

    We need receivers making plays for Locker not putting him in a bind. Kenny hurt us a lot early with 2 penalties and a drop in the first quarter.

    I fixed that 4 u. First things first. Superbowl is a pipe dream right now. Winning a playoff game is something we have not done in a decade.

    This sounds a bit fishy so putting the "rumor" tag on it.

    I don't see Loggains putting in a WR by request OR confirming this with the media.

    Hahaha that's great. Real or not, I hope it's true. If so, it shows lockers taking charge of this team.
