Rumor Did Locker really ask for Britt to be benched???

    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.
