I meant to start this thread after the Draft, and when they waited until the 6th round to draft a QB. On paper right now, the Titans are the laughing stock of the league at QB. It seems like the team is truly going ALL IN on Jake Locker, and for the life of me, I cannot see based on his entire career in the NFL how they could trust the guy like that. The man has NEVER played more than 3 full games in a row without getting hurt. NEVER. And when he gets hurts, its not something he could man up and play through like McNair used to, but its always MAJOR things. And when I look at the plays he gets hurt on, I dont even see how he made it through college. SO, based on Locker's past, how could the team not put into place a truly solid backup that if needed could be the leader of the team for an entire season??? Its not like they didnt have opportunity. First, FA came and went, and the best they did was sign Charlie Whitehurst (pure backup) mainly to replace Ryan Fitz. This guy might be ok in short term, coming in to finish out a game or maybe win a game against a weak opponent. But no one would see "Clipboard Jesus" as a great option at QB if Locker goes out for the entire season week 4, and he is expected to win enough games and play well in the playoffs. Next came the Draft, Johnny Manziel was there in the 1st, they pass. 2nd round, Jimmy Garopopplo was there and they pass only to let him go to the Pats. THE PATS!!. We had two 4th round picks and let Murray and McCarrons go by as well. Then in 6th round we land Mettenburger. And maybe they hit the lottery, but lets be realistic here. In the history of the NFL, only a handful of QBs have become real franchise QBs, and even fewer were great playoff level QBs. Of the currently 32 teams, only Tom Brady is one of those, and for 14 seasons, he has been the ONLY one from the 6th round to go to a Super Bowl. But lets not think about it that way, lets say Metty is legit. He is coming off knee injury and is a rookie in the NFL. He isnt Andrew Luck or Cam Newton. So lets say its week 8 and Locker is out and Charlie blows, we then throw Metty to the wolves and expect him to be good enough to get wins for the team??? Seriously?? Even if Mettenburger is good one day, he shouldnt be expected to be good his rookie year coming off injury. So what then?? We sign a QB mid-season on FA? VY and Tebow would take the job. At that point we would be a laughing stock anyway. Here is my opinion, I believe the 2014 season is seen by the coachings and staff as a re-building year. They are letting Locker do his thing as long as possible, if he plays great and stays healthy, then it could be a solid season. But I bet when Locker goes down, the plan from there is to lose out the rest of the season and land a top 3 Draft pick to then select a high Franchise QB.
