    Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was signed this year not only to back up starter Jake Locker, but also to help teach Locker the offensive system of new coach Ken Whisenhunt, whom Whitehurst played for last year in San Diego. Whitehurst thinks Locker is going to look great in this offense.

    Whitehurst told the Tennessean that he expects Locker to look better than he has before.

    “Part of my job this year is to help guys in the new offense,” Whitehurst said. “At the backup quarterback spot, you have to be ready to play if called upon and that is my first priority. I have been doing my best to help Jake and he has helped me in this process. We’re helping each other. I think he is primed to have a heck of a season, and if need be, I’ll be ready to play.”

    This is a make-or-break season for Locker, who is heading into the final season of his contract. If he looks as good as Whisenhunt thinks he will, Locker will get a lucrative contract in Tennessee or somewhere else next year. If not, this may be the last time Locker enters a season as an NFL starter.

    I hope he kills it.

    I'm still worried about his foot affecting his play and his durability. I WANT to be wrong.

    Seriously though, as if Charlie Whitehurst is gonna say, 'wow Jake ****kin sucks bro' and I am a big locker fan and really hope he's the guy that gets us back to the playoffs and makes us a contender again. But I really am not comfortable with Whitehurst as the next guy in. As inconsistent as fitz was at times he gave us a hell of a lot better chance to win than Whitehurst. I keep hearing how they brought him in to help locker along with the offense... Hire him as an offensive assistant than and save the money for a legitimate backup. Could have easily used the Michael oher money on that instead..

    Of course he'd never say "Jake f**king sucks", but if that were the case no one is going out of their way to praise a guy. If jake didn't impress, Charlie woulda just stayed quiet.

    not if he's being interviewed and is asked the question. I highly doubt he's gonna just come out of nowhere on his own and say that
