The Tennessee Titans have not decided on a starting quarterback for their regular-season opener, but on Thursday, they named veteran Matt Hasselbeck the starter for Saturday's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks, TitanInsider.com reported. Coach Mike Munchak plans to have Hasselbeck run between 11 and 15 players, then replace him with second-year quarterback Jake Locker for the rest of the first half. Hasselbeck started all 16 games for the Titans last season, but he is competing with Locker for the starting job this year. Hasselbeck played for the Seahawks before signing with the Titans last summer. Munchak wants to pick his regular-season starter by the Titans' third preseason game, Aug. 23 against the Arizona Cardinals.
