AP Pro32 comments about Titans

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 04, 2012
Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): --- TENNESSEE TITANS (21) Chris Berman (ESPN, 19) - Hope that Locker watching Hasselbeck will work like Rodgers watching Favre. Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 20) - Last year they went 9-7, but were largely overlooked outside Nashville. I see a similar scenario in 2012. Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 23) - Jake Locker era begins. Physically gifted, accuracy is only concern. Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 20) - Downgraded because of QB change. Like Locker but there will be growing pains. Bob Glauber (Newsday, 26) - Mike Munchak did terrific job keeping Titans competitive, but learning curve for first-year starter Jake Locker will be steep. Settle in. This may take a while. Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 22) - Jake Locker takes over at quarterback but will be without best receiver for opener as Kenny Britt sits out one-game NFL suspension. Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 19) - Jake Locker plus revitalized Chris Johnson could make these guys dangerous. Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 14) - Chris Johnson back to old tricks in backfield and Tennessee's defense is better than advertised. Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 15) - Titans are a quiet team that decided to start a second year QB Jake Locker instead of veteran Matthew Hasselbeck. There will be a learning curve and it may show up as an extra loss in the first half of the season. I do expect a solid season from Chris Johnson. John Lynch (Fox Sports, 18) - Wicked tough early schedule makes it difficult. Preseason really showed Mike Munchak is building tough, disciplined, talented and deep roster. Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 21) - Looks like Jake Locker will be growing into starting position after not doing much to differentiate himself from incumbent Matt Hasselbeck during preseason quarterback competition. Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 19) - Jake Locker has looked good so far - let's see if he can keep it up when games mean something. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
