Game time: Sunday at 1 p.m. ET TV: CBS No matter what happens in Sunday's season finale at LP Field, the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars will finish with the worst records in the AFC South. There are still plenty of questions about what will happen this offseason for these struggling franchises. In their second season under Mike Munchak, the Titans (5-10) have missed the playoffs for a fourth consecutive year. They have major questions on both sides of the ball as second-year quarterback Jake Locker has more interceptions (11) than touchdown passes (10) and the team is giving up a league-worst 30.1 points per game after last Sunday's 55-7 loss at Green Bay. Locker was picked off twice and sacked a season-high seven times and Tennessee allowed its most points since losing 59-0 to New England on Oct. 18, 2009.

According to the Nashville Tennessean, Titans quarterback Jake Locker will undergo left shoulder surgery "in the near future."Fantasy Spin:Locker was given the starting job at the beginning of the season but was never able to find his groove in Tennessee's offense. Maybe the shoulder injury had something to do with that but we still don't have high hopes for him going into 2013.

On Jake Locker

So it has come to this. Late last season, I wrote a post on a Titans offense that was fundamentally nonfunctional. Three hundred seventy-six days later, the offense is once again fundamentally nonfunctional, for similar but not exactly the same reasons. For this post, though, I'll concentrate on one of the differences. In that post a year ago, I declared Matt Hasselbeck was neither...
