Football and Futbol:
Turnovers are probably the most hated aspect of offensive play, for the fans, for coaches, and for the players themselves. Nothing is worse than throwing an interception or losing a fumble, especially when your team is trying to mount a comeback. Because of the repercussions of turnovers, sometimes coaches make irrational decisions, such as bringing back quarterbacks that aren’t really ready to play, in order to prevent such things. That was the position of Titans coach Mike Munchak sunday, after two horrendous games by Ryan Fitzpatrick in which he turned the ball over four times, and killed a potential game winning drive in Seattle with two minutes left in the fourth quarter. The fans knew Fitz just couldn’t get the job done, and after such a great start to the season, the Titans still had a lot to play for Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers came to town.
Unfortunately, Jake Locker just wasn’t fully himself, and struggled passing all day. The Titans offense just could not connect until it was too late for them to have a legitimate chance of coming back. Chris Johnson easily had one of the best plays of the season, however, with a 66 yard touchdown catch. The Titans were down 24-0 at the start of the fourth quarter, and while they scored 17 in the final 15, it just wasn’t enough.
Hopefully, after all the struggles that Locker had yesterday, he’ll be at full strength next week to take on former coach Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams next Sunday, and end the three game skid. The next three games are winnable, and while Indianapolis will be tough, if Locker plays well, and Bernard Pollard and the rest of this Titans defense step up to the task, they have a great opportunity to make the playoffs.
