A little juvenile, remind you of your little league experiment?

What will the Titans' sub package on defense look like in 2013? This is an interesting and complicated question for a number of reasons. The sheer number of different pieces on the defensive line gives the Titans options. Akeem Ayers may rush more. Who's going to play the slot? How much Big Nickel with three safeties will the Titans play? Just how much dime, either 4-1-6...
This is year 3 of the Jake Locker experiment in Tennessee and there has never been a more important year for a quarterback’s development than the 3rd year where you either separate yourself or become destined for backup status in the league.

Jake Locker's Adjusted Sack Rate as a rookie was 8.3%. Jake Locker's Adjusted Sack Rate in his second season was 8.2%. The league-averaged Adjusted Sack Rate in 2012 was 6.5%. Therefore, Jake Locker is one of those quarterbacks who tends to get sacked a lot, so we should expect Jake Locker's Adjusted Sack Rate in 2013 to be about 8.3%, right?
