Found September 07, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
What can we expect of these 2012 Titans with Jake Locker at the helm? Let’s start with the offense, Chris Palmer and his playbook bring the bigger plays to life here in Tennessee. Big plays down the field that Titans’ fans have been begging for. Only one problem, after 10 years of Fisher ball we have come to be proud of our run game. A run game of which has simply been torture to watch. With a whole off season this year and a full second year of this offense, I expect we can see an offense that is not just exciting on the passing downs.
