What NFL analysts are saying about Titans
Placeholder Image

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 (, 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/, 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 (, 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.
