Titans QB Jake Locker didn't get the benefit of playing much last year, but two things are important to note. First, the Titans are thrilled with how Matt Hasselbeck has mentored the young quarterback. And second, Locker will have every opportunity to be the starter this year. Mike Munchak told me a couple days ago it's wide open, and it's "much easier to name a quarterback" based on the relationship the two have, but the sense I get is a tie would go to Locker.
"These two guys are competitive and they understand no one's going to be given the job," Munchak said. "We're gonna let it play out, that's what you do in these situations. As a staff, you hope it becomes obvious fairly early on, and hope it doesn't take until the last week of camp, because someone has to play. The negative is the longer it goes, the harder it is to build. But I think these guys can handle it."
