Don't be surprised to see the Titans make more extensive use of the shotgun formation this season – based on Ken Whisenhunt's recent track record and Jake Locker's success out of the formation in 2013.
When Whisenhunt was offensive coordinator for the Chargers last year, quarterback Philip Rivers threw 499 passes out of the shotgun, the fourth-highest figure in the league behind Peyton Manning (566), Matt Stafford (541) and Matt Ryan (504).
In 2013, Locker connected on 88-of-138 attempts while in the shotgun (63.8 percent), totaling 964 passing yards, seven touchdowns and just two interceptions. His 95.2 passer rating while in the shotgun was the eighth-best figure in the league, just three notches below that of Rivers.
Locker has averaged 15.1 FP in 16 career starts. That extrapolates to 241 points over a 16-game season, or about what Ryan Tannehill scored as the #16 QB in 2013. Health has been his biggest problem, but if he can stay upright, he could grow in Ken Whisenhunt’s offense.
