And that’s all we can hope for, right?
When the Tennessee Titans became wary of picking up quarterback Jake Locker’s option late last season, some were wondering if he was really meant to be the “Quarterback of the future.” However, it appears that the position is still in Locker’s hands heading into spring and beyond.
Locker did not finish the 2013-14 season due to foot injury that required extensive surgery. Although he’s still on the road to recovery, Locker remains optimistic about remaining the Titans’ starting quarterback and leading them to a winning season. Last year, the team ended with a record of 7-9.
A lot has changed since then. The organization has “cleaned house” in many ways, and head coach Mike Munchak was let go, leaving room for Ken Whisenhunt to step in. Whisenhunt seems to have an ample amount of faith in Locker and the team as a whole. We’ll see if this translates into positive numbers come kick-off.
