I hate to say it, but I think this game is going to get ugly.It will get ugly fast.

Tennessee showed last week what I hoped wouldn’t happen, but feared. This offense without Jake Locker is just not the same. Not the same dynamic, not the same firing power, not the same versatility, and not the same flare.

Just when we saw Locker break out and make some plays, Ryan Fitzpatrick takes over after his injury. While he did put up points, he showed his interception-prone passing and cost us late in the game when we were trying to drive. While the offense has some instances of good play, across the board, it was just painful to watch.

I’m not saying Fitzpatrick can’t lead us to a win, nor do I think this offense is completely inept. However, you can no longer deny exactly what Locker was for this offense and exactly how vital he was to its versatility.

The defense can’t keep us in the game forever and no one expects them to. If our offense can’t support them, sustain long drives and put up points, it’s going to be a long game. A game where they put up points and the Titans just don’t.
