Joshua: This was supposed to be a homecoming game for Titans quarterback Jake Locker, who was a prominent figure during his playing days at the University of Washington. A sprained hip will keep Locker out of this game. How much intrigue does that take out of this out-of-conference matchup?

Mitch: I think that the fact that Jake Locker isn’t playing takes a little bit of intrigue out of the game, which is a shame because he is embraced by much of the Seattle fan base because of his days at Washington like you mentioned. However, any game at the Clink is an intriguing one for the 12th Man, no matter who the Hawks are playing. The Titans are a good team and it will be a good game regardless of Locker’s presence, but I’m sure many fans wanted to see him play again, even if it is for another team.
