David Cobb noticed Eddie George standing with running backs coach Sylvester Croom and responded as a fellow back on the field would.
“I know Eddie was watching during our half-line drill, so that definitely gave me an extra pep in my step, him and coach Croom behind me. That will definitely do it.”
And that pep, which was hampered when Cobb injured a hammy in the off season, is back with all the pops that he became known for back in college.
“I definitely think that is how I’m going to stay around, if I stay around,’’ Cobb said. “I know what I am here for, so the biggest thing for me right now is to continue to get stronger, continue to stay healthy, and just learn pass pro and different things about the offense. But I also have to continue to play fast and be physical.”

Locker Taking the Heat
While it is true that Titans QB Jake Locker had a QB Rating of 7 in the first half of the game against the Cowboys, Locker was far from the only reason Tennessee lost. Locker was under immense pressure as the offensive line failed to protect him and goaded him into throwing two interceptions.
Tight End Delanie Walker had a career game with Locker hitting him 10 times for 142 yards and a touchdown, all second half heroics and not enough to overcome a scoreless first half.
“Jake didn’t play his best in the first half, but we had opportunities to make a couple of catches that get us going and we didn’t do it,” Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “… He did a better job in the second half. Maybe he just settled down.”
The Titans have the opportunity to right the ship on the road next week as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals. Cheap tickets and great seats are still available so be sure to get yours now and help cheer on your Tennessee Titans!
Quarterback Jake Locker is expected to return to the Titans starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the Miami dolphins. Locker, out for about five weeks from a dislocated shoulder/broken bone in the shoulder.
“I think he’s (Locker) ready to go. It’s just a matter of now getting through practice and seeing how it goes for him,” Coach Mike Munchak said. “Physically I think he’s as healthy as he’s going to be, I think, until he starts playing. He had a good day of practice today, and we’ll see how it goes the next couple of days.”
