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.”

He had a good day of practice today, and we’ll see how it goes the next couple of days.”
