MIKE KEITH: I’ll give you five…
1. Left guard
2. Defensive tackle Antonio “Mookie” Johnson: bigger than when he was here before (in a good way), strong and crafty. A great pairing with
5. Wide receiver
Henry in Sasebo, Japan: “My question is about our quarterback
MIKE KEITH: I will be shocked if Jake Locker doesn't play much more effectively. I believe that he has improved. The players around him are better. But I think that Dowell Loggains’ system will make the biggest difference. They are taking advantage of what Jake does best.
He can move around in the pocket. He can run. He is more comfortable.
The quarterback stat in this particular offense that matters is touchdowns to turnovers. Last year, Locker accounted for 11 touchdowns (10 passing and 1 rushing) and had 15 turnovers (11 interceptions and 4 lost fumbles). Not good. It must improve. I believe this system gives him a real opportunity to improve on that.
This season, that ratio goal should be 2 touchdowns to 1 turnover. A lot to ask, but a worthy goal.
Score inside the 20. Take care of the football.
If Jake Locker can do those things better, the Titans will win games. And the questions about him will end.
