NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak says he saw some good things from Jake Locker in Saturday night’s 27-17 preseason loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
The question is whether his coaching staff saw enough from Locker to allow him to dethrone Matt Hasselbeck as the starting quarterback.
Locker went 7 for 13 for 80 yards and directed the Titans to a field goal, their only points of the first half, just before halftime.
Hasselbeck completed 5 of 9 for 45 yards in playing the first three possessions. But the veteran quarterback was victimized by a pair of interceptions – one on his first throw and another on his final one.
The first came when the ball went through the hands of a diving Nate Washington, bounced into the air and was eventually returned 23 yards for a touchdown by Seattle’s Brandon Browner.
