1. Quarterback. Matt Hasselbeck got most of the playing time with the first stringers, but Locker came in after Hasselbeck was shaken up. I'm not sure if Hasselbeck would've returned if this were a game that actually counted, but suspect he might have. He played the sort of smart veteran game I've come to expect. Locker, after some optimism last week, played more like a rookie who spent a lot of time as a spotty college quarterback. If and when he plays, the Titans are going to need some constraint plays or teams will eat the bootleg up.
2. Jamie Harper and Stafon Johnson. Well, ok, I completely missed Herb Donaldson's prominent role in this game. I thought Harper overall had a much better game than he had against the Vikings in terms of running forward. I only started really cursing him out once, on a goalline carry in the second quarter when I thought he gave up a 5-yard TD for no gain. Stafon Johnson didn't get the work until the second half, really. I didn't see anything special from him, and he gave up some pressure on blitz pickup, which doesn't help his chances.
