What I think the Titans are thinking...

What I think they’re thinking in the headquarters of the Tennessee Titans this afternoon…

A couple weeks ago, some fans were calling for Ryan Fitzpatrick to be the starter. Now, after Jake Locker puts up a good stretch and goes down with hip and knee injuries, the same people are horrified at the prospect of turning to the backup. We want Locker in the lineup, of course. But we’ve got one of the best backup situations in the league. If we lose to Kansas City on Sunday, it’s not going to be on Fitzpatrick. Our defense should be able to contain the Chiefs, who haven’t been real explosive on offense. And the offensive line’s been getting better and should be able to get our backs some room and allow Fitzpatrick to operate against a group that’s rushed the passer very well so far.
