RTC: Jake Locker solid in small sample

Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…

Jake Locker played well in preseason game No. 2, with 8-of-11 passing for 75 yards, a touchdown and a passer rating of 121.5 in two possessions, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

To which I say: An encouraging showing, particularly with the first drive for a touchdown after the defense gave up a score to open the game.

The Saints had more, but the Titans did their part to bog down the game with penalties, says Wyatt.

Rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger played extra and put up big numbers back in Louisiana, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.

Taylor Lewan played a good game at both tackles spots, but drew two penalties, says Glennon.

Travis Coons had a productive night and is putting serious pressure on Maikon Bonani, says Wyatt.

Shonn Greene didn’t seem worried about his knee injury, says Wyatt.
