Make-or-break year for Locker?
NASHVILLE, TN (The Spread) - Is it a make-or-break year for Titans' quarterback Jake Locker?
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt believes that this is a crucial year for Locker, who has been underwhelming thus far throughout his career. He has posted an 18:15 touchdown-to-interception ratio over the past two seasons and has only played in 18 games. His completion rate is a paltry 57.9-percent.
"It is a make-or-break year for a lot of guys in the league. Jake is one of the guys," Whisenhunt said via the Nashville Tennessean. "That is the nature of this business. He just happens to play a position that gets a lot of attention."
Whisenhunt replaced Mike Munchak as the Titans new head coach this offseason. As the Chargers offensive coordinator last year, Whisenhunt helped Philip Rivers produce one of his best seasons in four years. Rivers threw for 4,478 yards with 32 touchdowns and 11 interceptions while leading the Chargers on an unexpected playoff run.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Chargers are 33/1 to win the 2015 Super Bowl. The Seahawks remain the favorite to win next year's NFL title at 6/1, while the Broncos are 7/1 and the Patriots and 49ers are 15/2, respectively.
