Regarding accuracy, in my review Locker only threw 3 bad passes and let's not forget the wind was a factor. Darius Reynaud saved one interception. Overall, Locker was pretty accurate and on the money. Credit Chris Palmer and the Titans coaching staff for putting Locker in a position to succeed. Initially, Locker operated out of the shotgun quite a bit. As he got more comfortable and settled into the offense he operated more under center.
Locker's first first touchdown, to Kendall Wright on 3rd and goal, shows exactly what he and Wright bring to the table. Locker operates out of shotgun and Wright uses his athleticism to bring the ball in and make it into the endzone. He actually carries a defender with him. For the record, Wright leads all rookie wide receivers in receptions, and he is the Titans leading wide receiver.

Another thing about the offensive line and that is I thought David Stewart did a good job controlling Cameron Wake who is just amazing. I also won't fault him for his holding penalty as he saved his quarterback from getting slammed. The Titans did give up a sack that was credited to Jimmy Wilson but Wake was in on the action too. What actually happened is that Mike Roos loses Karlos Dansby, leaving Jared Cook to pick him up. That allows Wilson to come around the edge unblocked and sack Locker.
