Titans | Nate Washington compares Jake Locker to big-name QB
Tue, 25 Jun 2013 10:24:28 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington sees similarities between QB Jake Locker and a young Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. "I was there in Ben's second year, and right away you kind of understood that even in his second year, he was gonna be a good quarterback, a guy that could make plays. That's the same thing with Jake," Washington said. "He's a guy who can make plays. I tell everybody all the time, this is football, and it's a gladiator sport, but it's not a dumb man's sport."

Locker appears more comfortable as the leader of the offense now that he's not competing for a starting job. The team has also retooled their entire offense under offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains in order to simplify the terminology to suit Locker. Locker has quickly adapted to the new system, and he has a much higher comfort level this year.

This'll likely be a make or break season for Locker with the Titans. He has the weapons around him in the offense to be successful, and if he can remain healthy, he could put up some big numbers. He has one of the strongest arms in the league, so he'll need to limit his mistakes to be successful. If everything works out his way, he could be a very strong backup fantasy QB.
