02:26 PM ET 10.22 | Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker will still be the starter for the team when he is healthy enough to play, regardless of backup Matt Hasselbeck's performance. Hasselbeck is 2-1 as a starter in place of Locker, including Sunday's 35-34 victory over the Buffalo Bills. But when interviewed by The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt, head coach Mike Munchak immediately said that Locker will be back when healthy: Munchak said Hasselbeck's record and his performance against the Bills would not factor into the decision. It will be based on Locker's health, he said. "No matter what happened today," Munchak said, "nothing was going to change on Jake's situation."

Yeah. Hasselbeck isn't the future.

If there is a future for this team, it's Locker.

According to Trent Dilfer's stupid "total QBR", Locker is a top 10 QB.

agree, Locker is the future....but with Hasselbeck on a roll, don't you play him until he runs out of steam?? getting to 500would be a big lift for Titans.......

If CJ2K is back, then this isn't a bad choice.

Why you chose to quote Trent Dilfer is beyond me.
