Two years since the Titans used a first-round draft pick on quarterback Jake Locker, these are the bottom-line results: Locker has started 11 games, and the Titans have won four of them. That, obviously, is not good enough.
And so Locker says he has to get better. And the key, Locker said in an interview with Andrew Siciliano on NFL Network, is consistency.
“I can improve in a lot of areas, and I think that first and foremost, just find a way to be consistent,” Locker said. “There were a lot of third downs, situations where if we would have converted and kept drives alive it would have changed the game. A lot of times it just came down to one or two plays, and finding ways to maybe not make the flashy play, but just find a way to move the sticks.”
Locker had shoulder surgery after the season, but he said his shoulder is back to normal and he will “definitely” be ready to go for training camp. Making it through a season completely healthy would go a long way toward playing more consistently.
