Justin Hunter looks like more than “just another guy” for the Titans

The Titans took Justin Hunter’s name off his practice jersey and replaced it with JAG for “Just Another Guy” this week as punishment for screwing up his route running. Hunter looked like more than just another guy on Friday night.

Hunter had a sensational preseason game against the Saints, catching four passes for 111 yards, including a four-yard touchdown from Jake Locker in the first quarter and a 64-yard touchdown from Zach Mettenberger in the second quarter.

The offense was clicking, and we were moving the ball real well in the first half,” Hunter said. “Jake was on point and was making all the throws. I thought we came out of the locker room and started fast.”

The Titans’ offense wasn’t clicking as much when the ball wasn’t going to Hunter: Five Tennessee drives ended in turnovers, and two drives ended in punts. But Hunter looked like the best player on the field for the Titans’ starting offense.

As a rookie last season, Hunter played sparingly and only caught 18 passes, but he showed off his big-play ability, scoring four touchdowns and averaging 19.7 yards a catch. This season the Titans expect Hunter to be a major part of their offense, and to be more than just another guy.

    Loved this kid as a Vol. Better college career than Cordarrelle Patterson until he got hurt. Still had a better year after he came back. I still think it was a great move to trade up & grab him.

    I’m sure he’ll get arrested at some point soon. Just wait for it.

    Dear Ravenswhat,

    Perhaps you shouldn’t come out in “public” this early in the morning. Eat some breakfast, get some blood flowing to your brain, and take the sunglasses off while you’re inside.

    If you did just the most basic Google search on the Titans’ future star, you’d learn things like Justin Hunter is “a charismatic and confident individual who brightens up the room with a huge smile. Intense on the field and seemingly soft-spoken off of it, he is the type of person every organization wants.”

    After all, this isn’t your team’s player we’re talking about.

    Big time potential. How about Mettenberger last night? He looked good. He should definitely be ahead of Whitehurst. That year under Cam Cameron got Zach ready for the pros.

    Getting worried about my Titans…….they aren’t even playing against starters. Long season ahead.

    Keeping rookies humble is a good thing. J.A.G is a harmless prank. If it wakes up the kid to do his homework, then it is good. As far as the young man goes, I hope tennesseeoilers is correct and he is a good young man. I am sick of punks. More humble quiet receivers are welcome in my book. (Not a Titans fan, but I am a football fan)

    I boosted his ratings on Madden 25, and now it’s coming to life! No thanks needed Titans fans!

    Is there really a Ravens fan on here talking about criminals on other teams?

    Really?

    Justin Hunter? The clown that had 1 catch for eight yards against the LOB?

  11. 1nationraidernation says: Aug 16, 2014 12:10 PM

    all good, but why were the raiders tagged to this?

    locker is a bust

    Gotta admit, it’s a great motivational ploy on the part of the Titans. If this kid plays to his potential, he can be very very good. Lets go Bills!

    That punishment sounds like something you would do to very small children.

    That guy isn’t a ravens fan. He’s a steelers fan trying to make us look bad. Whatever. Hunter looks like a potential star at wide out, good luck to him.

    Not sure why the Raider are tied into this string. Possibly, because they are so NFL irrelevant, there is nothing else to dicuss.
