Titans QB sees offense still work in progress

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Matt Hasselbeck now can look around the huddle and see both three-time Pro Bowl running back Chris Johnson and top receiver Kenny Britt. It's a combination that the new Titans quarterback says makes his job easier.

With Jacksonville's move to dump David Garrard on Tuesday and promote Luke McCown to starter, the Titans now have an edge in experience at quarterback going into Sunday's opener.

And though Hasselbeck has only practiced with the team since Aug. 4, he has impressed his new teammates enough that they voted him their offensive captain.

Left tackle Michael Roos says the team is confident Hasselbeck will run the offense well. Johnson says Hasselbeck is a guy who can lead them to the playoffs.

    The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team got the mainland bracket of the Cayman Islands Classic off to a good start with a 67-50 win over Alabama State. And when we say good start, we focus on the stifling defensive effort of the first half.
