NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
TENNESSEE TITANS (29)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 29) - Better schedule coming and Matt Hasselbeck knows what he's doing.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 26) - Matt Hasselbeck is very capable if Jake Locker misses time.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 29) - Comment currently unavailable
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 28) - Starting to have my concerns about whether or not Locker can stay healthy.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 24) - More shoulder problems for Jake Locker, and more defense problems for the Titans, who are mauled by new AFC South power Houston.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 31) - Three turnovers by Tennessee quarterbacks have been returned for touchdowns. It's tough to win when you're asking your offense to tackle.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 26) - Finally, Chris Johnson gets out of neutral. Unfortunately, the Titans have not.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 31) - On pace to allow 604 points, which would shatter the NFL's all-time record.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 27) - The Titans could be more effective with Hasselbeck for the short term. CJ picked it up a bit with the running game, but this team continues to struggle.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 26) - The Titans looked poor in a drubbing against the Texans. The Texans however, are making everyone look poor this season.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 31) - Chris Johnson finally showed signs of life in a 141-yard rushing performance against Houston. Unfortunately for the Titans, Tennessee's defense was DOA in last Sunday's 38-14 loss.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 28) - At least Chris Johnson got rolling Sunday. But the Titans have bigger issues.
