With the start of the 2012 NFL regular season a little over two weeks away, a lot of teams around the league are starting to see their rosters shape up as the coaching staffs of all 32 teams begin to make decisions on who will start on both sides of the football.
As arguably the most intriguing position in football, the talk heading into the regular season is always geared around starting quarterbacks. With an influx of rookie quarterbacks over the last few years, there have been some compelling quarterback controversies around the league as of late.
There’s no question that the Tim Tebow show with the New York Jets has dominated the headlines ever since the Denver Broncos traded him to the New York Jets, but it’s been a foregone conclusion that Mark Sanchez is the starter moving forward regardless of all the media attention that comes with Tebow mania.
One of the more intriguing quarterback controversies that began brewing heading into these NFL training camps took place with the Tennessee Titans. With Matt Hasselbeck seemingly turning back the clock last season and Jake Locker playing better than expected with his limited time under center, it was uncertain how things would pan out in training camp and throughout the preseason.
Apparently, it wasn’t much of a tough decision for Titans coach Mike Munchak as the team confirmed that Locker will be the starter in Week 1 against the New England Patriots.
It remains to be seen whether or not Locker can maintain the starting job with a legitimate backup in Hasselbeck ready to come in off the bench. There will be pressure right out of the gate on the second-year quarterback as the Patriots will almost certainly be putting a high number on the scoreboard that Locker will have to match.
