PapaTitan keeps it real.
I agree with parts of it.
a) I think it was purely a money thing. A 37 yr old Hass at $3-4 million or a 30 yr old Fitz for $2? I think it's a no brainer. Hass is the better QB over his career, but not right now.
b) They do have to have a good back up. I agree with him there. They need someone that can come in and do well if Locker flops......it's very possible. Clearly they want Jake to succeed, but they have to have a back-up plan.
c) I don't feel that they changed Hass for Fitz for anything more than weighing money and ability at the stage of their careers. Anything else he mentioned about why they changed I don't agree with.
I think the Titans wanted to create some real competition and put some pressure on Jake to step up leadership and performance wise.Also if they really are going to run some read option,do some rolling out of the pocket and throwing on the run,you have to think Fitz would fit that style more than Hass.Dowell wouldn't have to change play calling or game planning as much if Locker gets hurt.They also probably think that they can help Fitz become a better more efficient QB in this offense.
