Titans' Jake Locker trying to avoid same mistakes during year of success for rookie QBs

Andrew Luck and RG3 are winning. Russell Wilson, too — and they're all NFL rookies.

Jake Locker is in his second season, and his 2-5 record as a starter comes nowhere near the success some of this season's young quarterbacks are enjoying.

The Tennessee Titans are not worried.

Coach Mike Munchak says his quarterback takes blame for his mistakes and works hard not to make the same one twice. Munchak also says the Titans (4-8) need to help Locker out when games are on the line.

Locker, who sat behind Matt Hasselbeck in 2011 as a rookie and missed five games this season due to injury, finally makes the first of what the Titans hope are many starts against Luck and the Colts (8-4) on Sunday.
