NEW YORK -- 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.
