Ever since he was named the starting quarterback in Week 8, there has been constant analysis and speculation about whether or not Zach Mettenberger could be the Tennessee Titans’ quarterback of the future and what impact that decision would have on the roster going forward.

Lost amid all that conversation was one important distinction. Coach Ken Whisenhunt and his staff might believe that the sixth-round draft pick out of LSU is, in fact, the quarterback of the future. That does not mean he has to be the quarterback of 2015.

It’s not that the Nashville Predators score a lot more than they have in recent years.

It is that they can score when they have to.

The turning point of Thursday’s game at Jacksonville was the most the Tennessee Titans finally allowed some points.

The Titans held the Jaguars scoreless until there 31 seconds to play in the first half. That’s when Jacksonville capped an 11-play drive with a short touchdown pass. The Jaguars got the ball to start the second half and promptly drove 72 yards in 11 plays to another touchdown that put them ahead to stay.

Two touchdowns allowed in just over five minutes of game time was enough to doom the Titans to their ninth straight defeat, 21-13 in a primetime matchup between two of the NFL’s worst teams.

The Tennessee Titans are in a state of denial, according to their current starting quarterback.

“You are always what your record is, but we don’t believe we’re a 2-13 team,” Charlie Whitehurst said following Thursday’s 21-13 loss at Jacksonville.

There actually were times in this game when the Titans did not look anything like a team that now has lost nine in a row and remains in contention for the first overall pick in the 2015 draft.

Add another name to the Tennessee Titans’ injured reserve list.

Running back Dexter McCluster (knee) was added Thursday afternoon, hours before kickoff of that evening’s game at Jacksonville (7:25 p.m., NFL Network). Wide receiver Rico Richardson was signed to the active roster off the practice squad to take his place.

Barring something unusual, the Tennessee Titans will accomplish something unprecedented this season.

There never has been a 16-game season in franchise history in which at least one quarterback did not attempt more than 200 passes.

Until now. Unless, of course, Charlie Whitehurst throws the ball 78 times in the final two games, the first of which is Thursday at Jacksonville (7:25 p.m., NFL Network).

We here at Post Sports have been known to place a wager or two and we respect the many ways you can win (or lose) money on your favorite team. The proposition is simple. We started the season with a hypothetical $100 and pick the Titans against the moneyline, against the spread and the over/under on total points. We'll keep track of how we're doing by the size of our bank account and, hopefully, we won't be bankrupt by the end of the season.

Viktor Stalberg never has been better for the Nashville Predators than the day he signed as a free agent.

Fresh off a Stanley Cup run as a member of the Chicago Blakchawks, he was heralded as a star-in-waiting who would thrive and transform Nashville’s attack if given the opportunity he never got on Chicago’s deep and gifted roster.

Ever since that four-year, $12 million deal has looked like one of the worst in Predators’ history.

Now it’s gotten even worse.

Must-see TV it is not.

It is easy to imagine Thursday’s prime time matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars (7:25 p.m., NFL Network) will set some kind of record for lowest rating ever for a national NFL broadcast. It’s two small market teams with matching 2-12 records and little, if any, star power.

The 13th has not been a lucky date for James Neal.

The National Hockey League fined the high-scoring forward $2,000 on Wednesday for a second violation (the two occurred exactly one month apart) of revised rules on diving and embellishment.
