''You've got to be careful about saying those things, because you never know when something could change, but where we are today, like I said about it, it's more of a function of not having gone enough in practice to feel comfortable with it,'' Whisenhunt said.
The Titans will turn to Mettenberger, who completed 22 of 35 passes in a 10-7 loss to Atlanta Anthony Rendon Jerseylast week. Mettenberger threw for 187 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. The loss was Tennessee's fifth in a row and dropped Mettenberger to 0-7 as a starting quarterback in the NFL.
''You play the game to win,'' Mettenberger said. ''Losing is not fun. It's definitely not what I work for, and I'm just going to keep grinding until I can turn it around and get a win.''
