When the Titans battle the Browns today, one talented young quarterback will take to the field right away while another remains on the sidelines.

The Browns threw Colt McCoy into the starter's role less than halfway through his 2010 rookie season, letting him learn through some tough experiences.

The Titans have no such plans for first-round selection Jake Locker, which is why they signed proven veteran Matt Hasselbeck after the lockout.

Both teams can point to some degree of early success. An improved McCoy has the Browns off to a 2-1 start, while an effective Hasselbeck has set a strong example for Locker while leading the Titans to the same record.
