    I remember reading this article back before the draft and thought it was pretty interesting.

    IMO, this year we had one of the best drafts!

    One thing that still makes me a little nervous about Locker is how good Keith Price looks for Washington. The guy still runs for his life and gets consistently creamed, but he has 29 TD's and has completed 70% of his passes this year and his receivers look fantastic.

    I went and checked a few of the threads before the draft to make sure I wasn't remembering things wrong. There were like 5 people on here who said they would be okay if the Titans drafted Gabbert. He was basically the least popular QB in the draft on this forum (behind Newton, Ponder, Dalton, Kaepernick, Mallett and, of course, Locker--who was the most popular pick).

    If you want to pat yourself on the back for predicting Gabbert would be a bust, go for it. Just know that basically every single member on this forum gets to do the same.

    When the Titans went to pick and Gabbert was still on the board, I was just praying that we did not take him. Then when the Jags actually traded up to get this guy, it just made my day ... I always thought this guy would be a bust.

    I didn't see any of the game though, did McCown come in due to injury or just bad play?

    Ok a rookie without good talent around him but is there any excuse for him not completing at least half of his passes?

    I don't recall accuracy being a major issue with this guy during the evaluation process.

    Deep ball accuracy was a big issue. All he really did in college was throw screen passes and intermediate routes, his deep ball was horrific.

    He's a rookie, he's going to have his share of bad games. Way too early to call him a bust and bad move to pull him from the lineup yesterday
