    Youre crazy if you think of of those rookie QB's are an upgrade to Locker.

    Nice video.... Albeit nothing new, but still a nice video. Like that he gave 'gotitans.com' some love there at the end.

    After his analysis but before he actually said the grade, I predicted a B+ so that was pretty cool. Like the point he made about QB, but I'ma hope that people here are right in that with a cleaner pocket and better scheme, Lock can shine.

    If you watch the film from last year you see 2 Jake Lockers.

    The one who starts the season (good pocket awareness) and then the guy that came back from the shoulder injury (sloppy footwork, looks startled).

    Trust me when I say this, Jake Locker will play well in 2013 with all these new O-Linemen.

    This maybe true but to suggest a 3rd round rookie QB can come in and be better day 1 then two NFL experienced QB's is implausible. Also add in the fact that the Titans need to give Locker a chance or else they never will know what they have in him and it is clear why they didn't draft a QB. No one in this years class (outside of Smith) was better.

    No rookie QB in this draft could come in and be better than locker, it's crazy to say otherwise. Like the comments on some of the other picks like warmack and hunter but locker will shine in 2013, he's got the arm, oline, and recievers now to be like what he showed in the game against the saints 2 yrs ago.. That's the jake we'll see this year

    Locker is better than every QB this draft had to offer. Let alone a 3rd round QB. Just another one of them haters that thinks all young QB's are supposed to produce like the RG3s and Andrew Lucks of the world. Yeah, Locker is no RG3 or Luck, but who is?!? Please don't say Wilson, Kaepernick and Newton...please!!!

    I'm willing to bet that Jake Locker has a better year, statistically, than both Wilson and Kaepernick next season. Who wants to bet? I'm also willing to bet Locker leads the Titans to more wins than Cam Newton's Panthers(Newton has all the talent, but he lacks a brain so it will be hard for him to be a winner in this league). Just because Locker didn't put up good numbers on one of the worst teams in the league last year doesn't mean he's not good. It means the O-line, WR's, and defense were fuc#$@ horrible. Kaepernick and Wilson are blessed with the league's best defenses and some stout offensive line/good WR's and RB's. Not one defense was gameplanning to stop them because nobody was scared of them. That will change. They will get exposed...big time. On the other hand, the league knew about Locker and how bad our O-line was.

    I can't wait til this season when all these people finally learn something about football. Titans will rule again!!!!!!!

    As others have said, I agree with everything other than the locker negativity. Now that he's healed up and got some more experience I think he'll be just fine. Not to mention the OL improvements. I'm actually optimistic about this season. If the Titans can stay healthy, the skys the limit.
