    I hereby amend any previous post of mine...

    His leash runs directly until week 17 of this season, or until his season ends due to injury.

    It's 100 percent clear that Whisenhunt expects for the job to be his. They have a cupcake and a late rounder behind him... that means their hope resides in him. Putting a 6th round QB and a person who hasn't played in 2 years behind him is not "pushing" him in any way.

    He won't get replaced this season unless he really, really stinks.

    Just realized this thread is about how many games he can miss and get an extension.. I think Whisenhunt likes him. I wouldn't be surprised to see them extend him on a dirt cheap backup deal if he fails. If he didn't see something in him, he'd already be the backup this year.

    I will put it like this, I don't want to see Mettenberger take the field at all. I was hard on Locker, but man I'm rooting for him.

    He has to stay healthy all 16, and win the Afc South which I think we are in position to do.

    He's had enough chances, one more injury at any point during the season and he's done IMO. Playing in only 18 of 32 games 2012-2013 is a problem.

    How is that wrong?

    Locker played all of 2007, 2009, and 2010. Only missed real time in 2008.

    A GM is talking up a drafted player? NO WAY!!! That's NEVER happened before.

    Mettenberger is starting the year as No. 3 and he's coming off a torn ACL. Those aren't non-issues. Those are clear impediments. Maybe he'll prove us wrong and ascend to No. 2, but he has a long way to go.

    As it stands now, if Locker goes down in Week 1, Whitehurst is starting Week 2.

    Facts, bro. You should consider looking at them before you call people out.
