    We all thought Locker's injury was worse because of how it looked at the time, with him being carted off the field. Whenever the cart comes out you automatically think/fear the worst. Thankfully the injury wasn't as serious as everyone thought. The 4-8 week recovery was just an educated guess. No doctor or trainer knows how quickly someone will heal/recover.

    I think you have to do this. Fitz has just been too careless with the ball in the last two games. Jake may not be 100% but if he can just go in and protect the ball, not make any mistakes, and just manage the game he will do better that what Fitz can do. You can play Locker and not use the whole package of Locker plays and play it really conservatively to help protect him.

    huge risk especially with a rookie center starting his first live game in the nfl. I know turner sucks but schwenke will need a little time to adjust to full speed. I hope they both do well if Jake starts its just a little worrisome.

    You don't necessarily need a bunch of big plays to win, but you can't have a stagnant offense where the QBs only completions are to the other team.

    Yeah I actually really liked him in Buffalo.. I was excited when we signed him. Not really sure has changed with him in such short time.

    We get San Francisco at the wrong time. I expect a ton of max protection. Stevens, Taylor and Walker will need an oxygen breather after this game if Locker plays.

    Locker coming back can be a storm of problems against the 9ers.

    He might be gimpy, his addition of running is cut substantially. He's forcing extra protection to stay in to keep him clean. Rookie C starting as well. Probably not as in sync with the WRs as he was prior. Hip injury could equal a change in release/steps/planting.

    This could go very very badly.
