    I think Locker will start next year, even with a new coach. Most coaches would be willing to work with him (great attitude and physical tools). They will bring in a free agent though and or a mid round pick. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this but it's what I think will happen.

    I am sure most coaches would work with him but most coaches don't want to have to deal with an injury prone qb and have a possible qb controversy during the season.

    his injuries don't nag, they're just weird incidents and he's tough, just unlucky. They won't bring in anyone high profile that would cause controversy, I highly doubt it.

    I would love to agree but how many injuries is too many to chalk it all up to bad luck?

    Yea I thought about that, but Locker isn't that type of guy, he wouldn't become an issue. Like say a Vince Young.

    This is true. While he may not have the same issue twice, he will have something go wrong.

    I absolutely love Locker, but I love winning more, and having your starting QB out often isn't conducive with winning.

    The one and only thing Jake Locker lacks is the survival skill, he just puts himself in harms way too often to be a QB.

    what has he had? a shoulder, hip and knee, foot? aye sh*t happens. I don't know, are his bones more fragile than the average ? I'm no doctor but he does get hurt a lot. We will see.

    i see but it just seems too early to just get rid of him. do you think he stays as a backup?
