    I just love how everyone in the postgame was giving DW props for such a heads up play! Lmao, his momentum drove him into the DB. It was dumb luck. Dont get me wrong, nuttin wrong with dumb luck ......in our favor.

    In regards to the clutch thing, being "clutch" is not real. The bottom line is Locker plays better in a hurry-up offense.

    The other thing I have noticed is Locker did and does get a lot of hate on him because he did not perform like Kaep, Wilson, Luck, and RG3 last year. Wilson is still playing at a high level and Luck is a once every ten year prospect, but Kaep and RG3 have been struggling this year. Locker can run like them but they chose not to do the read-option thing. The read option is not doing nearly as well as last year, as teams are adjusting. Keep in mind Rodgers didn't play for three or four years before he got his chance. I am not saying Locker is Rodgers but he has not thrown a pick this year and he seems to be improving.

    I had to sign up just to post on this thread. I usually lurk.

    At this point, you people hating on Jake Locker are doing just that. Hating. Nothing more, nothing less. You're crying just to cry about something. Period.

    Today he showed the entire arsenal. Throwing on the run, from the pocket, and using his feet. A good deep ball and mid-range accuracy. Good decision making and 2 minute drill that resulted in a win. Yes he missed a throw or two, but EVERY QB misses throws. He had some drops today as well.

    WTF more do you people want? Jesus.

    I'm still not sold on Locker. His accuracy is improving but it seems like he only likes to throw curls and comebacks. It is like the receivers have to be completely facing him. I want to see him hit people on the run.

    Also, it looked like CJ was open on a lot of swing routes. Locker never looks at him. We need to get the ball in CJs hands more often. Let the playmaker make some plays.

    CJ can't catch a cold. I wouldn't throw it to him either.
