    Yeah SF is looking very winnable now. Can't believe they lost to the damn Colts.

    There were literally 3 or 4 throws that I can remember that I just thought that Locker threw poorly (the Damien Williams throw, the pass to Nate that Munch challenged, a screen attempt to Johnson, and a pass to Britt in the end zone that he threw behind the CB) but other then those he was putting the ball where he needed to all game.

    Does he need to get more consistent on his passes? Yes, especially on some of his deep balls, but he was not overall inaccurate in this game.

    Keep in mind on deep balls qb's are often taught to overthrow a bit rather than underthrow. Over=incomplete, Under= Pick or worse (6).

    He's shown severe improvement from last year in the accuracy department, especially today (think only 2 really missed throws). Scared to see this board when his stink game comes along (bound to happen to everyone sooner or later).

    Jake Locker played well enough today. I'm still not sold on him as a consistent efficient starter in this league though.

    He nearly lost us the game when he overthrew Williams (I think) on that last drive by 5 yards. If Hunter doesn't go up and make a play, we're sitting at 1-2 and everyone is talking about making a switch at QB and how far the sky has fallen..

    I don't see how one play determines a whole game. Yeah it was a little deep but he hit Hunter on the very next play. Locker had a great game and has had a pretty good season so far. Still no turnovers, game winning drives, 90+ yard drives, and has progressed a lot since last year.

    No turnovers is honestly huge. And that almost interception at the end should've been an easy catch by Delanie.

    Only three NFL starting quarterbacks have thrown no interceptions thus far: Peyton Manning, Alex Smith, and Jake Locker.
