    Jake Locker did look good the other night, but I wouldn't put him in the Hall of Fame just yet.

    He does have potential though, probably more so than most of the QBs from this year's draft.

    I like Jake. And, i hope he reaches all that is hoped for him. But, isn't this a classic case of "putting the cart before the horse?"

    He tore the flexor tendon in his thumb. It was a legit injury (for a QB).

    McNair was mentoring Young in 2005 similar to how Hasselbeck did Locker last year. 2006 comes and off goes the mentor, 2011 comes and here comes the mentor. The universe is ready to cooperate and win us a Super Bowl. God got confused, but better late than never.
