    Defenses basically walked up to the line and yelled over to Locker.."Try and throw on us, until you do, we are stuffing your run/short game"....Welcome to the last 3 years ladies and gentlemen. Nice kid, but a predictable boring, inconsistent offense. I am really excited for this change and offseason. New life!!!!

    I have never really ever seen him audible out of a defense either, can he read the D?? lol maybe I completely missed that but I was trying to look for it during the season during those few games he played

    This, in a passing league I want a pocket passer. Best way to get CJ going, have a passing game that keeps the D honest and not allow them to stack 8 in the box.

    That said, I like Locker and would be happy with him if he could play 16+ games/yr. The one thing I notice a lot about Kap, he doesn't take shots when he runs. Locker needs to learn to be a bit smarter and it will go a long way. Also, that SF OL is much better than ours. Hopefully Levitre comes out strong next year being healed in time for camp, and a year under Warmack and Schwenkes belt, along with an upgrade at RT will give Locker a bit more protection. Of course this will also help the run game. Locker showed to be much more accurate those first 4 games and had no turn overs.

    Coles notes: I like Locker and want to see a full healthy year out of him. Still want our new HC to draft a rookie, ideally a pocket passer. Nothing wrong with competition.

    RARELY does he audible out. Funny you mention that, because all of those times they ran CJ into the WALL of a defense equivalent to the 300 spartans, you would think he would opt out for a pass play or roll out or SOMETHING....Yeah, not so much..haha

    The guy's a competitor no denying that. Sad he can't stay healthy but that's life, time to move on.

    you would think especially if you see them all ready to stop the run, that's the best time to audible to a screen pass or play action but we rarely change the calls and run right in to the blitz and bam a loss of 4 yards lol

    I think we need to see what Locker can do with a real coaching staff.
