    Agreed, they need to call a few play action deep throws just to keep D honest on 1st down, possibly to Justin Hunter. I'm rooting for Jake and I hope that when he sees the film of him panicking that he gets pissed and calms down.

    I feel like he may panic more as the season goes on because he knows his job is on the line. I don't think he can handle the nfl pressure. Ill be happy if he does but I just don't see it.

    Relax man. That panic stuff gets better with more game experience. Even if he never turns into what we wanted when we drafted him, he will improve with that kind of thing. He is also going to face lesser defenses than he has thus far this season in all but a few games from here on out. Don't give up on him yet man. He will improve some. I can guarantee you that. We all hope he improves a lot. His biggest problem as a QB (imo) is the very "panic" you speak of, and that is as correctable (or more so) than just about any aspect of playing the position.

    Oh no doubt. Those were the games that i was referring to when I said "all but a few" Those, and the Texans again in December. Not that big on the Broncos defense myself. They did play pretty well against the Giants though.

    and von miller will be back when we play them in denver..... gonna be tough to compete with manning the way he is playing this year, he is ridiculous 9td and 0int. Jake is gonna have to air it out in that game.

    I completely agree. Manning is Manning. Had he come to Tennessee, we would be the super bowl favorites right now.

    Scared to take risks... and it's just stupid.

    I agree, Can't be scared to take risks. Do these coaches trust Locker? Thats the question, but there is a lot of questions at this point.

    It's like that article Ensconatus posted a few months back. Being afraid to take risks only hurts QB development.
