    Great assessment. Exactly what I saw during the game.
    I do not understand some people criticizing Jake after the game he had. So he had a couple of overthrown balls in this game. What the hell? Do we expect him to be perfect on every pass? That was one hell of a game by Jake.

    Jake is doing fine, sadly due to expectations beyond his control everybody wants him to be further advanced than a qb should be at this time. Fast food nation and fast food demands on qb's is not the way to go. RG3 has regressed as has Kaepernick and Luck is doing fine due to a vet team same as Russel Wilson. Be patient this team is building nobody expects a Superbowl this season.

    No. We don't.

    Because we constantly have THIS type of post reminding us that he's not a 3rd year player, but instead a rookie.

    Jake Locker- the only 3rd yr player up for the Rookie of the Year Award.





    This is his 3rd season. Quit with the excuses.

    Steve Mcnair was an MVP candidate in 2002 with numbers that were not as good as Jake.

    2-1 record.

    90 passing rating.

    Getting close to that 60% goal with 58%.

    A nice increase to his yards per attempt 6.6 getting close to that 7.0 minimal goal.

    No turnovers!

    And only 7 sacks a very impressive number given the amount of times teams have blitzed him.

    On pace for 440 yards rushing.

    I gave Jake a C+ after last week's game. I'm increasing his grade to B.

    When locker develops a total rapport with Hunter and Wright 2 very different players it is going to be something.

    That's a great thought. Kendall is a prototypical possession guy, who refuses to get tackled and tries to rack up the YAC as much as he can. Justin Hunter (based one one play + his natural skillset and gazelle like physique) is a deep threat. Nate Washington is the perfect third player to compliment those two next year in the absence of Britt if Hunter and KW both develop well this year.

    Dunce has such a "anti-tennessee" mindset he can't be happy about a little progress when he sees it. Jake looked like a NFL qb today. Was he perfect? No, but he did lead two 90+ yard drives including the game winner with ZERO timeouts with a great pass. He is sometimes still a little high with the passes, but I see progress. Loved seeing him tuck and hurt the other team a little, should keep D's honest.

    Nobody with a brain stem can bash Jake's play sunday.

    Jake improved his stats in every possible way and as Gut said that despite 2 non interference calls in the endzone, the Britt drops and the bad calls against Nate.
    The Hammer and TitanJeff high five this.

    I wonder if dunce still has that hard on for Christian Ponder? The most NFL ready QB prospect in the 2011 draft? Talk about getting that one wrong!

    Don't look now but Jake Locker is 7th in the NFL in total QBR right now. The only young QB ahead of him is Andrew Luck.
