    I'm up for giving him a shot of Patron and wishing him luck in the fish sandwich business.

    Loving the state of this team and how its reflecting on the forum these days.

    If I want to, and believe me I do, I can talk about how much Bud Adams sucks, or flip over a thread and talk about how much Mike Munchak sucks, and just look at that, one click away and now I'm talking about how much Jake Locker sucks.

    they all suck, I've never had darker days as a titans fan, no hope in sight. This is just great! Thank god I have my best buddy boyfriend CJ to keep me sane, I'm like smeagle from LOTR, he's my precious..

    I don't understand this argument, that Jake's career as a Titan should be over, since he just sucks. I hate to keep pointing this out or bring is up as some sort of excuse for Locker but he has a grand total of 11 career starts; one of which he got hurt on the second series of the game in Houston.

    You talk like he throws the ball like VY, someone many were more than patient with who, frankly, didn't deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    I think the problem with most of you who are already convinced Locker will not pan out is that you've seen it happen very recently with VY and you are scared to death it is going to happen again. I understand that pessimistic feeling after what we went through with the VY experiment, but I don't think it's very fair to lump in Locker as part of another failed experiment just yet.

    Honestly I think Jake should have started his rookie year to get as much game experience as possible early on. The days of drafting a franchise QB then handling him with kid gloves are long gone. The origination made a mistake thinking Hass was somehow going to take this team to the Superbowl. The problem is we have one less year in which to evaluate Locker.

    Get back to me after his 3rd year as a starter, if he's not improved by then, then I'm with you but calling for his head after 11 starts and a major shoulder problem just doesn't seem fair at all.

    I talk like he throws like VY? Nope, because I think that'd be too nice of a compliment at this point. At least VY had the long-ball in his arsenal... Jake has nothing. (and I hate that this almost seems like I'm being nice to VY)

    "Only 11 games" isn't a decent excuse either. How many games have the MANY other QBs drafted the past 2 seasons played? Almost all of them look better than he does.

    I guess we could use the injury as an excuse- but here we go again. Another McNair. "Leave him alone! He plays terribly because he's tough!! He's hurt!"... sorry. If you're hurt- get off the field. Let someone that can actually play step in. (he had 2 players behind him that could have done as good or better)

    After his THIRD year as a starter??.... So he can suck for a whole 'nother season? You serious? You actually want to give him half a decade to show us he MIGHT be worth keeping?


    good lord...

    How do you guys feel about if we have an offense similar to the skins next year. Jake is mobile enough, and CJ could benefit from it. Mike has said that he is going to address the Oline, and he is excited about that. I read that in The Tennessean. Just a suggestion.
