    I was hating on him last year to. I remember where I was when I found out we signed him, I wanted to jump off the roof. Everytime the guy decides to throw the ball deep I find myself holding my breath because 1 of 3 things is going to happen, and 2 of them are bad.

    I just had to explain to my wife why I burst out laughing.

    Thank you for that.

    Actually it's more typical of fickle fans that get a hardon for a certain player and unfairly ridicule another because they set their heart on the idea that one player is far better than he really is.

    Let's be honest folks- Locker hasn't looked very good. Yet, everyone acts like he's a God compared to Hasselbeck... laughable.

    I disagree, Locker has looked really good with the cards he has been dealt. Better than everyone he was drafted with this year IMO.

    Drafted with this year?

    He was drafted last year. With Cam Newton, Christian Ponder, Andy Dalton, etc...

    All look better than him.

    I do believe Locker to be better than Hasselbeck at this point... I don't consider him to be God. I have reasonable expectations for him. Why should we expect much from Hasselbeck? He's been awful dating back to the midpoint of last season.

    What we've seen from Locker has been far more good than bad... from the Falcons and Saints games last year to the Patriots and Lions games this year. The Chargers game - yes, he looked awful. Other than that, I can't complain about a guy who has four career starts in the league.

    I was comparing the current year.

    Cam has looked awful.....VY 2.0
    Ponder has looked much improved, but not better than Locker IMO.
    and Dalton has looked average

    He's saying that he's looked better than those guys this season... but I would say that's a reach. Ponder has been very good. Cam and Dalton have sucked for the most part though.
