    They are dropping passes b/c they are poorly thrown balls with bad accuracy!

    Dude just shut up. You are obviously a Locker hater and that has been know for a while now. There have been several passes that have hit recievers right in the hands, that were flat out dropped and it happens every single week. Not every single pass is perfect, but when you watch other teams with 'elite' QBs, their WRs catch passes that are off target all the time. Its not like every single pass they throw is perfect every time. Have you watched RGIII or Luck play? There are countless times I have seen them throw behind the WR or throw the ball to high or under throw, etc but the WRs catch EVERYTHING ... Our WRs (and cook) are dropping passes that hit them in the hands on a weekly basis now. Could the ball been in a slightly better position on sometimes? Sure, but that does not excuse them from dropping the passes, and you can't sit there and act like every other QB in the NFL doesn't complete passes like that every single game.

    I do wonder though if maybe part of the problem is that they aren't used to the velocity that Locker puts on some of his passes. The WRs still don't have a lot of experience playing with Jake, and going from noodle arm 'beck to Locker is probably quite a bit different. not that that excuses them, but there has got to be an explaination as to why these guys are dropping passes that they should be catching

    I agree. End of 2013 we should know if JL is the guy I hoped we drafted.

    IMO so far he looks the part and acts the part, but he has not played up too the part. We will see.

    how poorly thrown can the be when they hit the target in stride right in the hands?

    was that a poorly throw pass that Cook butchered in the EZ?

    It's the fumbles that are startling, he looks like a bumbling idiot at times.

    There were more poorly thrown balls then not that game. Locker played like crap! End of story. His worst game yet as a starter! Also cook makes some crazy catches for him so you cant get too mad at him if he drops one. I cant remember which cook drop you were talking about. If you are talking about that 3rd down one at the end of the game, that was clearly PI!

    Locker finished the game well. Dropped passes kept us from coming back.

    Same story last week against Jacksonville.

    I was pleased with Locker yesterday. Showed a lot of toughness and resiliency. He started very poorly and still managed to make the game interesting. You guys think VY would have recovered?
