    xhrr : following up on your post in which I completely agree on......

    week 1 : 120 yards nothing exceptional

    week2: misses kenny britt and cant convert 3rd down and we lose the game when we are up by 8 with less than 4 mins to go and have the ball.

    week3 : played decent and managed the game vs the chargers. Won the game at the end kudos to locker for this win.

    week4: Outstanding first half then hit in 3rd quarter and carted off field....... 3 and 1/2 games is nothing to jump up and down about to be honest. I don't see the big deal with this guy, how many games and season can we give him the starting job! I hope we draft a QB and he wins the job and locker can have the back up position be he really isn't that great anyways.

    Couldn't of said it better

    Everyone puts our 3-1 start on Jake when our defense was the reason we started out good.

    completely agree with you here! Our defense played very well. Vs the Jets that first pass went right to Verner who is now gone :(

    Locker certainly protected the football during the aforementioned games. Something our back up could not do when it was needed. Wait, something Pickstragic couldn't do period! Man that guy was painful to watch. The Cows game should of been a win. You can't hang that loss on Jake like it was his fault we walked away with a loss.

    Which leads me to this this point do you want Jake if all he does is not lose the game and protect the football? That's not a franchise QB. Of course our backup couldn't do it that's why he is a backup and not a starter. We wouldn't need a backup if our QB could take a hit.

    I just hate how Locker's injuries give his nut huggers an excuse that they use as a crutch in all their arguments. But if Jake wasn't injured, Jake was really progressing until he got injured, matt Stafford was hurt like jake too, etc etc. He's fragile it is a fact not an opinion. He sucked his second year in the league and had 1 and 3/4 games where he played well. Not enough to form an opinion on him and plenty of QB's have had a couple splash games and turn out to be bums. He can't stay healthy enough for us to form an opinion of his game and that's not our problem its Jakes and what he has shown has been nothing to write home about.

    I dont feel like getting into it, but Locker is not the long term answer and next years draft is skimpy on potential QB's, if what I have been reading is correct.

    We will be drafting a QB imo

    At least you understand. Although it would be hard to judge what next years QB crop will look like. We know of a few but guys come out of nowhere, guys get injured, once highly touted prospects struggle, etc. Just like nobody could have guessed this years immense WR talent.

    On the surface it looks like Petty, Mariota, and Hundley are tops as of now. I really like Petty. I would take him over any QB in this class.
