    So he's shouldn't throw to hos receivers running over the middle? How you gonna blame Locker for the fumble without even mentioning that Chandler Jones beat Roos like he stole hos lunch money.

    The only real mistake that was on Locker was the pick. He also made some errant throws. But he did a lot of things well.

    No QB, not Brady or Rodgers Puts the ball on the numbers perfectly everytime. Locker threw the ball over the middle where only Nate could catch it. It was high no doubt. But its football and over the middle gets rough. Nate was going to get hit regardless.

    The fumble was bad. Can't have that happening every week. Reminded me of VY. And that scares me.

    That was more on Roos and the play call/blocking assignment/blitz pickup. Jake literally had zero chance to do anything, and he will learn to cover up and protect the ball.

    But the difference is that Locker will acknowledge that he screwed up and will look to improve on that... VY will just go "aint nobody tell me what to do"

    Simple question. Do QB"s get blindsided and hold onto the ball. If the answer is yes, I dont consider that "great" in any way

    If it were a foot lower, then it would have been an amazing throw. I saw a lot more out of Locker than I expected and am hopeful he can be the guy for us. However if one TD is considered a "great" game for a QB, then the standards are obviously pretty low.

    I guess Ill just have to disagree with everyone because I did not see greatness out there today. I saw a good QB that could make some good throws. Nothing great about his performance today.

    I didn't see the fumble live, heard about it, and saw the replay while I was doing something else so all I saw was Locker turn get hit and the ball squirted out ala VY.

    There were also some no PI calls that were obvious, including the one in the endzone and the push off on the endzone tip and pick. Of course Tenn wouldn't get those calls against the Pats.
