    I definitely wouldn't say I "wanted" him but I didn't really mind the pick. I was really wanting us to go with a more polished pocket passer after the VY debacle though.

    Looking back, clearly the best thing we could've done was go Watt and then grab a QB in the 2nd. Or else just wait until the following year to draft a QB. Oh well. Woulda, coulda, shoulda.

    I remember a Jags fan telling me that Tennessee would regret that decision for the next decade. :hugelaugh: Okay guys, obviously if we could do it again we probably would take Locker. But we didn't know that Hass was coming, and did you really want to see another season with KFC as our QB? We had to take Locker, and that pick still could work out.. all he has to do is stay healthy.

    I also remember our Front Office saying that they would have taken Locker 1st overall over Cam, or they would have traded down for Locker. Locker was their guy, so you can bet we're gonna ride his ship til it sinks. They won't abandon just because it has taken on a bit of water.

    Take locker over Cam??? If they can sit back in their office today and still say that then they have their own issues to work out. Locker was their guy because they don't know how to evaluate talent and this team lacks a lot of talent. Pollard and Walker have the most talent on the team and they came in through free agency. This team needs a new direction, this ship is going down like TITANIC!

    WHEN I saw gabber on the board. I almost had a heart attack.....I swear th at was the longest couple minutes of my life. I didn't understand how gabber came out of NOWHERE to be a 1st round pick. made no sense to me at all and I wanted no part of him

    what makes you so confident that this guy will play all year long next year? He does not protect himself on the field and continues to get hurt. Exactly how many football games has he won as a starter here in TN? To my knowledge, not that many.

    its not that he doesn't protect himself! hes only been hurt on what you called a reckless play once...that tackle, but other than that it was a cheap shot by jets and a freak injury with the foot.

    if he say had been hurt multiple times on big hits, id say yea ok hes probably not gonna stay healthy, i.e mike vick.

    but the way hes been hurt, to me, is just more freakich than anything.

    hell be fine. and this year, pre injury, he was 3-1. now if he stays healthy all season I definitely see a consistent 10 plus wins from this team with him under center.

    I cant say that about any rookie coming in....so id rather stick with locker, bring in a young 3-5 round qb to back him up, or maybe someone like orton or Campbell. don't know there contract situations but a trade can be made,
