    From the Tennessean:

    And somehow he managed to come back and be productive. Does this bode well for a Locker recovery?

    And some news about Locker's recovery:

    I will cringe every time he gets hit hard by a defender.

    So basically Phillips played the year out with the same injury as our tough QB hmm...

    Jakes a guy your root for cause he's a good dude but I'm over him. Fragile is something he will always be and the sooner we accept that the better.

    Jake's been in the league for three years and the most notable things we can discuss about him are his injuries and how great a guy he is, what a shame.

    It is a shame. Locker deserves better. 2014 is his year.

    Yeah keep hoping. He has played one full season in 7 years dating back to college but I'm sure he is going to magically become durable all the sudden. Even if he does play a complete season that is one year. How about the year after and the year after that? Long term he is not the answer.

    If Steve Young can take the path he took and be a HOF QB, then Locker still has plenty of time to get it right.

    Dude stop reaching. Jake isn't gonna become Steve Young and Tom Savage isn't going to become Tom Brady just like I'm never going to win the lottery.

    Phillips tackles Locker in training camp, and they both go down. :facepalm:
