    You mean when VY had about 5 years experience in the NFL? That just shows that you can improve over time in the league. Which is exactly what we want Locker to do, but you need PT 1st.

    VY's rookie year - 2199 yards, 12 TDs 13ints, 66 QB rating

    VY's 2nd year - 2546 yards, 9 TDs 17 ints, 71 QB rating

    .
    .
    .

    Skip to 2010, VY's 5th season in the NFL - 1255 yards, 10 TDs 3 ints, 98.6 rating



    VY sucked his 1st 2 years. He had a lot of wins, but he had a really good D that helped a lot, but he improved a TON while he was here, he just needed experience. He was on his way to becoming a good QB, but his attitude and immaturity got in the way.

    Extrapolating what Locker has done in his 6 games this year (not counting 1st texans game), he is on pace to have a better year statistically than VY ever had (2455 yards ,13 TDs, 11 ints ) ... and Locker missed 5 games this year.

    If VY could improve so much over his time here in TN, then I am sure Jake will as well. Jake will put in much more time and effort than VY ever did, so I would expect the process to be faster for him as well. The truth is JL has very little experience under his belt. He will take his lumps now. He will have his ups and his downs, but in the end all of those experiences will pay off big time for us in about a year or 2 IMO. If it hasn't happened by then, even I will be hitting the panick button. But not yet.

    Who is this "VY" guy?

    Last I checked, it is 2012, and our quarterbacks are Jake Locker, Matt Hasselback, and Rusty Smith. Lets try to not revert to 2010 here, please?

    That said, I think it is premature to judge Locker at this point. The problems we are seeing with him now were well documented (and discussed on this thread) before he was drafted...and centered on primarily problems with accuracy. Therefore, it should not really be a surprise that this is a problem now. As someone said earlier, he is on his second offensive coordinator in less than a season, and the first coordinator was a joke IMO.

    I look forward to seeing whether Tom Moore can help out here...I have a good feeling about getting him on board. But, this season will be baby steps at best, especially with the injury situation on the OL now.

    LOL idk why some of you have like panic attacks any time anyone trys to talk about Vince Young. Like he's buried in your back yard or something.

    WHOS VY? STOP BRING UP THE PAST! VY IS GONE NOW NOTHING IS BRINGING HIM BACK!

    He was the best QB we've had in the past 5 years. Not saying much but... Deal with it.

    No panic attack here....just plain annoyance at an irrelevant conversation at this point. I am well aware of his record...in all games, regular season and post season. No need to rehash it at this point IMO.

    Lets talk about the Kennedy assassination while we are at it.....

    Name someone better and if you name the glass vase aka Jake Locker you're fooling yourself. Maybe some day, but today, he's the wild thing.
