    I like what I see. The long pass to Stevens and that Nate TD pass were very nice throws.

    Some really good throws, some really bad throws.

    I'm impressed so far- still a long way to go though.

    Agreed. He plays with poise but he also makes a few typical rookie mistakes.

    The TD to Washington was beautiful because he looked off the safety. That's impressive. His passes to Stevens and the last one to Washington were both very nice. He just missed Williams on the 3rd-and-1 but it was there.

    He obviously does a lot with his legs and moves around in the pocket well. The future looks bright.

    I'm wondering if some of the out of bounds throw s were him doing his best hass impression and just hacking em away. Hard to say without seeing the full view. But he is making passes down held that hass cant anymoe, so thats nice to look forward to with britt

    Washington's two biggest games this season have come with Locker at QB. It can only get better with Britt back next season.

    What I love about how he played is that his bad throws seemed to be more timing based throws. He missed a couple timing routes that where outs and that little bubble screen to DWill. He had a couple drops and a couple batted down. A couple were bad throws, but big deal; the slant to DWill got a way from him and he threw the fade to DWill about 2 yards too long after getting lit up... still don't get that play call but whatever.

    I don't know, I keep seeing many of you say that he's still not ready but I don't see that at all. Some of those timing routes he missed can be chalked up to a lack of practice time and not knowing his individual receivers tendencies very well. To me he nailed all the throws that were not timing based, the long down the seam throws were right on the money. Right now he is a better quarterback than Hasslebeck. I can see why the Titans would like to protect him and bring him along slowly so if he get's benched again I get it. But to say that he's not ready to start or playing a high level is just ignorant.

    The play that's bugging me most is at the 1:08 mark of this video. Why doesn't Jake hold onto the ball and run for a 1st? Chris Johnson wasn't doing jack all day, but yet Locker gives up easy yards to let C.J. blow a play.... I understand as a QB, he needs to protect himself from unnecessary hits, but C.J. wasn't a guy at all that day that you could rely to help you out.
