I've pretty much been against taking Locker during this whole draft process and admittedly I was stunned when the FO "reached" on him at #8. When Gabbert fell into our lap when SF passed on him I pretty much thought it was a foregone conculsion who our QB would end up being. I sat my seven-year old son (Titans fan #1) up on my lap and we watched in excitement as Goodell walked to the podium for our pick... With the 8th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select... Jake Locker???? *shakes head in disbelief* :shake: whaaaaaaat??? With that I thought, 'damn, the Titans just threw away their future. I'm mad and I think our organization made the wrong choice'. I was hot! I believed Gabbert was the more logical choice at that point. My son gave a little shrug and a "hmmph" and walked away shaking his head as well. I woke up this morning and was talking to my son over a bowl of Cheerios and looked me dead in the eye and said, "Dad, I've watched a couple of Washington games last season and I think Jake Locker is pretty good". "Yeah, whatever". I said shaking my head again. "No, seriously". he added "I think Locker can take us to the playoffs and I think he can take us to the Superbowl!!" I never saw my son explain himself with such vigor, he genuinely seemed excited with Locker. He was pretty adament with his assumption. I saw no choice in the matter from that point, my son was happy and I was to be happy with him... he's my biggest Titans supporter here. I leaned over the table, looked at him and extended my hand... "Hey son, I'll tell you this... if you're this adament about Locker and you think he is our quarterback, then I like Locker too". I shook his hand and that was that, now I'm a Locker fan. I just hope he doesn't disappoint.
