    According to the football focus grades Locker is one of our best players on the offense. Our skill position players who have basically sucked and 3 players on the offensive line had negative scores. Mooney and Stevens are just blockers. Britt has been worthless and CJ has been mediocre at best and a total non factor in the passing game.

    Perhaps we can judge Locker better when he gets more support.

    The only opinion that Dunce will agree with is the one where Locker is a total bust. I put him in the same category as those infantile posters who want us to lose for draft picks.

    This is a thread about Jake Locker not Steve Mcxnair. Mcnair was just used for comparative purposes but the Tennessee hating and southern USA hating Douche bag wanted to bash Mcnair and Locker.

    Most normal people think Mcnair was a good player.

    I agree with that for the most part but I don't think Locker is our best player on offense. our wr core needs to get better period but that is also based on our passing game

    I am being honest with myself in saying I think he was a great player.. You just want to look at stats to judge a player which is dumb. I trust my opinion and value the opinion of those I mentioned before who are held in pretty high regard

    This feels like a situation where the numbers aren't telling the whole story. While Britt has admittedly been dropping a lot of catchable balls, the other receivers are doing a decent job of getting open and have made some great plays on questionable decisions/throws by Jake.

    The O-line issue concerns me though. For the moves we made they should be doing a much better job. I really hope these next few games against sub par defenses help them gel and gives them the confidence to play the way we think they can.

    Sure.

    Norm Van Brocklin has less yards than Steve, and more INT's than TD's

    How the F do you go to the HoF when your INT's are higher than your TD's?

    Same thing for Bob Waterfield.

    I can keep going if needed.
