    I have been very impressed with SI's writers on the NFL this year.

    He conveniently leaves out the fact that the potential INT he's talking about was a perfectly thrown ball and would have been impossible to blame anyone but Delanie Walker for.

    Now that Locker is the established starter, he isn't in "win the game" mode all the time.

    If he continues to protect the ball, run when he has to, and take what the defense gives him... He will be fine. So will the team.

    Good read, and yes, we are witnessing the rise of Jake Locker right before our eyes.

    Article convinced me to dislike Locker again.

    100% back on the huge Weeden bandwagon once more.

    He makes a great point about having the arm to make all the throws but not having that consistency yet, if he progresses a bit more and hits those throws more often then not then yes we are witnessing the rise of Jake Locker.
