    One thing I notice that isn't being taken into consideration is how much better Locker is when is allowed to find a rhythm. The run, run, pass, punt strategy doesn't allow that. We saw less of that on Sunday. Hopefully, the coaches realize that. When I look at the stat line this article is referencing after three games, I'm reminded about how abysmal our gameplan was against the Steelers and Texans.

    What do you mean? He says it right here:
    Of course, that play isn't Locker's fault, as he hits Delanie Walker in stride over the middle of the field, only for Walker to drop the pass into the arms of Marcus Gilchrist, who then promptly drops the game-winning interception.

    Locker still misses easy completions on a routine basis, he HAS to start limiting those. He's improved a ton, but he's not done yet. Can't wait to see him at the end of the year.

    You guys notice how every game this year he's gotten better? Not only that, it seems we open up the playbook more and more every game. Check out his game by game stats, every game his #s improve.

    More comp, att, comp%, yards, avg, rating, and r. yards every game. Impressive. I'm just hoping we can get a consistent 60+ comp% on 20+ completions w/ around 250+ yards every game. Pair that with 1 TD and the occassional INT, with 30+ rushing yards.
