    I know but winning the heisman, throwing for 3700 yards and 70% completion percentage, making alabama look soft, and looking like John Elway mixed with Brett Favre out there while boning hot chicks does.

    I would like Clowney for 2014. He is going to be a beast. Would be a nice pair of DEs with Ansah on one side and Clowney on the other.

    But on to Locker. Not trying to read too much into what Hass said but it seemed to me he was being courteous. He didn't mention anything about actual talent but instead choosing to talk about his character and intelligence. Usually someone would say something like his "talent is through the roof" or "and he is only scratching the surface of his potential." His comments are more along the line of "he is a swell guy" or "the kid is awesome." Not really buying too much into the experience aspect, although he does need some more but he played some meaningful minutes his rookie year and played last year except for the games he missed. If he continues to stay injured all of the time then he isn't as intelligent as Hass thinks because that means he is still letting himself get blasted by the defense and deserves to be on the sideline.

    The problem with Locker is there is not much growth being shown. People pounded on Luck but even though he may have played bad he did what he needed to do to win in the 4th. Locker has yet to show the ability to do this. He is still inaccurate, which going 4 years of college and sitting a year I would have hoped to see some improvement in that area, especially with the talent level around him no matter the style of offense he ran. You just don't go from your WRs having career years to them looking like trash without looking at the QB position. They looked good in 2011 with Hass in (don't really know how they did with his noodle) but that is what happens when you throw on time and put it on the numbers and not over their head. Not to start a VY argument but just for a point I would like to see Locker make the jump in being more accurate and a better passer and thinker on the field the same way VY did after he was benched for a whole year by Fisher. The improvement that was shown is what I want to see out of Locker. Not a QB with the deer-in-the-headlights kind of look on the field. He has this year to show me what he is made of and then I'll make judgement. Locker was given the starting job and didn't just beat Hass out. I would have felt better if he showed in the last preseason that he was ready but I didn't feel that he showed he was really ready to take over the reigns by just embarrassing Hass out their on the field and making it obvious that he was the future and face of the team by playing a lot better than what he showed.

    I would be game for Johnny. As long as he continues to date this girl so I can see her on TV at all the games or possibly meet her at a game!

    I like the first four. I still have zero faith in Kenny Britt.

    But I'm excited to see Wright's role.


    Make or break year for Locker however it is sliced.

    She looks like Willem Dafoe when he's cross-dressing in Boondock Saints.

    C'mon Johnny Football, you can do better than Dafoe.
