Don't forget record breaker Drew Brees is only 6'0. So is Russell Wilson
While being tall helps a QB, being short isn't a handicap at all. QB's don't throw over linemen, they throw around them thru throwing lanes. To be good you just have to be able to move in confined spaces.
Everything except for the most important thing.....skill. He doesnt have the talent to be a legit qb in the NFL. At least he hasn't shown it yet!
I personally haven't given up on Locker. Stafford was terrible his first two season fighting through injury. I believe if Locker can stay healthy and our O-line is tops, he can be successful
Oh he's shown he can play at this level, don't you start with that.
While his win-loss record is "meh", his team has been "meh" the whole time.
Notice 2011 how exciting he was to watch, well thats due to being a better team in 2011.
Surround your QB with solid teammates and you'll get what you're looking for. I think even you know that.
Yea success in the NFL isn't an overnight thing, it takes time. 99% of the league takes 2-3 years to figure it out. Jake is only in his 3rd year, if we're sitting here talking about this in 2014 or later then maybe some of the criticisms are justified, but right now no.
Players including WR's, DB's and QB's make tremendous improvements from year 2 to 3, give the guy a chance.
Would it be better he comes in on fire and burns out after a few years like VY did? You want him to get lucky like Tebow a few times and never become anything? The team has been crap, so its no surprise the QB, RB, WR's, and defense has stunk.
we all know how good Matt Flynn looked in his spot relief duty. And we've seen how good VY was in relief of KFC. and the list goes on and on. a few flashes does not make you a good QB.
If Locker can do this for a whole season.. then 10 seasons, he'll be considered a good QB.
I just find it unusual people want to crucify a growing player when he's still yet to peak..
The guy is only in his 3rd freaking season, it's hilarious what some people expect.
I mean I know we live in a world today where instant gratification is a regular, but not everything can be microwaved.
How was that 2011 team better offensively? CJ performed better this year, he actually had Britt this past year, the addittion of Wright....The only difference is the Oline b/c of injuries. But even before the Oline went south he was still struggling!
Also in 2011 he had a few chances to close a game with a come from behind victory. He led us back but then choked in the end aka the saints game!
