    I wish you would, I really do.

    Aside from you saying the Patriots would beat us by 20 or more and me saying no way, you have nothing else.

    And I recall me following thru on that bet and high-fiveing just about everything I could of yours. You have 202 High-fives, I bet I gave you 199 of them. :irked:

    I know it was windy yesterday and it was his first game back in some time, but Lock missed QUITE a bit of throws guys....

    He is our starter (def don't get me wrong) and he also made some serious plays too, but his accuracy still isn't there...

    I was not impressed by Lockers passing performance:
    9/21 (43 C%), 122 yards, 5.8 YPA, 2 TD, 0 INT

    He did have 2-3 drops and a few throw aways. But, he had multiple bad throws. The one overthrow (forgot who it was to, was it Britt) where it was a wide open 60+ yard TD. Or the one where Britt was left WIDE open, and Locker threw it short, making him have to stop running and come back for the ball. Could of been a TD, instead it was like a 30 yard gain. Locker seemed to have many inaccurate throws that could of been huge gains if thrown better. Still better than Hasselbeck, but lets not act like Locker is the franchise just yet. He's got a ton of growing left to do.

    Stats don't matter when you've got that "IT factor". He extended drives (something that's been killing us).

    His first game back + windy day + win = not caring about stats.

    It was his first game back, stats don't really say much when you're knocking off some rust and getting back into the feel of a real game. The stats weren't pretty but he did make some plays and threw for a couple of touchdowns. I know he had at least 2 throw aways and I think 3 drops, so that's 5 incompletions right there. He did miss on a few but I think he improves on this especially the deep ball where it looked like he didn't have a real feel for it, especially since we know he has an arm.

    Locker seemed to not have near the zip on the ball that he normally does. A lot of lofty balls and weird spirals. Not sure if it was due to his shoulder or the wind.

    Passing game was ehhhhh. He did well getting it done with his feet tho. CJ dominated. Locker looked rusty. It's understandable tho

    Also locker didn't try to fit any of those 50/50 balls in. Just threw it away. I'd have liked to seen some more confidence but it was good to see the smart play also.

    The debate I was referring to was in these forums, not for Munch/coaching staff. They have been very consistent with their messaging. This community has been back and forth on Hass vs Locker, and it wasn't until a couple of horrendous games from Hass that Locker seems to be getting the nod from the community, if not outright approval as "the QB of the future"

    My big question is this... If Jake goes to **** the next two games, is this community going to panic and request to see Hass or Rusty in there, or are we going to realize that it's going to happen to a rookie QB, and let him take his lumps but look for signs of improvement?
