    Let's all hope that the GOOD locker comes to play next season.

    Yea it's highlights but if he can be consistent like these...



    This was not all 2012 like it says tho.

    That not true at all. Our offensive line is beyond a shadow of a doubt THE cause of our sorrows last year and the year before. Locker looked very good at times in 2011, and bad last year fighting injuries, pressure in his face, and long third downs bc CJ can't dance past 4 DT and LB every play.

    All that being said, we need to see consistently good decision making and throwing. Third season, second starting week 1.

    If you watch that highlight, it clearly illustrates the problem. He's a 1 read QB. When he has to start thinking on the fly, he makes mistakes. When his dude is open, he can get it done with his arm and feet.

    Yea I do agree he gets locked in, no doubt. Though you have to allow and expect some level of improvement. If he can be consistent and get his feet under him, he's a good passer. When his feet get all happy he screws up throws. He gets a wee bit excited coming out of the snap and needs to slow down his drop IMO. There is talent there tho. There is upside. Hopefully we can exploit those attributes and make it work.

    Anyone saying he only gets a few games doesn't know what they're talking about. He's a #8 overall pick. He'll probably get this year and most of next playing poorly before we let him walk. I personally don't want that at all, hopefully he comes out ballin. He's got the work ethic, tools, and mentality to do it.

    This was an excellent draft, no need to look at what the pundits say.

    Warmack could be the draft's best player and fills a huge hole. Next time J.J. goes high to try and bat down a pass, Chance will smack the dude in his face. Can't wait to see that. With the elite all-around players you are seeing at DT, G is no longer a position you should fill out with ho-hum guys....

    Justin in the 2nd is a superb pick. We drafted a quick/little guy in KW last year. He will develop into a great possession receiver and always be there for our QB (ala Mason). Hunter as the taller guy and deep threat. Also, nice big target in the endzone. Finally, some insurance for KB and a player that will drive him to be his best. Like CB, you need 3 good players and playmakers @ WR. Between Britt/KW/Nate/Hunter/DWILL we are SET! Those are 5 WRs you can be proud of.

    Solid, if not spectacular oline, great 1-2 punch at RB, great WR/TE.... Jake has got absolutely no excuse...

    CJ still produced well last year. He actually improved from the year before. Locker didnt improve, in fact he got worse.

    Yes let's compare a 4 year starter to a 1st year starter with 5 previous games.. yep.

    Well you refered to him as running backwards johnson which really doesnt make any sense considering he improved from the year before in total yards and ypc!

    He did run backwards alot more last year as well so my point was valid.
