    Yeah I don't know what I would do if some random person just came up to me started talking trash. Especially because if you do anything it turns into a big story in the media. I know most people are probably nice to famous people, but if you get that ***hole I don't know if I could restrain myself.

    then he should restrain from thinking....

    this guy has got horrible accuracy. I too re-watched every game, at times he was downright awful. lets hope the simplified offense and a bit more time can fix it, but as we all know, accuracy is one thing that you often can't fix.

    You know I was am still am a huge supporter of Vince Young, but I will be the first to tell you that he had big accuracy problems in his first few seasons. However after being benched for that 13-3 season he came back and was more accurate than ever. I dont know how he did it or what clicked for him, but this is what gives me hope that Locker can do the same!

    Listen if this was Chris Johnson saying he didnt have any problems in the beginning of the season EVERYONE would be jumping all over him saying how much a piece of crap he is! Sounds like some people on here have double standards!

    People are seriously upset about this? You guys are just looking to judge or throw your dislikes on everything. Sheesh, you cant have it both ways. Half u guys cant even draft properly ( I seen the past 5 years drafted thread ) and want to talk smack on these guys or front office for not drafting right either? What is Locker supposed to come out and say yeah, i have accuracy issues? Then yall would be ripping him on how he lacks confidence and doesnt "sound like a franchise QB". You have to have confidence. No player will throw themselves under the bus when asked those kind of questions to the media.

    Locker has IT alright. Its a matter of protecting him and dont forget he was hurt. Changed up schemes in his second year. It happens. Its not always the player. Not all players cant fit every scheme. I wouldnt mind switching to what San Fran runs. Locker is capable of running that. And it gives the D more fits. As for Locker, he showed out his rookie year. This year, the whole team just didnt look good. I feel better about this upcoming season then i did last year. If we make the right moves in FA and the draft, u guys will see Locker will be a good QB. Its only his third year, and hes played about a season and a half total since being drafted. Does he need to improve? Certainly, but as i seen on this board, is that most of u panic to quickly. Gotta be patient.

    I watched all our games last year too. The thing I noticed about Locker's accuracy is this...

    I really believe that much of his inaccuracy may have been caused by read option routes. It just seems like if he had any indecision of which way the receiver would cut, go deep whatever, he seemed to be just a tad slow which resulted in some bad accuracy. Personally I don't think a 2nd year QB should have been expected to excel in a read option offense. That puts a ton of responsibility on a young QB. Not to mention the fact that it's tough on our receivers as well, to properly read the defense each play. Kendall Wright ran the wrong routes vs. specific defenses very often last year.

    Take out the read option and I really think Locker will be much better with his timing and decisiveness and his accuracy will improve as a result.
