    ...but if you are a game manager, you aren't airmailing bombs into triple coverage. He was only a "game manager" because they dropped balls and we won. He just wasn't playing confidently.

    Hahahaha!

    The LSU coaching staff...? Oh, I hope you're joking. What does LSU know about good QBs? All they've ever had there is less-talented Tim Tebows.

    Look, I know a lot of you guys want to believe in Jake. I like the kid and wish he would turn into the next Steve Young. But, truth is- he's not a starting-caliber NFL QB and never will be. Comparing him to VY, Sanchez, and Tebow just proves that point.

    So basically you expect Locker to be as good in his 9th start as arguably the greatest QB of all time 10 years into his HOF career???? I think we found the probably here.

    The Titans' offense followed up the four interceptions with a grand total of 14 plays, 26 yards, 7:50 with the ball and four punts. - ESPN.com

    Just a nasty line right there..... And that predominantly does fall on Jake.

    You try playing QB with 5 men bearing down on you as your back ups back ups are blocking for you.

    Who cares what QB's play for LSU, it was their defense I was quoting.

    They play other teams QB's you know..

    As a comparison have a look at Steve McNair's first few years. Some people take time to develop.

    Jake is not a player I'm worried about. O-Line and coaching is terrible, hard to succeed with crap all around you.

    We'd probably be 8-6 at the extreme worst with Peyton. QB consistency has been a huge issue with us all year. Locker gave Indy that game.

    No... but you said QBs don't make Olines look good. I was making a point on how good QBs can and do.
