    In the first two games i've seen at least four or five passes hit defenders square in the chest or hands and be dropped so Jake is very lucky none of those were intercepted.I saw two yesterday that were dropped after looking like they were sure picks.He is definitely lucky to be sitting at 0INT so far.

    We don't need to see what Fitz can do we already now that. He is a younger version of Hasselbeck. An average, decent backup.

    Mcnair had a passing rating of 70 in his first season as a starter in 97 and that was his third season as a pro. I guess they should have pronounced him a failure and moved on?

    I have gone back and watched the game and primarily watched Locker. Yes some throws were off line. That throw to wright for TD is big time throw. We had some good passing plays reversed because of penalties. Especially the long one to Britt. The third quarter we tried to run and tried to run and tried to run especially deep in our end zone . Of course that didn't work and the teed off on rushing QB when we were 3rd and long. The final throw on the slant was not a good throw. Still like a roll out throw or run for locker. The loss not on the QB. Yes he needs to step up and grow some and hope quickly, but the play calling in the third quarter gassed our defense at the end of the game.

    I think it's definitely too early to be calling for Fitzpatrick. But if Jake doesn't step it up soon I just hope we don't wait to long to make the move. It'd be a complete shame to let this defense go to waste.

    between the bad play calling and poor play by locker, idk if our offense will get on track, our schedule will get harder too when we play sea, san fran, and denver. We have a lot to work on

    I pretty much agree with the original post. The passer rating & 0 turnovers are good. That comp % & yards per attempt need to be higher. He's been good and bad. Inconsistent at times with his accuracy and it's hurt us.

    if you want to win at this level, you need to be accurate all the time, one mistake can cost a game and locker's inconsistent performance is what will weigh this team down. we have a great d, decent running game, revamped o line, talented wr and te's. We need a QB

    No mistakes? Throwing an interception isn't the only mistake a QB can make. There were at least 4 balls yesterday that any NFL QB should complete that Locker missed and lead to us punting.
