    After studying Jake Locker's game tape, ESPN's Ron Jaworski came away believing Locker still has a "long way to go" to become a successful NFL quarterback.
    Ranked 31st in Jaws' QB Countdown, Locker displayed suspect awareness in terms of reading defenses, poorer accuracy on movement throws than expected, and a startling proneness to getting sacked. "While Locker has often been talked about as throwing well on the run, a careful look at all his throws reveals that he is erratic with both his clarity and his accuracy," Jaws stated. "What really stood out in evaluating Locker was the number of sacks he took that resulted from pressure outside the box, especially from the slot." Jaworski concluded by saying, "if (Locker) does not throw with more consistent accuracy, he will always struggle to become a quality NFL starter."

    FITZ MAGIC TIME!!!

    No but really, while Locker obviously isn't *THAT* bad of a starting QB, he hasn't proven himself to be even in the top 20/32. I believe he has the ability and the talent around him to get it done, but he has to prove it this season. I got faith in him though, he will be a top 15 QB in 2 years. (Or Fitz will)

    Small amount of snaps and also hurt. However, we all know he has had issues with accuracy. Who was 32? Blaine gabbert?

    With Lockers injuries and the lack of protection, he hasn't started out impressing anyone.
    This year will make or break him. If he doesn't improve, the Titans will probably draft a QB come April, IMO.

    I would think Butt-Fumble Sanchez.

    Clearly Jaws old age is catching up with him, so hed probably rank VY 3rd overall just ahead of Aaron Rodgers.

    I'd like to see the entire list. No way he's the second worst QB in the NFL. That's ridiculous.

    He ranked Matt Flynn #32 FYI. I bet his top 10 is awful, and I bet he has Flacco top 5.

    I can't find the full list though.
