    We will just have to disagree, but at least you have a thought out post instead of just typing BS ;)

    Next year, I hope he proves he can improve his accuracy, or its another few years of trying.

    Ill have to dig for it, but there was a link posted a couple weeks ago (before lockers last game or two) where Locker has the best percentage of balls over 30 or 40 yards, or something like that.

    Kind of talking out of my ass right now and dont have the link to prove it but ill find it friday. It was the intermediate and short passes he struggled with the most (as we see every week, overthrowing a WR 5-10 yards out)

    Looking even more closely though, Locker has the lowest sack % under pressure in the NFL at 10% ... that means he isn't taking sacks and is attempting passes under pressure a higher percent of the time than any other QB in the NFL. That would result in a lower comp % than someone who is getting sacked and not throwing incomplete passes (or ints I guess).

    For comparison the highest is Alex Smith who takes sacks on 34% of his pressured drop backs, and the median is Stafford who gets sacked 20% of his pressured drop backs.

    It was the same stuff people have been knocking him for since he was a freshman in college. Just general accuracy problems, doesn't seem like he handles pressure/hot reads wells either.

    It was 2% below average, which is nothing to brag about...

    Why don't we just accept reality and call him inaccurate, because he is?

    I like to call the "Sucky Zone" last season with a AVG at 6.93 and a completion percentage at 56.3 (anything under 7.0 and 58% is SUCKY)

    Really? Do you want to stick with that statement? I have news for you bub. Andrew luck has a worse completion percentage (54%) than Locker and was under 7.0. So, I guess the Colts are ready to throw him out for being innaccurate, right? The only reason you dont' like Locker is because your stupid team sucked and it's easy for a moron to blame it on the QB. Thankfully, most coaches don't follow your warped logic and throw everyone overboard without understanding the full picture.
