I went back and took a look at all of Locker's attempts tonight. He ended up 7/11 for 58 yards, 1 ball was dropped and 1 tipped at LOS. He also ran for 4 yards and took 2 sacks. Here's a look at each one of his attempts and my thoughts. I only have one camera view so its not easy to see everything going on in the secondary. 1st Drive: 1st Attempt - 2nd & 7 [0/1] 20 yard attempt to Britt in the middle of field that could of been picked off by LB that dropped underneath Britt. Pass ended up tipped and bounces off Britt. Poor read and decision making. Definitely a forced throw. 2nd Attempt - 3rd & 7 (Shotgun 3 WR Left, 1 WR Right) Quick pressure off right side that leads to a sack. Both Warmack and Otto get beat quickly. Jake had the ball in his hands for a total of 2.5 - 3 seconds before a defender had a hand on him. The entire pocket collapsed and no where to go with the ball. Good play to take the sack instead of forcing the ball down field. Titans go 3 and Out: Locker 0/1 with 1 Sack. Not a good start! 2nd Drive: - First play CJ runs for 54 yard TD 3rd Drive: 3rd Attempt - 1st and 10 (3 WR Set, FB Weak) [1/2, 14 yrds] Locker makes a couple of reads downfield before checking the ball down to Green in middle of field. Good check down as there was no one within 6 yards when Green caught the ball. Green breaks it outside for a 14 yard gain and 1st down. Good to see him take what the defense gave him. 4th Attempt - 1st & 10 Locker is sacked again as Roos gets beat bad by Orakpo around the edge. Jake does try to step up but Orakpo gets caught from behind. Locker had the ball in his hands for 3 to 4 seconds after snap before being sacked. 3rd & 7 (Shotgun 3 WR Set, 1 TE; 2 WR Right, 1 WR Left, TE Split Left) Good hard count by Jake pulls Orakpo off-sides. Vet move I'm sure he learned from Matt and puts us in 3rd & short instead of 3rd and Long. 5th Attempt - 3rd & 2 (Shotgun 2 WR Left, 1 WR Right, TE Split Right) [2/3, 25 yrds] Jake makes a good pre-snap read to see 1-on-1 against Washington split out right. Washington with a curl route does a job coming back to the ball to beat the defender and picks up 11 yards. Good throw by Jake and a better read to know where to go with the ball. 6th Attempt - 3rd & 4 (Shotgun Bunch Right 2 WR & TE, 1 WR Left) [3/4, 28 yrds] Quick slant to Britt for 3 yards. Not a great throw but Britt does a good job of bringing in the pass with a defender on his back. Throw was high and out of front of Britt. Looks like Britt was trying to sit down in coverage at the 1st down marker while Jake expected him to continue running the slant. Britt bailed Jake out a little on this one but comes up just short for 1st down. Next plays: 4th and short Green Converts 1st and 10 Green with 19 yrd TD run 4th Drive: 7th Attempt - 1st & 10 (2 TE Set; FB/RB Backfield) [4/5, 30 yards] Play action pass designed to bootleg left. LOLB blitzes and comes free. Jake has the LB in his face he turns towards field and quickly checks down to Q. Johnson in flat for 2 yrds. Not a big gainer but avoided a 10 yard loss and another sack. 8th Attempt - 3rd & 6 (Shotgun TE and 1 WR bunch right, 2 WR split left) [5/6, 36 yards] Locker hits Washington on drag route coming from right side. Washington sat down in coverage and locker made a good read not to throw to Britt out wide and coming back to Washington on the hash lines. Locker also did a good job of stepping up a little on this play because the RT got beat wide. He also slightly shifted to his left int he pocket to give him just a little more time to complete the pass. Play gains 6 and barely gets the first down. 9th Attempt - 2nd & 7 (2 WR Split Right, TE Left, FB) [6/7, 40 yards] Play action but LG (Velasco) gets beat right off the snap to the outside. Jake quickly steps up to avoid sack and checks the ball down on the run to Battle for a 4 yard gain. Another check down but these are smart plays to avoid sacks and forcing balls down field. Seems like the 2 years spent with Hasslebeck is coming to fruition. 10th Attempt - 3rd & 3 (Shotgun Bunch Right 2WR and 1 TE, 1 WR Left) [6/8, 40 yards] LOLB rushes while LDE drops into coverage. Wright breaks into flat where NO ONE is covering him. Jake throws a strike but Wright has a bad drop as he tried to turn up field before securing the catch. At least 10 yards would of been gained likely more as there was only one guy to beat in the open field. Nice things to see on this play...Jake quickly got the ball out of his hands as the LB rushing was at his feet. He didn't get to set his feet on the throw but still put the ball in a good location that should of definitely been caught. Bad drop by Kendall. 5th Drive: 11th Attempt - 1st & 20 Jake drops back but does not take long before he takes off for a 4 yard run. He does slide out of bounds which is good to see him protect himself. I do feel like he did not take enough time to read downfield as soon as there was a lane he ran. I believe Wright was open on a drag route underneath but difficult to tell how close defenders where in the secondary. 12th Attempt - 2nd & 16 (2WR Right; 1 WR Left, TE Left) [7/10, 40 yards] [6/9] Jake's pre-snap reads corner off Britt by 10 yards. Problem is his pre-read consisted of 3 looks over at Britt. He needs to vary that up because he telegraphed where he was going with the ball. Britt and Locker both were lazy on the play. Locker took too much time getting the ball out of this hands and Britt didn't come get the ball on a quick hitch. Defender broke on the pass and deflects it as it gets to Britt. Scary throw as a top tier CB may have been going for a pick 6. So 3 bad things on this throw, telegraphed the pass with is pre-snap looks, took too long to get the ball out of hands, and threw a quick hitch to the wide side of the field. 13th Attempt - 3rd & 16 (Shotgun) [7/10, 58 yards] Screen pass to Battle who goes Beast Mode on a DB for a 18 yrd gain. Jakes does a good job selling the screen by looking down field before dumping it off to Battle. Battle made this play happen though and needs a spot on this roster incase CJ or Green goes down. Nice 3rd and long pick up. 14th Attempt - 3rd & 10 [7/11 58 yards] Similar play as earlier in the game when he checked down to Green for a nice gain. Locker looks down field but tried to check down to a wide up Parmele underneath. Pass is deflected a LOS and Titans Punt. Overall I think he played fairly well for the 1st pre-season game. He has definitely approved in some areas but needs to continue improving with decision making. On another note, would everyone please stop with the accuracy stuff! Maybe 1 ball was off target out of his 11 attempts and that was still a completion. The other 2 legit incompletions (minus the dropped ball and tipped at LOS) were bad decisions not bad accuracy. Think of Locker as McNair in his 3rd year. The Titans are going to run the ball, use the play action pass, check down often, and then take 3 to 4 shots deep per game. This is the best thing for Jake as he learns the game and gets more comfortable with more starts. I'm not going to give up on this kid after 11 starts. He still has some improving to do but I'm not jumping ship like 3/4 of this board has already. We are a ball control offense, we are not the Broncos or Patriots with Manning or Brady as our QB. So stop expecting those results from a QB with 11 regular season starts and start having some realistic expectations.
