    LOL. Could the bias be any more obvious?

    This is always going to be the story with Locker. He's going to have those "well placed" (as much as we as fans feel the need to point out his well placed balls, should tell you everything you need to know about his accuracy) throws that are right on the money and make him look the part. But he's going to come right back with the trash throw into double coverage or the one that sails 15 yards over the target on 3rd and manageable.

    What I saw from the Bengals game, he checked down a lot early, And I struggle to even say check down because he really is still 1 read and the balls out because he STILL can't go through his progressions. The Bengals played soft at the line so he hit a lot of open receivers early on. But anything down field still proves to be nonexistent with him under center, as result he only put up 3 points, and despite the missed field goals (part of the game), 3's aren't 6's.

    Can your Bias be more obvious? The guy still completed 60% of his passes with 2 (And a debatable 3rd for td) dropped passes. What else can you ask for? I guess if your not Brady or Manning you just suck as a qb in the NFL now-a-days...

    I'm biased? I was the biggest advocate of Locker draft day, and for about 450 days after that. How am I biased? Because I took time to watch him play in the NFL and form an opinion completely different from one I had from watching him at Dub-U? I'm a realist. I'm just pointing out what everyone who's anyone pointed out before we drafted him, he's inaccurate, struggles in the redzone, and can't win.

    BTW, 15/20 on mostly pitch and catch routes isn't that impressive. And 12/20 with 3 points is down right terrible drops or not.

    And those 2 drops killed the drive in FG range and also led to 2 missed field goals. Hence the 3 pts, which does suck but how do you put that on Locker? Mostly pitch and catch? I'm pretty sure Cincy had their 1st stringers out there for most of the time Locker was on the field and not all of his throws were check downs. It goes to show this is a team sport and more time than not too much credit or blame goes on the QB. This whole inaccuracy thing is blown so far out of portion its not even funny. Does the guy miss some throws? Yea he does but so does Brady, Manning, Brees and every NFL QB. Be realistic man...
