    Really DW? I wholeheartedly agree with you about Nate, the guy is a number 2 receiver at best, and in the limelight of his career. He is, and always has been, inconsistent.

    But Locker not being a franchise QB, I can't get on board with that at all. Luck has had double the starts of Locker at this point for gods sake. He's had a shortened off season last year and he's been injured this season as we know. Not to mention his 'mentor' is/was Chris friggin' Palmer. CP is an awful play caller are we to put that on Jake too? When little old me can predict our plays 80% of the time you know his play calling is far too predictable. Look judging Jake as good or bad at this point so early in his career is totally unfair and unrealistic.

    palmer ends up being the goat.

    He was undoubtedly part of the problem.. but it's harder to pick out what ISN'T a part of the problem at this point.

    Not a good coordinator, which we knew coming in.. firstly, look at the people who gave him that power, then point fingers at the coordinators.

    What gets me about palmer is basically we are/were running the run and shoot. There is a Reason that offense has not been run in the nfl for years. Cj is not that kind of back and Hassle sure not that kind of qb. Not sure locker is, but it just did not fit the personel.

    That seems to be the issue, not really that hard to fix actually. IDK what was wrong with Palmer other than he was old and only did things one way. This gives me hope cause all along I've thought we had a nice group of players on offense.

    Let's see if Loggains can get the best out of them.

    It is too soon to say whether or not Jake is a franchise QB. Deuce Wayne doesn't know what Jake is or isn't.

    Yea locker isn't showing the Gabbert syndrome so there's still hope. DW just trolling like normal.

    This is a great point. I'm sure Palmer looks at the team and says to him self, "I'm clearly not the only problem this team has". Yet somebody needs to be made an example of, to put people on notice. Bud came out and said things need to change, or people will be moved. Well they lost to the 1-9 Jags, and someone was made an example of.

    Frankly I'm glad Palmer was the first to get the axe. The D has seemed to improve, even if only marginally. I was getting annoyed watching the D, but Gray has started to run some blitzes, and has become less frustrating to watch.

    The O on the other hand, I've hated the play calling all year. I watch other teams pick up 15-20 yards on screens, yet can't remember the last time I saw us run one. And the outside screens to Wright just haven't been working. I haven't been a fan of the O play calling, I'm hoping the qb coach focuses more on the air attack.

    Never trust someone who ends their sentences with prepositions.
