    Yeah, you don't know what you're talking about. I already knew that though.

    Cam padded his stats against some of the worst defenses in the league towards the end of the season. Nine TDs with 11 turnovers over the first half the season and 17 TDs with four turnovers over the second half. Of course he played against Oakland, New Orleans, KC, San Diego, Philly, and Denver over the second half of the season.

    Our GM said they would have taken Locker #1 overall, over Cam. Give the kid some time, jeez.

    lol, most/all QBs play worse against better competition. Locker couldn't put up those stats against College teams. He blows.

    Newton and Kaepernick don't.

    Eh?

    I'd expect him to play well more than half the time...

    Kaepernick = efficient and won games in college.
    Locker = inconsistent and didn't really win in college.

    Locker is a big tease. It has been going on for 6 years now.

    I'd certainly take him over Locker. I will hold judgement over picking Colin over Cam, just yet.

    If you put Kaep on the Titans and Locker on the Titans then I guarantee that you'd still be making this topic in reverse. Locker had a separated shoulder, a bad OL, an inconsistent running game, and a worse receiving core. Kaep is a baller but I don't believe that the gap between him and Locker is as big as statistics and game tape appear.

    Also, Vince Young, Kevin Dyson, and Andre Woolfork are all way worse decisions then Locker will ever be.

    I think the first eight DCs had him figured out pretty well. You know, when they held the Panthers to 17.6 points per game. Then he started playing shitty teams and they scored 26 points per game.

    Amazing how he torched the defenses no one else struggled with.
