    If for some reason Locker doesn't play well i wonder how long they'll keep him in as starter before they throw Fitzpatrick in.The reason i ask this is knowing how much the coaches are on the hot seat i don't think they would let him play too many games before they see what the other player can do.

    Knowing how well we improved the line and got more weapons it seems like between Locker and Fitzpatrick that one of those QB's will make their case as the better player.

    There really shouldn't be any excuses for either one because of all the improvements made.

    Frankly, Munch's future is tied with Locker. If Locker is terrible we'll be in a hole early, probably deep enough to where we can't get out and make the playoffs. Munch sinks or swims with Locker.

    Fitzpatrick has never lead an NFL team to a winning record, so I think it's Locker or bust.

    Bridgewater or Manziel right? I'd hope we are then in an opportunity to one of them.

    Locker has played behind a shoddy oline and has had zilch time to even get comfortable. The modern fast food NFL fan wants a qb do be proven way to fast and honestly it has become a detriment to the game. In Jake I trust if given a oline(now have) and Wr's who can catch damn ball. CJ should be fine and Locker is mobile so stop with qb draft crap talk.

    With the O-Line improvements he should do fine. It all depends on the play calling though.

    I think Locker will be fine.


    If anything, we should've learned from the VY expirement that accuracy CAN be improved. Vince went from a passer with average to below average accuracy, to being pretty damn accurate in his 3rd and 4th years.

    Locker should have lots of time this season and lots of weapons to throw too. He'll be fine. And unlike VY, he won't have the off-the field issues which will shorten his career.

    I'm not too worried about Locker.

    VY was never accurate. Just because the receiver caught it doesn't mean it was an accurate pass. He gave WR's no chance to get yac half the time.

    He had the 2nd highest QB Rating his last year here before the injury. No other argument needed.
