    You'd def know more then me if you live there. But there is talent on that roster and just as importantly coaches who cater to their players.

    With the Lock comment, perhaps Shanahan and Co. would have had him in a better system resulting in better performances and more wins.... Then again, Lock was awful last year so, I wouldn't know...

    Look a kid can either play or he cant. Sitting him is non sense. The only way for the game to slow down for a young QB is to get playing time. Not to sit on a bench and hold a clip board. Rodgers would have be just as well off if not better had he started from day 1!

    Imagine how good Vince would have been have someone was fully committed to his style of play and putting him in a system that fitted him best!

    Yeah, there was SOME talent on the roster, we arguably had a lot more though. Regardless of that they had to deal with a bunch of injuries. Their secondary was beat up all year long and teams really passed at will on them. They didn't have Adam Carriker or Brian Orakpo on defense.

    Don't forget they were 3-6 and Shanahan was talking about next season before RG3 started putting the team on his back. That wasn't a good team, just a great Quarterback.

    Why you end every single one of your posts with an exclamation point baffles me..

    Lets say next season Locker does fail but Fitzpatrick comes in and plays great and is much better than Locker what is the next move in 2014?

    does the team move on from Locker and make Fitz the starter?

    does the team keep both giving Locker another shot in 2014?

    does the team keep Fitz but draft another QB in the early rounds of the 2014 draft?

    I would say if Locker fails enough for Fitz to come in and Fitz comes in and does "great", then Locker is done. We'll follow-up with taking a 1st or 2nd round QB, letting Fitz start another year (maybe two) and give the rookie the key to the team.

    Hopefully, this time it doesn't fail like VY & Locker.
    Double Hopefully, we don't have to worry abou this scenario.

    My plan will be to end my life so I don't have to go through another QB rebuild.
