    Its sad that everytime we drop back to pass Im instantly worried. Locker hasn't shown me anything in his career that's he's going to be our franchise QB. Utterly disappointed and looks like another wasted (early) 1st rounder. Even Weeden/Wilson look better than Locker. Cmon Locker!

    Really? Nothing, in the entire 6 games of his career?

    I was really high on Locker, but I really think his poor performances are results of the lack of talent around him. The oline is a shell of it's former self, Cook seems to be trying like half the time, Nate's good for a crazy catch every now and then but then he drops the easy ones, etc. The playcalling seems to have been pretty crappy as well. I turned the game off around halftime and never watched anymore of it, because I knew the team wasn't going to win and watching them try and play a team like the Texans is laughable. That being said about Locker's teammates, his accuracy was the biggest knock on him coming out of Washington and that is HUGE for a qb, I just really hope he can get things turned around.

    So he didn't impress you in the Falcons, Saints, and Lions games? Seriously?

    Granted the Lions game was his only complete performance, as the other two were only a quarter or a half.

    How can you blame Locker?

    I couldn't see the game today I was working, but as always I was listening on the radio. I lost track of how many times Wycheck said guys dropped passes. What do you expect him to do? He can't win it all by himself. Guys are going to have to hold on to the ball. Washington, as much as I like him really pisses me off at times. He can make a catch with 11 guys all over him but if hes by himself running down the field in the open hes gonna drop it.
    :swear:

    Overall this team is pretty young and their going to get better. If our wide outs had made some of the catches they dropped, some of the dumb penalties (Mathews) had been controlled we would have been in this game.

    Mathews last penalty really should not have been called.

    Our WRs and TEs really gotta catch the balls.

    I agree that there were alot of drops, but there were plenty of bad passes as well. At one point we had, what, 7 straight incomplete passes? Those consecutive incompletions were largely uninterrupted by a run play as well, so I do not think our problem here is running the ball too much (as I think I read someone claim earlier). Some of those passes were way off....many of them behind the receiver, and a few tipped at the line (after the first couple one would expect an adjustment for that as well).

    This performance is not all on Locker, but he definitely needs some work. Hopefully this is something that Tom Moore can work out with him in during the offseason. Locker's problem is not effort, attitude, or aptitude (he appears to be going through his progressions pretty quickly)...it is purely accuracy at this point IMO.

    Consistency. I want consistency. I don't blame Locker for the loss, i'm simply saying.. I was extremly high on the guy, and now i'm a little iffy. Will our coordinators cripple him, like what happened to Bradford?
