    Work ethic and mental ability can make a huge difference between players so I feel like the comparison was bogus. Yes they are a little similar, but lots of kids have been compared to Peyton manning and where are over half of them now. The difference is Peyton puts in the work and has the mental ability to run an offense. When Vince hears boos he runs home and gets his pistol and goes missing for days, when jake hears boos he goes to work the next day to fixes his mistakes. Does that sound similar at all?

    Locker's first pass today was a pick by griffin. (ball behind Washington on a crossing route.). He said "get that bad one over with early".

    Funny reply but it does bug me he was off target right off the bat. Hopefully he will improve where Vince didn't.

    "Locker got off to a shaky start. On his first pass attempt in 7-on-7 drills, he overthrew wide receiver Nate Washington. Safety Michael Griffin intercepted the floating football"

    (yesterday's report said "behind")

    To be fair, Vince was a black guy living in TN, he had that gun for if the KKK wanted Vince Young soup. It's only because of his idiot mother that anyone was thinking he would shoot himself. Yea he's very emotional, but he's not suicidal.

    That us such an ignorant comment I'm not going to waste my breathe. I'm saying that there is more to players than just physical ability. Locker is a much better QB than VY has or ever will be
