    I think VY and Locker are pretty close in their development stages from their first 2 seasons. And that's not a good thing for Locker.

    He makes a lot of the same mistakes VY made, throws into traffic, inaccuracy (more so for locker), can't read defenses (throws to first option, telegraphs passes), doesn't protect the football.

    But there's hope, VY came a long way since his first two seasons and hopefully locker can too because right now he's terrible.

    Making mistakes is fine, continually making the same mistakes isn't.


    You can be a brick shy of a load, well In Vince's case, he was a load shy of a brick.

    Jake gets better every week because he's bright, and a grown up.

    and no, Vince stayed the same for 5 years, thats why he's unemployed today.

    He stayed the same for 5 years? I don't know if we're thinking of the same Vince Young. Because the Vince Young I know could never have posted a 98.7 rating in his rookie season like he did in 2010.

    Dude if you believe Vince Young changed any from his freshman year in college til when he was kicked off the Titans, then yea we are talking about different Vince Youngs.

    He progressed some as a QB, but grew none as a man.

    He's a giant baby and always has been.

    Exactly his understanding of the playbook and the game improved but he never became an overall legit NFL QB. Having the skills and understanding the game is only half of it.

    Dude I didn't say anything about him as a man lol. I could care less, I was talking about how he and Locker compared to each other in terms of playing Quarterback.
