Locker has been playing like a franchise QB and we all know that to have a long run of success you have to have a franchise QB. Locker is showing he is a leader who is willing to battle to get back on the field. We all know how important that was during the Mac9 era. Here are the numbers so far... Total QBR 67.8 6th best in the league passer ranking 97.1 9th best in the league for QBs who have played most of the games completion % 61.8% TD:INT 8:1 All of those stats are greatly improved from last year. The best part is that these numbers were not put up against a bunch of weak defenses. In the five games Locker has played we have faced 4 defenses ranked in the top 8 for total defense. Only the Bolts defense is in the bottom half of the league. If you had told me before the season that Locker would have those numbers against the defenses that we have faced i would have been ecstatic. Thus the impetus for this thread. If Locker continues to perform like he has in the 5 games he has played in this year then we have ourselves a franchise QB.
