Going to be a very interesting season.

Watching Jake is akin to riding a rollercoaster.

Good play. Scary play. Bad play. Amazing play.

You really just don't know what you will get from down to down.

I agree code and it's pretty frustrating. I expected to see a little more especially since he's playing against second stringers. He is also going to get one of our WR killed!

Agree Code. Reminds me of young Favre every time I watch him.

If he was playing against starters tonight there would have been at least 2 picks. I'm expecting a very similar TD-Int ratio over the course of 16 games

I'm excited.

Awesome highs, terrifying lows.

He isn't going to be Tom Brady in his first year as a starter... I expect him to finally settle down into being a top 10 QB within the next 2 years.

Hell it took Eli 4 years before he finally got his game going... He's won two superbowls in the last 5 years

Bless me Father for I have sinned... I have to watch him the whole fourth quarter

I suspect Oilerman will point this out ... but another bizarre bit of coaching by Munchak ... unless Locker was hurt ... why not give him the chance at a 2:00 minute drill? Second time we passed on that and he probably could have used the seasoning.

It's BS, why play him for so long and take him out for the 2 min drill.

He clearly needs the reps. Just as clearly he needed the 2 minute drill.

He looks to wright alot. I think it's a bit much to expect kendall to beat jump balls. I expect him to look hard at Kenny when he gets back and that may force a pick or two. As the game gets slower for him towards the end of the season, this offense will be a lot of fun to watch,

Especially considering earlier in the week he specifically mentioned playing locker in a two minute scenario.

Unless they know he can do it so they're saving it for the regular season.

My expectations remain the same of him.

Anyone expecting him to be more than a rookie with an NFL education, needs to reduce their expectations a bit.

I noticed the same thing. Hass only played that 2:00 min drill and was out the rest of the game. It can't be a coincidence -- for whatever reason, it looks like the coaches are keeping the 1st team 2:00 drill under wraps in the preseason.

If it were up to me I'd trade Johnson for Peyton Hillis or Lagerette Blount straight up.

Went to the game tonight. Still ticks me off that as a season ticket holder I have to pay full price for that mess. But I digress ..

I turned to my son when Jake ran & fumbled the ball and said, "That is a picture of what this season is going to look like with Jake Locker."

He had 'em moving on the drive, made some nice throws, making a nice run & boom a bonehead play.

I thought he was more on target tonight and threw some nice passes in tight places. However, we haven't seen him consistently taking the team on long drives and finishing. Short field? Got it. 80 yards? Not so much.

He's fun to watch. Hope he gets better. It's gonna be fun, but frustrating year. Hopefully we win a few games along the way.

Oh, the decision to bring Hass in for the 2 minute was a head-scratcher.

:huh:

Aaaand this is why there was a QB battle... but I'm happy they went for the futures and not the short term.

Lockercoaster it is. I'm sure it will even out eventually.

In a lot of ways he is a rookie since there was no offseason in 2011. I just hope Kenny Britt is able to play some week 2 and give them another weapon on offense.
