    I wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole. You aren't alone.

    The couple of times I've seen Locker play, I was not that thrilled.

    But what happens is that the hype starts, and now that there are 3,000 bloggers out there - many of whom have neither knowledge nor experience - 1,000 of them will hype the guy in order to look like they are on to something.

    Then, the honks at sports radio get a hold of it and before you know it, Jake Locker is highly touted.

    i know that this happened in Buffalo early in the season - the "football experts" were saying that the Bills had to lose games to guarantee the #1 pick to draft locker. After a couple of televised stinkers, the name "Locker" was changed to "Luck".

    Dan LeFevour has the same body type as him, and had way better stats, and look where he is now. Locker just gets more attention since he's in a BCS conference.
    If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner. You know what a winner is? A winner is somebody who has given his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can, who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn't mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means that they've given it their best. That's a winner.”
