Only the best: Jake Locker was fantastic in the first quarter of the season

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

Jake Locker has been "only the best" in the first 4 games of the season.

Part of the reason that the injury to Jake Locker sucks so much is because of how well he was playing.  There were still some accuracy issues from time to time, but he had drastically improved in pretty much every aspect of his game.  His progress is very encouraging for his future.

This series is only the best, and I am dedicating it to Locker's start.  He was on pace to throw for more than 3,000 yards (if you project a few more yards had he not gotten hurt Sunday) with 24 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.  Obviously that last number would be impossible to sustain, but it is still so very impressive that he was able to make it through the first quarter of the season without throwing a pick- against some really good defenses.

Locker didn't just do it being a game manager either.  He put the team on his back against the Chargers, and that game on Sunday was on pace to be his best ever.

Get well soon, Jake!  We are all excited to see what the rest of the season has in store for you.
