There have been a lot talk here lately about attitude. That is just the nature of the offseason. There aren't any real stories, so we spend our time talking about things that probably really don't matter. That is just what the obsession with NFL football has done to us.
You probably already heard, but yesterday Kendall Wright injured his shoulder diving for a pass. The injury doesn't appear to be serious. Gramsey and I saw him at the Mike Munchak charity bowling event last night and he didn't appear to be favoring the shoulder too much.
Anyway, the pass where Walker got injured was thrown by Jake Locker, and apparently it wasn't a very good throw. Here is what Locker had to say about the play after practice according to Jim Wyatt:
"That’s my fault. I always hate to see a guy get injured trying to make a play. He made a great effort at it, and I hope it’s nothing serious."Paul Kuharsky has a good piece today titled " On insulated QBs and self-criticism." The main point of the article is that Locker is not going to be like a certain quarterback that was here before. He is going to be accountable for everything that he does on the field. You have to like that.
Now that doesn't guarantee that he is going to be the franchise quarterback that we all hope he will be, but you don't see many guys how end up bring franchise quarterbacks that aren't accountable.
