Quarterback Play

Is Jake Locker capable of operating an offense? He may not face an easier test than when he goes up against a Chargers defensive backfield that surrenders an NFL-worst 370 passing yards per game. While Matt Schaub and a Chip Kelly offense can do that to teams, Locker has a chance to silence some doubters during the home-opener.

REALITY: Locker passed that test. What was most impressive about his performance was how he handled the blitz: 10-of-14 for 181 yards with a 137.5 quarterback rating. A very encouraging performance from the third-year quarterback.
