Locker’s Passer Rating in Good Company Through Six Starts

Posted by Gary Glenn on November 29, 2012 – 12:49 pm

Second-year quarterback Jake Locker has recorded six career starts — all coming this season after appearing in five contests as a rookie backup to Matt Hasselbeck.

In his six starts, he has completed 99 of 167 passes for 1,164 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions, computing to a passer rating of 84.5.

Locker has a chance to become the fifth quarterback in franchise history to record a passer rating of 80.0 or greater in their first seven starts with the club. He would join Billy Volek (100.4), Steve McNair (92.6), Hasselbeck (89.2) and Chris Chandler (88.0) on the list. Locker would be the first of that group to accomplish the feat within his first two NFL seasons.

Highest passer rating through a quarterback’s first seven starts, franchise history:

100.4 – Billy Volek (2003-04)
92.6 – Steve McNair (1995-97)
89.2 – Matt Hasselbeck (2011)
88.0 – Chris Chandler (1995)
84.5 – Jake Locker (2012 – through 6 starts)

    Lockers passer rating wont get very much higher then that with all the dropped passes the recievers let bounce of their hands/chests. Locker is a awsome QB now we need a team to help him win games. Our secondary is horrible without Finnegan, and the few games McCarthy plays he’s amazing… we just dont know when he’s going to get hurt agin. Tach Britt/Washington/Cook how to catvh and we should be alright.

    I like Jake Locker but as I watch him, he seems to have a problem looking over the offensive line. Im not sure if the guy is too short an cant see or he just not taking his time when he drop back for a pass. Again I really like this guy but sometimes I wonder about his play. I understand this is his 2nd year but the NFL has change, with the new QBs coming out. These guys are breaking records, taking their team to the playoffs.. Their is No excuss for our 2nd year QB.
