1. The Debut of Jake Locker.
He got some work with the second team, and generally had an encouraging debut. The dropped snap was a disappointing, but not too surprising given his lack of practice with Kevin Matthews. What was more positive was that he kept his eyes downfield and noticed Chris Cook's coverage lapse leaving Figurs open and hit him for the score. I'm not sure if the big miss on the pass for Mariani was inaccuracy or VY/Brandon Jones-style misreading. I didn't see much eye movement to manipulate defenses, but that's sort of an advanced skill anyway. His eyes seemed, however, to be a pretty good guide as to where he was going with the ball. None too surprising, even, and something that often comes in time.
2. The Interior of the Offensive Line
To be honest, pretty much all of the early running was to the tackles and outside, so I didn't get a good grasp on how this changed, if at all. I had Harris with a couple good blocks, one on the first throwback screen to Hall and one to get the seal on a carry by Harper on Locker's first drive. I also had Scott with a couple linebacker blocks, one each on both the first and second drives. Amano I had down once, for a block on DT Remi Ayodele, who's the sort of big run-stuffer he's struggled with at times in the past.
