the term 'circus catch' usually means inaccurate pass compensated by good play by the wr.
I think Locker will end up like Kyle Boller.
But meh, I could be wrong.
Locker's accuracy only wanders when he gets too into the "**** is hitting the fan" mindset the way it does with jay Cutler some games. Now Locker isn't playing behind that embarrassment to the sport, that is the chicago bear's OL, but he's also a first year QB. I think he's got the moxy to learn to focus a little bit more on his mechanics and a little less on needing to run for his life, he's not at Washington anymore. Now I'm not completely sold that he will make good on his abilities and continue to settle down, but I think there's a good chance he does with what he has to work with in Tennessee, which would lead to a very good QB.
BTW Ryan Tannenhill should be on this list. I am a believer in that kid. Kinda like the JPP of QBs he's just got remarkable natural talent and surprisingly good understanding of how to use them for someone so completely inexperienced and under-prepared.
