SBN's Washington blog, UW Dawg Pound, has their take up on Jake Locker's decision to return for his senior season and forgo highly likely first-pick money in the process:
What is comes down to is Jake wants to finish what he came to Washington for and that is to lead the program backs to depths it has sunk to over the last decade. The level of coaching he received this season from the new staff was also a huge factor.
Jake raised his passing percentage nearly ten points this season while barely scratching the true potential he has to work with. Give Jake another year with Sarkisian and he is going to be ready to come in and lead an NFL team and not just draw a huge paycheck and hold a clipboard.
What they're leaving out, of course, is the added weight of common sense to this choice, which is to say that Jake Locker really, really doesn't want to be a St. Louis Ram. Hard to fault him there.
