It was noted here a few days ago that Jake Locker says he feels a lot more comfortable with Washington's playbook this spring, which or course is what should be expected of a quarterback entering his second year as a starter and third in the program.
So are UW coaches feeling more comfortable with Locker's knowledge of the playbook as Husky coach Tyrone Willingham said the other day that there will be increased opportunities for him to audible this season.
"There are going to be some things in our system that will have a great deal of flexibility and other times things that kind of lock him in,'' Willingham said, "But with his experience, he gets better and better every day so we will have the ability to allow him to expand at certain times.''
Locker didn't do much calling of audibles last season but the ability to call a few more should obviously give the Huskies some better options this season. Coaches often say that is one of the biggest values of having an experienced quarterback is the ability to get out of bad plays at the line of scrimmage. Sounds like that could be something else that Locker does better this season.
