UPDATE: Audio Of Millen Breaking Down Locker vs. Nebraska

As discussed during the live chat of the draft's first round, here's Bob Condotta's story in the Seattle Times on Hugh Millen's review of Jake Locker's 4-for-20, 71-yard game against Nebraska, a game where Millen said Locker made more good plays than bad (though he conceded the game was "still a poor day").

EDIT: Found the audio link! Here's Millen's appearance on Ian Furness's show on KJR AM radio in Seattle from last September. It's a half-hour of a former NFL quarterback doing a throw-by-throw breakdown of another QB's performance, and well worth the listen if you've got a half-hour.

"Nebraska was, for eight straigt play, in cover-2 man-under..."

Oh HUGH Millen? Nevermind then.

If the podcast is still available on the radio station site somewhere (I didn't find it in 20 seconds last night), it's worth a download and a listen if only to hear a former QB break down actual QB decisions in a much more hardcore way than "that's the kind of thing you expect a great QB like Player X to do."

I assumed it was going to be Matt Millen actually breaking a locker.

Did a bit of investigative journalism and tracked down the actual podcast (a lot harder than it sounds with the terrible search function on the radio station web site):

And of course, it doesn't work outside the US. Stupid licensing restrictions.

Works fine for me in the UK! Weird...

Huh. Well, I'm in the Netherlands. Maybe they've got licensing deals in place with the UK.

Good old Hugh Millen. Brings me back to the Pats glory days.

Oh yeah, the Pats glory days. We haven't seen many of them recently.
