Does anyone look at our roster? If so maybe you can see pretty much the same thing... Ballard has done a great job! We have a great 53 man roster right? Real play makers. Young and learning everyday and looking better every week. Now take a look at our daily list of guys that can't practice or play the next game. Man... what a list! We have had 5, 7 or maybe 8 guys on there all season. Some of the best play makers from our roster. No matter if they was on the roster last year or who picked them, it was Ballard that didn't trade, waiver or cut them. This is Ballard's team as far as I'm concerned.
Now with that being said, I read a lot of this forum, and no matter what the topic, There is always a Pagano debate and there is alway a sit luck even if healthy debate.
As far as Chuck Pagano... well it would be nice if he could use the whole 53 man roster and show off what Ballard has given him. There will always be some head-scathing calls from the sidelines, we all know that... is there better coaches out there? yes there is, there is also worse... he is what we have this year plain and simple. It's his job on the line not mine. I hope he does a good enough job to keep it to be honest. Because I'm still hoping for a good season, yes even after going 1-2. Our guys are healing and getting better every week, I think if Pagano had the whole roster to work with, there might be less debate??
Sit a healthy Andrew Luck...
No way, never, no how!! Everyone that wants to sit a healthy Luck might be crazy or jus not thinking right. You want all 52 of our other players to go out there and do the best job, busting their *'s while there fearless leader sits on the bench so he won't get hurt?? You want Andrew healthy for next year? So do I!! What about this year?? I want him on the field with the other 52 guys (some of these guys won't be here next year) and do what he does best, play football! I'm more of a let's see what we can get done this year and worry about next year, next year..
I have great hopes for Ballards decision making, if he wants to keep Pagano or let him go.. I'm excited to see how he does next free agency and how he drafts. Ballard is the one I'm behind... I'm not giving up on this year! I think we'll be even better next year.
