We all saw the way Pep got production & usage out of our backs. Especially Bradshaw & even Trent. If he could get Trent touches & production, I assure you that Mack would have gotten more than 2 carries under Pep and he would have been used effectively out of the backfield too. Plus, I think he would have gotten another tight end some touches with Doyle struggling...
Chud is just an extension of Chuck’s incompetence. Same for Monachino. If Irsay doesn’t allow Ballard to clean house, then it’s time for him to sell the team to Peyton &/or others because the incompetence would have spread too far if they are retained again. The guy is just not HC material. We drafted a damn Rolls Royce in Luck & gave the keys to an incompetent fool who clearly has no business behind the wheel.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Luck’s family didn’t pull a power move & say we’re not allowing Andrew to come back until he’s surrounded by competent coaches... Has to be hard for a guy with NFL experience to see his son’s career being wasted because of incompetence... If things keep trending like they have been, I see no reason to bring Luck back this year.
Just hire a new HC soon in the offseason & get Luck the playbook early so he can start learning the new system.
