That's the sad part in all of this.
Talented QBs like Luck are rare. So when you have one they give you a huge advantage. Grigson and Pagano have wasted it. Without Reggie making big plays, without Robert Mathis getting double digit sacks, without the other 3 teams in the AFC South among the bottom 5 in record and QB talent, Grigson and Pagano are exposed.
I'm not saying the contract would have likely protected such a demonstration; just saying he had a contract and was not an at-will employee.
Professional sports law is mostly a mix of antitrust law, labor law, and contracts law. I'm not an agent, it's not my field, but I have seen plenty of pro sports contracts and they're usually pretty favorable to the ownership but have gotten much more player-friendly in recent years thanks to organized collective bargaining power on behalf of the athletes.
Injuries aside, which is a big problem of course, I'm suspect of these coaches and don't fully trust they even know where to play who.
That's another reason I think we've played poorly in general.
I was also a fan of Reitz at LG.
