Proved to be a starter?
i like him as our back up, i'm glad he's here, but he beat 2 winless teams that are worse than us. And we BARELY beat them.
i know its not all on him, but his play in 2nd halfs (after adjustments) is under-par. At least now anyway.
for almost 20 years we havent had any quality at back-up. Thru the manning and luck years. Now we have one (i think) , and some wanna trade him? I wouldnt. It could take another 20 to find one and we now know how important they can be. Just my opinion.
I think "choke" is one of most over used words in sports. Typically by people who love sports but don't know sports very well.
I've never thought we've been choking away games. I don't think we're very talented and over the course of a 60 minute game the better team will typically win. That's reality in the NFL.
We we are hugely under-manned and that will show up in the 2nd half. We still don't have many playmakers, difference makers and in the NFL that is typically the difference between winning and losing.
We've gone from being old and slow to being young, but inexperienced. Ballard said when he was hired this would not be a one-year fix, and that's what you're seeing on the field.
This team isn't choking... it's just not good enough. Not yet at least...
i should mention this is an informed opinion but it’s still an opinion but I think it’s realistic.
I too think he would fetch a 1st rounder from someone. The question is if Ballard wants to trade a quality backup before Luck is back fully healthy with a quality OL protecting him first. My guess is no.
Maybe she just thinks people from a certain area are from New Orleans....or maybe because they went to private school.....but more likely she just knows Peyton played at Tennessee and yes is clearly clueless. Who knows but she sounds like a few posters on this board...reasoning with her would be a lost cause.
