  1. Not taht we've deserved to win any of them, but we should've won TEN and BAL. We gave those away, but LAR could've gone either way. We just some bad injury luck and had to rely on Eason. I mean, tough loss, but Wentz stays in, we could've finished them off. Even if we just didn't give away the two I mentioned, we're 4-2 and first in the division. But we've got to get some sort of healthy.
  2. Not that you expect much down to earth thinking on the radio, particularly from Mike Wells, but he was co-hosting with Bowen this morning and he was talking about how much Ballard botched the backup QB position because of his movement up and down the depth chart. Not to mention that Ballard said "Look, he's a 4th round pick, he's going to have to earn it" when asked after he was drafted and hasn't had a great thing to say about him since. To me, when it mattered, we had a serviceable backup when we needed it - Jacoby - and he did well when he was forced to start an entire season after Luck retired. After signing Rivers, we all knew we couldn't keep Jacoby at $20m as a backup and couldn't really resign him for what he wanted after the 2020 season so we drafted Eason. Had the talent, but needed to be coached up - what do you expect from a 4th rounder? ya know? and then we drafted Ehlinger in 2021 and signed Hundley and put him on the practice squad. Ehlinger goes on IR and once we get to see Eason, activate Hundley to the active roster because we've seen enough of Eason. Ballard will put him back on the PS if he clears waivers or maybe we don't. But these guys act like we're 2-4 because we cut Eason and Ballard has just completely mishandled the backup situation. Like, we're talking about a backup QB. Any team that has to put in their backup for considerable time is in a bad place. Let's not act like even serviceable backups like Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the norm when we draft 4th round and later QBs. Let's get a little bit of a grip on reality...
  3. Let's hold off with this one. Let's at least wait until whispers of JT being HOF worthy first.
  4. At least matter more than other less consequential kicks. I'm not saying he's the sole reason we lost, but damn, it's one of the bigger reasons for it.
  5. 296 yards and 4 touchdowns on the last 4 Ravens possessions (32 plays total). I don't care about record setting performances as much as I care about how much the defense just crumbled. That's 9.25 yards a play. Just putrid. They didn't even have 150 yards on 5 possessions. Force a punt, get a turnover. Do something other than let them march down the field like there's only 11 offensive players on the field and no one else.
  6. So we should expect flare ups in the future? Yes I can be prepared for that, hire another kicker. Unless this was the first time in Blankenship's medical history, then this was not something that should've caught the Colts off guard. That being the case, hire another kicker because you're basically (and to restate it once more) walking into a game with your pants around your ankles hoping for the best.
  7. The article I read said it was a flare up. That suggest he was injured prior to the game. So, again, should've hired another kicker while Blankenship heals.
  8. I don't care if he was injured or not. He either should've made it or we should've known better and hired someone off teh street until we could rely on Blankenship. You don't just waltz into a game with your pants down around your ankles and hope for the best.
  9. If I had one nitpick, I'd like to see him continue to improve his frequency pushing the ball down the field. His air yrd/attemp is steadily increasing, if you omit his gimp game vs the Titans. I think the more he can trust guys to win in contested catches, the more he will do that. But he's been at least as good as he was pre 2021. Not quite 2017, but we arent asking for that. Bang out the running game and Wentz can take advantage against Defensive looks that respect the run.
  10. I don't know how much I buy the stories that are coming out of htis book. I don't doubt that there was some turmoil in-house. Like, any married couple knows that arguments/fights are inevitable. It's going to happen. And this "marriage" involved 3 people. But more than that, the stories are comprised mainly of 3rd party accounts. We'll see, but I wouldn't ever expect Brady, Belichick or Kraft to corroborate the stories even if true.
  11. Gaaaah. So many key players are hurt. I'm over it. Maybe we're still 0-3 with everyone healthy, but it really just makes the losses feel even worse.
  12. What is it with everyone's ankles this year? Seems like every ankle just decided to go chickenblank this year.
  13. This Eason thing is so overblown. And I'm going to get this out of the way first, no, I'm not advocating leaving Wentz in, aggravating his injury or other wise playing him when he's incapable of being ineffective. But players play hurt all the time and if the docs clear him to play and he's 75% and wants to play, can play and can be effective (read more effective than his backup). Play him. But as far as Eason goes, Eason being 3rd string tells me one of two things. Either, Reich believed Eason's time in week 2 made him rethink where Eason was in his development or Hundley right now is more ready than Eason. Big whoop. We're still talking about Day 3 QBs. Do we really want to just throw these guys out there "just to see" if he's good enough? That's insane to me and I think framing the backup QB situation that way would lose you your job if you were coaching that way. Part of me thinks that much of this narrative is just something that people say to hide the true motive of wanting to keep our first round next year and lose our way into a high draft pick.
