Clearly Ballard is working to win now. Pittman and Taylor will help us in the near term. They both seem NFL ready, or close to it, and will take the pressure off of Rivers. Even trading #13 for Buckner plays into that win now mindset.
Taylor will certain jack up our running game and Pittman is the big body receiver that is well suited for quick routes and the possession game, as well as competing on 50/50 balls.
Consider the Burton and Nix additions, along with one of the best o-lines in the league, and you can see how they want to bully the opposing defenses. It seems the offense is being designed so that Rivers doesn’t have to carry the offense on his physicals skills, but instead play smart, consistent and make the right decisions by letting the supporting cast do there thing.
Very excited. Hope the season happens.
