Why because he fumbled? Get rid of Gore too then.

Completely different situation.  Gore has been very good all year.  Whalen has been very meh.  Add in his completely bonehead move last week to snap the ball on that 4th down play, and his fumble there.  It's not like he's a super explosive returner who has a chance to score anytime he gets the ball.

 

A minute and a half into the 2nd quarter and they score 14 points

They really are. I honestly think they have severely hindered Luck as well. He does not look right at all.

With what he's had to deal with his first three years... They've done everything they could to ruin him.

Luck has seriously looked bad from the first game. I put full blame on the coaching staff. You have to teach and coach your players up. You have to put them in plays to have the most success for their players. I don't see that happening

Whalen is a good WR.  He should not be returning kicks.  He's not really fast enough anyway.

You're right it is different Whalen fumbled when he was hit, Gore fumbled at the goal line untouched.

    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...  
    • You give him the same weapons as Watson had, he will. 
    • This is why drafting a QB/Eason panning out would be ideal for when this happens again. I have stated I'm all for Stafford, but it further restricts you.    We will have about $85 million  committed to Buckner($21 mill), Leonard($19 mill), Nelson($19 mill), Kelley($11 mill), & B. Smith($15 mill) alone after next season.    The issue with having so much talent is eventually you have to get rid of some. I wouldn't be surprised if we trade a star in a few years because we can't afford to pay them(like the 49ers) for a high draft pick.   
    • I meant it's not gonna work as easily in college. Hand fighting and levrage matter more which Basham has. That was my point.
