I think Ballard will ultimately be judged on what he does or doesn’t do this off-season. Namely at the QB position. Most give him a pass right now because there wasn’t much he could do two weeks before the season at that position beyond what he’s done. This off-season he has to find “the guy” rather it’s Jacoby or someone else. If he’s right he’s going to be praised. If he’s wrong it will probably ultimately lead to him being fired.
