You realize he leads the league in touchdown passes of 60 +yards right

Because that's the stat we should count on...he also has a lot of downfield interceptions.  Sorry, you can have that stat, but outside 10 yards, he's not very good.

 

He needs a jailbreak play.

It's not a stat we can count on, but it's a stat that hasn't showed up as of late.  There's sure as S$$$ no reason not to try a deep ball when he IS a good deep passer.  The guy has an arm.

Quincy Wilson needs some serious conditioning, being outrun by Thomas. Could be because it’s his first experience in a Thursday game, but still. The Broncos played Sunday too. 

Broncos didnt play in 6 inches of snow..all of our regulars may tire in the second half

But like I said, he needs a jailbreak type of play when after it's broken down, guys are working  up field. Just because he last long enough to get the ball downfield doesn't make him a good QB given how often he is sacked holding the ball too long. I dunno, I'm jaded watching the guy. Whatever his deep pass QB rating is, it doesn't justify his being on the field in my eyes. I know he's a backup, but he's not a guy that really wins you games. His deep ball is nowhere to be found it seems late in games when we need a long drive.

Plus add in some vintage Brock to beat us at the end...

 

Yeah thats why I am not too confident yet we win this game. Brock could morph into Brock Brady later.......

    • Yeah... the newer analytics, if you trust them, by companies like PFF suggest the most valuable positions are the ones most tightly linked to the passing game are the ones that are most valuable ones - meaning, on offense - QB, WR... OT(because they are the hardest OL positions, a lot of one on one pass-protection work) and on defense - CB, EDGE pass-rushers, S... DTs can be valuable too, but they need to have considerable pass-rush production and most of them don't - because the inside is clogged and players get double teamed more easily, etc. The Aaron Donalds of the world are very very rare. I wonder how Buckner grades in their WAR system. He's one of the best interior rushers in the league, but still probably doesn't rank very high when you include all the other positions on the field. I know Aaron Donald' value in their system was about the same as that of an average QB. Just an illustration of how important the QB position is - an average to below average QB gives you the same value as the best interior rusher of this generation. 
    • I would just go with some under the radar guy on a bargain contract... those seem to be the types Ballard goes for. Or someone who was released before FA starts(so it wouldn't count towards compensatory picks formula).   So... I will wait for the cuts to start and pick one of those then... 
    • If the OT class sucked i would be ok with this but it doesn't    Hope we get LT in draft
    • I'm not gonna make excuses for Wentz, but everyone leads in different ways. Peyton was demanding, while Andrew was more nonchalant and dad like. 
    • About 1 hour 21 min into this 2 former teammates of Carson talk about him (FYI, there are a few curse words throughout the podcast):  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/malcolm-jenkins-on-activism-saints-eagles-trash-talking/id1485277290?i=1000510312176   They say he's not a locker room cancer.  He's a nice guy.  He didn't have to be a leader early in Philly - Jenkins says "his rookie year, we just asked him to be a rookie QB rather than be a leader..." essentially they had enough vet leaders.  Chris Long says he never  thought of Wentz as a jerk, but his rookie year and his MVP level year, he never thought about Carson being a leader, just thought "this QB is very good" and essentially that the team of veteran guys and looking back the only thing he could think is Wentz could reach out to guys across the whole team, rather than just producing well on field... says Nick Foles not a great QB, but Foles had a magnetism about him that made him appear like the leader of that SB team when Carson went down.
