Players ALWAYS want to come back. That’s why you have doctors and coaches to look out for their best interests. If I recall right Jacoby said he felt like he could have played the Miami game. Again players always feel that way. TY also said he felt like he could have played before the Texans game but as we saw in the Texans game he had no business being out there. Players are the worst people to judge on when they can play because their fault position is I can play.
No. Reich sabotaged the season because he wanted another QB to play (like many on this board). But he couldn't pull him with a 5-2 record. The injury opened the door. Then Hoyer played well. So he gave him another shot.
Let's say Hoyer throws for 350 & 4td's vs the Dolphins. I think Frank would have more of a case to say Hoyer provides us a better chance at winning because he executes the offense the way I like. At the worst, he'd be able to have a very short leash on JB. But Hoyer scuttled those plans. And IMO Frank cost us this season by even entertaining the thought.
Would Frank have sat Luck the rest of that game & the next without even getting an x-ray or anything?
