To be fair, Vinny was obviously not retiring and most people didn’t want him to retire anywhere but here and were hoping he’d retire after one more good year. Also, even though he regressed towards the end of the year, it did not at all look like he would regress this much. A lot of people also gave him a pass because that KC game was garbage for everyone on the team, and it was snowing.
Not making excuses, just providing reasoning
After reading this it sounds like Adam has no intention of retiring. He is pretty much daring Ballard to do it. Reich is pretty much buying time with his comments. He has pulled back from his total endorsement. He stated there have been no discussions about Adam between Chris and him. I interpret that as the game just ended and we haven't had a chance to sit down to review the game and everyones performance. Ballard has a huge problem on his hands. And of his own doing. Kickers miss field goals but extra points can change strategy and play calling. I have a pretty good idea what BB would do here. Ballard, on the other hand, is in new territory. Adam is going to force him to make a decision. All eyes will be on our nice guy GM.
