Time to Tank for Lawrence

Tanking seems a desperation strategy, so no.

Tanking is what you do when you have no idea how to manage an NFL roster.  Competent organizations are defined as the organizations that don't resort to tanking as a primary operational strategy.

Those two examples are used by people to support the contention that NE players have an undeserved attraction.  I doubt San Fran would give Garropolo that contract today.

Not New England's fault that Garoppolo got exposed to the same problems Andrew Luck had here.

 

Here's the bottom line for me about Garoppolo.  He got moved to a terrible organization and then while trying to bodily manhandle that organization to relevance, got hurt because his entire team quit on a play and forced him to play 1 against 11.

 

 

Look at the "effort" from his teammates on that play.  The entire offensive line gives up and starts WALKING despite the fact that the LG and LT could easily get back into the play if they hustled downfield. 

 

Two downfield guys who could have thrown blocks to keep their QB upright checked out at the last second, stopped running and let him get hurt. 

 

With play like that, you can't hang the injury on Jimmy G.  The miracle is that it didn't happen sooner.

 

If I was coaching that game I would have immediately benched the entire offensive line plus #15 nd #11.  That whole play disgusts me as a football fan.  The lack of effort that resulted in that injury is absolutely staggering to behold.

2 years away tho unfortunately. 

Maybe by then Luck decides to unretire and Ballard up and trades him in a package for the first pick in 2021 to draft Lawrence.

    • He can have all the heart he wants, but at the end of the day, what matters is his performance.    About the OP, it's nice to see all the stats in one post. If JB could just turn up a notch in terms of YPA, we would've a very nice offense, even with this group of WR.   As a matter of curiosity, why didn't you used the PIT and MIA stats?
    • I traded the 49ers D for Alshon Jeffrey and kept just Ravens D and Eagles D, better usage of my bench and roster, I felt.
    • I think it's going to be one of the most interesting offseasons of the past years.  It's fun to think and talk about all the scenarios that could happen. 
    • Cain’s main issues with the Colts were injuries.   Whatever baggage he had that made him slip to the 6th round were not brought here to the Colts.    To the best of my knowledge there are no negative stories about Cain while in Indianapolis.   Except injuries.   He wasn’t healthy enough, long enough to get polished enough to co tribute much.   But he has still has a ceiling.  His future is still viable if he can stay healthy for an extended period of time.  But in every interview I ever saw, Ballard spoke highly of Cain.  Very highly.    Maybe it’s with Pittsburgh, maybe he returns to the Colts someday.   I wish the kid well. 
    • I hear you, it's a coin flip.  I'm feeling ok about it though.   I've been wrong in the past (so often) but despite "playing down to our competition" we've been solid in our divisional games this year, undefeated in fact.  Seems like they get up for these.  Frank will have them ready.   Wish it was at LOS, but we've performed well in Houston in the past and I think TY will play, you just put him in a uni and we're already in their head.   Both teams are beat up so that's a wash.  Both on a short week so that's a wash.   From a colts perspective,  I think this is Jacobys coming out party.  We want national attention for obi-wan jacoby, this is his chance.  They're gonna try to make him beat them thru the air and I know he can.  Unlike last time most of the country is gonna be watching.  Say what you want about Brissett but he doesnt shrink under the big lights.   Plus our d has been sneaky solid for awhile now......gonna be close but I like our chances..........
