The Luck Affect

not singing ebron isnt the same as tanking.  we have lots of other receivers, the team tied a record for most receivers to catch a td.

 

he might not want to come back either, lots of questions will be answered this season 

He might not want to come back true but if he has a season that makes him a big FA draw, why wouldn’t we want him and it’s not like we won’t have the cap space and cash to pay him. I just don’t believe you let successful players leave because you don’t have a 250 million dollar QB. He may not succeed this season with JB or CK, at that point, you let him go and let him seek money elsewhere because it didn’t work, not to save money you have on a guy who did help. The more options for a lesser talent at the QB is the right thing.

we have the money for literally anyone, doesnt mean it makes sense to bring them in 

 

if Brissett or Kelly look like the answer i would bring him back, if we are lost at QB id let him walk.  it could take years to find a QB, it would be a waste of money and EBrons prime to pay him here

No wrong, Ballard has already built a pretty good roster, better than anything Grigson did and arguably about as good or better than anything Polian did. 

 

Brisset could honestly surprise some people...and if he is not the guy you honestly think its going to take 5 years for Ballard to find the right quarterback, it took him 2 years to turn over the entire roster. 

 

Lets get real a football team is 53 players not 1, if our team as a whole keeps taking strides forward and the only position lacking behind is QB im completely fine with that.

I am more concerned right now how this effects guys like AC, Doyle, and Ebron. AC retiring could set us back as much as luck retiring. He is 31 so who is to say he will not just walk away after this season now. 

 

Mahomes had KC one off sides penalty away from the SB in his second year. 

I’m not sure why Luck leaving makes AC want to retire now when it’s possible to get another contract worth millions. Unless more injuries happen to AC, I see him retained.

Luck leaving right now doesn’t set this team back 5 years at all imho. CB has been trying to build a complete team, not just a QB with some scrubs around.

Two schools of thought for sure. Pay superstars around the average QB to make your chances better or wait till you get the star QB and then hope he is that and then start paying stars around him. I doubt any GM worries about wasting a players years when it comes to trying to build the best roster he can to compete. I also don’t think many stars worry about their years wasted if the money is given to them, we’ve seen that play out over and over when it comes to players going to a bad team but getting lots of cash to do it knowing the chance of a ring has become diminished but the bank account is maxed
