I slightly disagree here. It depends on who the QB is we draft and how ready he is to play immediately. For example, if we draft Jordan Love it's very possible he won't be ready and would greatly benefit from learning from the coaching staff the sidelines without pressure to perform right away. This way you will have 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period to develop him and smooth over his weaknesses, which if not addressed my doom his career before it even starts.
In all cases I want Jacoby to finish this season, because I think he's still the best option for us to win games now... and even if there is a small chance that he takes a leap in the last third of the season, I want to see it.
But... if we draft a QB high I want open competition for the starting job next summer. That means - if Frank and Ballard think he's ready before the season starts, then give him the job. If not - keep Brissett as the starter and develop the new guy for the following year...
I’m not sure about this defensive coaching staff getting guys into the best positions to succeed. There is something missing with this team. I’ve harped many of times, this coaching staff doesn’t appear to instill discipline or accountability equally across the team. Whatever Wilson has done to upset the coaching staff doesn’t seem to apply to other cb’s who don’t perform well. 3 lineman in to rush when we can’t get to anyone with 4 and they still carve you up for chunk plays? What scheme is Eberflus employing here? This team is all over the map in terms of performance from game to game.
min some fairness here, Watson is really really good and his receivers are pretty top notch as well. It’s a miracle we held them to 20 tbh.
This team needs a new QB as in last draft. JB is not getting it done, too slow in reads, too predictable, and HC is getting outcoached. BTW where's the OC (Siriani) in all of this offensive calling, he was supposed to be the offensive guru we picked up from the Chargers?
