If TY were to reinjure himself vs the Texans but we win, I might take that as a fair trade depending on how long he'd be out. I don't see us beating the Saints, but if Funchess and Campbell come back I think we can and should beat the Titans, Bucs, Panthers, and Jags, even without TY. We really have a chance to shut the door on Houston if we win tomorrow night. If we were to beat Houston, Tenn, and Jax all again, we would be in prime position for the division crown.
Personally, with how good Houston can play, I think we at least need to beat them, Tenn, Jax, and the Bucs to get the division
He doesn’t “have to ball out.” He put up 280 yards in our win against the Chiefs. 201 yards when we blew out the Jaguars. And when he does get big numbers, he gets them because he’s a damn good quarterback. Not trying to take a shot at Brissett, but he isn’t as athletically gifted as Deshaun. I wouldn’t expect him to “ball out” with 370 pass yards in addition to 60 on the ground.
I don’t get your argument, though. Do you fault the Chiefs because they have an MVP? Or any other team that has a player who puts up big numbers and gets wins?
If TY comes back and injures himself but we win, I think we will be okay for the next 3 games - though I would love to have him against the Saints.
If we rest him against the Texans and lose, it would really screw up the division chances. I want the division more than the overall record...I think?
I hope he plays this Thursday and we win, AND he doesn't re-injure himself. Ultimately, like Supes says, it's up to the TY and the docs. I put money on TY being out there Thursday.
