Zach Pascal deserves some love

One heck of a game to him in a game that mattered a lot.  We've desperately needed that WR who can step up and take advantage of defenses overloading on TY.  Tonight he was that man.

 

I think you've got to give Pascal a major role in the offense at this point.  He's earned it and it looks like he might be able to handle it.  He has definitely leapfrogged Cain and Campbell, at least for now.

They say it takes a WR a couple of years. He is developing really nice and is starting to really starting to gain chemistry with JB. We will be that much better when DF comes back.  Seems pascal was running the same type of plays DF would be in there for. Ebron finally looked like the pro bowler TE we know.

Do not see you (comment-wise) a lot in the game thread (it seems )

I watched the game on my phone with the nfl AP so I didn’t post. I am trying to stay out of arguments.I am just having fun with this team.

He's our second best WR right now by some margin... I don't know if this should be taken as a positive or a negative, but it is what it is. He's easily overperforming his contract and the investment we've made in him. He is sudden with his movement and IMO will have a place in the rotation of an NFL team even if our WR corps wasn't so barren/injured. Good for him, seems to work on his craft, seems to improve, not much more you can ask from an undrafted guy.

He is also very important on run plays, he is an excellent blocker for a WR. I love his attitude. Really happy for him today, shows where hard work gets you.

Cain and Campbell can learn a thing or two from Pascal. And Rogers can keep the bench warm.

 

Great game.

 

Rogers was open a bunch today. And he caught both passes thrown to him so can't complain about him. I'd bet money that a lot of the game plan was built around Pascal and exposing Houston's injured DBs (three starters), and going somewhere else other than TY who would be doubled. We still tried to force it late to TY, but the first half and early 2nd was highly successful with first reads going to the X instead of Z.

He had a really good game but I won’t jump the gun until he shows consistency performances.

He has shown consistency. He has been great from that Atlanta game on. Once we decided to give him a bigger role in the offense he has stepped up.

Pascal is plenty consistent IMO. We have just forced way too much to TY and TE. It's more about feeding others (be it by play call, or by read progression) and allowing guys to step up. That happened today and Pascal delivered. TY will benefit the more we spread it around.

    • I see where you are coming from to some extent... but don't fully agree.  I think if you ask just about anyone who follows football and has for a long time to name the top 3 QBs ever, both Brady and Manning will be mentioned.  There are 23 QBs from the modern-era in the Pro Football HOF.  Several of those guys were not the best at their position at any point in their career.   Troy Aikman won multiple superbowls on absolutely loaded teams, but he was never a first or second team all-pro and was only a 6x pro-bowler (Rivers has gone to 8).  Aikman never lead the league in any major passing stat in any season of his career.  In 2008 Rivers threw the most TDs and had the highest passer-rating of any QB in the league, in 2010 Rivers lead the league in passing yards, in 2013 he lead the league in completion percent.  Aikman throughout his career was never really at the top of the league in terms of QB play (as evidenced by no first or second all-pro selections and never leading the NFL in any significant passer category) -- most would say Marino, Montana (early in AIkman's career), Steve Young, John Elway, Brett Favre, Jim Kelly, Warren Moon, and late in his career Kurt Warner and Peyton Manning were better QBs than Aikman.   That's one example out of many where guys who are in the HOF may not have been the top dog at any given point in their career, but still had a HOF career.  Compared to guys who he was drafted with who are likely HOFers, Rivers has better individual statistics than both Eli and Big Ben.  He was never really on an 'elite' team all-around (especially lacking a top notch defense like Eli and Ben both had during their SB wins).  RIvers beat Peyton in the playoffs and despite playing with other HOFers like Brady, Peyton, Brees, Eli, Big Ben, Kurt Warner, Favre, etc.. he made the pro-bowl 8x, and in 2008 when every one of those guys were in the league he still lead the league in passer rating and TDs thrown.     I get why post-season success can push a borderline guy (see Eli) over the edge.  But since Rivers has been in the league there have been 2 occassions when the QB representing the AFC team in the Superbowl wasn't named Brady, Peyton or Ben (1x Flacco with a loaded defense and 1x Mahommes who just had one of the greatest seasons by a QB in NFL history).     The level Rivers has played at, for the amount of time he's played, makes him a surefire HOFer (he's about to surpass Marino's records and the only knock on Marino was he didn't win a SB).  First ballot? Maybe... will he get in within a couple years of being eligible? Definitely.
    • Yeah, there are quite a few people that would not be in the HOF based on my criteria.
    • Seems unfair if it was once you signed a contract. That'd basically be an end to many players' careers. Players are rarely signed if they have a suspension of that length.
    • He's not right in the head. I honestly think something is severely troubled with him. If he can stay out year or two and prove he is serious about his recovery then maybe but not now.
