Wilson out due to “depth” of roster?

What does this even mean? 
The trade deadline has passed. Does anyone think a trade fell through? Is something else going on here? 

I'm guessing that they felt they had enough DB muscle to defend Denver, who is bottom 10 in passing yards per game. Just like they likely left Cain inactive as they new they weren't going to throw it a lot vs Denver's pass D, and certainly not long. Cain runs more deep routes than anyone, less slot routes than any WR (we ran a high proportion of possession pass plays), and the largest part of our passing game plan was short to medium. Aside from the broken play to TY, we didn't have a pass play with more than 16 yards the entire game.

It means that Wilson likely has the rest of this season to prove he deserves a spot on this roster.

It means that UDFAs and/or late round draft picks are beating him out of his PT.  He has/had no trade value.

Taylor didn’t play any defensive snaps but I believe he played special teams. They probably wanted him for slot Incase Kenny went down. Reich and Eberflus have both said it’s the guys who practice the best  who will play.  It’s still weird to me with Desir out.

Don’t overthink it. It’s a benching. Whether it’s for on the field play, issues with “practicing and being a pro”, or a combination of the two, Wilson has been benched by his 2nd coaching staff.

I agree. There is no other way to say it.  With Desir out you don’t sit him out.

I have to agree, Desir was out and he still couldn't make the gameday squad.  Probaby won't be with the team next year.  

 

I suppose that means we can count Wilson as one of Ballard's few busts.

I just hope this jabroni doesn’t go on to become a great player once he leaves. 
 

I offered to drive Tim Jennings to the airport daily for a long time there for a stretch, and then he went to the Bears and became a great player for them. 
 

Life ain’t fair.

 Jennings was no more than solid in 4 of his 6 years as a Bear.
 One big year in 2012, and a good one in 2013. And you can bet the Bears Team D was a big part of his short lived success.
 

 Maybe we can trade Wilson for Mariotta, or Bortles. MANY 1st round draft picks just don't ever play to their draft slot. 
When a Tell, Milligan, Taylor get a shot and become good players, we can get excited about them. It evens out when you scout and draft smart.

Ballard's quote about Wilson essentially being a gamer, something along the lines of "...no matter what he just shows up in games" made me wonder about his practice habits. Especially under a coach like Flus who's all about maximum effort, no loafs, etc.

I actually think he could be decent in another environment, under a more lax coach (not that that's a good thing). Probably more man based scheme.

    • I think she is just coming from the backstory that AC has interests outside of football.  Not purely recreational but interests that a normal person would have that would allow him to support himself in a manner that he wants to despite already having millions in the bank from playing football for 9 years.   I have read this too in the past, but have no links.     But if you want to talk tendencies of people, he is reportedly a Rhodes Scholar and people like that tend to pursue interests other than purely being drawn towards getting another $50mil.  Not saying the money doesn't matter.   There comes a point in a persons life where how you spend your time, every minute of your life, becomes more important than how much EXTRA money you have.  Just sayin.
    • Most that leave early have injury issues pressing them. If you look at the majority, if not all of the big names retiring early, most are skill positions. Feel free to name an OL that retired early near the peak of his career when offered 50M or more to stay. You'll have to look pretty hard to find one, and what you will find are mostly RBs, QBs, WRs, TEs, etc that for the most part have made considerable more bank than AC.   Sweet Jesus, look at the history.....   Not saying he won't retire, but you're acting like it's common. Quit acting like it's obvious and that you're the voice of reason here.
    • I just re-lived it. Well, back to therapy for me. 
    • How are they alike?    Outside of some facial hair, they both grew up very different, and followed very different paths to the NFL. AC was from a working class Italian family in IL, and went to a military academy. He was only a 2 star prospect going into college. Luck was born into a family with a ton of money, lived abroad, and was a 5 star or high 4 star recruit going into college depending what service you look at.   Not saying they don't have similarities, or haven't bonded, but there's a lot that is very different. 
    • He's smart enough to make money doing other things besides play football.   Its not like he's got a huge posse to fund for the rest of his life because he can't do anything for himself.   I'm assuming the decision to retire or not is not based on money, he knows he's going to be rich if he stays and has already factored that in before making this announcement to decide.   But money can certainly influence it.   I think playing under the franchise tag for one year makes sense for both sides.
