There’s literally no QB in this draft worth trading for. Really isn’t. It’s a weak QB class

Gross dude

I guess sometimes the fans aren’t all that stupid.

Actually no we wouldn’t. If we had won those two games we either would of clinched today or at least next week. We are basically going to miss the playoffs by one game.

It would still have come down to next week. We would have to win or else it would go to TBs with TN if they win. And if we ended up with the same record, I believe they would win on "common games" as our div and conf W/Ls would be the same.

I actually didn’t find today’s outcome too surprising (Hines’ returns aside) just like I didn’t find last week’s brutal loss surprising.

 

Then again I follow the Panthers quite a bit because I have some guys in fantasy. With Grier getting the start and considering how bad their D has been in recent weeks, especially with Rivera’s recent firing, they’re just a really bad football team with a lone bright spot in CMC.

I see how many say JB is a terrible QB. You do not win 38-6 with a terrible QB or even go 8-8.

It is his leadership and how the team responds to him. His stats were bad I admit but he made some good throws all game and he doesn't throw silly INT's to lose a game normally. I am on record saying we should draft another QB though but not sure where or who. We can't settle :thmup:

 

I think his leadership is overstated. I am sure plenty of people had someone that they worked with who they really liked and even rallied "the team" but you knew he wasn't really that great at his actual job. I believe the locker room likes him, but I don't think you would get much push back from the locker room if he was replaced at this point.  IMO the rest the team know he is a weak link even if they won't come out and say it.  This is one of the only positives I see in the FO/Reich continuing to play him.

Just like today, those wins had very little to do with the QB. The colts seemed to win most of those in spite of JB, not because of him

Yeah, plenty of people were saying it during our hot start, that our point differential was closer to a .500 team. And sure, we had injuries, but we also benefitted from some opposing teams injuries.

Yup, it's just not sustainable. Maybe if we had a lights out D, but we don't.

It is ashame JB got injured at Pitt, that would've gave me in my mind how good he may have been this year had he played and we won. I need closure. I don't have it yet, some do. I seen our team win 38-6 today with ease, it looked like we beat a highschool team. I am just done trying to figure this out lmao 

Basically watching a preseason game, with a team starting a new quarterback!

I honestly don't think the Texans and Titans are weak.

The div is very mediocre, or perhaps "average" is the better word. Capable of beating some decent teams, but also capable of losing to bad teams. All 4 teams range from slightly below average to slightly above average. None very high, none very low. I'd take our bottom half vs any other AFC bottom half though.

Tom Brady has won a couple.

Also Peyton Manning won one as a barely serviceable game manager

Brady is not a game manager. One of the highest IQ QBs ever.

PM was the perfect game manager that year. The year before, didn't he break all kinds of records. And that D...

Brady was being facetious. 

Manning was a shell of himself, and watching him throw a football was painful to watch. The D won that super bowl...so yeah, game manager.

Very very painful. I was so sad for him. Only started 9 games that year, but still had 225 ypg. 20 more than...

I really don’t see many people say he’s terrible. There’s a few, sure, there’s always gonna extremists, but mostly I see people say they don’t think he’s good or is below average. Or average, even.

 

I could be totally off base here, but it seems like today some people have gotten very defensive over critiques of JB’s performance against the Panthers. And I do mean critiques, because 90% of negative comments have mostly just been pointing out that he didn’t really have a good game.

The critiques are fine with me but there are many that have posted JB stinks. I am ok with it but I find it funny. He is average at worse and I think he is above average but has not yet proven to be good - great. I think ESPN and the NFL Network and Frank Reich agree with me so I will roll that.

No one will convince me that if Adam had not kicked poorly and Jacoby did not get injured we would not be 11-5 to end the season. Even if Jacoby is the starter next year with WR staying healthy and a couple upgrades we will be a good team next year.

Both ESPN and NFL.com had articles this last week questioning JB, and suggest a change may be coming.

 

So you're rolling with FR right now, which isn't bad, as long as it's not coach speak...

I am all for giving him one more year.  More draft picks and be more active in free agency.

I'm not opposed to drafting or finding his replacement this offseason.  But I for one do not think that we are a QB away from being a legitimate steady contender.  And, if two of our premier positions need replacing soon, LT and #1 WR, we will be getting farther away. 

 

We were a contender because we had the next John Elway #1 pick QB carrying our team, not the 4th best QB in a draft. 

 

If the QB is there with one of our picks, then take him. But be prepared for it to not be an elixir, IMO.  Manning or Luck isn't coming soon, and we need more than them anyway.

That's like saying a team can't have a losing record with a great qb.....not true at all it happens plus brissett was ok today he did nothing special

Maybe I just trust Frank a lot.

 

See, I actually believe Frank believes that. I think back to what he’s said about conversations with Ballard in regards to upgrading the roster, stuff like “I tell Chris, I can win with these guys. Just let me coach these guys.”

 

Then again, it’s not solely up to him. I really, really wish I could hear a convo between Reich and Ballard about the QB situation this offseason.

And don’t mistake me when I say this I am saying we don’t need a upgrade at QB. All I am saying is even if he starts next year I think we will be find. I refuse to be negative.

 

I mean, I’ve seen ya be negative. Just sayin (and I have been too, I think most people have at some point this season).

If we start JB next year, you do know nothing less than 10-6 and a division Title will just be an implosion in here haha . If Ballard sticks with JB he better draft Ceelamb and go all defense after that with Tackles and CB's. In FA Agency get another WR and a pass rusher, JMO

It’s great that you refuse to be negative. So do ostriches when they stick their heads in the sand.

Not being negative has nothing to do with being naive. It has everything to do with choosing to be positive, and reaping the benefits as a fan, from making that choice. I am positive all the freaking time......and am not surprised in the least when things don't go right. 

 

In some ways, it is the opposite of being "real" and miserable/dissapointed/depressed/etc.

Having a severe disability and having to rely on others I have a lot more to worry about then a silly game and something I can’t control. All I can do is support what we have.

I would guess one more than if we relied on game managers.

I don't know. Many would call Jim Harbaugh a game manager, and he was only play away from the SB. Closer than Mr. Luck got, and according to the board now, his leaving is the reason we're not elite.

I loved Jim, got his autograph at the SD game back in 1996. My mom loves him. My mom has the pic and autograph at her house lmao , no kidding. That 1995 season we had was so priceless.

Honestly, how many game manager QBs besides Flacco have won SBs in the last 10-20 years?


I would put Joe at a higher level than a game manager. Trent Dilfer was more of  a game manager than Joe. 
Joe earned that Super Bowl beating Luck, Manning , Brady, and Kaep in his prime in 2012. In 2011, he had Brady beat , putting a ball right into Lee Evans hands, who dropped it.  The 2011 Ravens team was better than the 2012 version that won it all. They matched up better against the Giants than the Patriots did. 
Also remember Joe was 10-5 post season, and has the record with seven road playoff wins. 
He wasn’t elite, but he was a bit more than a game manager. He had some good wins.

    • Agree on the surface, but   Between he and Campbell. we really dont know what we have yet.   Are they EXPECTING both to be ALL Pro?  I dont think so   Would I like a 4th round pick to be used on a WR like Terry..... Yes!   4.4 40 at 6-4       Today, we can go play football with our current WRs group and we can add a WR later in the draft   With the holes at LT and DL (And possibly a move TE)   I truly hope that we address the gaping holes in the lines before we add other positions               
    • Lol.  I already acknowledged your point about the team having complete medical info in my response to Shive’s post above, and admitted I didn’t know about UCLA’s concussion policy.       But, if saying something that “isn’t even true” proves the other person’s point, then I must point out that apparently he transferred to Miami because they have a better music program.  It seems he did decide to medically retire and pursue his other passion - music.  But then changed his mind.  
    • I'd be shocked if he didn't trade down.  He loves draft capitol and has shown that he stands by his word of building through the draft.  He wants more picks and we can trade out of 21 to the later part of round 1 and pick up 1-2 more picks.  That's what I see Ballard doing.
    • Agreed.   There are various avenues to addressing those positions, and the draft is obviously one of them.  But it’s probably the biggest one, considering that Ballard is clearly socking away money for upcoming high value free agencies.   I won’t make any predictions about who our 1st 2 picks will be.  But I’ll be really surprised if at least one of them isn’t either a DE or an LT.
