Why in the world would we draft a RB?

Approximate value is virtually the same for 1st and 2nd round QB picks (first link). Also, QB first round bust rate 40% is about the same as the chance of getting a pro bowler 42% over a 25 year sampl

Ballard wants to win with a dominant defense?  He's had three years to build one and is not close.  He better seriously up his game, and if you continue on with this scheme, I'm not sure you will ever

I think Eteinne is the second best back in this years draft behind Taylor, runningbacks don't get drafted as high anymore. I believe only Josh Jacobs was picked in the top 50 last year. Dobbins, Swift, Akers, Dillion, are other top prospects this year. I just think Eteinne would be there at 44

As much as I think he could of been better he didn’t have much to work with. Like someone mentioned he was good at hiding the warts first half of the season. Second half he couldn’t hide them anymore. That goes for both the QB play and the skilled offensive players we lacked. 

Nah, you can't excuse some of the game plans. Like Miami.... Against one of the worst rush Ds, he takes a back up QB who had no 1st team reps (that's in itself was dumb) during the week, and throws it all over the place. Super duper dumb. That's not hiding warts.

OH I agree on that one. What is worse is pulling the plug on Jacoby and not having a game plan for Hoyer

I have no doubt that with a better QB Frank will be in the upper echelon of coaches 

I think so too. But he needs a QB that fits his system. Without a guy that can "quick hit", and hit the occasional downfield shot, he's going to look pretty mediocre. Still, like the example I gave Chloe (Miami), some things are mind bending.

yeah any coach is gonna look bad with JB or any QB that isnt a fit for their scheme. I mean with a great QB in Luck he was a borderline COTY winner.

Regardless of QB, we should have done the same vs Miami. Switching shouldn't have mattered, but it was silly bad Hoyer got no reps given the situation. He had a couple games where he did not attack the opponents weakness, and played right into their strengths.
