Leonard, Nelson, and Buckner are great. However, they are all here because of Ballard. Conversely, all the bad play on the field is because of Reich. We may not have the overall best team in the NFL, but they are playing below their level because of one problem, one man. It all trickles down to Reich. Ballard is the guy who has made us a great team, while Reich is the guy who keeps us below what we could be. 

With that thinking, isn't Reich here because of Ballard?

Yes, but I give some leeway to Ballard here as Reich was his 3rd choice. He didn't get McDaniels, and I forgot who his 2nd choice was. Ballard's hands were tied after McDaniels left us in the dust to stay in NE. Reich was a bargain bin coach and has proven why.

Your argument is completely flawed.  Ballard doesn't call the plays, and Reich doesn't draft the players, so you can't credit Reich with the quality of players, and you can't bash Ballard for the quality of play-calls.

 

You understand this, yes?

 

By your logic, even though Grigson was a bad GM for not providing Pagano great talent, then Pagano was a great coach because he still had a winning record with inferior talent... you see how flawed this argument is, right?!?

Why’s he still here?

Give it a rest already. Jesus Christ, just watch the game and then whine about Reich.

Ballard is giving Reich a great team to play with and Reich is playing them below their means. Without Luck, he is a below average coach. 

 

Grigson gave Pagano bad talent yes, and that was part of the reason Pagano was a bad coach. However, the other part wasn't player related. It was because he was really conservative, non-creative, didn't know schemes very well, and never really understood what was going on as a coach.

    • Chiefs put 42 on the Steelers. Ran away with it. I can't wait for the Bills at KC.
    • Turay is going to be gone.  Can’t stay healthy.  Banogu will be gone.  Paye looks like a quality starter, but not a game changer.  Lewis finally started to contribute before getting hurt.  Too early to say on Dayo.     Campbell has played in 15 out of a possible 50 games.  Pittman looks like a strong #2.  Literally can’t think of another meaningful WR he drafted.   Big whiff on Eason.  Kind of a wasted pick there.   I gave Ballard credit everywhere else, but we are where we are because he hasn’t nailed the money positions.  RB is a luxury position.  Love JT, but I’d trade him for Rodgers or Wilson 10/10 times and twice on Sunday.
    • If we traded up to get Herbert, we wouldn't have Buckner and we likely wouldn't have Pittman, Taylor, or Paye.  You failed to mention what we would have had to give up and discuss other holes in our roster.    I don't think Ballard would readily admit he whiffed on Herbert, as we would have had to traded with or surpassed the Chargers and that would have taken a ton to give up, if it was even possible.    In 5 years, I believe the only players left on our team are Kelly, TY and Doyle. Ballard has totally overturned the roster.  I don't think it's fair to say he is bad at evaluating WR, DE or QB. He got a good young WR in Pittman, we should be all right with Paye and Dayo and perhaps Turay and Lewis if they stay healthy. Campbell has been good when healthy. And he hasn't really gone for a young QB who we'd expect to be a franchise qb.    
    • We didn't get fleeced, but at this current moment I don't think we made the best decision long term. 
    • I think if he allows Ballard to do his job he's going to continue to win.  And re: Reich he has grown on me.  Team needs a strong draft and FA period and steady the course.
