I will really be ticked at Ballard if he brings in a journeyman vet to start if Wentz misses a couple games.

 

I have a feeling it's more than a few games.

I told ya indefinitely was the key word..... Not the textbook definition, but in context of when NFL personnel use it on vague injury descriptions....

This team is a three ring circus at this point. 

Just the QB room.

Most likely If he has a minor procedure it’s 6 to 8 weeks  So that would mean missing the first couple games.

Don't worry, Frank will coach Eason up. 

 

Oh, yeah.  No Frank.

Will they even give him a chance or be dumb and bring some vet in and hand him the job. 

Ha we might get that first round draft pick.

Ballard would be smart to give some statement and get out in front of this.

 

Nor expecting a great start to the season.

What IS the injury even?  I'm over the wishy washy b.s. with this team and injuries.  Ballard is great at many things, controlling a narrative he absolutely sucks at.

Can I introduce you to my old friend, Liz Frank?

That's not what a lisfranc is.... A lisfranc is a spiral fracture of a tarsal bone, not a ligament anything.... And there's no way around a year ending injury if that was it

Why would that necessarily be dumb?

 

Obviously, we have a coaching staff and a front office personnel staff for a reason:  and one big reason is to evaluate the personnel decisions that would best benefit the team.

 

If Wentz is a no-go for Week 1 (as seems plausible, if not likely, right now), then Reich, Ballard, Dodds, etc. are going to have to determine if we're a better team with Eason or a journeyman vet under center.

 

Granted, there are other considerations -- like getting a 4th round draft pick some real game experience.  But if he's not ready, he's not ready.  And this isn't High School football.  Every single game is going to count, big time.

Call Phil!! Man played on a bad foot last season! I really miss the days where we had 1 QB behind center! We can't even count Phil as many times as JB entered the game:(

If Wentz is out for the season, I think that will be what we try to do. Question is, has rivers any interest and is he even in shape to it still

    • It is great people express their concerns about the team, being critical of the team. I am concerned about getting a playoff spot myself. Nothing wrong with it but we are going to lose our fair share of games, it happens with every team. As long as we don't lose against a team that stinks then I can see why we lost to certain teams. This site may be the most busiest site in football? I can't imagine us all being GB fans and Rodgers not winning a SB since 2010. Those threads would be entertaining as hell everytime they lose. The Rams have literally bought a team and they have lost 3 in row, if we were Rams fans this place would be . I don't even want to mention being a Cowboys fan and being here after every loss - How about those Steelers, Ben is toast  , my point is relax people it could be much worse.
    • I agree Wentszn, I do genuinely feel we've improved a huge amount this season, and were really only a couple of pieces away from being a SB contender imo. Hell, if we made the playoffs this season, I think we can win games.   What been really cool to see is seeing so many players raise their game to a new level, Taylor, MJP, Rock, Rodgers, Paye, etc. along with Wentz playing well. Those are our foundational pieces for the future.
    • @Btown_Colt, you got onto me earlier for me saying you wanted Frank gone, you said you didn't. I apologized for it because I thought you did. This thread proves you do, you wrote a book ripping him, I mean 6 different paragraphs explaining what Frank said was concerning and what he did wrong  . Just admit it, you want him out. I am ok with it but I think he is a good coach. I guess everytime we lose a game, I should expect this kind of thread from at least 3 or 4 people. Yeah Frank should've used Taylor more, Bowles is a genius  - what was Frank supposed to say, that Bowles couldn't carry my jock strap and he got lucky today at the guessing game . We lost to the SB Champions against the greatest QB ever and a great run D, by a measly 7 points. It is not like we lost to Humpty Dumpty and his little Texans.
    • You acquire players for their potential. Actual performance is gained through discovery.
    • Just to be clear, the quarter and a half I'm talking about are the entire 3rd and almost first half of the 4th quarter.  The 2nd quarter was very pass heavy, BUT, they still did incorporate the run.  Taylor had 4 carries for 21 yards (over 5 ypc) in the 2nd quarter, which was overwhelmingly the most successful portion of the game.    when you say "we as a fan base" and "you can't want"...you're including multiple groups of people.  people that were complaining about the lack of aggression are likely not the same people now complaining about abandoning the run.  Just as an example, I have personally never complained about the lack of aggression in offensive playcalling.  In fact, even going back to the Manning days, I got the most frustrated when Manning would abandon the run for long stretches.  It's all about balance...not being pass heavy and not being run heavy.  Yes, take what the defense gives you, but you simply cannot completely abandon one half of your offensive playbook for such long stretches at a time, especially against the top defenses like the Bucs.     Whether Frank wants to pass to setup the run, or run to setup the pass...either way I don't care.  but the passing game works best when play action is utilized, and play action loses all of its effectiveness when the team goes one dimensional and abandons the run.  not to mention the chances of committing turnovers goes up exponentially when you go one dimensional.      More than anything though, I do want to thank you for forming an intelligent counterpoint and being open minded enough to consider the alternate point of view.
