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

    • Im talking about the 4th and 4 call they suggest improved our odds of winning by 13%.   We took a delay of game and punted in that sequence.
    • Ok but we are getting into the weeds there.   "Expected value" is not a term I personally like the sound of, and to me, seems like a way of polishing a turd.    Im more of a "if I make this decision and it works, this is what I get as a result" type of guy.   Handling the unexpected is a key to winning and what seperates coaches from good coaches. And creating your own adversity is never a good thing.    Heres the simplest way I can explain it.....   If I am after sex, and only ask girls out that are drunk, look at me and bite their lip.......and never get rejected, am I really as irresistible as I feel??? Or am I just good at making choices that lead me to where I get what I want? And how much do I increase my odds of getting herpes in this process?    So, if I am up 14 in the 3rd quarter and decide to go for it on 4th down and 1, because I like the matchup and i dont think they can stop me, and Im successful........did I win because I went for it on that 4th down? Maybe not. But the stat still gets charted and used down the road to suggest that decision heavily weighted my odds of winning......when in reality it was likely completely insignificant.   These decisions are usually made when you deem the odds favorable, so is it even a true representation of the odds when hou apply it to every situation? Of course not.    
    • Yup, and they tie the use of their products with the word "smart".   A person is smarter if they use analytics.  When in fact, the industry of processing stats is a money making industry on its own....of course they want their customers to think of themselves as being smarter than the folks who don't use their products.  Its a common sense marketing ploy.   Young males tend to be influenced by that kind of product/image association.  Not to go OT, but Congress had to step in when it involves something harmful, like Cigarettes.
    • I don't expect great numbers from most kickers over 50.   Do you have the stats for 40-50? Now that would be interesting.
