Definitely I do believe Wentz will be better than stafford

For your consideration….

 

Wentz can have a very good year (which I expect) and Stafford might still have an even better one. 
 

We’ve got a great running game, the Rams do not.  Stafford will be throwing more.   The Rams have better receiving weapons than the Colts.   And as much as I love Frank Reich, the Rams have Sean McVay, one of the brightest young minds in football today.     
 

For those reasons, I expect Stafford to have a slightly better year than Wentz.

Replace those last two with Howie Roseman and I think you got it. I remember when the eagles were searching for a new HC they said they wanted a young coach who didn't want any roster control because Roseman was gonna keep that.

 

 

 

It makes sense he isn't as likable or trusted between the fallout with Pederson, Wentz, Ertz, and those being the ones we know about there has been alot of contention with the Eagles Front Office. 

 

It seems like Roseman, Wentz and Pederson had a three-way fallout. I think Ertz just wants to get paid.  

 

But yeah, Sirianni is going to be a yes-man. But if you are him, you absolutely take that gig. There is enough talent on that offense to be successful on that side of the ball. And if Hurts looks like a legit NFL QB under your tutelage, that's on your resume forever, regardless if you end up a sacrificial lamb after this season or next.

The LAR were #4 in rush offense DVOA last year. They even rushed for more yards than the Colts.

 

Losing Akers hurts them, but they brought in Michel, who is more than capable RB1b for them. They don't have the same level of talent after the Akers injury, but with McVay, they could definitely have a very good run game (with their OL and passing offense).

Thanks.   Appreciate the correction.

 

That’s very good info.          :thmup:

    • A defender fell on his leg. Its unreal the bad luck PC has had in his career. I cant imagine many who wouldn't be injured by that hit on his leg. 
    • Can I ask you something? When you were in the media, did you do damage control all the time for the front offices of the teams you represented? I'm asking because you are the only poster on this site with that style. You always try to do "damage control" for Irsay, Ballard, and Reich whenever something bad happens with this team. I'm just curious if it's because you used to do the same as a media member in the past and now you do it here?
    • Vindication! Kudos to Q for calling Frank out on what a lot of us have been saying for months now. Also good to see him going to Taylor to get him on board - that's a team captain right there!   I don't wants this splitting the community, but some of us has been saying this for a long time now and when a guy like Q calls Frank out there's something to it. Ultimately we all want the same thing - Ws.   Can we talk about Darius walking into the wall now...   
    • It’s not the best look, and I’m sure he’ll get roasted a bit and feel the heat, but at the end of  the day it won’t change much in Frank’s inherit beliefs or values on how the games need to be called. Better or for worse. Something that caught my attention that another poster said was how much influence Wentz has on Frank’s decision making.   My best example is when we played the Ravens. IIRC we had decent balance, Taylor got fed, and instead of passing a bunch in the end we kept running which allowed them to get back in the game since it was getting stopped. Carson made a comment saying we need more of a killer instinct. Since then it teetered to more passing, even when running might make more sense…   Need to do some retooling during the bye week and solidify our identity. We are too talented only to be this inconsistent. 
    • My thoughts exactly.   Its when things get “dicey” that he seems to get flustered.  But he’s your man if you wanna gameplan a first-half. Also, Sometimes you have too many toys in the sandbox and overlook the best ones.
