I agree somewhat with this, Ballard certainly has had his misses, but so does every GM. But you can't understate the impact of the Luck fiasco and I don't think we've recovered from it. 

Yes, they have.  They've had three years, that's time enough.  LUCK has about as much to do with this team as Brissett does at this point.

I agree with the other post earlier, We are just doing things that losing teams do. Bad tackling, horrible blocking, nonsensical penalties and mistakes. This is so hard to watch our team play like this

All those things go back to coaching or lack of. We know a lot of these guys are capable of better.

We are playing like we are scared that Brissett will carve us up with arm talent. 


Even in the running bail out technique at times.  I’m at a loss for words.  


It was predictable though. I predicted he'd feast on our cushion, and he is.... Was one of the few that picked JB to have more yards than Wentz lol.. 


So far....

53 JB

Some teams have spend decades in the wilderness seeking a franchise QB. We've had JB, who isn't the guy. A high mileage Rivers, and now retread Wentz. I'll be more damming if Ballard actually drafts a premium QB of his choice and it doesn't work out. 


Some of the power politics behind the scenes I can see being quite interesting...

    • Texans colts has a chance to be flexed too if both teams keep winning.
    • I haven’t been impressed with the colt lb’s for a long time. To me the biggest needs are another big dt, and lb, maybe one that is a little bigger and has pass rushing skills. That’s where I would focus the top 2-3 rounds. As always, if a player you like isn’t there at those positions, trade down and get more picks. 
    • IMO, yes, it could use an upgrade, I don't see an elite LB on our squad but given the pass happy nature of the league, our LBs are built for where the league is heading to be good enough, like you said. If a team goes jumbo, 3 TEs with 5 OL or 2 TEs with 6 OL and tries to run it down our throat, we don't have a thumper of a LB or DT depth to disrupt that kind of game plan, unless we get ahead and play ahead on offense, which has not been the case since the Andrew Luck days for most of the time. But if they go 4 wide, we have the lighter bodies to keep up.   If the Titans go with that game plan, I am afraid we are going to have to worry unless everyone plays with "perfect" gap integrity 80-90% of the time, which typically doesn't happen.
    • Always meaningful against those bums.
    • In general, I agree with you.  However, when two stud (I know Chase has yet to prove himself) edge rushers become available IMHO, you take a chance and get one.  If he doesn't work out, you lost a high draft pick.  If he works out, you pay him what they're getting.   Then you have a D line that Gus needs to run his defense.  Pressure on the QB without the blitz.     So, I'm not disagreeing with you in the greater scheme of things.  But there are exceptions to the rule.
