I haven’t seen passes this meekly thrown since Pennington was playing QB.  Actually Brees looked similar in his retirement game against Brady last playoffs. 

he tried to float and give his guy a chance. every one was covered and there was no bad side if you toss an INT there.

    • I'm hooping that it is not a rookie QB at the helm.   I'm not sold on any of the QB's in this years draft.  I would love to bring Jimmy G in to QB the team for a couple years while a young QB is groomed.
    • I think I'm agreeing with you, if the end of the season means after the SB.   The issue is that if Coordinators are offered jobs during the playoffs, and assistant coaches play musical chairs, it disrupts the continuity of the teams that are in the playoffs.  The newly promoted coaches may lose interest in their present duties.   The NFL playoffs could end up being a little like the college bowl season, where coaches (and players in the case of college) move on to the point that the team playing in the bowl isn't really the same team that earned the bowl game.   The time to do any NFL coaching hires is for every team to have to wait until the season is over, which is the day after the SB.  JMO.  Unless a team wants to hire a college coach or a retired coach, like Payton.
    • Ballard has the right idea - hit on the QB and get the OL in shape, and expect the QB to make those 2nd rounders and 3rd rounders good. Burrow and the Bengals will soon have to do that because retaining both Higgins and Chase along with Burrow, will not give them the luxury of the best OL and it will be like Peyton's team construction all over again while the Chiefs have a LOT invested in their OL and soon will pay Orlando Brown too, so skill positions and draft picks, they will be mixing and matching as years go on as long as Mahomes and Reid are together. If the right opportunity comes along like the Titans GM being dumb enough to trade A J Brown, you take it.     We need to hit on the draft, period, routinely over the next couple of years to get more starters for the future with good player development from the coaches.
    • Turay had that on his resume coming out of college too. Lewis and Campbell did not, just bad luck on both fronts.   However, it is time for a fresh start with a rookie QB and innovative offensive play calling and significant player development across positions. Can't keep holding on to roster spots with players not being available, have to make tough decisions. People forget that the Chiefs hit on a lot of their draft picks and those draft picks were developed by the coaches well over the course of the year. That is, the draft, is still the life blood of any team for sustained winning.   Eagles - you have Bradberry, Hargrave, their guard Isaac Seumalo, C J Gardner Johnson all as free agents and it is pretty much impossible to bring all of them back, knowing they will pay Hurts after 2023 season. Bengals - once they pay Burrow and Higgins, hard to bring Bates, Von Bell, Hayden Hurst, Tre Flowers all back, and they have to run around and pay Chase, and might face a decision like the Chiefs did with Hill.   Chiefs - in fact have a greater chance of sustained winning because they have actually HIT on their draft picks and now that they have shown they can get journeymen like JuJu, MVS for 1 or 2 year deals and make it work with Mahomes, have a greater chance of success, IMO. Bengals have also drafted well to stockpile talent. 
    • Fabrication to protect Ballard.  There is zero evidence that Frank influenced Ballard on the Ryan deal.  In fact, its been reported that Irsay told Ballard to up his offer for Ryan...which was finally a third round pick.   Obviously, Frank did not pound his fists in protest, but to suggest Ballard listened to Frank's opinion about Ryan at the time of the trade is just not evident.   BTW, listening to Frank's opinion about winning with Rivers actually worked well.
