No announcement yet.

If we had a real preseason I might be calling for a QB controversy right now

    Exactly. Plays great then self-destructs after one interception. Up 17-0 against a shitty Washington Football Team. Rodney Peete could have put that away.

    I like Carson but how do you win a Super Bowl with a guy like that?

    The inconsistency kills me. How do you go from looking like an all pro for one quarter to looking like a frazzled rookie?

    Oh well. A Dallas loss would take some of the sting away.
    Sanders would be a big help but as we saw today, relying on him puts them one hit away from a 2018 RB situation. They need another back. Johnson would help more than Sanders. If his ankle surgery really was a "cleanup" I'm not sure why he waited so long.

    Like you said, what's frustrating about today is that Carson *was* winning them the game for almost a half. Then he goes on an 0-6, 2 INT stretch, with some awful sacks mixed in, and never recovers. Obviously teams need to protect their QBs, but a couple times a year a team has to win with the run/pass ratio getting really out of whack.

    The O-line is a mess.. When you know people are coming in hot you have to drop back and fire though. Throw it away if you have to.. Anything to get that ball off.. Especially in field goal range. He has a habit of holding the ball and running around back there. He ends up getting clobbered and fumbles sometimes too. It's all about quick timing patterns in the WCO. He's got to step up. Coaches need to coach better too. Doug sucks at play calling sometimes when he starts passing on every down. Defenses just start T-ing off on Wentz who holds the ball. Honestly, I think it was a great move drafting another QB. Who even knows if Wentz makes it a full season

It’s 1 game, but I wish he could’ve made the beer taste better tonight instead of pissing into it.
    It would be nice if Howie actually addressed those issues in the offseason. His draft was brutal and he has zero depth as a result. This is the first game of the season and this roster looks like an end-of-the season roster. Let's not overlook the fact that this team is on it's third medical staff in as many years. These players are dropping like flies again and they still don't have a remedy for this. They have plenty of excuses though.

    One pick was on him the other was on the rookie WR. Can't hold onto the ball for so long; you need to know when to let it go,,That has costed Wentz alot,,if he has blocking and a running game and plays like this then Ok ,,Start belly aching. But with this Oline and him getting UnBlocked guys over and over coming at him I don't blame Carson,,,the whole team played poor in the second half,,Wash is a shitty team that took advantage a weak O line...here's to hoping Lane can play soon and sanders will be back!

    WTF can't our Dee Co get guys free on a Blitz? what's wrong with fucin Shwartz?

    We can't just pass every down. We need to pound the rock and wear defenses down. Control the clock. Boston Scott isn't really a 3 down back. He's great as a role player. Sanders is a small dude and will get banged up if they over-use him too. We should've kept Howard. He was starting to fit into the system nicely and gave us the big-back ball control we needed. As for Wentz.. I haven't been impressed with him at all since 2017. He's just not consistent

    All of these guys are mutts.

    All of these guys are mutts.

    Tight Ends: Zack Ertz, Dallas Goedert
    This is all they had.

    This team is full of fucking mutts.

    Many were screaming we needed a quality RB here to help. Sanders can't do it himself and if he goes down well we just saw what our running game is. How this organization is so inept and cannot forsee that we needed RB depth is retarded to say the least. Was that Howard that scored a TD today for the fins lol Devonte Freemon is still out there, Bilal Powell, fuck how is Lamar Miller's ACL doing

    He is not an NFL QB, Wentz just had a rough day, oh being sacked 8 times does not help

    The game sums up what we’ve seen of Wentz so far. Looked great/elite on the first 3 drives - if he plays like that all the time he is MVP caliber. Same game, same defense he also looks atrocious with mistakes that probably cost them the game.
    sums it up he is either boom or bust and it happens in the same game which is fucking weird

    Like I said, he has plateaued.
    I agree with some of your points, but every QB makes mistakes. He’s a long term starter but you have to protect him. If he corrected some of his frustrating aspects he’d be a top 5 QB.

    As I've posted before, I'm a fan of having a running game to take some of the pressure off your QB. Scott and Clement are not the answer. They're not real backups. The wideouts still blow. The problem is they are running an offense that relies too much on the QB. They've been doing this for years now. Big Balls needs to run the offense like he has the backup QB in there. When you build the offense correctly, there will games you win on the running game alone. Someone asked earlier on here why nobody was talking about the upcoming season. After that shitty draft, we kinda knew this would happen. Howie has jumped the shark and his shitty drafts has caught up to this team.

    They managed to jump ahead 17-0 with the defense playing well. Wentz looking bad with that supporting cast is one thing but I don’t expect him to give the game away like he did today.
