    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I want to believe, but All-Pro Analytics was wrong about everything with regards to Trent.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I would argue he has made progress in that we are more competitive now than we were before. But the likelihood of this team winning the next three is minimal at best, and he shouldn’t take that blame. In any event I just want him to stay healthy, get some game experience, and for the team to lock up the no.2.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    We can’t even run a playaction because AP misses his blocks repeatedly. Yea actually having a probowl OL and playcallers that aren’t interim coaches that write game plans centered around a 34 yr old rb that can’t block on a playaction makes a big difference. Why don’t you ask Andrew Luck the difference a good OL and play caller makes? Did you have an actual point?

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    did you see the multiple shots Dwayne took yesterday from free blitzers? Did you see any short intermediate routes even attempted to help him out? No, it’s not fair to compare the two with the supporting cast so incredibly different.

    The steelers have a pro bowl OL, elite level secondary, a great lb core, and a hall of fame coach. Again... comparing apples to oranges

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    We have no TE , all 3 starting receivers are rookies, the starting rb is 34, and the vagabond interim head coach has game planned around that guy. Can we stop trying to compare Haskins to other teams that have a much better surrounding cast?

    You didn’t realize that a rookie qb on a 3 win team may struggle on the road against a top 3 team in the NFC in their house?

    Because Callahan and Allen are looking out for their jobs. Keenum winning the game ain’t gonna cut it

    I don’t particularly think they will. He needs an offseason to work on mechanics. I think he comes out the gates with fury next year.

    Edited to add KO. But neither should be in charge of the offense. The creativity isn’t there for the modern league

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    If the offense wasn’t designed around 50-gut Adrian Peterson runs, then I think he would look a lot better. He took some serious shots from the pack today and hung in there when he could barely walk. Where was the playaction? Rolling of the pocket? Quick passes to keep the D from teeing off? Bill Callahan/KO can’t be the play caller next year. The offense is beyond predictable.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Kirk had a team here that won the division twice. One of which he was responsible for. It wasn’t a terrible roster his entire tenure, albeit one that was terribly mismanaged. ( Haslett/3-4 Def). He has been to the playoffs once, and was thoroughly outclassed by Rodgers. Asking for a multiple playoff wins out of KC would be a reach. Let’s start at winning against the best in the regular season first. My opinion stands that if you are an elite quarterback as per the contract you are given, then you are asked to put up more points than the opposition, and the number is irrelevant. Some continue to rise to the occasion ( Rodgers, Wilson, Brady) after being given such a contract. Some are tbd ( Ryan). Others have destroyed the team (Flacco, E Manning, soon to be Prescott/Goff/Wentz). If the question is : did we make a mistake not moving him after it was apparent he did not want to be here AND wanted the highest paycheck, then absolutely. Bruce is exceptional at his job /s. But if the question is did we make a mistake letting him go, then no. I see some things in a guy like Haskins I never saw in Kirk. Maybe it’s moxie, or fortitude, or fearlessness. You could say it’s an attitude that says, give me the ball, I’m going to score. It’s the difference between an Otto Porter and a Paul Pierce. Not saying Dwayne will ever get to the elite level, though I’m hopeful. But I am saying that when it’s apparent a guy doesn’t have the ability to win against the best, it’s time to blow it up and try again until you get it right. Jax made the right ( albeit monetarily difficult) decision to move in from Foles and give the reigns to Minshew. That man has it, and more often than not, it’s apparent early on.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Im not sure why the vitriol was necessary here. You are more than entitled to your own opinion. It’s odd that you would take such offense to a relatively simple take, and certainly one that wasn’t directed to anyone in particular. The story is quite simple at this point with KC. He’s a good qb ( possibly even great) that has elite level statistics, but can’t win the big games regardless of venue or significance. ( which just so happen to be against winning teams). For this reason, I think my opinion of not paying him that contact has been validated. The fact that we have sucked since the trade is irrelevant. We aren’t judging him in any other statistic other than his ability to produce a win against the best, because we know all the other criteria has been met. Each of the losses against winning teams have had diverse circumstances, but most of them had similar situations where he had the opportunity to succeed. When you have the opportunity to win the game, as a Kirk did last weekend, you have got to eventually come through. The best qbs usually do. I know the defense could be better. The special teams could be better. Over the years the defense in particular in Min has been consistently great. ( special teams not so much). Unfortunately, KC has consistently failed to produce a win under the aforementioned pretenses over the course of his career, and that is what has and will continue to define him until the narrative changes.
