This is a great perspective and I agree. We should be eliminated in three weeks. Great opportunity to get the OL and backs healthy for last two divisional games. Let Book get game reps. If Payton thinks he can be the future this would really help offseason planning.Payton said they are impressed with what they see from Book at this point, but he is not ready. It's really not hard to understand. As to your statement, "nothing to lose", that is clearly not the case. Regardless of how bleak things may look, we are not eliminated yet, so there is no reason to do something illogical just because we are going through a rough patch. When we are officially eliminated, Payton may decide to give him some playing time if he thinks it would be beneficial, because at that point, you'd have nothing to lose. Right now, Taysom gives us a better chance.
If Book shows something you bring a stop gap in like Teddy. If he is deer in headlights maybe you are more aggressive in finding longer term solutions. We have to be real about where this team is. Evaluation is paramount for the remainder of this season.
