Taysom Hill did not practice and his availability for Sunday is in question (1 Viewer)

It's not apples to apples.

Right now, he's not playing QB. He's lining up at the QB/WR/TE positions and playing very physical football, as a ball carrier, blocker, and pass catcher. The guys who play even one of these positions on the regular get banged up all the time.

When he actually plays QB, he's done a good job staying healthy, minus a freak thumb-to-the-helmet injury (which he courageously played through) and a lisfranc, which can happen to anyone at any time.

It's much more apples to apples than you are describing. He ran plenty when he played QB for short stints.....and those injuries you describe happened in only a handful of games.....
 
i think some need to go looks at old Saints film like 1967 - to 2006 with the exception of a few years and see what bad and ineptness really looks like lol

and 2 more wins we will match 5 of Brees season records


True, to a degree. However, I have followed the Saints for 24 years and this is the easiest schedule we have ever had, by far!
 
With the way this coaching staff has protected Derek Carr like the freakin Bubble Boy all season, I can’t help but wonder if this is just a ruse to try and make sure lil’ Derek isn’t boo’ed again every time he subs back in for Taysom. 🤷

I know… ridiculous… but then look at the current state of this team. 👀
Have you seen this offense without Taysom? That plan will backfire fast.
 
There is too much hate on Carr right now. Does anyone remember this line that protects him? Who would not be a bit gunshy or miss open WR? We keep holding every quarterback to a once-in-a-generation talent (DB) and we are never going to be satisfied with the quarterback play.
Carr is part of the problem with the OLine. He cannot go through progressions. He locks on to the called route and takes too much time going away from it if it is not there. He does not trust his eyes.

Those 70's teams were the most inept in NFL history.
 
So by a medical miracle the QB knocked out of the game with rib /back/shoulder/concussion is running full sprints at practice and appears to be healthy. Assuming he passes protocol, he’ll start Sunday.

On the flip side of the boobirds, the player with no noticeable injury during the game (that I remember at least) is dealing with a foot and hand injury and everyone is mum on his availability this week.

All can say is…really?!
Smoke screen to confuse the Panthers! We need every bit of help we can get!

😂🤣😂

With all the hate aside, is it not possible that we give credit to our QB for not only being a tough son of a gun, but for wanting to return to the lineup as soon as possible, not withstanding what might be in his best interests?

Just because you didn't notice him being injured doesn't mean he wasn't. He too is one tough guy. It's possible that the injuries he suffered flared up post game with swelling and pain. For all we know he could have hurt his foot walking to the locker room. If it all possible you can bet he will play as well.

These type of comments. Really?

Nope. He ran more deliberately while playing QB, he wasn't blocking defensive ends and linebackers, and he wasn't getting unprotected shots after catching passes. Quite different. Thumb injury happens more to pocket passers than mobile QB's. Lisfranc not likely to recur, and wasn't a contact injury.

Sure, that’s definitely possible. I’ve acknowledged your scenario is a possibility, despite the irony. It could very well be as simple as that.

Now you try doing the same.

Your mistake is that you assume I hate Carr. Go through my post history. You’ll see that’s not the case. I very badly wanted Carr to be the answer, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna ignore what my eyes and ears tell me.

If my stance is not one of hate ,but instead, skepticism of this staff, does that encourage you to consider my perspective as a possibility?

Is it really that hard to imagine this coaching staff, who dodge accountability at every turn, the GM is telling the fans he doesn’t like booing and selling tickets…The QB talks down to reporters asking about his red zone issues…is it really that big of a stretch to think these millionaire good ole boys would make decisions just to spite the whiny fans because they can? I mean, are they suddenly going to stop being millionaires if they do? Three guys who could all be nearing the end of a long career, all three set for life…nope that is absolute idiocy to think that could happen.

What have you learned about Roger Goodell over the past 10 years? Have you learned that he’ll do whatever he wants as long as it’s in his best interest? He’s the ring leader of this circus, and the more I pay attention, the more I see things in a way that reflects a sad reality instead of how I wish it was.
 
The O-Line is fine. Carr has a major habit of holding the ball too long all season. When he gets hit, the pressure isn’t even that bad. He’s stepping into sacks or allowing the rush time to break free from blocks as he stands there holding the ball. Some of it can be playcalling not calling slants or other routes that breaks quicker. A lot of times Carr isn’t processing reads fast enough and doesn’t have a quick release. Receivers are open a couple seconds after the snap and Carr’s standing there not trusting his eyes or unable to read them.
Totally agree. He never moves in the pocket and needs to see a player open before he can think about throwing the ball. If you notice he throws a lot of balls behind his target. I think it is because he throws where the receiver is rather then anticipating where he is going to be.
