RandyMossIsBoss Posted September 28, 2020 Share Posted September 28, 2020 I think we need a thread dedicated to what is looking like could be a very real problem. Within a GDT I know many are already "over" Carson but we are all emotional in the GDT. So several hours, and hopefully a night's rest for those reading this in the morning, removed from the trauma, what are people's thoughts on Carson? Obviously he is playing like garbage, worst stretch since his rookie year, and has led us to losing 2 games we'd surely have won with even a league average QB. A few questions to get the ball rolling: 1. On this 1-10 scale of 1-10, where are you at with Carson right now? 1= I want him BENCHED, he is done, never want to see him start another game for us. Flaws have only gotten worse, no improvements, there is no reason to play him other than sunken cost fallacy. 6= Faith shaken, but no use in benching him considering circumstances. Change external factors and hope for improved Carson in 2021, if no changes, then it's time for Hurts. 10= I have total faith in Carson as our franchise QB who will be with us a long time. This is just a slump, many QBs have gone through them. 2. Under what circumstances, if any, would you want to see healthy Carson benched in favor of Hurts in 2020? (assuming you're not already there) 3. What would you like to see happen going forward at QB/with Carson (within what you would consider realm of possibility)? 4. If you're thinking Carson is the guy until at least 2021, what do you think is the most important change that needs to be made heading into 2021 for his sake? 5. If you are over Carson, under what circumstances would you welcome taking a QB in 2021 draft? Would you need to see Hurts play, and be unimpressed, or would you still want to go QB even if we never see Hurts or he plays solid? (Obviously if he plays great, there is little question what to do) Wentz's contract has an "out" after 2021 where we would only eat up $24M in dead cap for cutting/trading him. Hurts is under contract through 2023, and becomes a UFA after (no option like most QBs have since he was 2nd rounder). Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields and Trey Lance are the early big 3 QBs of the 2021 class. The winless Jets, Texans and Bengals have harder schedules than us going forward. The winless Broncos, Falcons, Vikings and Giants have easier schedules than us going forward. Bolded could very well be in market for QB come draft day. Unlikely we would be in position for Lawrence, all jokes aside but that tie really did take us out of the #1 pick unless we only win 1 game in all likelihood, but we could be in range of Fields or Lance.
