Boise Falcon Fan Posted December 19, 2022 Share Posted December 19, 2022 First, I would like to eat crow on believing that DR should have started all year! AS OBVIOUSLY made the right call, and it was VERY apparent yesterday that AS had been doing the right thing going with Mariota all season. I will take my crow with a side of rice pilaf please! 🤣 Now, I am not giving up on DR, because I liked what I saw in preseason. However, he looked REALLY bad, even for a rookie. Pocket awareness was sketchy, accuracy was awful, and his decision making left a lot to be desired. Dude should have had about 3 picks. All that being said, it was super obvious that the WR's are not good. They didn't seem to get any separation, and that makes it really hard for a QB. DR still deserves a chance, but I was hoping for just an average start for a QB. He wasn't even close to that. If he gives us an average start, we win that game yesterday. Heck, we almost came back to tie it with this pitiful start. DR did nothing yesterday to inspire faith in his future as the starting QB of the Falcons, and I am left to wonder again why I continue to have unreal expectations. He is a rookie after all, but he didn't do anything yesterday to show that he is something for us to hang our hats on. I do not envy TF at all for trying to rebuild this roster into a contender. This team needs so much help. 4LoveoftheGame, GritsPittz, Caddieman and 11 others 6 2 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
