  • J-Balls and Herzy will give it a go this week



    Jake Ballard and Mark Herzlich WILL participate on a limited basis in practice tomorrow, which is a huge step towards playing this Sunday.




    Getting Ballard back is more improtant, but Herzlich back cant hurt either for STs. Blackburn is our starter now.

    Remember early in the year when everyone hated Reese for not over paying for Boss?

    Well now this team actually misses their FA TE. I hope he can play because say what you want about his speed, he is always open. If he just has an ability to get open or teams leave him wide open, he gets open.

      Hindsight is always 20/20

      But in all seriousness, I would like Ballard to be our TE for a while.
      They said Brady and the Patriots couldn't be beat, Eli did it twice, how's that for Elite?

        Just saying, Reese played this great. I mean they didn't have the money to sign people anyway, but he stayed put with Osi and let guys go that wanted to much.

            I think the way our offense is, we can make TE work without top-tier talent.

              Boss is still better then J-Balls, but Jake is the best TE we have. In fact, he is the only true TE we have. So he is wanted by the mere fact he is the only TE we have. Beckum? Come on... Bear? Nah.. Ballard is the only option really.

                Not sure about that. Too me, it looks like he pissed all that money he saved away signing Baas. Boothe is better then Baas. Put Petrus back at LG. Baas can not run block. He stands DTs up but cant push them. But at least he can snap where Boothe can not.

                  The numbers Ballard has put up are similar to the ones Boss put up last year and for much less money.

                  By the way, I like Boss, but I don't know how much longer he will last in the NFL. Did you see the hit he took again yesterday?

                    Yeah I think he paid to much for Bass, but they are a passing team even I wish they would run more. So for that he is good at his job.

                      +1....loved the guy while he was here but far too many concussions and he hit the jackpot in Oakland, there was no way we could've matched that offer. Ballard is a solid run blocker and he's good at getting open and making great catches as well, he's just slow.

                        Tuck you - please explain how Boss is much better then ballard. Ballard had 38 catches and 604 yards in 14 games thats better then any year boss has ever had - EVER and thats in 2 less games then Boss - so again why is he clearly better?

                        I would give you that Boss at this point in his career may be a better blocker but Ballard will improve and is a much bigger guy.

                        Stats dont lie.

                          Ballard also had more big plays than Boss did last year.

                              i thought pascoe played pretty well, and WARE only had one sack.. so he helped on the double team.
