This team has a lot of good players, but we need a true superstar “face of the franchise” player to win us games like that.
St. Brown is amazing, but he’s not at that level. We think Hutch can be that, but he’s not yet. Jamo has that potential but he’s just never on the field. We don’t know if Gibbs can be that because we don’t give him the ball enough.
Bijan is winning games for the Falcons. Parsons is winning games for the Cowboys. Burrow and Chase win games for the Bengals all the time. The 49ers have superstars all over the field. Jalen Hurts wins games for the Eagles. Mahomes obviously wins games for the Chiefs. Josh Allen wins games for the Bills. Tyreek Hill wins games for the Dolphins. Justin Jefferson wins games for the Vikings. Who wins games for us?
The offensive line?
I can’t really remember the last game we won where I sat and thought “we won that game because of him” with “him” being a specific player on our team. Who won us the first game? Branch? I mean yeah I guess. He was just kind of in the right place at the right time though as opposed to making the play himself. Kerby Joseph won us games against the Packers last season, but other than that our wins are more of a team effort. The win just kind of happens.
This team is good. I know we lost today; we’ll be fine. But for this team to take the step from good to great, and into a true contender, we need superstar level players IMO.
I mentioned this early today if we should have drafted parsons over sewell. I think parsons have more of an impact. Again sewell is dominant but pass rushing is a superior premium to have.
Honestly tho parsons wouldn’t be as dominant here tho. AG is a terrible coach. He doesn’t put players in best position to succeed. Hutch playing dt is foolish. He has completely ruin Houston
I’m surprised you make it so simplistic. I think it’s nuanced. You want the last possession. You want Riley inside, what 42? 45? Jared works best across the middle of the field. Ben’s calling the plays. Jared’s making the decisions. I really don’t think Dan was directing anybody to play for the tie. We got stopped on 4th and fortunately we’re able to not give the ball back to Seattle with any time. That was definitely part of the plan and for good reason.
