She also has zero interest in the team except for the profit they make. She gave Carroll a 5 year extension so he could babysit the franchise so she wouldnt have to. Thats a huge problem. Pete has absolutely nobody he answers to and Jody isnt smart enough to recognize if changes need to be made. In the big scheme of things, she's a terrible owner. As soon as the team quits turning a profit, she'll sell.
Changes *were* made.
Cable was fired when is OL wasn't working and was replaced by Solari. Two years in we're writing him off? It's not easy to re-vamp an OL while breaking the bank for a QB. You can't just hire all the free agents out there.
We let Russ cook but Schottenheimer wasn't up to the task. He was fired and replaced with a more innovative passing game coordinator.
In LA, Waldron oversaw Jared Goff who got rid of the ball a half second quicker than Wilson, threw the ball an average 1.5 yards shorter (average air yards per pass), but had only 0.3 fewer yards per pass attempt than Wilson holding the ball forever and throwing hail Marys.
This move is *specifically* designed to protect Russ and to use him more effectively. Defensive linemen run the 40 in around 4.5 to 5 seconds. That means every half second they cover around 4 yards. If Wilson can release a half second sooner, on average, he's going to take fewer hits.
Waldron schemes receivers open. We know the damage Metcalf and Lockett can do when they get the ball in space. We brought in Everett who can play running back, wide receiver, and tight end, because he complicates things for defenses which is part of getting Lockett and Metcalf open.
We even brought in an excellent guard, retained our center, and are shopping for additional OL right now.
You haven't seen the result of these changes on the field, and you're already writing it all off. That's ridiculous. You want change, and change got made. Now see how it does, and THEN judge it.
