Glad we could sub him out to watch Howard throw a duck out there.

After 1.5 quarters of playing time we know absolutely nothing more than prior to him stepping foot on the field.

This is true. Bringing Lewis in was clearly scripted, can we deduce from the fact that they didn't let him run or throw that they don't think he's as good as Will at these things?

we should deduce (and consider it something we learned) that but I don't think many people will the next time Will throws a pick

I am amazed they played Jaren as much as they did in a close, losable, game.

I think we also learned Jaren is pretty close to Will based on this. Like he's worse, but not much worse!

I suppose it was a healthy signal to Howard that he needs to take care of the ball.

I thought this too, hell of a way to send a message

I also think it was a "crap" we're one hit away from having to play this kid, we need to get him in a game.

Under. I think this game stays close despite whatever Howard does. With that said, coaches won't pull Howard unless we get down by 14+ and he has turned the ball over at least once.

Under. My rationale is exactly the same as Apathy's.

I am glad we won the game and Will looked better over time... but I have to admit that I was a bit steamed when we were running the ball well with Jaren handing the ball off to Deuce then we put Will back in for the following progression.  1.) Will hesitantly up the middle behind 2 running backs for nada.  2.)  Will throwing 5 yards away from an open receiver.  3.)  Will hesitantly up the middle behind 2 running backs for nada.  I'm not too proud to say I had to walk away for a few minutes.  LOL

Classic 3rd quarter Messfense, we've seen it for 2 and a half years now.

I was surprised they did it when they did last Saturday.  I think they'll be more careful with it on the road.  I would go under 1.5 and not terribly surprised if we don't see him at all.  I expect it to be low scoring where mistakes are more likely to decide the game than points.

I think we only see him if we blow them out or are getting blown out.

I think this is what happens unless Howard and the offense are doing incredibly well.

If he sees the field it’ll be a two quarterback look imo.

Define 'incredibly well'.

I won't say passes the eye test.  But i'd say if he gets three drives in the 1st quarter we are scoring on 2, and the third one needs to have the ball moving beyond a 3 and out.

He needs to get rid of the negative plays, the 3 and outs where we don't move the ball.  I'd define incredibly well scoring 14 points with another drive moving the ball.  Howard would basically have to force the issue that you couldn't bring in Lewis due to the offense working so well.  I don't see that happening though, that's a huge ask.

Hopefully he's just saying this so Lewis can mentally be prepared to step in should Howard falter.
