League shut him down.  Pretty obvious who they want to win this game.

The way this game has gone has been similar to the Eagles/Saints game last week, except the Saints have been limited to FG's. 2nd quarter will determine this game imo.

If the Rams score coming out of the halftime break that likely determines the winner.

If Steph Curry missed a few shots to start the game, his coach wouldn't take him out of the game. If Mike Trout went 0-3, are you saying that you should take him out?

 

...just sayin.

Really hard to make this kind of comparison given how different each sport is.

But let's say Steph goes on an 0-for-10 run and someone like Klay goes 7-for-10 from the field. You might not take Steph out of the game, but you'd look for Klay as your first option over Steph.

In baseball a single player only gets up to the plate 1 out of every 9 at-bats for his team (not to mention if a player is taken out he's done for the night). So it's completely set of circumstances. If instead baseball had something that allowed one guy to go up to the plate more than another guy, and Trout goes is 0-5 and another guy is 3-5, you might give the 3-5 guy a few more at-bats than Trout.

Anyway, point is they were just kept going with what was working (Anderson) over what wasn't working (Gurley) for a little while. Doesn't mean Gurley's done for the night (seeing more snaps now), but just giving him a bit of a break.

Not understanding why Drew Brees is being taken from under center for Hill.

I don't understand using Hill at QB for anything except short yardage. And none of those calls so far with Hill at QB have been short yardage. Maybe Payton is setting something up in the future if things get desperate.

They use him running to set up him throwing but the issue is he can’t throw.

If it is this loud in the Superdome today, then why doesn't the crowd do it every single game of the year?  I get that it's a playoff game and people are amped, but they should use this advantage to it's fullest extent all the time.

Wasn’t the call literally before the Hill TD a short-yardage snap to Hill at QB?
