Why Book is the man for the job

Fighting Irish of recent years:
- program all-time winningest coach
- iffy WR's
- good RB's
- high-level defense

2021 Saints:
- program all-time winningest coach
- iffy WR's
- good RB's
- high-level defense

Ian extends plays with his legs, creating more time for his WR's and TE's, but is also careful with the ball. He can throw on the run much better than Siemian or Hill.

Get over the fact that Book is a rookie. He played in a lot of big games with the Irish - and not against cupcakes - Irish always have a ton of tough games.

Trust Book just like we trusted Adebo.

This ain't hard.

Well, for the first time in years, the offense has been to blame for the 3 consecutive losses.

If Payton is the offensive guru we are led to believe, then this is his mess to sort out.

Re: Why Book is the man for the job

I leave it to the gurus. Pick the team left on the schedule that plays a style of defense Book is likeliest to succeed against and I say start him then. I'd also prefer a healthy and competent o-line please. Give me that and Kamara/Ingram II and let 'er rip with the kid from Notre Dame in the show.

Why not?

Agreed, I mean we are losing games anyway, we aren't going to lose anything else by letting him play.

Re: Why Book is the man for the job

There is also the GM aspect of this whole thing. We've been using a roster spot on him all year - because we didn't go through the practice squad transaction and risk losing him to another team.

If we had enough confidence to sacrifice a roster spot for him thus far, we should have enough faith in him to start a game. He might not be as ready as they'd like, but too bad ... we are in a league where Cooper Rush, Mike White, Tim Boyle and Mason Rudolph have started games this year. There is no need to walk on eggshells.

Why not? Because the Saints are still in a playoff position now sitting with the 7th seed. Other NFC teams keeps losing. As bad as Siemian is he still has NFL experience and I trust him more than a rookie when games still count. The only way he should see the field is if we are mathematically eliminated and that may not happen at all.

Siemian is our Rush, White, Boyle, and Rudolph.
