Allen is not a FA.  Well, not that kind of a FA - he is an exclusive rights FA, we can sign him for nothing if we want.

After this year he might say hell with this...

Or they could have alterior motives that you don't know about..

What could those be? These coaches are coaching to try to secure employment next year either here or elsewhere.

I'm all in for Allen for the rest of this year and next year. I want to lose every game in that time frame. 

It's what it will take to get our next QB.

My vote is that they don't want to destroy him in a few meaningless games behind an OL that couldn't protect a QB against a Pop Warner defense.  Truth is, what is the point?  It is very likely that nobody who would be evaluating him now will be around, anyway. 

It has been a while since I have been as down on a team as I am this one.  In every single respect.  We have a handful of players who are worth moving forward with, but otherwise, burn it to the ground and press the reset button.

It doesn't matter who the QB is behind this line. That goes equally for people eager to start Grier, and anyone foolish enough to be rooting for a round 1 QB. 

Priority 1 this offseason has to be a stud O Line. If we trot out another patchwork line, it wouldn't matter if we were starting Drew Rodgers-Brady back there. A QB of any quality still need time.

If we're benching for poor play, it's going to be hard to find 11 guys to field, much less 22 to cover both sides of the ball,

If we're benching to see if we've got better, then you're just throwing a lamb to the wolves. There won't be anything left but blood specks and bits of beard fluff.

LoL with a injured riddled roster, musical chairs staff, and a hole to get yourself out of with a 5-7(before this game) record? 

 

Why change the QB with all this stacked against you? Also chemistry. At this point it's experience more than anything that Allen had over Grier. Albeit it ain't much. 

Making huge changes now will honestly not work. Even if they're coaching for jobs. The players have given up pretty much. Pack it in. Season was over weeks ago.

At this point, I'd be picking up some street free agent QB off the street and send him in to try and survive the next three games.

Kyle has something, but at the rate it's going all he has ahead is a date with a hospital and a long string of chiropractic visits. With a decent line and some good coaching, he might be okay, but no one could look good in this mess.

Yeah, no need to make any huge changes at this point. I mean, everything is going so well, right? Just stay the course.

Any coach with that type of mentality isn't worth employing even on an interim basis.

It's literally the only time to stay the course. 5-8 , rebuilding. Like literally the only time. It's a process and it's going to take a long time. Rivera is gone and right now like you said, people are auditioning. Whatever they do is up to them. 

 

Also, how do you know Tepper didn't ask Fewell to keep going with Allen? We don't know that.

Grier must be truly terrible and everyone within the organization already realizes it. That's the only conclusion I can arrive at to justify this decision.

that's probably true but no point in putting him behind a terrible OL and end up giving him David Carr syndrome
