When Gawn & Hogan are in the team & playing well, we have far more capacity to reduce the burden on Weid and include him in the team for the sake of their development. With Gawn out and Hogan out of form, we don't have that capacity, and it puts more responsibility on Weid that he's not ready for yet.
I'm not a huge rap for Pedo, but while Gawn is out, we need Pedo's 12-15 possessions and good contests more than we need Weid's development. We all know that Weid's ceiling is far higher than Pedo's will ever be, but at the moment, what we need as a minimum is 12-15 possessions and good contests and Weid is a long way off .
Also, Tiges will match up Rance on Weid, so that he can zone off & take intercept marks & double-team Hogan in marking contests, knowing Weid isn't good enough to make him accountable. Rance struggles against us because we force him to be much more accountable one-on-one against Hogan & Watts. Rance is dangerous only when he lines up on the weakest forward and doesn't have to be accountable.
How will Rance BOG help Weid's development?
