Awe "Tight End" my favorite position!
Not 100% sure your point. You are right, we look nothing like GB spreading the ball around the past two years. And what has been our record? 7-13 over that period of time. What was GBs record in 2011 when they didn't spread the ball around as much in 2012? 10-6...as compared to 15-1 when it was spread around more in 2012.

Nannee and Armstrong have both been an epic failure!
Your theory on targeting Marshall so much sounds great, if it were only true. When did Miami start winning games last year? When they stopped targeting Marshall so much. Miami was 1-6 last year when targeting Marshall 9 times or more and 5-4 when targeting him less than 9 times.
