    That has a lot to do with it. His play calling is mediocre between the 20's but just plain awful inside the red zone. We don't have a big smash mouth running back yet we continue to try to pound the ball. When he does call a pass it's usually pretty vanilla and easily defended.

    Absolutely... do people remember when we had the "no name defense?" sometimes it's about scheming, and play calling to your players strengths, instead of getting your roster to fit the scheme. That's what great coaches do, put their players in a position with a chance to win. The GM builds the roster, the coaches, enables them to succeed. That's what Denver did with Tebow, and the Jets are to dumb to get. and perhaps us.. because there are many players on our roster people want to see, but they don't "practice well.'

    We can talk about talent. It's not going to change this week, next week, or next month. The only area that can be adjusted in order to produce wins is coaching and scheming.

    Unfortunately that hasn't changed much the whole season. We just keep running the same old plays over and over and are shocked when the opponents blow it up. That's the biggest reason we've lost the past three. We are predictable and way too easy to defend. I don't know how much of that falls on Philbin or if it's mainly Sherman.

    He is handcuffed in the redzone... We run more in the redzone it seems.

    Honestly i think we are in the red zone for 4 quarters. We do not have a wr that can crack the top level of the defense and get behind coverage. We don't have that burner on the edge that makes defenses drop the safetys on the back end. This forces us into the dink and dunk offense we have been using since henne was here and everybody crowded the line again the r and r express.(aka check down chad syndrome) Defenses crowd the line against this offense because they know they can compress the field. Opposing db's know they only have to cover 15 to 20 yards. This means there is a huge chuck of the field they do not have to defend. The opposing defense is free to blitz and load up against the running game because they know we can't hurt them deep.

    Point is the Dude has missed some Throws, and where is the scramble? How about a screen to Bush. What about Marlon Moore?
    Good QB's make Plays! I still think Tannehill is going to be good. We blew 2 games because of not making plays. Winning fixes everything. Hartline was all world just a few weeks ago man! This is the team we got, and we all know they could have a better record. Excuses are for sissies. 10 Games in he should have more then 6 TD passes. Bottom Line.
    Sitting on the fence is for sissises too...

    Why does Tannehill only have 6 td's?

    I know Finheaven loves to blame the coaches and not the players but I just think they're dealing with the cards they've been dealt. We have a rookie QB and limited offensive weapons. Please tell me folks here aren't looking for Sherman to open it up. That could get even worse. This offense should probably slow things down and get more conservative.
    Please don't look dumb by predicting a 30+ point week for the Dolphins.

    ATL has playmakers.
    More accurately, Atlanta didn't win Arizona lost it. It wasn't because Atlanta has playmakers, which they do, it was because Arizona does NOT have a quarterback.

    We're not going to win any of the remaining games with this conservative offense. So if we're going down, wouldn't you rather go down swinging? A 14 point loss isn't any different than a 3 point loss. Plus, who knows, we might actually elevate our game due to the creativity and start to win again.
