We have pretty much dissected every player in every way possible. Now, it's time for the coaches to go under the microscope. This is a very tuff thing to do with a new coaching staff bringing in a new system, with players not of his choosing However, I'm sure Phinatics will be up to the task.
We're gonna break this up to O and D from last year, and then a look ahead.
Last year, we threw for 3425 yards, a 199 yard per game average, and 13 TD's
In 2011, amazingly, we threw for 3425 yards, a 193 average, and 20 TD's
Last year, we ran for 1802 yards, 112 a game, a 4.1 average, and 15 TD's.
In 2011, we ran for 1987 yards, 124 a game, a 4.2 average, and 11 TD's.
That's it for the stats. All things considered, I think they look pretty good, and a little surprising.
Now for the fun part in everyone's "eyeball tests" and opinions on how the coaches did on O. There were many who questioned Sherman on some of his play calling. I do understand but, with what he had to work with, I thought he did well
The bigger question for me is how the coaches developed the players we had, and the new ones over the course of the year. This is where a big difference can be made. So, my main question is what players got better or worse from what your eyeballs told you?
I'll start with a couple on both sides.
I thought Jerry got better, and Tannehill got better almost every week. On the other side, I thought Fasano was worse, and Bess the same. They are both gone.
