It's probably a combination of bad blocking by our offensive line, and Tannehill not having much experience yet at the QB spot (verbalizing the snap count), as to why we are not getting much yardage running the ball. I think our RB's also need to step it up. But the Browns seemed to be jamming the line of scrimmage and daring us to throw it. Why doesn't Sherman work in a screen pass every now and then?
but in preseason, teams were jumping offsides in bunches in every game. I dont think its cadence. I think its just more personell and set up. RT is in shot gun alot so when he is not and you have two in the backfield or Clay at H-back, they tend to think run.

I tend to give Browns credit for stopping our weakness. yip yip yahoo. we won.
I see what OP is tking about. But Tannehill does mix it up with a single GO or GO-GO, also some silent count worked in etc. it also works in the Fins advantage for teams to think they have an "up" on snap count. I've seen plenty times Tannehill going with a loud GO-GO and watch entire defense move giving away the play, check off and call the audible.
"What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
Someone prove me wrong!
That's pretty interesting, I don't watch enough of the tape to have an opinion but unless someone can prove thats not the case I think you might be on to something.
I thought it was the terrible line play that killed the running game.
I'm watching the condensed version on Game Rewind and so far through the 1st quarter every single time Tannehill is under center and he says GO GO it's a run. Gonna watch the rest of the game to see how it goes.
Make that every time in the whole first half he says GO GO when under center and it's a run. Starting the 3rd quarter now...
