Remember, he went through the motions with Matt Flynn, so Joe had to be likely aware that his fledgling career would be rising or falling with his designated guy under center.
    Exactly. Why would he? We don't know. But I'll bet you there are some very compelling reasons. At least, they are compelling to Philbin.

    I'm not saying the QB coaching is good or bad, but I am suggesting that we just don't know how well he's being coached.
    God bless, I'll hang up and listen.

    Bring back Gary Stevens to be OC. He was pretty good but he also had Dan.

    I think Sherman should step aside and let Ken O'Keefe become the Offense Coordinator. I feel that O'Keefe could do a great job as the coordinator (didn't think about it until I read the article), he was the coordinator for Iowa, no they didn't win a National Championship, but they were always a solid team offensively while he was there.

    I don't think we get rid of Sherman all together, he would be an excellent GM for us, he knows the system which would allow him to select the best type of players for the offense. He still knows some of the college players coming out, since he is only 2 years removed from the college ranks. He was a decent GM/Head Coach in Green Bay, I think his down fall is in coaching and not in getting the right players for the system. He couldn't do any worse than Mr. Ireland, just saying.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all Finheaven.

    I'm sorry but that linked article was terrible. Why does everyone with a keyboard think they are an online expert? I agree Sherman needs to go, but it's much more complex than cadence. Blaming cadence is like blaming the structural integrity of the twin towers as to the reason they fell.

    The point is also moot, they obviously changed things up with the cadence in the last two games. He should criticize how long it took them to change

    We don't have a single "biggest issue." We have many.

    The Evolution of the Tannehill Booster

    First Stage: Tannehill is going to be a star in this league.
    Second Stage: Tannehill is better than RGIII, Wilson, etc.
    Third Stage: Tannehill is better than some other AFC East quarterback except Tom Brady.
    Fourth Stage: Tannehill isn't the only problem on the team.

    I agree with this. What evidence is there that Tannehill isn't developing? I'm no expert but I have seen "experts" show examples that his technique is quite good even under pressure. The deep ball troubles to Wallace can be attributed as much to ridiculous play design as anything as CK pointed out in a recent bleacher report article. He has regressed in his pocket awareness but he's on pace for numbers we haven't seen from a QB since Marino.

    The constant for the last 5 years of poor offense is Jeff Ireland. We have changed players and coaches. We actually had something good with B Marshall/R Bush but of course that was not allowed to continue.
    I would start by kicking him to the curb first.
