Last year, most here were not expecting a whole lot. Most believed that Tannehill would take another year to develop, with many young players, and many new ones. It was gonna take another year to fit in all the pieces to contend in 2014. What happened?
On O- Tannyhill did improve. The OL was a frakin disaster. Keller went down, and we were screwed at TE. Wallace and RT did not click. The run game was non-existent. Our new kicker was not as good as the old one. We had one hell of a time in scoring points.
On D- Wake was injured. Our LB's were horrible. Jones was lost. Our 2nd CB was serviceable.
Draft- It was basically a waste last year.
Coaching- Philbin was questionable. Few had any respect for Sherman.
What Really Happened?
Well, we won 8 games, beat playoff teams. and came within a win of the playoffs. This was all in spite of all of the above problems, without even bringing Bully Gate into it.
Hmmm, when considering all this, I'm thinking we did pretty good.
This year, we have to expect Tannyhill to be better, along with the OL, Wallace, and the run game. Hard to be worse.
And one would have to also expect improvement from our 2nd CB, Jones, and our LB's. Hard to be worse.
So, maybe, just maybe, we could be pretty good this year. Just a thought.
