  • “Helmets”

    It is only me or is it ridiculous that the backup QB wears his helmet the whole game yet the starting QB takes his of when the defense is on the field.

  • “Intense Chargers Game”

    Hi Michael,

    This is Tommy from Chattanooga which moved to Atlanta. The game with the Chargers was very intense. Ryan Tannehill looked very concise and confident. I haven’t felt “NOT” nerves about this offense in a long time. It seems that we truly played complementary football. All I can say about Jeffery Simmons is “WOW he’s a beast”.

    I have 2 questions and love to hear your responses.

    1. Is it too early to step on the Tannehill train?
    2. I feel that the offense is still a little shaky; could it be the offensive coordinator in experiences or are we seeing Mike Vrabel shortcomings.

    Keep up the good work!!!!

    Tommy

  • “QB”

    Any chance TL 77 can try not to get a penalty against us in an important situation, this goes for the whole offense. We can’t move the ball 10 let alone 15.

    For the QB spot, I would run with MM 8 for the remainder of the season as he will turn it around or he won’t and we will get the low pick.

    I would have a quick hook at the half if it’s not going well, what do you think about the quick hook if MM 8 does start?

News

  • Soundbite of the week - Marcus Mariota
  • 1st round draft pick Jeffery Simmons started practicing this week. Might be ready for Sunday, but will most likely see limited action if playing.
  • With the benching of Mariota, is his future over in TN? What team will sign him (Dolphins, Buccaneers, Patriots, Chargers, Bengals, Steelers)
  • Who is at fault?
    • Offensive Line - Lewan suspension; finding a RG (Pamphile, Douglas, Davis); lead the league in negative plays; 10 - False Starts (#3 in the NFL), 9 - Holding (#12 in the NFL); Keith Carter - is he ruining this line?
    • Arthur Smith - no creativity in play calling; lacks a sense of when to call the screen pass; doesn’t stick with the run; over-thinks the opening drive play-calling
    • Mariota - 2nd guessing all decisions; too concerned about sticking with a play even though it’s not working; can’t find open receivers if they aren’t the first 2 reads; poor pocket presence; scrambles out of the pocket right into oncoming rushers
    • Wide Receivers - No consistent separation from top players; Davis (drafted #5 overall), Humphries, Sharpe are all disappointing; only Brown is having a good season 
    • Mike Vrabel - poor clock management skills; too much confidence in an unproven coordinator and not enough in the starting QB; defensive-minded to a fault; doesn’t appear to have the skillset to fix the problem; 
    • Officials - penalties are WAY up in the league; no clear-cut way of reading an official’s style; the entire league is on their heals trying to understand the interpretation of the new rules
    • Fans Expectations - Yes, Mariota is a #2 overall pick and should lead this team, but with the # of coordinators, # of hits taken, injuries, and a steadily worsening offensive line, we might want to give the guy a break

Stupid Question of the Week

  • If Tannehill struggles in a similar fashion, do you go back to Mariota?

  • “O Line Problems”

    Allen gets minutes to throw and Mariota does not even get seconds.

    Mariota is not the problem, a new QB won't make any difference.

  • Sorry about the break between question, been completing a home bathroom renovation.

    Looks like we have the players but what can we as fans do to keep them on track, they seem to get a quality win and then just believe the hype.

    Once I understand but this has been happening for a couple of years and they don't seem to be learning.
