    Is anyone not seeing the problem developing on offense? We are trying to force CJ way too much. Everyone knows we are going to run him and we should. However, we need to allow VY and the passing game to present a balance that will free up CJ to do his thing. The lack of passing the ball down field does not create space for CJ. We have talent in the passing game that we need to utilize in order to open things up. Where is Cook? He needs to be on the field more. The lack of passing makes me wonder about the confidence level the coaches have in VY. I say drop CJ’s carries buy 6-10 and through some deeper routes, especially to cook in the seam, and CJ will have more success.

    With no passing game, CJ is just another running back. And it's not Vince's fault. Game one the guy goes long right off the bat- touchdown.

    Somehow our coaching regresses. There's no growth. No apparent evidence that our coaches actually see what works and use it again. It's sad, really.

    We could have a team of Vince Young, Chris Johnson, Desean Jackson, Antonio Gates, and Brandon Marshall... we'd still run the same predictable, half-effective vanilla offense.

    IMO.....VY and Cook have shown very little progress. They will not be stars in the NFL. Why should Titans coaches have confidence in average to below average players?

    Day in - day out the coaches watch these guys. No matter what your views or opinions may be, I'm staying with coaches/management decision over Duece, Alex or JC (Fisher haters). If those guys were so smart, they'de be coaching in the league.

    There were a couple of deep shots called last week. On one I remember, Young just missed Washington who had a step on whoever was covering him.

    Cook has shown "something" almost every time they've allowed him to play.

    Hard to do something while on the sidelines.

    Funny how we only put Cook in when we need passing yards. (like the ends of games vs the Cardinals and vs the Steelers). What does that say? Two things: Jared Cook is very valuable if you want to pass. And the other... Jeff Fisher doesn't want to move the ball through the air.

    Just another player going to waste in a crappy scheme.

    Vince has looked very good throwing the deep ball. The few opportunites he's gotten he's always had good throws. It might actually be one of his passing strengths.

    We have to start throwing more if we want to win in the playoffs. Vince has the arm and the decision making capabilities to help us beat any defense. We've just got to let him do his thing and get off his back after every mistake. Other quarterbacks throw tons of interceptions but you don't see them getting yanked from games and immediately thrown under the bus.

    Quarterback's aren't made in 1 game. They have to develop. We've yet to see how far Young really has progressed.

    Either Fish is gonna get the stick out and let his explosive players explode or we'll end the season by not being able to score in the first playoff game or by missing the playoffs entirely.


    30 times up the middle won't work against real teams.

    This conservative, scary offense is only gonna cost us when it matters.
