    The offense turned a big corner, was that due to Art? Tannehill?
    But if true, and yesterday's display was because of Art not focusing and not being able to adapt? We're better off without him.

    And we need a staff overhaul starting with a DC.

    The Ravens made some nice adjustments on offense at halftime, sadly we made no adjustments at the half. In fact the play calling yesterday got worse as the game went on.

    Art went away from what was working early (quick passing / play action) and kept stubbornly running Henry into a brick wall. By far his worst called game as OC.

    Where did the empty set quick pass plays to Firkser go? Everyone knows Patrick Queen isn't great in pass coverage but we stopped targeting him.
    Where was the RPO read option stuff with Tannehill 'keeper' runs?
    Where were the sweep / toss plays?
    No screens to Batson / anyone fast?
    Try an end around with AJ like we did a year ago?
    No use of Evans' speed?
    No designed plays for Davis or Jonnu?
    Felt like we hardly ever passed on first down

    We used a flea-flicker against Detroit and last year had Henry throw from the Wildcat. Not saying they are the answer or high percentage plays but compare that to this game... we couldn't get more imaginative than to run Henry for no gain every play in heavy set formations then get Tannehill killed on 3rd and long blitzes.

    The real irony was when Henry has his only productive run and Art then went away from it for 2 low percentage plays on 2nd and 3rd and short, then punted!

    Smith called a run on the second down. Tanny changed it at the line and later admitted the Ravens D fooled him.

    Doesn't sound like Tannehill will miss Art

    It is because they feel with these tools any competent OC should have success. I am not sure they are wrong. But I get your point too.

    Great post man. The offense really was atrocious and you do well pointing out all the things we failed to even attempt. The lack of creativity was obvious and abysmal.
