    He can add the Eagles to his list as they just tossed Peterson.

    Sure, but don’t tell me your focus is going to be the same if possible the biggest job interview of your career is a few hours away.
    Is it THE reason for our ineptitude? No but it’s still a big distraction, no matter what Smith may claim.
    Heck you could even argue he was coaching conservatively to avoid getting embarrassed right before the interview, though personally I think going conservative was on Fish.. Vrabel.

    Fishbel? Vraber?

    You make a good point that the OC is going to do what the HC asks him to do.

    FYI, LaFleur was 59% run on first down in '18. Smith was 62% last season and increased to 65% this season. These are up from 51% runs on first down under Mularkey who many felt was more conservative.

    Obviously, Henry really wasn't Henry until the second half of last season.

    During the game he was employed by the Titans as the OC, that should have been his only focus...if his mind wandered, he has no right to be a pro coordinator, what is he 16 yrs old?

    One thing that has always confused me is why we rarely use toss or sweeps? Get Henry going towards space. I'm assuming it's because of the injuries on the OL, but even last year and when we were healthy it never happened. I do think the success has been more attributed to the talent of the roster than the play calling. Honestly, I still don't like the play calling, we've just had the talent to be successful.

    We have the pieces to run any OCs offense. Tannehill can make the throws, Henry can run, AJ can catch, and a plethora of TEs. Art has benefited from that, no doubt. I dont dislike Art, but I think with the players we have on offense, he is very easily replaced right now.

    Let's be honest we have a pretty loaded offense it's not hard to be successful with our players. This dude is overrated and I hope he gets a HC job elsewhere, it's gonna be a **** show. Go get Doug.

    I really hope this isn’t one of those thread people come back with receipts, even though it’s just bound to happen.

    Shouldn’t be difficult to hire a better OC, it’s the DC position that worries me!
