    I absolutely agree with this if Jim Schwartz has a brother who is an offensive genius.

    I agree…Schwartz has been a difference maker working with the front 4 to generate pressure without blitzing.

    Interesting conversation but the main thing holding the offense back has been injuries across the board. The OL maybe the biggest. Last game we saw three plays close together where three separate OL guys got raped. Quiz, Radunz and Brewer. The most solid guy all year has been Jones (a guy some wanted replaced a few years ago).

    After we lost Henry we had a patchwork of RBs where Downing was struggling to find some consistency. We have had different WRs in and out of the lineup all year and soon as we seem to have something that works a guy gets injured. Tannehill has struggled at times and it is amplified by the OL struggles.

    Either way take any OC in the league and force him to make do with the personnel inconsistencies we have had and it isn't easy. Instead of giving Downing credit for making the changes we needed to make to pull out the win the tendency is to bash him for the bad. Both coordinators have done a pretty good job getting the team to 10 wins all things considered.

    Defense I agree but offense the play calling has not been the same. We miss Arthur there. The fact we do not run more RPO and boot legs is on OC. Horrible first down play calling.

    Glad we got 10 wins lets win out and get Henry back and I think we make some noise in AFC. Henry comes back we going to the bowl!

    Dude every time we run the boot Tannehill gets sacked or has to throw it away immediately. Teams have figured that play out. Back side defender goes right for RT17 every time.

    I’m old enough to remember when people were asking for Arthur Smith’s head in year one after we lost Matt LaFleur to Green Bay.
