    We aren’t getting either from Downing. Haven’t all season. The team has won in spite of terrible offense. Our entire offense to start the season was to run Derrick Henry into the ground to the point he could no longer play. That’s not an offensive coordinator, that’s a guy latching onto a superstar, trying it ride his coattails to success.

    I'm sure it's killing Henry to watch this offense implode.

    No excuses, other teams are dealing with injuries, Cleveland lost Chubb and Hunt and Johnson filled in with big games, SF lost RBs and Eli Mitchell filled in with decent games

    Peterson is older, out of the game for a bit..but Foreman should be having bigger games. Our OL is pathetic for the talent in it and Tannehill and AJ need to step up as well

    No other team is as decimated as we are with injuries so not sure how that’s an excuse. I mean we are about to shatter the record for most players used in a season. Our other problem is Downing is an absolute joke of a offense coordinator

    It is interesting that we lead the league in TDs on our first 2nd half possession, but struggle opening the game.

    I'm shocked that the line is as close as it is....my expectation is that it will get bigger once injury reports are made available.

    With our lack of offensive weapons, it will be very very hard to put up points. The defense is gonna have to win this one for us, but my fear is that they will have to play soooo many plays that they will wear down late in the game.

    Yea because having better players isn't a factor in the NFL. Got it. AJ Brown had 5 catches for 48 yards when he went out hurt. Minus Julio and Johnson we were down to our 4th, 5th and 6th WRs out there plus no Derrick Henry. But hey, a good coach should still be just as effective. Got it.

    My god, you love putting words in the mouth of other posters, don't you? He said "adjust" not "be as productive".

    Doesn’t take much to be greater than Evans honestly playing one offensive series without injury gave him more production than Evan’s has had in his career. Hillard did look impressive though.

    Freeman is not Henry but if any RB he should fit the same role...we have the most injuries is an excuse. Next man up speaks volumes for our depth, Downing hasn't been great true, but neither has Tannehill or the OL
