    Blaine on the radio destroyed Art saying "it baffles the mind why Arthur Smith isn't game planning to get his best players more involved". He then continued to rip him over his game plans, which I believe we all acknowledge as piles of hot chit.

    Rightly so. I could be wrong, but I don’t think he designs any plays for individual players. He just throws random personnel on the field and runs a playbook that was handed to him. For example, having Kalif Raymond as your primary target on a crucial play late in the game yesterday....or throwing a fade route to Humphries in the end zone last week when you have 3 other receivers on the team that actually have the size to make that a mismatch

    I cant fault the owner or the staff for hiring Arthur Smith. He was brought it to try and help MM with consistency. I blame the organization for not doing its due diligence in drafting a QB with the #2 pick who was not and will not be an NFL caliber QB. With that said, we invested money, time, man power to try and make it work, but instead has set this organization back. We were handcuffed in riding this wave for the full 5 years to see if MM would get better. Now I expect to let MM go, Arthur Smith will also be let go and we will bring in a great OC with a veteran QB and a rookie QB. I think our window to win the SB is about the open and will lasts for a few years because we have a young defense.

    I get what you’re saying, and I agree they hired Art because they could use the same verbiage and playbook that Mariota was familiar with instead of starting over once again. But what’s the point in maintaining consistency in an offense that Mariota clearly couldn’t run and wasn’t suited for?

    Um.. Slats are a great way to minimize the weakness of the offensive life, get the ball out quick, and avoid pressure. I'd love to see specifically which play you are referring to, but I'm willing to bet the real problem was execution, not play call.

    Frankly, I'd like to see more slats and 3 step drop plays.

    They’re 7-2, last year they were 6-9 so a pretty nice turn around and Rogers is a future HOF’r, what’s your point?

    Fast forward this video below to 6:40 and you'll see what I'm talking about lmao. You sound to much like Vrabel. The issue is art smith, not Mariota not tanny. Mariota has proven he can win big games in this league against good teams. Heck we would have made it to 2 straight playoffs had they let him play week 17 last year

    They just got dominated by the chargers. Exactly how he coached us last year on offense. Sometimes great play calling and schemes for games then other games he was like a lost puppy

    The OL is still the biggest obstacle for our offense to over come....no OC or QB is going to look good when the OL is continually making penalties that put you in long yardage situation or causing nice gains to be negated....and besides the penalties the mental mistakes that the OL are making that are causing plays to be blown up...

    on the Poe sack this week we had Lewan Saffold and Douglas against Poe and an outside rusher...Saffold gives Douglas no help and Poe destroys Tanny... what is an OC/QB to do when the line plays like garbage.

    When Tanny has had time he has been very accurate with the ball. I really believe that this weekend the OL is going to have their best game of the year and our offense will get the job done.
