    Giants are having buyers remorse with OBJ...I'll give up a 1st for him. This offense needs an enema. We need guys that are more fired up to win. I'll take him and his salary IDC

    OBJ and Corey Davis with Taylor in the slot will open the running game seriously.

    Browns had him in for an interview, and offered him $5M for the year, or close to $5M

    The Cardinals, Ravens, Bills, and Packers have also been linked, however not sure if thats true or just a rumor.

    Except that'll we'll continue to run two tight end sets with 2 RBs in the backfield to protect Mariota. OBJ will straight up quit quicker than Rishard Matthews.

    That is what I've been wondering about. Dez is a DiBeast (Diva-Beast) and honestly with the way that Mariota is playing right now what would make any worthy WR come to Nashville? It's all about can this guy throw this ball to me? And honestly while a lot of you guys are not being honest, this is the best group of WR's we have had (Matthews included) in a Loooong time.While there are some things working against Mariota, we've seen him not make the throws more than ever which may be attributed to his hand and other injuries over the years but when he's healthy he improves So what's left to look at? It's not one thing it's multiple things. It starts with the Line. Mariota is always running and looks uncomfortable in the pocket.

    TE is another factor. Delanie was the ultimate safety valve. Smith is still struggling badly and may never get better. Other than that I just don't know. No clean pocket, no running lanes and bad throwing mechanics stand out the most to me.

    No one is opening up the running game until the line remembers what run blocking is imo

    Need to hurl it downfield more to open the run game up. Problem is Marcus is 9 of 23 on passes 15-yards or further this year

    no one is scared about getting burned deep so they pile in to the box.

    Marcus is the only thing that can fix this issue IMO

    Play calling can also help, and it hasn't. Spread out the field and force the defense to not stack the box. Work the short to intermediate game with quick rhythm throws which will open up the deep ball and the run game. LaFleur's play calling has left a lot to be desired thus far.
