    Art to Vrabel, before trade: "I know something that you dont know!"

    Only thing holding is us back from potentially being the best offense in the league is Tannehill's terrible chemistry with Julio. He's on the money with AJ but constantly off target with Julio.

    I don't think Julio is 100%. Maybe a step slow because of the hammy still. He is so good he can still make some plays but the best is yet to come IMO. Tannehill's chemistry is fine with other WRs he hasn't played with before like Reynolds, Johnson and Rogers.

    Julio doesn't seem 100%. I think the announcers even mentioned that. But his presence alone opens up the field for everything else. And he's clearly still healthy enough to still be a weapon.3

    I'm more concerned that we haven't got Firkser involved more. After his play last season, I was sure that he would be of a focal point on offense, but he's only seen 15 targets in the 5 games that he has suited up. 9 of those targets came against NY and Jacksonville with Julio and AJ being out.

    I thought I was being real cute taking firkser with the last pick in most of my fantasy leagues. It turned out to be not so cute lol

    Yeah. I don't do fantasy football, but I obviously follow football. Buddy of mine is the complete opposite. We grab dinner early September and he gives me his phone and has me draft his team.

    Last round, I tell him that the Tits throw to the TE a ton and we let Jonnu walk. Asked if he was cool taking Firkser as a flyer. Yup.

    Nope.

    Julio is seeing less than 50% of our snaps. He's clearly on a count each game, and therefore isnt at 100% fitness.

    Firkser has been non-existent. So many thought he would benefit from the other weapons.

    Jonnu wasn’t a very big part of our offense outside of the first 4 weeks of the year.

    He’s barely doing anything in NE either. Especially for that payday he got.

    Our offense is coming around. Downing is doing a lot of different things than Art did and we are seeing the adjustment period for the team.

    Jonnu reminds me of jared cook all the physical tools but just never puts it all together.

    Sidenote I always wondered why we didnt give jonnu more handoffs. When we did he seemed to do well
