three questions

three questions 


i will make this brief  so  i will ask these three questions.

 # 1   did our idiot coach and  the idiot  Dan Henning    ruin Chad Henne 's career and wasted Ronnie and Ricky talents  ?

#2   would our franchize  be in better shape if we had landed  Fisher and Manning  . i mean would attendance be way better then it is now?

#3  what happens  if the attendance  is way worse at the next home game  will Mr Ross  light a fire under someone's seat or will it be Deja vu next season?

RE: three questions 


Seriously?

1. Chad Henne wasn't a blue chip prospect coming out of college. He had a tendency of staring down his receivers and not going through his progressions. If you ask me having Brandon Marshall on the field demanding the ball and intimidating the QB doesn't help a young QB learn to go through his progressions and get better. Ronnie Brown owes his career to Dan Henning and the wildcat. Lots of other teams ran it but nobody ran it better than Ronnie Brown. Injuries ruined Ronnie Browns career and Rickey Williams flip flopped on whether or not he wanted to be the focal point of the franchise so while I enjoyed watching Rickey Williams you certainly didn't want to hitch your wagon to him.

2. Duh...of course our franchise would be better if we landed Manning and any other coach. Manning wasn't coming here so whats the point of this question?

3. Its the end of a forgetable season and we have 2 home games against losing teams with nothing to play for but pride. Our offense is young and incomplete . I don't think Ross has been blindsided by how this season went. If Garrard had stayed healthy and Chad Johnson had kept his nose clean then yes I think Ross would have had some expectations but starting a rookie QB with a WR core that features...well nobody, I think Ross probably knew we weren't going to be playing meaningful games in December.

Year one was about laying a foundation. Tannehill showed promise. Hartline cemented himself as a solid #2 option. Bess continued to be a reliable option. Nobody else stepped up, and Bush regressed. The defense with stood a mid season colapse and remains a solid group built to run either a 4-3 or a 3-4 with the same personal making it a pretty versatile group. There is a lot to be pissed about and sure its the same thing every season where some people try to find positives to cling to and some people think we are the worst franchise in proffesional sports but honestly we are always going to be in this same spot until we land a playmaker on offense. Bush is good for one explosive play a game and then we are done. Nobody gets yards after the catch, not much in yards after contact for the backs, no sizzle. Looks like we are in for another civil war of pesimists vs. optomists, draft experts vs. madden GMs.

the purpose  of that quetion was to  see   if Manning  would have been  enough to help  with attendance  and to see  where we would be  if we had landed him   I think it interested me  because  we were kind  of good  at the first part of the season  and instead of us going  7-9 or 8-8   would we been good enough to make it to the playoffs.

sorry if my post sounded dumb but  I was sort of trying to make myself feel better because the Patriots are about to make  the playoffs  for umpteen time  while we have been spinning in a tailspin.

Re: three questions 


Manning would have been another bad decision for this franchise.  yeah, he's great, playing great and would have had us in the playoffs.  The problem is he would have been a short term solution.

Successful franchise commit to long term, sustainable success.  They aren't constantly changing QB's, coaches and GM's every 2 years like we are.  

I think we made the right choice by committing to developing a franchise QB.  Now we need to get him some weapons.

Winning cures all ills.   Our fans will come back when we start winning again.

RE: three questions 


Getting Manning may have been even better for us. I like tannehill but whose to say we wouldnt have drafted another qb later like russel wilson? That guy is good and yes I would rather have had us be in the playoffs this year, next year and have wilson as our future. All completely irrelavent now and I do think Tannehill will get better butone can dream.
