ALSO rusty you obviously have not read any of my posts lately. every single one i say: yes, the offense needs to improve. yes, there is more the offense can do. redzone needs to be better. they need to get a consistent run game (which i agree w you on)
BUT the defense has let 3 mediocre to crap QBs Keenum, Campbell, and Tannehill throw for over 300 and mutli Tds.
the defense needs improvement as well! what world are you on where the D is good? they are average at best. they play great first halves as the second half seems to let all the wheels fall off.
just admit the defense needs some real improvement as well and I'll stfup about all this. its really annoying sitting here saying yes the offense can be better but so can the D and you jump all over me. its a fact. the D was been subpar agaisnt 3 subpar offenses the last 3 weeks.
just admit both sides need improvement
I don't like the way our offense is being run in those games you just listed. Notice how you think the D is bad in those games as those teams play their personal SBs to slow Brady down knowing what the blueprint is.
What's sad is, this is going on years and years of this with McDaniels and Brady not getting it.
This all started when RIdley got fumbleitis too. Not a coincidence. Since then they've ditched a run game and gone pass happy with Gronk back as Brady's crack, with Def Coordinators knowing it.
A decision needs to be made and made now. Entrust the gameplan with a lead back and stick with it. I don't really care who it is, but my preference is:
Vereen is only a scatback, so he's fourth.
No better team than to tune up my appoach next week in Balitmore. Fight fire with fire. Period.
Agree on the running backs but not Ridley. I would try to get Vereen involved more against ravens any way I can.
