Looking back to look forward

At the beginning of this season, I was optimistic. I felt that if the defense could improve, without being world beaters, we had a good chance at the playoffs, maybe not the super bowl, but get to the playoffs and then who knows?

They certainly did improve, but the offense regressed, so where does the team stand now?

With all the talk of replacing coaches and players, what are the realistic possibilities when the season ends?

I personally, would like to see not much change. I know people label our lack of success a disgrace, an insult etc, but I feel that it's more growing pains. The offense was good last season, and it hasn't changed very much, other than it's play. A couple of players on the O line, which may have been crucial, and the addition of Marshall. Henne has disappointed me to an extent, but only in that he has shown his limitations, and he can still QB  a winning team.

Therefore, I believe that, realistically, as opposed to trading our entire draft and hoping we get the next Marino, an improvement in the running game is the key step. If Ingram fell to us, for example, I'd be more than happy to spend our pick on him, get a centre and guard, and maybe a fast WR in the latter rounds.

I've seen Miami have worse seasons than this, and look to have a lot less potential. Only one team per year wins it all, so I continue to be patient.

If Dan Henning has to go, so be it, but if we drafted Ingram and O line, he would be an amusingly appropiate OC to stick with.
