Cause of lack of offensive production


In what looked to be such a promising year at the begining of the season, high expectactions and an abundance of talent, has instead left us all looking for something more. 

 

I would say one of the most underrated offseason aquisitions this year was the signing of defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.  We have a very young defense which had a lot of question marks coming into this year, but they have shown great camaraderie and proved themselves to be reliable, which i believe much of the credit is due to coach Nolan.

 

The offense however has failed to step up and put points on the board.  Expectations were high with a true no. 1 receiver in Brandon Marshall, having powerfull weapons in the passing game and opening up the running lanes for our backs.  After the first three games of the season, I'll admit I did not like the things I was seeing from our signal caller Chad Henne.  As the inaccurate passes flew, and the decision making from him was at times frustrating, I was ready to call in Chad Pennington.  As the season went on however, I saw great looks from him and well plassed balls, and became a beliver in no. 7.  I began to question Dan Hennings play calling if anything, as many other fans were expressing frustration in that area.  But after the recent inconsistencies from Henne, the question once again emerges.

 

Is it the inconsistent play from our offensive leader, or the play calling of the coordinator that has failed to put points on the board for our beloved team?
