Revamp the Offense

Quick and simple fanpost here. To be blunt, our offense stunk this year. This coaching staff tried fit a square peg in a round hole. The results reflected that. According to, we were 27th in points and 27th in yards.

As I stated in a comment in a recent post, Jonathan Martin as of now seems to be another 2nd round bust. According to Barry Jackson, he allowed the most qb hurries for any tackle in the NFL with 47. Yes, he can get better but I wouldn't bet my potential franchise qb's health and development on it by starting him at LT.

I am of the opinion we should attempt to keep Jake Long at a reasonable price. I don't believe he would command top dollar after his past couple subpar years. It's a gamble but it could end up being a bargain if he returns to his previous form, which you would expect given his young age. If he does leave, a high draft pick must be used on yet another olineman. The trinity or tranny's or whatever the hell we called Ireland/Sparano/Parcells would have a boner right now if they were together.

I disagree with most fan's assessment that we should keep Brian Hartline and Reggie Bush. Like it or not, they are average skill position players. I don't mean to go all Omar Kelly on you, but why do some of you prop up these average players? Good rbs can be found for cheap as evidenced around the league. Hartline scored ONE touchdown this season, he doesn't deserve a contract that his 1000 yds will demand.

In my opinion, we should allow free agents Hartline, Bush, and Fasano to leave.

I'd even be open to accepting a midround pick for Bess if it was offered BEFORE THE DRAFT, not after like the Vontae trade.

We must find West Coast replacements for Incognito and John Jerry who can't zone block worth a damn.

In free agency we need to aggressively chase offensive weapons for Ryan Tannehill. Follow the Colts and Redskins model. Go out and get this offseason's Pierre Garcon in Jennings/Wallace/Bowe. Draft the Fleener's, Dwyane Allen's, TY Hilton's of the draft in the first 3 rounds. They spent 3 picks in the first three rounds on receivers and tightends while already having Reggie Wayne!

I'll leave you with this hysterical, depressing, and at the same time infuriating video I came across on Twitter.
