Am i the only one that is frustrated with the lack of Calvin Johnson in the Offense? Why do i have to watch Screen Plays on 3rd and 10?
Why is it that every game so far we see Jahvid Best break out and amaze us all in the first quarter then we hear nothing else until the end of the game (Yes even the Philly Game) or for that matter only see Calvin Johnson in quarter 4?
Im sorry to say it, but Scott Linehan needs to go. And Schwartz needs to change his Tennessee state of mind. I totally understand where your coming from Schwartz, the Titans run,run,run and then they run some more but they also never had the best WR in the NFL either. I totally understand that we haven't seen enough of Nate Burleson to fully judge the offense, he is going to create more openings for CJ and hopefully we will get to see the real offense. Stafford being hurt is a legit excuse. That being said none of this answers my biggest question, which is why the heck we throw screen plays all the time. Not once have i seen a deep shot, and i'm talking over the Safeties bomb shot. Why is it we come out trying to run? Schwartz and Linehan expect everybody to respect Best and this run game, but let's be real there is only one guy Defenses have to respect right now, only one guy who has really proven himself and we all know that is #81. Why don't we come out gunning? Hitting Scheffler and Pettigrew and maybe a Safety will pull off CJ and we can hit him. Oh i almost forgot after you got the Defense on their heels you give it to Best and let him go. Nope instead we let the Defense have 7 in the Box defending the box 1 CB on whoever that guy is on the other side and the other CB and Safeties on CJ. When Kevin Smith returns just run him out there in the Slot and let him go over the middle all the time. Please Please Please Schwartz help us.
Oh and Stafford, Hurry Back.
