Miami offense is sizzzling and look at us, that right now looks like the worst loss from the offseason.

I completely agree. I think I saw that our offense was in the top 5 in teh league the last 3 years he was here.

I think I did. I didn't think he was very good at all, but he kept the offense moving, that's for sure. Not sure if it's Linehan or Moss, but one (or both) changed us.

i agree completely, Scott Linehan was atleast somewhat creative with the offense and knew how to put daunte in a position to succeed. Steve loney isnt OC material on a college team let alone and NFL franshise. hes a suberb O- line coach, but hes proven he doesnt kno how to use the weapons hes got which are far better than many teams, even with our RB situation

This is a very good point. I will admit, I for one never even gave it a second thought. But in reality losing a genuis like that is almost if not worse then loosing moss. Looney is good at what he does, coaching the line, but not running this offense play for play. I hope this offenisve torture dosnt last too long:(

I hope Tice doesn't decide to take over the play calling - then again, could it be worse?

Yep, look what he did for Louisville, look what he did for the Vikings. To me he should be our next head coach. I'm convinced now.

I agree - Linehan went to Miami, and took Gus Frerotte with him, and look how well both of them are doing now.

Somebody dial up Mike Ditka...

Loss of :

1) Linehan
2) WR i refuse to name
3) Birk
4) Dave Dixon ... now rookie guard


..... it all adds up, all we can do now is live with it. Good, Bad or however UGLY it gets.

The same thing happened when we lost Billick...I can remember when both of them SUCKED early in their careers for us...then they finally get a clue and go somewhere else and have success...that SUCKS for us!

But we have what we have right now....so Tice is just gonna have to take control and do the heavy lifting himself...if he fails, at least he goes down fighting....if he succeeds, then he will prove that he is a good coach after all...it's ALL on him!

The first poster said that Miami's offense is good because of Linehan and I am saying its because of Saban possibly.

Why you hating on me go hate on the guy that said our offense sucks because of Linehan. I dont think Saban or Linehan are worth anything.

Hmmm....maybe this is what ticked me off. Or the fact that I hate Michigan and enjoyed watching USC roll them two years ago.

I am am beginning to understand now how things work. First we hire someone to do something...say the mascot Ragnar. Then, let things lie for a little while. Then EVERYONE is calling for their head. And wants someone else. Then, when they are gone, everyone misses them and says how great they are. We had better fire Ragnar, did you see how he danced on T.V.?

darn he figured out our little system let's get him :lol: just kidding.
sometimes it feels like it doesn't matter who we bring in they'll stink it up, that is a very depressing feeling.

Bah. It was a half way decent game until on the like 15 John Navvare through a pass off Braylon Edwards foot that was intercepted. After that they were on like the 10 and it got pretty ugly.
