The interesting thing is how we are good. Running behind our tackles. Everywhere else we are bad...

Do you think part of Irsay's insane abandonement of Polian and his ranting after a preseason game is him being worried about his legacy? Is he dearate to win another SB or two to try to ensure his place as an all time great owner. Is this your line of thinking as well?

I was about to argue the point about this team being close to being one of the most talented teams out there. But then I thought:
1. If Luck takes a step forward and...
2. If Manning decides to retire and...
3. Our coach abandons his outdated system about running and stopping the run
then yes, we would be.

I am still not convinced that Caldwell was inept. I think he and his crew took the blame for a gear in which we had the worst QB not named Gabbart ever. I think the coaches and Polish wanted it to be a bad year, to try to retool with a top pick or two, but public opinion turned and Irsay did what he did. I know Caldwell was awful at in game decisions, but those teams always showed up prepared and ddisciplined.

This may sound weird, but with how our team has played, I would almost rather play a great O with a mediocre D than a great D. I just don't trust our offense at all...

@bengundy @chip_bennett Interesting that two of the three names typically associated with Polian's downfall--Brown and Hughes--are playing at a very high level. Polian wasn't the problem.

@JohnTemple1 This wasn't hindsight, Kyle has been saying these things since the offseason.
To be fair, we are not down on this team--we have loved this team. Luck, Wayne, Hilton, Davis, Angerer, Freeman, Mathis, etc. What we are down on is the front office and the philosophical approach that is actually making things harder on those players.
This is the greatest comment section ever

Vick Ballard was a good pick up. And you didn't mention to signing last year of Tom Zbikowski...

What tier does Blaine Gabbart go to? Have they made one that low yet?

I love the idea of putting Richardson and Brown in together. Maybe the old "Pro Set" that lends itself to lots of unique trap plays.
I would add a fourth suggestion: They need to run most of their routes to 10+ yards. When your number 2 receiver is only catching the ball at 47% of the time, going short will not necessarily help us move the ball. I would love to see us bring back a few of the route combo's from last year, give Luck the chance to move the ball in chunks at a time.
Also, I think they need to design plays aimed at putting Fleener as a central player. Let him be our big third down guy.

What type of formations do the Titans use to run the ball? What formations do they find the most success? The least?

@hankster I would question whether the tempo change was what really impacted the team, or whether it was the playcalling and formations that made things work better.

I know that a coach can't give too much away, but I still fear that Pagano believes what he says at the podium. When he talks about needing to look at the tape to "clean up" communication and technique, that tells me that he just doesn't get that it is scheme and playcalling that need cleaned up. The second half was what it was because they abandoned the power running approach. I hope he is just speaking coach talk, but I fear that this is truly what he believes about how to win games.
@naptown_ninja @mattshedd @matt_has To be clear, I do not want to return to the Arians offense any more than I want to stay in the Pep offense. But, I think that we can find a middle ground that allows for aggressive shots down the field, while having shorter routes and misdirection as well.

@hankster @mattshedd @matt_has and why are we convinced that playing more aggressive football is relying on one player and not the team? I would argue that aggressive football is playing to the teams strengths, and helping to hide their weaknesses.
