And you've ascertained this from 2 preseason games? Amazing.
Got any tips for the Powerball too?
Nahh, I don't think the poster at the top was using just two preseason games for his analysis. I say that because these two games have been an exact copy of their whole body of work to-date, going on 3 years for Genius Whisperer and 7 Year Boy Wonder. These two games have just underlined and made bold what we have witnessed again and again.
One has to ask is there's a reason for Gase to be so coy, to play call down to the minimum during these games? After a good ice breaker in Game 1, Game 2 offered the chance to unwrap Tannehill a bit more, to find out if they have something in Gesicki, find out if Grant/Wilson will complement the passing attack, open things up, let the oline work at giving Tannehill time to go downfield. Then use game 3 to work on those things that needed refinement. As it is they are headed for the Titans opener with as many questions as they had when camp opened.
Is Gase so arrogant, so delusional, to think that he's in such solid ground that he can throw away one, maybe two regular season games? He's sure coaching like it.
And defense is very much a problem, as the top post indicated. LB is a problem. CB is a problem. DT is a problem. The Titans running game, led by one of the best olines around, will eat up the middle of the defense and Gase will be lucky to have six possessions in the entire game to do anything, so he better get the offense to work now, when games don't count, on quick strikes, moving the chains, and not expect to be able to matriculate down the field with a bunch of five yard passes.
So I have no problem with that outlook, it's spot on. Let's see how Gase addresses game 3, see if he is capable of change, or is he too stubborn and continue to think he has a secret nobody else can figure out.
