    I don't like Loggains. At all. We have great weapons all over the field and he calls an offense that stalls consistently and can't get drives going. We're deep at WR, have a RB who can hit home runs (allegedly), and have a few TE who can catch and make plays (also, allegedly). Where is all of this stuff when it's 2nd & 9 and we're running it up the middle out of the shotgun?

    I have mixed feelings. Locker is coming on nicely with his passing game. We have to give Loggain's credit for this.

    When Fitzturnover started with no running game our stallled drives and turnover were not on Loggains play calling. Fitzturnover threw every pass high,low,behind or off target was tough to watch.

    On the other hand the running play calls have been pathetically predictable. We have had to deal with a line that has been one of the worst in the league at run blocking which is a handicap but we've not been creative at try to come up with work around's to compensate for this.

    Looks like Schwenke may go a long ways to fixing this so lets see how we call the running game in the second half of the season.

    I think we will see how good our O coordinator is when we play the rams. There is no reason we cannot score plenty of points on this team.

    The biggest weapon on the field should be CJ. Loggains has to find more ways to get him the ball in space.

    No, I don't expect it to be easy but it's inexcusable that the Titans can't execute 3-4 screens per game. Watch how the Saints use Sproles and the Lions use Bush. They find mismatches and exploit them. Getting CJ the ball 6-8 times in space each game should be happening.

    LOL yeah. Reynaud at WR. A screen to Jackie freaking Battle. Not exactly the type of "creativity" we've all been calling for Dowell.

    I'm wholly unimpressed with Bilbo thus far.

    same here and I would love some PA passes thrown in there, seems like forever since we have used that in our playbook.

    Adding pistol. More motion, and changing the offensive scheme from bully to sneaky would really help. Get Greene and CJ on the field at the same time. Run more reverses with wright, more screens with CJ.
