A few observations:
Joe Philbin lost this team the second he uttered 'I tried everything.' It was clear he couldn't get out of his own way. It's painfully obvious that Joe Philbin's stubbornness was a huge detriment to his team. His refusal to run the ball, or swap out Jamil Douglas really spoke to him being stuck in his own ways.
He couldn't connect with his team, out of touch, as displayed by the Incognitio scandal. Dan C. Immediately tapped into these players emotions, and got a renewed sense of energy as a result.
I'm still nervous about Tannehill not making any adjustments at the line. There were several blitz looks yesterday, and he made ZERO modifications. This will result in him taking big hits throughout the season. I believe the previous administration didn't empower him enough. But this will have to be emphasized.
Brandon Albert's return changes this offensive line, tremendously.
Everyone's talking about Suh and his sack total. He's not necessarily there to sack QB's that's for Wake and OV, and a healthy Wake showed you what should happen when he's 100%.
It's a huge problem with the pre-snap stuff. I don't believe a word Lazor says on the subject, and I'm not sure what's going on with this team and audibles. From what I've read, there are built-in hot routes and "calls" that Ryan can make on the fly, but he's not out there changing formations and barking plays like the elite QB's. I read he can change a run to a pass and all that, but that it's built-in to the play. Either way, it needs to be changed or teams will just continue to overload blitz and send DB's. Lazor is stubborn, and he was supposed to fix Sherman's shackles on Ryan. Is the QB too stupid to be trusted to audible? I don't understand...
