0 experience as a playcaller and OC.

Who did you want them to hire?  And were you excited for a new offense and new terminology for Mariota?

Someone with a resemblance of experience and respect as a playcaller.

They could have hired Arthur Smith the day after MLF signed with Green Bay.

I bet they decided to make the hire internal. Kept competition between internal. Weighed decision same as if external. And maybe Smith had to decide between GB and TN?

So... someone who'd be leaving in a year? Again?

 

LaFleur wanted to poach him for the Packers so he's getting respect. Oh, and LaFleur was an OC before he came here but was he ever the play caller?

I guess the most disturbing thing about this to me is the fan base weirdness questioning the hire.  Last year JRob and Vrabel talked a guy into making a switch from an OC with one of the best offenses in the NFL to our OC.  What idiots those guys were except after only one year that guy is now the HC for the Packers.  We really don't know what we have but we didn't know what Vrabel was either.  Fans are way to caught up in the way guys get hired.  JRob seems to know what he is doing.  So does Vrabel.  I bet this is a great hire.  

Big surprise the board's biggest homer is defending the hire. That HC for the packers has 1 year of experience calling plays and it didn't go that well.

Lafleur had no experience as a playcaller either.

Good luck Marcus. Guess we will tank for Tua.

 

They did this for #8.

Why would we want an even more injury prone version of Mariota?

That's fine.  It's hard to really have much of an opinion on this.  Ultimately he'll do well if Mariota is healthy.  And he won't if he's not.  Same as with any other potential OC.

Mariota will need 18 months to learn Smith's offense

They need to hire your guy Orlovsky as passing coordinator!
