The first one did imo, They got better, still too much side tracking

 

BTW, Japan, didn't you know the rubes would turn on and blame LaFluer!

Yeah. Silly.  He sucked so bad he got his dream job!

Anyone thinking Vrabel isn't running a run 1st offense is going to be disappointed, Kuharsky pointed out again yesterday. 

 

It was obvious as the season went on LaFleur realized Mariota was limited and the offense had to be scaled down. 

 

Pick up Derrick Henry in your FF league!

Which Derrick Henry will we get? Gotta figure in contract year we’ll see the Eddie George influenced one.

Nobody turned on lafleur. 

 

He did all he could after the the disaster of a first game and nobody able to block.

Blaming Lafluer is stupid. He did the best he could with the shit-sandwich OL he was given and helped make them functional by year's end. I'm sure he made his share of mistakes as a play-caller but that's to be expected given it was his first season doing it. I don't even blaming him for forcing Dion Lewis as long as he did, even I was having trouble believing he was playing that badly and thought he'd eventually figure it out.

Tracis Haney just had an article the other day saying Vrabel was planning on bringing the entire staff back before LaFleur got the GB gig.

 

Also watched the podcast 18 minute version and I didn’t come away with a bunch of MLF hate.

Did people really think Vrabel was going to get rid of Lafleur?

Whats your point? They weren't going to replace LaFleur after 1 season even if the job he did was lackluster.

The idea that Vrabel and LaFleur were not aligned is overblown.  

I agree with that however it doesn't mean Lafleur did an awesome job and was simply constrained by Mariota last year like you are insinuating.

I'd like to see Vrabel back the fuck off the offense. He meddled too much last year. Also if he's truly married to a run first offense at all costs  he won't be long for the job. It's very hard to win that way with the way the rules are set up.

It's the only way to win without a top flight QB though.

I don't know that anyone is saying there was some huge rift - but I think there was some conflict behind the scenes. I bet most OCs would have that issue with Vrabel though, especially ones ingrained in their systems.

I don't think very many people thought that.

I’ never claimed he did a great job.  I do think he adjusted well to play to what they could do well.
