lol. Sadly, I think MM is going to help turn the Jags around.
I don't like MM as a play caller, but he does like repetition. With that group of players, they are gonna need to do the same thing over and over and over again until they improve. Even without MM, they are a good 4 years out from being competitive.

It seemed MM tried to make simple plays complicated through verbiage and some decoy, but at the end of the day when the line lines up for a run off tackle, it doesn't matter how many decoy things you do, defenses can read it based on the personnel/fromation. My opinion is that the plays were not very creative, but the way they were presented made it harder on the offense to run than the opposing defense to stop. They defenses could guess based on formations and tendencies and be right a majority of the time.
Which is idiotic. If that's the case the only thing he was doing was satisfying his own ego. When your system is complex to your players and simple to the opposition you are doing it wrong.
I've always said he either had to be stupid or arrogant, and as Peyton pointed out he can't be in the position he is in with an IQ of 50, so that only leaves arrogance and we have seen plenty of evidence of that.

He actually might. As much as I don't want him here, his method worked for a while but we outgrew him. At this point, he is better than the talent down there. Once the talent is better than him his weaknesses become much more apparent. So, yeah I wouldn't be surprised to see Jax improve but the ceiling is low.

Like I said, this is just my opinion, but it has been formed based on what I saw our offense do, and what opposing defenses said they saw on film. MM has a history of making offenses better, but never taking them over the top. He is the guy you want to make your team competitive, good enough to win games they should win, but not the guy that can take what he has to the next level. That's why, again imo, he never lasts very long anywhere, but still keeps getting work. I appreciate what he did for the Falcons for sure, but I wasn't sold on his play calling and demeanor taking the offense to the next, elite, super bowl level.

F*ck the playbook. The GAMEPLAN is key. Run, Run, Pass, Punt. 60% of the time it works every time.

I don't think he does this year unless he benches Gabbert for Henne. Even then they have all kinds of distractions with Blackmon being dumb and MJD holding out. They have no viable option at RB behind MJD.
In the article I posted Bratkowski admitted the passing offense just isn't good. I think MM bit off more than he can chew. That's not to say he can't do it eventually, but I don't think it will be as quick as he has in the past.

Tony G hinted at this when he talked about Matt finally being able to go out there and play football. Mularkey's system is far too complex for as simple as it looks on the field.

I couldn't care less as long as he's not here anymore.
