    He won't duplicate it and we shouldn't expect him to. It's not realistic.

    It's harder to replace a RB than a QB? What world are we living in lol

    Not resigning Tannehill because we don't resign Henry? It's like some of you think we can never find a talented RB again. Like we don't run a similar scheme to the 49ers who do the same thing on the ground with no-names and retreads at RBs. I know you're going to bring up Arthur Smith because he's not Shannahan, because as rage mentioned we've been down this road 1000 times, but Henry only had 2 100 yard games without Arthur Smith last season and 4 in his career, 5 if you count post-season. He had 6 100 yard games this season, 8 if you count the post-season. So Smith's obviously pretty good at what he's doing and it's clearly not like Henry is the only thing making him look good. If they decide to move on from Henry, we will find another talented RB (or two) that will fill his role just fine.

    The argument here is that almost no RB lives up to their contract. What RBs were made among the highest paid at their position that the consensus view is that it was a good decision to pay them? How often does a team let a star RB go and that team looked stupid? There are bad contracts given out at every position. Especial free agents who are being brought to a new environment.

    I don't think agents care about that when they go into contract negotiations. If people are talking about Henry as the best RB in the NFL, his agents will point to that contract as what the team should be expecting to pay the best RB in the NFL. It doesn't mean he'll get it, but the most recent contract at your position for a similar caliber player will always be relevant.

    I was in my early teens in the first part of the 2000s, so my actual knowledge of what happened back then is fuzzy without researching it, but didn't we have major cap issues and a lot of cap casualties that followed? I feel like we couldn't afford to retain a lot of players.

    A big difference between paying Eddie George and paying Derrick Henry is the era. In 2000 RBs were still in vogue. Running the ball and playing defense and holding teams to under 20 points was a realistic option even against good offenses. It's 2020. I think most people would agree that Henry's presence and marketability do add value to what he should get in a contract. However that value should not make him near the highest paid RB given Zeke's already overpriced contract. One of the best ways to make a team more marketable is to win. That needs to be the #1 priority when handing out contracts. AJ Brown was becoming a marketable player just before the playoffs and he still will be. We will have other people to market just fine if we continue to be successful on offense. Whether or not we should bring him back should come down to the amount he's going to get paid. Bringing back Tannehill, Conklin, and signing a top edge rusher should all be a higher priority. How much can we afford to pay him after that while still being in a good position going forward keeping in mind contracts we will lose in future years and the contracts we will need to add?

    Bradlee Anae looking really good
  10. None of what I said applies to an elite franchise QB in any way. No idea how you're trying to flip what I said. It's talking about historical examples of RBs who left and the running game production stayed with the RB and not the OL. It never happens. So the argument is that Tannehill can be the same dude and we can have similar rushing success with a guy like Jonathan Taylor. Can even add a cheap FA in there so that if our RB has an injury we don't have to hand it off to guys like Dawkins. Henry will have less success if he goes to a place where their OL isn't very good and we will have continued rushing success because we have a good OL. Whether or not you believe Henry should stay, it is undebatable that the run-blocking is more important to rushing success than the RB himself. So then it's just about finding another talented RB.

    What's funny is the amount of people who were trying to say they'd take Mariota over Stafford in one of the preseason threads lol. Using things like wins to say Mariota was better. Team bias is huge and people rarely realize it and find their opinion completely objective.

    Bowen was with Vrabel in 2012 at OSU, 2016-2017 with the Texans, and then 2018-2019 Titans. Vrabel probably has a pretty good idea of who he is and he has a good idea of the talent on the roster. He also has the same playbook Pees used last year for continuity. I never expected an outside hire. Good teams train the people below them and promote from within. It's just not exciting as a fan. I like a lot of what we do as an organization with Vrabel and Robinson. I do question them wanting to be a run-first team, but honestly that's probably a recency bias problem in my brain after seeing the first two playoff games as Tannehill averaged ~260 YPG in the regular season. Obviously we weren't just a running team and had a great all-around offense. Still mad at them just trying to burn clock and punt to Mahommes at the end of the first half though.

    I don't know how much of Arthur Smith was growing pains. Ryan Tannehill looked instantly better.

    We're not going to be in any position to draft a rookie QB. Even the trash ones like Jordan Love are gone in a lot of the projections by pick 20. It would cost more capital than we could afford to move up high enough to even get Herbert who might still go top 10. Hell Josh Allen went top 10 and Herbert is better than him.

    Based on 8 games in a 4 year career? We'll see.
