Tannehill was way better than I expected today and I don't expect him to repeat it. So many throws into tight windows today.

Do we know with any certainty that the one throw was intended for Jonnu Smith? Not saying it wasn't, but he was so accurate the rest of the day it's odd he had one pass that was 6 yards off.

It's kinda weird. He's like the sick love child of Ruskie and Rammy without any of their good qualities.

The defense wasn't great in the first half. 10 points on 3 drives that could have been 13 if they kick the FG.

But honestly they were good in the 2nd half, just very bad on the last two drives until the last play of the game.

I know some here already mentioned it but jeeze Simmons absolutely destroyed his man on that last play. He's gonna be special.

Cian brings up a good point in this isn't likely to last(throwing contested passes and continually winning them). Gotta scheme people open more often.

Agreed. I don’t want the fact that Tannehill played well and the receivers made plays to overshadow Arthur Smith still being completely incompetent. An offense that relies on terrible spacing, tight throwing windows and contested catches to have any success is fundamentally broken.

Even if it wasn't why were they so close together. 

It looked for sure to me it was a throw to smith that got away from Tanny. 

But either way it's asking for disaster.  Let's one defender cover two. 

Or 

A tipped pass by Jonnu leads to an easy INT.

Yeah 3rd quarter they gave up like 3 yards and the offense had that ball for a long time. 

Was great to see a long drive by the offense for once.

It will. And I think that no matter how poorly this season could go, this is the game that saved Vrabel's job.

I agree completely with the play design, I just didn't know if there was any sort of confirmation it was intended for Jonnu Smith.

I initially thought it was too, but I think it was because the camera angle only showed him until after the throw.

That's why I feel the players overcame coaching. 

The score and stats can make the causal fan blind to those issues. 

Is any of this sustainable? 

Probably the best offensive performance of the year and it was still almost a loss. In ATL it wasn't as good because of the bigger plays. 

We actually had drives this game. But again can that be repeated given our players and coaches.

While all fair points, I think another reason only 23 points were scored is just how long both offenses kept the ball. It was long drive after long drive, or at least it felt like.

I don't think so. We relied on Tannehill playing well above expectations to score 23 points, even though we only had 3 possessions in the first half, that's not a lot.

I think some of these awesome tight window throws become INTs fairly soon. I wouldn't be surprised if we score 9 points next week.
