We knew it was bad when they couldnt score a TD in the pre season. It all comes down to Tanny failed to fill the holes on Offense in the off season. We all knew that the line needed some upgrading and we got Tebow. Without a solid line the ground and pound wont work. Other than Mangold, that entire line is suspect.
We also never got a solid smash mouth back for the ground and pound.
Sanchez has a very very good play action, BUT that wont work without a solid running game.
The blame for this mess falls squarely on the shoulders of Tannenbaum. His job was to get better players for REx and the coaches to coach.
The injuries have nothing to do with the lack of offense. The problem existed long before guys started getting hurt.
