Re: Is MacDaniels to blame for our Offensive Ineptness?

In response to patsfan76's comment:
I was actually thinking about this last night when I was watching "turning point.
Hear me out. I like Joshy. He is a smart guy but maybe too smart for his own good. We all know he orchestrated the 2007 record breaking season, but was that success because of HIM or maybe a dynamic player like Moss n' Brady coming together to produce the magic???
When Randy Moss slowed down is when this offense started to suffer and only when we traded him and changed our philosophy to the TE offense did we get back on track. O'Brien is starting to look like a better coordinator than Josh. I didnt like the fact he didnt utilitze the RB's out the backfield but he kept the offense moving.
Ok lets go back to 07' . By seasons end, teams had caught on and by time we got to the SB, we couldnt even score anymore. A measly 14 points!!!!
Josh goes to Denver and has some success w/Orton n' Marshall. After a while, it goes stale and he goes from Darling to D*psh*it in matter of one year as he loses his job next season after the offense stalls yet again.
He goes to St.Louis where they have a 2nd year player in Bradford who lit it up his rookie season and showed a lot of promise. Under Joshy he regressed and had a horrible 2nd year and they didnt win many games and Joshy was allowed to just come aboard our team without any resistance to help in the playoffs where we struggled in the SB.
As I watched turning point last night, I saw that Bradford was back to normal and looked great his 1st 2 games so to me if you do the math, Joshy is Bad News for any offense. I think there is something about him that makes him predictable and his style has been figured out so to speak. Can we still win? sure, cuz we have # 12, but I never liked the move and now I have more reason not to. Hope we can win in spite of him anyway.
Thats my theory. Joshy is a bright guy but his track record the last few years has shown HE is the problem with the offense not the solution.
