i agree. i think it would've been a huge risk to let miles go but most of us are frustrated with the ability of our teams to make that final step. it is clearly the inability of the offense to perform at a level consistent with the defense that is holding us back from winning more championships. first it was the OL ('09, etc) that couldn't block shit, then it was the qb's and now it is both (at least this year). are offense is built to power run with the 3rd down pass to get the first down. really good defenses or even decent defenses that scheme to stop our run have had too much success against our offense. a good defense forces and offense to make plays and our O has not (in general) stepped up to the challenge over an entire season. we have had some damn bad luck; OL attrition, krag's illness, etc but we need to get over the offense hump if we are going to win more titles. our frustration, as fans, is that miles ain't getting it done on that side of the ball. yes, we score enough to win most games but it is obvious to all that we are not a top offense. hell, we can't even power run at critical game times anymore against quality opponents. we need something and i, like most, feel that a quality OC might make a difference. having stud as OC is only OJT for a line coach and that experiment should end. let stud go find a different school to learn the craft. we need to get an established quality guy that can have the authority to build a balanced offense. i think we can find a replacement for stud as OL coach pretty easily.
