    The 49ers were 31st in offense of 32 teams last year (they were even worse when Blaine Gabbert was at QB). http://www.espn.com/nfl/statistics/team/_/stat/total/year/2016

    The Titans, before Matt Cassel led them to a putrid 188 yards in total offense in the Miami game, were averaging about 340 yards a game, which would make them a top 10 offense. http://www.espn.com/nfl/statistics/team/_/stat/total

    I already know that Chip Kelly got fired after his 2016 season with the San Francisco 49ers.
    No1Maruader ignores the fact that I referred to Chip Kelly's reputation as an 'offensive genius' *in college football*.

    "[Chip] Kelly was hired as offensive coordinator at Oregon in February 2007.[7]
    His potent spread offense attack was an instant success at Oregon.
    In his first season as offensive coordinator at Oregon, the Ducks led the Pac-10 in
    scoring (38.15 ppg) and total offense (467.54 ypg), and also became the highest
    scoring team while amassing the most yards in the history of Oregon football.
    Prior to Kelly's arrival at Oregon, Dennis Dixon struggled in his first three seasons at
    quarterback. Under Kelly's guidance, Dixon was the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the
    Year and emerged as a Heisman Trophy candidate."

    Obviously, the Tennessee Titans did not think that Matt Cassel was a better quarterback
    than the now-injured Marcus Mariota, who was starting ahead of him. So what?

    What 'strawman' will No1Marauder attack next?

    BERLIN — Hertha Berlin nodded to social struggles in the United States by kneeling before its Bundesliga home game on Saturday.
    Hertha's starting lineup linked arms and took a knee on the pitch, while Pal Dardai's coaching staff, general manager Michael Preetz, club officials and substitutes took a knee off it before playing Schalke.
    "Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility! For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!" the club said on Twitter.
    The action was intended to show solidarity with NFL players who have been demonstrating against discrimination in the U.S. by kneeling, sitting or locking arms through the anthem before games. Last year, former quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the movement, which has been harshly criticized by President Donald Trump.
