One thing is clear, the brass is giving Shula the benefit of the doubt.

I hope Shula proves us all wrong. That much is sincere.

Delusional, much?

 

Anyways, back on topic, I'm looking forward to the changes that will be implemented. Hopefully, we'll get another talented TE this year.  Seeing more production from the slot will be huge, especially in opening up our flankers.

Either way Ron went all in with Shula. I remember distinctly Gettleman saying he wanted some change but Ron stepped in and said he trusts Shula and the staff. The result will be on the field this coming season. If they fail to make the playoffs and have a sub 500 record, I wouldn't doubt one second they'll be looking for work. 

Voth reported a while back that Gettleman urged Rivera to make some changes to his offensive staff, specifically regarding Shula and Ken Dorsey.

He likely figured Ron would fight for Shula but sacrifice Dorsey hence his stated expectation that Dorsey would be replaced.

Instead, Ron reportedly"stuck his neck out" for both.

If they fail this season, Rivera could very well be the one who pays the price.

Coaches are going to have more input in this year's draft.

As has been reported many times, the coaching staff has always had full input on the draft.

Gettleman prefers a collaborative approach where everyone has input. He then makes the final decision after listening to what they all have to say.

Last year was less about Shula and more about not addressing problems. People love his as a scape goat but the truth is he needs talent just like the defense.

Newton needs to get over his yips as well

Agreed.

Part of that might be preventing him from being the most hit QB in the league.

I would like an offense heavy draft in the early rounds as well. This organziation seems to pretty much always concentrate on drafting defense early unless its emergency situation (ex. see Cam and KB) .

If I were them I'd get Fournette at 8 , Westbrook or Zay Jones at 40, and Legett or Butt with our late 2nd. Use the rest of the draft for defense if you want.  Can't keep drafting high round talent on the defensive side of the field and expect your offense to be  consistently great.

Hell even if they're still determined to use most of the draft on defense? Okay fine. Go get Fournette  , Corey Davis , or OJ Howard with pick 8 and use rest of the draft for defense if  you're so determined. That'll still be a nice upgrade for our offense.

I would love a situation where someone like Corey Davis could end up being our #1 WR with decent speed and great YAC (none of our receivers have that imo)  and KB develop into a lethal #2 possession reciever. I've seen in multilple places he's been compared to Terell Owens he's the same size and moves similarly.  Not Ginn speed but fast enough to outrun DBs, can make great catches, but is still great YAC and fights through tackles. A lot of you are dismissing the idea we get a WR at 8  , but I wouldn't mind it honestly. Davis and Ross could drastically change our offense as much as Fournette could (assuming all of them have healthy rookie seasons) .

Shula was the one asking for another TE last off season, knowing that we had to evolve as an offense. 

It's absolutely insane the criticism he gets for last season.  His hands were tied.

People keep saying this as if its facts. Can you find Shula saying this out his own mouth?

Last I checked in this offense, our 2nd TE blocks

Ya know what, ultimately I really don't give a damn if you believe the truth, or not.  

I'm not going to go digging to go find something I learned almost a year ago. 

If you want to discredit it so much, then you go digging. 

Today's society as a whole, sucks.  You and your mistrustful ways, is another great example.

Actually the OP took paragraphs to take the same tired shots at Shula and the playcalling
