Mike Shula has already cost us one Super Bowl

Recommended Posts

Panthers United with the troll threads rolling today. So...

So I bring you the truth. Mike Shula already has cost us a Super Bowl with his inability to adjust in 2015.

Will his incompetence cost us another in 2017?

What say you?

I say we should be working on our 2nd Lombardi.

Wade Phillips exposed the poo out of Mike Shula that night. Shula still hasn't recovered from that sonning. It's like he doubled down on his problem areas since that experience instead of learning from that utter decimation.

2 adjustments should always be made.

1) to your available personnel, their strength and weaknesses. build to strengths. work around weaknesses. for example, OT has been a weakness of cam for a while so...quit putting him in situations where he has to rely on them for so long. i don't care what your philosophy or grand master plan is or how brilliant you are. if you can't do the above, you shouldn't have your job. chud was never aware of even who was on the field in any situation. he threw plays out there regardless of whether they fit the personnel on the field or not and making the assumption that they all should be capable of the same things might be ideal, but it's unrealistic naive.

2) to your opponents. one thing that fox was horrible about was looking at the opponents strengths and planning to ram heads with their strengths rather than go after a weakness. if a team was great at stopping the run, we focused on running the ball. might show you've got balls, but so does a 6'2 120lb drunk russian kid taking on a 2400lb bull. I dont think shula is that bad, but i don't think that he makes adjustments. when you see that some team is beating you like crazy on the edges and getting to your QB regularly on your long drawn out pass plays, stop doing it. its that simple. find an alternate plan that gives you a chance of success.

the manager that puts 100% of their trust in their plan going into a venture and sticks to it come hell or high water is destined for one thing, failure.

i think he wants to prove it will still work. fox did the same thing.

i think to a large degree, shula's failing is rivera's failing and vice versa. i don't know who it is that is making the decision to change nothing, but right now i don't get the sense that this evolution was anything more than dreams without either the true intention or ability to make it happen.

Shula is a good offensive coordinator and if you think he's a problem you don't know football

I found Shula. Or his kid.

Can't blame shula too much for not deviating in the superbowl what got us to 15-1. I can blame horrible game changing calls by the refs and Mike Remmers

Fwiw, our offense played as well as the Broncos offense did.  Our offensive line couldn't block Von Miller and Demarcus Ware, both potential hall of famers.  Their offensive line couldn't block Kony Ealy.  We made more all around mistakes than they did.  Poor tackling on a punt return, missed field goal, and most importantly, turnovers.  That cost us the game.  Nothing else.

Replace Shula with Henning in these threads and it's 04 - 06 all over again. 

BTW, Are you folks slamming on Shula aware that he's been awarded OC of the year twice in the last 5 years? It doesn't appear NFL folks agree with your opinions.
