Tony Dungy fired Shula as OC because his offense never ranked better than 22nd.

Good point Zod, but who was his QB?

Huge difference, imo.

He had a #1 draft choice he ruined who later went on to win a Superbowl.

I don't see Shula as the answer either, but at this point he may make sense as an interim OC to finish the season.

Chud is killing us.

I just view it as, if the whole staff is on a one-year mindset, give Shula the chance. Chud has proven to be stubborn and inept, just as he did in year two in Cleveland. There is a reason he wasn't an OC again until we hired him. With the absurdity of what he's doing right now, I don't see Shula making it any worse, and I think because he interacts more with Cam and listens to feedback, he may be a better option to get things going offensively.

hopefully Shula has learned a thing or two since his time with the colts.

on the bright side the defense has been playing much better.

They've played better. BUT we've had the lead in the fourth qtr in all but one game. And it seems that when we need a defensive stop to seal the W the defense gives it away.

If you were going to fire Hurney why not give control to Rivera to see if he's got what it takes to be Head Coach/GM. You're not going to get a new GM and start over until next year anyway.

Who knows? What if it works and we pull off 7-8 wins to finish out the year. It wasn't so long ago that people where saying fire Riveria and make Chud the head coach to keep from losing him.

I'm not giving up on Rivera yet as the defense has improved and I don't see him enough of a hand on offense and let's Chud handle that (to a fault as we've seen now). He'll either rain Chud in or replace him.

They are usually on the field the entire 4th quarter. Normally when we get the lead, we will do a couple of Read options, A cam sack, punt.
