Tom Clements as our HC is actually starting to grow on me a bit considering his pedigree for coaching QBs, look at the job he did with Aaron Rodgers and Matt Flynn. plus this factoid i found out about him is encouraging as well
between 2001 and 2003 with the Pittsburgh Steelers; under Clements’s tutelage, the Chiefs’ Elvis Grbac (in 2000) and the Steelers’ Kordell Stewart (in 2001) and Tommy Maddox (in 2002) each reached the Pro Bowl.
as well as this one (also from wikipedia)
In Week 17 of the 2011 season, after the Packers went 14-1, head coach Mike McCarthy chose to deactivate Rodgers to keep him healthy for the playoffs and start backup quarterback, Matt Flynn, on January 1, 2012 at Lambeau Field vs. the Detroit Lions, Flynn's second start in his career. Throughout the game, Clements worked with Flynn on the sidelines, showing him what to look for in the photos from the previous offensive series. Flynn had a record setting performance, throwing for 480 yards and 6 touchdowns, both single game records for the Green Bay Packers.
In my opinion i think Clements is doing a good job as the OC in GB this year and deserves a shot as a HC, and i think the panthers should finally look for an offensive, QB minded coach instead of a defensive minded one. Him and Shaw are my top two candidates for the job.
