Oh I agree, and I have no doubt that once a coach reaches the NFL ranks they are insufferable assholes who are tough nuts to crack in terms of adopting change. They're always right. I mean how hard headed is Chud and Rivera at this point? No one knows better than them!
that said...it doesn't really bother me if he can or can't.
the offense needs to be tailored to his strengths. the offense needs to be molded around him rather than trying to mold him to some offensive scheme that may not fit his skill set.
newton is incredibly talented. yes, he has areas that he needs coached up on and needs to improve upon, but there is more than enough there to have an elite offense. it doesn't have to be any traditional "pro-style" offense or whatever.
it just has to work. it worked last year. we know it can be done. they just have to do it.
imo, you get a coaching staff that can build around newton rather than try to make themselves look like geniuses and you've got an offense that can, once again, be among the best.
