Offensive Minded HC Discussion

I know its interesting to discuss these college dudes in Shaw and Kelly but let's step back beyond college.

Let's discuss the offensive minds in play that are actually in the NFL to be our HC if/once Rivera is sh*tcanned:

Greg Roman (49ers)

Worked under Capers on both sides of the ball here in Carolina and has been successful with Harbaugh and I'm sure has got some of that HC juice flowing in there somewhere. Been talked about round these parts from time to time.

Tom Clements (GB OC)

I understand McCarthy is basically the primo offensive mind there but Tom has been in the NFL for quite some time. Coached with Ditka, Cowher, and Holtz. He worked with Kordell Stewart and they say was the hands on guy in developing Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

Look here...study time on the sidelines!

Jay Gruden (Bengals OC)

Impressed with what he's done in Cincinnati albiet they tend to sputter occasionally

Rick Dennison (Texans)

My favorite choice. Hard nosed, has been hugely successful from developing offensive lines for Elway and Schaub that have turned up some strong RB performances from over the years. He's as big of a reason if not more for Shanahan's constant run game success in Denver. Great leader and can tend to light a fire in people's asses on the sidelines from time to time. And not to mention I absolutely love how the Texans' offense is built.

Mike McCoy (skip)

Bruce Arians (Colts OC/Interim HC)

Strong history in Pittsburgh and has definitely shown his capabilities in the HC position this year on the sidelines and in more ways than I can mention. Has worked in nearly every facet of offensive assistant-ship from Virginia Tech to Bama to Pittsburgh.

In that rant Jay Gruden sounds just like his brother Jon Gruden.

Nobody named Gruden, and no Mike McCoy.

Greg Roman I could see, but I'm not so sure a WCO fits Newton.

hence the skip for McCoy haha

I understand Cam isn't the most accurate at those short throws and he may not be the most ideal fit in a WCO.

Dennison though really intrigues me. Love his resume and especially how the Texans are built. If we pull in a WR at the top of our draft and get another TE/FB type, we could run a similar offense. Most importantly, that would be the exact type I would trust to build a long term offensive line plan.

Why you don't think a WCO fits Cam? It's get him out on the of pocket with the roll outs, it cuts the field in half, and most of all it will fix his intermediate throws especially the 10 to 15 yds ones he tend to over throw.

His mobility is a plus in that system, but short throws aren't his strong suit, and most WCO attacks are heavy on those.

Coryell offense suits him way better.

God no. For everyone bitching about Chud not running the ball enough, Arians calls passes way more than Chud does. Luck is on pace for ~650 pass attempts this season. That's nearly 150 more attempts than Cam had last season.
