If Shula is promoted to OC

23 posts in this topic

That would allow Cam to go into his third year of the same offense, where he should excel, while also a new QB coach would need to be hired. A lot of you have wanted a new QB coach, someone like Weinke, so if that were the scenario, would it really be all that bad? I'm not endorsing something like this to happen by any means, but I'm trying to be optimistic about something like this maybe happening. Thoughts?

I'm down with it if that is what is decided. I'm sure Gettleman will have say on this and I trust him to be sure the choice is right.

Shula was Dungy's OC in TB from 1996-1999

Offense finished 30th, 23rd, 18th and 27th in that time

Who did he have on those offensive squads? I honestly don't know. If they weren't very good squads, that could be part of the reason. Our offense has some talent and can do some damage with the right playcalling and a little better o-line play.

I don't like Shula as a OC. He has a bad history of it, but if he still has a copy of Chud's playbook he can just use that and keep Cam in the same system. It's very important to keep Cam doing the same thing with the same offensive language.

When has Shula ever run Chud's offense? Answer: never. I don't get why you guys are insisting it'll be the same scheme with him as OC. He has no experience in it.

Shula wouldn't run the same offense

But there would be some consistency for Cam with him,

i know that it wouldn't be the same offense. i said that but it isn't really what i meant. he has been around to see what works and what doesn't for Cam. he would probably institute a lot of plays that he can run and there would be consistency to what Cam is used to.

96

QB - Trent Dilfer

RB - Errit Rhett (leading rusher)

And there FB was there leading receiver

Dilfer, Alstott, Dunn. Not great, but the offense went from 27th to 6th the year after he left

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
