If Shula is promoted to OC, who might the new QB coach be? While losing the opportunity to have Chud or Norv (I was leaning towards Turner after Chud did his sophomore slump routine again), the potential of landing Dave Toubs is keeping me cautiously optimistic. I'm wonder if the Graves hire was to appeal to Smitty when Rivera came over.

Many posters wanted to see Rivera and co. canned this offseason. Now that Rivera is safe, Chud is leaving for a promotion, and four other coaches have been let go (Murphy during the season), I'm seeing the same posters pouting. It just goes to show that some folks actually enjoy being Debbie Downers, which is a damn shame. This team has had enough disappointment and bad breaks, it doesn't need the folks that are supposed to be supportive of the squad looking for the opportunity to eat some piss-milk cheerios

Its not rocket science people.

If you are Rivera, and you know if you fail this year you are fired, do you install a completely new offense and give it at least half a season to gel or do you promote from within, keep the same offense, and hope for the best?

Rivera does not strike me as a huge risk taker. He promotes from within.

And take your impression of "team needs" with regards to the draft and throw them out the window. Gettlemen is not drafting players to fill holes for Rivera this year.


This. Agree!

Gettleman is the new man in charge. Rivera is not his guy. Gettleman will build this team his way (NYG way, DL). Chico better learn how to use the players it he want to keep his job.

With Cam, our backfield, Smitty and Olsen...we dont need a guy who is "creative." We just need someone who will be smart and not try to do too much. I dont want a John Fox type offense, but put the ball in Williams, Stew and Tolberts hands and let them carry us. Cam can, but Chud tried to do too much with Cam as the QB. I think this offense can be top 5 once again by just simply simplifying things.

One, Shula never had a Cam motherf*cking Newton as his QB in Tampa Bay. Two, we could definitely stand to be a little more conservative in offensive philosophy with the running back talent on this team. Cam's natural aggressiveness will keep the big plays coming.

it may sound dumb but at this point i think cam's development should be the top priority

continuity is good for that kind of thing

just like it did for 10 weeks this past season, right?

sorry, but what we learned this year was that you can't just put any OC there and cam will be great.
