I dont see what the problem with promoting shula is. We don't need an offensive mastermind running this team. We are littered with playmakers on offense, we need some back to basics plays. There is this route that requires a 3 step drop and gets the ball out of the quarterbacks hands quickly... its called a... slant? I think? I'm not sure it's been so long since I've seen one.
Regardless, we can keep Chud's plays in the playbook, just be a bit more realistic about what is called. Keep the read option and triple options down to about 5 plays a game. Run it up the middle occasionally, even if its for little or no gain it will bring the safeties up and prevent defensive ends from pinning their ears back and gunning for the backfield every play.
Think Mike Vick in Atlanta. I mean yea it was a failure but mostly because Vick couldn't pass worth a damn, but you put Cam in the same style of offense (no gimmicks or option plays, just a QB that can take off if need be with a good run game) and he's going to tear it up. We have the tools to run a similar style offense in a good pass catching TE, and a good backfield that can trade power for finesse and vice-versa.
