Good DCs will eat shula alive this year. I'm just going into this season as a evaluation period. We should have a competitive team by 2016.

Yeah, I'm sure Gantt's right and Gettleman doesn't have a clue about what he's doing.

Damn, I wonder why Gantt's not making huge money running and NFL team?


Don't give JR any ideas! you know how he loves sports writers

..only hope we have next year on offense is to let Shula call 2 plays and let Cam call a play every first down series...Cam should be getting a clue by now as to what should work to move the chains...



You know I was thinking about that myself (Cam calling his own plays, when I heard the previously underachieving Shula got the gig, and I wasn't initially happy with it). LOL.

Seriously though: From listening to Shula, Greg Olsen, Steve Smith, Brandon Lafell and Ron Rivera, I wouldn't be surprised if Cam had much more input in what plays were run and audibling, compared to with Chud.

Smith, and some others on the team made it very clear (as we could see), that Chud called a lot of plays that didn't work, that the players weren't happy with that. And they also complained, that Chud didn't listen to his position coaches when it came to implementing the offense or play calling. So it only made sense, that Chud didn't really like audibling, cause he felt his plays were gold (even though Cam was very successful doing it).

And considering how everything was supposedly done for Cam's continuity by the team, I look forward to seeing him carry Shula (as he did Mulzahn, Chizik and Chud to great offenses, promotions and/or National Championships). LOL

There is much more to an offense than just what the QB is doing.

Come on now, you can't be that oblivious. He knows much more to the offense than what Cam is just doing, he's been apart of the game plans, weekly meetings, etc....

The skepticism you have toward Shula is a bit unwarranted, are you a better photographer you were now then you were when you first started? Of course you are, experience and practice, makes perfect.

He hasn't practiced calling plays or game planning in many years.

do you consistantly apply that to all coordinators who have been position coaches for the same time frame?

it is a talent driven league. Shula did what Dungy wanted....and they won games.

Realistically, what would a really good OC done in Shula's position in Tampa given the talent and HC?

i would say it depends on if they are proven failures in that capacity or not.

Scored more than 9 points a game and not be completely out coached the majority of the time.

with the gameplan Dungy required and a weak cast.....how many pts per game should he have had his offense putting up? Dungy dictated what they did and when....

How exactly do you score tons of points when your best weapon is a FB and Dungy wanted the D to win the game.

and if he wasn't completely out coached the majority of games they would have lost more than they won. If John Fox told Davidson to run a draw in X situation and the opposing team knows the call......that wasn't Davidson being outcoached.

who is he cutting without Genttleman's opinion? His staff? HC builds his staff....Hurney made the right call letting Rivera bring in Chud. You don't hire a HC and then have a GM appoint who his staff is....Gantt is off base there. His opinion on RR awhile back slants all his writing now.


I'd agree that complaining about letting a head coach pick his staff is off-base. The vast majority of head coaches are allowed to do that, and why shouldn't they be?

Honestly, you have no clue on what you are speaking. You saw 0 of the games. Everything you are spewing now is second hand information spun into a semi positive light. Cut it out.

Shula was absolutely HORRID and he was despised 10 times more than any Carolina coach has been.
