This is a disaster. We've basically just thrown away the first three years of our once-in-a-lifetime gift of a franchise QB.



this is it right here.

The one thing I am interested in knowing is how much Rivera knew or if he was prepared for something like this to happen.

Gettleman is signed being told we have a staff in place for next season...and then, the guy who runs and created our offense leaves. You've gotta think things are feeling uncomfortable already for him and now Rivera is going to either just promote Shula (yay?) or scramble to find a 1 year temp.

ugh

Yes, it seems like we've been screwed once again. Hard to believe that this wasn't foreseen. Who wants a more-than-likely temporary OC position other than someone who is inexperienced or who had their chance before and blew it and wants another one.

No top notch guys are gonna want to come here.

Cam went through four offenses in four years, and thrived in all of them. Hell, his worst struggles came when he was under the same scheme two years in a row. He's not Alex Smith, the kid can learn with the best of them.

Yeah but I'm ready for him to go to the next level.

I'm simply stating that Cam's not an idiot, he can absorb any changes made to the offense (which I don't think will be nearly as wide-ranging as the panic-meisters imagine it will be.)

I'm not worried about how Cam will perform... but the offense as a whole has to all be on the same page. Whoever we get, best thing they can do is let Cam be Cam... don't try to force him into some system and nitpick his mechanics. Let him play.
