I would also prefer if it was someone that has NO ties to the Browns whatsoever.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's the selection. And I wouldn't be happy with it either.

He's done nothing in a leadership or playcalling role.

Totally agree, however, having a guy 3 years into an opportunity to be a QB coach with us, allows him to keep the same terminology and allow the most FLUID transition. If you have noticed, the Panthers don't do too much winning either, with or without Cam.

The comment was made without involving Shula's winning %. It was made for the fact that Cam's development in year 3 is critical and introducing a new system and terminology to a young man who can barely speak, to me, does not sound like a wise idea, especially when Rivera needs to win yesterday.

Can barely speak? Just because Cam likes to say things his own way doesn't mean he's too stupid to learn a new offense. He's done it four times in five years.

No. The Panthers have had enough mediocre offenses.

yeah you realize you're talking about a guy who's learned several different offenses in a short period of time and learned to run an NFL offense in like six weeks right.

so is this another "cam is too dumb to run a real offense" argument

If Shula is named OC,, you might score more taking your sister to the prom than the Panthers next year.

4 times in 5 years, and 2 of those 5 years he's lead his teams to championships. Yes they were in college, but winning on any level is winning. Cam is a smart player and a dominant one on every level.

It's time to take his development to the next level now. Get an OC in there that will play a more balanced pro style offense where the whole team is involved. Instead of this bullshit college offense Chud's been running where Cam is supposed to be the entire offense.

Out of the known candidates we've interviewed Jackson is the best option. I don't believe in his third year with the team if he's ready for all of that, and there's no reason to hire Shurmur unless Pickles is starting next season.

If Pat Y is right about something for once I'll eat my hat.

Well it wouldn't be a sexy hire, that's for sure. But it does make sense. It's really hard to know how Mike Shula would do because we don't visibly see him a lot. All we fans have to go on is his past, and how Shula has progressed as a coach is hard to know. It's hard to develop a feel for someone you don't often see. He has helped develop Cam, and he knows the system well. Rivera must be pleased with him if he talked Gettlemen in to giving him an interview.

Huddlers, we're getting ready to hit boring season. It sucks. Off season for football is the slowest off season of any sport. I know most of us secretly want the Panthers to make a splash with this coordinator hire, because it represents the last bastion of excitement before the iron curtain goes up for a while. So despite this instinct.....we may seriously want to hire Shula. He might not be the best or the worst. But he probably represents our best chance for starting strong next year. Because it's probably what's best for our QB.
