Shula interviewed for OC position

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.

Exactly, so why so concerned about keeping everything the same for Cam? Not like we have a winning formula to protect.

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.

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

    • Great. That's like putting this guy in charge
    • As far as the OP's question, any OT, Allen (wasn't impressed with him in the playoffs), Lattimore, Charlton and a QB. I'd be happy with Adams, Hooker, Fournette and Howard. I'd love Fournette or Howard.
    • Again, your generalizing people.  While there are plenty of examples of trashy people (lord knows my mother's side of the family is basically a garbage dump of humanity), you can't paint the entire community in that scope.  Like many of the bootstrappers, you say "if I can do it, anyone can."  That's not true. I have a ton of stories of kids with potential, drive, brains, determination who are simply lost due to their demographics and experience.  I know a kid who was from an absolutely horrible situation.  His parents were jailed, raised by his aunt and uncle as a 2nd class citizen when compared to his cousin.  I mean, they provided, but they failed in the love department.  Not quite Harry Potter situation.   He was brilliant, earned a full ride to NCSU, but failed out in the first semester because while he could navigate a crappy neighborhood and poorly supported high school; he was unable to cope with the rich, white world of the majority of NCSU kids.  Culture shock.  Thankfully, he found the military, got his life straightened out, and is stationed in Hawaii and keeps posting these beautiful images of the islands. While it's fairly easy for white people of all income levels to navigate the great world of white culture, minorities and especially minorities from poverty have an extremely difficult time "fitting in" to the greater, whiter world.  It has nothing to do with their work ethic, their intelligence, but simply stepping into a world that is so different from where they are from. Hence why there's a significant amount of internet tension between bootstrappers and those who think it's fine to help those who need some help. What I'm seeing based on his news posts is a general level of ignorance of the people around him.  I mean, I get it, there are many examples on the huddle and in the world of people who overcame adversity, but they are the exception, not the norm.  That dirty word "white privilege," or more accurately "middle class privilege," blinds people to the realities of those outside of their small circles. Now before the angry, poor-to-rich bootstrappers get huffled about being called middle class, how hard was it for you to walk into a bank, talk to people, be taken seriously, and do business?  Despite their relative levels of poverty, they still have an advantage of knowing how to function in the greater, whiter world.
