Person: Jackson, Shurmer, Shula finalists for OC job

142 posts in this topic

I think Jackson or Shula would do a good job. It is funny that people go back to 1999 to say Shula wasn't very good in Tampa so there should be issues. That was 13 years ago. I wonder if he has learned anything since then?? Seems to have done a pretty good job with Newton. Didn't Rivera say that much of Cam's development was credited to Shula's work with him. If Jackson takes the job and Shula leaves because he was not given the job we will be replacing him as well. Who knows if the next guy would be better than Shula. Might be another Rip Scherer who actually hurt Jake more than he helped him.

Shula already mentioned he'd be ok with staying on as QB coach. So, Jackson as OC and Shula QB coach. Win-win. Shurmur shouldn't even be in the discussion.

He is great with quarterbacks, that's his thing. We have personnel to adjust to what he wants to do, and I believe he would work wonders with Cam.

Posted this in another thread, but yea, it still applies.

It's time to take Cam's 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(Shula*) ready for all of that, and there's no reason to hire Shurmur unless Pickles is starting next season.

*Edit, I was typing this up from my phone.

Not to disparage Whisenhunt, but in fairness that was against John "my cornerbacks are assigned to the left and right side no matter where the other team's best receiver lines up" Fox.

Fine, but he also beat a heavily favored Atlanta team and a heavily favored Eagles team before losing a close contest to the Steelers in the Super Bowl.

Again, compare that to our other candidates and tell me he shouldn't get a look if interested.

Oh, we do not have the right personnel for a West Coast Offense, and I'm not just talking about Newton.

Our receiving corps and tight end group are dominated by longball guys. And honestly our O-Line isn't really built for that either.

We'd need a major retooling to run that kind of attack effectively.

Jackson has to be the choice. He has the best resume and fits our system better than anyone else and allows Shula to continue to work with Cam.

Anyway we could just hook a game console up to a headset and have Madden call the plays?

He would run a different style of west coast I imagine. Think 2004-2008 Eagles. We have the WR that can take the screens and go for bombs, we have a pass catching RB, etc etc. Not that I think it will be pure west coast, Shurmur can obviously adjust.

I don't know if it applies to you, but I've seen people making this "I bet he's learned something after sucking 13 years ago" who also make the argument "Don't get Cowher, the game left him behind since he coached 6 years ago."

    • you don't need rock hard facts to reasonably comment on what Nunes has done of late.   WH went to Nunes with a goal to distract away from where the House Intel Committee was going and the direction it was going with it all out in the public.   Nunes did just that.  He shut things down on the WH behalf so they could then figure out there next moves.  Because they know what Yates and company following up Comey would lead to. Eyeball test should tell any right left or middle person that Nunes is at this point not doing an investigation but doing the WH's bidding.  The fact he talks like a lying 8 yr old and acting totally out of character in how he has handled himself speaks volumes.       you want to know what people are so interested in everything? Because Trump and company are LITERALLY doing a coverup right now.  They aren't really hiding that.  They may technically have Spicer say it is outrageous and say stuff in the media.....but there ACTIONS are actually pretty obvious and bold IMO.  So it is only reasonable to want to know what it is they are covering up.   Because really Trump and company are the ones telling people there is something.  
    • Well two of those players are off our draft board so I'm going to give this a no
