The smallest possibility of Shurmur or Shula being hired is simply depressing to think about.

Why would anyone want Whisenhunt?

How hard would you laugh if a report of Whisenhunt being asked to interview came out after it was reported that we were "down to three finalists"?


I can't see how or why they wouldn't ask for an interview with Whisenhunt, especially with all the HC position now filled (except who just fired him)? He is now forced to be an OC somewhere, so why wouldn't he want a team that has a QB? Denver is out as they promoted within... is there another team, with a better QB, who needs an OC? Don't think so... Carolina should be the optimum spot for anyone looking to be an OC... jmo

Why would anyone want Whisenhunt?


Because he took a team/organization to within a play or two away from being Champions within a year or so of being their head coach... and did it with someone who was considered washed up and ready to retire (Kurt Warner)... he also was a big part of the offensive system that Big Ben had so much success with...

Well, for starters, he took his team to the Super Bowl shortly after embarrassing us. Now, let's compare that to say Shula, or Shurmur...

I would prefer Whis to Jackson, but like both miles better than either of the "S" candidates.

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.

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.

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.
