Shula promoted to OC

Really? Because of this hiring?

Haha wow why do you even post here again?

Sorry but this is one of the silliest posts I've seen on the Huddle in awhile... And that's saying a lot

It's not a positive attribute to your character that you enjoy watching or participating in failure, nor is it a detriment to mine that I prefer my entertainment to be enjoyable. Shula is one of the worst offensive coaches currently working, and his hiring has caused me to lose emotional investment in the team's 2013 success.

If it's your tradition to eat poo, and I have decided I'd prefer to eat steak, it's not me with the problem.

Shula has a spotty track record as offensive overseer, but this hire wasn't about his track record and past league rankings as a coordinator. It's all about continuity. Being selected over Jackson and Shurmur, Shula will keep the basic elements of outgoing OC Chudzinski's offense in place, boding well for Cam Newton. Shula also has an obvious relationship with Rivera, whose history with new GM Dave Gettleman is minimal. For the sake of the coaching staff, at least, the Shula promotion makes sense.

Why would Shula keep elements in place more than Jackson who actually runs a coryell system, whereas Shula hasn't?

what.

the.

fug.

i honestly didn't think the front office was actually this stupid. this just drained nearly every modicum of hope i had for the couple of years of this franchise. milquetoastery, in spite of public attempts to paint a different portrait, still matriculates through the ranks of this organization from top to bottom.

this is as disgusted as i've been with a carolina panthers personnel decision in a very long time.

Lets see what happens. I have no issue with this. It's not always about the "big name". Sure Shula may have had past failures but failing is not a such a bad thing if you learned from it so you can become successful. Just a thought

So Jackson wanted the job, but we gave it to Shula... LOL

Perhaps Rivera didn't want a former NFL HC waiting in the wings, Jackson has had the "interim" title before.

On the other hand, there are things about this move that make perfect sense and it's not exactly fair to judge Shula based on his work with the Bucs more than a decade ago.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see, but if we struggle it will be hard to know that we turned away a proven and successful OC like Jackson.

Wait, so the only consistent argument for this move is that the franchise quarterback needs to be coddled like a little child?

Who did Shula have as his QB at Tampa. Who were his surrounding players? Who was the HC during that time? I just wanna know I haven't researched it cause I thought it was Hue's job.

Tony Dungy was the HC, and Trent Dilfer was the QB...

Rosters/Stats 96-99

Next year is Cam's tryout season for the Dallas Cowboys - so this honestly may end up helping us in the long run!

LB Coach - Still hoping for Babich, but it doesn't look good

RB Coach - If we got Skipper, that'd at least be something

WR Coach - I'm good with Proehl

QB Coach - Would have hoped they'd backfill with someone like John Ramsdell or Jeremy Bates; no such luck; Shula does double duty

ST Coach / Offensive Coordinator - Same comment for both. You had the chance to hire a couple of coaches with proven track records - one with a rep for being among the best in the league at his job - but instead you chose to go with two underwhelming choices that were already on staff. Why? For the sake of "continuity".

Quick hint: Continuity is a good thing if what you're "continuing" from was something successful :(
