Shula promoted to OC

326 posts in this topic

Don't be daft. Continuity was the reason. OBviously were going to be using a form of what we used last year.

continuity is the reason that we still have rivera around.

doesn't make that a good thing.

But guess what, in 2000 as soon as Shula was gone, their offense jumped to #6 despite starting Dilfer's backup who went on to fail out of Arena League. TB had a very good offense at the time with 2 Pro Bowlers in the backfield. The problem before 2000 was Shula's absolute failure as an OC, and his famous inability to call the right plays or even get them to the field on time.

Damn, I had no Idea. Good thing I have a lot of Rum. fug

On the bright side:

1. Shula already knows Cam and the rest of our offensive personnel better than any OC we could bring in.

2. He had a front row seat to our struggles last year and to the adjustments that were made that allowed Cam to break through.

3. Cam is comfortable and familiar with him.

4. It's been a long time since his failures in Tampa and it's not like Tampa was loaded with talent on offense.

thank you fir showing the huddle some common sense.

I keep waiting to hear this was just a false bit of information, something, an accident, anything, I keep trying to wake up but I can't.

This team is actually going to destroy itself. I can't believe it. It's unbearable to watch.

Why would anyone think he'd run the se offense he did in Tampa in the 90s.

That fricking ignorant.

it's more the guy calling the plays that's bothering me than the playbook.

You guys saying "it's been a long time since Tampa" are forgetting that he was a failure at Alabama, too, just a couple years ago.

Not sure why all the hate for Shula. ALL of these guys are retreads in some form or fashion.

Some of you guys are crucifying him for not being able to make chicken salad out of chicken sh!t down in Tampa. He was tasked with running an offense without much to work with talent-wise. The majority of that team's payroll was defense. Give the guy a chance.

You guys love poo. You revel in it. Richardson bathes in your money. Through psls and now taxes and you hope for fuging dreams to come true. Meanwhile the rest of the nfl laughs at us wasting cam and our time.

Again, the same talent was the #6 offense in the league the year after Shula left.
