I don't see the point in continuity when we have only 15 or something wins since when? Like the 2010 season? It's next to last over that time span beating the Browns only by 1 victory...

So we go with continuity while we have been in the NFL toilet the past 3-4 seasons...

Thanks Rivera and JR...you guys rock

Not my first choice, but I'm alright with Shula. I'm actually looking forward to see what he will bring to the offense.

keep it on the cheap JR.....want another $125m? ok


How do you know that Shula is making any less that Hue would have been paid?

Another worthless post from you....as predictable as ever.

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

So Trent Dilfer, the only QB to be cut the season after they won the super bowl.

I don't really get it. I suppose we could all get hyped for the unknown but he is exactly that...an unknown. We turned down a guy who wanted the job who has a body of work to show that he can successfully run an offense in the same system that we theoretically ran here (when we weren't running the read option poo).

The known quantities about Shula, to me, aren't exactly harbingers of great things.

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


Wow anything to spew hatred huh? Rivera is in charge of these decisions, not the quarterback.

Oh the offseason..

are we even going to be using chud's playbook?

or are we going to be using shula's masterpiece from the 90's?

Also on the subject of continuity...how much could there really be? We ran two totally different offenses last year...plus the one we ran in 2011. It's not like we had a long history of running a WCO and wanted to bring in a Coryell guy.

I hope I'm wrong but to me this hire (and the promotion from within for the ST job) scream "we think we're doing it right already...we were just unlucky before". That is patently false.

Jeezus, I am away from the computer for a couple hours, and look what happens.

Congratulations Jerry. You now have probably the least experienced and least qualified (on paper) coaching staff in the league. Combine that with an undersized scouting department for the win.

This was a terrible, terrible move. And not just the Shula promotion. I'm not sure about the other hires either. Sure, Ricky was a great WR. That doesn't mean he'll be a good coach, especially given his lack of experience. As for ST, all I can do is shake my head.

And people wonder why some call Jerry cheap.

Will be interesting to hear if Dilfer has any comments on this move.

I guess we could mimic that juggernaut from TB in the 90s. Man that was an offensive powerhouse down there.
