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.

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.

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

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.

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

I honestly just don't understand how this franchise can be so complacent with losing. For those of you who are considering selling your PSL's, I'd say now is the time to do it. I don't know if this team thinks the "good" teams hire from within so that's how we should do it (newsflash: we aren't a good team, we're a laughingstock exactly because of moves like this. We're losers) but it's just pitiful.

Of course the Richard Rodgers promotion as well is just rubbing salt in the wound. We interview some very highly touted candidates who have had great success and then just elected to promote one of the orechestrators of last year's abortion despite all the money we spent on "aces."

This entire team is just a disgrace and it's hard to see this move by Rivera as anything other than him trying to convince ownership that "it wasn't me! it was everyone else who was bad!" in an effort to buy himself some time. If I were Gettleman I would be beating down Richardson's door to let me fire the man right now. Three in-house hires in a losing organization, promoting people who have no business being promoted, is just unacceptable and the fans should refuse to accept such a thing.


This entire organization is an embarrassment to the National Football League.

I am in the camp of waiting to see how this plays out the first half if next year before I decide if it was a good move or not.

Right now, none of us know.

The ST promotion is the one I question....assuming that April wanted the job.

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

Oh the offseason..


Easy tiger, I didn't say that's what I thought, I was referring to all the posts citing "consistency" as the reason for this.

It makes zero sense.

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.


He's partly right

This is all JR fault

The people of Charlotte, Carolina period needs to tell JR the hell with his 125 mil and completely stop going to the games. Do something else on Sundays

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

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.
