I wouldve love to have Hue, but I'm really am fine with this. We'll have a more balance offense. That's all I'm really asking. I dont no how it'll work but we'll find out soon.

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

That fricking ignorant.


Exactly. He had Trent Dilfer at QB for Christ sake.

May be a mistake...may be the right move...will wait to see what happens.

Or, I could just over react and lose my freakin mind now like many of you.

Whats ignorant is not understanding that he failed at play calling twice. He had been hired twice to call plays, and he failed every time.

No one is thinking he will use the Tampa playbook.

The Trent Dilfer that went to a pro bowl in 97 and won a Superbowl in Baltimore?

Ever stop to think Shula wasn't exactly a positive thing for Dilfer?

Dilfer is the only QB in NFL history to be cut the season after winning the superbowl.

I think Shawn King was the QB in 1999.

He should have stuck with Shula. He would have tons of Superbowls and not just 1. Right?

His play calling scares me. I hope his philosophy has changed. He was in his mid-thirties then, and now pushing 50. Maybe Gettlemen and RR addressed this in the interview and liked what they heard. I want to believe that. He was operating under a pretty smart head coach at the time, one who needed new scenery and a good QB to win a super bowl.

So for anyone interested:

http://www.pro-footb...ms/tam/1996.htm

Shula was with Tampa as OC from 1996 to 1999. While he was there, his offenses ranked:

1996 - 30th Pts/28th Yds
1997 - 23rd Pts/29th Yds
1998 - 18th Pts/22nd Yds
1999 - 27th Pts/28th Yds

Shula was fired in 1999. His replacement, the legendary Les Steckel came in under the same conservative HC to post:

2000 - 6th Pts/21st Yds. With Shaun King.

--

Shula went on to become the HC at Alabama for four years.

http://www.sports-re...abama/2003.html

His team records at Bama:

2003 - 4-9
2004 - 6-6
2005 - 10-2, won the Cotton Bowl
2006 - 6-7

--

Shula was hired as the QB coach in Jacksonville in 2007, a position he kept until we came knocking in 2011. In 2013, he was promoted to OC so that a perennially losing team could have "continuity".

Seems like a solid hire.

How old where you when Shula was OC? Still in high school? I would expect he has learned a lot about running the pistol particularly in the last 2 years. Who out there knows more about the system we want to run than him right now? We get the same system we were running without the ego of Chud and emphasis on what will further his career. DId Chud run the same system he ran in Cleveland? Not really.......

Why would you think Rivera would pick a guy he wasn't sure would do a good job with his butt on the line and only this year to make the playoffs. Rivera has made mistakes but his choice in coaches has been pretty decent really.

Yeah, that's why he has already fired 5 in 2 years. Great choices.

Just hoping for the best. Maybe Shula has learned from his experiences and now is his time. We will find out.

Too much negativity around here lately.

Lets all agree He wasn't a good OC in the 1990s. What does that have to do with 2013? What does his head coaching record at Alabama while they were coming off sanctions have to do with his ability to run this offense?
These things are only tangentially related.
