If Rivera Was Fired, Shula Wouldn't Be Our OC............................

But if Rivera gets fired mid-season, guess who could be the interim HC......

I think most of us just feel this team is on the cusp and is ready to take a big step up with the right leadership. The moves this offseason (except Gettleman) have done nothing to give many of us optimism strictly based on the resumes of the coaches involved.

Shula may turn out to be great, but I'd feel a lot more comfortable if it was someone with a history of success in their past. Let's face it, strictly from a resume standpoint, Shula does not look too good.

I feel the same way--Just trying to see the best side. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

wtf is this poo?

Hey, if Chud is fired midseason, Shula is promoted. That way when we still suck, Shula is demoted back to QB coach and Jackson is our OC.

I like that better.

Folks, Let's face it. You have no real knowledge that Shula will suck, and you have no idea that Jackson would have been awesome. Here is what we do know. Jackson was a riser, got a head coaching gig, that did not work out, so he wound up as an assistant for the Bengals. A lot of OC jobs opened. Was his phone ringing off the hook? No. Wonder why? Tne NFL is a small community. What is it about this guy that diid not get a ton of interviews? (Jets and Panthers). Maybe he wanted too much money, maybe he has a reputation (he does=reported to be an ass), and maybe he and Cam would have locked horns. We know what we have in Shula, and Shula knows Cam and the offense pretty well. Unlke Chud, Shula knows the mental aspects of playing QB. Shula, for all anyone really knows, may have been the best, obvious choice. To get mad as if your home was robbed is to assume that you know more than Gettlemen (who was involved in the process) and Rivera. Shula is going to be fine. You are all just reacting to opinions formed by others and a few articles you may have read over the last few days. I wanted Jackson too, but I am not going to act like I know something I don't. There is a reason they did not call me to ask my opinion. Take tantrums out on this post until naptime if that helps, but I think Shula will be OK.

this^ ^ ^ ^ ^

I think Shula was chosen after it was clear that Shurmur and Jackson were not that great for this situation. Rivera felt Shula earned his shot and is willing to stake his future on him. If he feels that strongly, I am surely going to keep an open mind.

This pretty much sums it all up. I wanted Norv though... But everything else is spot on

I think you are right. I think trust and familiarity were factors. I see why Shurmer was not a good fit, but I thought jackson was the guy. I also wonder if Jackson has done something to anger the NFL gods, because he should have been sought by more teams with his resume.

You have no real knowledge that Shula will suck,

You are arguing that the past is not a predictor of the future.

ie.. you are making a silly argument only seen as valid to the most blind homers.... which is fine. Just understand that. :)

This entire coaching staff needs to have a meeting. Do some team building exercises, trust falls and the like, hold hands and admit that they suck. Vow to not repeat the mistakes of their past and realize that this might be their last chance at NFL employment.

If only we had hired Beane, this literally would have been the worst off season possible.
