Rivera should have been fired in the first place, now we will have a shitty offense to match Rivera's shitty coaching skills.

At least he will get fired after he fails this year

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. :)

You are arguing that coaches do not fail in one system and succeed later in another. That too is silly, even for objective fans with perfect vision. This too should be understood. :sword:
I wanted Jackson. I am just praying that they know something we don't and that Shula has learned a few things in 14 years.

That is the move (or lack of one) that I least understand, considering April was on the table. I hope there were logical, strategic reasons for the desire for continuity on special teams. It seems Rivera looks at the last 6 games of each season.

Gettlemen's tune during his press conference did not seem as if he was interested in continuity.

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.


Yeahh.........

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


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


He won't get fired because there is nobody on this staff that is good enough to replace him.
