Feb 4, 2000 Shula fired as OC...

93 posts in this topic

idk how relevant his prior stint at OC is, but that's all we have to look at... So criticism based on that is legitimate to me.

I don't pretend to know how he's going to do... I hope he does well, but it doesn't seem like the right move for the team.

Everyone that saw Smith play knew he was going to be special. Not being given a chance and then succeeding when given the chance is not the same as sucking and then 13 years not sucking....that rarely happens.

Exactly...when given a chance, he succeeded. Yeah Shula got a chance, but it was with who at qb? Shawn King? He had a better relationship with Cam (who is 3/4 of our offense), than chud did,,

We might as well hope for the best.

If the Panthers get a decent o-line, and gives Newton a little time, its not going to matter much.

If he fails, Rivera fails and the lot of them will be gone this time next year and we will most likely have a high draft pick.

If he succeeds, well, then we will have something winning NFL teams have, continuity.

Gettleman absolutely must fix those lines.

The Bucs had no QB that year. I mean seriously...Clausen is the equivalent to Shaun King.

Typical Panthers. Maybe this time will be different. We do have Cam, after all.

Alabama fans are some of the most loyal, informed, and passionate fans in the world. They hate Mike Shula more than Cam Newton. That really tells me all I need to know.

Look, I'm not saying we are going 3-13. We might even make the playoffs. But I feel like that is our ceiling. If we play out of our minds and catch breaks we can make the playoffs with this roster and coaching staff. But we don't stand a chance against other playoff teams. There is a clear separation of class between our staff and those playing this weekend.

I live in Bama and I assure you all they are mocking us without end right now.

Covered Mike Shula as play-caller at Bama. Stunned he is an NFL coordinator. But that was 6 years ago. Interesting to see what he's learned

That is coming from this guy...
