the story of every panther offseason with very little to show for it.

I can't disagree.

I'm just not empowered to affect change here, short of selling my PSLs and I'm probably crazy for not.

Still there is reason for optimism, with a franchise QB, a pretty decent MLB, and two pretty good DEs...a supposed all pro center and a LT with a few more games in him...and decent running backs.

I will err on the side of optimism with Gettleman running the ship. If Gettleman fails, over the course of 3 years, yes, that will be it for me. Getting too old and the PSLs too expensive.

Just talked to Cam.

He said fug this poo I'm going back to the 60s and calling my own damned plays.

We're good.

Chud was a control freak, I like Shula being promoted, maybe Cam will be allowed to call a few plays himself now.

Maybe Cam will be forced to improve at the LOS bc Shula sucks so bad is basically what you're saying...

Get ready for another top 10 pick next year and hopefully a different staff. Hope Jerry enjoys that extra drop in the bucket of a couple mil he's saving by keeping this terrible staff.

I lived in Tampa Bay during his tenure.

Defensive coordinators would laugh about how the bucs had a high school offense and no game planning was needed, just base packages.

I'm not exaggerating. It was god awful.

You have no idea.

God I hope he has learned a few things since then.

Wait, how did you living in Tampa give you access to all the other defensive coordinators around the country and their private game planning schemes for the Tampa offense?!?!?

With that type of access and privileged information you should be the OC ;)

Also, I think it would be important to note that he will not be using the same playbook he was using in Tampa or Alabama for that matter. He will likely be using Chud's. So thankfully it shouldn't be that high school offense this time around.

Shula is gonna be flipping through Chud's playbook like a Goosebumps book. If you want to run a "double reverse screen turn to page 57", "If you want to run an I formation trap turn to page 699".

Why would anyone go back 12 years as an indication of what a person is capable of doing as if he has lived in a cave and learned virtually nothing. Most posters on here were in grade school or high school 13 years ago. Should we base how you will do today or you level of competence back then. Then why go back that far to point to Shula's performance? Just being with Chud should have opened up his eyes quite a bit Here is an article from Yaz suggesting the move was a good idea.

He says that Alabama was coming off NCAA sanctions and it was Dungy that demanded such a conservative offense not Shula. Neither situation was a set up for success like this one. From what I read, much of Cam's improvement and therefore the offensive improvement was due to Shula.
