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.


Ian Rapoport@RapSheet

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...

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.

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.
