But Shula is the OC...prmoted FROM the QB coach...so why is "Shula Cam this and Shula Cam that" matter so much? We already knew he was working well with Cam. We already know this. However, what we know from his OC history, since after all he is...now...the OC...which involves much more than Cam, is not very good. He has to prove it to me before I'll be on board. Can't help think this is a mistake, like most recent decisions by our FO, but I suppose I can hope this will be different but I'd rather have evidence than hope personally. Just going to have to wait and see.

I'll have to agree with TCF.

Isn't this thread, the point of your earlier thread?

Why make 2? Oh yeah...

Similar yes, but this one is all encompassing. Plus everyone thought that I was such an idiot, that I thought I should continue gloating over being right that this Organization is making the right moves.

Furthermore, everyone that seems to think I'm all about getting attention is dead wrong. I'd actually much rather someone else make a thread and pie it and give it some rep. The sad thing is that nobody has created much of anything positive today. So, I took it upon myself. I'm not a good thread starter, mostly because I don't care to put too much work into them. I have put together some good ones in the past that have been "featured articles" but I've lost my desire to try and change minds. Instead I'm sticking to my opinions, and if they're wrong... It wouldn't be the first time. If I'm right, it wouldn't be the first time....

I don't beat my wife, so that was a little awkwardly placed sentence

I'll see if I need to address anything else later.

What I meant by the "beating your wife" statement was that I was possibly baiting you into defending a position you didn't actually hold which was not my intention hence my request to ignore that possible situation of misconstruing the purpose of my question.

Alright,

Why do you think Shula was the best hire out there? Considering his record as an OC in the NFL I am wary of him being my favorite team's OC. What do you think about his record and why are you not wary of it as well? That question is kind of a when did you stop beating your wife so please ignore that aspect.

On a completely positive note though I am also very interested in the Panthers bringing back Jim Skipper and I wonder if it will have a positive effect on our running backs from a production standpoint. My suspicion is that it will. What are your thoughts on this?

PS: Totally not kidding. I beg you to persuade me to your point of view. Negativity sucks.

I'm not TCF, but I will say what I have to say.

The deeper you dig, the more you realize that Jackson has some Manti Te'o in him...something just isn't right. Shurmer...hell to the no, WCO down here...with Cam? NO.

Shula knows Cam, Cam knows Shula. Reports are the relationship is very good and who does not want what is possibly the best young QB in the league comfortable?. Shula has never been given the talent he now has at his disposal, at any time, at any level and during his college career the NCAA tied his hands behind his back but they still went 10-2 in 3rd year and won the Cotton Bowl.

I am too busy perusing the other messages to spend all nite researching this, but my opinion is he has NEVER been surrounded with the talent as an OC as he is now.

Let me ask you a question in all honesty...did Brady make Belichick or did Belichick make Brady? Did Walsh make Montana or did Montana make Walsh? Did Jake make Fox or did Fox make Jake? I realize I am using head coaches, but my point is, being in the right place at the right time sometimes is all that it takes.

I want to get along with all of you, but I thought being a fan was more of the RAH RAH thing <WE LOVE OUR TEAM!!> but (not talking to you KRAL just a general statement) this place has turned into the biggest pile of Debbie Downers I have ever seen.

If you hate JR and Rivera and Gettleman and the FO and Shula and Cam and whatever so much go pull for the Falcons. Why would you guys come here with so much vitriol, repeatedly? I have never been divorced but if it got to the point of no return and I did get divorced, I sure as hell would not visit my ex-wife's facebook page to see what is going on or critique her life.

GO HUDDLE!!

Belichick is the best HC in the NFL....he was poo before he got to NE. Shula sucked at Tampa bc his QBs were poo.

Chud isn't good. When Shula has a top O....people here will soon realize it is about the Jimmy's and Joes that make these guys look good or not

I'm glad you did. I will say though my opinion is that those players and coaches made each other. It's called synergy and that poo is amazing.

agreed.

working well with cam is great, but that just qualifies him to be cam's QB coach. what makes him qualified to run an offense? what had anyone seen that says he'd be good at it. being good at one job doesn't make you good at every job.

and we still have a staff thats bumbling around in the dark.

I will COMPLETELY agree with you on that. You can't have one without the other.

Maybe Shula and Cam get lucky and have success. Who would have predicted Gregg Roman and Colin Kaepernick before this year started?

Meh, this was the easy hire. In house guy, continuity (we assume) in the system, the hire is not worried about Rivera being a lame duck. This hire was about geting poo done prior to the all star games and draft to minimize damage in 2013. It could certainly work out though but this hire screams "audition year". Meanwhile year 3 of our fantasic young QBs career is being gambled away.

As much as it pains me to participate in one of .... these threads....

1. Wanting the most qualified person for the job does not equate just wanting a big name. Hue Jackson was not a big name. Norv Turner was a big name. And besides, usually big names get big for a reason....

2. Some of us that have finally had our backs broken by this decision are usually some of the more positive people here. It's not like it's just brooklynbully and rocknrolla and grits and trd talking their same old negative trolling poo, rayzor, mr. scot, ivan and myself (among others, I'm sure, that aren't coming to mind at the moment) are usually some of the more positive and level headed people around. Just speaking for myself, I supported fox until the 2-14 dontgiveafug season, I mostly defended hurney until this year, I defended jake until the Arizona game, I even supported clausen beyond his first game! I consider myself a pretty positive fuging guy but this exercise in lazy, content, bullshit mediocrity is e-fuging-nuff. I can't defend this in good conscience.
