In reference to #2 I understand your point, but it isn't like this has been a pooty offense and we are promoting from within. We have had 2 consecutive top 10 seasons on offense.

If our offense had not been successful and we did the same thing I would be on board with you 100%, but I understand the idea of having something that is successful and trying to continue it. That isn't irrational decision making.

Think of it this way if you were in Ron's shoes and on the hot seat. You can stay with an offense that has been very good with an OC that is very familiar with our personnel. Or hire a guy that may also be a good OC, but will likely spend the first half of the season playing with his new toy Cam Newton and trying to figure out how to use him to the best of Cam's abilities. Perhaps to the peril of your employment.

I don't know how this will turn out and I am actually pretty indifferent to the hire, but there is a logic in this hire that makes sense.


I understand the decision, but don't agree with it. And frankly, I don't agree with the Proehl and Rogers moves either. Ricky may turn out to be a great coach, but people only love this hire because we loved him as a WR. It's just my personal opinion that we needed to add experience to the staff, not take it away.

Not you, because I know you're not that way, but many on here have short memories about what transpired early this year and perhaps over-weigh what happened the last 6 weeks of the year. Other than the Falcons, we had some nice teams to help us pad our stats those last 6 weeks. Yes, we ended up ranked pretty high, I just hope we all haven't been deceived because of the level of competition.

I think we have something really, really special at the QB position. Guys like Cam don't come along every day. Were I in JR's shoes, my number 1 priority would be to give him and the rest of the team the absolute best staff available, and it doesn't seem to me we are anywhere near to that.

I know you will probably laugh at me for saying this, but Oakland's defense was actually not as bad as advertised. And San Diego and Atlanta (as you mentioned) actually had pretty good defenses.

And yes the beginning of the season was a bit of a drag, and yes we played some poor defenses at the end that may have padded some of our stats. The beginning of the year was rough, but I think both Chud and Cam were culpable in that with the help of some pretty good defenses that we faced.

But just from watching and re-watching the games, I really felt like a light bulb went on for Cam at the end of the season, and that had as much to do with our success as Chud or the teams we faced.

And I know it seems like I am defending the hire, but that is mainly because I think that the reaction has been a little over the top. But the truth is I am really indifferent about the hire. I understand the logic behind it. I also understand your logic about it.

But mostly, and this is probably not a good thing, I feel like this will go one of two ways, either it will work out and we will all be happy, or it won't and it will be short lived before we move on to a new staff.

If he leaves, he will be a Cowboy. JR and JJ are good friends so compensation wont be a problem.

Get real. I wish you negative "fans" would go find another team to "pull" for.

Cam will go to Denver once Peyton is done and become the next Elway.
