Here is why (in theory) promoting Shula is the right call. As the QBs coach, he HAD to learn Chud's playbook in order to teach Cam. Cam has to have retained a lot of those plays, as well as the other players, as well as Shula. We stick with the same offense that has been working, and the easiest way to do that is to hire within.

Now, we just have to see if Shula can call plays at the right time in the right situation. Honestly, his biggest help will be Cam. He needs to give Cam the keys to the Porsche and let him drive that offense a bit. Call audibles, even call some plays in the huddle himself. If that happens, I think we are fine (at the very least, we stay about where we finished this past season, which isn't bad).

All of this is moot if I'm dead wrong and Shula just can't call plays at all. If he has no anticipation, if he has no idea how to effectively set up a nice script sheet to start games, THEN we are screwed. Right now, I am optimistic. Not ecstatic at the hire, but optimistic. We'll see during the preseason and early in the regular season if he has the chops for it. It won't take long to see. I think the smart move right now is to improve the OL for Cam's sake and to beef up the defense, just in case Shula bombs on us.

At least you have a rational defense of your opinion and reasonable expectations, not "it's right because they did it you fake ass fans blarghhhhhhhhhh"

Just when I thought Rivera was getting his poo together he goes out and hires no one. Its going to be a very long time before he ever gets a head coaching job ever again.

Anyone who wanted Rivera back should have been prepared for him to promote Shula. After all, Cam really rallied and played better the second half of the season, right? And Bill Bellichick was awful early in his career, then great, so therefore Shula will be too, right?

Name all of the OC in the NFL by name if you think there are none, no one has heard of. There are some plennty of movement like this on other teams, we just dont notice cause its not our team. Be honest how many of you even cared what coaches went were when we were not looking. I mean you would look at the big name guys and glaze over everyother move. Thats not to say i approve of this move and that i would not have been happy with someone else. I just think we need to realize we are not the only ones who like to promote from with in. the grass is always greener on the otherside, so the guy promoted by the other teams seams better than our guy, its just a brain game we play on ourselves. Just like when we think we are drafting a WR we think the draft is juust not as good at the top as it was last year. its our fear of picking a bad one that drives this. anyway, this is not a shula will rule post, just a reminder we have a biast opinion. relax and watch it unfold, we will no soon enough how this pans out, and be prepared for fire shula no matter if we win or loose.

Its Revera's job to lose and he knows if he starts out like last year he is toast. If that happens, look for all the coaches to be fired.
Gettleman and Richardson will be desperate and throw the bank at the biggest name out there. Its a win win because either we will have a playoff team or we will get that big name coach.
