Shula excited to be a coordinator again

54 posts in this topic

Then why are there so many photos of him coaching from the sideline in Tampa as OC?

He still is our QB coach isn't he?

Probably from when he was a positions coach. As an OC he was in the booth, just like he will be here.

I think Shula got the job bc he was overall going to keep the O we have been running in place. just fix Chud's glaring weaknesses/issues.

If we wanted a run, run, run offense we should of just kept Fox. Cam is the most dangerous man on O.....offense still needs to be slanted toward him. just a little more help given to him than Chud gave him at times

Both he and Rivera talked about keeping much if Chud's scheme, but adding and changing some things.

I assume this would be a better utilization if our RB's. but then again, I am just assuming this is what he meant. May be totally wrong....we will just have to wait and see.

No. We are apparently hiring one.

As an aside, Shula talks funny.

Ah, you are right....forgot about him being there years before in that role. I guess Vinny T should of also tipped me off though

I assume that as well...I really would like to know how many teams had less RB/FB rushing yards than Carolina last year. Cam needed more help. Chud got lazy or cocky.

Dungy was bathed in Gatorade after the Bucs' 24-13 triumph over the Vikings. The Bucs will have a hard time dousing a victorious Shula, who sits in the press box on game day.

Bleh, I hate press box guys....especially with young QBs

I believe he will do just fine. Give him a shot. If it doesn't go well then they're all gone and we have a new staff next season.

Yeah pretty much.

haven't seen that anywhere. i've just seen people assume that he was.

i did see this that gave me a little hope:

“I thought we did a good job with Mike and Warrick back then because it’s hard to get those guys in rhythm,” Shula said. “It’s kind of a good problem to have. But there is the word, ‘problem,’ in that sentence. So we’ve got to continue to find out what each guy does well and ask him to do those things.”

But with Newton, who led the Panthers in rushing last season, Shula indicated he would use a mix of the zone read and more traditional runs, along with a downfield passing attack.

paying attention to what each runner does well and putting them in those situations is something that chud never did. chud admitted that he didn't even look on the field to see which back was on the field when he called plays. that's why we had williams doing things that stewart should have been doing and stewart doing things that williams should have been doing.

so i like that.

i also like that it will be a mixture of those things, the zone read, more traditional running plays, and the downfield pass. i just hope he mixes them up better than chud. it seems like he's going to be more observant than chud, but still it's just talk and being able to notice what's happening on the field (something that chud wasn't good at) doesn't mean that you'll make the best decision or make it quickly enough.

still, that's some of the most promising stuff i've seen. still not sold on it at all, but oh well...
