Shula vs Quinn - A matchup of first year coordinators

Recommended Posts

Zod    14,969

One thing not being discussed is the fact that first year Panthers Offensive Coordinator Mike Shula will be going up against first year Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Dan Quinn.

 

The Seahawks had much defensive success last season under Gus Bradley, now head coach of the Jaguars.

 

Seahawk fans seem to think it is a forgone conclusion that no drop in play will be experienced on defense. However, it is highly probable that losing a top tier defensive coordinator will indeed have an effect.

 

This coaching matchup is a huge question mark. No one really knows how effective either will be in their new role.

The Jags hired Del Rio after having the best defense we ever had. We did in deed drop in the rankings the next year even under a defensive minded head coach.

I think we'll be okay if Shula doesn't shoot himself in the foot by trying to make things too complicated or fancy. With the weapons he will have at his disposal, I think he'll be just fine - assuming the line can hold up.

So it will be the tale of which coordinator screws up less? I only saw one Seattle game this preseason and he defense looked as advertised. Shula may go conservative or he may become innovative. there is no reason for him not to use the running game. I hope he does.

I forgot about that. Definitely will be a factor, but that defense still has a lot of talent.

If we come out throwing and keeping the Seahawks off balance we can dictate the pace of the game. Try and get some three and outs on defense. I think if we play our brand of football on both sides of the ball we will be in the game at the end. Only this year I believe Cam will make the throw and the defense will hold.

What? A point of weakness in the Seahawks impenetrable armor? The players the Seahawks have on D are incapable of failure needing no coaching whatsoever. You and I could walk on to the field with an inflatable Motorola headset and pretend to call defensive plays and they would still be the greatest of all time. We are dealing with demigods here, DEMIGODS I TELL YOU!!!

Why would anything slightly negative be talked about with the anointed ones?

The media has their story line and will run with it.

In addition Clemons lead the Hawks last year with 11.5 sacks and Irvin was second with 8.

neither will be avaliable week 1. That would be like us entering the game without CJ and Hardy and thinking our D would be fierce.

So the first year DC won't have a big chunk of what made them go last year
