Shula vs Quinn - A matchup of first year coordinators

27 posts in this topic

Was not aware of that.

Things are looking like a Panthers upset. We are currently 3 point dogs.

Clemons is injured and Irvin will be serving a suspension.

Seattle has been hyped into this unstoppable machine that the media has completely disregarded who will be on the field. They were the bulk of the Hawks damage to opposing QBs.

I am probably a little more worried about our O than they are about their D.

 

I think this will be a close game with some serious D's going at it.

I think we win IF...

Shula can come up with an attack that doesn't involve stubbornly running Williams to nowhere and forcing it to Smith.

If his gameplay put an emphasis on Olsen, LaFell and getting some others creatively involved? Yes. Oh, and telling Cam to run we he has the chance. Get those easy chuck yards instead of sitting too long in the pocket.

Big if though....could easily see us 3rd and long routinely as Williams gets blown up trying to run behind this OL and Cam forcing it to Smitty covered by Sherman

I was thinking that Olsen needs to be leaned on heavily.  Can anyone remember if they were able to cover the TE's much last season?

 

Hoping that Shula can be a little creative, but not go full Chud like the first part of last year.

 

Hoping to see some boot's, waggles, designed runs from cam...

Olsen was forgotten last matchup....Cam was too focused on Smith who wasnt even trying to run routes often instead wanted to wrestle

Yup they are hurt, great for us.

 

Also- a 3 point spread is pretty respectable for us. I feel good about this game. Week 1 at home, insane defense, great WR options (more than we have had since moose) and a ST that looks capable.

 

Sunday will be fun!

Spot on.  Smith, LaFell/Ginn, Olsen, and anyone in the backfield who can run, block, AND catch a short pass.  Our D will take care of itself, it's Shula's play-calling and Cam's quick decision-making that worries me, aside from the Oline.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
