Mr. Scot

Worth remembering...

Wasn't a big reason Shula was hired was because he agreed to a one year deal of continuity with the offense?

Only reason

The knock on Chud was that he was always way too 'pass happy'.

It'll be a transition now going to a more balanced system.

 

Norv is calling plays, right?

And if it wasnt of dropped passed and fumbles....we would have moved the ball very efficiently on a good D.

Not sure why this is spun as a playcalling problem. Was clearly a player issue on Sunday

Self fulfilling prophecy.

 

Goal # 1 for most huddlers, win the game.

 

Goal # 2...Be able to say all offseason that if we lose its going to be because of what I said.

 

People hating on Shula have been doing it way before the first game. Nobody all of a sudden just decided to turn on him.

And still lost.

 

With last Sunday's D, we win ( or at least with last Sunday's D, and Chris Gamble [or probably even Drayton Florence]).

 

If we keep dropping easy passes and fumbling in the red zone it won't really matter.

 

Uncharacteristic. Not concerned.

I think it was a bit of both: mistakes and play calling (or at least a lack of faith in colleagues and/or personnel).

I agree with you. It will take time. I actually like this new approach. Balanced attack is needed. We have all these RBs, why not use them? One thing I did like about the game is Cam took care of the ball. Was he alittle too timid? Maybe. But he didn't turn the ball over. I'm looking forward to sunday

All I can say is I need to see it before I can believe. I want to give Shula the benefit of the doubt and that he can change his conservative ways, but he has 3 seasons worth of NFL OC data and his offenses ranked bottom 10 every year (2 years at 30th in passing). And then Newton goes out and puts out a career low passing yardage total (I realize the Seattle D is good and there were some drops). 

 

I keep thinking of the Einstein quote about insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

 

I need to SEE different results for my opinion to change.

From what I've heard.

 

Norv was usually better at having some semblance of offensive balance.

I don't understand how we're supposedly going with "consistency" when we promoted Shula, then the offense is totally different. Boggles the mind. Sounds like another Rivera excuse.

"Continuity", not "consistency".
