As we all know, the biggest knock on Shula is his conservative/predictable game planning and failure to make adjustments. The only games we have won are the ones where his plans worked and required no adjustments.

My prediction for Sunday:
The Rams are questionable against the run. We have a great run game, right? Shula will call a game that will make even John Fox say, "Damn, you gotta run a play action or some poo every now and then!" (Verbatim)
They will stack 11 in the box. Cam will have one pass attempt, which Donald Lafell will drop. We score 3 on a Gano 55 yarder.
Please prove me wrong, Shula. If you do, I will refer to you as "Magic Mike" for the remainder if the season. As I am a very influential huddler, it will surely catch on.
Thanks and God bless.

Outside of the Bills game I think Shula has done a decent job. You can fault him for the end of the AZ game ....but ultimately the players have ruined some good gameplans. Shula isn't horrible.

If you hadn't given me this amazingly accurate quote in my signature I would've torn this apart. On that note, astute prediction my friend!

Outside of buffalo our players have dropped or fumbled on key drives that have stiffled momentum

I agree, minus adjustments not being made in the AZ game, lack execution is way more to blame the Shula

this.

 

overall, the players have been more of an issue than the play calling.

Every other game the offense comes out looking confused, sluggish and unsure of what it's supposed to do. After dominating the opponent last week, we all know which team is due to show up Sunday.

i really just hope we haven't bought into our own success after beating the vikings. i'll be incredibly disappointed if we come out looking unfocused and flat-footed

I'm usually on my phone, so I don't see sigs, but I was huddling on the PC the other day and saw your sig. I then decided that you were the best poster on here. Pie for you.

Minnesota blitzed less than 30 percent of the time.

 

Arizona blitzed over 60 percent of the time.

 

I expect St Louis to follow the Arizona gameplan model.

Exactly. I'll concede that I though that his game plan against Seattle was good and almost worked, but the pass happy calling in the Buffalo game was ridiculous, especially after it was obvious that Cam was a little off that day.

why do you think that is ?

 

especially after the Az. game and Minn. HC being an X DC.

because their secondary has issues.

 

there's no way they were going to resort to heavy blitzing and leave it more vulnerable than it already was.

Minnesota's secondary was weak. They needed the linebackers to help in coverage. I think Frazier also runs a Tampa 2 defense where it's usually up to the front 4 to generate pressure.
