Buffalo game is the only game I had a real problem with Shula. Other than that he has been really good

 

The game plan against Arizona was hot zoo garbage.

Wait, Smith is recommending the play be a pass to him? Who woulda thunk it!

It is only dumb if it doesn't work.

Not true at all.  We may have had 6 points but we had well over 200 yards of offense in the first half alone.  If we don't drop those easy TD catches we are up big and cruising instead of pressing and throwing picks late.  The game plan was fine but the execution was not.

I really don't think "drop anything that hits hands" was part of the gameplan.

It's too early for this.

It isn't too early to say he is doing the right things like making adjustments  and wanting player input.  Cam is really coming on and playing well.  So we don't know how things end up but he deserves the praise so far.  Even if he constantly deflects it to the players.

Arizona was sending pressure up the middle time and time again. At the end of the first half it briefly looked like Shula got it when he had Cam roll out with a run/pass option and run a few zone reads. Yet in the second half we just chucked the whole game plan that worked and kept Cam in the pocket to get killed.

Perhaps. The San Fransisco, New England and Saints games will be huge barometers, but after a slow start (not unfamiliar with this team) the offense hasn't been the complete train wreck many seemed to expect.

The o-line was really porous that game while Arizona did a good job of blitzing.  Still if not for dropped passes we would have been up by 17 at least.  In the second half we still kept it close until very late again making critical errors.  We didn't chuck the game plan at all but it seemed that nothing worked.  I can't say it was his best plan for sure and I am sure he made some mistakes but that would have been easily forgotten if we had built a big lead instead of letting them hang around.

We moved the ball all day against Zona. Just because we settled for two field goals, a interception, and s turnover on downs doesn't mean the game plan was bad.

4th quarter was pretty bad though
