Honestly Shula's offense likely gives John Fox the biggest boner ever. 

 

 

Shula is dictating his own tempo, controlling the clock, AND putting up something close to 30 points a game.

 

I would like us to get plays off a bit faster as more plays = more points, but it's hard to complain.

yeah, i would like to get more plays and more points on the board as well, but i'm coming around to this philosophy. i'm only coming around, tho, because it's working. our offense moves the ball and can get into the end zone and our defense is stopping the other team. 

 

i'd like to see us against chip kelly's eagles and see what we do now that we've got it figured out and are gelling. seems like the panthers would love having even more time to burn.

Time of possession really is a huge factor in the NFL. It softens up the opposing team, allowing us to run them down when we're ahead late, and it keeps our defense fresh and ready to wreck things when they get back on the field. It takes away opportunities for good opponents to score and makes it difficult for bad ones. As long as we continue to retain the ball and finish with touchdowns we'll be golden.
