logic is sketchy.  my favorite part is in the comments,.......... "So…… each time in my career I came up with one really good idea….. I should have gotten calls from firms to take over as their CEO?"

 

 

here is part of article;

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

As the Redskins continue to add names to their list of potential head-coaching candidates, the guy who is now running the show in D.C. seems to be missing the most obvious one.

Especially as the Redskins reportedly prepare to go to Charlotte to interview defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.

While in the building, why not also talk to Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula?

In only one year running the offense in Carolina, where the head coach is a defensive specialist, Shula has managed to get the most out of quarterback Cam Newton, from both a production and maturity standpoint.  As coach Ron Riveratold PFT Live last month, it was Shula who decided during a slow start to the season to scour over all of Newton’s plays while at Auburn in search of concepts and plays that may work.

And the idea worked.  The Panthers finished with an 11-5 record after a 1-3 start, nailing down the No. 2 seed and a home playoff game in the divisional round.

But Shula hasn’t even gotten a sniff, from the Redskins or anyone else.  Given what Shula has done with Newton, teams with franchise quarterbacks who have yet to reach their full potential (i.e., Washington and Detroit) should at a minimum bring Shula in, if for no reason other than to pick his brain about how he has gotten the most out of Newton.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

............of course, someone should proof the record of 11-5 he quoted

If someone wants to pay his airfare I will fly to D.C., rent a car, get him at the airport and make sure he makes it to the interview on time.

if the offense was being executed with more consistency, shula would look more enticing.

aren't we one of the better offense in terms of 3rd down, redzone, pts per drive etc?

 

just playing devil's advocate.  We don't have big numbers but overall this year we have been pretty consistant.  O just doesn't have the possessions to have big stats.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
