Shula's Red Zone Issues....

48 posts in this topic

We went from top in red zone scoring percentage 3/4s of the way through the year to struggling at the very end. What changed?

The red zone issues are IMO the biggest reason he should be relieved of his duties. We cannot seem to punch it in on a consistent basis once we get inside the 20.

I hate to say it.  But this team misses Chud.  The offense from 2011 and the 2nd half of last season combined with this years defense would have ran the 49ers out of town.  Shula has to go.

I agree Shula has to go but I don't think bringing Chud back is the answer. The way players spoke about him after getting fired in Cleveland is a huge red flag.

Shula eats alot of clock with his play calling. However when we need him to kill a minute at te end of the game he can't. Shula has also been bailed out numerous times by Cam's running ability.

Did I want Chud back? No... I don't think so, but do I want Shula gone? Yes, and I have since the Arizona game.

No no no!  Don't put words in my mouth.  I am not suggesting they bring Chud back.  That would be stupid.  My point was that there was a noticeable drop off between the offense under Chud and the offense under Shula.  If I were the Panthers, I'd be on the phone with Norv Turner yesterday.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
