Chances we keep Shula?

He got the job only because no real candidates would replace Chud because of the job

security issue....everyone, including us, thought RR and his staff would be gone after this

season.

 

Promoting Shula helped keep a familiar face with Cam...it really was a no-brainer because we just didn't

have good options.

 

But RR is going to be retained, and our offense is pretty woeful.  True that we lost all our guards and we

don't have any weapons for Cam, but I don't think there will be many people who say Shula did a good job.

 

Will Ron be loyal and fight for him?  Will Getty give him another year and try improve the personnel?

 

Your thoughts?  We'd be an attractive landing spot for a good oc, wouldn't we?

He'll get a box of donuts and a thanks for your services card.

A fan can hope, at least.

The chances he keeps his job are high. But they shouldn't be. Our offense was in the bottom half of the league and he pooed his pants down the stretch.

 

We are in a precarious situation right now. Ron has 1 year on his deal left...do you extend him one year and see what happens? If we miss the playoffs next year is Ron gone or do you extend him another year for one last shot? How does all this affect hiring of coordinators?

his cast surrounding his QB was the weakest we have fielded in years....yearS.

I think Riverboat Ron Gambles and does a 180 on Shula.  He needs an aggressive offense to go with an equally aggressive defense.  IMO I think a former HC, not shula, that can help Ron become a greater coach would help.  Also how can we go out and draft WR in the first 2 rounds like you people want and then watch Shula groom them into mediocrity?

Shula isn't THAT bad. He's an average O.C. Our real problem on offense is WR/OL.

Seattle, San Fran....they all run complimentary offense to their good D.  Which is what Shula did.

 

The other teams mentioned?  Strong OLs.

I don't know it seemed like the same personnel from the past 2 seasons. Smitty is obviously getting older but Cam should be developing. We saw Cam succeed in clutch moments for the first time but no real improvement in his play. Such a big deal was made about "conservative Cam" taking check downs and protecting the football. His interceptions went up by 1.

 

We can argue about personnel or statistics but at the end of the day it comes down to one question for me: Can we do better than Mike Shula? I say YES.
