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.

 

It's not just about INTs, it's also about completion % (up), TDs (up), 3rd down conversions (up) and time of possession (up.)

Like it or not Shula is staying. He and Cam have a close connection and everyone knows we were severely lacking in offensive weapons. Also, 12-4 is hard to argue with.

Personally, I would fire the fuck out of him but he will stay on for the above mentioned reasons.

100000% lets not kid ourselves we are still the panthers. We don't make bold moves

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?

 

I'm not sure if you want Norv Turner giving Ron advice on being a head coach.

btw WTF is with Shula and his "Illegal Formations"  hes good for what atleast 4-5 a game?  Did he not check the NFL rule book before popping the backyard football plays into the playbook?

no its not, illegal procedure is on the players, the formation was by design of the OC.

lafell has zero awareness.  if olsen or another TE is lined up on the LOS, the outside wr must be off it.  football 102

And when the players shift around.... It is on them to have the right number of players on the line. That is why they generally point to each other when they shift to account for it.

That is definitely a player error. You can argue coaches should have them prepared to not make mental mistakes but lining up is on the players IMO.

They get called on illegal formations on plays they have run all season. They aren't random illegally drawn up plays
