Not defending Shula, but if you are going to call for his head, at least have the whole picture. There's more to it than just total yards/points.

Someone post the teams with highest TOP, offense, and defense statistics. It'll shock some of those who assume you can't have a high powered offense with high TOP and a solid defense. Actually I'm starting to believe most of our TOP is achieved from just how sluggish our team is before getting a play off, not the plays themselves.

 

We already have the number of drives extended on third downs with Cam's legs in another thread, interesting numbers. I would love to see how many drives were extended, and points gained, from Ron going for it on fourth down. I wouldn't doubt that our offense overachieved this year, the horror.

True. But we all know he's coming back, so it's kinda useless to call for his head. G-man is going to give Shula tools to improve and succeed. We will get a clearer picture next year. I hope that we are in the upper right hand quadrant.

In the playoff game, even people who don't follow football heavily asked why the same goal line play was run multiple times

C'mon man

Sorenson can defend Shula all he wants but that was beyond stupid. It was myopic.

I think Cam called his own number on the 4th down.

 

Could be wrong

The ones with blinders on are hilarious. They can't notice that most of our play calls were not the right calls to make in crucial situations. And because you notice that, but they can't, their rebuttal is "Well if you know so much why don't you call up JR now and ask for a job herp derp". How about you just pay attention more or don't say anything if you don't understand football?

A lot of times this year when we needed good plays in critical times, Shula would call a play that made you go "wtf?". Teams will have film on him next year. He's going to have to adjust and come up with new strategies and learn to call the right plays in the right situations. Something he hasn't given me any hope he can do.

There was a thread about Shula the other day that teeray came into and dropped some knowledge in, he may chime in here too.

 

Anyways to me, I know what Shula is, and what he isn't. I don't think changing OC's alone will correct our faults. Some teams that you play against you can mask your deficiencies. Against the top teams in the league they get exposed, badly, it happened to us in the playoffs.

 

If we can't surround Cam with talent on the OL, and at the receiver position this offseason, it won't matter who our OC is.

 

I do have faith in Gettleman though, he knows what needs to be done.

We are the only team on the left side of the graph that made the playoffs.  We need some serious talent infusion on the field and at the OC position.

 

But, what about teams like Chicago, Washington, Detroit, and Minnesota? All had better offenses, but no Playoffs.

 

You guys are a little too carried away with having a high power offense, i.e. Chud.

 

You want an offense that manages the game: Carolina, SF, and Seattle. The three last NFC teams standing.

 

Shula is the right guy for this team atm. We just need more down field weapons.

We scored more points this year than we did last year and finished identically in ranking (18th). The only difference really is a drop in yards, but we made up for it with greater time of possession and fewer turnovers (so more points-per-drive). We have an efficient offense, we just need to shore up the right side of the line and find a solid wideout to put opposite of Smitty and we'll have a much better offense.
