What does the Ramsdell hiring say about Shula's future?

47 posts in this topic

Ramsdell's bio closely aligns with the Air Coryell offense. Shula has been associated with a more conservative ball control offense.

 

Our offense last year was clearly lacking  the explosiveness that it had during Chuds first year with basically the same roster.

 

Could this mean Shula may be on a short leash ? The position was quietly created and only discovered because of two of our own doing their own research. 

 

My hopes is that it indicates Shula has been given different marching orders as to the offense we will be running in the future. If he stumbles we already have the guy on staff that can make it happen.

Hopefully.  Shula has already gotten one more chance than he deserves...

The scary thing is that our running game (11th) and time of possession( 5th) did not look bad on paper until you realize it was mostly done by Cam.If you take Cam out of the equation our offense was abysmal.

I would say it is to keep him focused on what works and stop trying what doesn't.

I wonder if Ramsdell can somehow pry Stewart off the exercise bike this year .

In 2011 the Baltimore Ravens went 12-4 on the back of a solid defense, but the offense was clearly lackluster. Cam Cameron wasn't a good enough offensive mind to get the team over the hump, so Jim Caldwell was hired after being axed in Indianapolis. His role was officially named "quarterback coach," but the overtones were obvious -- they wanted a guy inside the organization to take over if Cameron struggled once again.

Nine months later Caldwell took over when the Ravens dismissed Cameron, they won the Super Bowl.

Hopefully this means Shula will be managing one of his dad's steakhouses very soon. Please though, just don't let it be the one in Chicago that I frequent.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
