#2830356 Make or break year for Shula (I hope)

Posted by fieryprophet on 25 June 2014 - 06:25 PM

Lol

What great talent did we have in Rivera's first year compared to Shula?

You severely undermine / undervalue the effect of playcalling on football.


You know why fans always blame their offensive coordinator when things go wrong? Because fans are dumb. They think teams should value scoring at all costs when that can be a recipe for disaster.

In 2011 defenses didn't respect Cam at all as a passer so he started out ripping teams apart with the deep ball. But those days are long gone with Cam working on protecting the ball and the decline of Steve as a deep threat. And Ginn was not a replacement, he was a one trick pony with big catches and big drops. Teams actually respect our QB now and he has had to refine his game to eliminate the mistakes, which made his a bit over cautious at times. But he learned a lot that will help those explosive plays return this year if he gets the time in the pocket.

Shula was average. The offense was average. The talent was average. This is the same malarkey thrown Rivera's way back when the defense was blowing games left and right. We'll improve as Cam grows and our young talent grows with him. Shula helps that far more than some hotshot who thinks his plays are awesome and refuses to engage his young QB in the offense.

Shula has been poor everywhere he has called the plays.

At some point you gotta stop making excuses and do more with less.

After all, that is the mark of a great playcaller.


That's a load of bull. No amount of offensive genius can cover up a lack of talent. Bill Walsh didn't do crap without his loaded 49ers squads. Shula wasn't the problem, the offense did what the offense was designed to do: control the ball and take pressure off Cam to do everything. We didn't squander loads of skill players, we made do with the hand dealt us and just didn't make all the plays we needed to move on.

Shula is not anywhere near as bad as everyone seems to think. Our offensive line and poor rushing aside from Cam was far more of an issue.

Hey, Hardy needs his balls busted a bit for not showing better discernment. He's smart enough to know he screwed up even if he's innocent just for getting himself in the predicament in the first place.

It's a damn good thing I'm not President because Portugal would be a nuclear wasteland right now.

Well, now you have no excuse to not study. . .after all, the team motto is "Keep Pounding."

 

 

That motto works in several ways, now that I think of it. . . :cool:

It comes from how offenses have been ranked since the inception of the league

Sent from the Carolina Huddle App


That's always been considered flawed, however. We're no juggernaut but we were far more efficient than most offenses with more total yardage. And considering our personnel last year I have no idea how we could have been dramatically better.

Where's this 28th ranked offense coming from? We were 18th in points. Last I checked they didn't put yards on the scoreboard.

What is a haiku?

Some sort of weird poetry?

I'm not doing it.

Are we really going to make judgements based on 15 passes? Really?

Bell got a $2m plus tender, this has no effect on him.
