You're missing the point. Calling one play that works does not mean you are suddenly knowledgeable than the OC. How many people on game day threads have not called for example a screen pass and then it works. Are they suddenly better than the OC?
what you have to add in there is the time at which the play was called. The game was on the line as there was only 3 mins left. Shula called some BS play that Cam quickly disagreed with and suggested another one. In this type a situation an OC should feel comfortable with what he just called. Letting Cam call the play was a pussy move by Shula and a way out of making a critical decision.
I can not wait for the end of the season when Shula is put out of his misery. I can see a difference when a qb calls an audible from what he sees in the defense, but jesus, when Cam realizes Shulas play is bullshit and suggests another one while on the sideline?
Shula said Newton was energetic and engaged on the sideline. He reviewed plays with Anderson and offered input. In fact, when the offense was getting ready to take the field with 3:11 left in the game, Newton suggested a play-action pass. Shula went with it, and wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin made a 12-yard catch on a slant route."I was thinking pass but not that pass. I was like, 'Yeah, that sounds better,' "Shula said. "He's got a lot of really good football ideas."
December 16th 2001, The NFL witnessed Bottlegate. Since its Browns week for the panthers and today is a historic day let I remind you of the cluster fuq that was the Browns/Jags game. The only time in the history of the NFL where a booth review was used after another play was already ran. Needless to say, the ruling was overturned and the dog pound got ugly.
