Of course the part that I take issue with is Shula. Perhaps it's not all his fault, but the offense took a step back with Shula---plain and simple.
Sorry, man. All of this his offensive philosophy complements our defensive philosophy is just drivel in my eyes. It's a way to rationalize a mediocre offense. No reason to be a Shula apologist. It is what it is. Hopefully our new consultant, as well as our new receiving corps will help Shula to raise his game.
One of the things that stood out to me when talking to a former offensive player a week or so ago was this.
I remember complaining about how conservative Henning was and he explained that was more because of Fox and literally said that "type of offense complemented our overall philosophy". So it may be more than drivel.
I even went a step further to ask him who the best coordinator he played under was, he said it wasn't fair comparison's but he thought we "have been more balanced under Shula which is a good thing".
