Not going to happen this year but that will be part of the growth going forward. Ron did fire the ST coordinator last year and upgrade special teams this year. If we regress he will be expected to fix it.

Rookie head coaches need time to grow. The evaluation process starts now, year 4 and will continue through year 5. It's a good contract to facilitate continued growth. Ron needs to show he can coach a team that has had a little success. If we regress next year he gets one more to show he is still growing. Firing coaches often is a bad idea. Look no farther than the Browns for an example of what that looks like.

In Topic: Fox and the Broncos

Disrespect Fox all you want but that defense is playing pretty well in the playoffs considering it is missing it's 2 best players. I guess that is all DelRio's doing like many said in 2003. I remember Dan Morgan coming on this board a few years ago commenting about how Fox would step in, take over the D and they would start playing better. They slipped while he was away.


Peyton chose Denver because of Elway and Fox. He always wanted a strong defense and running attack. I have heard Gil Brandt call Fox a "defensive genius" on satellite radio. I won't go that far but the Broncos are playing pretty good D right now in the post season.

In Topic: Shula's Red Zone Issues....

You could very well be right.  We don't know for sure....the details of what happened or why Tolbert was pissed.


My point was that should never been the play call in that space against that defense....there were so many other options than go right at the best part of that defense.


It's over and done.


Gettleman strikes me as someone who will take the right action...but, the offense, needs an overhaul...stating the obvious, and its not just the players.


Hopefully, it is remembered how Shula got tihs job.


I don't know. It was 1 yard. Would have been just as much complaining if we had spread them out and missed a throw. I like my chances with Tolbert behind a blocker to get 1 yard. If Shula wanted a sneak he would have gone 1 back and spread them out a bit more. Mr Spotlight Newton saw all the cameras and took the ball out of Tolberts hands. That's the chance you get when you let your QB change plays. Sometimes you get a TD pass like in the Saints game. Sometimes you get stuffed wasting a couple of players in the backfield.

An example:  Newton blaming himself for the 'QB sneak' business is ridiculous.  The OC should have said, 'they are expecting it, they are stacked, we need to do x or y or z; but, not the QB Sneak unless we spread them out.   The OC is to be objective, Newton is not.  I just use that as an example.  


I am not so sure Shula called a sneak. They are giving Cam more and more lattitude to check out of stuff. On that play he had Tolbert behind a fullback. Tolbert looked pissed walking off the field after that play. Cam screwed the pooch on that one.
