Who would you rank as the Panthers BEST Offensive Coordinator in Team History....

I liked Chud a lot, but having our leading rusher in the 2012 season opener be a WR who ran for 6 yards was embarrassing as hell. Combine Chud's refusal to call short pass plays with Brady's refusal to call deep pass plays, and you've got a solid OC. 

As it is, yuck. Henning wins by default

We have an offensive line that is horrific in pass pro and a QB that has long been plagued with ball security issues....

you really want Brady to be pushing a bunch of deep pass plays and double moves?  That sounds like the perfect recipe for the O to just turn it over and prevent us from having a shot.

gotta agree with those saying Henning. if Chudzinski had stayed around longer then he might take it. the success he had in his seasons here had as much to do with the weapons at his disposal as anything else. it's a shame the team never really achieved that potent two tight end look again. not to mention still having Deangelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Steve Smith, Mike Tolbert, and a veteran offensive line. I always appreciated his feel for incorporating gadget and trick plays, though.

but Henning did more with less, and his offense was one of the few offenses in Panthers history that carried the team at times. you always felt like the team had a chance, even when it came to erasing deficits. and having the ability to build a viable running game no matter who was toting the rock was something I think I took for granted at the time.

Brady just isn't in their class at this point. whatever advantage he might have in play design (dubious IMO, especially compared to Chudzinski who basically wrote the playbook that Shula used in 2015) is offset by the lack of feel he has shown for getting weapons involved. he could grow into the best OC the Panthers have had, but reading the tea leaves, he might be gone before that gets a chance to happen.

Shula was infinitely worse than Davidson. Even Davidson wouldn’t have wasted the best player we’ve ever had so badly. With Davidson I’d be willing to bet we win the Super Bowl in 2015

I think the Panthers have the best win% and most playoffs appearances under Shula than any other OC.   I hate that brand of football but at some point the team success IMO has to factor. 

not saying his the best or was good....but Shula can't rank at the bottom in Carolina.

Which would be different from Sunday, how?

Chud is so overrated here. Teams were stacking the box and daring Cam to throw. Cam's long ball was great and he had a prime Smitty catching them...and a really decent Oline. 6-10, 7-9.

Year 2 teams were teeing off on constant zone reads and the narrative was "Chud's trying to showcase his genius to get a HC job." I never understood this take as I don't see how sucking leverages oneself. It worked on getting him that HC gig, so what do I know. However, his results elsewhere suggest I might have been right.

Henning. 03 season we had a very underrated offense. All those “cardiac cats” drives at the end someone had to call the plays to keep the defense off balance.  In 2004 when smith went down he revamped the offense and Muhammad had an insane year. In 05 we probably would have been back in the super bowl if all our running backs didn’t get hurt.
