      Can we PLEASE stop bashing Whit for the percieved OC troubles.  For the past 14 years, everyone has bashed the offense and in the same breath bashed Whit for going through so many OCs.  Granted a few questionable decisions were made (Mainly BJ).  But for the most part, he has tried to get legitimate folks in places to succeed.  Bash him for one or the other, but not both!

      I agree. People want splashy hires, he did that with Chow, Erickson and Christensen. They didn’t work out. He tried hiring from within. That didn’t work. Taylor was a very successful QB coach, which was needed. 

      I think he needs to find a guy that has the same philosophy that he has, which is the right philosophy. Run the ball from the spread, have a QB who is efficient and a threat to run in the option game and don’t turn the ball over. 

      We scored 40 a game going this route this year. And that increase in scoring came when Harding increased his role in the offense. I say let Harding have a shot at it.

      Not just BJ, but the Roderick/Schramm three step was a joke. Christensen was a terrible move. This whole co-OC approach is wrong, I think. 
      I wonder if Ludwig would come back?

        It is a common way of doing things across football. The running and passing coordinators. You still need a leader a “guy” to make the call.

        Co-OC’s work all the time all over the place. The key isn’t Co-OC or no Co-OC, it’s finding people who believe what Whitt believes and want to do that.

          Wrong. You need the OC, the leader, the one guy to lead. 

          You need the guy behind whom everyone else falls in line. 

          OC, QB Coach, RB Coach, WR Coach and OL Coach. 

          Co-OC never works.

        Roderick and Christensen thoughts….. it’s easy to look back and say they were bad moves.  At the time a lot of fans thought they were great moves.  Fails yes, lack of a valiant effort, no.

          Everyone wanted DC and he was by far Whitts worst hire. Chow leaving was bad luck, BJ wasn’t ready and TT has been fine don’t get why he left.

        He was the best OC we’ve had under Kyle. We routinely scored in the 30’s and he pounded Alabama. We’ve had nothing even close since.

          I believe TT has been his best hire. Numbers may not back it up but I think TT leaving is awful news.

            Nope. I have never been a fan of the tap dancing while waiting for an opening. I don’t want to see QBs doing the flamenco. Hand it, pitch it, throw it or tuck it. This ain’t “Dancing with the Stars.”

              The RPO (the tap dancing) and the delayed runs worked very very well with Moss. He was masterful at reading where the holes were opening, and squirting through. I am very much a fan of the RPO. So there.

                You know what else worked for Zack?  When he leveled people.

                  You know why he leveled people in the backfield? Because he hit the hole at the line and built a head of steam.

                    Ok. That’s not because of delayed runs.

      Ummmm. No. He has been grossly incompetent as far as the offense goes. Hell hes admitted to it more than once by saying “we have to figure out the offense”. He made several bad hires. The buck stops with him. I’m hoping #10 is the guy – but read what I just wrote TEN”  Virtually none of the OC’s left for greener pastures.
