I understand why some folks are saying that short of a flame out, Cam will still be here....well...what exactly do you guys call the offense that shows up at away games? Prolific? Effective?
Just do the math. Before the Redskins game I think they put up a stat that showed 2 offensive TD's in the past 4 or 5 road games vs like 20 something offensive TD's at home. That is a HUGE variance and directly correlated with Cam's offensive schemes. The offense sucks on the road and they've stagnated on a whole. Flacco may be putting up more yards, but I can't see Steve Bisciotti looking at this offense, the amount of money and draft picks they've invested into the offense, and thinking that he likes the direction they're going.
There is a reason why Cam was only given a 1 year extension. There is a reason why Jim Caldwell was brought in to be the QB's coach. There is a reason why Cam said he was "surprised" they brought him back.
Regardless of what Harbs, Ozzie, and Bisciotti say to the media, I cannot 100% believe that Cam was NOT on a short leash to begin with.
Jeff Tedford could be interesting.
If he were gone some names I would consider... Wisenhunt, Turner, Gnapp, Hugh Jackson, Tom Clements (GB QB coach), Brad Childress,
REgarding the other guys...Knapp and Whisenhut would be interesting...but I'm not sold on Jackson and Childress.
If Pat Shurmur is cast off from the Browns, he could be interesting.
I'm just not really positive about Norv. I like that he has a history of producing really great offenses and the terminology wouldn't be too unfamiliar to the current group of guys, but I'm not 100% that the Air Coryell is the way to go anymore. I think they really need to see Flacco in a completely different offense designed to get the ball out ASAP to an actual open receiver. Not that Norv's offense doesn't do that more than Cam's...but a big part of me really thinks that this offense just needs fresh blood with a new concept.
Flacco is not the problem with this team. Flacco is actually a VICTIM of an incompetent offensive coordinator.
Sooner or later Biscotti will realized that and force the issue with the offensive coordinator.
Cam is and always has been the limiting factor with this team. The public humiliation that they are about to receive next Sunday at the hands of Peyton Manning in M7T Bank Stadium is going to be eye opening.
