    I believe Gary Kubiak and Mike McCarthy did as well. So, without counting the Patriots...about half of the super bowl winners in the last 10 years had HC calling plays.

      Any idea why he was fired by Carolina? His offenses were good the last few years (great in 2015).

      Charley Casserly just tweeted that Shula's hiring was an "excellent move". On the other hand, he thinks that squirrel on his head is an "excellent move" too ....
      I googled a few articles about it, and everyone seemed stunned that he got fired.

        All that's left to do now is get Cam Newton and Greg Olsen and we are SET.


        What?

        "No...I didn't."

Does anyone have those stats? Sean Payton comes to mind. Didn't Bill Walsh call the plays also. Just a very small group.
          Mike McCarthy?

                He hasn't won anything yet but Mcvay called his own plays this year and that worked out well.

                        It's because Carolina has no idea what they're doing......though the team is competitive the front office and ownership situation is a complete dumpster fire.

                          Good hire. More experience added. Chain of command established. Off we go.

                            I actually like the hire, experienced and Shurmur is going to have his hands on the offense anyway. There is more to being an OC to calling the plays and he should be the perfect guy to do this job knowing Shurmur is calling the plays. How many top tier guys are going to be OK with that? Probably none.

                              You guys don't really understand all that goes into being an OC. No way a guy like Shula sits passively by and doesn't offer any input in game planning or schemes. Wheat happens when they play a team that Shula had success against and Shurmur didn't. You guys still think Shula would have no say?

                              It's OC by committee and I'm OK with that because the unit needed so much attention. I see this as a good thing, because i don't want any rookie coaches that have not been coordinators with proven success.

                              Also good to have some young talent come through our doors as one day, maybe Shula will be our OC, instead of grabbing an idiot like mcAdoomed
