Erickson has been successful everywhere but San Fran where he had to use Mariucci's WC team to play his scheme. He's a great coach.
I like Shaw.
Kelly's teams run flashy spread offenses with little substance and no complication. Its an old formula that doesn't work with NFL defenses. Not to mention his Oregon D's have consistently sucked.
Erickson was 31-33 in Seattle, and 9-23 in San Francisco. He has made the playoffs zero times in six seasons as an NFL HC. How does that suggest that he's been "successful everywhere but San Fran?" He's 65, so he isn't going to get any better.

What exactly do you consider substance? Or are you just using a buzz word that makes you sound like you know what you're talking about?
Not that is really reflects on an offensive-minded HC how his defense plays, but this is just further evidence that you really don't know what you're talking about. Oregon hasn't given up more than 23.6 PPG since Kelly became HC in 2009. That's top 30 kind of defensive numbers. But you're right, Oregon's defenses "have consistently sucked."
If you don't think that Kelly's offenses can work in the NFL, particularly in Carolina with the types of weapons he can need, just look at some of the principles we're running. Look at what Washington is doing this year. Look at what Peyton Manning has been doing for the vast majority of his career, and what New England is doing this year after BB met with Kelly this off-season. Obviously Peyton and Brady aren't running zone read plays, but they're using the same HUNH principles that Kelly preaches.
