Shanahan Or Koetter?

Bucky Brooks did a list of the top 10 offensive coordinators on nfl.com. Shanahan was number 9, but two positions higher at 7 was Koetter. Who would you rather have?

Personally, I'm pretty excited about Shanahan. Koetter did a great job at times, but he got stale here and I think it was the right time to move on, despite the stats.

I mean, people always talk about how well Ryan played without this and without that...well, you can say the same for Koetter coaching a top 10 offense/top 5 passing offense in yards without this and without that.

I said it back when we hired Dirk, even though I tried to be ok with the hire

Why the **** would you hire the guy that ran the lowest ranked offense and think he'd do a good job.

No way Koetter should be hire than Shanny on any list, unless the list is those likely to get the Axe

the only thing I didn't like about Koetter's stint here is that he forgot how to run the ball after having previous success in Jax. guess that was TD's fault though.Shanny has some pieces in place to be a monster, just hope the revamped line can be halfway descent

Koetter became very predictable. In fact, defenses started calling out our plays before we ran them. Shanahan seems to be able to run multiple plays out of the same formation to keep opponents guessing. Also, I've noticed Shanahan has an uncanny way of getting his WRs/TEs wide open. I'm with Shanahan and believe he'll take Matt's game to the next level.

Shanahan was given rookie running backs Koetter had michael turner and steven jackson and who did better. No doubt Shanny.

Koetter got roasted for his "we didn't forget how to run the ball" comment.

Truth is all eggs were put in the MR basket when we positioned for JJ. So far all offensive coordinators have delivered...whether we agree with their style or not.

I think Shanahan will produce...MR has to go get it(playoffs).

Shanahan is a current Falcon.

Shanahan is part of a staff that seems to have its act together.

Shanahan has a track record of proven success, even with sub-par talent.

Koetter is a Falcon reject.

Koetter was part of a regime that couldn't get its act together.

Koetter's results varied wildly according to his talent. He could not overcome sub-par talent, resulting in a #32 offense.

Shanahan is a clear choice over Koetter. Koetter is only as good as his players. Shanahan's offense had success with Brian Hoyer at QB, a collection of no-name RB's, an injury-depleted o-line, and a cast of no-talent bums at WR. That squad may not have made the playoffs, but they were in contention until the very end.

In fairness to Koetter...many asked for him(philosophically). He delivered.

We shouldn't have to dis Koetter to trust in Shanahan.

Shanahan has something to deliver...our other OC's have.

Negative comments are only disrespectful if they are untrue.

Can you prove any of my Koetter remarks to be untrue?

I didn't say that Koetter sucks, or can't coach. Everything I said is accurate, if somewhat less than pleasant or kind.

Why do people keep saying #32 offense?

Koetter's offense in Jacksonville, the year before we hired him, was the #32 offense in the NFL.

Koetter is a Falcon reject?

He wasn't retained. He was fired. So yes: he is a Falcon reject. Edited by Oldskooler
