But in Belichick's case you have to admit he's had some very good offensive coaches as well.  McDip**** may have been exactly that as a HC here in Denver but as an OC he's top shelf and Scarnecchia is another OL guru like Heistand so he has surrounded himself with good coaching talent.

But I agree 100% with the need for continuity on offense which is why our constant changeover of OCs was so frustrating when Cutler was here.  He'd get 1/3 to 1/2 of the offense mastered and then have to start all over again.  Lack of a consistent approach to his offense was Lovie's Achilles Heel.

Agree 100% on McDaniels especially. Shanahan and Lynch publicly that they were comfortable with snagging Jimmy because of McDaniels and that he would develop Jimmy well. That is a lot of respect to give. 

 

Between the rotating OC position and most of his tenure having bottom 10 cast around him and he was a ruined investmemt. Of course he was never going to be Rodgers, Peyton or Brees but he could have been so much more than he was.

What Chicago never quite got, or the Bears either, is that Cutler was drafted by Shanahan to be his Elway v2.0 and take them to another SB but he got fired and with that the "Cutler Plan" here was scuttled and McDip wanted none of him.  Not his style, or Lovie's for that matter so Cutler basically fizzled.

Jay was never built to be a disciplined pocket passer but at least we should give him credit for willing to accept that and try his best without complaint.

Cutler was drafted to be another Elway/Favre type who won with his mobility and his arm plucking victory from defeat with 4th Q comebacks and in that regard he did well.  He's in the top quartile in 4th Q comebacks in NFL history.  But the offense was never wide open enough for more of that nor did he have the OL and WR to make it work.

Devin Hester should be in the HOF as a Return Specialist but God himself could not have made a #1 WR out of him or a #1 pass blocker out of J'Webb.
