    As for the original post, I thought "continuity" was the reasoning that was given for not firing Marty originally and that when Cam and Wade left they went ahead and fired Marty anyways because there was no longer continuity?

    No. You didn't.

    Why was Cam hired as OC.

    Please... one sentence answer will suffice.

    I did... so you got it wrong.

    Let me help you.

    Cam Cameron was hired by Marty when Norv left because he ran the same system as Norv. He kept things mostly the same from a SYSTEM standpoint.

    I'll expand, but I know I've already lost you.

    SYSTEM does not mean you have the same exact pieces in place. But it does mean the terminology, plays, & overall identity remains very similar.

    Now that I've lost you, perhaps I can try to bring you back.

    Did the identity of the offense appear to be similar last year? :icon_shrug:

    EDIT: I should have waited to pose that question as you certainly can't comprehend where this is going.

    And as I said...
    "Cameron but that's not the same thing.
    We did not have a winning team at that time, we were completely in a rebuilding stage. Though I do agree that it was a good decision. At least worth a try.

    Bringing Norv here as an OC might have been a good decision. As HC was completely stupid!!!
    I think AJ bought into the "so easy, a caveman can do it" theory even more than the fans.

    BOTTOM LINE... Cam was NOT our HC! You want continuity... how about someone with a similar working structure and personality as Marty?"



    Things were similar last season because it was still Marty's team. Similar situation to Switzer with the Cowboys. A year later, they became Switzer's team and they sucked.

    Look dude... you posed only TWO questions in your original post:

    1. So how is it that Norv was familiar with this offense?

    2. So how could Norv have possibly been familiar with the changes of the offense over the past five seasons?

    Your questions don't mention anything regarding "HEAD COACH".

    I was trying to help you answer them, but as usual... you don't seem to be open to the idea that you might be wrong about your assumptions.

    Did B4L have a straight face when he posted that nobody has ever suggested that the Norv hiring was bad before on this forum?

    He didn't ask that question in this thread.

    He only asked the 2 that I just posted. And neither question mentions anything about Norv being the HC. Only about his familiarity with the offense.

    Like I said... Norv's system is NOT similar to ours. No need to repeat myself. Scroll back and you'll see what I stated.

    Since Norv is our HC, I didn't think I'd have to spell it out.

    No I haven't. Never or anybody else.
    Except when asked about AJ's decision, the answer being "continuity."
    Nobody EVER discussed what exactly this "continuity" thing really is... except "in AJ I trust."

    Dude. You have said it time and time again. Move on already. Broken record is right and you crying "NO NO NO" doesn't change it.

    We never discussed the so-called "continuity."
    It was always an answer but NEVER discussed.

    Hey B4L, you crap is getting old, every other thread is yet another "Different" view of the same subject.

    It deosnt matter how you spin it, your hate for Norv is obvious.

    Quit finding "Different" angles, it all boils down to the bottom line.

    No. We never ever discussed it to this extent. The ONLY thing ever mentioned was "AJ hired Norv for continuity reasons and that these continuity reasons were that Norv was once our OC."

    It NEVER got past that!!!

    This was a good discussion that you destroyed.

    Angles, nothing.

    This was discussing what the continuity is as opposed to it just being the answer!
