I know this has been discussed but is there anything to this?
I just emailed a buddy of mine that knows a boat load of coaches around the country... I will let you know what I learn.
the coaching fraternity is pretty liberal with info... they seem to know movement on staffs before it happens
I hope they choose someone else but that is just my opinion .
Very interesting... Please keep us posted.
I see this a lot. But, just because he was let go this year doesn't mean he's not a good OC. See below stats:
In his nearly 10 full seasons as an NFL offensive coordinator (San Diego Chargers from 2002-06; Baltimore Ravens from 2008-2012), Cam Cameron was a part of 100 victories, averaging 10 wins per season. He helped San Diego compile a 47-33 regular season record as the offensive coordinator for the Chargers, while the Ravens notched a 53-24 regular season mark during Cameron’s tenure in Baltimore.
The average experience of Cam Cameron’s starting quarterbacks during his 10 seasons as an offensive coordinator was 3.2 years. If you don’t count the two seasons that Philip Rivers was a backup to Drew Brees (Rivers’s first career start was the first game of his third NFL season), the average starting experience for Cam Cameron’s starting quarterbacks during those 10 seasons was 2.9 years.
Under Cameron’s direction in San Diego, Philip Rivers earned a Pro Bowl selection in his first season as a starter and Drew Brees earned a Pro Bowl berth in only his third year as a starting quarterback. In that third season, Brees recorded the third highest QB rating of his career and recorded a career-low seven interceptions. The tremendous success of future Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson, as well as Ravens running back Ray Rice is well documented. However, as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Cameron helped Ronnie Brown lead the entire NFL in total yards from scrimmage over the first seven games of the season before a season-ending knee injury. In his 11 seasons as an NFL head coach or offensive coordinator, Cameron’s offenses led the NFL in points once, finished among the top five on three occasions (1st, 3rd, and 5th), and finished in the top half of the NFL nine times. The two occasions his offenses weren’t among the top half of the league in points were his first season in San Diego and his only season in Miami.
After only his fourth season, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco became the Ravens’ all-time leading passer in yards (13,816), TD passes (80), and completions (1,190) and was second in completion percentage (60.8). Flacco’s 44 regular season wins in his first four seasons were the most ever by a starting quarterback in his first four years in the NFL. Flacco is the only starting quarterback in NFL history (since the 1970 merger) to reach the playoffs in each of his first four seasons.
In 2011, the Ravens played eleven regular season games against teams that finished among the top 10 defenses in the NFL in points allowed. The Ravens averaged 23 points per game in those 11 games. In his 11 seasons as an NFL head coach and offensive coordinator, Cameron has been part of teams that were plus-49 in takeaway/giveaway ratio.
The 2006 Chargers offense directed by Cameron is one of only 28 teams in NFL history to average 30-or-more points per contest. It is the 21st highest-scoring offense in NFL history, and 14th-highest over the last 25 years.
In his last 125 games as an NFL offensive coordinator, the teams Cameron was a part of in San Diego and Baltimore lost a total of only eight games by more than seven points.
He also seems to be a pretty decent QB coach/developer!!!
"It's my hometown, and that's big for me," Henry said. "It's about playing for the home team in front of family
Remember that Flacco came from a tiny school and was far from a finished product when he came into the league.
"averaging 10 wins per season." We already have this. Everyone is wanting undefeated season each year.
Hey Hey now what part of what I said was not true. Don't be hattin! I got me a DV hell.
Averaging 10 wins a season in the NFL against other NFL teams and NFL defensive coordinators. I think you are being sarcastic though.
