He probably should have moved on the college ranks but the NFL $ lured him up. Surely he will not starve and can try to work a Pelinni like career. More $ than most

Isn’t he the one who recommended Peetz to Orgeron? That’s enough for me to say no.

Unless you bat 100% with your decisions or recommendations, you are garbage.

Our QB decision-making was horrible this year. That had nothing to do with the coaches except Coach Brad Johnson. Burrow knew to run when there was nothing open down field thus becoming an additional threat to the Defense. That Offense centers around using the running back as a wide receiver out the backfield to free up Wideouts down the field. RB wasn't used enough to be a threat to the defenses.

I think Max has a lot of potential, but he has to stop listening to his dad and start listening more to the coaches and get in the film room. The days his dad played were way different than now.

Before you beg for JB to "come home" see what Bridgewater said about this offense. They didn't practice 2-minute. At all. It's one thing to bring the Saints playbook to baton Rouge and draw em up. It's another to run an offense, from game-planning to practice to adjustments to play-calling all the plays. The Goat QB/WR's made him look better than he ever was as an every day OC candidate.

Brian Kelly is an offensive guy and has been a head coach at the FBS level alone for 20 years. He'll get him right. Quick question for you guys. Who do you think got Lincoln Riley to add a power run game to his air raid? It was Stoops. Stoops may have been a former DC, but coaching under Spurrier made him realize that you needed a powerful offense to win big. Kelly will get him straight.

Ensminger was always underrated. Brady got all the credit because he was the “new face” in a transformed offense. But Burrow even said that the offense really started to click in bowl game practice when they finally had time to work together (before Brady joined). Brady was obviously great in terms of bringing in play design and route combos to get guys open, but they also had generational talent (look what the players are doing in the NFL). But O/Ensminger were running the practices and program. And Ensminger was calling the plays.

I would have to agree a lot of that falls on the QB. None of their QB's were very talented and others had already peaked and started to decline. Carolina can bring in whoever and you are going to get the same results unless they make some changes in personnel. With that said bring on the Brady train.

The Panthers have struggled offensively, with Brady’s offense not staying ahead of opposing defenses and/or its own tendencies and tells.

Coach O pumped up his wonder boy hire to make himself look good. Worked so well that and NFL team hire him away. Wonder boy had no experience call plays or formulating a full game plan. He made in game suggestion once inside the redzone. You got that? He was a suggestion guy. It was E's a.. on the line as the play caller not wonder boy.

You people are retards who are comparing college to the pros. It’s exactly like saying coach Saban sucks because he wasn’t successful in the pros. The pro game and college game are absolutely nothing a like and head coaches at the pro level definitely do not just allow you to run anything you want or coach the entire offense exactly the way you want like he could do here at LSU and in the college game. And I’m not suggesting that he didn’t have any help from Steve E. but to say Ed O just pumped the man up as someone he isn’t is completely narrow minded.

Les Miles is gonna be a thorn in ur opinions side there Chief! Good Ol’ Leslie had LOADS of Generational Talent that didn’t win any Championships while attending LSU.

Unpopular opinion but he got wayyyyy more credit than what he was. He just had the most all around offensive talented team that has existed.

Correct opinion.

Just because you have a race car doesnt mean you can drive it to its full potential. He had a great team at LSU, yes. But he still had to operate it correctly to get the full potential from it, which I think we all know he did.

"[Brady] just had the most all around offensive talented team that has existed".... Ensminger also had all that offensive talent in 2018, and did little with it.

To hell with Joe Brady, he left LSU at a time O needed him. Karma.

Bruhhhhhhhhh stop it with this. If he had gone to Carolina and win three Super Bowls then took over the New England Patriots, the you me and everyone else would be ducking his dick as a former LSU guy Trashing someone for losing a job wherever turnover is routine suggests a big insecurity

I'd take him back. But honestly, BK needs to make his hires in a hurry. With signing day approaching, the other recruiters are having a field day with LSU targets and commits.

Ensminger was good but Joe Brady run offense. They were all fortunate to have the best talent collectively in college history. STACKED

Joe DID NOT run the offense. How many times does this have to be dispelled.

Clarity comes every week as to who was responsible for 2019. Burrow is the GOAT, and all around him have been cut loose from the latest employment.

Burrow made him look good and he hates recruiting. Don’t want him back.

Negative. He made the offense unstoppable and knew how to use LSU’s talent correctly, at every position. Want him back.
