    we CAN'T keep changing offensive coordinators

    after all the talk all year i realized something, this offense will never be dominant or start off fast with a new offensive coordinator every season

    so what if mularkey goes off the run sometimes players will know what his plays are and how his offense runs and better execute plays in this system

    this system is for a decisive quarterback who can throw to receivers and let them get YAC and a pounding run team when we do run

    keep mularkey around for another two, im sure saban sees the same things we do and although we think we know everything saban is the head football coach lets leave it in his hands on what happens to mularkey or what mularkey does

    I agree, I think Mularkey will stay. His play calling has vastly improved as the season has gone on and I think it is better for the chemistry of the team if he stays.

    Mularkey is no longer the problem. He has adapted to what he has, and the team is WINNING. That's all that matters.

    if you're happy going 8-8 forever and enjoy watching a solid defense and mediocre offense, you stay with joey and mularkey. there's nothing wrong with 8-8. it's only half bad! every game we've won has been an incredible defensive effort! we're winning playing wanny ball!

    Mularkey's been here less than one season, his record as O.C. is 6-7

    Joey's Record is 5-3.

    And if you're a Daunte supporter, his record was 1-3. And I don't care if he was healthy.

    Stick with what everyone is getting to know. It will pay off.

    have u seen this team after the bye week? after we got used to the offensive system?

    truth is you won't win it all with a mediocre quarterback/offensive coordinator.
    the truth is also that you won't win it all with new schemes for players to learn every year

    mularkey has to stay the next two years

    I think the playcalling has improved since the first 6 or 7 weeks of the year as Mularkey is more familiar with not only the personnel but knowing what to do to account for injuries and how to mask weaknesses with effective play calling.

    Having said I still maintain he gives up on the run too early in contests. He still occasionally tries to outsmart himself, although he is getting better at not calling bag o' trick plays just for the sake of being too slick for his own good and that of the team. He like other coordinators can get predictable once they reach a certain comfort zone with the abilities of certain players. For instance the short sideline passs one line beyond line of scrimmage to Welker on the right side was stopped in its tracks last week as it has been for at least the previous two weeks. And it appears to be thrown always on 1st down. That is just a small example of needing to know how to put your third receiver in better position to achieve maximium efficiency instead of playing in the hands of the defense.

    The need for continuity will probably keep him here. But this fan here is just not sold on Mularkey. It absolutely sucks changing coordinators year end and year out. But if Mularkey fails hindsight will offer much clarity if after '07 or '08 we are still complaining about play calling that keeps this offense mediocre. If there is a proven coordinator available who fits Saban overal plan and goals for this offense he needs to strongly consider changing coordinators.

    our line can't block for 3-5 seconds all the time to give joey time to throw down field, the times he does he overthrows chambers

    chambers doesn't fit this system this year

    which is another problem with keeping mularkey but read my point above
