He helped the Rams improve to a 7-9 record following a 1-15 season in 2009, the second-biggest turnaround in the league in 2010. He guided St. Louis’ offense to improvements in nearly every category including total yards, time of possession and third-down percentage, while they also scored 114 more points than the previous year. In addition, the Rams committed just 21 turnovers in 2010, tied for the ninth-lowest total in the NFL.
I think this guy is perfect for a situation like the Jets are in. He had a rookie QB in Bradford and under his guidance Bradford threw for 3,500 yards and completed 60% of his passes. After he left Bradford's's completion percentage dropped to 53%. He's only 47 and according to reports he will be fired at the end of the season bc the new owner wants his own guys and wants to make a splash. The fastest way to get to the top of the potential head coaching list is to turn a bad situation around. That's what he did in St. Louis and i think he would be willing to do it again. As long as Rex promises to let him run his offense the way he sees fit. No more ground and pound. Shurmur was also the Eagles QB coach from 2002-2008 right in the prime of McNabb's career. This guy knows how to coach and develop QB's. Exactly what we need.
