2000: (Pitt) 18th in total offense
2001: (Pitt) 3rd in total offense
2002: (Pitt) 5th in total offense
2003: (Pitt) 22nd in total offense
2004 (Buff) 25th in total offense
2005 (Buff) 28th in total offense
2006 (MIA) 20th in total offense
2007 (MIA) doesn't matter Cameron demoted him to TE coach
2008 (ATL) 6th in total offense
2009 (ATL) 16th in total offense
I know that this is a broad generalization and not necessarily reflective of his chops as an OC, but it makes one wonder how much 2008 may have been an aberration due to no one expecting the Falcons to do anything.
I forget how long Buffalo has been so awful. Being demoted in 07 might have been the best thing anyone did for him. That team was 1-15. Those were some good Pittsburgh offenses with Kordell Stewart and Tommy Maddox at QB.
