They ranked 23rd and 30th in 2005 and 2006 in offensive efficiency according to Football Outsiders. The year he took over the offense (2007), then were ranked 10th. And that was with Derek freaking Andersen at QB.
Unfortunately, they fell back to 29th in 2008. But again...that was with Derek Andersen at QB.
The Panthers ranked 32nd in offensive effeciency the year before Chud took them over.
Then they went to 4th in his first year. Yeah, Cam Newton was a big difference...but, he was still a rookie QB with a dearth of talent around him.
They were still 10th in offensive efficiency.
This is a team that fired their GM mid-season when they realized how awful their talent pool. They had injuries to 2 starting O-Linemen, Jonathan Stewart and their best WR was a 33-year old Steve Smith.
Give the guy a semi-decent QB and he'll work wonders in Cleveland.
