That's the kind of STANDARD our team no longer follows. During our dynasty, we seemed to be #1 or #2 offense every single year. So crazy that a coordinator who has a top 5 offense in back-to-back seasons will get fired unceremoniously.
Nowadays, we're just happy to finish in the top half of the league in offense... I hope Harbaugh re-ignites the offense.

1998: Scored 325 points (20.3/g), 15th of 30 in the NFL.
1999: Scored 245 points (15.3/g), 30th of 31 in the NFL.
2000: Scored 210 points (13.1/g), 29th of 31 in the NFL
Not sure you can take anything out of that the Cardinals had some of the worst teams and players in the league then.
2002: Scored 450 points (28.1/g), 2nd of 32 in the NFL.
2003: Scored 270 points (16.9/g), 26th of 32 in the NFL.
2003 was just a bad year for Oakland... Gannon only started 7 games and you had Rick Mirer as QB and Tyrone Wheatley as RB.
