Mustachio Cuts Player (and Coach) Profiles: Coach Dan Campbell

MustachioCutsLogo

Ah…welcome to Mustachios Cuts.  Long time you no see me…no?

Il pezzo di merda Dolphins are 1-3 (Mustachio spits on the floor).  Affanculo Dolphins – How could you be so cruel to Mustachio?  You fuck Dolphins fans so much in the first quattro games, you make my whore wife looks like a vergine.

Dolphins New Coach FootballAnd now zoppicare Coach Philbin is no more!  Mustachio was ready to bring in a new coach.

Il Dolphins promote Dan Campbell from tight ends coach to il grande capo now!  Chi e Dan Campbell?  Primo, Dan Campbell is too grande for Philbin’s old podiums…

Secondo, Coach Campbell is a man with fuoco nel suo ventre!

All week Dan Campbell has promesso a more fisico Dolphins team!

Coach Campbell has giovanile energy! He is only trentanove and was last a player in the NFL in 2009!

Campbell was drafted by the Giants in 1999 and started for them in 2000 when they went to the Super Bowl!

By 2003 Campbell was in Dallas, and was coached by the Grande Tonno.  He barely caught over 200 receiving yards for Dallas – Per lo piu, he was a blocking tight end.

He then went to the Lions in 2006 where he had his migliore year as a pro before retiring a few years later and starting his coaching career in Miami, which is the only team he has ever coached for.

Mustachio thinks Campbell sembra some one who can still play.

But he is not playing now – he is coaching.

And coaching very a very fisico style.  In his primo practice Campbell insisted on running il Tapano di Oklahoma!

Benvenuto to Miami Coach Campbell.  Mustachio bestows these gifts on you.  Primo a magico mustache.  This mustache will assistere you in battling each week!

Secondo, Mustchio brings you this helmet to deflect the temperamental fans and media in Miami.  This helmet will help you deflect ridiculous criticism which you can expect to come your way!

    Good to see Mustachio back!

    Campbell could be the first Coach to trip a player on the sidelines with his moustache

    Son
    The wife is going down to her parents this weekend cause her aunt is in town.
    I was going to go to my buddy but the Tenn game is away so the following weekend doesnt seem likely.
    Unless my numbers come in or I do something crazy.
    Maybe I will if I have a kick ass week and get some money put away for the taxes.

  19. ocalahowie says:

    why even bother not trying to offend people any more. no matter what you do some one is going to be offended so just fuck it, offend everyone.

  21. jetsssuck says:

    419 feet with that homer my azz. Score board is at least 100 feet high. That homer was more like 450 ft at least. It probably hit the bar roof across the street in right field

    • jetsssuck says:

      it seems like yesterday because we won game and won game 7 next day.2003 Florida Marlins game 6 eight inning eight runs is legendary in S.Florida. I think the guys name was Bart Simpson. The guy got police protection because fans were so mad at him.

  26. ocalahowie says:

    Remember that
    8 runs, I forgot we where losing that bad but I do recall it was pretty much over.
    It aint over till its over…
    GO MARLINS!!!

    oh shut up, you are a child. you may have had to survive living with dinosaurs but i had to survive before there was even a big bang

  30. ocalahowie says:

    Wow
    Reshad my man #6
    I dont know how this year. I havent seen him more than 3 times and that is making the tackle after they have already gained 30 yards.
    Where the hell is the safety blitz fuckin Coyle and Blow!

  31. Mike E. says:

    The question is, do we care about PFF and what their rankings are? I’d probably give more weight to M13’s opinions than PFF.

    Cubs win!

    Lakers playing here in Vegas tonight, the FN tickets for nosebleed corner seats are $60 counting the $11 service charge. How do these businesses getoff by charging these service charges? To stay in the casino hotel they charge between $12 and $30 for a resort fee.

    Steve

    In a 5 games series, 2 great starters can sometimes be enough. I hope the Mets can defy the odds and beat one of those 2 guys again.

  35. Tim Knight says:

    I heard they said Cespedes’ homer was 444 feet.

  36. steveccnv says:

    We’re trying to plant a tree from a 24″ box, so the hole I dug was 36″ perimeter, and 24″ deep, the problem is there’s a rock in the hole 28″ long oval shaped, but flat on top, that I can’t move. How do I get it out of the hole?

  37. steveccnv says:

    I see the Dodgers are off to their usual goose egg start.

  38. herdfan says:

    I’m happy to see the Cubs win. Back in the day, I was a Cubs fan. I quit baseball with the strike many years ago.

    • steveccnv says:

      Me too, I like other teams better, but would be nice to see them win it all. I went to a Cubs minor league game in Des Moines on 4th of July 3 yrs ago, as bad as that AAA team was, it’s hard to believe they are where they are today.

  39. finfanrob says:

    ‘like they’re looking for a bag of dicks.’

    looking for???? they are playing like they found them and are taking there time inserting them in each and ever one of us here and not caring about playing football.

  40. finfanrob says:

    How do I get it out of the hole?

    cant help you there. i spend most of my time trying to figure how to rock in the hole.

    lmao, you find just the reps scary. they are all frightening. but at least the reps are better comedians. none of them are good for us, but i will take the ones that want less of my tax dollars.

  44. finfanrob says:

    tim,

    i was being serious when i said the reps are more entertaining to watch. i laughed more at their debates. the damn dems act like they dont even know they are on last comic standing

    • Tim Knight says:

      That’s because we know what the Dems are all about. The Reps are dysfunctional. I barely watch the debates because I can’t stay with it. It’s absurd to me.

  45. finfanrob says:

    is there a reason that dude in the dress cant look at the camera when it answers questions

    dude, you know they have commercials during the baseball game, i am need something to change the tv too while the commercials are on.

    and i have no idea what any of them are about.

  47. finfanrob says:

    i am shocked i tell you, shocked. in stunned silence. the dems are playing up the black lives matter. way to go guys, lets celebrate those black criminals that matter

    • Tim Knight says:

      I checked in and caught that. They talk about black lives like they’re fish or something. It’s comical and some people eat it up. They’ve been BSing people for years on this issue as if it’s at the top of the list. Yeah right! You’re all elitists. LOL

  48. finfanrob says:

    ‘i never took a position on keystone until i took a position on keystone’

    and that is how the guy in the blue dress defended taking a position on keystone. omg i am laughing that is too fucking funny.

    judge: so mr bundy did you murder those girls are you a murderer
    bundy: judge, i am innocent. i was never a murderer till i was a murderer

  49. finfanrob says:

    yaaaaaaaa, so we now hit the race thing and now. LETS TAX THE RICH MORE. yippie.

  50. finfanrob says:

    ‘They talk about black lives like they’re fish or something. It’s comical and some people eat it up. They’ve been BSing people for years on this issue as if it’s at the top of the list.’

    yep, they are really good at telling the people, you all matter, we arent going to tax you but the other guy and we are going to give you everything free.

  51. finfanrob says:

    wow, now the big issue is to give away college for free. so great more government spending.

  52. finfanrob says:

    sorry guys, but i was pulling for the mets. i think a mets cubs series would be great.

    sooooooooooooooooooo, come on dodgers kick some met ass

  53. finfanrob says:

    why does that guy keep saying he would be the first woman president

  54. Tim Knight says:

    Oh well back to LA. I didn’t feel it tonight as the game went on. The Mets seemed a little off and the crowd couldn’t get into it.

    • steveccnv says:

      It’s hard to get into 3 hits, Dodgers know all about that, I think they’ve been no hit twice this yr.

      • Tim Knight says:

        The Mets need deGrom to out duel Greinke.

        That said, my goal for the Mets was at least make the playoffs this year so win or lose I’m cool with it. They took a big step towards becoming a good team for years to come. Lots of decisions in 2016 either way, Cespedes and Murphy, they have to sign some of the young pitchers now.

      • steveccnv says:

        They’re saying they can’t afford Cespedes.

  55. steveccnv says:

    On the radio they were saying they were getting money on the mets, because the line was too high for the Dodgers. Kershaw actually wins a post season game, and the Cards, who knocked them out the last 2 yrs are gone.

  56. steveccnv says:

    Everything has to go right for the Dodgers to win, the mets have lots of guys that can get it done. DeGrom looked unhittable in game 1.

  57. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 13, 2015 at 11:00 pm

    Oh well back to LA. I didn’t feel it tonight as the game went on. The Mets seemed a little off and the crowd couldn’t get into it.

    i already apologized. will you stop blaming me.

  58. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, i don’t think we’ll sign Cespedes. I was saying that the team has a lot of decisions to make to make for 2016. It’s not that we can’t afford him, I just don’t think ownership will do it.

    Cespedes could make a lot of money from endorsements in NY as well so maybe that’s a possibility. But I don’t think it will happen.

  59. steveccnv says:

    If he isn’t worth it the Dodgers will sign him, and he’ll hit .250 with 9 homers for the yr, get hurt and miss 40 games. They seem to sign all those guys that kick their butt in the playoffs.

    Nice job Piggy.

  64. Ken says:

    Trying to get excited about watching this team this weekend but I just can’t find it in me. I am so demoralized by how bad we started that even with the coaching change I am having a hard time getting psyched up for the game. I have no expectation that anything significant is going to be different.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I’m actually looking forward to it because of the changes. If no changes had been made I wouldn’t be because of how they looked in all 4 games.

      • Ken says:

        I should be too but I just don’t think whatever the changes were are going to save the season. I just kind of feel that it is a lost season already. I don’ mean to piss on anyone’s cornflakes but the reality is we are likely in for a long season of pain. We are have a rookie HC with no HC experience or experience as a coordinator. He is trying to jump start a lifeless team and he is doing it with somebody else’s staff. He has not had the benefit of offseason OTA and TC to get his system and way of doing things in place. I just forsee lots of pain for us this year. I know Philbin could not continue but the reality is things are likely to get worse before they get better. I just want to see our team relevant for the rest of the year and I am having a hard time seeing that.

  65. Mike E. says:

    I’m not excited about the Dolphins right now, but I will be on Sunday.

  66. jetsssuck says:

    wow it was the 12 yr anniversary at midnight of the Cubs 2003 Steve Bartman incident.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/the-cubs-are-the-team-that-can-make-october-belong-to-baseball-again-032206186.html

    And nobody cared that once the clock struck midnight and the calendar turned that it happened to be the 12-year anniversary of the night Steve Bartman inserted himself into Cubs lore alongside a billy goat. As they doused one another with beers and drenched each other with Champagne and basked in the glory of ousting baseball’s best regular-season team, the Cubs did everything short of swearing this time was different, that 2015 will be theirs like 1908 was.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I think Bartman has a twitter account now and a lot of poeple have publicly forgiven him

      Personally I thought the ball was out of play and Alou brought a lot of unwarranted attention to it

      • jetsssuck says:

        we were down 3-0 with 1 out in the 8th and then Bartman made a mistake that has haunted him for 12 years. We scored 8 runs after that in the inning. I’ve heard he needed to be hidden from fans leaving with police escorts after that game.The police even guarded his house.

  67. Tim Knight says:

    Ken, I hear ya. I guess I want to see if this team can wake up. I’m not too concerned about the staff because Campbell knows all of them and has coached with all of them for 4 years. He also brought in Saunders and made some changes with people he’s comfortable with. I understand your concerns though, I just want to see if they can turn it around.

  68. The Flying Pig says:

  69. Mike E. says:

    I think the Mets should do everything they can to sign Cespedes. Give him a 6YR $140M offer, which is very fair, but not likely to be his best offer, and see what happens. I’m not sure if we can afford that, or more, but if we can, that’s a reasonable offer. We don’t have a guy like him, and I’m not sure we’ll find one. Lagares is big ? with his elbow, he needs Tommy John surgery, and I think Granderson, Cespedes and Conforto looks like a great outfield.

    • Tim Knight says:

      They can afford it, the issue is they probably won’t pony up. I also think Cespedes is going to be looking for much more than that. Think Robinson Cano money.

      • Mike E. says:

        If it gets beyond $150M, I think we let him go. Shame, because we really need his bat and defense. He really is a perfect fit here.

  70. The Flying Pig says:

  71. Mike E. says:

    I think I’m going to write an article today instead of doing Ask Mike. There’s not a lot of things to ask about that we didn’t already cover in the BYE week.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      That sounds good

      sometimes Its easier to just write a blog with your thoughts than to plan something out

      This Mustachio one did not take me a long time to write
      I just had to translate a few words into Italian…lol

  72. The Flying Pig says:

    I think it was worse than that Jetssuck

    I think he actually moved to protect his family

    I remember watching the game live
    and feeling like it was out of play
    Then being surprised by Alou’s reaction to the random fan
    and next thing I know the cameras kept showing Bartman being yelled at by other fans

    • jetsssuck says:

      I’ve heard some bad stories about the fans of that night through the years. It’s really sad what happened.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Its one of the worst stories in Sports ever
        the Cubs fans were classless about it

        Over the years I’ve heard Wilbon (from ESPN) a Chicago guy and Cubs guy bash the Miami Heat and their fans – and I’ve always said to myself – who is this dbag Cubs fans TV personality telling fans how to act – Bartman was the worst incident by fans in ALL sports – he is way out of line

    Exactly Right. Lead these Sheep into pro football players Dan!
    —————————————————
    Lion should never be asked to lead sheep, cause they would eat them. Maybe omar should have said let a Lion show a bunch of pussies how to be big cats….

    • The Flying Pig says:

      He should have said pig

      everyone knows they are the leaders of the animal world
      and we won;t eat the sheep either

  74. jetsssuck says:

    how about our 1st WS title where Cleveland Indians 2nd baseman lets a ball get by him threw his legs in the 8th inning and we eventually won that game to give us the WS. The game is a matter of luck sometimes.

  75. Tim Knight says:

    Mike E, everyone thinks Cespedes is a great fit here.

  76. Mike E. says:

    Tim, Ken

    Mike Trout signed a 6YR $144M contract with the Angels. I think Cespedes should be in that neighborhood. The Cano contract was aberration. Even the Yankees thought it was crazy, and that says a lot! lol

  77. getterdone says:

    Kershaw came up with a gem & redeemed himself in postseason play last nite…wow.

    Ken, I agree with the highest bidder, I thought you meant his agent said something exclusively against the Mets. I don’t think the Mets will sign Cespedes. I’d like them to, I don’t think they will.

  79. Ken says:

    Cespedes is a really good ball player but he is not worth Cano money. Heck Cano is not worth Cano money. Cespedes has not been a high average guy and while his power numbers in the past have been good they have not been elite numbers. I don’t think he is worth the same contract as Mike Trout. I would take Trout over him any day and pay Trout more money than him in a heartbeat. But this is the way MLB when you are the prize FA people will overspend and Cespedes is likely to get his payday.

    • Tim Knight says:

      But his agent is going to shoot for the moon. I really don’t care what he gets, it’s not likely to be with the Mets anyway.

  80. Mike E. says:

    No response to the Trout contract? Trout is also 5 years younger than Cespedes, and has a lot more HR’s in less time.

  81. stangerx says:

    “You fuck Dolphins fans so much in the first quattro games, you make my whore wife looks like a vergine.”

  82. stangerx says:

    And a big sorry to Cav. I know the hurt.

  83. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    I think you’re just giving in to the notion that the Mets won’t spend. They’ve seen what a playoff team can bring to the park, and I think they want that. I’d expect they go after Cespedes harder than you think.

  84. getterdone says:

    Pro Football Focus has had a lot of good things to say about the Raiders’ offensive line. While the run blocking hasn’t been consistently great, the pass blocking has been among the best in the league. In fact, PFF rates them the very best in the NFL.

    They listed the top five offensive lines by percentage of pressured dropbacks and the Raiders were right at the top

    1. Raiders (17%)
    2. Cowboys (18%)
    3. Falcons (18%)
    4. Saints (20%)
    5. Browns (21%)

    This is even considering the Derek Carr was pressured on 43 of 127 dropbacks (33%) and sacked four times on Sunday. Which I guess says more about how well they were protecting Carr over the first four weeks.

  85. D says:

    Bog thing with contracts is what year they are in, and where you ranck compared to other FA’s. A rookie vs a first contract, vs a second contract all makes a big difference. Some of them have a lot of risk reward questions asnwered, and a lot of time the player in a 2nd contract will be wanting max pay and max years as a combination where as a 1st contract might be looking more for money over year, etc. Latter career contract might be able looking for a championship team or playing near your home town. These all kind of factor in on where the guy lands and for how much.

    Cespedes is kinda of in that spot where he needs to hit big with his contract and the timing is pretty good. I see him going for max money and max years, moreso than looking for a fit or home, or championship chance. Im sure those will factor in if the numbers are close, but im thinking bidder wins out with him/his agent this year.

    • Tim Knight says:

      This is his last chance at the big payday, he’s going to go for as much as he can get. The Mets also have to sign deGrom and Harvey to solid contracts because they almost can’t balk at a good deal at this time because it will still be life changing money and we own their rights for like 4-5 more years.

  86. getterdone says:

    THERE IS NO REASON PHINS SHOULD LOSE SUNDAY!!!

    Ken Whisenhunt is 4-28 in his last 32 games as a head coach. 4-28! He is also 1-7 coming off of the bye. That, according to gramsey, is the worst record in NFL history. His overall coaching record is 48-68. He has been an NFL head coach for 7 years and has never had a record better than 10-6.

    Bill Parcells once famously said, “You are what your record says you are.” (or something like that). Ken Whisenhunt is not a good NFL head coach. There is no way to argue that he is, and there is no reason to give him more time.

    • Ken says:

      Ken Wisenhut almost won a SB. He is a more polished HC with lots more experience than our HC. His team has been playing pretty good ball with a rookie QB that was supposedly not ready for the NFL. I think we are in for a dog fight this weekend.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I agree, I don’t think it’s going to be an easy game. But we have to win this game if we’re going to save the season because the Titans aren’t a top team. If we can’t beat them than who?

  87. Mike E. says:

    Tim, that was incorrect foresight now in your hindsight….lol
    Gabe has transformed his once 6’4 340 to about 330-335, but now it’s mostly all muscle….he’s got quickness and is showing he’s a very good pulling OG and also gets to the 2nd level with ease.

    Piggy, didn’t the Ravens deny making those allegations about the Pats and ball pressure?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      yes

      but not whether the formations they were using were legal

      it wasn’t really formation as the writer states
      it was the business of about inelligble receivers

      http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2014/story/_/id/12150444/2014-15-nfl-playoffs-league-says-new-england-patriots-substitutions-vs-baltimore-ravens-legal

      the patriots were declaring RBs and other skill players ineilligble – never seen it before
      it confused the defense

      It was made illegal this offseason
      but not before it affected that playoff game

      It was tricky by Belicheat
      it was legal at the time though – the Ravens asked the league to investigate whether it was legal

      I don;t think the Colts game was affected by the game balls used
      but I do think the Ravens would have won the game if this “deception” was not permitted

      • Tim Knight says:

        There is a rule about position numbers designate who is eligible and who is not. That’s why when an extra OL comes into the game you have to declare him eligible. So the NFL should have picked up on that in the game.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        saying the ravens complained about “formations” is selling it short of what it was

        The Patriots declared receivers inelligble and played a 4 man line
        I don’t think there is anything in the rulebook about declaring a skill player inellgible until last offseason

        https://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/03/25/nfl-passes-rule-change-aimed-patriots-ineligible-receiver-tactic/uBqPWS5dKYdMYMcIiJ3sKO/story.html

        The NFL specifcally changed the rule to make sure what happened in that game doesn;t happen again

        it wasn’t just complaining about a formation
        The patriots declared their Rbs inelligble and the dumbass officials announced it
        and there is no such thing as inelligble skill players as far as I know

        its one thing to declare an OL elligable
        its another to say one is not

        What if the RB would have went out in the route and caught a TD pass
        Do the officials say – no he was inelligble if there was no such thing

        It was deception
        it wasn;t so much that the fooled the Ravens – it was that they fooled the officals

    Good. Went out West for 2 weeks (LV & LA). Good timing it seemed considering what’s been going on with the Fins franchise. I saw 0 part of the Bills game; caught the Jets game somewhere in Q2 as I got up around 7:30 am in LA.
    Seems the right dismissals were issued; not sure that I agree with Ross that the timing matters and that the remainder of the season can be salvaged but I don’t blame the guy for doing what he did when he did considering the amount of $ he’s invested in the team already.
    The attitude had to change in that locker room; you could tell the players weren’t playing with any confidence (except Landry).

    Campbell’s playing days saw him being around Sean Payton for 6 years. We can only hope he learned something from him (in 1999 as a Giants rookie; Payton was NYG QB coach). From 2000-2002; Payton was Campbell’s OC. Both went to Dallas in 2003 but Payton was assistant HC & QB coach (& passing game coordinator in 2005) under the Parcells there until he left to NOLA in 2006. Parcell’s didn’t officially have an OC in 2005-06 but apparently Payton did alot of the bitch work and possibly had in game decision making for Parcells. Sparano was Campbell’s TE coach in Dallas from 2003-2005; from 2006 onward Sparano in Dallas was Assistant HC/OL & run game coordinator in 2005-06. Maurice Carthon was officially OC in 2003-04 there in Dallas until leaving for Cleveland in 2005.

    • Al in MIA says:

      Mario Williams received the same treatment in Buffalo when he signed there as a high priced FA. He was seen as underperforming but eventually turned it on as the coaches rebalanced talent around him and Mario getting more comfortable in the new system.
      I expect some level of learning curve outside of the only one Suh knew in Detroit; think Suh will eventually turn it on and show everyone that he’s a bigger force than what he’s shown now to date in Miami.

  115. getterdone says:

    Patriots LT Nate Solder will miss the rest of the season with a torn bicep.
    Solder’s injury was initially labeled as an elbow issue, so this comes as a big surprise. It’s a huge loss for New England, even if Solder wasn’t playing that well on Tom Brady’s blind side. Look for Marcus Cannon to step in at left tackle, as the Patriots continue to sort out the interior of their offensive line. Solder just signed a two-year, $20.62 million extension through 2017 last month.

    …from Mando:
    The Miami Dolphins are working on their preparations for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans and with a new coaching staff (more or less) comes the possibility of lineup changes.

    A source tells me that although the team has not fully decided on changes and will monitor what happens at practice this week, there are indeed possible changes being considered at right guard and wide receiver.

    I told you this morning I would bench Greg Jennings for DeVante Parker. The Dolphins are certainly considering benching Jennings. But his replacement would more likely be Kenny Stills instead of Parker.

    Stills had the best game of any Miami receiver against the New York Jets, as he caught five passes for 81 yards and a touchdown. He had a 42-yard reception in that game.

    The team is also going to look closely at putting Billy Turner at right guard ahead of Jamil Douglas, per a source.

    Douglas, a rookie who has started all four games this season, has struggled so far. He is one of the lowest-graded guards in the NFL, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

    So the Dolphins are going to consider returning Turner to the spot he held down at the start of training camp. Turner, whose reputation is of a physical player who still needs refinement, fits into the narrative new coach Dan Campbell has laid out for being a “nastier” team, particularly up front on the offensive line.

    Pig, yeah but according to Philbin, he likes to move his OL around for cross training….lol smh!
    —————————————–
    Im not a fan of doing that with people you draft as starters. I can see it for players you may envision as backups, and maybe they hit a spot they excel at and emerge as a starter, but for guys you envision as a starter, pick a fucking spot and really develop them there.

    Tim, you really dont see other teams doing that with starters, you see other teams out of desperation putting a guy they drafted a LT and use him at LG, or something like that but they dont just rotate them all around. The solid OL units in the NFL have guys who have been at those positions most their careers. Its not as easy to transition from LT to RG as you may think, its going to take a lot of time to get use to the first step or the punch and hell even how to get out of your stance at OG vs OT and vice versa. LG to RG or LT to RT not as significant but does also present some issues and will take some time to adjust. Definitely not one of those things where a really talented player at one of those positions will have same success at another just swapping them out. Some can some cant.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Thomas has never been an established starter. Albert plays only LT, Pouncey only C except for last year but we know why, they kept James at RT exclusively this year. Thomas, Turner and Douglas are not established starters so you basically just made the same point I did. LOL

      I also don’t think players playing a few different spots is as complicated or stunting in development as some of you do. Think about yourself in a robot sort of way, I’m glad I’m more versatile than that. Knowing a few roles can also help the mental part of the game to know what everyone else is doing because you been there done that.

    Hell yeah, i was hoping this would happen. come on Dowling and Lippett.

    • D says:

      I havent ever read about who the PS guy was that picked off Tanny but in back of my mind i have always assumed it was Dowling. I hope they give him a shot, i was a fan of his the year i studied his tape prior to draft.

  153. getterdone says:

    Here are three ways practices have been different:

    Emphasis on competition: Campbell said on the day he took over that he wants his team to compete — and that starts on the practice field.

    Campbell’s first practice last week included the “Oklahoma drill” — unusual for a practice well into the regular season. There is also more of a focus on individual drills and competition, especially on days when players are wearing full pads.

    “He will call players out and have them compete against each other one-on-one,” tight end Jordan Cameron explained. “Each position he does it. It’s the whole mentality. That’s all he stresses. There is no thing he stresses more [than competition].”

    Campbell also added another change Wednesday — a full-padded practice. Campbell spent a portion of practice pitting the Dolphins’ first-team offense and scheme against the first-team defense and scheme, which he called “good on good.”

    Starters would typically only face the backups and scheme of the upcoming opponent. In Miami’s case, for example, the starting offense and defense would only face the scout team emulating the Tennessee Titans.

    But Campbell wants both of Miami’s starting groups to compete against one another, playing its own scheme to the best of its abilities.

    “Now they’re coming off at each other,” Campbell said. “You set a tempo and you make it competitive where there is a winner and loser, guys. Do you understand that? To me that helps your sense of urgency.”

  154. getterdone says:

    Campbell keeps score: According to rookie guard Jamil Douglas, Campbell keeps a points system for which group and/or players are winning drills. This adds another element for players to keep tabs on who wins the day.

    Douglas and other players said practices have had more energy and enthusiasm.

    “When guys enjoy practice, you actually get better,” Douglas said. “You have that feeling that you want to keep competing with your team.”

    • D says:

      Way we handled it a review of game filma and if we didnt grade out well fromt he game film we had extra to do, so you were basically enticed to make sure you brought you best game every friday night because it could mean a less brutal practice come monday.

  155. getterdone says:

    Shorter practices: An under-the-radar wrinkle Campbell added so far is shorter practices. Campbell believes increasing the intensity level for a shorter amount of time is the winning formula Miami (1-3) needs.

    For comparison’s sake: Philbin’s Week 4 schedule listed Wednesday’s practice as one hour, 55 minutes, and the next day was exactly two hours.

    Campbell’s schedule this week has Wednesday’s practice at one hour, 39 minutes, and Thursday at 1 hour, 46 minutes.

    The cumulative difference for Miami’s two major practices of the week is 30 minutes.

    “It’s shorter, but it’s short and sweet,” Cameron said. “These practices are more intense, get in and get out, but work efficiently.”

  156. D says:

    Tim, what i meant was whenyour drafting a starter. When tomas was drafted we had a need at the posiion, actually we had a need at LT and LG at the time. We drafted him with expectation of getting a starter, and then we treated him in development like we were draftng for a backup. Moved him here and there and all over and never devoted time to refining the skills at on position. I consider that to be bad resource management. Versatility is good, but you want to talk about round peg square hole, if the peg is made for a certain hole, put it in that hole (dont get excited with all the hole tale FFR), you moving it around her and there and there means you are trying to foce it other places. I just dont like it, they should have had vision for hwat they were drafting and who they were drating to know if he would work out, they major league screwed the pooch on that. Same with Turner, and right now its sorta kinda looking like that with Douglas. How many times does the versatility bullshit have to end up badly to start considering it a bad idea?

  157. D says:

    When we use to practice it would be 3 fucking hours of high intensity shit. Again, i understand that NFL vs HS and probably cant beat on each other that long without it wearing them down, but they do play for 3 hours, so at least one or two practices at full intensity and for a full 3 hours would condition them for their game time environment i feel.

    • getterdone says:

      You have to factor in tv time outs, injury delays, and who has the ball….so in practice, if ran full bore, Campbell’s 1:46 min of intensity would be about equal to a full game’s worth of actual playing time, snaps on the field….even more so for depth guys that just get an occasional rotation in live game action.

  161. Tim Knight says:

    D, it’s because sometimes these young OL haven’t established themselves at any one position so they try to find the best 5. It doesn’t matter where they were drafted or for what, coaches are looking for guys who can do the job because they’re trying to win games. So they keep working and looking for the right mix. Thomas, Turner and Douglas all got plenty of snaps at their respective positions and Thomas and Douglas won out so far. That could change until they find the right combo but it’s up to the players to go take it in practice, not their draft status.

    There have been OL drafted high as LT prospects and when they fail they end up at RT or sometimes G. So they try them wherever until they find a fit. It’s not a perfect science.

  162. ocalarob says:

    Oh Gee, we have a new coach and practice harder now, this changes everything!

    it’s like a golf swing, you have to have knowledge behind your plan of practice.

    simply running players into a wall wont work.

    it’s not about talent, it’s about scheme and execution.

    • getterdone says:

      scheme & execution can’t work without 110% motivation, effort, intensity, & desire.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s always about talent first or teams wouldn’t go bonkers jumping all over each other trying to land talented players.

      • ocalarob says:

        Talent is equal, there’s not much difference in talent so they cancel each other out, it’s not a coincidence that the same teams are good every year.

        The pats if they exceed us in talent it aint by much.

        they execute, they have a better scheme.

        it doesn’t matter that the pats lost their LT like it does with us

  163. ocalarob says:

    You have to keep the other team guessing as to what you run, if they know all you’re going to do is throw short passes all they have to do is stop that. we are a simple team that is easy to defend.

    there are different facets of attack, one has the QB under center the other has the QB in the gun.
    i think this has to be mixed up, you can’t run this offense strictly from the gun and expect it to succeed, you have to have a mixture of play action, deep passing, running and short to intermediate passing.and an occasional misdirection
    all we have done is the short to intermediate passing with an occasional handoff out of the gun.
    we are very predictable and easy to read.
    if we are going to beat the guy on the other side like our new coach is suggesting it would help a lot if the guy on the other side didn’t know what we were going to do.

  164. ocalarob says:

    one thing this team has been terrible at is short yardage on 3rd down, they run long drawn out sweeps and get stuffed, this has been going on since philbin got here.

    3rd and short is crucial to extending drives, if you have the pats in 3rd and short they qb sneak brady everytime, he’s unstoppable.

    you would think after 3+ years our offensive coaching staff would know how to pick up short yardage but they don’t.
    that tells me that we are dealing with people who are less smart than our opponent and the bad news is Lazor is still here!

    • Brian in NY says:

      The Pats OL is also much better than ours, and has been for years.

      • ocalarob says:

        I think one of the reasons for the Pats success is Brady gets rid of the ball very quickly, his footwork is solid he doesn’t make unnecessary movement, sometimes when he throws a WR screen his feet are set up to throw before the snap, he doesn’t have to move them, he gets rid of the ball quickly and this helps his OL unlike Tannehill who a lot of times doesn’t feel pressure and holds the ball forever. the throw with his left hand was very bush league

        i think a lot of the success to the pats OL has to do with their QB

      • Brian in NY says:

        Agreed

    Howie, there is a difference between Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. We hate Tom Brady as Dolphins fans but he’s good at what they do. Ryan Mallett is a 2nd tier QB at best. Talent matters. It’s what makes the world go-round.
