  9. BoulderPhinfan says:

    It sounds like Ross is thinking long term with this hire which probably means we’re stuck with Gaze for the next 4-5 years regardless of the wins/losses.

    I still don’t get why did we hire this guy without interviewing any of the playoff teams coordinators like Jackson. DId they really think they’re gonna lose gaze to another team? I highly doubt it.

    • D says:

      Maybe he just fit like a glove in their opinions. Ihave had interviews where i left them knowing i wanted to hire a guy, there have been times i have continued my search, but there have also been times when i hired the guy on the spot and discontinued my search.

      I feel a lot like you though, i kinda wished they had interviewed Jackson before closing the search, but its kinda the way they felt about it i guess, i doubt though it was fear driven, but more like they done the research, probably were already leaning a little bit that way and when he knocked it out of the park, made their move.

  10. D says:

    I figured they would keep Rizzi, special teams coaches unless they just suck, usually get to stay.

  11. D says:

    Wonder if the “power over the 53” is basically so Gase can decide if he wants to continue with Tanny or not. Power over the 53 wouldnt really come into affect with guys like Dallas Thomas or Turner, etc. Those would be no brainers, and a GM would likely replace them if the coach wanted it, even if he didnt have that power. That makes me think power over the 53, is for someone the organization might have been holding on to that the coach may not be able to work with.

    Now, Im not saying Gase doesnt want to work with Tanny, but i think that control over the 53, is at least partially about putting that in Gase’s hands to do with as he sees fit instead of forcing him to work with him if he doesn’t want/feel he can. It would suck to have to start over at QB, badly, but maybe thats one of the things Philbin pointed out in his exit interview, is a coach not having that power, boxes them in, and maybe they are trying not to make the same mistakes with Gase.

  12. D says:

    Damn where is everyone, this is usually peak posting time.

  13. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I think tanny buys gaze a couple of extra years. If he shits the bed with tanny he can always say that he didn’t draft tanny so he needs to get his own QB.

  14. CavalierKong says:

    Rizzi is a good ST coach, so kudos to Gase on his first official move.

    From Sunday: Dolphins intend to upgrade at guard, plus their thoughts on other offensive positions;Heat,Marlins,UM: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/sports-buzz/2016/01/dolphins-planning-to-address-offensive-line-dolphins-heat-marlins-canes-panthers-notes.html#storylink=addthis

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      We’ll see but I have a feeling miller is gone.

      Running back: The Dolphins want to keep Lamar Miller, who finished tied with Adrian Peterson and DeAngelo Williams for 10th in the league in per carry average (4.5), but whether they re-sign him “depends on the economics,” according to a club official.

      Translation: This comes down to his asking price and Miami won’t overpay.

      If Miller wants more than the Dolphins are comfortable paying, they’re prepared to move on and let Jay Ajayi compete for the starting job. They believe Ajayi (who had a 3.8 per carry average) has starter’s talent. The Dolphins don’t expect serious talks with Miller for several weeks.

      If the Dolphins cannot strike a deal with Miller, free-agent options to pair with Ajayi include Doug Martin, Alfred Morris, Chris Ivory, Matt Forte, Chris Johnson, Ronnie Hillman, James Starks and LeGarrette Blount. But Miami doesn’t want to spend big here.

  19. D says:

    Oh BTW, i wasnt trying to sound like a soothsayer saying look my guy Cousins worked out, told ya so. I had us drafting Tanny, i still think it was the right pick, but i did like Cousins, just thought he needed more time that we could really give before he would start playing like a decent QB. He was a raw QB prospect with potential. Looks like they have finally gotten him to play up to it.

    Wilson was someone i had slight interest in when i saw him at Senior Bowl. I saw the stats he put up at Wisconsin, but i really didnt buy into his hype until i saw him at Senior Bowl. He was scrappy, and looked like a real gamer. I told my wife i thought he would be pretty solid if whatever team took him were able to move the pocket or roll him out a good bit so he could see over his OL. He looked retardedly small out there, and ill be honest i thought it would take him a lot longer to develop. He’s a steal now, but when he was drafted i think a lot of people actually had him a round or two lower, so id say he was draft spot on where he needed to, same for Cousins, and really same for Tanny.

    I just hope Tanny gets back on track because he has the higher ceiling than those other 2, he’s just no where near his, and not where he really should be at the 4 year mark, and those guys are pushing theirs and/or exceeding them.

  21. D says:

    Looking at Chicago’s run/pass distribution, and how they utilize a receiving RB i think Miller would be wise to stay. Granted, Chicago had possibly the best hybrid RB in the league in Forte, but Miller posses a lot of similar attributes, Forte being a bit stronger in power running, and pass defense, and Miller having slight better home rune ability, every time he touches the ball.

    Looks like Chicago, despite playing from behind, commits somewhere between 20 to 35 rushes a game, they platooned their backs, Langford /Forte, which i think we have an equal pair with Miller/Ajayi. They also targeted Rb’s pretty significantly, Forte was generally in top 5 in receptions on the team. As far as Miller goes, i think Gase could easily convince him how well utilized he would be in his system just by those numbers. I am still not sure though that it wont come down to money, despite what Miller says, and im not sure we can afford to blow a ton of money on him. If we dont we may look to get a guy like Devontae Booker, or someone like that with a pick in a day 2 to early 3 range.

  22. D says:

    Forte in latter stages of his career probably isnt as expensive as re-signing Miller TBH. Im not sure though the upside isnt with re-signing Miller as much as i really like Matt Forte.

  23. D says:

    If the Dolphins cannot strike a deal with Miller, free-agent options to pair with Ajayi include Doug Martin, Alfred Morris, Chris Ivory, Matt Forte, Chris Johnson, Ronnie Hillman, James Starks and LeGarrette Blount. But Miami doesn’t want to spend big here.
    ———————————-
    Id say the person that makes most sense out of that group is Forte, followed by Martin, Morris, Hillman, then Ivory, Starks and Blount. Replacing Miller is going to be really tough to do.

    Vernon rated higher than Von M. and Aldon S.?
    Shelby the 5th ranked DE in FA?
    ———————————————
    I really dont think most here appreciate how good Vernon is. He might not rack up stats but he is pretty disruptive, tends to get a lot of chip assistance and he also is pretty balanced run/pass rush. I think he is deceptively good, and its why i am pretty sure we have almost no chance to re-sign him. Look at the other DE’s available. Von Miller is only ranked lower because he’s older, which they are factoring age into it, along with snap count, which Vernon was on the field majority of our snaps.

    Shelby is a starter on most teams. Look what he does with the limited snaps he gets. We could probably get by just re-signing Shelby and drafting one DE. Shelby is a very solid DE, and if his snap count was higher probably would be number 3 on that list.

    • D says:

      These are kinda moneyball metrics btw. Best bang for the buck analysis.

      • wyoming85 says:

        I really like Shelby and hope the sign him quick!

        Vernon just doesn’t set the edge well against the Run!
        If he catches the RB with his penetration he’s ok! But if he doesn’t he gives up the edge way to often.

        JMHO

  25. sb7mvp says:

    I really hope we don’t do much free agent spending unless it’s a bargain guy. Resign our own if possible and work through the draft. Of course, this is my every year mantra along with trading down in the first.

  26. New Age says:

    I really hope we resign Miller. Price matters, of course, but how many of these guys are going to consistently cost less and still be in the really usable age group? I don’t see anyone in the FA group that should cost significantly less without there being the age issue.

    Miller and Vernon will both be very hard to replace. Tired of replacing key cogs every year and wondering why the team stinks. This isn’t Boston.

  27. The Flying Pig says:

    D,
    I tend to think if Miller leaves Forte is our best get as well
    He is a good vet who knows the system
    Might be a steal

  28. Mike E. says:

    I like Forte a lot, but he’s a 2 YR guy at best. Miller would be more like a 5 YR guy.

  36. finfanrob says:

    meghan

    careful, you start responding to randy and next thing you know you will end up in a bucket

  37. Randy says:

    I’d let Vernon walk unless he’s willing to sign a somewhat team-friendly contract, which I doubt he would. I just don’t see where his production warrants a big contract. He isn’t even a double digit sack guy, and that hurts our defense. I think you can replace his production fairly easily in most drafts. He doesn’t force fumbles or defend passes or much of anything else. Couple that with being an 8 sack a year guy, and he just isn’t all that. Very, very average.

  38. Randy says:

    So, Gase says: There are a lot of good coaches on this team….and then he fires all but one of them? Lol

  39. Randy says:

    herd
    We can only hope!

  40. Al in MIA says:

    Randy,
    I’m not optimistic on the Gase hiring but time will tell.
    He didn’t prove anything as an OC IMO which is a key factor in evaluating a 1st time HC (their ability to excel as a signal caller either as OC or DC).

    • Al in MIA says:

      IMO he was a free rider on the Broncos staff with Manning at the helm at QB.
      The Bears didn’t improve on their yardage or points totals for the season under Gase (ranked 23rd in points; 21 in yardage both in 2014 & 2015). To put this into perspective, the Bears O has finished better than 23rd in points every year between their SB year (2006) and 2013 (last year before Gase came in as OC). In 2013, the Bears O finished 2nd in points scored, 8th in yardage produced.

    I like Forte a lot, but he’s a 2 YR guy at best. Miller would be more like a 5 YR guy.
    —————————————-
    Mike Forte wouldnt be my choice, i would prefer to sign Miller but if we cant, Forte on the cheap for a 2 year incentive laden contract while we get a better replacement, wouldnt be a bad fallback. Miller is someone i really want to keep, but things dont always work out, and from what i see right now, Miller is probably going to be the highest sought after FA RB this year.

  42. getterdone says:

    Millertime is a priority…IMO. He’s got chemistry with Tanny, has great vision now, balance, learned how to read the blocks, has a great 2nd gear, & can catch the ball well.

    We don’t know what we have in Ajayi as far as longevity of a full season. Remember the cartilage in his knee is ab out gone do to the degenerative condition in the joint.

    You need 2 GOOD complimentary RB’s in this modern league & we got that but really only will be paying for 1. (Ajayi is on his 5th rd rookie contract)

    • Al in MIA says:

      Forte might be cheaper than Miller and is a far better receiver at RB.

      • getterdone says:

        Don’t know about far better. Miller has really improved in that area & is still trending up there. Plus hard to ignore how young he still is with how fresh his legs are.
        Forte has been missing games the past 2 years with injuries.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      I think the FO wants him back but it depends on his price. And I agree. We can’t overpay for miller.

  43. getterdone says:

    Paying Miller would also show a commitment to the running game. Something we all want.

  44. sb7mvp says:

    Running back is so interchangeable these days. If we’re going to spend money on a position it needs to be an MLB. Just draft an RB or two for cheap.

    • getterdone says:

      That phrase gets thrown around a lot these days, but there is a cream of the crop of RB’s out there that can really make a difference for a team & is a true weapon.
      Miller is that & can be that guy with more carries…IMO.

  45. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I would rather spend money on guards, cbs, mlbs, pass rushers before I spend money on a RB.

    • getterdone says:

      Those positions except for OG’s will cost a lot. That’s where good drafting needs to pick up for the Phins.
      Miami has blown the OG’s they’ve drafted past few years. Maybe Douglass comes alive this year.
      Miami has also missed on CB’s, Taylor, DAvis, etc. Hope Bobby McCain & Lippett can emerge in 2nd year.
      Miami has also missed on LB’s in recent drafts, except for Jenkins. Tripp didn’t pan out, but maybe Vigil will at some point.

      • getterdone says:

        Miami has also blown it @ DE/pass rushers. Dion FF, ugh!
        Fede, we are still waiting on to develop more. OV was a nice draft pick, but he’s now looking for a sizeable payday coming off his rookie contract.
        He could be around $50M. That we can’t afford.

    Maybe wedge should have a special post for David Bowie

  49. BoulderPhinfan says:

    GDP,
    When Gaze was the OC in denver they didn’t spend a lot of money on RBs. CJ anderson was the one they used. He was cheap and do you remember how they gashed our defense with Anderson in 2014?

    You don’t need to spend a lot of money on a rb to be successful running team in the NFL. Oline and QB play is much more important IMO.

    We need to get our oline and defense fixed in FA.

  50. Tim Knight says:

    Very sad to hear of David Bowie’s passing. He was a unique artist and musician. RIP Starman

  51. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Isn’t beast mode a free agent as well? I’m sure we can get a decent veteran rb for not a lot of money to go with Ajaye next year.

    I was blown away to hear about Bowie. I didn’t even realize he was sick. RIP

    • getterdone says:

      He had some great material that nicely outdid his bad experimental weird phases…lol
      RIP Bowie

      • CavalierKong says:

        He definitely had some odd stuff.

        Space Oddity was my introduction to Bowie. It is still a song the evokes a wide range of emotion when I hear it.

  58. Tim Knight says:

    Kong, I don’t think very many people knew of Bowie’s illness.

  59. D says:

    Been running some numbers and i think we could have about 24-25mil in cap space this year. It would take us cutting ties with Grimes, Wake, Jennings, Jordan, and Br McCain, and at least getting Coples contract re-worked to get it down to a more reasonable 2mil per. If we cut him outright, we could keep Br McCain and still be around 24-25mil and thats including the 5mil we will need for the draft pick contracts.

    This opens up a bunch of strategies for us. We could additionally cut/Trade Albert, his 5 mil would bring us to about 30mil, then CB Janoris Jenkins, 8mil LT Glenn 12mil, OG Ronald Leary 3-4mil. and maybe even another OG, or an ILB using the rest of the 6mil, or use it to re-sign Miller. We could keep Albert, hoping that he survives a full year for once, keep the 12 mil for Glenn, use part of it to pick up one of the other two parts mentioned above. Really depends on if you think stability at the LT position is more important than Miller and an ILB for example.

    BTW, Most the top ILB’s this year are from 3-4 schemes, which could be an issue moving them to 4-3 MLB, or it could not. We had a bad experience with moving Ellerbe.

    If we go this route in FA we can really focus on improving our defense in the draft, focusing on CB, DE , LB and S.

    how much if they keep landry, parker and jones and cut the rest.

    • D says:

      Hmmm, well two of them, Suh and Tanny would immediately get the rest of their guaranteed money. They already are going to cost over 40mil towards cap, regardless of playing or not, on top of that they would cost an additional 32mil from their future guaranteed payouts, immediately, so we cant cut them unless we want to eat about 72mil in dead money. Same for James he costs us a lot more to cut.

      As for the rest, somewhere in the neighborhood of 60+

    I really like Kentrell Brothers Missou, and Kendell Beckwith LSU, but im seeing a lot of potential starters. Antonio Morrison UF, Deion Jones LSU, Cassanova McKinzy Auburn, Kris Frost, Dominique Alexander OU.

  63. D says:

    Im not a fan of trading picks, but i could see doing it this year to grab some talent, even at the expense of a first round next year. Its not likely given new coach, and potential of needing a top pick, if for some reason Gase does decide to go a different direction at QB, but id be tempted if to if we were able to secure extra top picks this year. This is a pretty good draft in several areas of need for us.

  64. The Flying Pig says:

    This is Tyler Matkevich from Temple

    Matkevich won the Bednarik award this year as colleges best LB

    he is a true MLB
    he had over 100 tackles in all 4 years of his college career

    he might be selected on day 2 of the draft
    he’s not exactly as secret after winning awards and playing a team that received more attention than usual this season

    He is undersized and slow
    and hails from a small school
    but If he lasts until the 4th round some one landed a LB that can start for them on day 3

    difference maker at MLB?
    I think of this guy as more like a great technician with great instincts
    and he has notable lateral speed

    He is a small school guy
    and I would prefer big school guys this year (in hopes of landing an immediate impact)

    but Matkovich in the 4th round would be nice and allow us to focus rounds 1-3 on other defensive players: S, DE, CB, OLB are all additional needs

    • D says:

      I have been mentioning him to you gus for a while. All research i have seen says he is a solid prospect, A littl on the small side for MLB, 6’1 232, but good instincts and solid tackler/coverage guy.

    I kinda liked the MLB prospects last season a little better
    No one can match Denzel Perryman ( a tear falls from Piggy’s eye)

  68. The Flying Pig says:

    This is a thing of beauty

    • D says:

      Check out Ragland, he’ probably close to the comparison to Perryman, slightly bigger, same kinda limitations in coverage, but HARD hitter, sure tackler.

    • D says:

      Here is one with the other ILB, Reuben Foster, he was previous a second round talk and then just fell off the face of the earth, not even sure why, but he’s a solid prospect too.

    —————————————–
    I think i like this years a little better, and if you like Perryman, you will really like Beckwith. He’s Perryman with better size and coverage ability, but when he attacks its on. Last years group wasnt bad, and most all of them have done well. I liked several of them, just not as 1st round picks. Benardrick McKInney was my top guy and he has really started coming on since he moved into the starting spot. Last years group all went around 2nd round, and i think its going to be about the same this year.

    Tanny might get a little nervous with another ginger on the team, although this guy is full blown and Tanny is only part ginger lol.

    Vontaze Burfict has been suspended for the first three games of the 2016 regular-season, per NFL.

  77. Randy says:

    Al,
    I know nothing about Gase. Hopefully, he’s the right guy for the job. Ultimately, that’s all we can do as fans. Hope.

  78. steveccnv says:

    When I said I didn’t want Campbell to be our coach it was, because I wanted someone that was smart and innovative, someone that could out coach/smart Belicheat. I think Gase can be that guy. He may not work out, but he’s the type of coach that can be the next Shula. I know we all said that about Philbin, but what else do we have to look forward to?

    My thought or opinion or whatever is that until he proves to be a bad choice, he is the MAN!!! I’m looking forward to OTA’s and camp….then we can start to get an idea. Right now, I’m easing into my post-football depression.

  83. getterdone says:

    Herd, in Gase you’re too depressed, there’s always rooting for Clemson in 15 min.

  84. Tim Knight says:

    The thing is about all these young coaches, we don’t really know enough about them to really make informed opinions. There is a reason they become hot commodities in NFL circles though.

    • getterdone says:

      Good thing Ross & Tbomb are will to be the guinea pig franchise. Maybe we should change the mascot. 😉

      • Tim Knight says:

        Lots of teams have success hiring first time HCs. The issue with our team is it seems no matter what we do with coaches or personnel nothing changes. That shit has to change.

      • getterdone says:

        Yeah it’s gotten old.
        The longterm problem was finding a franchise QB after Marino. Then when we finally find a guy that looks very capable of that, the franchise mucks it all up with many poor personnel & poor coaching choices.

        C’mon, odds got to be it changes….soon we hope!

  85. finfanrob says:

  96. finfanrob says:

  97. herdfan says:

    Those high school girls in the video are amateurs….I can do that all by myself AND with no basketball. 😉

  98. finfanrob says:

    lmfao. some one should tell kirk idoitstreit that if the ball lands on the defenders hand cause they are holding the wr’s hands before the ball gets there that is PI. not a great defensive play.

  99. finfanrob says:

    wow just wow, the bama d backs have no rules tonight
