Put Me in Coach . . .

Adam Gase

Miami Dolphins Head Coach Adam Gase

 

The Miami Dolphins have named their 12th Head Coach in the history of the franchise, Adam Gase.  The former Offensive Coordinator of the Chicago Bears and also the Denver Broncos, is now the youngest Head Coach in the NFL at 37 years old.   Adam Gase and the Miami Dolphins will not be hiring an Offensive Coordinator this season, as Gase will fill those duties himself.

Gase has already begun filling out his staff, beginning with the hiring of former Cincinnati Bengals Defensive backs and former NFL CB Vance Joseph.

Gase has also named Matt Burke, former Cincinnati Bengals Linebacker Coach to man that same post for the Miami Dolphins

Our new Tight Ends Coach is Shane Day, who was the TE Coach for the Chicago Bears

Replacing the vaunted John Benton is Chris Foerster.  Foerster spent the 2004 season as Offensive Coordinator for the Miami Dolphins, but joins the Dolphins after coaching last year as OL Coach for the SF 49ers.

The Dolphins have also named Shawn Jefferson as Wide Receivers Coach, former NFL WR, and former Wide Receivers Coach of the Tennessee Titans.

In addition to all the position coaches and assistants, the Dolphins have promoted Eric Stokes, formerly the Assistant General manager of the Dolphins to Senior Personnel Executive.

So, what does all this mean?  Will Adam Gase be able to transform our predictable, ineffective offense into a high scoring unit?  Will new DC Vance Joseph employ a 4-3, or a 3-4, or a hybrid of both?  Will former Dolphins OC and now OL Coach Chris Foerster be able to fix this much maligned unit?  There a lots of questions that beg to be answered, but patience will be necessary folks, because we have a long way until we play our 1st regular season game in 2016, and we probably won’t have all the answers until possibly the end of the 2016 season, or maybe even years later.

Yeah, I’ve already started feeling optimistic, they suckered me in again!  I like that Gase will be the OC, and will be calling the plays.  No excuses about chain of command or the OC being stubborn and not listening to the HC, because the HC is the OC.  Accountability my friends, and I like it!  Gase has a lot of work to do to catch up with our divisional foes.  Save for the victory against the Patriots in Week 17, the Dolphins were 1-5 in the AFC East, and if we want to contend for a playoff spot, we must do better against our divisional foes.

Here’s to hoping Gase is the magic man, and Bill Belichick, Todd Bowles and Rex Ryan are all screaming at the end of next year for Adam Gase to get off their case!

GO DOLPHINS !!

    son,
    Tannehill needs to make big time throws against the blitz like Wilson just did.

    that would be nice. would be nice if the blitz got picked up too, would be nice if they had a defense that could stop 3rd and long, would be nice if they new how to run the ball in the second half.

  2. Randy says:

    Tim,
    And how many of those throws came in junk time and never resulted in TDs? Most of them.

    Tim,
    And how many of those throws came in junk time and never resulted in TDs? Most of them.

    lol, and how do you know ‘most of them’ what did you go back and re-watch every game to track it? or let me guess ‘most of them’ just makes you feel better saying it

  4. finfanrob says:

    seattle scores here and son’s favorite team is in trouble

  5. Randy says:

    ffr,
    All that stuff still doesn’t stop Tannehill from making a great read and a great thow….just like Wilson just did. Seattle’s defense had absolutely nothing to do with the play we just saw Wilson make.

  6. finfanrob says:

    randy

    i think i said it would be nice. not sure how that didnt register. i was just saying other things that would be nice if they did as a team. sorry if for me it gets boring just dumping on one aspect of the shit team they are

    oh yeah, and picking up the blitz did help it happen

    2nd fave

    fooled me then.

  8. Randy says:

    Tim,
    24 TDs. That’s all that needs to be said. Shake your head all you want. It doesn’t make you right. Lol

  9. Randy says:

    ffr
    I’m sure Wilson thinks it would be nice if his OL blocked too, seeing as how they gave up about as many sacks(45) as we did, and he still threw 34 TDs and 8 INTs. Wilson still got it done even with shoddy protection.

  10. Tim Knight says:

    Okay I see some of you here want to keep ragging on Tannehill. I think we’ve been there done that. I’m moving forward focusing on our new coaches and potential prospects to make the team better. I’m in wait and see mode too but I’m not going to harp on negativity either. That’s just me. Carry on. 🙂

  11. son of a son of a shula says:

    Scheme scheme scheme the new buzz word it’s what you say when you’re afraid to call the baby ugly

  12. getterdone says:

    Tannehill does need to make more plays, but he can’t throw it to himself, run without the ball, or most importantly, he can’t block for himself.
    Nor can he force the other team’s offense to 3 & out.

    Well, actually he can do all those things in junk time after they’re getting blown out and the other team goes to a soft prevent….smh!

  13. getterdone says:

    Randy, you talk about great reads & throws by Wilson. Didn’t he have a pick 6 from his own 7 yard line instead of throwing it away. Then another Int later?
    What’s he reading? Your posts? LOL 😀

  14. finfanrob says:

    getterdone says:
    January 17, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    Great defense helps that along, that & commitment to the run, regardless of your RB.

    nope. that has no aspect on the game. it is only a qb game.

    Son, you need some of this. 🙂

  17. Randy says:

    Again, look at the whole year, Wilson far exceeded Tannehill. It’s not even close, and the Seattle defense didn’t throw 34 TDs. Do you credit our defense for all of Tannehill’s pathetic 24 tds? I doubt it. Wilson has comparable or worse players around him on offense, and he still outperformed Tannehill. It’s that simple.

  18. New Age says:

    Wilson was a hell of a QB in college. He played a lot more than Tannehill. He is a very good QB. At the same time, he tried his best to lose the game against GB last year, his mistakes are why Carolina is in the lead, and he really didn’t do anything last week either. Oh, and that pass was the reason the pats have another ring.

  19. finfanrob says:

    Randy, you talk about great reads & throws by Wilson. Didn’t he have a pick 6 from his own 7 yard line instead of throwing it away.

    or miss a wide open wr for a long td.

    done you know the rules of comparing the qb on your team to other qb’s

    rule 1: when comparing your teams qb to other qb’s only compare him to the positive plays the other qb makes

    rule 2: see rule number 1

    lmao. but you called him a very good qb.

  21. Randy says:

    Again, look at the whole year. Wilson outperformed Tannehill. Are you all trying to tell me you’d rather have Tannehill’s 24 TDs instead of wilson’s 34? And, Wilson was sacked 45 times. He did not have good protection by any means.

    • getterdone says:

      He did outperform Tanny. But many factors go into that. Two different teams.
      I’m not knocking Wilson either. He’s a damn good QB. For all his bad & WTF plays, he can scramble around and pull off miracle WTF how did he do that plays also. 🙂

  22. Randy says:

    Sorry, I might be grumpy because my heat went out last night, and it’s -8 degrees! Lol

  23. Randy says:

    gdp
    It’s all about making plays. We need to start making a lot more as a team.

  24. finfanrob says:

    randy

    well if that was all you meant. then i would pick brady’s 36 tds and 7 ints. i didnt know we had the magic option of just picking qb stats

  25. son of a son of a shula says:

    Thanks Tim that was really good. I connected my Dolphins Bluetooth speaker to listen to it.

  26. finfanrob says:

    wilson is not a good qb. he is a very average qb with a very good ability to scramble. it is the only thing he does very good. every other aspect of his game is average

  27. son of a son of a shula says:

    Come on Camolina D

  28. son of a son of a shula says:

  29. Tim Knight says:

    First real snow of the year. It’s like a heavy confection sugar coating at the moment. LOL

  30. finfanrob says:

    to bad wilson’s stats in the second half dont count. it was all during garbage time.

  31. Tim Knight says:

    Son, check out more of Damian Salazar on the streets of Buenos Aires. Great young talent.

  32. finfanrob says:

    just so i have this right. several states have made it illegal to text and drive. and there are all sorts of commercials about the dangers of texting and driving. basically showing the dangers of it.

    and just to show how conscious the auto makers are about it they decided to start adding wifi to their cars…….brilliant

    • Tim Knight says:

      That should be a fed law. Sometimes things just make sense. Just like driving around in a pickup with 8 people firing off guns and drinking beer wasn’t a good idea. LOL

    • getterdone says:

      LOL, I know, I said that to a friend the other night watching the commercials.
      But hey, not to worry. Obama’s admin is pushing for the emerging technology of driverless cars so we can all be tracked, maneuvered, & controlled.

      Bog Brother will take care of your every need….Weee. Happy Serfs.

  33. bookman11 says:

    So Tim posts some interesting stats on our receivers and it devolves into a Tannehill conversation..LOL

    come on now. down south guns and alcohol are a staple of life.

    That’s what I can’t understand!
    How in the hell am I supposed to text with a Cig in one hand and a beer in the other?

    Who wants a carrot

    • getterdone says:

      Sean Penn’s idea that he recently gave El Chapo….lol

    • BUMMMERRR !!!

      Invasion of the Bunny Snatchers (1992)
      Bugs Bunny: It all began in a vast uncharted region of outer space. A whole flock of strange looking carrots drifting in space for billions of years, were floating down toward the Earth. But I didn’t know it at the time. As far as I was concerned it was just another typical day, except that I was late to work.
      [Very first line and quote, as Opening Credits near its completion]

      Bugs Bunny: Hey taxi!
      [gets in the cab]
      Bugs Bunny: To the middle of nowhere, quick!

      Bugs Bunny: [Bugs sees first bunch of weird alien carrots] Gee, what strange looking carrots. Oh well.
      [voiceover]
      Bugs Bunny: I should’ve known right then that there was something screwy about those carrots. But gosh, I didn’t have time to think. I had a date out west with a fiery redhead!

      Bugs Bunny: [Bugs sees second bunch of weird alien carrots] Gee, what strange looking wild cactus carrots. Oh well.

  38. Tim Knight says:

    Bookman, what this?

    Ya know it’s funny, no matter how you break it down, RT did a much better job getting the ball in his receivers hands for chunk yards. Parker 19.0 YPCA, Stills 16.3 and Matthews 15.4. Those are good numbers. Landry only 10.5 but he catches a lot of short stuff.

    20+ yard catches – Landry 10 on 110 receps, Matthews 10 on 43, Stills 10 on 27 and Parker 9 on 26.

    I think we’ll see that continue under Gase.

  39. getterdone says:

    Omaha Omaha for the next 3 hrs….what a joy. 🙄

  40. finfanrob says:

    tim

    can you give us those stats but take out the garbage time stats

  41. Mike E. says:

    I thought our whole season was garbage time, ho w can you separate it?

  42. finfanrob says:

    mike

    dont say that. even though you are right the whole season was. but if you say that then some will just say tanny had no stats for the year

  43. finfanrob says:

    cant believe how much manning is struggling with his wr’s dropping to many passes. guess manning sucks

  44. getterdone says:

    At this point I’m beginning to think Steelers have a better chance on the road to beat the Pats than Denver @ home with wounded duck Manning.

  45. finfanrob says:

    getter

    it doesnt matter who the cheats play. they are winning the game.

    • getterdone says:

      Yep, there’s a Goodell chance that they most certainly will. 😉

      But I think Carolina matches up well against NE….sooo

  46. finfanrob says:

    ‘But I think Carolina matches up well against NE….sooo’

    again it doesnt matter. cheady will get his ring. have more then any other qb and then retire. then the nfl will finally suspend him for cheating

  47. herdfan says:

    Wow….went for a quick trip to the grocery store…10-15 minutes and I walk back outside and the snow is really coming down, roads covered already. Glad I finally got new tires last week!

  48. herdfan says:

    So after the year he’s had, if the Broncos do manage to get to the SB and win, does anyone think Manning retires?

  49. finfanrob says:

    herd

    first, i dont think anybody but the cheats are winning the sb. second i would think no matter what happens to denver this is mannings last year

  50. herdfan says:

    I agree he should, just wondering if he will.

  51. getterdone says:

    Kubiack is stupid for not putting Osweiler in.
    Broncos 22 possessions w/o a TD.

  52. D says:

    That last play was a bunch of bullcrap

  53. finfanrob says:

    getter

    it isnt like Osweiler was putting up td’s when he was in

  54. finfanrob says:

    hmmmmm that magical holding call to help out the steelers. who ever would have called that

  55. herdfan says:

    My reason for asking, you know it has to irk Peyton that Eli has 2 SB wins to his 1. I think it’s probably why he played this year. So my thought is, if they win, he retires because he at least ties Eli. And fwiw, I think he is better than Eli. Just shows it’s the team that wins.

    Refs may screw him though cause the NFL wants a Manning / Brady rematch.

    yeah, but they want the cheats to have the championship game at home too

  58. getterdone says:

    Omar Kelly ✔ @OmarKelly
    Watching Peyton Manning’s ball wobble on outside throws. Doesn’t look good!

    Omar Kelly ✔ @OmarKelly
    Peyton Manning’s arm looks just fine. He can run his tailor made offense.

    I fucning hate Brady vs Manning

    Expect to hear it for a week

    Worst of all
    There is no winner here
    One will win
    And we get to hear about them nonstop instead of great story of cam newton or Carson Palmer
    I love Carson Palmers story
    Cam newton is amazing

    But Brady or Manning trump them in the media eyes

    Fuck you earth

  63. finfanrob says:

    ya’ll think that is boring. just imagine the fun of watching the cheats in another sb

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Burn it all

      Burn it all down

      Please let the Broncos beat th patriots
      I can’t
      I have to give up the NFL if the cheaters are in the super bowl
      The Chiefs are reporting problems with there radios
      Fucking cheaters

  64. The Flying Pig says:

    That cheating franchise has laid coming there way
    Can we please get the pain started already

    Fuck those fucks

  65. finfanrob says:

    piggy

    i have seen this movie lots of times. it never has a different ending. i am pretty fucking sure i said this around 10 months ago or so when all that joke of brady being suspended started. i said it wouldnt happen and he would end up in another sb. and well lookie lookie where he is at now.

    i think watching the wwf if more suspense then the nfl.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Okay

      Maybe you are right you cynical fuck

      I praying for a meteor form the sky to drop and hit Ton Brady right in the knees

      If you cut the cheats out of the NFL – it’s. Great league

      The time had come
      Much these assholes..:I hope

  66. finfanrob says:

    the only way the cheats dont win if is their plane crashes into the Rockies before the game. come on plane crash.

  67. getterdone says:

    You guys take cynicism to a whole new level….lol

  68. finfanrob says:

    lmfao off at piggy calling me a cynical fuck. and piggy i am and really am laughing.

    the only thing better then being called a cynical fuck by a pig is know you enjoyed you morning feasting on bacon.

  69. finfanrob says:

    piggy

    i am way more hateful then that. fuck the meteor hitting him in his knees. let it hit the fucking plane he is on and kill the whole fucking team. hopefully with bilicheat with the slowest and worst death of them all. i hate that team and everything there is boston. hell maybe the meteor is big enough and hits the plane on take off and wipes out the whole fucking city

    son,
    Tannehill needs to make big time throws against the blitz like Wilson just did.
    —————————————————————-
    I don’t get the Tannehill defensive talk when someone makes a post like this. We all know he needs to play better, most of us believe he can in the right environment.
