Happy New Year 2019 with colorful fireworks

Well, 2018 wasn’t a great season for the Miami Dolphins. I believe to most of us, a change was more than welcome, and the Miami Dolphins owner Steve Ross did not disappoint. Apparently, he’s as displeased with the teams performance as we are, and change was a necessity. The Adam Gase era is now over, lasting only 3 seasons in Miami. The offensive minded coach was expected to bring the Dolphins to new heights, but instead it was new lows. The Dolphins offense finished the season ranked #31 of 32 teams in total yards per game at just under 299 yards per game. #26 in scoring at 19.9 PPG. At 7-9, the Dolphins ended up with a -114 point differential. It’s kind of amazing that we were 7-9 considering how awful and inept we were on both sides of the ball.

The good news – Not only is Adam Gase removed as HC, Dowell Loggains is gone as OC, and Matt Burke also gone as DC.

More good news – Mike Tannenbaum is demoted from VP of Football Operations, and GM Chris Grier now absorbs that title.

GM Chris Grier has already begun the search for a new Head Coach. Rumors are flying around, and it’s difficult to really believe a lot of what is said, so take caution in what you start to fall for. Is John Harbaugh really going to leave the Baltimore Ravens? Is Jim Harbaugh going to leave the college ranks and leave Michigan to break his back again working 20 hour days during the NFL season? Is foot-loving Rex Ryan going to land feet first in Miami? We don’t really know, but it sure is fun to speculate.

The thing that makes me most happy about this transition is Chris Grier is speaking music to my ears. He says he wants to build a team, not try for the quick fix. (Check!)

Grier says we will not be big spenders in Free Agency, especially on veteran players, it would only be on young players, and no overspending. (Check!)

Really, that’s all I can ask for. A plan that can bring the Miami Dolphins to a point where winning is sustainable and consistent. Of course, it’s just a plan, and as we know the plan still has to be executed, and executed well. Regardless, I’m happy, very happy with the entire philosophy. It’s precisely where I think this team should be heading.

As of the moment, we do know the Miami Dolphins have asked the Bears permission to interview their DC Vic Fangio. Fangio is a long time NFL defensive coach, since 1995, first with the Carolina Panthers, the Indianapolis Colts, The Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers and then of course the Chicago Bears. The Bears lead the NFL allowing only 17.7 PPG, astounding in this new era of high scoring affairs. Personnel always has something to do with it, and the Bears trading for Khalil Mack had a huge impact on the defense.

Other names that will be bandied about are Mike McCarthy, Bruce Arians, Urban Meyer, Eric Bieniemy, Mike Munchak, Rex Ryan and more . . .

When Chris Grier makes his decision, I hope that the Head Coach chosen share many of the same philosophies and visions for the team, and then are able to fill out their staff with qualified coordinators. I truly hope that ST’s coordinator Darren Rizzi is still part of our team. Special teams has been an excellent unit here, and that’s all due to Rizzi, so I hope he’s being considered.

Here’s to hoping that we finally got this right, and Dolphins fans everywhere can enjoy competitive football for many years to come. As I’ve said in other articles, taking a step or two backwards is a necessary part of rebuilding, and I’m willing to take those lumps. A 3-13 or 4-12 season will bring better things for 2020, when some serious QB talent is expected to be available. That doesn’t mean I think we shouldn’t take one this season, I definitely hope we do. Doesn’t have to be early, but we need competition at the QB position, so somewhere in this draft I hope we find it.

Happy New Year!

    Anyone know how many HC’s were in the league this past year who have been HC’s for two different teams in the NFL? The answer my friend is you can’t count them on one hand, so you need your other hand. 😉

    Crickets?

    They changed the Parkey kick to a blocked kick instead of a missed FG.

    Piggy i heard a rumor that the frontrunner for HC at Miami is Richard with Rizzi the dark horse.

  9. Rockphin says:

    6 out of 7 first time head coaches hired in 2016 are no longer at their jobs. The other? one the superbowl last year.

    I’m glad to not get Munchak. He’s done.

  12. naplesfan2010 says:

    My wife just watched the Saban halftime interview. Her comment.
    “Is that guy gay?” … “He sounds so effeminate.”
    Mind you, she’s not against ppl being gay;
    she said, “I didn’t think a gay guy could be a football coach.”

  13. Rockphin says:

    I am so tired of waiting to find out who our head coach is going to be. It seems like every 2-3 years we have to hire a new one……

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Gase let me down big time.
      I really thought he was the guy to be coach 10-15 yrs at a high level of team success.
      I am still really disappointed in the way it went.

    • wyoming85 says:

      Wonder why????
      Mr blow it the fuck up!

      • Rockphin says:

        Wyoming, don’t put that on me. It had to happen. Gase is gone. Tannenbaum is gone. There is a chance Grier might succeed.

  14. The Flying Pig says:

    Is this standard procedure when removing some one

  15. son of a son of a shula says:

    WTF is this halftime?

  16. naplesfan2010 says:

    Clemson can’t feel safe with the RBs bama has.
    Plus that guy Jeudy is dangerous.
    And one year their TE beat us.
    15 points is not enough lead to relax.
    We miss our big guy on the DL.

    Wow!!!

  23. The Flying Pig says:

    No Senor!

  24. Tim Knight says:

    We discuss 4-3 vs. 3-4 DEF and then we see that the LAC DEF played 7 DBs against Jackson and the Ravens 58 out of 59 snaps.

    It’s a nickel and dime game. Just be stout up front and you’re okay. Secondary is huge and we have that.

    Build on it!

    Go Dolphins.

  31. Tim Knight says:

    Tank for skank. Never do it! It’s a fallacy. Playing good ball is as good as adding talent and there is always plenty available.

  32. naplesfan2010 says:

    Trypod.
    Sir.
    Is it Swinney’s calling on the Lord that bothers you? I understand what you mean. I do not agree with that. I wish he would not invoke Jesus as he does. Even though I do love Jesus.

    I do not think that Clemson won because God favored them or blessed them in some supernatural way.

    I think we just beat the shit out of Alabama.

  33. ElephantRider says:

    LaFleur GB’s new HC?? I guess I missed something on TN’s offense……he must be friends with Rodgers.

  34. The Flying Pig says:

    Last night the conversation on twitter changed from tank for Tua to Tank for Trevor
    Bc Twitter is the knee jerk capital of the internet

  35. olddolphan says:

    WELL THAT WAS A MAJOR LEAGUE ASS-KICKING CLEMSON PUT ON ALABAMA!!! – – AND the biggest reason why it happened was CLEMSON’s DEFENSE!! – – I’m starting to come around to the idea that the Fins should go O-Line and D-Line in rounds 1 and 2, given the unlikely scenario of getting a stud QB in round 1. STILL, if our future starting QB can be had, we’ve GOT to get him!!
    ———————-
    SOME HC candidates will become head coaches within the next 3-5 days. ARIANS definitely seems headed to the Bucs. Meanwhile, look for ROSS to, once again, pick THE WRONG GUY!!
    no chance THAT THIS FOOTBALL CLUELESS OWNER will pick the best man for the job. Instead of wondering who our next HC will be, I’ll be focussing on WHO WILL BE OUR NEXT OWNER.

    Gase we can’t have you come in here and start getting rid of our best players, as I’m sure Gase had a difficult time explaining this in his interviews.

    CBS Sports has us taking QB Daniel Jones in their latest mock @13

    • The Flying Pig says:

      You can see a player like Jones being hyped up and turning into a 1st rounder easily

      It’s similar to what happened to Patrick Mahomes or EJ Manuel before th draft obviously with much different results

      Teams don’t just reach for QBs
      But usually every year, some one gets a little more attention in the weeks before a draft and all of the sudden – he’s a high pick

    This was a cute tweet that should be taken with a grain of salt. Even Gil knew as much went he hit the post button.

    • stangerx says:

      Would GM GIl Brandt really be planing his team’s future around taking a QB in the 2021 draft? And unless he would be sucking for Luck….. whoever got the top pick might feel the exact same way and just say no. But guess just put out the grain of salt you talked about. 🙂

      • mf13ss says:

        Gil (WAY more so than me!!!) and I have both seen freshmen QBs tear up the NCAA. And we both know that so much can happen between now and draft eligibility. Least of which is GAME TAPE. The secret is now out.

        Yes… AMERICA now has their eyes on one Trevor Lawrence, and I think we all hope the very best for him! I hope young Trevor can handle his newfound celebrity in the most responsible of ways, for there are too many tales of those who could not…

  43. Rockphin says:

    Brian Flores emerging as top candidate for Dolphins head coach position

    This one get’s me upset. WHY!? What has he done? The only fruit from that coaching tree has been rotten. Not ONE of belicheat’s assistants has been a successful head coach. Bat has confirmed that the assistant coaches were not part the the deal made between NE and hell.

    • Rockphin says:

      “what has he done” – I.e. he doesn’t design plays, he doesn’t call plays, he is not even a coordinator. Piss on him!

  44. mf13ss says:

  45. Rockphin says:

    From the Phinsider poll:

    Who do you want to be the next head coach of the Miami Dolphins?
    23% Patriots LB coach Brian Flores

    26% Cowboys DB coach Kris Richard

    3% Saints DC Dennis Allen

    12% Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy

    36% Dolphins STC Darren Rizzi

    Obviously (to me at least) a bunch of morons read the phinsider….

    • stangerx says:

      They are just fans like us. And this one knows little about any of them except for Rizzi, who I do like but wouldn’t be crushed if does not get the job

      • Rockphin says:

        I was just throwing that out there as an opinionated dickhead. Like I know any better than they do! LOL I just don’t want Flores of all the choices he is the lowest on my list.

  46. stangerx says:

    M13 — I can’t remember which movie, but Trevor Lawrence with the long blond hair reminds me of the QB who came in a threw like anything in a football movie. Think he was from Cali and it was a high school team. Was it Remember the Titans?

    • mf13ss says:

      Honest to God, my good Brother Stanger, I’m not the guy to ask about movies. Many of my friends bust on me for not knowing or seeing many movies, but it’s true… I’m really not a movie buff, bud.

      • mf13ss says:

        That said, I could talk to you to ETERNITY about Star Wars, Indiana Jones, horror flicks, and certain movies that I will go out of my way to see! 🙂

    A fresh complication for Xavien Howard in his quest to be league’s richest cornerback:

    Damarius Bilbo, the Atlanta-based sports agent who helped Jarvis Landry land a lucrative long-term contract with the Browns and had hoped to do the same with Xavien Howard this spring, has been suspended for three months by his industry’s governing body.

    • CavalierKong says:

      His 1st point is the only one with validity. We may not land a top coach prospect because they don’t want to lose the 1st year or 2.

      His 2nd point about FAs not wanting to come here is stupid, because the point is to get away from high priced FAs.

      His 3rd point about fans calling it quits is stupid, because if the plan works and we actually become a good team, they will return. If you build it, they will come.

      And this article is such a load of douchebaggery. What was this article meant to accomplish other than sow seeds of discord?

      • Tim Knight says:

        Mando gets off on the negative sometimes. Nobody knows how any of this is going to go down.

    Terrell Buckley Inducted Into College Football Hall Of Fame

    Good for him. Toast will never see the ballot for NFL hall of fame. TOAST Buckley. He was Chris Chambers on Defense.

    Chambers would make an incredible circus catch on one play and then drop the easy pass right in his numbers on the next play.

    Toast would make an Int on one drive and then try and miss on the next to give up the TD. He was so frustrating I wound up hating the player and wishing him gone.

    —————————
    Mr Naples- no need to be formal. I’m fairly non-confrontational.
    You asked me about Swinney. Yes, he has said some fairly stupid things. I cannot keep track of everything that has come out of his mouth that I find stupefying. I Googled “Stupid things Swinney said” and was greeted with several links to stories on the subject. Some I knew about, others I learned about for the first time.
    You know how butt-hurt some people get when an athlete or an entertainer makes some political or social statement? I think coaches should be held to the same standard.
    I’m glad Clemson best Alabama. Enjoy your “We” moment.

  60. son of a son of a shula says:

    “That boy” had his boys playing at a high level last night

  61. New Age says:

    I like Swinney a lot. He says what he thinks and doesn’t back down to people who expect him to toe the line. Hell of a coach too considering he completely out-coached the best in the business. His recruiting is amazing too.

  62. TryPod says:

    I was just responding to Naples direct question. I don’t expect many or any to she with me, not to say if they like him or not. “I don’t like him” doesn’t mean “I hate him” or that he can’t coach. I don’t like hypocrisy as rule.

    • TryPod says:

      *agree with me, nor to say if they

      • New Age says:

        I don’t know his hypocrisy too much so maybe that’s why. I’m also tired of the Saban dynasty so that could be part of my thoughts as well. I liked Richt a lot and he wasn’t really a great coach so no biggie. We all have our guys we like and dislike in all phases of sports.

    Man people on Omar and Mando’s twitter etc. are real worry warts. If we wait too long to hire our HC we might not get good assistants for the staff. As if they know WTF they’re talking about. LOL

  66. Mike E. says:

    I’m not really a fan of the article Mando wrote about us tanking. First off, tanking is not entirley accurate. We’re going to try to get younger, and while doing that, shed some of the higher contracts. That doesn’t guarantee we’re going to be terrible, and it definitely doesn’t mean we’re not going to try to win games.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Agreed. I also have no real horse in the HC race and coaches usually hire people they know or are currently available looking for a job but have good reputations. Whoever the HC and staff are I’m just going with the flow. What we do personnel wise is what I’m really interested in. That and what type of team they want to be. Besides winning, wise guys. LOL

    Adam Gase, you’re FI—-… oh yeah, you’ve already been fired. Just another example as to why he was fired.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I didn’t understand why he didn’t use Drake more. I know he had a shoulder injury late in the season but even before that he was used sparingly. I thought he was going to be a focus of the offense and that’s why I protected him in FF. We’ll see what the new HC thinks about him along with the OC.

  73. mf13ss says:

  74. The Flying Pig says:

    Right now the rumor is Richard is the favorite
    But I’m wondering if a Harbaugh brother is a possibility

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      The four guys interviewed are still in the playoffs and Harbaugh is negotiating with Baltimore. I haven’t heard even a peep about Jim, I seriously doubt he’s in play. And then there’s Rizzi, who knows where he truly stands in this.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I’m thinking Grier may go with a defensive HC. Our last 4 have been offensive coaches. Get a defensive minded coach and find a OC that fits with his philosophy and let him run it. You can always be in games with good defense. Offense takes you over the top and that will come with some work on the OL and a QB.

  75. naplesfan2010 says:

    I think (among a lot of other things) Gase was overwhelmed by the choices on offense, especially before all the injuries.

    Several commentators laughed about “not having enough footballs to go around,” which is a common joke when an offense has multiple lesser stars (and thus does not have one mega star).

    Gase failed to find the right mix of throwing to the smurfs, developing the 3 young TEs, and proportionally splitting carries between Gore and Drake (and ignoring Ballage way too much).

    Of course in Gase’s defense, Tannehill has never been real good at spreading the ball around, we have not had a true WR1 in a long time, Gore is 52 yrs old, and 7 of the 11 playmakers were on a different team the previous yr. Throw in the Osweiler games and it’s a hot mess for a play-caller, especially one who must also manage the game cuz he was too stubborn to use a real OC.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Glad you mentioned Tannehill because he had a big hand in our ineptness.
      Turrible

      • Tim Knight says:

        He didn’t do himself any favors down the stretch and once Gase was fired and we went in the new direction I think it became clear he’s not part of the vision moving forward.

        Now is the time to let Grier build it the way he envisions it – build on the good young players we do have and keep adding more good young players. With win now out of the mix there can’t be a better time to do it this way.

    SPEAKING OF OSWEILER, the Fins defeated the mighty Bears with Brock the Inept at quarterback!! I REALLY BELIEVED, going into the playofffs, the Bears were over rated.

    ——————
    NOT concerned that Fins haven’t zeroed in on a coaching candidate. There will STILL be plenty of bad choices available a week from now. A local Bucs’ fan, noting Munchak’s statement that he has no interest in working for Ross, said to me “Well, Ross could always offer Gase his old job back!?!?”
    These Buccaneer fans think they are accomplished comedians.

  77. The Flying Pig says:

    This is all over twitter

  78. son of a son of a shula says:

    Bieniemy is the only offensive coach who’s been interviewed. Even Rizzi and Harbaugh as we know are ST guys.
    I like a Defensive coach for us even if he brings a 3-4. The only problem with that is Gase gave our NT to Buffalo.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I don’t think Phillips would be a good NT. Not consistent enough and lacks the motor to play a really tough position.

  79. naplesfan2010 says:

    Trypod
    well I typed in “stupid things swinney said” and was met with an article on VS.

    The writer ‘s first point was to defend Kaepernick, so he lost me right there.

    I am also against college player unions, so I agreed with Dabo on that one also.

    The writer said the game is less safe now than it used to be, disagreeing with Dabo, but I played the game back in the day, and the only was it is more dangerous today is the pure size of players and thus over-stress on body parts which can’t be made stronger through weight training. The rules protecting players nowadays are much stricter and violent collisions are much less frequent.

    Anyway, I don’t need to defend Swinney. So I will stop.

    I am a strong supporter of separating church and state, so if Dabo wants to make a rule that players must attend church, that is wrong, but I do not find any evidence of coercion.

    However, invoking high moral standards while teaching teenagers how to become good men is not mixing church and state, it is what every parent, coach, teacher, and rock star ought to be doing 24/7.

    • TryPod says:

      I don’t think any of this makes him a horrible human being. I just said I didn’t like him. I certainly was not trying to affect yours or anyone else’s opinion of him. To each his own.

  80. naplesfan2010 says:

    I don’t get Mando’s lamenting “how long” the coach search is taking.
    We need to get this right, not fast.
    I get not wanting to lose a good hire to another team, but I do not think Arians is a good fit for us at all, LaFleur is less than a 50/50 to succeed, and Kingsbury is a prayer in the desert.

    Munchak and Fangio are stodgy frumps, relics who have not kept up with the times, although they are good football men who have coached well in the past. I don’t want them here, either.

    I think we need an uptempo guy, but not a chaotic guy like Gase. We need toughness, but not stubbornness like Gase displayed. We need someone to keep the players loose, but not get into peer level hissy fit power struggles that make over-achievers into divas like what happened with Landry and Phillips and Ajayi.

  81. Tim Knight says:

    Rizzi has to blow them away with his plan on how to turn the team around. Everyone in the building already knows him and loves him. The other guys had to meet and greet and put their plan together. I’d have no problem with Rizzi but my gut says Flores or Richard – defensive coach.

    We may have to bring in a fa qb to help transition

    But doesn’t the current bargaining agreement state we have to spend X percent (huge) of the cap to player contract ie: can’t keep it ?

    • Tim Knight says:

      You can rollover a % but you also don’t have to lock up any high priced UFAs long-term. Sign more 2nd tier guys than the big fish. If you spread your FA out at multiple positions with young talent now you have more competition throughout the team and the chance to build chemistry moving forward with the best of the lot. In a few years when you think your close maybe then you target a big time FA or make a trade to help put you over the top.

    Rock

    My comment was directed at Mando and his article….not you. 🙂

    Rizzi can explain how he gets the most out of each player. If anybody comes in and says I will adapt to each players strengths, hire that guy!

    Gase always said he would gameplan and each week would be different depending on the matchups. Never saw it….ever .

    • Tim Knight says:

      It did happen but each week we lost another player. The team was playing backups to backups and guys off the street at the end. It doesn’t matter now. Let’s hope the new regime has more good fortune. 🙂

      The Gase project didn’t work.

      • ElephantRider says:

        I never saw it. No Stills, no TEs, only the same WR screens and abandoned run game. If he was limited by QB that’s on him too.
        I pulled for him and he never changed anything.
        Injuries happened and what changed?

  85. CavalierKong says:

    So now Gase’s only shot pretty much has to be with the Jest, right? I haven’t seen anything saying the Bengals are interviewing him.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah he only interviewed with ARZ, GB and NYJ, all teams with QBs – Rodgers and the youngins Rosen and Darnold. I did see a tweet on the SS as a possible OC at Alabama due to his ties with Saban.

  86. Tim Knight says:

    ER, not saying nothing wasn’t on Gase, just that it wasn’t ideal. The team fell apart which is also a problem. Even one of our best players in Howard missed the last 3 games. I mean come on! WTF with so many guys going down?!!!

    • ElephantRider says:

      It’s an annual event down there. I dont know. At least M is working on solving the mystery. 😉

      Gase definitely was losing the team towards the end. Oh well….on to the next one! Its gotta end one day right?

      GO Fins

    Morning mob and Happy New Year to everyone. Quick fly by – saw some posts about TL. I know Simon Clancy isn’t liked by some of y’all, but this is a good read if you have nothing better to do in between play-off weekends in which the Dolphins fail to appear yet again.

    Here’s hoping the next reset reaps more results than the last eleventeen (sic)

    • stangerx says:

      Good to see you OK — and great article. I’ve always like Simon’s stuff…. and seemed he’s moved up i the world to the point where he gets to visit high school prospects.

      • ukfinfan says:

        Thanks Stanger – you too and glad you enjoyed your vacay. Sounds very cool.

        Simon is doing well for himself. He was a producer for the BBC sports prog but also writes for Gridiron UK, a nationwide magazine and is a journalist with Joe.UK now. Top chap …… except he supports Liverpool – my soccer team’s hated enemy. He has a MILLION connections with American Footy at all levels including inside the Fins. He doesn’t always get it right – he loved Gase. He’s bigging up Richards at the mo. He created he Legion of Boom and turned Da Bears into a top D (Khalil Mack didn’t do them any harm either!) A good follow on Twitter, if you happen to Tweet.

      • stangerx says:

        Well if Simon supports Liverpool he is right happy now (yeah watched a lot of BBC over the holidays). And glad he has turned his passion into his profession, very few get to do that. But he used to blow me away with how much he knew about college football prospects that one year at the SS. Would be like me breaking down cricket test match rosters better than any Brit could do.
