Mike Nolan taking the Atlanta DC job

This was something that came as a bit of a surprise to me and I am sure to some of you too. The Dolphins defense was clearly their strength and now to see the play caller gone kind of hurts a little. Although who knows, maybe we would have gotten someone who runs a 4-3 or a head coach that calls his own defensive plays causing us to not resign Nolan. I think that if the reports a couple of days ago that Mike Zimmer was on the top of the Dolphins list, he certainly is now if not in the top 2 or 3 now. Also remember he has a ties with Ireland from the days with the Cowboys.

Also the colts HC job just opened up, which could affect us. The opportunity to get a once in every decade player as Luck would certainly entice candidates to take that job. Also Dave Toub just signed a 2 year extension which rules him out of the equation, which is a relief to many Dolphin fans. I would still like to see Philbin or Zimmer as our coach, maybe more Zimmer now that Nolan is gone, so that Zimmer calls the plays and possibly Daboll (unless Zimmer brings in his own guy) calling the offense.

Update: According to Armando Zimmer is off the Dolphins list, the Dolphins are looking for an offensive coach

  1. Stop crying, so he's gone. If he would have had his defense ready to go at the beginning of the season maybe we would have made the playoffs. If it's to much for you to remember I will remind you. We started the season off with 7 consecutive losses and the defense was a huge reason for it.

    The more the Trifecta Circus is broken up the better.
