We Need An Evil Scientist For OC

I hope Dr Frankenstein is available.

 I truly do.

Or even Dr. Frankensteen for that matter.

I hope Philbin doesn't go the safe route and hire another West Coast offensive guru.

Oh no, not that again, please.

Let's make every effort to bring in someone with so creative a genius that people believe he is mad!

Oh yeah, certifiably abnormal.

Noooo....not Abby Normal!

Abnormal.

Someone that wants to use this athletic group of offensive weapons so unpredictably that opposing defensive coordinators won't know exactly what could be coming next.

Someone who may not even have a track record to gage and chart.

Someone so unconventional that wisdom cannot even be attached yet it will be admired.

Someone who not only gets the players fired up but totally extinguishes any doubt who will win.

Yes, a complete madman yet justifiably poetic in an offensive manner.

Turn over some rocks, open some secret trap doors and search unconventionally for the unconventional.

Boy, if I only knew who.

If I only knew.

Phins Up!!!

    1. I am sure there are plenty of young creative guys out there Connie, plenty.
      One I know of is Ryan Carty, OC at New Hampshire.

  3. Ron Prince = Mad Hatter. He made Schaub and Freeman look great. Look at the crazy plays he called at Rutgers last year.

    1. Sol, are you a Jersey guy too???
      If so, please stay warm today.
      Yes I know of Ron Prince. Very creative and used his side receivers well.
      Who I'd love to get would be Rutgers or Tampa Bays special teams coaches. Those guys know how to dial up blocks.

    2. No don't poach Rutgers they are going to need all the help they can get next year in the Big 10. I'm also not big on NCAA coach moving to the NFL, the track record isn't that good.

    3. The creative guys like Chip Kelly and Jim Harbough did well.

    4. I am looking forward to Rutgers playing in Big 10, Chris.

    5. I try not to miss home games. If they had a QB they can play with anyone. Nova has a way of breaking your heart. I think I just turned Dolphin blog, into a Scarlet Knights blog, sorry. Any thought on the Kyle Shanahan, Houstons O pretty good back then and good with QBs

    6. Haha Chris...RU Rah Rah!!
      With WRs they have, QB play was not what it could have been.
      He is good coach. Not sure if he is waiting to see what happens with Dad.
      But I'd like to go outside the box

    7. He was an NFL Assistant Offensive Line coach.

      Alabama A&M (OL)
      South Carolina State (OL)
      James Madison (OL)
      Cornell (OL)
      Virginia (OC)
      Kansas State (Head Coach)
      Virginia (ST)
      Indianapolis Colts (assistant OL)
      Jacksonville Jaguars (assistant OL)
      Rutgers (OC)

    8. Could be OL coach.

  4. Great Article Carl! I am not sure which is worse, that this was the most predictable offense ever. (multiple games it was suggested teams knew the plays and knew the snap count) or that despite that, Philbin is the 3rd best coach the Dolphins have ever had. Don't believe me?

    Shula>Jimmy>Philbin>Wanny>Cameron>Sporano>Saban

    I am too young to even know who George Wilson even is.


    Just looking at the coaches between-Jimmy and Philbin is about like watching a cow take a dump only worse.

    How about Mike Shula for OC? That would be wild. :P

    1. I doubt he is gonna leave the Panthers OC job without Asst HC designation attached, gofins4sb.

    2. BTW gofins4sb, thanks again for the compliment.

    3. Wannstedt won 43 games in 4 years with Fiedler and no one was happy.

  5. How about Barney Rumble of the flintstones; That's about where we are in our leadership anyway. The OC was not the problem. Tannehill is the problem. I don't know why everyone is overlooking the obvious. How can a team hope to win a lot of games in this scoring league with a QB that cannot throw the deep ball.? Oh well, at least they are promising to allow a real competition for the starting QB job. So, either way, Tannehill will be out of the starting position. Then our offense can move with a smooth rythum as other NFL teams.

    1. First things first David.
      Get a bright creative OC and then worry about who starts at QB.
      Are you related to Matt Moore?
      Just curious.

      Delete
    2. I would not be 100% sure Matt Moore makes the team now that OC is changing. We need 4 starters oline 1 starting TE, and starks, solia ,Grimes , Clemons are all free agents. If you can get a pick and the cap space to let Moore go. It may be "Moore" appealing to make Devlin #2 and use that cap space and draft pick to get a starter at another position

    4. Very good point on possibility of shopping Matt Moore, gofins4sb.
      Not sure I would give him up cheap. He is a wonderful insurance policy.

  6. No Carl; I am not related to Matt Moore. We would have made the playoffs and won our division with Pat Devlin or Matt Moore. However, I am a realist. You have to have a QB who has the normal QB motions and audibles that all offenses are use to working with. Tannehill's awkward motions and audibles are retarding the entire offense. He is going to destroy Mike Wallace fleeting speed and Wallace's ability to get behind the defenses; in Wallace's efforts to try to conform to Tannehill's too long, too short and out of route passes. Mike Wallace is slowly damaging his joints trying to come back for the short awkwards passes that Tanehill KEEPS throwing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Well, I am for giving Tannehill another year. I am shocked he keeps missing Wallace but one more year.

      Delete
    2. Watch the coach's film of this years games. The timing patterns the fins used with Wallace were just plan crap, Sherman never understood how fast he was

      Delete
    3. I didn't like him lining up on the right side every play.
      I would put him in slot and in motion, have him in the backfield, move him around yo play have with his speed.

  7. Carl, another thing about the trends in Miami; For years, the dolphins coaches relied completely on the talented side of their team. I give you an example: When we had a smoking hot offense with "Dan the Man" and could score at will; no one cared about the talent on defense. When Jimmy Johnson came along and built the best defense we ever had' he neglected the offense and even put the handcuffs on Marino.
    When Miami dolphins won regularly, they were good on one side of the ball and great on the other side. This is the kind of team that wins each week. Because no one has a team where the offense and the defense shows up EVERY GAME! This is why you have to have talent on both sides of the ball just in case the game is put their hands because the better half of the team did not show up for a particular game.

    1. JJ had the best defense the Dolphins ever had, fastest yes best no way, The No-Names were the best you can't argue that, the Killer B's were pretty darn good as well. Now don't get me wrong JJ drafted some of the best defenders in Dolphins history, Zack my favorite Dolphin of all time, Surtain and Madison one of the best CB tandems in NFL history and JT. The Defense as a whole not the best in Dolphin history.

    3. Chris, just considering how long that defense lasted with fragments of the previous defenders that you named, solidifies my point!

    4. With cap issues you almost have to pick your poison. Offense or defense, unless you are brilliant at drafting. That's what we need.

  8. Yes they were good for a long time, but the never came close to smelling a championship. Great defenses are made in the playoffs. End of story
