  • Speaking of Retread Coaches......

    How about Tom Coughlin? He'll probably be fired at the end of the season as the Giants HC. The Dolphins haven't tried him yet, but might be worth a try. Shula probably won't leave Carolina, and most high school coaches won't come to the Dolphins. Can Coughlin really do any worse?

    NO THANKS!!!!! The Giants should've easily won their division this year BUT his bad decisions & shitty time management at the end of either the first half or the game has cost that team their season!

    While you're right, he probably couldn't really do any worse...We better ALL be hoping for a bit better than that!

      It's going to be really hard for Miami to find a non-retread coach that is willing to take over this train-wreck of a team. Even an established coach like Jimmy Johnson, and the self-proclaimed football god Bill Parcells failed miserably down here with the evil-empire......There is something more that is holding this team back. Tbaum and the FO is my guess. Jesus Christ could part the Red Sea, could walk on water, heal the sick, and raise the dead, but even he would have trouble coaching the Dolphins to a winning season....

        How's Doug Marrone? Personally I want Hue Jackson but might just settle for Dougy.

          Doug Marrone didn't work out so well in Buffalo, and the same with Jackson in Oakland, but both have some HC experience, even though it's losing. I would expect the same thing here if either of those 2 were selected as Miami's HC. BUT, either can't be much worse than the last 15 years...

            I believe in 2014 Morrone came in at 9-7 for Buffalo. I'm thinking because he quit he will now work extremely hard for the Dolphins to save his reputation.

              He never made public the reason he quit the Bills. There are some similarities there to Nick Saban leaving mid-season.

                He and the FO had a different vision for the team from what I recall. He was also as anal retentive as Philbin was. With Philbin it was gum wrappers and shoe strings. With Marrone, it was matching socks and sweatshirts or sweaters in meetings. Attention to detail is welcome, being anal over stupid stuff that has nothing to do with actual practice or game performance isn't.

              There's no doubt in my mind that there's not a HC out there who can come in and immediately turn this thing around & speaking of JC, it's gonna take the patience of Job as far as this fanbase goes to wait it out...

              IMO, there is a HUGE something that holds this team back and it's that for whatever reason we can never get past the culture of losing & the loser's mentality we've cultivated for decades in Miami; it is stamped through to the core of this whole organization..This is proven out by the endless merry-go-round of new names & faces from the Owner to the GM, through the whole F.O. and Coaching Staff down to every player on the roster..We've tried absolutely EVERYTHING and other than all of the different names & faces, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING EVER CHANGES!

                There's no other choice then to blow it up, top to bottom... That's what a smart owner would do...

              Herald is reporting Jim Mora Jr, currently the UCLA HC, is a top candidate.

                What is Mike Smith doing and how do you guys feel about him? He turned Atlanta around in a hurry. Jim Mora, Jr. is intriguing. A lot of these guys do better on their second time around. Belichick, Carroll, Coughlin, etc.
                Can we sign this guy?

                  I'm intrigued by Mora Jr. as well..but i'm not a huge Mike Smith fan, i know he barely beat out Sparano for coach of the year his first year but he made some big time bumbling mistakes with Atlanta..To me the Falcons have long been a pretty talented team that never really met their potential...

                  In Tbaum we trust... lol... going to be interesting no matter who we hire as the HC. Some will like it, some won't.

                Mike Smith was in the running for several assistant jobs, but supposedly chose to sit out a year, spend time with his family, and recoop. He is rumored to be getting a lot of attention from the Saints to replace Peyton.

                He'd be a good candidate for us as well as he was pretty solid in Atlanta for the most part and he grew up in Daytona Beach.

                Smith was the 3rd fastest NFL coach to ever reach 50 wins. Playoff losses and roster/depth is what doomed him in Atlanta. His best team came up 10 yards short of a Super Bowl. Some of the issues in Atlanta were on him, but Dan Quinn is struggling with the same personnel issues this season despite having a talented, but again under achieving team.

                  Mike Smith is a guy I would be happy with.....though Peyton would be my first choice.

                    I don't think Tom Coughlin would want to come down to Miami and try and rebuild a football team at his age. I don't understand why they are always trying to fire him. The players seem to love the guy. He knows the game of football. They should just let the guy coach and leave him alone. Maybe it has something to do with the GM and not Coughlin? I don't follow the Giants but they are closer then the Dolphins to being a winner. I can't see him wanting to come down to Florida to this debacle of a franchise.

                      You raise an important point when evaluating these coaches. What else was wrong? For instance, you can't really count experience with the Raiders, Redskins or Bucs as all on the coach. Those are dysfunctional franchises with meddling owners and everyone knows it. In that next tier below the obvious are the Falcons, Jets, Bills and now the Dolphins! That changing the coaches and players still always leaves them underachieving, WHY?

                      I obviously agree. Hopefully Tannenbaum doesn't let his ego get in the way and he actually hires the best man for the job and not the best Yes Man for the job who will just be another puppet.
