  • Black Monday's a-comin'

    The results of Black Monday should be closely monitored by both the Fins and their fanbase as it will be pivotal in the number of teams looking for a new HC and/or GM, and how we rank in terms of desireability to the few competent guys out there looking to fill these vacancies. Good news (Is it really good news???) is it doesn't look like we'll have to worry about someone else stealing the GM we want, as it seems like a dead-cert that we'll be hiring within (either Grier or Eric Stokes, our director of personnel) unless they're smart enough to turn down the Fins offer, lol!

    I actually expect them to hire someone and give them full control both Head Coach and GM duties.

      I've been reading that it looks like they're going to 'promote' internally to fill the GM position, but that the Fins GM position isn't the same in the traditional sense as most org's, as he won't have ultimate control over personnel signings (This responsibility at least for now will remain Tannenbaum's)

      They may very well choose to relinquish that power to get the coveted candidate they're after, though IMO that doesn't usually seem to work out too well...

        I would love it if the Miami Dolphins hired a coach who wanted to put his staff in place, including his own general manager. That is not the Dolphins way though. What is the Dolphins way is to hire from within a losing business and promote someone from that company. The Dolphins are losers. They will hire someone from their losing franchise and promote them. They will pretend to search for a head coach who will be able to have full control, but in reality Tannenbaum wants that control so those coaches will get passed over, while appearing that they actually fought to hire them but lost out in the end. It will fool some fans, there will be arguing about this, but in the end it will be Tannenbaum's team and the Dolphins will turn into the South Beach Jets. This forum will be divided because some will think that the Dolphins lost out on big named coaches because of financial decisions, but it will really just be Tannenbaum's ego and his obsession to prove to the football world that the debacle in New York was just a fluke. In 2020 this team might come to its senses and fire Tannebaum and turn this ship in the right direction, hopefully by then it's because Ross has decided to get out of the football business. I hope I am wrong.

          Dolphins Won't Land Payton if Coach Leaves Saints Sunday, Jan. 3 Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reported Miami is not a potential destination for the current New Orleans head coach if he and the franchise part ways.

            That really sucks.....I'd love to have Payton (even if it cost us a 2nd rounder).

          It would cost us a high draft pick anyway and we can't afford to give up any picks with the number of holes we have.
          While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

            I think it's going to be Gase or Mora Jr.

              I'd be fine with either of those two but I think I'd prefer Gase.

The Aints could fire him or Payton could opt out of his contract and become a FA. I'm just stating that Payton does not want to coach the Dolphins. Jasan Duh Cantreportathing reported that if Payton were traded the Aints would not send Payton to a team he doesn't want to be with.

            Names I've heard associated with Dolphins coaching search (so far): Gase, Mora Jr., Mike Shanahan, Austin, Mike Smith, Koetter and Marrone.

            Mike Shanahan could reportedly make a return to the sidelines next season.
            According to NFL.com’s Albert Breer, Shanahan wants to coach again, and he may get the chance. He interviewed for the 49ers job last year and was impressive enough to make the Niners consider giving him the job. There are issues to a potential Shanahan hire. He’s 63 and the staff he’d want would give teams pause. However, Breer notes that, despite his tenure in Washington ending badly, he left a pretty good core of players there and did the same in Denver. Breer notes that Shanahan was fired in Washington was in large part because he wanted to go with Kirk Cousins as his starter, which time has shown to be a completely valid wish. There’s been a willingness to hire older head coaches in recent years. Just look at how well Bruce Arians is doing in Arizona. Don’t be surprised if Shanahan gets another look.

              Shanahan was ran out of town because he knew then what people are just figuring out now, that Cousins is a really good QB and Griffin is a self-centered diva. In My Opinion Shanahan lost his job because of RACISM in Washington DC. Ironic that the Washington REDSKINS organization would run out a head coach because of RACISM. I heard MANY African-American analysts side with Griffin and without saying the R word, they were thinking and/or implying it. The race card is usually used by RACISTS.

              LOL DF, I agree though, I remember when the Redskins, (racial slur intended), owner picked up Randall and Shanny the Rat benched him, same crap...Shanny was right about that as well....

              Of course there was a fat conservative guy that dared call Randall what he was....a bad QB, which I agreed with....

              I could be happy with the Rat, we'll have a tough mean OL on the boarder of cheating, and if he hires a DC, maybe he could get Wade back....hmmmm

            Dolphins interim head coach Dan Campbell will not be hired on a permanent basis, Sports Illustrated’s Peter King reports. When the team fired Joe Philbin after an early-season three-game losing streak, Campbell was promoted from tight ends coach to interim head coach. Miami won its first two games under Campbell, scoring a total of 82 points. The Dolphins beat the Patriots in their season finale on Sunday to finish the year at 6–10 and 5–7 under Campbell. Campbell, 39, played 10 NFL seasons as a tight end with the Giants, Cowboysand Lions, retiring in 2009. He began coaching with the Dolphins the following year. - Dan Gartland

              100% concur, Freak. I like Campbell a lot and really respect him. I wonder if there's any way we could keep him without giving him the HC spot? Probably not....but I'd hate to see him go.

              I would be ok with Shanahan as our next HC. I do think we should go with someone younger but if Shanahan really wants to coach again I think he could improve the Dolphins.

                Maybe he could come in and bring someone to groom to replace him in a few years.

                That's one of the reasons behind my choice of the Rat
