  • Good read on Gase's ''offense''

    http://thedeependmiami.com/2016/01/1...-gase-offense/

    Adam Gase is not the typical candidate who comes from just one coaching tree. He has learned from several great football minds, and has decided to adopt what best fits his style from those approaches. He has formed a unique offensive identity. That is why we have not yet heard many concrete details about the Gase system; because there really aren’t any.
    In this article, we dissect what makes Gase’s offense so lethal, and specifically assess how it will fit the skill set of current Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
    There is no name for the Adam Gase offense. That is simply because it has not been run before. Gase has been a student of some of the game’s finest offensive minds. Steve Mariucci was one of the originators of the true West Coast Offense. Mike Martz engineered the “Greatest Show on Turf.” Martz learned from the Chargers’ revolutionary coach in the 1960s, Don Coryell, whose schemes have appeared in Gase’s offense. Possibly most importantly, Gase went to the Peyton Manning school of passing.

    ...
    After reviewing film, it is clear that the desire was not one sided during this coaching search. The Dolphins’ personnel fits perfectly with what Adam Gase wants to do.
    If he can resign Lamar Miller (which I think becomes a top priority), then he will have a formidable stable out of the backfield. He also will have Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills, who can all play similar roles to those of the receivers he had in Denver.
    Without comparing the players themselves, I can simply say that Parker can play the big-bodied role of Thomas, Stills can be the speed option that Sanders was, and Landry will be the lethal third down/slot option that Wes Welker was in 2013.
    It is also clear that Gase relies heavily upon tight ends in his offense. They will most likely make a strong push to resign Jordan Cameron, as he fits the bill as a tight end that can be used outside of the numbers, which would be to Gase’s liking.
    Now, for the all important question. Where does Ryan Tannehill fit into all of this?
    The answer is complicated. There are a few things that we can say with certainty, however. First, he can make all of the throws asked of him in the offense. Second, Gase will be able to utilize Tannehill as runner in some very unique ways. Third, Tannehill’s chemistry with Landry and Parker will serve him well, as many of Gase’s concepts require immense trust and communication between the quarterback and his primary targets (which seems obvious, but the importance is elevated in this system).

    It all really comes down to Tannehill's ability to execute - as the article itself points out. We should, finally, get more out of Jordan Cameron and Lamar Miller as well... We'll see...

    I thought Cameron has another year so I'm wondering if they mean an extension? . Miller hopefully will sign a fair deal. I am not crowning Gase a Demi god just yet cause I'm not too impressed with the points per game on the Bears. I mean the only thing that counts is that we score and win and scoring an average above 25 would be my high standards for his first year.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      There is no name for a Gase offense because he has never run his own team. This article doesn't make me feel better, but worse.

        You need to take a deep breath my friend. Look at what we had before. This guy is young, very respected in league circles, and has coached under some very good HC and coordinators. He's our coach, give him a chance will you. Feel free to say I told you so, I don't mind, but I have hope that he is going to be fine. He can't be worse than what we've had, including Campbell who is a great man, but not an x's and o's guy at this point in his career.

      so how is this any different than a bill lazor offense? all those offenses where more heavy on the pass side of offenses back when the run game was king.
      I think the pendulum is going to swing back to the power run game,smash mouth type football and that's the direction DC was heading. that is the best way to help tannehill is run the ball and mix the pass in at the right time,taking the pressure off him to carry the load.
      that also takes the pressure off the o-line to pass block. I heard one of the o-line guys say that it is easier to run block than pass block.
      tannehill can pass the ball great when there is no pressure to make the big play and if you don't have to put touch on the pass and if your not shooting the ball deep,other than that(not much left)he is just fine.
      I guess we will see what gase can pull out of his hat!
      I would like to see some major improvement in the qb performance to give me a good feeling that gase can deliver the things that the upper management believe he can!
      I never thought much of cultler and his play in chicago. viewed him as a average run of the mill qb that would never get the team any place great and they never did do anything really great.
      I know nothing about gase and he deserves his shot,but the thing I do know is I never thought much of cutler.gase might have made him better,but he didn't make him any kind of great IMHO!

        Scratch beneath the surface... The Bears scored 20.9 ppg this past season on a team that also suffered a huge amount of injuries, had an OL almost as bad as our own, and who played six games against the top 10 defenses in the NFL. You can argue that Gase squeezed as much out of them as he could have, especially with Cutler and after they traded Marshall to the jets. This and his work with Cutler is why he got so much praise.

        A lot different... and one of the things I like most is that he is noted for varying and adapting his offenses each week - something he credited with learning from Josh McDaniels, who does this with great success with the Pats. With Philbin/Lazor - we were going to throw a vast majority of the game - every game and Miller was a rarely seen in the 2nd half. Also, I posted several times about how badly some of our plays were where we flooded a side of the field with receivers and ignored the other side, effectively playing into the teeth of the defense. Additionally a lot of the time we would have 3 receivers running shallow routes short of the sticks with a sole receiver beyond the marker. This is what was so frustrating with Lazor running the Chip Kelly style of offense. Gase is noted for adapting and for developing and working with WRs and QBs.

        Additionally, Gase is here to further develop Tannehill and the passing game. Something Philbin, Lazor and Taylor weren't doing.

        Again, Gase wasn't my choice of a HC. I'd have rather had someone like Smith with Gase as an OC, but he is more accomplished than Philbin, Campbell, or Sparano, so I'll take a wait and see approach. IMO, he's already on the right track with the cutting of Jason Fox and the only hiring I have an issue with thus far if Chris Foerester. I think he could have found a much better OL coach...

          Exactly Cuch. I love the fact that he doesn't have a set system.. He goes game to game, player to player. He's a guy that knows that you design schemes to fit your players skills and the opponents strengths and weaknesses. He does not force players to fit his scheme nor does he approach every game with the same game plan no matter who we're playing. I like everything I continue to hear about this guy. People need to get over the experience thing. A lot of experienced coaches have failed on new teams. He wasn't my 1st, 2nd, or 3rd choice either, but if I had to rank now he'd be top 3 if not #1.

        Gase may have to learn to scale down offense to Quarterback and primary target. Targets is stretching it a bit unless he really is a Quaterback master.

          So this is GREAT news! Since Gase plays to the strengths of each individual player it shouldn't take him long to realize that Tannehill doesn't have many strengths and he is the reason why coaches in Miami don't last long, especially offensive coordinators, so he will pull Tannehill and put in somebody with real QB strengths that can actually score in the red zone, execute on 3rd downs, sense pressure, etc.
