  • The Trend

    Seems more and more offensive Head Coaches hired will be calling their own plays. If they do hire an OC by title it seems just to put together the game plan. Koetter, Jackson, Gase, Pederson have already announced this, wouldn't be surprised mcadoo will do the same. If they are gonna be successful or not they want to be in control of their own destiny and calling own plays is a great start! My question is, does history say this added responsibility is positive or negative to the overall HC duties?
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

    It must make their jobs more complicated but it does make sense to me why they want to call their own plays. It's kind of like when a coach wants to pick his own players. The coach that gets to pick his own players is more in control of his own destiny. We have seen many coaches get fired because the team is not winning but often times it has to do with the GM doing a poor job at picking the right players to help his coach out. Since these coaches are not picking their own players the next best thing is to be able to at least pick their own plays, which is supposed to be a strong suit of Gase's. My only problem with this situation is that it appears that he also has to hold Tannehill's hand as well as his other responsibilities. Gase is making moves though that make me think that he knows he can't take that hand holding responsibility on too much and has hired some coaches to help in Tannehill's development. This will be his first season with an NFL experienced staff and QB coach who will be working with him so THIS has to be Tannehill's last season of excuses. I expect him to improve drastically or be cut loose, not in between. Either way, competition for him is a must.

      No excuses for Tanehill but I will also trust Gase assessment of Tanehill and if he deserves to continue after next year. Having so many coaching and scheme changes in his young career is not a good thing. Hope he can grasp Gase X/O and have Gase draw up plans to utilize his strengths. Gase may heavily count on the Defensive side to self monitor because he will be engrossed in the Offense almost exclusively.

      All we can do is hope that Gase and Co. can do something spectacular with this team we all love so much. We as fans deserve it! We've been waiting a LONG time for something good to happen for this team. Although it was so much fun watching Dan Marino sling that football every week we never got to see him win a Super Bowl. It would sure be nice to be able to have that feeling again as an adult. :-)

    At least Gase will be more engaged and hands on that Philbin was... also nice to see that Gase is about tailoring his offense to his player's strengths as opposed to Philbin and Coyles who always talked about ''scheme fit'' - i.e. having players adapting to what they wanted to do. Annoying to see so many former Dolphin's players playing for other teams who are far more successful or in the playoffs.

    I don't mind Gase wanting to call his own plays. Hopes he's good with clock and TO mgt as well.

      Antonio Brown would be just an average player if he had been playing on the Dolphins the past few years.

      I agree... players who have succeeded here seemed to do so in spite of Philbin and his staff. Hate we missed out on both Mike McCoy and Bruce Arians for Philbin.

      Maybe he can utilize Rizzi like Campbell did in helping with clock management.
