  • My short list of new Head Coaches

    1. Josh McDaniels - Don't laugh at this. I think he was way too young his first time around. He knows offense, and even better, he knows the Patriots way
    2. Brian Kelly - the guy ​was ready to take the Eagles job before getting cold feet at the last minute.
    3. David Shaw - proven winner
    4. Kyle Shanahan - one of the best young coordinators in the league
    5. Gus Malzahn - full of fire, he also knows how to run a creative offense.

    1. I don't have an issue, and may be on my shorts list
    2. NO, NO, NO...he has zero NFL experience and it's not about the HC but the staff you can build, not sure if he could build and NFL staff.
    3. I think you mean Davis Shaw...He would be the top of my very short college coach's list. He has a lot of NFL experience and contact...I am a big fan.
    4. Might be just out of my short list as would rather have his dad, but I like Kyle.
    5. No, see #2...we don't need a "creative" offense, we need to get back to basics...it works.

      Not having NFL experience isn't always a bad thing. I am getting tired of the re-treads that keep popping up every off season. This team needs either a hot coordinator or a very successful college coach that has fire and desire. Someone that doesn't take crap. The only NFL coaches that MAY be available that I would consider are:
      Sean Payton
      Jim Schwartz
      John Harbaugh (if the Ravens decide to move to another direction)

    1. Josh McDaniels - Not a fan. He destroyed the Broncos who had a really good team before he got there.
    2. Brian Kelly - Not a fan.
    3. David Shaw - He is on the bottom of my short list. He is on the bottom because he is a college coach but he is a winner and I would like the hire if nobody else panned out.
    4. Kyle Shanahan - I like this hire a lot and he is on my short list too.
    5. Gus Malzahn - As Nole pointed out I am not sure he has enough friends in the NFL to put together a staff that would help put a winner out on that field.

    My Short List
    1. Sean Payton
    2. Kyle Shanhan
    3. David Shaw

    I would have to do some homework on Payton and Shanahan but as of right now I think Payton is on his way out in New Orleans but I think he has enough ties to the NFL to build a winner with a great staff. Could we hire both Shanahan's? Together they most certainly should be able to put a great staff together and it could make for a cool father and son coaching team.

      I still favor McDaniel's and / or Kyle. IMO of course. Dad Shanny is to old and has lost his edge.

    Actually, it's probably Josh himself who would laugh at this..he sees us twice a year & would have to be a fool to give up winning every Sunday to take over the most dysfunctional team in the league...

      I think this team is a coaches dream. Talent is there, just needs cleaning up. You look like a genius for cleaning up the mess. This is a much better opportunity than a team that just lacks talent across the board and would take years to fill the bare cupboard. Your time would probably run out before you could turn the corner.

      While i was speaking a bit half-kiddingly, i'm really not so sure about that; like it or not if we as diehard's look past our own bias, this team is about as close to dysfunctional as it gets..Whether it's all on the coaching, the talent's not quite as good as we think it is, the owner's bumbling ways or just the losing mentality we've developed, we haven't been able to attract much interest in big name coaches as of late, with guys like Gruden & Cowher showing absolutely zero interest (I know they'll probably never coach again, but if this job was so attractive they would've at least been tempted to talk) & guys like Harbaugh & Fisher flat-out turning us down cold..Even that Assistant from the Pats (can't remember his name) said thanks but no thanks...

      Perhaps a guy like Daniels would view it as DD said as a challenge, coaching against Bellicheat in the same division..or perhaps he'd view it as career suicide...

    Here is my short list for coaches…god I hate talking about this in week four;
    1. Mike Shanahan – Proven winning coach in the NFL. I know he’s 63 but if you listen to him talk he still has the fire and I think he would love to rub it in the face of Snyder as he wanted Tannehill and not RGMe

    2. Jon Gruden – I like Chuckie and think he would be able to work well with Tannehill. That being said I don’t think he’s coming out of the box.

    3. Kyle Shanahan – If I can’t get dad bring in son. I think he has grown a lot and runs the same type of offense his dad does. One in which I think Tannehill would work well in.

    4. Greg Roman – I think he is a good coach and has done very good things with less than great QB’s

    5. David Shaw – I didn’t realize he had as much NFL experience as he did. I love the way Stanford plays football and really enjoy listening to Shaw during the draft. I think he’s the type of guy that would command respect.

    These would be my short list right now…That could change as we get closer and see who may be available.

      David Shaw I'm not familiar with but I could get on board with any of the others. I always thought Shanahan was a weasel but I know he wanted to draft tanny and not RG3 plus I can see his system fitting around Tanny. Wether you like Tannehill or not, I think he's in our forseeable future.

      I never was a huge fan of his, but I could see that he would bring some valuable assets to the table. We NEED discipline, and FIRE! He carries boatloads of both!

    I'm open to Schwartz as either DC or HC... http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/r...26-column.html

    Also:
    Adam Gase - he turned down the 9ers because they wouldn't let him pick his own DC. He was Peyton Mannings QBC and OC.
    Josh McDaniels - he's an a-hole, but gets results and is smart.
    Greg Roman - has done wonders for the Bills Offense this season even apart from the Fins game.
    Kyle Shanahan - think he'd be an ideal HC or OC for Tannehill and he's hungry to move out of his Dad's shadow.

      Schwartz is right out of that list for me. He'd actually be my top choice for DC. The Lions were undisciplined and I always thought that is what killed them with the talent they had, but after 3+ years of picking up chewing gum wrappers maybe Miami needs a coach that can bring and edge to them.

      I wouldn't want Kyle to step out of daddy's shadow too much...LOL

        I like a guy with fire and intensity. I'd have been perfectly happy to have hired Rex Ryan as he fits that mold.

        We're pretty much the Lions of the AFC at this point. Maybe Schwartz gets it right in his 2nd go at HC. lol...

        I'm pretty in on either Gase or Shanahan though. Any of the 3 would be an improvement over Philbin.

            Chip Kelly, Bruce Arians, Dan Quinn, Bellicheat, Pete Carroll, Todd Bowles.... Realistically, I would look at OC's or DC's in a winning program for while or I would look for a high ranking College coach with a winning program the players love to play for and maybe the few Canadian coaches up north.. There's nothing in the NFL as coaches right now that do it for me right now...Has been's" I'm not interested in... We need a coach that can motivate and inspire players... And that can bring in a surrounding cast with the same philosophy ...

            My first choice is Sean Payton. I like the idea of poaching Josh McDaniels away from the Pats and I also like Kyle Shanahan.

              Unfortunately that's not a ringing endorsement. A pet rock would be an improvement over Philbin...lol

                It friggin sucks that this is what we are talking about! Sean Payton & Jim Schwartz & Chuckie for me. Can you please just finish him now please Mr.Ross?

                  Gruden for me. I am sure Ross has enough money to lure him out of the box. The salary cap does not apply to staff. From there, I really like the idea of Mariucci. A sleeper pick for DC would be Jim Leavitt. This are all offseason moves.

                  I would have fired Philbin, Coyle Sunday night, Promoted Lazor to IHC. I would use the Schwartz for DC. That's really about all you could do in season.

                    If I were Ross, I would go after Bill Cowher. Has DC, HC, and SB experience. He would turn this team around. He quit coaching because his wife had terminal cancer, and has since passed on. A great coach that could be tempted to come to Miami if Ross gives him control.

                      I'd be okay with Cowher. Nobody could say he doesn't have fire and passion. One of the best examples of a players coach but still a guy the players respected.
