  • Our next head coach

    Is Dan Campbell, no question. I realize it's only one game, and the Titans aren't that great. However, we lost to a crappy team in week 2, should have lost at Washington, etc. Beyond that, Tennessee gave Buffalo all they could handle last week. Two weeks ago, we would have lost by a few points in a back-and-forth game.. Not only did we win, we walked all over Tennessee. I saw a totally different team today. The team that was advertised in the pre_season. I also saw something I haven't seen in a Miami coach in a long time: emotion. Someone who just didn't clap. I realize we have a lot of football left, but if today was any indication of the team we will field, I'd be concerned if I were other teams. We still have bugs for sure, but I'm actually very excited to see what Campbell can do.

    We don't need another fired coach. We don't need Pagano, Payton, or anyone else. No more recycled coaches. Promote from within. We made that mistake with Bowles. Don't screw this up with your love for "big names" Ross.

    Slow down, let's see how it plays out...Of course as Brian joked in chat now we should expect Ross to sign Campbell to a LT contract...LOL

      Ross has stepped back. It'll be Tannenbaum's call. They can't hire Dan outright anyway due to the Rooney Rule, but little doubt that Dan is the ''front runner''.

      Now let's see how we do against a team we've never beaten - the Texans. Hoping for Dan to make history next Sunday by leading us to a win against them.

        I agree with both. Based on what we saw today it is the right thing we want for a Head Coach. BUT...slow down nelly. We also need to see this team sustain it, and compete at a higher level with consistency. Let's see what happen next week against a better team in Houston. And then let's see what happens against New England and Buffalo. THEN we can have this conversation. But I today is the best day I have had all season long.

          I think we as long suffering Dolphins fans are just reveling in the moment. It was GREAT to see the team play hard, aggressive, fired up football. It's been a LONG time....

            Sure I'd like Campbell to earn a head coaching gig and run with it for a long time. A true Diamond in the rough!

              I didn't expect much from this game. I just hoped that they would show some life. I have to say I saw some life today. I loved how even with a 21 point lead they were not willing to sit on it. They continued to move the ball and score points. This is a game that the players needed to show them thta they coould do it.

                Aggressive with our offense backe up in our own end zone and a kill shot to end the game. When is the last time that happened ? I love what I saw today.

                  You said it. Today was the first time this season I actually opened my mouth and had reason to cheer. What I saw today really impressed me. I'm excited, as far as dreaming what this could turn out to be.

                A true Cinderella story in the making. Let's hope he doesn't turn into a pumpkin at midnight.

                  Killing a bad team is what good team do. Not saying we're that good but we killed a bad team.

                    They may be considered a bad team, or a bad offense, but they came into the game with the #1 ranked passing defense and were #9 against the run.

                    No way we would have played as well if Cautious Joe were still the HC or Coyle the DC.

                      The Titans are not a bad team. They could have easily beaten the Colts and Bills. We were just a team on a mission today. I hope we stay on this mission because this feels so good I want them to keep this up.

                        Agree... and beating the Texans will be historic for us. Getting to 3-3 would be huge.

                          Yes I very much want to beat the Texans next week. We should take that game personally and be as fired up to play that game next week as we were today. If we win and get to 3-3 then we will have realistic hope that we can at least be in the playoff hunt deep into the season. I think its possible that a 9-7 team could make the playoffs in the AFC this season.

                            That would be wild if we went 9-7 after a 1-3 start. With 5 games down and 11 to go, that's hard to fathom. Would mean winning 7 out of 11. Not unheard of, but still very difficult.

                              Yet winning 7 of 11 is, in reality a good, but not terrific accomplishment. This team was SUPPOSED to play at a .750 clip the entire season. So, assuming the Fins split with the Jills and Jests, the BIG determinator will have to be beating the Patsies at least once, as I believe both the Eagles and Cowboys are beatable, as are the Giants, if you can get to Eli. If not, his receivers will have a field day with the Fins secondary. Dallas can't run the ball that well, so the pass rush can again tee off. The Ravens are average...for them, and San Diego is winnable.

                              That said, all this is assuming today's result isn't a mirage. I don't think it is, as emotion can only take you so far. You have to own some skills, and apparently the Dolphins have considerable skills that up to today's game lay dormant , due to the horrible mismanagement of the team by Philbin and Coyle. Lazor looked downright humble today. Apparently, Al Saunders has some skill as well. When have the Dolphins shown show ball handling acumen? It looked a bit like Les Miles meets David Cutcliff offense.

                              We can't expect such domination constantly, but it seems we can expect aggression. Mariota is a great kid, and will recover, but I'm sure a wee part of all of us would like to see a bit of the same treatment towards Tom Brady, in particular.

                              Apologies for the extended post.
