The coaching staff

The coaching staff 


I just wanted to say that I feel really good about our coaching staff, as good as I have in a long time. I preface that by saying I felt really good about Nick Saban`s first staff (Dom Capers at DC, several good college guys also). The biggest thing I measure coaches on is development: our safeties are now ranked the top tandem in the NFL. And they are young. Our QB`s (all 3) appear to be improving. I really like Coyle and Sherman as coordinators, and like how Philbin delegates, and leads with words and action. He doesnt lead by shouting.
Sherman might, though! Your thoughts?

RE: The coaching staff 


I absolutely love Coyle, particularly for our team. He seems very creative and aggressive, and he's a great secondary technician. I think the best coach on our team is kacy rogers, our d-line coach. Since 2008, soliai, Starks, wake, Langford, Randall, McDaniel, odrick, Shelby, and Vernon have become solid NFL starters or rotational players. Vaughn Martin looks very good so far as well. Merling is the only bust in that time frame. Between Rogers d-line expertise and Coyle's secondary expertise and aggressiveness, we have a great coaching staff in place to develop a dominant defense.

I was very disappointed in Sherman last year. Our offense sucked, and I feel that we didn't play to our strengths (Reggie bush up the middle, davone Bess running fly routes.) However, his success will be determined by his ability to coach Tannehill. Our qb coach is a 30 year old kid , and ultimately Tannehill's development will fall on Sherman.

I like Philbin's demeanor as a head coach, and he didn't have too many sparano-esque head scratching decisions. I'd like to see the o-line develop under Philbin - if that happens (and tanny develops) then Philbin will be successful here.
Somebody gave me a Hickey.

Re: The coaching staff 


I agree with JSCHWALD

Rogers is awesome & him & Coyle are perfect together.
Im excited to see this defense once theres a few games underneath them.
I know were running a base 4-3, but to me the personnel is additionally perfect for a 3-4, meaning I think we will see more of a mixed up hybrid.

Sherman. I just didn't like his play calling last year. That simple. I feel nowhere near as confident about our offense. Hope im wrong, I certainly will be rooting for Sherman.

I DO like how they are moving the OL around, theres something I really like about having Richie teamed up with clabo on the right side. But that really leaves question marks on the important left side. I think there looking still for an additional piece LG. If Martin does stumble, all of a sudden our whole off season looks like it was wrong.

RE: The coaching staff 


Our defensive blitz schemes and blitzers are either really good or our Oline and protection is not that good. Camp reports seem to show the QB is getting would be sacked a lot and reading about a lot of running plays getting blown up in the backfield. Really hope this is the product of genius blitzing by Coyle and excellent execution by the defense. If so Coyle is really going to become a big name in 2013 because the defense sounds like its much improved since last season, but then again its only camp and they aren't tackling yet.

Not a lot of contact even in pads so I don't know what to make of the O-Line struggles.  It's tough to block someone when you can't really engage them lol.  Then again, it is concerning that so many blitzers are getting through the line untouched.  Thankfully there are 5 pre-season games to get those issues solved.  I do think that the necessary adjustments to the O-Line due to Jerry/Louis not being in there for practice is causing a bit of an issue as well.  1 Good thing?  Clabo is holding fort at RT pretty well, except Cam Wake blew him up twice on either Saturday or Sunday Practice lol

I'm more concerned with the subpar-at-best ownership of the team than the current coaching staff. In the NFL that matters.

You really think ownership matters?

RE: The coaching staff 


I like the way the Dolphins are being run now, at least we have a shot at being good. Ross spent good money to upgrade this team and he kept buying up tickets so I could watch them play. Ireland has learned enough now to an effect GM, Philbin was good hire as were Sherman and Coyle.

I do think Sherman needs to tweak the offense in and become less predictable with his play calling, but all that could be easily explained away with it being Tannehill's 1st year. It won't be so easy this year, the offense needs to start producing in a big way.

It does sound like the defense with the addition Dannell Ellerbe and Phillip Wheeler have added some serious speed to the linebackers and the pass rush with them blitzing it could be special. Revamped linebackers revamped secondary and Dion Jordan and a much improved Oliver Vernon this unit is primed to be very good... May have the best pass rushing unit in the NFl to go along with an already dominate run stuffing unit. 3rd down got Wake Odrick Starks Jordan as the front 4 that's without bringing the linebackers and if the corners are much better we free up Reshad Jones to do some free lance blitzing....
