Quick Blog On Adam Gase

CYStg62UsAEIQXK

Alright, now that things have died down and people are in playoff mode waiting for Superbowl 50 to happen, I’ve thought about it and i think Dolphin fans should be a little bit more excited about Adam Gase than was initially said. I could be totally wrong because with this organization being run by Stephen Ross, things could just go terribly wrong, but the facts are now that moving forward, Adam Gase is our head coach for the next 5 years. Now the first reaction with no one really knowing anything about Gase was that this was Philbin 2.0 getting some OC with no Head coaching experience and him bringing in his staff and the next thing you know we end up .500 for 3 years. But by all accounts everyone around the league likes Gase and unlike Philbin who was stuck with 1 organization for for a decade, Gase has been around the league with a few teams and leaving behind a positive reputation every time.

Really that is the one big selling point to Gase, that he’s been around the league and under many respected coaches. Starting off with none other than Nick Saban when he was at LSU, from there to Mariucci, Mike Martz, McDaniels for awhile as a WR coach, then QB coach in under John Fox for Peyton Manning, to last year where he was the OC of the Bears working well with Cutler who might’ve had his best season as a bear with Gase working closely with him and ultimately that was a huge factor in hiring Gase.

Once the Dolphins committed millions upon millions on Tannehill, everyone expected him to break out into the franchise QB he’s shown some flashes of. Obviously things never worked out with Philbin, and after this little experiment with Dan Campbell, who is most likely gone once Gase brings in his team, it was time we focused a major part of the coaching regime on making Tannehill worth his money. If he’s able to make one of the most disliked QBs in the league into a somewhat conversation of a decent quarter back, then it seems like what we need here in Miami with Tanney making even more money coming off of a dismal season. Obviously there are holes in every part of the game that need fixing on defense and offense, but for now, we’re working on a problem that is the face of the team and organization, and for that, i like the move to bring in Gase and either way, I’m kinda looking forward to see how this unfolds, either an improved season or a complete disaster for the next few years.

P.s- I hate the #StrongerTogether hashtag. What ever, onto 51.

Dolphins Hire Adam Gase

It was a nice calm saturday today. Wanted to get fit so i went for like a 4 mile jog ( i walked like 3.9 and jogged the last .1 mile to avoid the neighbors dogs barking at me). I went out to Panera for lunch trying to get healthy with a salad when all of a sudden news broke of this mid in line ordering a Chicken Cobb with Avocado and i didn’t quite now how to react because i just feel mixed feelings about this and i haven’t seen any of the press yet about his plan or anything. I know other teams were pretty interested and he’s kind of the guy this off season but then again this is kind of like Philbin 2.0 just years younger. All i know is my first and only reaction right away was to order an entire baguette and im almost done eating said baguette. Tons of butter too. But a bigger recap when i get time to burn these carbs.

Ugly Wins For The Dolphins But A Wins A Win

4304908144_2bff872aab

Two of the hottest teams in the preseason go head to head went to the 4-7 bowl and only 1 team prevailed and thats the Fins baby! Ugly win but people aren’t going to remember how the team won, they just remember the record in the end of the season and as of right now thats 5-7. At this point im pretty sure Stephen Ross is laying all his eggs on the fact that we have the big 50th season game against the Giants where we go throw back uni’s and as long as we win that game, to Ross, it was a season win to his ass. Well if thats the case, maybe carry some momentum from this weeks win with a longer week to plan for playing Monday night against the Gmen and hopefully win. But thats next week.

This week was honestly a brutal one to watch. The Dolphins scoring plays all came withing 20 seconds and from there on it was sitting on our butts for a whole entire half of football waiting for the Ravens to play catch up. Score less first quarter and only 9 1’st downs for the fins and then Rashad Jones picking off Matt Schaub, which was bound to happen, then a 38 yard TD pass from Tannehill to Parker. Things were looking great, making plays on offense, then making plays on defense with a Derrick Shelby turning a blocked pass into an interception running it in 22 yards for a TD with Matt Schaub looking gassed running after him past 5 yards. A nice 2 point conversion running the ball in by Ajayi and from there it was a waiting game till the clock ticked down to 0. Was waiting for worse to happen especially with Lamar Miller fumbling the ball in Miami territory but lady luck was on our side when Justin Tucker went wide right on a missed FG opportunity.

On paper, through the eye balls, on screen the dolphins played awful but not awful enough to lose the game. Hopefully some of that had to do with Zac Taylor taking the place of Bill Lazar after he got canned earlier this week but the narrative now is that The Dolphins win when were we can someone so I don’t actually think there’s any truth to that obviously, but good on Taylor making the decision to run the ball more. Seriously week 12 we were 9 carries for 12 yards. This week, 26 carries for 94 yards. Big step up considering how bad this season has been but for now, 5-7 and everyone waiting to break these bad boys out for Monday.

BREAKING: Welp Philbins Officially Out

The Miami Dolphins fired coach Joe Philbin on Monday after a 1-3 start to the season, league sources confirmed to ESPN. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel had earlier reported Philbin's firing. Philbin, 24-28 in Miami since taking over in 2012, became the first head coach in the NFL to lose his job this season. The Dolphins entered this year with high expectations but looked mostly uninspired and disorganized during their current three-game losing streak. Miami has been outscored 91-48 during that stretch. Philbin met with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross on Sunday in London after a 27-14 loss to the New York Jets, and said afterward that he was confident in his job security. Ross, however, had other thoughts once the team returned to the United States. Dolphins tight ends coach Dan Campbell will serve as Miami's interim head coach for the remainder of the season. The Dolphins have been awful on both sides of the football. Miami is ranked No. 23 in total offense and No. 30 in total defense, including dead last against the run at 160.5 rushing yards per game despite the addition of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Philbin is 4-8 in his past 12 games dating back to last season. Philbin survived the Dolphins' bullying scandal two years ago and the team's late-season collapses in 2013 and 2014. He received a contract extension earlier this year that will pay him through the 2016 season.

Well that was fast but also like 3 years over due. Hope the best of luck to where ever Philbin goes whether its a OC or DC job else where (any team would be dumb to put him at HC again) or maybe just moonlighting as a night time live musical performance at some run down bar. either way on to the next with Dan Campbell filling in for the rest of the season. Haven’t heard anything on Kevin Coyle yet though. His ass better go too.

The Dolphins Stink In America And In The UK

Welp, Yesterday was fun huh? Losing 27-14 to a division rival. Start the morning completely miserable because all of a sudden all the hype going into the season about how this is a different Dolphins team is almost entirely diminished after the loss across the pond.  Lets start with the obvious.

Joe+Philbin+Miami+Dolphins+Rookie+Camp+d754hXbIc2oljoe-philbin-rapping-ftr_17c8rowngy341rbx9x4nybalvWhen I saw the video of Philbin dancing on stage singing that people should worry about the Dolphin coming to town i was almost sure They were gonna win almost all the away games. That you don’t just sing and dance to that with a baller suit and a top hat on with the utmost confidence for no reason. Well now Im thinking its more of a “Let me try to get the cool popular black kids to like me so they don’t give me a wedgie and a swirly in the locker room” type of move. Seriously I was almost getting worried his plain vanilla ass was gonna be stranded and marooned in London after yesterday. He can sing and dance all he wants and take the team to go see NWA biopics but if you suck at being a head coach and lead the team into another abysmal season your ass should get fired.

Kevin Coyle. Umass Amherst alum. He doesn’t know football. Defense has just looked worse and worse through the seasons. should definitely leave his ass in London.

Its time i think we start looking past Tannehill. Don’t hate the guy but he’s constantly on the boarder of being past mediocre but never seems to move past it and become a real franchise QB. Why? maybe because that boarder is an impenetrable roof that is his QB abilities. Maybe he can one day take over a game and actually lead his team to a win and playoffs but as of right now, with the way the offense looked, he no longer seems like he’s teetering on that line of being mediocre to franchise.

Ndamukong-Suh

The big bad Ndamukong Suh. 114 million dollar bust. At first i thought his ass would be melting in the Florida sun and won’t accomplish a thing. But then i said to my self, black people don’t like the snow so maybe he’ll like playing in Florida. But then its 4 weeks later and he seems like a bust. No doubt it has to do with Coyle and confusing defense schemes but I also don’t like scum players and Suh is the top of the list. Oh and he might’ve tried to kick Fitzpatricks head off. Yea it looks accidental, but thats what happens when you have a laundry list of dirty penalties as your reputation. 

So there you have it Dolphins stink in Florida, they stink in America, and they really stink in London. Hey NFL, really good job letting Florida teams being an ambassador of the sport. Dolphins now 1-2 in Wembley. and 1-5 for Florida teams. Maybe if we played in Spain we can rally with the spirits of Ponce De Leon but as for now we we slowly and depressingly march onward to Tennessee to face the Titans who has a rookie QB who I can absolutely see beating us. Hopefully though, someone’s on the chopping block this week (Kevin Coyle, Joe Philbin maybe but I kinda like him still from his on stage performance and i need that Philbin to blossom eventually.)

Side note- I wonder how Ponce De Leon would do a DC or HC? Having a 16th century Spanish Conquistador as a head coach or defensive coordinator can’t be that much worse than Kevin Coyle

Joe Philbin’s Lost His Mind

 

Who is this guy!? Joe Philbin just putting on a clinic on stage rocking out. Saturday preseason game against Carolina? Philbin ain’t got time for that, he probably has to go watch other summer blockbusters and sell out venues once that useless game ends. Memo to the rest of the NFL- You better lock up the back doors and run for your life when the Dolphins come to town!

 

**UPDATE** Im Offically on Philbin watch for the next 42 hours. Is he on a drug binge? Did he find out he has terminal cancer and doesnt give a fuck anymore? I dont know but im about to get an all white tux complete with a top hat and just link up with Joe and the rest of the Dolphins team and staff and party on the town maybe.

What Does Joe Philbin Do To Ready A Team During Pre-Season? He Cancels Walk Through And Takes Everyone To See Straight Outta Compton

Love it. Nothing says confidence like taking the fellas out have a nice bonding experience and watch the hit biopic about the worlds most notorious rap group instead of doing boring walk throughs in a preseason game. Team bonding between coach and players. Yea Philbins about to enter his 4th season with the Dolphins trying to fight mediocrity. But just maybe Philbins gonna change up his coaching method and he knows this seasons gonna get past .500 mark. This isnt sarcasm either. Its me buying into Philbin in a last chance of desperation.

-It’s also just funny thinking about an old white guy in a theater packed with big NFL players, a majority of them being black.
