Post Edwards promotion great; Turner status merits scrutiny Read
Quote:
... Because in his last two seasons coaching the Dolphins linebackers -- Edwards's second stint with the team following a tenure that lasted 2005-2009 -- the unit has mostly underperformed. Indeed, last season as the Miami defense fell to 24th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed, the worse ranking since 2007, it was clear that linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Phillip Wheeler were at the core of the problems with the run defense.

That fact is so obvious that at least one general manager candidate interviewing recently said the next GM must replace at least one of the two players because the performance from the positions did not merit the salary cap and actual money expenditure. ...

Ellerbe played quite well for Baltimore in 2012. Wheeler was outstanding in Oakland in 2012. And the two players the Dolphins jettisoned to upgrade to Wheeler and Ellerbe played better for their new teams. ...

Last season the Dolphins offensive line was, as the entire NFL knows, something of a problem ...

Offensive line coach Jim Turner oversaw the statistically most inept offensive line in Dolphins NFL history. ....

So while the offensive line that underperformed likely will get a nearly full reconstruction this offseason, the man who led that terrible line, likely will remain. ...

Anyway, this brings up another little issue:

What's Philbin thinking?

That his staff is completely competent and the players are not good...

:youwin:

We always can hope it gets real bad, and we can get a top pick next year... :embarrassed:

We had a top pick in the last draft.

I'll be honest, I think head coaches need 3 years to get their system in place, but with Philben and Cam Cameron I see (saw) the writing on the wall: they are not head coaching material. Philben's main job is put a staff around him to implement his system. I give him a big "F".

And hes going to be the greatest ever, hes a super talent and is not being utilized...

At least thats what Ive been told since expressing my dislike in the pick.....

Things like that are why I am actually curious to see what the new GM does. I would assume Philbin wants to add some offensive players, last year the trade up and extra 2nd was 3 picks. All 3 to defense for a team that struggles on offense..

Just makes no sense to me...

Million dollar question. 3 years or not Dave, this guy doesn't bend or change. His snap count is a joke and he makes no in game adjustments.
