Post Dolphins’ next OC needs to provide comfort, not sex appeal

Out of Chris Palmer (old school), John Garrett (lacks OC experience), Brian Daboll (bad Cleveland offenses) and Rob Chudzinski (uneven track record), Chud has the hottest league-wide buzz, but there’s competition for his services.
But sex appeal shouldn’t be the most important criteria. What should, and likely be atop the list is my exact agenda for finding the next Dolphins beat writer.
The next Dolphins offensive coordinator needs to be able to hit the ground running, and Sparano has to be comfortable working with him.
Problem is Ross, the man who signs the checks, wants an aggressive, creative offense. However, Ross doesn’t really understand you need good quarterback play to get that done. And truth be told, what Ross REALLY wants is to score a lot of points and win games.

...

That’s why working with anyone who lacks coordinator or head coach experience (another pitch for Mike Leach) is a bad idea. That’s why bringing in a west coast offense like the one Brad Childress has been part of (which takes time to implement and learn without a west coast quarterback) is another bad idea. This group doesn’t have time.
And that’s why Sparano shouldn’t have a hard time selling the next OC that Miami’s the right spot, and that this is the right job.
The Dolphins are in survival mode, and during survival mode selfish agendas trump sexy hires.
Here are some of my concerns and questions about the next offensive coordinator.
1. What quarterbacks have they had a hand in developing, and what is his view of Chad Henne, Tyler Thigpen and the veteran quarterbacks who will be available via free agency or trade.
2. How successful has his teams been at running the ball and using the tight ends. Also, what would his running game approach be in 2011?
3. What style of offense has he run, and how productive have they been league wide? Could that style mesh with the changing landscape of the NFL’s new pass happy league?
Deuces.

The next OC doesn't need sex appeal. He needs to be aggressive and believe in attacking defenses down the field field. Here are some interesting stats for the Dolphins passing attack for the 2010 season.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/splits/_/na ... i-dolphins

Miami attempted 557 passes and completed 335 of them for a 60.1 completion percentage. Off the 557 passes attempted, 393 of them where thrown behind the line of scrimmage to no more than 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. Of those 393 attempts Miami completed 259 passes. So to put that into perspective Miami attempted 71% of its passes for the entire season at 10 yards or less beyond the line of scrimmage. Of those 393 attempts Miami completed 259 passes. That means that 77% of Miami's completions for the entire season were thrown to 10 yards or less beyond the line of scrimmage.

Miami attempted 115 passes for the entire year between 11 and 20 yards from scrimmage. They completed 65 which is 19% of the passes completed for the year. Add those to the passes thrown at 10 yards or less beyond the line of scrimmage and it calculates to 91% of the passes attempted for the entire season were thrown at 20 yards or less from the line of scrimmage. And 97% of the completions for the season were thrown no more than 20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.

Miami attempted 49 passes 21 yards or further from the line of scrimmage. They completed 11 of those 49.
The numbers show that Miami only attempted to throw beyond 20 yards from the line of scrimmage on 9% of their attempts for the season. And they completed 3% of the completions for the season over 20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.

Thanks Rich. That was a typo. On 11 to 20 yard passing Miami attempted 115 and completed 65. I fixed it.

Yup. Which is also not helping Chad's "Checkdown" moniker.

Half of that problem was hopefully solved with the departure of Henning and Lee. Time for Chad to buck up, work with his receivers and pull the trigger from time to time.
