The Miami Dolphins could have put their fate in Brandon Marshall's hands for a third season, but that probably would have been a disaster
The Miami Dolphins could have kept Brandon Marshall around for a third season under a third different head coach.
They could have rolled the dice and hoped Marshall would keep his mouth and his emotions under control, even as he went through another season in his prime without a quarterback partner he deemed elite.
But that, I think we learned this week, would have been a disaster.
First, new Dolphins coach Joe Philbin explained his egalitarian offensive philosophy more clearly than ever at Tuesday’s AFC coaches breakfast. Philbin talked of the importance of balance, of establishing a variety of weapons, and diminished the importance of feeding one particular talent within that framework.
