Dolphins introducing offensive coordinator at 12:30 p.m

The Dolphins have called a 12:30 press conference today to introduce their new offensive coordinator.

I assume there will no suprises and Brian Daboll will meet with the South Florida media.

The fact this availability is even happening is interesting. You'll remember last year the team hired Mike Nolan as the new defensive coordaintor and had no such availability. You'll recall for three years the team has signed free agent after free agent and not made any of them available (Brandon Marshall made himself available last year).

So why the change now?

Are the Dolphins worried about the negative reaction to Daboll because he comes to Miami from the Cleveland Browns, a team that scored fewer points than Miami the last two years? Do the Dolphins want to use this opportunity to turn the negative tide on a coach so he gets a fair shot before he calls his first play for the team?

Or have Tony Sparano and Jeff Ireland decided the way they've been doing business the past three years -- in a bunker and away from publicity -- no longer is the right way to do business now that Bill Parcells is gone?

Or is this perhaps a sign that Sparano and Ireland -- obviously weakened by last season's 7-9 record and the Parcells departure -- having to succumb to the wishes of the business side of the organization? Parcells never had to do that but, obviously, he's Bill Parcells. Now that Parcells is gone, has the business side of the organization overtaken the football side as having more power thus is dictating media availabilities to the football side?

I seriously doubt these particular questions will be answered.

But believe me, the question why the policy change will be asked.

I will be tweeting the more interesting points of the press conference in real time. Follow me on twitter.

cool, now maybe we can hear armando whine about one less thing.

I think the reason that this presser is taking place is that Stephen Ross has communicated to Ireland and Sparano that he wants a more media friendly, fan friendly team.

You go mando!!! bring um out of there shell

Things to do today:
1. Walk dogs Done
2. Start laundry Done
3. Get car and truck washed Done
4. Renew Season Tickets DONE!!!!!
Whohoo GO FINS 2011!!!
5. Go to post office Pending
6. Register Harley Pending
7. Go to South Florida Fair Pending

GO PHINS 2011 A New Start

They should have Nolan there too. They should open by saying that they have changed policy and are going to be more fan and media friendly. And in that spirit we have brought DC Nolan here to answer quistions since he put a great defense on the field. But they won't because there not that smart.

This is such a complete joke. What's the point of renewing my season tickets now? Of all the candidates; they selected the most unqualified, uncreative, & unfit OC in the league. Great, thanks for giving up on the season before it started.

I think a bit of both Armando. I think there's a need to calm some of the negativity from the media and fan base, so yes a bit of PR here. But I imagine a lot of the previous stuff was Parcells doing, so this signals a new beginning of sorts.

We have no choice at this point.

Let's hope they surprise us all and overperform next season.

Long shot i know.

WOW AM I GLAD WE BROUGHT IN SUCH AN EXPERIENCED AND TALENTED OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR TO HELP GAME PLAN FOR OUR OUR YOUNG, UNDER-PERFORMING QB. NOW THE SEASON IS ALMOST SET. ALL WE NEED NOW IS A COMPLETELY USELESS QB COACH TO REALLY SET US BACK. I SEE THE PLAN, LOSE MORE GAMES, IMPROVE OUR DRAFT POSITION SO WE CAN SCREW UP ANOTHER CHANCE AT GETTING A REAL QB (LUCK, STANFORD) WHEN HE COMES OUT NEXT YEAR - BRILLIANT

DOBALL WILL BE A GOOD COACH,THERE'S A REASON FOR BILLICHECK FOR PROMOTING HIM TO BE THE PATS WR COACH FROM 2002-2007 AND WINS 3 SB RINGS ,SOME THING DOLPHINS NEVER HEARED OFF .

Craig, getting back to your Chad Henne point - he was clearly never going to be a first round pick. Even if you can somehow make the point that he was - then fine - what I want them to do is try again, and again, and friggin again until they get it right.

Because every team NEEDS a top 15 QB in this league to be taken seriously.

This stance of yours to not want to draft a 1st round QB is a loser mentality - it's akin to playing the lottery and hoping for some QB to fall from the sky.

You keep talking about 1st round failures but I told you NUMEROUS times, there were 6 opportunities to draft a 1st round QB since marino retired and the Dolphins passed every time. 3 of them , hmmm, not so good - Claussen, Quinn, Losman. The other 3 though? FRIGGGIN OUTSTANDING! Ryan, Rodgers, Brees. Fact is we have one of those 3 and we are a contender year in year out. You don't think a QB makes the entire team better??? Let me ask you, what's your opinion of our OL? Atrocious right? Well, I would argue we have a better line than Pittsburgh or New Orleans. yet, nobody really make sa big stink about their lines because they have elite QB play.

GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD - WE NEED A TOP QB - UNTIL THAT HAPPENS, WE ARE SHITE!!!!

This is not a new beginning. It's same old crap with a backup QB. A declining running game. And a OC that sucks at his job. Lets put it all on the defense's shoulders crap. GRRRRRRRRRRRR

WE WILL SIGN ORTON OR VINCE YOUNG

THEN WE WILL DRAFT A QB AT OUR FIRST DRAFT PICK .

Interesting to say the least. I think it's more trying to distance themselves from Parcells ('hey, this mess ain't our fault') and some Ross influence too.

Now fo get us a speedy RB and WR and/or TE and we'll be on the right track. And for all of you Daboll naysayers..just remember less than a month ago he outschemed us enough to beat our team with a lot less talent.

Mark in Toronto -- Didn't we pass on Brees twice?

yea right!!! if we are lucky enough to get Luck he will do a Eli Manning start crying because he dont want to be with a loser. If hes smart he will stay far away from here.

I would say this move would be the last nail in sparanos coffin but our owner is too dumb to fire anyone. I see a possible 1-15 or worse next year we are right back to 2007 and it rimes with 2011. erie huh

Miami should've moved up to get Rodgers the year they drafted Brown. Brown and Rodgers would have been my picks. Instead we got Feely, Roth and Crowder. WTF?


Ok Dolphins fans you have to listen to Bernie Kosar about Brian Daboll its at http://www.wqam.com/ It's very interesting and promising if anyone knows about Cleveland It's Bernie

If this OC is like the selection of Davone Bess or Brian Hartline -not much known, but a nice surprise later- will be O.k. but if is like the selection of Patrick Turner mmm.....

Justin,
Daboll outshcemed us? The score was 13-10! We can't score points and this idiots offense was ranked 29th this year. Where in the world is the improvement? Then yo-yo's like Mando and other reporters won't ask serious questions at the presser like, ok. your the new O.C. and your offense was ranked 29th last year how in the world are you going to do this team any good, because they want to be invited to the free lunch afterward.

Is not Patrick Turner playing to win the AFC Championship game on Sunday

and the Dolphin are, ... oh, nevermind

Go Turner
Go Taylor

More Dolphin player blunders

HOME ALWAYS ON THE MONEY WHEN IT COMES TO FOOTBALL .

the last 2 drafts really made us fans cringe as the acorns were selected. how could we pass on clay matthews when we needed LB's and the draft where we took pat white and sean smith in the 2nd round,then pat turner in the 3rd. WASTED PICKS! ireland is relying on his dart board on draft day. I hope ross is making the org. more fan and media friendly;the secrecy about routine decisions led everyone to distrust the regime.

Home didn't the jets release Turner? I'm quite sure they did.

I don't understand the lvoe affair with Orton. I think we'd be better off giving uo that first rounder for Kolb. He has consistently shown himself to be pretty good when given the opportunities. Better than spending that first rounder on a rookie you know nothing about.

It's obvious a lot of you guys are completely clueless about this stuff.

You need the right PLAYERS to make things happen and there is virtually NOTHING a coach can do to overcome that.

Some of you idiots actually seem to believe there are wizard-like coaches with genius ideas and magic wands but the truth is they DON'T EXIST.

Want proof? Did Mike Martz suddenly forget how to run an offense and score points when he was the OC in Detroit and San Fran? Or do you think maybe his "genius" had names like Warner, Faulk, and Isaac Bruce?

I have no idea how Daboll will do but please stop advertising your lack of knowledge by claiming you do. All that those of you going strictly by the numbers are proving is that you know absolutely nothing about football.

Maybe it's a one time deal, if they would have done it at the damage control presser if they could have.

OK. I see that Turner was signed to the active squad Jan 12th. But who cares. They guy has been shipped from practice squad to a team for 2 weeks, cut. Signed to another practice squad. Then resigned. I don't see this as a huge error by the Phins.

Yay a presser

Belichick had 4 losing season in Cleveland.

Pete...You are so negative, go take a positive shower and stop calling people stupid. It makes you sound stupid. Pete amd repeat went to the man-hole bar....

J'ai vu Drew Carey sur The Price Is Right aujourd'hui et il était nu et rendre les gens jouer au "jeu du pénis"

Pete,
It's very nice of you to call everyone names! The fact is you are judged by numbers and most importantly wins and losses!

Geeeze Home.. Why don't you go inhale some of your imaginary chemtrail clouds of gas that will kill us all... Man you are a strange one...

Can we be any worse as an offense... The guy is young, had even less to work with in Cleveland than we do here (maybe that's why they were 31st?), and at least he isn't going to revert back to a 1970's 2TE's, 2 RB's, and 1 WR and never throw the ball more than 6 yards. He has a very good background, and I say let's give him a chance before we trash him. Well, Armando knows everything so he can question why but he thinks by being like Skip Bayless and eveytime Miami says black he say white that he is controversial. Repoorters seem to think that's the way they need to go today. I think the Fins ran fine before Armando ever came along...

Sorry, but the fact is a LOT of these people are clueless.

I call 'em as I see 'em.

Resign thigpen give him a chance sign Jocoby Jones few linemen family

Maybe Home and Pete can get together and home can smell pete's chemtrails

Deseo Armando nos dirá cuántas veces se defecó en Boston. Me gustaría saber cómo fueron sus experiencias defecar.

WE STILL TALKING ...THGPEN AND CHAD.P ? WE WILL NEVER BE WINNERS

Ok, the very fact that everyone seems to hate this hire (Mando included), gives me hope that things are gonna be fine. Henning was our biggest problem this season. Just maybe this guy, Daboll, can call a few more plays that coulda put us over the top in some games. Our OC lost at least two games for us last year. Plus, this guy is an up-and-comer according to most coaching pundits. He's known for getting the most out of a sorry offence and working with struggling QBs. Sounds like what we need to me. Someone who can take the system that's in place and tweak it a little to make it work. If he just once tries to take advantage of a mis-match on the field, he'll have done more than Henning ever did!

Hey Home...I will bet everything I have that all of your conspiracy theories are bunk...I just cannot believe that in our short lives on this earth that you are so worried about mythical chemtrail clouds that will kill people. And don't you think that we are tired of your antics...I'll answer that...yes we are. There are plenty of conspiracy websites out there that you can blog your nonsense on, please do it there because we don't give a hoot

Is this press conference going to be broadcast live? If so anyone got a link?

Tracy...again that Marshall "daball" thing yesterday was great, original, and funny as hell

I'm with MarK...If Henne is starting next year we're toast.

QB is THE MOST important position, PERIOD!

You have a great QB then everyone else looks brilliant.

Someone call 1-800-GET-A-QUARTERBACK

You're judged only by the numbers?

OK, then Bill Belichick was an idiot when he was 41-55 after his first six years as a coach, right?

No doubt you would have fired him. Obviously, the man couldn't coach.

Mike Martz was an offensive "genius" in St. Louis, right? So explain to me how the SAME Mike Martz couldn't do a damn thing in Detroit or San Fran. He must have simply FORGOTTEN how to coach offense, right? After all, it's about the NUMBERS.

Right?

Mark in Toronto @11:15....

You will go insane trying to make your point to Craig M.....

Nothing against the guy.....but once his mind is made up.....ITS MADE UP!!....there is no alternative way

cowkilla, what's up homie? I might be moving to Lk Mary

Yes the QB position is so important..we need a good one. As a long time fan I will be very upset if Henne is still their answer next year...
Some keep beating the dead horse and saying henning handcuffed Henne...BS, Henne doesn't have it, and if we have to suffer through another terrible year to get it through to the Henne supporters..well I'm all for it so we can finally but Henne to bed

Sup Marc, cool man, you looking to get into a house or are you doing the condo/apart thang?

Greg z. If they were secretive and winning thats different. but when you fail as miserably as this bunch you need to tell us why you were stupid. I would feel like we are all a team then instead of this me me me complex of this org

Mando...please find out if Daboll is just the OC, or if he will be the QB coach too. Thank you in advance...make sure you get that one in because I would like to know mang

DO you guys seriously NOT KNOW WHO PETE IS?

"pete" is making the same argument that he has made many times under a different name.....don't get so worked men......

LET DABOLL WORK AND WILL SEE. ANY WAY WHAT A DIFFERENCE IF WE KEEP, HENNE, SPARANO AND IRELAND. MAY BE THE PROBLEM ALL ALONG WAS "THE TUNA" WHOS IS ALREADY OVER THE HILL. EVERYTHING WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE DRAFT AND THE FA THAT WILL PICK.

MANOTOLETE

Who cares not one of the guys "calling the shots" will be here next season.

I think Pete is a fictitious cloud of chemtrail coming from Home's arse

Tracy474....I was in a boring meeting today and your post from yesterday about DABOLL leaped into my head.....I agree with Cow....outstanding and orginal.....

Warum Drew Carey Show seinen Penis an alle heute? Ich gucke nicht "The Price Is Right", um Drew Carey's Penis zu sehen!

Tracy474....I have to disagree with you about "tweaking" our system....

This system suck...to me....it hasn't worked in 10 years....it keeps young talent on the bench....and only lets vets play.....even when they don't ptoduce.....in 10 years we haven't had a offence ranked in the top 15 (points scored).....im not even gonna look it up....i'm just gonna say it.....and even if I am somehow wrong.....the offence has been boring and stale....we accepted that when Marino retired....we as fans figured it would take a few years to get it rolling again.....but 10 years later....and THIS.....

I don't want this system tweaked...I want it buried....like ryan did tho the 45-3 ball.....
