ESPN reports Daboll is the new OC, question is why?

I know what you are thinking: You are simply wondering why him?

If ESPN's report that Brian Daboll will be hired as Miami's new offensive coordinator (The Herald has not as of this writing been able to independently confirm this), then you're asking why coach Tony Sparano hired a coordinator whose team scored fewer points than the Dolphins broken offense in 2010.

The Dolphins also scored more points than Daboll's Browns in 2009.

I don't have an explanation for you at this time. I'm hoping to get an explanation at some point. It's a tough day for that as I'm flying back from Boston today so timing might be an issue.

In the meantime, I can tell you Daboll (35 years old) is younger than Dan Henning, whom he is replacing. And he is an enthusiastic sort as the video below shows.

Daboll's NFL experience is out of the Bill Belichick coaching tree. He was hired in 2000 by the Patriots as a defensive assistant. He became wide receivers coach in 2002. He left the Pats in 2006 to go with Eric Mangini to the Jets as their QB coach.

In 2009, Daboll again migrated with Mangini, this time to Cleveland where he served as offensive coordinator. Obviously, he was on the outs in Cleveland when Mangini was fired. And now he is apparently on the ins with the Dolphins.

APK in the house! That means you're either black or white trash ;)

NY, most depressing city HAS to be Detroit. I was there in the 90's, burned-out buildings (that were supposedly there from the 70's), hardly anyone around downtown, just pathetic.

DC,

Sparano and Ireland may have it FORCED on them to take a WR. I see this owner as someone who is going to get more involved since Parcells has left. I would think someone like Julio Jones would be a nice add but there may be other ways to skin a cat.

I'll also say, even though Sparano NEVER said things publicly that he does in fact place some of the blame on Henning. I don't believe Henning being let go was all Ross. I think Sparano sees things as they are and knew a change had to be made.

You can buy a house for 10K in Detroit. Hell, you can buy a whole city block for about $100k & be the biggest slum lord on the planet.

Jersey was a cess pool...Detroit can't be much worse than that place...

Tracy..Apopka has some nice areas, you can grab a house out there and actually get a nice chunk of land to go with it...good stuff

Craig, neither Sparano nor Ross let Henning go. Henning walked away. He knew what was gonna happen, he didn't even give them an option.

Key word is "was" Marc, Jersey is actually one of the nicer places to live, once you get out of north Jersey.

Guys I will agree with you about Detroit. Very sad and depressing. There are areas of Buffalo that are going the same way.

LoL @ Marc...thats a good one man about Apop...

Joe,

You're right but you get my point...

OK, guys I'm out....have fun!

I was just in Jersey 2 years ago! It was BAD! REAL BAD! I was near the airport...Queens-something-or another...Victoria, couldn't tell you, just know that it was a $h!thole!

NYfinfan...my family is from west chester and CT...I lived up there until I was about 7...been back many times...I gotta say FL is the best man...hmmmm shoveling snow or kicking it on the beach with some ladies and beers...not a difficult choice my friend

Actually, I still go to Mugshots and Cooter Browns occassionally, so, I get doses of the APK folks as well.

According to Money magazine, they rate the top 50 cities to live in the USA every year. NJ usually has a couple in the top 10 & many more in the top 50. If that's a cess pool, I'm all about it!

WHAT ABOUT THE GATES in every house and THE WINDO BARS IN ORLANDO ?

I have to agree with Marc... Red Bank was the only place in jersey that was worth visiting..the rest of it you can have...funny smell there too, not sure what it is...

Yep, Apopka was nice (my brother still lives there), but I joined the Navy as a kid to get out of there as soon as I could. Did 10 years then wound up in college in Alabama. Now, I live in Dothan, AL about 12 miles from the Florida line. I still go down to visit every now and then. But, it's not like it used to be down there.

Yeah, my subscription to "Money Magazine" expired, but, my eyesight still works, as does my sense of FEELING.

It's cold, and if it's not a cess pool, it's surrounded by them. I'll pass on NJ

That's in Crime Hills Aloco..not Orlando

I joined the Army, got out of Pine Hills, but, moved back to the "Greater area of Orlando", Maitland. Love it too much to leave, just didn't move back to the hood.

and UCF! One of the largest schools in the country. The ratio of women in Orlando suits my lifestyle. I love it here.

Shouldn't your handle be cowtippa, since you're close to Sanford? ;)

Tracy474....POST OF THIS LONG...LONG BLOG @ 1:37....

If you guys didn't read it its worth going back for.....

Actually Craig, I agree (almost) with you. IMO, Sparano came to see Henning as a liability. Meaning he didn't realize it at first. What was amazing to me was he was ready to go down with the ship 'protecting' him.

Same with Henne. He knew mid season Henne was killing any chance to win games.

Now do I pack heat when I go downtown and stuff, sure, but I've never been even close to using it. There are great places and shytty places anywhere you go..you have to find that place that you like and feel comfortable in...it's all good, we are all American's man! We should all be as one! Except for the peeps in crime hills lol

Enjoy yr sun & sand Cowkilla, i'll take 4 seasons lol

TOP 10 PLACES TO LIVE IN THE US BY FORBES AND MONEY MAGAZINE ;;;;;

1-EDAN PARIE..MIN
2-COLOMBIA...............MD


3-NEWTON............BOSTON........YOU SEE DONKEYS
4-MICKENNY......... TX

THERE'S NO FL ON THE LIST ,NO PLACE W/WINDOW BARS IN THE LIST

LoL @ Marc...naw I just eat steak about 3-4 times a week...so in my time I've killed a bunch of cows. I'm in suburbia man, no cows ova here

Well, if you lived in the top 15, you'd have checked out the magazine. That's how I learned of it. Pretty insightful. What are you a girl? It's cold? LOL

And for all you Apopka haters, it's a Seminole Indian word meaning "Big Potato!". That's why we used to call it the "tater patch!". Lol! Actually went to high school with John Anderson, the country music singer! And, I knew some of the Sapps down there (once they integrated the school system) but never met Warren.

It's all good NJ, we all like what we like, that's why we are all free to settle where we please

I dont hate Apk, but there is plenty to make fun of there

Aloco, the list changes year to year based on population. You can be in it 1 year and not the next.

Well I must depart, I got some thick NY Strips that I'm grilling for the friends today..have a good one wherever you might call home...later people !
NJ...btw, it's 74 degrees today in Orlando...no jackets required bro

CORAL SPRINGS...FL AT NUMBER 58..lol


MN HAS 6 SPOTS ON TTHE TOP 25
MA HAS 3 IN THE TOP 23

But you're eating a "NY" strip. Food for thought LOL

Aloco, I work with a guy from MN. He says it's awesome there.

JOE, I NOTICED MN AND BOSTON ALWAYS ON THE LIST EVERY YEAR ON THE TOP 10 ......

Cold places, go figure.

REMEMBER JOE, THAT LIST ALWAYS THE SAME IN TERMS OF EDUCATION AND QUILTY OF LIVE NOT ON WINDOW BARS AND CRIME .


MN AND BOSTON ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR BEING COLLAGE TOWNS ALSO .

Who makes these lists?

I'm a girl because I don't like shivering, chattering teeth, red noses and ears?

Screw that, the cold is MISERABLE!

I live in Germany for 3 years. That was enough cold for a lifetime.

New Yawker,

The winter atmosphere's so dark and depressing up there they had to write songs to cheer you glooms up. How else could they get youse out the house to buy Christmas presents.

Yeah, we here those Christmas wintry songs and it reminds us how fortunate we are that we dont have to be "CHEERED UP" just to go outside! LOL............

marc, it's 4 months out of the year. It's not Alaska or Canada. I'm not a huge fan of the cold either but it's nice to feel a chill in the air in the winter time.

As for the magazine, it's a list of the top places to live in the USA based on income, recreation, education, crime, weather, etc etc etc. It's a different list every year. My town came in the top #15 1 year, that's how I found out about it.

YOU GUYS TALK THAT WAY B/C YOU HAVE NO JOB,NO HOUSE AND NO THING TO PAY THE HEAT BILL .

Ever seen Chris Johnson and thought, dang, that's a thuggish NFL player? He's from Pine Hills, LOL

it's ONLY 4 months? That's 1/3rd of the year!

That's absurd man...

Sorry, you can keep it.

Being an optimist here -

5 and 11 in 2011
5 and 11 in 2011

JOE.

NEWTON IS 6 MINUTES FROM BOSTON , CAME AT NO 3 .THEY JUST FINISHED BUILDING THEIR HIGH SCHOOL 21 CENTURY SCHOOL W/EVERY THING AND IT COST 660 MILLION TO BUILD IT ,IT'S OUT OF THIS WORLD .

Miami native who spent most of my life there (and return frequently) but I relocated to the Northeast by choice nearly 10 years ago and have no desire whatsoever to ever live in Florida again fulltime.

Some of you guys go on and on about the winter here but it's just not as big a deal for a lot of folks, me included. And last I checked, it ISN'T winter 75% of the year and Spring and Fall are waaayyy nicer up here.

Sunshine? Uh, you might want to check the facts. Miami happens to be the rainiest big city in the country.

Love you Miami, but no thanks to ever living down there again!

WHY I FEEL SOMEONE IS TALKING TO HIMSELF???

I think being able to experience all 4 seasons is a good thing. Consider me absurd! lol

Another kick in the nuts for this organization.

dolfdan13, based on how Ross waffled at the end of the season, I think it's safe to say we have no nuts to have kicked.

What did I do in a past life to deserve the misery of being a Fin fan? At this point all we can do is laugh.

FORBES MAGAZINE RANKED MIAMI AS THE FATTEST CITY IN AMERICA. FUNNY HOW PERCEPTION AND REALITY ARE SO DIFFERENT.

onion rings = ALoco

Chicago is only the 21st windiest city. Perception & reality are certainly skewed at times.

fries + onion rings = Aloco.

Do people not have jobs? Or so bored that with no worthwhile football to speak of they still hang out on a blog all day long chatting climate?

I wonder why is it taking so long to formally announce the Brian Dauboll signing?
