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.

Anyone else watching Al Davis on NFL Network? Holy cow, he looks and sounds 500 years old and is giving a rambling speech that makes zero sense. He just compared Jason Campbell to John Elway and Bret Favre. Oy vey!

One thing I can say about my city is that it is definitely the baskin Robbins of women - 37 flavours. No matter what you like its all here. I think I heard that there are over 1000 languages spoken in this city. Didn;t even know there were 1,000 languages.

DC HAS A POINT ON PIZZA ,STILL I RATHER COOK IT MYSELF.

I love NY style pizza. They have tried to make it down here(in Miami), but recent arrivals to this community prefer thick dough(I don't blame them, lots of calories).

No red meat? I'd rather be dead!

How can pizza not be good anywhere outside of the NY / NJ area? I never understood how it can vary & be so bad across the country.

dr roberts--

and our owner compares Henne to Marino, and claims Tony Sparano is gonna create a wide-open offense.

so what's the diff, except for about 137 years & a silver track suit.

Oh, the Cheez Wiz stuff is ridiculous, agreed. It's really more of a tourist thing, though, concentrated at Pat's and Geno's (both of which are awful). The good Philly steak joints don't even offer it.

The REAL Philly sandwich is juicy, garlicky pork loin on a crunchy Italian roll with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. Drool!

Instead of working, I've been pondering this move for an hour and I don't get it. I - JUST - DON'T - GET - IT. Daboll is virtually Dan Henning 2.0. Is this Sparano's interpretation of Ross's mandate for an aggressive offense?

More importantly, I still don't understand the rush to find a new OC. Why haven't they looked at the Pats, GB or Atlanta's QB coaches? Help me understand here, Sparano!

Perhaps they've had their eyes of Daboll for a while now - and that's why they wanted to talk to Mangina.

THE BEST PIZZA YOU MAKE AT HOME;;;


1-YOU BUY THE DOUGH FROM BERTTUCCI
2- YOU ROLLED IT AND PUT SOME CORN MEAL ON THE METAL SHEET
3-ADD RAW TOMAOTO HEAVY JUICE AND SPRINKLE KOSHER SALT,B,PEPER AND X.V.OLIVE OIL AND PLACE ON THE OVEN FLOOR AT 350 UNTIL CRISP ON THE BOTTOM
4-WHEN IT'S CRISP YOU TAKE IT OUT AND TURN OVEN TO 425
5-ADD PARM,ORAGANO,FRESH MOAAZERALLA AND ANCHOVI .

6- PUT IT BACK ON FIRST SHELF INSIDE THE OVEN UNTIL COOKED
7-TAKE IT OUT ,ADD X.V.OIL AN RED CRUSHED PEPPER .

I'm growing more convinced that Daboll was the only one willing to come here. With Sparano and Ireland around, no winning coach would want to come here.

Thank the Almighty that Nolan is still sticking around. Perhaps he's eyeing the HC position once Sparano gets canned. Smart move, Nolan.

Joe, but every year at the doctor I get a clean bill of health, and to a guy with a family history of heart disease (of the Dick Cheney variety), that's VERY good news!

It's not that the pizza outside the area isn't good per say, it's different. Not that authentic slice. They do the Chicago style or the California healthy kind, that's ok, but it's just not the same. Not like you got it from a guy named Vinnie, wearing a white, green and red t-shirt, offering a "fuggetaboutit" after you say thanks.

LA, they won't be able to rebuild the O side of the ball to the extent that they'll be able to run a completely different offense. The offense has to match your talent. You can't run an O your talent doesn't allow you to.

With that said, they went with a guy who may open up a bit more but still stick to what it is Sparano wants to do. I said it earlier this season, losing Henning means nothing with Sparano still here. They both had to go. Sparano sets the vision for the offense, the OC just implements and executes it.

When I went to visit my son a few years ago where he was working in Philadelphia he took me to some very strange Asian restaurant where, by the way, the waitress was very attentive to me. But I did not have the guts to tell him I only wanted a Philly cheesesteak. I missed it.

ALoco is a real chef, seriously. KOSHER SALT! Only the pro's use that. I like your style ALoco.

Reminds me of Pasta Puttenesca (with the anchoives). YUM!

The military has used out Ionospheric heater to trigger, yet another earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.4 struck Wednesday morning in southwestern Pakistan, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

Not excited by the Daboll hire but willing to give him a shot. He actually has pretty good NFL lineage for a guy his age despite struggling last year in Cleveland.

I don't get too tied up with the numbers. That stuff is almost entirely dependant on the talent available rather than any kind of 'amazing' coaching schemes.

Look at a guy like Mike Martz. Offensive "genius" in St. Louis, right? But he couldn't do squat with the Lions or 49ers as their OC. You need the players, there aren't any magic wands. Daboll didn't have a ton to work with in Cleveland. I'll wait to pass judgement on him in Miami.

Having lived near the Canadian boarder for over 30 years I must say the four seasons are overrated. There's the raking and burning leaves season, rototilling the garden and flooding season, shoveling snow and scraping ice season and the good season. Yuck, been there done that.

I hear ya DC. I have ridiculous cholesterol & I'm in my 30's. To counter it, I went on Crestor, 2% milk & I can't believe it's not butter. LOL I won't skip the red meat.

Chicago style pizza is good every now & then but in now way can replicate the Vinnie pizza with the "fuggetaboutit" Cali style pizza, yuck!

Coming back to women and with exceptions, I believe this is the only country in the world where you smile and say something to a woman(or women) and they don't give you easy entrance into their lives.

If they allow the 18 game regular season they better allow an expansion from 53 to 57 active players.

Joe, try Olivio (instead of the butter). Much healthier (it's made from olive oil, but you won't be able to taste a difference), and Lee Iacocca (remember him) founded the company. It's the way to go.

Yeah, I never drank anything but skim milk, so even 2% tastes funny to me. Never had sugar cereals or soda in my home growing up, hardly ever went to McDonald's. I don't think I've been there in 20 years.

Nope, no red meat, no pork. Chicken and fish, that's it! Not trying to die at 40, seen that happen to people close to me, not a good look at all.

This comment board now has as many blatherings regarding residency, as its intended forum, the Dolphins. I'm surprised somebody hasn't expressed their living accomadations amid the International Space Station.

"The view is spectacular, and we got the mother-load of tang breakfast drink onboard. The crime rate is zero."

Get back to your girly girl gossip!

Gotta get back to the fishing hole...

On the Bright side: It will be hard to do worse than Henning.

Realistically, I don't know who comes in here with Sparano basically getting a 1 year "Show Me" something or you're Fired Extension (Ross will eat the 2nd year). We were destined for the B or C teamers when Ross went fishing for Harbaugh and didn't go all out for Cower.

I'm a life long fan but this has all the earmarks of a bad move unless they strike gold in the Draft & FA.

THE MORE YOU PUT ON THE PIZZA IS THE WORST.IT BECOMES DOG FOOD. TWO ITEMS ONLY


1-EGGPLANT AND FRESH MOZZARELAA
2-PROSCUITTO AND AURGLA AND MOZZ
3-SPICY SAUSAGE AND BROCCOLI RABI AND MOZZ
4-ANCHOVI AND MOZZ
5-FRIED CICED ZUCCHINI AND MOZZ
6- ROSMARY FRIED POTATOES AND MOZZ

Gulf, that's cause there's no news today (and we've talked about all the other topics ad nauseum). When you see a page past 10, you know people aren't saying anything new.

Come back whenever Mando chooses to post a new blog, then we'll talk about our girlie Dolphins.

DC IS RIGHT 2 PERCENT DOES TASTE LIKE WHOLE MILK AND OLIVO IS THE WAY TO GO INSTEAD OF BUTTER.


RED MEAT IS THE WORST MEAT TO EAT.........FISH ,IT HAS TO SAY (( WILD CAUGHT )) NOT FARM RAISED W/POISON FROM VITENAM

OK, DC

But there is new news posted today regarding the contract for Daboll as our new OC. Guess Mando wants to wait for more info before writing a new blog.

Gotta get back to the boat, fishing...

If you people think 2% tastes anything like MILK, or that anything other than BUTTER tastes like butter, you seriously have no right judging food at all

And I'd rather be dead at 40 than live without pork or red meat...

Healthty alternative foods are like a BJ with a condom on...unsatisfying, even if the end result is the same

Hello, I am Harold, a talking Vietnamese mule who will have his own children's show on CBS this fall.

I take great offense at the comment about "poison from Vietnam." Our fish is very wholesome and tasty and a welcome addition to today's modern, gracious lifestyles.

As a Vietnamese mule, I demand an apology from this uneducated person!

The Wildcat lives on with Sparano and Daboll.

Muchas gracias Harold la mula vietnamita. También me gusta delicioso pescado de Vietnam y nunca han encontrado que es llena de veneno!

La ringrazio molto Harold il mulo vietnamita. Mi piace anche di pesce provenienti dal Vietnam e non hanno mai trovato ad essere pieno di veleno. La persona che ha scritto che è un imbecille!

they better draft a qb or trade for one or pick one up in fa, all this talk about henne getting a fresh start is making me sick!

Большое спасибо Гарольд Harold the Vietnamese Mule вьетнамского мула. Я также насладиться вкусной рыбы из Вьетнама и никогда не нашел, что это полный яда. Человек, который писал, что это идиот!

Tusen takk Harald vietnamesiske muldyr. Jeg også nyte deilig fisk fra Vietnam og har aldri funnet det å være full av gift. "ALoco" som skrev det er en imbecile!

Tôi yêu Harold các Mule Việt Nam! Không có chất độc trong cá của chúng tôi như thế này ngu ngốc "ALoco" nói! Chúng ta có cá tốt luôn! Số một Việt Nam! Mỹ mười số!!

PORK is the only animal who doesn't feel jealous for his female ,the more you eat pork the more you become like him .look at germany ,holand and belgium ,they switich wives b/c they eat a lot of pork .

------------------

Can I have some of whatever it is you're smoking? Hoo boy...

i agree with aloca ,pork is dirty animal.

So, it's been determined that rabbits, snails, iguanas, parakeets, voles, wombats, barracudas, etc. all feel "jealous" for their females and pigs don't?

Fascinating, Dr. ALoco, fascinating.

Shouldn't that tinfoil hat, "chemtrail" nut be here to verify this thesis?

yes,pete...can another dog go near a female dog with her guy w/her ..no


it has been proven among the group sex people in europe that al of them eat pork more than any other meat .

The ONLY reason I can think of is that we are trying to get the #1 pick next year to get Andrew Luck. Maybe that will also get Sparano fired and we can hire a REAL coach like Bill Cowher!!!!!!!!!!!

" Bacon tastes good...Pork chops taste good!"
Vincent Vega

ALoco, I'm learning a lot tonight. I didn't know dogs got jealous about their girlfriends. Do they get married in little doggy churches?

I also didn't know that if you eat pork, it leads to wife swapping.

Must be that Florida education I got.

Ross wants to move Phins to L.A. Only explanation for running team into the ground.

Can't wait for the BS...I mean TS spin on this hire. Imagine how Tony's going to spin this.

Random: Is Will Smith a "great actor"?

Yes Marc, we all hope your dead before 40, no big loss really.

Sully...just stop with the team moving thing..there is no way the Fins would move out of miami. It wouldn't happen to a storied franchise like the dolphins

Daboll was hired to coach our lock out replacement offense. They are going to kick some serious ass!

Marc dead before 40? One can only hope

Does anyone on here have an inside connection to Ross and company?

If so, would you please pass along that on behalf of all the Dolphin fans.. WE have a message for him..

YOU HAVE ZERO CLUE HOW TO RUN AN NFL FOOTBALL TEAM. SELL THE TEAM BACK TO AN OWNER WHO FULLY UNDERSTANDS AND CAN IDENTIFY HOW MUCH OF A LOSER THAT COACH SPARANIO IS.

Just look at who was hired as CO and if that does not tell a story on the idiot GM and Sparano and Ross.. Nothing will.

HIRE COWHER NOW.

COWHER
COWHER
COWHER
COWHER
COWHER

and the hits just keep on coming.

only good news in all of this is that 2012 is right around the corner.

OK Guys, a rather interesting night on the old blog......

yeah nfl def wont play more than 8 games this year. march 1 it all begins

Bill,8 games???, Fins might be able to win at least one...

rather go 0-8 and draft luck
