Reason Mularkey won't interview with Dolphins

Mike Mularkey has been named the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The coach interviewed with the Jaguars Tuesday and was scheduled to interview with the Dolphins at some point this week -- probably starting Wednesday and leaking into Thursday -- but his representative has contacted the Dolphins and told them Mularkey won't make it to the interview.

He's got a new gig in Jacksonville, beating out Carolina offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, interim coach Mel Tucker and Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, all of whom interviewed for the job.

Mularkey, a Fort Lauderdale native, was on the Dolphins radar based on his work as the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator the past four years. It was interesting that he was on the radar at all because the Dolphins fired Mularkey as their tight end coach in January of 2008.

Dolphins general mananger Jeff Ireland and then football czar Bill Parcells made that decision. And Ireland was key in getting Mularkey scheduled to meet with the Dolphins.

Mularkey was considered a strong candidate in case leading candidate Jeff Fisher did not accept the Miami job. Fisher has not yet made a decision.

Can I be honest, here? I'm glad Mularkey is going to Jacksonville. While I recognize the Dolphins valued his work in Atlanta, and liked the fact he had head coach experience in Buffalo, the truth is he seemed underwhelming to me as a candidate.

Mularkey will likely be solid, and consistent and all that. But if his history is an indicator, he'll also be bland and unspectacular. Yes, he'll work hard. But getting to the playoffs and winning in the postseason requires more than than hard work.

Mularkey had a very talented offense in Atlanta. They scored a lot of points in the regular-season. But the Falcons have been 0-3 in the postseason under Mike Smith with Mularkey as the offensive coordinator.

Last weekend against the Giants, the Falcons offense was shut out. And as I have written previously, during Mularkey's two-year stint in Miami -- the first of which in 2006 he served as the offensive coordinator -- the Dolphins were unsuccessful on offense. Miami averaged only 16.3 points per game in 2006 under Mularkey.

Regardless, I wish coach the best. If he is given excellent talent, he will likely develop that talent into successful regular-season records. Will that translate beyond the regular-season?

He now gets to prove whether it does or does not.

Best thing I heard in awhile

To say he cost three picks assumes we could have had him for no picks. Not true, and you know it.

Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh! And Monkeys might fly out my anus too-ROTFLMAO!

You have every right to be on the confused and confounded side.

The facts are the facts brother.

This is not open for philosophical interpretations jack wad, it's HISTORICAL FACT for christ sake-LOL!

3 picks! Case CLOSED - Conversation OVER!

I suspect there's a dumb fvcking Moron among us!
-----------------------------------------------
Let me put it in terms you can understand. You have 3 shots of 8 year old scotch in front of you. You trade your 3 shots for one shot of 12 year old scotch.
How many shots did it cost you?
-----------------------------------------------
JackWad, you just said it YOURSELF. Unless you to mentally fvcking retarded to even understand your own line of reasoning. IT WOULD COST THREE SHOTS! Same as what it cost us to draft THOMAS!
What are you? Some kind of inbred cretin? ROTFLMAO!
-----------------------------------------------

You had three low end shots, now you have 1 higher end shot.
Figure it out when you are sober.

Let me try to put in terms that a guys whose real Dad is his Mom's Uncle!
If you have a Cadillac(the Deluxe Thomas model)and you give *3* **THREE**(I don't how many ways I can spell it out for you)If you give 3 thousand dollars for it, how much did it cost?
Let me guess, because you get the Caddilac it means you didn't **REALLY** pay 3 thousand?
Bullshyt dickwad! You would have paid 3 thousand, just like we paid 3 picks for Thomas!
How fvcking dumb can you be?

Even a clam is smarter than some bloggers here.

odin

If you trade 3 players for 1 player, that is a net loss of how many?

Are you ALWAYS drunk as a skunk?

le peu, this is just a matter of semantics. there is a difference between cost and net gain. which is being discussed here?

I got me 3 shots of cheap booze.
I trade 3 shots of cheap sheet for 1 shot of good sheet.
I had 3, now me gots 1. How much did I lose?
6?
7?
3?
2!!!!
Posted by: Clam | January 10, 2012 at 10:00 PM

I'll bet your mom wished she coulda scraped up the money for that abortion. You ain't no smarter than an afterbirth!

We weren't trading "Shots for Shots".

How is it this is 3 - 1 bullshyt?

We had 3 picks. We used them to pick Thomas. That's minus 3 picks period. We didn't end up with a pick. We ended up with Thomas TARDO!

Ask you neighbors to show you how to do some math.

We had 5 picks left. We used 3 on Thomas.

5 - 3 = 2

When we drafted Thomas, 3 picks were subtracted from our total-Duuuuuuuuuh!

Let me guess, you're a Chud Fan?

Bhwaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

It's a draft IDIOT

Do you expect to get a player for FREE????

The normal price is 1 pick. We added 2 more. 2. And, for a better position.


Now go sniff your daddies doodah!

Hey dumbFvck, when did we trade 3 players for one player?

Are you always an inbred a...............

You have to change the facts to try an justify your retardation?

Wouldn't it be easier to just admit your wrong?

ROTFLMAO!

"Case CLOSED - Conversation OVER! "

Then a followup drunken rant, perpetuating the same 'conversation', that was ceremoniously 'closed'.

Arguing with himself. Next will it be windmills, Odinseye er, Quixote?

Searh this did Ireland sleep with your sister or something? The dolphins have talent and Ireland has brought all of the pro bowlers we have here. I do think he can do a better job of drafting a superstar or pro bowler but the guy hasnt had a top ten pick other than Jake Long who has made the pro bowl every year. The dolphins are always middle of the pack pick wise where its hard to find superstars or franchise qbs. Sure he has had some stupid picks but what gm hasnt? Your talking about continuity and you want to fire the gm which will change everything!

Posted by: Slam | January 10, 2012 at 05:00 PM

I don't have a sister. Ireland & his pals continue to ruin this once proud franchise. Sister not required in this case.

7-9, 7-9 & 6-10...that continuity? Yea! Shoot me for wanting to continually be ABOVE .500%

Other teams have mid 1st round picks & find probowlers. Hell, even 2-7th round probowlers! Unless we have the #1 overall, forget it!

Look at NE as 1 example. Mayo(between 5-10), Gronk(2nd round), Mccourty(very late 1st), even a special teamer was a 6-7th round pick!

Go to wikipedia & see for yourself other gm's success compared to ours. Compared to other GM's, of SUCCESFUL TEAMS, Ireland sucks. Hindisght proves it. Thats the beauty of it. It proves who finds the talent & who doesn't.

The first step in your recovery process is to stop making excuses for the sh*tty GM the Dolphins have. Until then, enjoy your continuity.

Trade 1 for 1, price? 1.

Trade 3 for 1, price? 6? 9? 24? 2? BINGOOOOO

31 =5
2+2=7?
3-1=3?

LePeu,

Let me put it in terms you can understand.

You have little underaged orphan boys for sale in Thailand(your kind of Draft).

The going price in one dollar(a pick).

You reach into your stack of dollars(picks)and you take out the 3rd dollar, the 5th Dollar and the 7th dollar(3 picks)and pay for your little underaged orphan boy.

How many Dollars(picks) did you pay for your Boom-Boom, Suck-suck?

Steve, I thought I was arguing again with another poster. Oh wait, unless you mean YOU, Clam and LePeu are all one and the same? Oh well, in that case your last post makes sense.

Enjoy your gay little Boom-Boom, Suck-Suck ;)

Parcells made ALL of the decisions in the first 3 years, so give Ireland a break on those

However, I hold Ireland accountable for the Daniel Thomas pick as Arian Foster proves that a RB can be had anywhere, even as an UNDRAFTED FA as he was......just build a very good OL like the TEXANS and bring in a "big-time" WR like ANdre Johnson

NEVER EVER trade up for a RB in the CURRENT NFL, unless he's Adrian peterson or Barry Sanders

It's a passing league, my friends

You're arguing over 1st grade level math.

Miami traded 3 draft picks & received 1. Net loss of 2.

Why even Bother with Mularkey....I am sure Jags Fans will buy Tix for him....NOT...

Armando,

Please delete my my posts above.

I don't want anyone to know I was even TRYING to talk to anyone this fvcking stupid!

Thanks in advance Armando ;)

The Jags picked Mularkey over Chudzinski??!! LMAO. Welcome to a world of mediocrity and stupid play calling for the next few years Jags.

"Parcells made ALL of the decisions in the first 3 years, so give Ireland a break on those"

False. Ireland ran the last 2 drafts. The 2010 draft was his dress rehearsal. Then Tuna walked away before the season.

BINGO! simple.

Leave it to odincock to make an analogy with thai boys. Thats where his mind hangs out...yuck!

Now he wants his posts deleted because it's revealed he can't do simple mathmateics! hahaha

Search This,

We had 5 picks left......TOTAL........5..........PERIOD.

After we drated Thomas, we had 2 picks left. Only two my little friend.

I know it's not Rocket Science, but if we had 5 and we ended up with 2, how many picks did it cost to get Thomas?

HINT: We had 5, after drafting Thomas we had Two left!

Are you smarter than a 1st grader?

The question isn't about net loss. My statement was Thomas cost us 3 picks. That's the statement they're disputing.

Come on 5 - 2 ?

You can do it?

the pick to take him doesn't count, its a given you can't pick him for no pick!

Get your mind off thai boy peckers and you will get it. what a faghag.

odin, everyone else used apples, why did you use thai boys?

please explain.

----not sure about that one......I'm under the impression that Odrick, Misi, etc., (the 2010 Draft) was Parcells' last draft with Jeffey I. in the background riding the coat-tails.

odin, everyone else used apples, why did you use thai boys?

please explain.

Great news Armando, This way Ross does not have the opportunity to make a mistake on Mularkey. He is not what Miami needs. Miami needs a Rob Chudzinski type of HC. An offensive innovator with consistant success.

Armando explained it already, Parcells did the 1st and 3rd, Ireland 2nd and 4th

Why is odin thinking about thai boys?

Most guys I know think about thai girls. Odin? Nope. Thai boys.

Yuck. Sick.

Sissy Krissy, at it again??? Why????

Argghhhhh

WOW LOL OK

By your logic, the answer would be 4. Cost! We gave away 3 & used the one we got. That's 4, not 3. You're not even correctly calculating your incorrect calculation method. WOWSA! Now, you really stuck your feet in the doo doo.

In your world the "actual" cost is 4. In the real world, the cost is 2. Every person who reads your posts in this thread will be dumber than before they read it.

Maybe Armando can't put a Warning Update in the blog title!

Posted by: Le Peu | January 10, 2012 at 10:56 PM

ROTFLMAO! How can the pick we used on him not count Einstein?

If we didn't use that pick on Thomas, couldn't we have used it on someone else?

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuh-ROTFLMAO!

Of course the pick we used on him counted. We.....wait for it.......wait fot it.........we SPENT IT ON HIM DIDN"T WE?

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa!

What a bunch of retarded fvcking dolts-ROTFLMAO!

We had 5 picks-Duh!

We drafted Thomas-Right-A-Rooney!

We had 2 left-Dooh!

5 minus 2 = 3 Heh, heh, heh!

It don't get no simpler din dat Jethro ;)

Posted by: Le Peu | January 10, 2012 at 10:58 PM

Just wanted to make sure I'd could get your attention.

Your Welcome ;)

Thai boys are TIGHT!

Valhalla! :P

Jesus H. Christ no wonder there aren't any coaches who want to come to Miami.... Just read this page and the "Winners" who commented on it and if you were a coaching candidate on the way here for an interview you'd put a gun to the pilots head and tell him to "Turn around and take me home"....

I think I have FINALLY been convinced that there is a reason people believe in being "Pro Choice"....

Unfortunately… No one wants to come to this train wreck!

Odin,

So you can understand.

You have a free pick of which thai boy you can blow.

The thai boy you want though costs two more picks, 5 an 7.

So you give the 5 and 7 (how many picks is that?) and get on your knees to blow the little thai boy.

Got it?

By your logic, the answer would be 4. Cost! We gave away 3 & used the one we got. That's 4, not 3. You're not even correctly calculating your incorrect calculation method. WOWSA! Now, you really stuck your feet in the doo doo.

OMFG! I can't believe this guy is proving to EVERYONE EXACTLY how fvcking stupid he really is-ROTFLMAO!

The 4th one is the one that doesn't count you freaking idiot-LMFAO!

You just made my night, I'm toasting your ignorance-CHEERS!

Bottom Line: 5 picks left. We draft Thomas. 2 picks left.

5 - 2 = 3 !

Dispute that math Einstein! Don't spin it or switch it around. Just dipute these facts or Puh-LEASE: STFU!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

3 picks for a backup RB was absurd.

Le Pe-yew went OFF on the little Thai Boys!

Your true colors are showing ;)

Once that was out there he couldn't break away. He just kept posting it and posting it and..............

Did Ireland ask Fisher if his momma's a hooka?

odin

A good dental floss will get those pubic hairs out of your teeth.

Mularkey didnt even bother interviewing with the hapless Fins. He knows Ross and Ireland are idiots. Will Tony Sparano take the fins back?? LMAO

Wouldn't it be easier and more tasteful to just admit how WRONG YOU REALLY ARE!

OK, forget the tasteful, I know the only thing you have a taste for ;)

5 - 3 = 2

Dooh!!!!

"Mularkey will likely be solid, and consistent and all that. But if his history is an indicator, he'll also be bland and unspectacular. Yes, he'll work hard. But getting to the playoffs and winning in the postseason requires more than than hard work."

That's what we got from Tony!

Best news I've heard since Sparano got canned!!!!
I had visions of the fins offering Mularkey the job if/when Fisher turns us down.
Thank god that can't happen now, still confident Fisher may still come here the longer his decision takes, but Carmichael or Chudz would be my fave after that and they haven't been interviewed.........yet!!!!
I perrsonally think the fins are waiting to hear from Fisher now before contacting those two, the rest weve contacted are just fodder apart from Philbin, like him too but thats a huge loss he's just suffered, wouldn't blame him for taking time out.

Speaking of Curly, Moe, & Larry....

Schottenheimer just left the Jets, their Assistant Head Coach and O line coach went to Dallas earlier today, its a virtual certainty Sparano is joining the Jets!!!!!!!
Beating the Jets is about to get alot easier!!!

Breaking News:

SPARANO TO BECOME JETS OC IN 2012

Good for you Tony. Good for you.

At least we have somewhere to send all the Dallas castoffs now ;)

Lets see if he can convince Fatboy Rex to trafe a 2nd for Moore!!

I am glad that Mularkey won't be joining the Dolphins. I did not like the fact that they were considering him in the first place. Let's wait for word on Fisher and go from there. I am still holding out a small hope that they will contact Billick. At least they will be branching out of their comfort zone if they do.

WTF is wrong with Jeff Fisher?

I'm starting to think Kris just might be onto something with the Drama Queen allegations.

Shefter has reported that as of today, Fisher hasn't even talked money/contracts with either Miami nor St. Louis!

Jesus Christ, Tony SpOrano already has a nice new job!

WTF Jeff?

Besides Fisher, all the other hc candidates that have been interviewed are all underwhelming...we need to hire a coach that has previous NFL head coaching experience that has YET to win a superbowl.
