Dolphins complete coaching staff

The Miami Dolphins today named Blue Adams as assistant defensive backs coach, Charlie Bullen as defensive assistant, Ben Johnson as offensive assistant, Chris Mosley as assistant offensive line coach and also retained running backs coach Jeff Nixon, thus completing coach Joe Philbin’s staff for the upcoming season.

None of the new hires today were coaching in the NFL last year and only Mosely has experience coaching in the NFL at all. My favorite of today's new hires? Adams, of course. He graduated from Miami High in 1997. I graduated from Miami High in 1980.

Seriously, a quick glance at the Dolphins entire coaching staff suggests very little NFL experience is on staff. Eleven of the coaches are NFL rookie coaches in the jobs they are currently charged with doing with the Dolphins, including Philbin, who is a first-time NFL head coach.

LOL at Big Bambu, I used the large album sized paper a few times, though with no stick-um at the end the paper burned uneven, a real bummer at the time when it was 3 am in the morning.

Fin4Life @ 10:01....

I understand your points....and I see why you choose to look @ the staff the way you do.....

I...however.....choose to see the glass as half full....these are guys TARGETED by Philbin.....not last ditch attempts.....

Philbin has been doing this a while.....20+ years I believe......his coaching circle extends beyond LSU, AL, AU......and many other of th defacto schools.....

Philbin is thinking outside of the box....while @ the same time giving himself the opportunity to start his own coaching tree....

Philbin went secure on offense....with the proven Sherman....he went younger on D.....with the hungry Coyle.......another tenured position coach who was CHOMPING @THE BIT....for a promotion......

Sherman has already made it know that he wants to be a HC again....soon.....so unlike HENNING.....he will be ready to show the league what he is capable of...

Conversely....if Ben Johnson....wants the position in a year or 2 when Sherman leaves....he will need to be on his stuff.....it's a WIN-WIN......

Last thing Fin4Life......we need FUNDAMENTALS guys on our staff......that is a +.....not a minus...when is the last time we had a fundamentally sound football team......

Linebackers always taking bad angles...

DBs.....always out of position...or dropping the easy pick....

If these lesser know coaches get us back to the fundamentals....then I'm all for it....

Eeverything was invented in china except for computers and cars and airplanes and coca cola.

The Miami Dolphins are reportedly close to finalizing a deal with CFL standout Jerome Messam, whose signing would add depth in the team's thin backfield.

FIN4LIFE.....

My last question is this....

Who would you rather have and why.....

What would the Fin4Life staff look like.....

And if you can't hire all Div 1A coaches....would you just tell Mr. Ross that you can't do the job....then resign......

My point is....bashing this staff for ANY REASON..... at this stage in the games ludicrous......the next Belicheat or parcels may be on this staff....as much as people LOVE to bash Cam Cameron.....he has left us....and went to the PLAYOFFS every year since as part of the ravens staff.....so even if we have the nextCam Cameron hidden away.....and that would be fine too.....

WE ALL thought Parcells was bringing us chicken salad.....we NOW know it was chicken_______.........

Let's give these guys a shot.....maybe a year or two before we proclaim them omnipotent.....or incompetent......

Lets be real, a whole new coaching staff with very little nfl experience. They have to learn to work together still. On top of that a whole new offense and defense and what can we realistically expect in 2012? Not a winning season.

Eman, NO ONE expects a winning season from these scrubs. HAHA

Disagree Erman....

We did it in 08....

49ers did it this past season.....

Jets have done it he past few years.....

Don't be a defeatist man.....

Have expectations....we as fans should hold the FO accountable...

And before you ask....

Fans hold the FO accountable with their MONEY.....

The raiders and the bucs did it the year they met in the SB.....

I wonder if Philbin is forced to get rid of his Asst. DB coach will he say "You're my boy, Blue" in the press conference.

Armando.....you are still YET to congratulate Coach Philbin and his Staff....either thru this blog....or thru your colum.....

However....you have taken EVERY opportunity thru every media outlet available to you to beat the drum for Fisher....then tell us what losers the Dolphins are for not landing him.....

At every turn you tell the Sheep that Philbin Has little to no experience....you try and whip those that can no longer think for themselves in to a frenzy with you jaded opinions.....

I don't believe you can cut and paste on POSITIVE thing you have said about the Philbin hire......

Pathetic man.....nothing worse than a journalist with an imaginary ax to grind.....the ONLY thing PHILBIN did to you....was not be named fisher.....

9'ers did it in a crap division. we did it without Brady. The Raiders did it with the same staff, only oc promoted to coach, and bucs did it with Dungy's D. And those teams all went straight down the toilet after. Those were exceptions, rare at that. Also those teams had qb's, we don't and probably won't. Flynn is a joke. The best we can do is Moore and Henne would be a better back up that junk Losman.

I seriously doubt Philbo is going to bring Flynn here if he doesn't think he is a franchise QB, and my money says he doesn't think so.

I see now Fisher will have say over his new GM, a position they struggled to fill. I will take the unknown Philbin over Fisher. I think Jeff is going to fail.

I hate to tell you this Erman....

We play in a crap Division.....and we are part of the crap.....the AFC EAST=the NFC WEST....with the Pats wrapping up the division every year by nov.......

The Pats STILL WON 11games in 08...so it wasn't a gimme.....

What QBs did the have....

Rich Gannon
Brad Johnson
Alex smith
Mark Sanchez....since you didn't want to acknowledge the jets

E mail me when one of those get into Canton.....

Yes...it is rare....but it is possible.....and WE have done it....

Why would you present an argument for our failure any way......

You should be glad I can present some what recent examples of success....and draw from that.....

Kris, I believe in analyzing reality. You did not present much, you presented a couple of teams that had a one year flash and went straight down the toilet from there. That isn't enough to boost my confidence.

Email me when the Raiders Bucs and Jets get some new rings.

I did have a minute Chinese girl and when I introduced, it, she go,"chaiiiiichichangu", ay.

Not landing Fisher was the final nail in the Dolfins coffin.

Fisher = Pond scum. Let him stagnate elsewhere.

Erman.....

This conversation went nowhere fast.....

It's not my job to convince you of anything....I merely gave you some examples of TEAMS THAT TURNED IT AROUND IN ON YEAR...WITH A NEW STAFF....

That was after all...THE TOPIC OF THE CONVERSATION......

You don't like like those examples...that's fine....but it doesn't mean they didn't happen....

We were NOT talking about RINGS....

We were talking about NEW STAFFS....remember.....

Any way...Good Night to you Sir......

Kris

Your idea of turning it around is different than mine, and that's the difference. If you are happy with a one year flash and then down the toilet, so be it, but to me that is far from turning anything around. Your choice of words do not fit your argument.

Pleasant dreams.

Fisher is a hack. A bullet dodged.

Kris, are you drunk? Nowhere have I ever praised Fisher and I am glad he passed on us. Try to focus.

Those Southern Belles have nice assses.

E mail me when one of those get into Canton.....

Posted by: Kris | February 12, 2012 at 08:15 PM


Rings, Canton, same thing. The subject is 'turning it around'. To me that means more than one fluke season and back to the sewer.

Try sticking to your own arguments.

So many very healthy Women there, and...singing. Uff...

I wish some people were not allowed to vote.

Erman=Oscar.....

Look at the last few moronic post....

This dude stalks me like crack head looking for his next hit....

I wonder what you get out of having conversations with me Oscar.....

Do I satisfy some type of fetish you have.....

Kris see my post at 8:13 PM

Fin4life.....

I kind of blame you.....you talk to this moron all day for the last 2 days.....you only serve to encourage him....

Odin as well......

He is a VERIFIED....blog hit troll....

When will I learn......

Huh?? Kris you are drunk, or on something? Try to follow the thread without superimposing your imagination onto the conversation. I am not Oscar.

Your examples of turning it around were one year flash seasons by teams who went down the drain afterwards. So that is not my idea of turning anything around. It's yours.

Didn't know they cut the Latin Jazz category from the Grammies. A mistake.

Lol....

Ensure you paste 2 post in the same minute....

Well I guess you FOOLED US......

Whatever....

I'm out......

Enjoy talking to yourself.....

Hope to see some of the TRUE regulars tommrow.....

He is a VERIFIED....blog hit troll....

When will I learn......

Posted by: Kris | February 12, 2012 at 08:54 PM

VERIFIED, wow. By who? Dude you are a looney. Get some rest.

Getting very hard to watch, these Grammys....

Sheep run when frightened (confronted).

i want peyton!

I think nothing original has come out in Rock'Roll for the past 30-40 yrs.

Sofia Vergara=Hot.

The Dolphins last SB win was 40 years ago. Will the Dolphins win a SB in the next 40 years?

Never lose Hope. Look, Manningham and Cruz are music presenters now.

Never dug that Surfing stuff. Besides, I am afraid of Sharks.

Man, they look old like all hell(the Beach Boys). Do I look like that, too. God forbid!

Please, put some Women on. Yeah, I know, they outnumber Us....
