Bill Lazor: Assistants, offense to be determined

Bill Lazor is excited. He's eager to get to work as the Dolphins new offensive coordinator. Although he has known coach Joe Philbin only casually he says, "he's a winner ... the work coach has done is lay the foundation."

Indeed Lazor says the reason he took the job with the Dolphins was "about coach Philbin himself."

"It's about people," he said today. "It's about trusting the person you're working for and working with. You want to be around people with character and who are committed in doing things the right way. I want to be around football people, which is what coach Philbin is ..."

Lazor was vague about several topics. He declined to comment whether he was indeed on his way to Detroit as was reported Tuesday by ESPN. More importantly he couldn't give specifics about what type of offense the Dolphins would run -- although it's believed it will be mostly a West Coast attack with other elements of other schemes peppered in as well.

"The clearest way to say it and it's probably disappointing is this will be the Miami Dolphins offense," Lazor said. "The one factor in how we do it, specifically how it works is the ability of the players we have. I've done a little bit of research ... but I haven't done nearly enough to be able to answer that question."

Lazor said he is not certain if he'll be able to bring coaches he's familiar with to the Dolphins.

"Coach Philbin is charge of the structure of the staff and he and I have not had all our conversations about the structure of the staff. What I do know, and I did my research, is I know we have good coaches on the staff and they have great reputations. I'm excited to get to know them and that's something that will be handled going forward."

(So Philbin and Lazor interviewed and they didn't talk about offensive assistants? The offensive line gave up a franchise record 58 sacks and the OL coach was not discussed?)

Lazor, the Eagles QB coach in 2013, did not call plays for the Eagles. He confirmed he will call the plays for the Dolphins.

Before the 2013, former offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill would be the most improved second-year quarterback in the NFL. He wasn't. The most improved second-year QB in the NFL was Nick Foles in Philadelphia.

The quarterback Lazor coached.

So what does Lazor think of Tannehill?

"I see a lot of ability. Physical ability. The ability to play the game," Lazor said. "It would be premature to say what he can do and what he can't do because I haven't been around him much. But I think there's a nucleus here in a lot of way with the staff and the talent I've seen so far to work with these players."

Most Cubans wind up morbidly obese and do not practice great dental hygiene.

Goodnight folks, GM coming soon I can feel it.

Oscar, he comes from an immature society where even adults are offended by any kind of name calling or suggestion they are not certain of.

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

Apparently you have never heard 2 Dominican people talk. We call each other every name in the book and don't get offended. Ask Oscar. He isn't Domincan but I bet they have even called him a couple names just out of endearment. Everything from Loco to Doctor. And every Animal name in the jungle. Tigre, Leon, Caballo, etc.

But Sure!! You know everything about Dominicans. GTFOH!!

You just need to have an opinion about everything. Even if you don't know squat on the subject.


Yeah that's right im on every conceivable sports blog in the world.

You are even DUMBER that we all thought you were. You couldn't possibly be on all the other blogs because you are on this blog 18hrs a day 7 day a week.
The point I was making is that EVERY team has there very own Marco IDIOT on their blog after a loss. They spout the same exact BS about players as you do about TH.

Answer me this Marco:
When have you EVER played organized sports above HS level?
When have you EVER broken down tape of a NFL game or any other football game?
When have you EVER coached at any level above HS?
Have you devised and written a playbook for football?
Have you EVER even seen a football playbook?
Do you KNOW the blocking schemes?
Do you know the WR routes?

THATS WHAT I THOUGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shula endorsed Sporano and Cam Shameron.

Next !!!

Deity set them up and I'll knock em out the park.... there's another Thillbin Ball.

I believe the reason why reputable guys don't want to come to Miami is because they see this as a very disorganized franchise. There are too many major areas that need fixing. There are no pro-bowlers, no true consistent playmakers, and a QB that is far from being this franchise's QB. The defense is a mess, and cap money is limited due to guaranteed contracts. Everyone knows the Miami Dolphins are far from being a competitive team amongst the elite teams of the league. And one of the major issues hurting the team is that the owner and his subordinates, are set firmly in their ways as far as thinking outside the box. So far, I really am not impressed with the changes. Philbin stiill the HC and now a new OC who has never called plays in the NFL. Here we go gain, just got laugh and go with it.

When daShe says "I'm Out', we still see him blogging on. He isn't really out. He is still here pretending he is out. As we've seen.

Dashi.

Learn to pay attention and comprehend. Two domincans can talk that way with each other because they spent a lot of time neddid together in high school locker rooms where they learn the majority of their vocabulary. But name calling offends them when it is a non DR slug, and they call others names as though they won some stupid name calling contest LOL.

I understand that the incoming coach(s) have to be polite and upbeat. But c'mon Bill, let's not go overboard. LOL

Show me that one.

Cocoajoe uses CHINET products. I know this to be true!

Cocoajoe, please tell these fools that do not use CHINET products how wrong they are and how CHINET has enhanced your outlook on life!!

I think he means "out" in another way??

Truthtwat.

So for you to state that im on here 24/7, you must be too my friend. I'll be on here for as long as I like.

Im sure the new Gm will speak to Ross about what he thinks of Philbin as the season progresses. If Philbin and Coyle mess the season up, they are gone before the season is over.

Carlito,

Comprehend?

Do you read the Whole thing? What did Dashi say about Dominicans speaking to Oscar? Same thing.

If you know a Dominican person in real life. You know we are some of the easiest people to get along with and have some of the thickest skin you will ever know. We live to have a good time.

Most Dominicans have a positive outlook on life.

But sure!! You are right and Dashi is wrong!

Big. Red. Noses.


and now a new OC who has never called plays in the NFL. Here we go gain, just got laugh and go with it.

How in the hell do you think EVERY coordinator got their start? You think teams just go to the "Coordinator Aisle" at Target and pick one out?

It's called a PROMOTION. A MOVE UP THE COACHING LADDER.

You target a bright, young guy and give him the opportunity. If that wasn't how it worked you'd have an awful lot of 85-year-old coordinators dropping dead on the sidelines.

Ok, I'll bite. Nope, the old lady buys those paper plates you put in the wicker things

Nah I have a life Marco IDIOT...I look back at past postings and see your name for about 18 hrs a day.....sad that this is your life.
I would like to set up a donation link so that Marco IDIOT can quit his menial job at McDonalds or Taco Bell. All donations will go towards getting poor lil Marco IDIOT a life!!

Now Dashi is really out.

* Good joke truth.

You can also say that is what Dashi says right before he gets knocked out. Dashi Out.

The Truth,GO HANG YOUR PATHETIC SELF MORON.The oxygen will be better spent Eh?

I know plenty of DUMINICANS and they are far from thick skinned and easy to get along with. In fact they are very thin skinned and hard to get along with. Are quick to pull a knife and get there a sses kicked!

Remember folks Ape Tamer and Marco same loser IDIOT!!

Oh, Cocoajoe! I am extremely saddened to hear this!

Let me tell you: CHINET is VASTLY superior to all other paper plates on the market. Why, you can even pile a Thanksgiving Feast fit for a KING on a CHINET plate and IT WILL NOT BEND and drop your beautiful meal all over the floor for dogs and roaches to eat!!

I am sure that your wife is a lovely and wonderful woman who has simply been innocently unaware of how wonderful CHINET products are!

Now that you have this knowledge, I know that you will tell her to go to the nearest market that offers fine CHINET products and bring them home for you both to enjoy and cherish!

Marco spend a whole night telling us how fantastic London is (it isn't) yet he spends all day and nights and weekends on the blog.

So London is so great, but he likes blog trolling more.

Ohhh BTW I am Dominican from Washington Heights

Smart move by the new OC to NOT ATTACH HIS FUTURE to TCHOKE and say there IS something to work with Eh?
In translation. THe offseason is WIDE OPEN and Nothing is set in stone Eh?
But ofcourse the STUPID HOMERS will never see this BECAUSE THEY ARE DISEASED IMBECILES LIKE THE, THE MORON truth Eh dumb homer Eh?
JAJAJAJAJ. eH?

Its too easy to bust Marco IDIOT cuz he trolls all day everyday. Hard to keep track of what he said at 3am last night.

What's the difference between Dominicans and Haitians? They live on the same island but two different peoples?


Remember folks Ape Tamer and Marco same loser IDIOT!!

LOL, are you really Soiled? If so, we miss your humor. If not, thanks for the laugh anyway....much too serious here sometimes.

I'll be sure to pass that along Chinet

Ape,

Look Truth came balls deep out of mama to defend Thillbin.

Truth is you use more names than anyone, even congratulating yourself for being funny, (which your not).

Londons not for you, , awesome. One less embarrassment to the States over here.

Truth is Thillbin have things at a low around here. Lazor, will have to find success despite Thillbin poor guy.

Marco.g'day eh?
THe homers are clueless as always,No Surprise there Eh?
jjajajaajajEh?

Wow a lot of trolls are on tonight. I was hoping to blog with some dolphin fans about the new OC.

Oh well. I will try again tomorrow.

CHINET IS BEST,

what colors do you come in?

The freaks come out at night
The freaks come out at night
The freaks come out at night
(the freaks come out)
The freaks come out at night

This freak hears that a rumor is circulating (Mike Florio) that Xander may very well be interviewing for a job not associated with the GM opening. Perhaps President or Executive VP of Football Operations? Also Florio is presenting, as fact, that Xander and Farmer are very fast friends! Interesting.......!

Post of the day. This guy should post more often. Maybe you guys will learn something.

Okay..so Lazor thinks Philbin is a man of character, great football guy, looking forward to working...bLAH BLAH BLAH..YADDA YADDA ..

...What did anyone expect him to say?...that the guys a useless schitt, and doesn't have a clue?

...So now they have to discuss whether or not to keep coaches like Zac Taylor or ben Johnson ( QB and assistant QB coaches) who between them have only ONE YEAR experience in the NFL, and who helped T-Hill not one iota (sic).

I am so friggin' disgusted with this horse turd organization and its billionaire, know dik about football owner !!!

Needed: GM who can evaluate college prospects and select players who will excel at their position. Also identify the best player available on the board when making selection in NFL draft. Inquire within.

buster lazor was a very good hire

Oh, I am so gladdened to know that I am providing valuable CHINET INFORMATION to so many here!

In response to your query, I have seen CHINET PRODUCTS in a variety of exciting and modern colors such as RED, BLUE, YELLOW, and even ORANGE (can you imagine?!?). It is most thrilling to see them displayed in the store in these festive colors! One can't help but to start to "salsa dance" in front of them!

And SPEAKING of Salsa, no worries when you serve that Latin treat in a CHINET product! It will all stay IN THE BOWL (or PLATE) and not drip through or sag at the edges and drip onto the floor to for a cat or lizard to eat and possibly be POISONED!!

It has been said many times through the ages that only idiots use anything other than CHINET paper plates and bowls and it is TRUE! Even the esteemed scientists at the National Center for Paper Plate Research have confirmed this!

May the blessings of CHINET be upon each and every one of you!

Buster, maybe you are a horse turd fan? Can't you see the guy is being introduced and has to show class and let the process play out? I guess not. You ignorant stinky turd. Go get a real education or grow up if that is possible Hahahahaha

Also interesting that Lazor chose the Fins over Stafford, Megatron, Bush, and Bell.

"The blessings of Chinet?"

LOL. I just spit out my coffee.

rick stafford is a walking turnover, bush he knows is garbage. and caldwell one of the most clueless head coaches ever.

Not that I can possibly know for sure, but I think the guy from GB that went to the Giants just wasn't a fit on both ends. Lazer has experience with Holmgrem while he was at GB (Farve, Rodgers) and now with Chip Kelly in Philly.

I'm glad Philbin just didn't bring on a family guy from the past, like Ireland always did. Lazer seems good on paper at least, and not a consolation prize.

bodine dont just make things up, lazor was never with green bay or favre and rodgers

Dusty...I'm not criticizing the hiring of Lazor...but this is patchwork repair...

...those two assistants I mentioned had NO BUSINESS in positions designed to COACH a 2nd year QB in the NFL...

.....how the hell can someone with their lack of credentials be expected to accomplish that?

And the great organizer, Philbin , knew damn well they weren't qualified . Not only did he let it happen, but we have been told that he was recommending Zach Taylor to be OC. Tell me that this is not reprehensible at best.

And to Sinda...I didn't call anyone here a deprecating name. I am supposing your lack of logic forces you to resort to name calling. This is a blog...I have an opinion, and I express it, concerning the DOLPHINS...

I'm criticizing the owner and the way he does things and his lack of football pedigree...I didn't attack YOU..so why do you attack me?

Just wondering....

HOMERS STFU. YOU HAVE BEEN WRONG ABOUT THE DOLPHINS FOR A FKN DEACADE Eh?.YOU DAMN fools eh?

buster i agree on philbin, hes a joke and gone after next season. sad we are gonna waste another year on him. least ireland is gone

dusty,

You got me. I stand corrected. He was with Holmgrem at Seattle. Thanks.

Bodine,

Lazor is fairly young too and may be able to generate some excitement and interest with the players.

hes the perfect guy i think cause the new head coach after season im guessing would keep a young guy like him

Yes... Mando you are right! With all the talent Ireland gave Philbin and Turner to work with on to O-Line. Good dig. Love the negativity.Keep it up. Love your insight. Turner should be stoned to death. With all that talent he had. How could he not field a decent O-Line?

How about this. Lazor meets Turner and says I feel bad for you. I'm surprised you didn't quit . Why did you stay? You had no chance with that pile of sh*t Ireland gave you. Don't worry..We got a new GM coming in. I know he can do better finding O-Linemen that that stiff. My Grandmother could

Isn't this the guy who worked with the 88th pick in the 2012 draft (Nick Foles) and turned him into a better QB than the 8th pick (Ryan Tannehil)?
If he can't fix the lack of production and leadership from Tanny, who can?

Your a trip dusty your always wanting to give seasons away.

tony switch foles and thill last year and it would be thill looking great and foles running for his life

not wanting to rick, its pretty obvious with philbin as coach that its sparanos last year all over again
