I love this hire. Solid coach with a ton of experience and a pretty good won-loss record as a head coach. Yes, I know that his stats are padded by having taken over for Tony Dungee in Indy and having Manning as his QB, but still we haven't had a coach with his pedigree on the Miami assistant coaching staff in it seems like decades. Great mentor for Flores. I like the fact that Flores is unafraid of having a guy on his staff that could easily be named interim coach at some point in the future if things go awry. I always thought that Gase had too big an ego to hire accomplished assistants, hence Burke, Loggains, Foerster, etc. I've been a huge critic of some of the hair brain hires this franchise has made in the past...(Tannenbaum being the most notable example). I like to praise decisions that make sense and this is one of them.
100% agree. Glad that clown Gase is out. I like the Caldwell move and the recent addition of McKenzie. If we get Don Capers to be Caldwell counterpart on D I would say the front office has really got there act together when it comes to drawing talent to Miami.

I think Jacksonville signed Capers to be their senior defensive assistant but I'm okay with how things stack up because I expect Flores is more than capable of dealing with the defense. Offense is something that I think Caldwell will be invaluable to Flores. He's been a coordinator as well as a head coach. Honestly, I think we'd have been better off interviewing Caldwell for the head coaching position than stiffs like Dennis Allen and Loggains. That said, I'm good with a smart young guy like Flores who has the support of a seasoned coach who's been successful in the league. Now if we can just have a good draft or two, who knows?

Definitely. Harris in particular could benefit from a position move to LB in a 3-4 defense. He's just not suited to be a DE. I think Gesecki will get better with better quarterbacking. The trick is to find better quarterbacking. So far, I like what I'm seeing because it's in stark contrast to what I saw in Gase. It's early but I guess it doesn't cost anything to be optimistic.

Easy...Just look at your bank account during the game. Also, we didn't score points with any QB since...shoot...I can't even remember. If your offense scores 10 then your job on defense is to make sure the other team scores 9. PERIOD!!!!
I get paid to do my job and do it well. You think I let my work slip because I may have to pick up the slack of other people around me? That is a loser mentality and that kind of thinking should not be welcome on any team.
These big guys are nothing but sissy ass whining little girls. You are paid to play and game and paid very handsomely to do it. Do the job you are paid to do and no one will complain.
The one change at QB is not going to make this team better instantly. They are working towards becoming better with all these hirings. Again, Tanne is not the reason this team has been garbage for so long. A factor? Maybe. But to think that replacing him makes us instantly competitive is dumb.
The whole Tannehill "debate" at this point is moot. He's not going to be on the team next year (very likely) and therefore I wish him well wherever he goes (unless he goes to the pats, bills, or jets and except when he plays Miami). Tannehill wasn't helped by the coaching or the personnel people while he was here. The offensive line has stunk to high heaven. Gase gets a hair up his ass and gets rid of the few players that were actually play-makers. That said, Tannehill will likely be going forward what he's been throughout the years he's been here. At times good, at times bad, and never consistently either one. Time to forget Tannehill and wait to see who is brought in. Personally, I'd rather wait until 2020 to draft our QB. The QBs in this year's draft don't excite me and I sure as hell don't want to spend a first rounder on what looks to be average QB talent. We have way too many holes to fill to waste any first round picks.
> My point is we score almost no points..
RESPONSE: We scored 19.9 ppg last year. 26th in the league so yes we didn't score much. 7 games with 20 points or fewer which we only won 1 of those. Only 2 games we played with less than 10 points and loss both.
> What defense is going to want to get up to play
> when they know the offense scores almost no
RESPONSE: That is what they are paid to do.
> On this same team with same players....you put a

RESPONSE: Yea one player will help us overcome the Pats and the rest of the AFC playoff teams
> I do think a change to a better qb will instantly
> make us better...
RESPONSE: I agree that it could make us better but far from fixing everything in order to sustain a winning team
> Why didnt it work out with suh.....Why did landry
> struggled? Etc etc.
RESPONSE: I hope you don't mean Jarvis. I think you should go look at his stats with us every year with "mediocare" QB's throwing him the ball and compare it to his year last year with the Browns. Suh had good years for us every year he played. He can't do everything on the D-line.
> Why doesnt it work with some players who played
> here and are in other teams now playing better?
RESPONSE: Coaching is probably the number 1 reason for this over everything else.
> BECAUSE wE SCORE ALMOST NO POINT WITH SORRY
RESPONSE: We scored enough to win games. I am in support of getting a new QB but not reaching for one. But I am tired of all the blame being on Tanne. This whole team sucked but they are fixing that. Takes time.

I wish I could just give up on my job and still have a job and get paid. Must be nice and I make much less than these babies.
No joke, if that is how they are or how they think then they need to be removed off the team. Such a loser mentality to think like that. No wonder kids now a days are such pu$$y's...
