I'm with TCPF. He'd be great at media relations, and help build the relationship with the community. As far as coaching, I'm not so sure about. It's pretty impossible to teach God-given talent like he had.

Moreno was one of the best blocking backs last year, as well as being very good catching balls out of the backfield. He'll be a clear upgrade over D. Thomas, and hopefully will help prevent Tannehill from getting killed.

Drafting based on need is not a good approach, and most successful teams don't do it. It often takes a player 3-4 years to develop into quality starter material, so if you draft a OL simply because it is a position of need, when there are higher rated players on the board at other positions, and you plug that rookie OL in as a starter you might not get an improved OL right away. In the meantime

As I pointed out earlier, you have to look at who each team is playing. Yes, New Orleans had the #1 O and only #25 D, but they were playing Indy, who had the #9 O but only #18 D. Neither defense was dominant (both in the bottom half of the league), so in this case the better offense one. The only real outlier here seems to be 2004, when the Patsies beat the Eagles, who had the #9 O and #10 D

Yes, technically the "new style QB" won the game, but winning the game had little to do with Wilson being "new style." If Denver had Seattle's defense and vice versa, Denver would have been the winner, and the "old style QB" would have won. And for a "new style QB," Wilson played most of the game like a traditional drop-back QB, with only 3 scrambles and

Those stats don't tell the whole story though. When you look at Super Bowl history when a team with a top offense and mediocre defense plays a team with a top defense and mediocre (or worse) offense, it is almost always the team that has the top defense that wins. The Ravens in 2000, The Patsies in 2001 (#6 D vs. #1 O, although they did cheat), the Bucs 2002 (#1 D vs. #1 O), the Giants in 2007

Peyton was under constant pressure from the D-line all game. His 2 INTs were a direct result of him being hit when he threw the ball. The second one his arm was hit as he was releasing the ball. The stats line only shows 1 sack, but he was constantly hurried and hit as he threw the ball. He reminded me of Tannehill this season. This was a total defensive effort. In contrast, KC was not a

Seattle's offense scored 3 offensive touchdowns. The longest drive for their offense was 58 yards, which they did twice - one resulted in a field goal, the other a touchdown. Two touchdown drives were less than 50 yards. Of those 3 offensive touchdowns, 2 came after Denver turnovers, and 1 came after Denver turned the ball over on downs. Wilson played an efficient game, but he certainly w

Seattle's offense did OK, but nothing special. They scored on a safety, a pick-6, and a kickoff return for TD. They also got the ball in Denver territory due to turnovers a couple of times and were able to only get field goals out of it. I give Seattle's D 22 points then, and their O 21 points.

The Bucs have had some very good drafts of late. The poor record is more a reflection of bad coaching than lack of talent. IMO, with the exception of the QB position, they have playoff level talent. They have also done well recently with signing free agents. The statement that the Bucs were bad before and after the Superbowl win is not a very accurate statement. The Bucs won in the 2002 se

I see your point ChryenB, but in reality both Duper and Clayton were always wide open (it seemed). They were like the #1 and #1A receivers, sort of like Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt with the Rams during their "Greatest Show on Turf" years. I think Clayton did have more opportunities because of the 2, most teams chose to double cover Duper, and Clayton became a mismatch for whatever poor

Just looking at the last 3 Bucs drafts (when Hickey was college scout for the Bucs), these are some of the players they drafted: 2011: Adrian Clayborn (starter), DaQuan Bowers (situational player), Mason Foster (starter), Luke Stocker (starter), Ahmad Black (backup), Anthony Gaitor (backup) 2012: Mark Barron (starter), Doug Martin (starter,pro-bowler), Lavonte David (starter, pro-bowler),

Not at all ChyrenB - I've been all for giving Philbin another year to see what he can do, especially with a new OC. If the Phins finish 8-8 again then yes, he should go. I think it's only fair to a HC, particularly one that has shown improvement every year, to give him 3 years. Otherwise we risk becoming the Cleveland Browns. I think the message that would be sent by firing him after this sea

ChryenB - Just watch the video highlights that Berk posted. Clayton was the prototypical deep threat (albeit a bit small). His first couple of years he averaged more ypc than Duper. He had breakaway speed. A possession receiver is the guy you want to throw to on 3rd and long that can get the 1st down, but they are not usually a threat to take it to the house or get behind the D.

In 1984 the Phins' closest thing to a possession receiver was Nat Moore, who they usually brought in on 3rd down (and sometimes 1st or 2nd for 3 receiver sets), and Jim Jensen. In reality, they didn't have a real "possesion" receiver. Marino threw it to whoever was open, which seems to be all of them. In '84, Clayton's and Duper's stats were almost identical (73 receptions, 1389 ya

So let me see if I've got this straight, ChyrenB: If the Phins perform poorly this coming season, it's Philbin's fault. If the Phins do well this season, it's because of Lazor, and Philbin will be the world's biggest liar for taking any credit for it. Is that about right? So you've put Philbin in the probervial "Catch-22" situation where no matter what happens this season

I thought the rant was classless and over the top, but after reading about it and him I'm not going to judge him based on an emotional outburst right after a big play clinching a Superbowl birth. To say that if he didn't play football he would be in prison with anger management issues is waaay off base. Sherman has not been one to be given stupid penalties, and he did go to Stanford (and gradua

The Eagles had the 2nd highest scoring offense in the league this season (442 points, 3 points behind the Bears). Once Foles became the starting QB this season, they had games where they scored 31, 49, 34, 30 and 54 points, amoung other things. Foles finished the season with the 3rd highest passer rating in NFL history, behind only Aaron Rodgers (2011) and Peyton Manning (2004). As you not

Firing Philbin at this point would be the worst thing Ross could do to this organization. He needs to be given 1 more year. Otherwise the message Ross is sending to potential coaching/GM candidates is that he has no commitment to rebuilding; a new coach as 2 years at most to get the team to the playoffs or they are gone, even if the team shows improvement. What quality coach would want to come

> > We need to win and have either Baltimore lose or > SD win. Truth is correct. If we end up in a 2-way tie with Baltimore then Baltimore goes based on head-to-head (they beat us). If we end up in a 2-way tie with SD, then we go based on head-to-head. If all three end up tied, then we go based on conference record (the head-to-head records cancel each other out).

Yes, we need to root for Baltimore to lose and SD to win. SD winning does not hurt us in any way, and if they win (and we win) we go to the playoffs regardless of what Baltimore does. Fortunately KC will be resting a lot of their starters against SD.

Bush wanted a multi-year deal, and he is older and has been injury prone. We would not have gotten an extra 1000 yards if we kept Bush; Miller has ~650 yards so far, so we would have gotten about an extra 300 yards all things being equal. But our O-line sucks this year even worse than last year, so I don't think Bush would have had equivalent production. The MO of the front office and coaching

I find it amusing that some people here say "we let so and so go to another team, and they're performing great." The Reggie Bush comparison is a joke. He's on pace for just over 1,000 yards rushing this year (4.7 ypc), with 4 TDs. Last year with the Phins he had 986 rushing yards (4.3 ypc) with 5 TDs. Last year he had 292 receiving yards with 2 TDs, this year he has 473 receiving ya

If Miami doesn't go, I am wondering who is worthy? Baltimore, who got trounced at home 41-7 by a Patsies team we beat last week, knowing that win and they're win? San Diego, whom we've already beat, and who has lost to Houston, Oakland and Washington this year?

If you blame the Dolphin's lack of success on Philbin for being "Mr. Emotionless" how do you explain Belicheat's success (aside from cheating)? The guy is not exactly Mr. Gregarious; in fact, I have never seen him wear any expression except for the look of perpetual constipation on the sideline.

So I am wondering - did they show they can do "far better" because of excellent work by Ireland in bringing in talent, or by great coaching? I'm confused here, because you want everyone fired but seem to think this team has shown some great things.

You're all right. We should have kept running the ball at our 1.8 YPC so Tannehill would have to pass on third and long every series. As I remember, this was JJ's strategy when Marino was quarterback, and it sure worked out well - run the ball even when you can't, and hope the QB can bail you out on 3rd and long.
