Good news regarding Brock because Miami already has a QB and won't pursue Brock? Is that what you mean?

More like good news for the Pats, Bills and Jets. Gase is not ready for head coach job. A few more years of losing appear in the cards for the dull fins.

Wow.

Thought Shanahan was a shoo-in for that Miami job.they met with shanahan... that's why GASE will get the job !
shanahan needs KUBIAK, TURNER and GIBBS to be a viable candidate.

when JFE had an opening at HC, he didn't even bother calling shanahan !!!

JFE who knows mike shanny better than ANY OF US, instead hired GFK !
JFE chose GFK over shanahan!!!
all you shanny lovers need to figure it out !
JFE knows who did the work when he was QB of our broncos!

on MONDAYS...
shanny played golf while GFK made the gameplan and the 20 play script.

reality, you may choose to ignore it but JFE knows the ttruth, that's why he hired KUBIAK and didn't even bother calling mike !

Not that Gase is not deserving of a shot, but that is a terrible hire for that franchise. 4 straight HC'ing hires by that franchise that had no HC NFL experience. At a certain point you need a John Fox type to just right the ship and get the boat heading in the right direction. Not that I care one way or another what Miami does.

Maybe. That approach hasn't worked the last three times they tried it though. Just seems a first time guy is always in a little over his head, and the NFL is not known for patience.

Good luck to Gase, hope he owns NE and has a solid idea what he needs to do with their personnel. I think that is what usually beats up first time guys. McD's answer to that was to make a long snapper one of our top paid guys and to act as the locker room snitch...

On paper, Gase and Joseph both seem like quality hires. Tannehill has as much physical ability as any QB in the league. Adam builds up some talent around him and coaches him up, that team could be scary in a couple of years.

Shanahan won 2 SBs with a HOF roster than proceeded to run the roster into the ground, lost his team and got fired.

Went to Washington and took a top 5 defense down to 30 ish in one season.

Got fired after 5 poor seasons.

Why does anyone think Shanahan is some hot coaching commodity.

Great hires for the Dolphins. Gase has assembled a hell of a staff.
Miami Dolphins: Fox Sports’ Alex Marvez reports Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph, Bengals linebackers coach Matt Burke, Bears defensive line coach Clint Hurtt and Cowboys defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson will join the Dolphins staff.

Also, for those who are hating on Marvin Lewis, Mike Brown is the one who will not assistants leave while under contract for less than a HC gig.
That is the owner/Gm's rule.

A team like the Browns would be absolutely crazy not to snag up someone like Shanny. Just keep him away from personnel matters and he will instantly be the best coach they have ever had in their (replacement) franchise history.

Problem is, Shanny has made it clear that it would have to be the perfect situation to get him back into coaching, and the Clowns are far from perfect.

Regarding the Miami job, it is possible that it was Shanny that said no to them, not the other way around. He probably wants full control, and they (wisely) said no.

Remember that Elway interviewed Adam Gase before he hired Kubiak. In hind-sight, it was thought that if Kubiak was not available, Gase would have been the next in line for the Broncos job.

And I agree with you about the staff Gase is assembling. Young and creative, like
Gase himself. I noticed he got a 5 yr contract(smart guy!).I just hope the Dolphins give him a minimum 3 yrs to turn things around down there; he deserves an honest chance.

Miami's got a bad locker room culture. we all saw that on Hard Knocks a couple of years ago and with the Incognito situation.

that needs to get fixed first. you need to ship out the me-first guys and replace them with team players. he'll need 2-3 years to get that sorted out before you can really judge him by on field results. seems like maybe a no-win situation for him having to play the Pats*, Bills, and Jets twice a year. i'd pick MIA to finish last in 2016 and 2017 at the very least. they won't be competitive for a while.

No real way to instantly fix that. Your QB is not a true leader, Suh and Grimes have maturity issues and all of your key players are signed long term with cap hell behind it to cut them.

Why do teams keep allowing this for first-time head coaches? It's just silly.
Let them coach first. Damn.
Though the Phins culture completely sucks and their GM hires have been terrible.

giving Gase control doesn't have to mean he's gonna do it all. he just needs a to hire a guy to focus on that that reports to him. unlike a GM, to whom he would report.

i'm not opposed to it so long as it's not one guy micromanaging both responsibilities, which is what i think got Shanny in trouble.

I don't know, the tanning opportunities are far better in Miami

Seriously Miami has a good D and a skilled QB, SF not so much.

since when did Shanny care about defense?

he can always trade for the whole Browns starting DL and Lb corps if necessary.

Hilarious!

I'm sad that Shanahan didn't get the Miami job. The Miami vs Pats games would be on abother level.

Gase is a mistake. Should have gone for Shanny.

I think Tannehill is a reason Miami went with Gase, he has a good record working with QBs over the last years and I think Ross is pretty committed to Tannehill so it makes sense getting a QB-centric HC.

Usually having control over the roster involves a bit of micromanaging. Some guys will only use final say, others exert control over every part of the process.
Which is usually what first time NFL HC's do since they either came from college and are used to controlling every aspect of the program or they come from a place where it was done that way and they feel the need to do so at the new destination as well.

Yeah but Shanahan's great with QBs too and actually wanted to draft Tannehill but was overruled by Daniel Snyder who sold the farm for RGIII.

Wow.

Thought Shanahan was a shoo-in for that Miami job.

Because of the tan?

No respect for Gase. He was part of the Fox & Del Rio trio that mailed it in before the Colts playoff game last year. F' him.
