Default Dolphins’ coaches found Brandon Marshall “difficult”

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that there have been questions around the league about why the Dolphins moved Karl Dorrell from receivers coach to quarterbacks coach, a position he has never held at any level. But one clue as to why the Dolphins took Dorrell off the receivers coach job comes from an unnamed Dolphins staffer who told Jackson that handling Marshall was difficult at times for Dorrell.

A positive season next year and it will be finished but for this off season how the infamous trio faired this season will be discussed a fair bit.

kind of a sketchy article, sounds gossipy, but I thought this post underneath it was funny.

From the same source that brought you “The Titanic took on a bit of water”

cracks me up how people say talking about former players is some sign we can't move on. It's par for the course. Fans of teams have been fixated on former player coming back to play the team, how they do, if they screw up like they did in previous town etc etc. Hell I'm still pissed we traded Willie Brown to the ****ing Raiders.

You can look forward and back at the same time when you are the fan of a team. It's stuff like this that makes it fun.

With that 2nd round pick I hope we can get Kyle Rudolph or maybe the safety from UCLA Raheem Moore I think it is, man that kid can play.

If we got him that would lesson losing out of the good safety in Sea we lost because of A smith trade.

Is it because BM demanded that the facilities be cleared of all food wrappers before he could enter?

and the won lost record has what to do with the statement we have better personal now than before McD took over exactly?

Do you understand what the rebuilding process entails? Do you know that in a rebuild the won/ lost record gets worse before it gets better? Do you think just because you bring in a new HC that all of a sudden you start winning games? You are in for more disappointment than.

You are what your record says you are. There is no quantifiable way to demonstrate that a 4-12 is 'better' than an 8-8 team. It's simply hand waving on your part.

You can hold the opinion they are better looking, better singers, better dancers, etc. But 4-12 is 4-12.

My friend (a Dallas fan) went on and on about how much better Dallas was than Washington. Both teams were 6-10. Everything else is hand waving.

Looking to the future it's good to know we have at least improved our talent level to build on. That is my point.

I understand what your point is. I simply disagree with it.

The general consensus is that moving Cutler/Marshall/Hillis/Scheffler (and often throwing the resulting picks away) resulted in a DOWNGRADE in the teams talent. (to say nothing of the degradation from players like Harris, Royal, and Clady). These guys that are gone each had their own issues (some full blown head cases). But 'lack of talent' is not generally considered one of them.

I don't see how anyone can objectively conclude that a 4-12 team is 'more talented' than an 8-8. It is your opinion and you are welcome to it - but the facts do not support it.

I suspect the new wide receivers coach will find Marshall to be difficult too. Miami should be in the market for a new QB.
