...is give Gase a chance! I've never seen such pessimism towards a Dolphins hire on this board before. Hey, maybe that's a good sign since most people liked the past few hires... Gase wasn't my first choice either but after learning more about him, he's starting to grow on me. One thing I can definitely say is that he is a much better choice than the past few Dolphins HCs. Let's take a look at what he brings to the table and compare that to previous Dolphins HCs: 1) Gase is viewed in coaching circles as a cerebral X&O's type guy. That's more than we can say about Campbell, Philbin, and Sparano. 2) Gase has had experience as a scouting assistant, WR coach, QB coach, and offensive coordinator. A lot of versatility there, unlike Philbin, Campbell and Sparano who've been either OL, TEs coach or a glorified OC before being hired by the Dolphins. 3) Gase has had experience calling plays. >> Campbell, Philbin and Sparano. 4) Gase is establishing himself as somewhat of a QB whisperer. He's had some degree of success with his past three QB's. A lot of people don't want to count the Manning years but I'm not one of them. Even if all he did was just sit, listen, and learn from Peyton Manning for 3 years, that in itself is valuable. The guy worked closely with one of the best QB's to ever play the game (was his QB coach in 2012 and OC in 2013 and 2014), that is a positive to me. His QB coaching resume is probably the best we've seen the past 15+ years in a Dolphins HC hire. And before anyone brings up Philbin, no he did not ever work close with Aaron Rodgers like Gase did with Manning. 5) Gase is said to get along with everyone and has no ego. Always a positive to me. BONUS: There are reports saying that Campbell might be kept maybe as an Assistant HC or as an OC. I think this is just what the doctor ordered. Campbell already knows the locker room and has a personality that I think will complement Gase's perfectly. If Dan Campbell respects Gase (probably does, since Gase coached him in Detroit), the players will follow along, making the transition pretty smooth. What say you?
