This is real news now?
It was all probably agreed with Grier and Flores, but it places Gailey in a better light, if it’s announced that he resigned.
Okay, who are the best candidates to replace him?
Anthony Lynn should get looked at.
Maybe Ken Dorsey. I dunno, just a wild idea.
Finally Gailey has haunted my teams forever from Miami to Georgia Tech, and back. Hopefully the nightmare is finally over for good.
That's an interesting thought. What's his experience beyond being the Bills QB Coach. I don't know anything about him.
Lynn could be an interesting choice too. Definitely an offensive minded coach.
That's what they thought about Jason and Freddie Kruger.
Resignation...phew. It would have stunk if we fired him a few days after the media told him that he was fired. Good luck to him in his 2nd retirement!
Bah, as long as we don't hide in the spooky abandoned building, everything should be absolutely fine. Oh, and don't ever go to sleep ever again...that's a big one too! =)
Okay, I repeat my concerns about Flores not being able to settle on an OC and system. The offense will be set back by a month or so in 2021, as they learn to play in a new system. That means we lose a game the first month of the season that we could have won if everyone was comfortable and on the same page offensively.
Tua's development will be stunted a bit as he learns yet another offense. He should still take a leap, if he is going to be the player expected when he was drafted at #5, but he won't really know the offense inside and out until year two in it.
I don't mind Flores making a change after year one, but to change again in year two is a problem. Gailey was going to be short-term, but I expected 2-3 years when he unretired, not a one-and-done. So, chalk this up as a mistake by Flores and the first red flag for me regarding this coach.
You don't keep around a bad asset for the sake of continuity.
You don't get to select TWO bad assets in a row and not get some criticism. Year one I understand, you are scrambling to put a staff together. Year two? A more calculated decision that Flores got wrong -if he wanted offensive continuity and the smoothest development for Tua.
No way. You get rid of bad assets and try again. This isn't a red flag for Flores it's a sign of a no-nonsense coach. VERY good sign. One could argue Tua's development would be stunted far more if we kept Gailey.
So, if Flores fires the OC of 2021 and hires a FOURTH guy in 2022, he's doing a GREAT JOB? Is that the argument? Wouldn't it be better if Flores got the OC pick right and we had a guy around for at least 3-4 years instead?
Flores hired Gailey. Seems it was a bad decision, and minor props to Flores for understanding that, but major blame for making the wrong choice in the first place.
Maybe Gailey feels that Tua is NOT a franchise QB and Flores doesn't want to hear it? We'll find out in the next year or two what the story is on Tua.
Flores hiring Gailey was a bad decision. Not arguing that. But Flores firing Gailey was a good decision. You suggested in the post I responded to (first sentence, last paragraph) that he keep Gailey on despite his hiring being a mistake. THAT is what I'm arguing against. Continuity is not so important that you keep bad assets (exactly my response to your first post).
Fair enough, I think we both misunderstood exactly what the other was getting at. I agree you can't keep Gailey just for the sake of continuity, but worry that Flores is struggling to find an OC and stick with them.
I think we cyberbullied him into retirement.
If we have another 10+ win season? Yes, that means he did a good job. It's a completely different story when you're 7-9 and ALMOST good enough to be considered a contender.
I get that we want to nail the right coaches off the bat, but you also have to realize that it's a process and you often have to take whatever's available at the moment. Taking a coaching job is like playing chess- the wrong move can destroy your career and prevent you from ever being HC material. I can see why folks wouldn't want to jump on-board with a 5-win team in full rebuild....a 10-win squad with an elite defense and loaded up with draft picks is a completely different story though.
In other words, people who wouldn't even consider Miami a year ago may have us as their #1 choice today.
continuity was the reason Adam Gase was still the HC fir the Jets this year. How did that work out for the Jets and Sam Darnold?
If that's what it takes to get it done then I did my part.
I want Anthony Lynn here
Think they should interview Mike Kafka. Chiefs qb coach
Evidently Flores didn't fire Gailey. Flores was caught by surprise when Gailey retired, as reported by Armando Salguro of the Miami Herald. Gailey had been hinting for months that he was uncomfortable with the strict Covid protocols.
I don't see this as a negative for Flores as some do. I think Gailey was really brought in to pair with Fitzpatrick. Miami didn't know at the time they'd end up with Tua. I think it was clear that Gailey and Tua weren't exactly a good match right from when we drafted Tua. Gailey was already here, we didn't know we'd end up with Tua. It is what it is I suppose. I believe it was likely always a one and done for Gailey here once we were able to draft Tua.
Now; if they certainly are considering sticking with Tua long term the slate is cleared on the offensive side of the ball to find a new OC that pairs with Tua & find some new skilled offensive players that fit the new system.
If Brian Daboll gets a HC gig, he'd probably be the leading candidate to replace. That said, if you aren't going for an experienced coordinator, a QB coach on a team with a young QB who has shown marked growth and improvement is a logical fit.
Good move (if It is what I'm.thinking). If Flores wants Tua to have a chance then Gailey is not the answer. I don't see the dolphins running screens, or moving Tua around, etc.
Here are some options...
LOL at the idea of Bill O'Brien coming here after giving us all his picks. I wonder how much contact he and Flores had with each other, could be a real possibility. I wouldn't be excited, but as long as he isn't a head coach or - jesus christ - a GM then I guess he would be alright.
Thanks for posting.
SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Don't say (0r write) that too much. They might figure that out!
There is light at the end of the tunnel after all!!!
I was about to laugh at the thought of Bill O'Brien. Then I looked up how well the Patriots did the one year he was the Offensive Coordinator.
He was also quite impressive at Penn State. Keep him away from personnel decisions and we could do a lot worse. He's also apparently being woo'ed by Nick Saban, so it's not like he's a pariah.
Sometimes guys just aren't cut out for HC/GM duties, but are really good as coordinators or position coaches.
