    Flores gets fired for not getting along with players, so hire Doug Pederson who got fired for not getting along with players...

    Ross is hopeless.

    This is what I cannot wrap my mind around:

    Jim Harbaugh is the only candidate that would be an obvious upgrade over Flores. I am looking at names being tossed around, and I really think Flo is better than every other name being tossed around.

    this is classic Miami. Build a gimmick offense around a QB who can’t stay healthy and will probably be washed out in 4 years. Then the story will be, we have to rebuild an entire new offense because we’ve got a new QB. The clown Ferris wheel keeps spinning round and round in Miami.

    Ross cares more about the University of Michigan than the football team he owns and is responsible for

    They need the gimmick offence because Tua had no time to throw.

    There are no alternatives at QB, other than Watson (which isn't even an option IMHO).

    This just goes to show how utterly inept Ross is. It is pretty much public knowledge at this time that Harbaugh is looking to come back to the NFL - I am getting the sooner or later vibe. I feel like most people with a high school education understand that you are not taking anyone from anywhere if they are choosing to leave on their own.

    I seriously would like to know how this man was smart enough to be a billionaire.

    I'll be surprised if it isn't Harbaugh, to be honest. Then maybe he can bring in Bienemy to run the offense.

    Or our GM could have kept Karras and Flowers. We might not have had a “good” OL but it wouldn’t have been historically bad and maybe even serviceable.

    This is the problem with constant coaching changes. You change coaches, schemes and players to fit those schemes. Likely moving on from the cover 0 defense. Do we have the personnel for a 4-3? Do we need new pieces to run a 3-4 then new coach likes? Now we’re set back a couple more years. Then all those draft picks we’ve had need to be resigned .

    It’s a vicious cycle.

    It is. And most teams are on that wheel for a long time. Look at Cleveland and Minnesota.

    Pre 2019, the Phins could have actually been relatively competitive.

    They blew the thing up. I like the core of this team. But a competent O-line is a must.

    The A tier is pretty much Doug Pederson, especially if he gets a good DC. Dennis Allen is meh, but if he hires an A+ offensive staff I'd give him a chance. If you want something off the wall but reasonable... Ryan Day. If you want an offensive dude, he's at the top, and while he is a college HC he has NFL roots.

    Honestly, as long as it is NOT Bill Obrien or Matt Patricia I'll give it a chance. If it's either of them, then we need to demand this franchise be fired into the sun.

    Probably won’t matter because they’ll be fired in 3 years and we’ll be sold on a “new/better” rebuild

    What about chargers OC Joe Lombardi? I know his resume is thin, but he spent forever as NO QB coach, working with Brees. Maybe he brings in Joe Brady as OC, another saints alumni... I hate the idea of another first time HC, but at this point, wtf can we do.

    I'll throw it out it there... Mike Shannhan. Proven system. Access to assistants that are proven...

    If we're stuck with Tua, we need someone with a background working with QBs.

    Yes but it’s absolutely moronic to think that a coach can change a losing culture, implement his systems and find his players on a completely gutted roster without a franchise QB in 3 seasons. You need some continuity and changing coaches doesn’t help with that.

    Had Flores lost the team and we ended up with 4-6 wins, I could maybe understand this. We won 8/9 games. Griers off-season plan outside of the draft was a complete bust. This team wasn’t set up for success.

    I think we all identified that, even an average team, could win 6 of the Dolphins final 9 games. After the Ravens game, we saw the next games and could see the chance of a win-out being possible.

    I don't know the dynamics behind the scenes. I suspect, after the 1-7 start, the writing was already on the wall. Flores needed to work on his resume.

    If you think Tua isn't the answer then yeah, we're ****ed. But I haven't bailed on him yet.

    Whoever ends up as HC had better bring in a good staff. I really can't stand that we are doing this again.

    Good teams lose to bad teams all the time in the NFL. The colts lost their playoff hopes to a Jacksonville team that lost their head coach. Detroit beat Arizona. The Jets beat Cincy. winning 8 out of 9 is impressive no matter how you slice it. We beat Baltimore when they were considered one of the best team in the AFC and we beat a division rival in the last game of the year.

    It would have been very easy for this team to give up after the 1-7 start. Kudos to Flo for keeping them in the fight. I hope he goes on to show what a mistake this was, exposing Grier and Roses for the buffoons they are.

    What a mess. Hey, maybe we get lucky and this turns into a repeat of that Tony Dungy firing. He also rebuilt Tampa Bay with a great defense, mediocre offense, had consecutive winning seasons (Dungy was better though.. he kept making the playoffs but losing) and the next coach (Gruden) comes in and wins the SB the year after. lol.. yeah one can dream.

    Ross is so inept. Why does he always take half measures? With Ross, our best strategy for winning the SB is clearly luck. lol

    Don't care what this team does til Grier meets Guillotine. I had my ups and downs admittedly with Coach Flores this season, but I certainly don't put this disaster on him. If anything from what I've heard the team rallied behind him.

    I wish we could all sign a big post-card to send him, so he's not to anxious to beat the snot out of us if/when he goes on to be a success somewhere else.

    This would make a lot of sense, but I can't help thinking they'll only go after someone with prior HC experience

    They might not be able to get someone with prior experience. Someone like that might be wary of the shenanigans that have gone on in Miami over the last years.

    You all let me know when we get somebody. I'm not going to invest an erg of energy trying to care when I expect the next coach (and the one after him) to fail. Y'all know me; I'm almost never down on the team. I largely disappeared during the losing streak because I didn't have anything positive to contribute about a team that seemed to have given up. I'm not going to troll; if I feel I have nothing but negativity to contribute, I'll avoid letting my frustrations add to yours. I have a feeling, I might need to step back and let the offseason simmer before I start printing up receipts for y'all to drop on me when/if things turn around.

    SMH.

    Keeping Grier will limit the interest from potential candidates. Harbaugh is not leaving Michigan to become “just” a coach in the NFL with no say in personnel matters. This is a job only attractive to first time HCs, although if I was Eric Bienemy, I wouldn’t be leaving KC, Reid and Mahomes for Grier, Ross and Tua.

    What is wrong with Jim Caldwell?
    Offensive guy.
    Experienced head coach.
    Won in Detroit and nobody wins in Detroit.
    Had a 14-2 season in Indy.
    Won a Super Bowl as an Offensive Coordiantor.
    Has connection and is well respected to build a staff.

    He was not fired by Miami. He was hired in January 2019 and left for medical reasons in July 2019. He was never even on staff for a single game.

    But we did hire him. So someone in the Org does like him.

    yeah, both of those were one hundred precent flores calls. The last thing the gm wants to do is eat a cap hit on those players.
