So your team starts the season 1-2 and so far, they look pretty uninspired. All the promises from 2011 have failed to come to pass, and you essentially "bet the farm" on the development of Ryan Tannehill. Only, he was misguided the first two seasons right under your nose and you didn't even notice....you even went to bat for your offensive coordinator despite him guiding your QB in the completely wrong direction. Because let's face it folks, if you watch Tannehill's college videos, he certainly was not a pocket passer entering the league and we wasted precious time trying to convert him into one. So in year three, you make big splashes in free agency with promises of a bright future, and for a little while things looked like it was Miami's year. Top five defense, a blossoming quarterback, and a real shot at taking New England's crown come December. But then it all went wrong- injuries crippled us, just like they always do, and our bench simply wasn't deep enough to keep us competitive. Then the big whammy came- other teams found how to limit Tannehill's effectiveness, forced him out of the pocket and cut off those short throws. He got sacked a whole lot in three years, but your young QB certainly wasn't to blame since he did everything that was asked of him. He went out there every week, took his licks and did everything he could to "slay the dragon", even though others around him seemed like they could care less. The saddest part is that in year one, he was feeling that pressure and scrambling to make something happen. But your OC told him over and over again, "NO NO NO! Stay in the pocket! That's where you belong!" And like a good trooper he has, even when the rest of the world is screaming for him to use his athleticism to make that first down with his feet or to extend the play. We literally beat one of his best attributes out of him, just like the previous coach did with Henne and his obsession with touch passes. Perhaps the most damning evidence of all was that your specialty is supposed to be evaluating and developing offensive linemen, yet we consistently had the worst starting five in the league. We drove Incognito out of town simply because he was a mean person, and in hindsight some of that meanness would really come in handy right about now. Because your team has somehow become almost docile, uninterested and uninspiring. Entering your fourth year, a balloon year of sorts, you make another big splash in free agency by revamping the receiving corp and bringing in the best defensive lineman in the game. Which was sort of strange since we have a very talented RB/QB combo with nobody to really block for them, but reports say that Tannehill has taken huge strides this off-season and he is far more accurate. Only, it doesn't seem to translate to on-field play and for the third season in a row, your offense starts flat. Dropped passes, missed blocks, and strip sacks seem to pile up...and the best you can think to say is, "I don't know what happened...we will have to look at the tape and figure it out." Only, in this alternate universe where you're the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, you know exactly what's wrong- your team has no motivation. Players are arm tackling 45 seconds into your third contest and you're getting annihilated at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball, plus it's readily apparent that we desperately need a starting cornerback. Who was that guy we cut a few years ago? What was his name....that guy who's consistently been one of the top 5 corners in the league? It's hard to keep track since the Dolphins that we've cut in your tenure scored more points this week than your entire offense has the entire season. Clay, Davis, Carpenter, 7 Eleven, Incognito...the list goes on and on of talent we let walk for very little compensation. So as Joe Philbin, you pretty much know that your days are numbered. Some jerk reporter started a thread to fire you immediately, and comments like that tend to take traction when you're putting up 14 points a game. And you have to think to yourself, "If they're going to fire me, then it would make a lot of sense to do it going into the bye week." That gives you a minimum of 7 more days at the helm if the worst comes to pass. So as Philbin, what do you do to turn everything around in the next seven days? How do you give your team a "eye-opening" moment where things begin to click and play-makers start to emerge? Where do you find the inspiration that's been missing for four long seasons to light a fire under these guys? I personally have my own answer, but I figured that I'd open it up for discussion before providing it since I'm interested in what others may think. So if you're the head coach of the Miami Dolphins and on the verge of being fired in the next 2-11 weeks, what do you do?
