I'm sure most of us saw this play Sunday night: [video]http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-cant-miss-plays/0ap3000000550220/Can-t-Miss-Play-Spiller-s-80-yard-TD-for-the-win[/video] What you see there was a newly inserted linebacker who was exposed by an offensive mind (Sean Payton), coupled with a high-quality quarterback and a speedy player on the receiving end. Those sorts of plays inspire an entire team. They tell the team they have a coach who knows what he's doing, and a quarterback who can execute the plan. Players must have that sort of faith in their coaches and teammates if they're going to believe they can compete at a high level in this league. If they don't have that belief, they're likely to -- as we've heard lately -- "go through the motions" in practice and even somewhat on gameday. As Dan Campbell said yesterday, "it doesn't work that way." Now, enter Campbell as head coach. Campbell's message yesterday was that the team has more talent than it appears on its surface. He said the difference is in getting the most out of these players, challenging them to "scratch and claw" and compete and play at their full potential. Campbell is a former long-time player in the league. I have to believe he can tell the difference between a untalented team that wasn't able to compete regardless, and a team whose talent wasn't being fully tapped. So, why wasn't this team's talent being fully tapped? I recently wrote about this here: http://www.thephins.com/forums/showthread.php?87237-Sunday-was-the-Players-Message-to-Stephen-Ross So, is all well now? Can we expect the players to suddenly turn it around now that the Joe Philbin "ball-and-chain" has been removed? I'm not so sure. As we saw in the video above, inspiration is generated from coaches who know what they're doing and can exploit the opposition, coupled with players who can pull that off. If the Dolphins' players believe that it was not only Joe Philbin, but also his coordinators, weighing them down, making a change at head coach without also making a change in the coordinators is unlikely to result in any greater inspiration in the locker room, and little if any greater "fire" on the field in practice and on gameday. In other words, Dan Campbell may sound like the anti-Joe Philbin in terms of his intensity, aggression, and fire, but if the players continue to feel that even their best efforts will be undermined by offensive and defensive coordinators who don't know what they're doing, they're very unlikely to generate any greater inspiration than we've seen thus far this year. More changes may need to be made for the "Dan Campbell effect" to truly take hold. His personality alone may not be sufficient.
