    Excellent article! Thank you for posting that, Galant. I tend to be hard on myself for not understanding what is going on. The article reveals that it is not something easy and to really understand football you have to put some serious time in. I wonder if this is what Carmin does when he watches film? I think he said he really breaks the coaches all-22 down. If so, props to him for the major effort!

    When I worked in insurance I drilled a similar method into my team as a way of controlling costs. It’s hard work so when other work teams tried to Implement it they did it half assed and got no benefit from it.

    If you’re going to do it, the boss man/woman needs to be committed to making it work, actively reviewing what the subordinates come up with. So it’s hard work for the boss too because they have to do their review and then assess the subordinate’s review looking at what they’ve missed and what they noticed that the boss missed.

    Bottom line is people like to say how hard they work, but not many people actually do something productive that requires real effort. If the boss isn’t regularly and actively reviewing their work the subordinates will slack off. It’s easy for the boss to think there are better things to do with their time. People will stay late and grind tape without actually getting anything productive from it. You need a systemic approach.

    For two years, the personnel men and coaches who knew Brian Flores across the NFL kept repeating the praise.

    "The best New England coach who isn’t named Bill Belichick.
    The guy from the Patriots’ coaching tree who will hit it big.
    Get to know him. You’ll see why he’s respected." The best New England coach who isn’t named Bill Belichick.
    The guy from the Patriots’ coaching tree who will hit it big.

    "Get to know him. You’ll see why he’s respected".

    "In a few days, Flores will be named the next coach of the Miami Dolphins. But the Patriots’ linebackers coach and de facto defensive coordinator this season didn’t leave without a memorable parting gift. Specifically, one of the most superbly called defensive plans in Super Bowl history. One that helped New England capture its sixth Lombardi Trophy in a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams and shut down the league’s most celebrated offensive savant in Rams head coach Sean McVay"

    "For more than a month, we’ve seen teams reach for a replica off the McVay assembly line. Then came Sunday night, when Flores shut the operation down. A Flores Foil, if you will, laced with a combination of mixed zone and man pass coverages, six-man fronts to stop the run and a series of stunts that had Rams quarterback Jared Goff on his heels all night.."

    "You could certainly argue this Rams team was a more prolific bunch than the Eagles were last season. Despite boasting the No. 2 offense in the NFL in both yardage and scoring, McVay and the Rams were held to 260 yards and three points. A stunning performance that comes two weeks after the Patriots shut down the league’s No. 1 offense in scoring and yardage – the Kansas City Chiefs"

    So Brian Flores is 100% confirmed the 13th HC of the Miami Dolphins.

    Here's to hoping that a business shirt with his #13 ends up retired and hanging high alongside another #13 shirt of note. :D

    I'll continue the Brian Flores specific information and Tweets in here.

    One thing about Flores is that he has never experienced a losing season as a coach in the NFL. Not one, in thirteen years. It'll be interesting to see how he adjusts to that now.

    It can be difficult to work for a top end organization from the start of your career going forward, and then receive a promotion and/or transfer to a place where they've been having a really hard time, and be tasked with pulling them out of that. I've been in those shoes myself (not in football or coaching), and it can be a lot harder than it might seem.

    5 years guaranteed reallY? I guess Ross likes paying guys after they leave the team for some reason.

    Don't know of this was posted, but Flores went on the Joe Rose show this morning. Here's the audio for that segment.

    Goes into how he doesn't have a specific base defense in mind (prefers multiple defenses), and how he expects all the players to focus on the little details such as a WR blocking, DE setting the edge etc.

    Seems very different from the Adam Gase approach, who I felt was more hands off and laid back regarding the details.

    I guess you can say Philbin was more detail-oriented, but his downfall was that he was a poor leader who couldn't motivate his players and wasn't a great X's and O's guy.

    Flores, on the other hand, looks to possess both Philbin's (detail-oriented manager type) and Gase's (X's and O's) good traits, and hopefully none of their bad traits.

    Sure hope Flores went back to New England and joined the parade! He was a part of it and deserves the celebration before he starts to work in this mess!!

    Mc Vay outcoached himself the second he deferred the coin toss.

    i hope our new HC, staff and GM have a long tenure together. All I ask is please, no reaching for the next Tannehill. Get some DL and LBs that can at least make Brady's last couple of years painful when he plays us.

    So I'll just go out and say that while smart spending should always be a priority, money unspent doesn't help you unless you are rolling it over or preparing for future moves.

    I'd say the key is finding players who continue to have desire AFTER they sign a deal.

    Not saying we should pay top dollar for everyone, far from it, but I also don't want to see us be stingy with talent and pretend it's fine.

    If you can find cheap productive starters do it, but don't only count on players out of the blue performing at multiple key positions. At least not until your system has shown success.

    The amount of the deal is not disclosed. The only detail we know is that he has 5-year, fully guaranteed deal.

    I honestly think Flores has enough pieces to be competitive from day one, provided that his staff can actually coach up and get contributions from the bottom half of the roster guys. Someone said Gase was something like 10-1 in the 11 games he had all his starters fit and ready to play. When you take the view that Gase was essentially a .500 coach in his time in Miami it means Gase wasn’t able to get the job done when the backups had to play. It also means that there should be some low hanging fruit available by getting contributions from the backups.

    I think with his excellent play calling, which some are saying really helped with the Super Bowl win, Flores will enjoy some extra capital in regards to our players' respect. That should help with the wins, especially if some locker room leaders emerge to help keep our players rowing in the same direction. I expect things to improve, but I realize it will probably take some time. I am cool with that as long as the arrow continues to trend upwards over time.

    Not in any way defending Gase but the majority of our backups were sh*t.

    We’re the backups craptacular because of a lack of coaching or a lack of talent?

    When you see guys flash ability and then be inconsistent or suffer mental lapses I tend to think it’s more poor coaching/preparation than poor talent. Take Cordrea Tankersly for instance. In 2017 he showed his talent and played at a high level, that talent didn’t vanish into thin air in 2018, so I regard his regression as a coaching failure.

    It’s not just Tankersly, but a whole bunch of backups have showed something but not translated that into consistent performance. Maybe it’s a lack of preparation, maybe it’s a lack of discipline, maybe its a lack of skill set, maybe they were asked to do things outside their skill set. These are things that good coaching can improve.

    Perhaps. I do believe that Gase's staff was not very good in general so developing players would go hand in hand with that.

    I get the impression Gase and his coaches were more interested in Xs and Os and schematics than in player development.

    Any dude that gets out there and plays football with two broken arms is without doubt a "bad malafala"! It's no wonder the equipment guys refused to give out 13 to any other player til Marino got there.

    Loved his quote when his arms were in casts that he "finds out who his real friends are when he has to go to the bathroom"! LMAO!

    I dont disagree entirely but sometimes it's also just more tape available on a seemingly good player can expose some weakness.

    Gases biggest issue is he doesn't know how to evaluate players, he tied himself to a very flawed qb and is now dealing with the consequences.
