It seems like everytime that the names that are put out there for a potential HC are always shot down by you fans, who dont seem to ever be satisfied with anyone. It goes along with the impatience and "instant gratification" character of the Miami Dolphin fanbase. It seems that all you fans want are coaches that are beyond our reach. The only candidates you guys seem to be in general agreement with is the Big Three(with of them now running the team already), due to the desire to bring experience and nothing less than a SUPERIOR track record. Anybody, but a first time HC. I dont even seen Sparano given a fair shot by most of you. Here's the truth: !. Schottenheiemer: For one, guy has a poor record in the playoffs, no one knows if he can a team to the Super Bowl. Perhaps if he stayed in SD, who knows, maybe he would have the team seeded higher and thus, more of a contender for the Super Bowl than under Norv Turner this year, and with most likely Cam Cameron still on as Offensive Coordinator. If he would even want to come back to the NFL, would Parcells want him? There's no real connection with the two and they have differing philosophies from running a team to offensive execution, and types of players for the 3-4 defense. Plus, it would be weird him replacing his former apprentice, since Marty always spoke highly of Cameron. I dont think Marty would work well here. 2. Cowher: Then there's Cowher. I would've loved to bring in Cowher before Parcells was in the picture. But we all know how Tuna is, his ego too large to co-exist with Bill, who likely will expect to have GM-like power in the next team he goes to. Plus, he seems to be getting more comfortable at CBS and I dont think he wants to inherit a mess of a team like ours, rather I think he would like to walk into a team thats mediocre and needs a guy like him to take them to the next level. Right now, we need a head coach that wants to be willing to take the time and patience to take the team to the next COUPLE of levels. Saban didn't have that, Cameron didn't execute the blueprint well, and Parcells wants a top-to-bottom type of managing style, not bottoms-up like what we had with Shula, JJ, Wanny, Saban, and to some extent, Cam. Those two big names aside, why is everyone afraid of bringing in a coordinator? Jason Garrent and Josh McDaniels are NOT coming here, which seems to be the only guys you want to come here. There are plenty of good coaches who are unemployed, eventually they can find their niche and become sucessful. Look at Wade Phillips, yes he inherited a team that was mostly built by Parcells, but he could just as easily blown the opportunity like Mike Tice did with the Vikings after Dennis Green was let go. Green, btw, would make a good coach again if he ever got back into it. I also have suggested Al Saunders, and some of you blasted me because his last gig was San Diego in the 80's. People, that was 20+ years ago.The league has changed since. He only got 2 years to do it. He was interviewed for HC jobs and didn't get them, but that doesn't mean that he wasn't offered, maybe he liked working with Vermeil at the time and turned them down?. Saunders, with Vermeil, built two very, very good offenses, in St. Louis and Kansas City. Vermiel's Philly offense was also very good. Remember how bad St. Louis and Kansas City were before those two took over? And look how much they improved. Addtionally, their defenses got better too, although never quite being dominant. What if Parcells doesn't get Sparano? He would have to start looking at Plan B, C, and D. What about the possibility of bring back Vermiel and Saunders, to build the offense? Pick up where Cam left off, and install a respecting, team atmosphere in the locker room at the same time? Imagine how much our offensive line would improve. Imagine how much Beck would improve in offense, the next Warner/Bulger/Grbac/Trent Green? Keep Trent Green as QB coach, and being Saunders as OC, and you basically have the same offense, but better teachers and leaders at the helm. Leaving Parcells, Ireland, and maybe Rex Ryan to look after the defense. How's THAT for an idea?
