Meet Dolphins' best GM contender, and top candidate-who-isn't; plus 2 views of struggling Heat, M.Obama dunks on LeBron, defending Richard Sherman & more

The Dan Le Batard Show struggles without me today. 2) In The Previous Blogpost (ITPB): Broncos-Seahawks in Super Bowl with poll, early SB betting trends, Martin Luther King Jr. & more. 3) Follow us on Twitter @gregcote and also on Instagram, Vine and Facebook.

ON THE DOLPHINS' LONG, BROAD, WEIRD, CONTINUING GENERAL-MANAGER SEARCH: Thus far Miami has had interest in 11 men for the job of replacing Jeff Ireland and has interviewed seven, reportedly with more possibly yet to come. This is a long search. The fact Miami does not have a personnel boss in place and that presence at this week's Senior Bowl is being tsk-tsk'd by many in the league (even though it isn't a huge deal). There is speculation Miami is not getting top candidates because people mistrust the leadership structure, even though owner Stephen Ross has said the new man would have "autonomy" over the roster, meaning free-agency and draft decisions. We look at the team's top actual candidate for the GM job, and the top candidate who isn't:

THE TOP ACTUAL DOLPHINS' GM CANDIDATE: RAY FARMER: [Click on The Case For Farmer for today's latest column by me] Ray Farmer, the Browns' assistant general manager after six years as the Chiefs' 1aa1farmerraydirector of pro personnel in 2006-12, is the best man for the job among actual contenders, according to, well, says me. Farmer (pictured) is young (39), smart (Duke), a former player (Eagles), and seen as a rising young star among NFL talent evaluators. And, not insignificantly, he is African-American. The Dolphins could use that diversity, in that role. This is the franchise that once interviewed but did not hire coach Mike Tomlin because they thought he was "too hip-hop." This is the franchise whose previous GM alienated many blacks by asking Dez Bryant in a pre-draft interview if his mother was a prostitute. Farmer should be hired first on qualifications -- don't mistake that -- but he also could help Miami gain back credibility in the way the club is perceived. The Dolphins, a club source told me, envision that Farmer could become the next Ozzie Newsome, who made champions of the Ravens after becoming, in 2002, the NFL's first-ever African-American GM.

THE TOP CANDIDATE WHO CURIOUSLY ISN'T: SCOTT PIOLI: You know what Scott Pioli, the most accomplished former and available general manager around, is doing these days? Working for NBC Sports 1aa1pioliand the network's Pro Football Talk as what they gruesomely call "an informationalist." Pioli (pictured) wants back in the league. There is speculation the Texans may be interested. Why not Miami? Pioli is a Bill Belichick protege who helped turn the Jets from a 1-15 team in 1996 to 12-4 by '98, then helped Belichick win three Super Bowl with the Patriots. His most recent time with the Chiefs was not nearly as successful; he was fired Jan. 4, 2013. Nevertheless, his resume is loud. He'd be a heavyweight hire. Certainly you'd think he'd at least be interviewed. So why no Dolphins interest? Pioli is the man who replaced Carl Peterson as Chiefs' GM, and Peterson is now Stephen Ross' confidant leading the GM search. A Dolphins source also told me that Pioli's long, very close friendship with Belichick, Miami's main AFC East adversary, would make him an "odd, awkward" hire.

Poll result: Loving Peyton. All Broncos in Super Bowl: We asked in the last blogpost who'll win the SB (you may still vote), and it was Broncos swamping Seahawks by 72.9 percent to 27.1%.

TWO WAYS TO VIEW HEAT: Miami is 5-5 in its past 10 games, giving up 113 points on average in those losses. Last night meant the Heat have now lost 4 of the past 6 games... The hand-wringing worrier says: "These defensive issues and Dwyane Wade missing so many games makes me doubt a three-peat. It's as if we're coneding the No. 1 Eastern seed to Indiana and just hoping to find that 'On' switch in the playoffs. It's concerning." The preening grinner says: "C'mon! Relax. We've seen this movie before. The regular season doesn't matter. The defense will gel. As long as LeBron laces 'em up, no worries." So. Which fan are you right now?

M. Obama dunks on LeBron: OK, sort of. Well, not really. But Erik Spoelstra, Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen were taping a PSA on fitness and healthy earting at the White House last week, when Michelle Obama and LeBron James photobombed the thing. Click HERE to watch.

DEFENDING RICHARD SHERMAN: Seahawks star cornerback trashes 49ers' Michael Crabtree in on-field 1aa1arshermaninterview immediately after Sunday's game and fans and media go ballistic. A few things here. Yeah, Sherman (pictured) personally criticizing an opponent was classless and, as much, egotistical. But you just caught him in the emotional aftermatch of the biggest play and biggest game of his life. And we can't have it both ways, media. We rightly criticize athletes for banal, cliche comments ... then get outraged when they say something that is quotable. Real emotion is sometimes volatile and raw. This was. Sherman has sinec apologized to Crabtree. Time to move on. Alas, Sheman's tirade will continue to be a Super Bowl Week Chewing Point, so settle in and get used to it.

Un Chardo! I don't think so, Cote.

It is a shame that even if the Dolphins get the brightest and best GM candidate to come to work for them he will start with a very large handicap with Philbin and company coaching.

Ross did the right thing when he got rid of Ireland, but keeping Philbin is like having two flat tires on your car and only changing one. I think that Philbin's presence with the team will have a negative influence on the crop of GM candidates.

Zulu, just go along with Cote, bra. Let's hire a black GM "Because the Dolphins could use the diversity." Well, that same criteria got us that imbecile Obama.

How about we just hire the best MOFO to do the job whether he's black, white, brow, yellow, or tutti fruty.....well, not tutti fruty, after all we're running a football team not an interior design company.

Feel free to blow me, Cote.

Farmer should be hired first on qualifications -- don't mistake that -- but he also could help Miami gain back credibility in the way the club is perceived.

Guy has a degree from Duke and is considered a bright up and coming executive no surprise you wouldn't consider him qualified. They aren't hiring a GM now anyway they are hiring a talent evaluator and he seems to fit that description.

Ross is not too bright, Pioli would make perfect sense for this team...he should have interview a long time ago, having said that this guy Farmer would be a good choice also...I think.

Hey..Zulu..watched it dude, the "new ostrich" crew will be coming after you soon..hehe

hey, since the Heat traded J Anthony they are like 1-4..no bueno.

Cote wrote in referene to Farmer...and I quote.

"The Dolphins, a club source told me, envision that Farmer could become the next Ozzie Newsome, who made champions of the Ravens after becoming, in 2002, the NFL's first-ever African-American GM."

I think his source was the janitor.

They aren't hiring a GM they are hiring a talent evaluator. Seems like people around the league just aren't getting that. Hire someone competent at roster evaluation and drafting and the team will be fine we have a QB. It's not going to be a hard job just be more competent than Jeff Ireland the bar has been set pretty low at this point.

for those of you that have been hard on my boy Tanny, he was the 7th ranked QB by PFF this past season..

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-dolphins/sfl-hyde5-tannehill-ranked-7th-via-pff-stats-20140121,0,2116002.story

not bad at all considering he had no offensive line or a running game.

7 points combined in two must win games to make the playoffs. Sorry, bra, but that's the bottom line.

"There are lies, damn lies, and statistics."

Mark Twain

Cock, I am with you ...Black/purple/yellow ..just get the best guy.....But unfortunately as long as we have a CLOWN FOR AN OWNER ...WE ARE DOOMED...


BB really ??!@#$

We have a QB?!@#$.....You are calling Chad Henne 2.0 our QB.....WOW......& you talk about setting the bar low....

Time to clean house.

BB..they are hiring a GM, the guy would have final say on the roster which should include the draft, final say on roster sopts and free agency but the best talent evaluators/GM candidates that are available won't come here to interview because Ross has a man-crush on Philbin and won't let the new guy fire him.

sometimes the best thing to do is hit the reset button and start over..which is what they should do.

Calling Tannehill our starter of the future yes he beat what 4 AFC playoff teams this year? Guy was sacked 58 times and threw for almost 4000 yards I give him the benefit of the doubt at this point. He can make all of the throws teams knew exactly what plays we were running the last few games of the year that much has become clear.

Orange...leave my boy Tanny alone.

FZ,
Proof positive that stats do not tell the whole story..
If your going by that PFF stat then Tom Brady & Aaron Rodgers is behind Talleywhacker & honestly who would you rather have at QB.....

You don't have to go by just PFF stats he threw as many tds as Andrew Luck behind a historically bad oline. His td numbers would have been in the 30's behind a decent oline.

Do not discount injuries to Keller and Gibson either. Yes I know every team has injuries but think of the numbers if those guys are in there behind a good oline.

BB..the Tanny haters will always be there but we both know we have our franchise QB..no problemo.

QB metrics aren't perfect but there is something to Tannehill being ranked so high by PFF. His rating also went into the 80's this season I fully expect it will be around 90 or higher with a year more of experience and more diverse play calling.

Just appoint the cunt of Monte Cristo to the GM Position....
It worked for Jonah Hill in "MoneyBall" Why not try in football??
Ms. Aponte has held several Position through her life, I say Give her a Chance....
HEHEHE

oye Orange..I know Tanny is no Brady who's a once in a lifetime QB but you honestly think Brady would have had the Dolphins in the C-Game with our offensive line and lack of a running game?

Much like Allen Iverson & now Kevin Durant....If Talleywhacker attempts 50 times a game he is going to put up stats....

& BB last time I checked Andrew Luck has made it to playoffs last 2 years - Talleywhacker total playoff appearances 0....Hell even RG3 got into playoffs last year...

& don't give me that team B.S.....He had to win 1 out of 2 games & his magical stats for those "pressure games" 1 Td & 3 Int.....7 total Points & a QB rating of 42.1 & 45.1.....

There's only one position that has served Ms. Aponte well in her career and it was on all fours with her ass pointing to the sky.

I'm not a Tan hater I thought he had a good season, but after two years, I'm starting to believe Kaz when he used to say that he's just a game manager. I don't see the "necessities" as my good friend Al Campanis used to say.

4 Ever, that's absolutely the bottom line and you sir, have it completely correct on Tannehill.

For those who like stats put this in your Colorado bong:

Dan Marino - 61,361 yds - 420 Td's -Superbowl wins - 0
Fran Tarkenton - 47,001 yds - 342 Tds- Superbowl win -0
Brad Johnson- 29,054 yds - 166 Td's - Superbowl win - 1
Trent Dilfer- 20,518 yds - 113 Td's - Superbowl win- 1


Do you think that Dan & Fran would trade there stats for a Superbowl win......

Maybe stats are pretty good though. Everyone knows Dan was the Man regardless of superbowl wins. Fran on the other hand went to more he maybe should have come up a little bigger in big games. those other guys are a product of playing for a team with a championship defense.

Stats are for math geeks & rings are for champions....

Yes well I saw Wolf of Wallstreet yesterday with my better half. It was entertaining. It was best thing Scorsese has done with DiCaprio imo. However, I and my wife both felt like we were watching Casino only with Quaaludes, in fact MASSIVE amounts of drugs instead, of Pesci's relentless repulsive over the top ultra-violence. OC, ultimate cage match would be Alexander DeLarge vs Pesci's characters from Goodfellas or Casino...

& Yes BB for once we agree....Dan was the Man......

Very hard to win when you put up 45 points and the other team puts up 47 on a consistent basis....

Then when you finaly do get a defense to help you out later in your career your idiot coach handicaps you by not letting you call audibles at the line of scrimmage & makes dumd ass draft picks like John Avery over Randy Moss....

Oh yes there was alot of sex in Wolf of Wallstreet too if you're into that sort of thing eh Anti. Noticed between language and debauchery some patrons got out of theatre fairly early on. Not ole dukey. I ah stayed the course...

FZ,

On a brighter note - T-minus 10 days and counting till my old lady finally gets the green light to go weight bearing on the surgically reapaired leg....Hopefully life will get back to normal....IT has been 3 months of domestic hell....

Oh those 45-38 Buffalo playoff losses still think of them every time the playoffs come around like a bad dream...

Huh don't know where my post previous to my 1:06 post went in which I critique Wolf of Wallstreet. Could I have forgotten to post it? Yes...

I still see Thurman Thomas running that friggin screen pass in my nightmares....You knew it was coming & they still couldn't stop it....

BB got the memo, and it's obvious the rest of you did not. Philbin is a good enough coach to have Ross hold him to an ultimatum to get the team into the playoffs, or else. Had he fired Philbin along with Ireland, as you guys post, we would all be staring at a complete rebuilding job. That's four years minimum!

Take FZB's wish for instance and say Ross hires someone like Pioli to run the team as he sees fit. That means Pioli hires HIS coach, drafts and trades for HIS players, has his new coach install a new playbook, including perhaps even a new QB who the NEW regime would claim would be required to win THEIR way. Do any of you really think the fan base is willing to wait that long? That a new "strong" GM would not enact exactly what I just described above. A minimum four year rebuilding plan!?

Given the circumstances, Ross is playing this the only way he can. He has in place a no nonsense player/contract expert, a HC he trusts and who will be implementing the third leg of his program. That's assistants, plays, players and a QB who the whole organization seems pleased with.

Ross knows that all that he simply needs to do to continue to steer his organization into fielding the best possible chance at getting into the playoffs NOW, not in four or five years is to hire, as BB correctly points out, the best possible talent evaluator he can get. One who would be willing to wear the title of GM, while knowing full well the extent of his limitations.

Remember the one year we had a real good shot @ not even facing those bastards when Houston got up by 30 points or something in Buffalo & we wouldnt have to face them...Then friggin Frank Reich goes apeshit in 2nd half & Moon chokes his ass off....

Oh theres another QB with monster stats never even made it to a superbowl... Moon...

OC, I take it from that latest post that your interview with the Cunt of Monte Cristo didn't go that well did it?

I remember talking to my friend on the phone during one of those Buffalo games I had just turned it on was late and Miami was losing despite scoring almost 40. What the heck is going on here I asked him? It's the Swiss Cheese defense Miami is playing dude. Still makes me laugh thinking about it today boy did we have some Swiss cheese defenses in those days.

OC,

Your 4 year theory does not hold water......

How do you explain The 49'ers turnaround when Harbaugh got hired?? went from 6-10 the year before he was hired to the NFC Championship game...

dukey- I thought the wolf of wall streat was a good movie. We had a few people leave early also. What did these people think it was, a disney movie.

They had talent on board, OB4

& I dont know about you guys, but I will gladly give up going to the playoffs next season if you can consistently reach the playoffs every year & not be just a flash in the pan like we did in 2008 with Pennington.

Build a winner for years to come....but unfortunately with this owner I do not think that is ever gonna happen.

It shouldn't be strange to you that Scott Pioli isn't being considered a top choice by the Dolphins for GM. Ross wants a weak GM who doesn't have the power to hire or fire the head coach and who has no control over Dawn Aponte. Pioli would want the same reponsibilites and power he had with other teams. Therefore, the team is not considering him or any other candidate that needs such control. That's why none of the people being considered have previous experience as GM's because they don 't want a real GM. They want a personnel guy who can be controlled by Aponte & Philbin.

You don't even have to go that far. This year KC went from worse to first. Last year Colts went from worse to first. And over 30 years ago Don Shula came here and took a lousy Dolphins team to the playoffs and a 10-4 season in his first year on the job.

The one thing that is consistent in life is that "there are no 4 or 5 or whatever year plans. The Russians and that SOB Fidel are perfect examples of state planning failures.

Good coaches come in and turn teams around.

Time to clean house.

OC, you need to go down to the Big Tex supermarket and go to the red kiosk and rent the movie Patton. Put it in your cd player and make sure that you pay close attention to the first 15 minutes or so of the movie. Now, "that's" how you turn a team around.......

...and keep in mind, OB4, Trent Baalke was promoted from within the organization, and I borrow from Wikipedia... "His official promotion to General Manager came shortly after the firing of Mike Singletary as head coach of the 49ers, in anticipation of needing an official GM to lure Jim Harbaugh away from Stanford for the vacant coaching position."

First of all, we are already doomed since only a brain dead moron would have a woman doing anything but choosing the curtains in a football organization or dispensing blow jobs by the water cooler. End of story.

I'll make sure the Mrs. reads all your posts today, Woodcock. I'm sure her impression of you will only improve.

Long and short of my critique of Wolf of Wallstreet. It was entertainting, perfect role for DiCaprio BUT it felt alittle like Casino on quaaludes minus Pesci's ultra-violence...

The facts are what they are, OC. The same way that you wouldn't have a guy stripping at the Wild Goose you wouldn't have a chick running a football team. They don't have, as my good friend Al Campanis used to say, "The necessities."

Dawn "The Cunt of Monte Cristo" Aponte, "She's a lovely lady and my apologies to her....."

Btw, OB4, don't confuse my stance on all of this to suggest that I think Philbin is all that. I'm simply stating that Ross has only the one choice. All of us on here should know full we'll by now what three consecutive weak-ass coaching administrations should have taught us.

You hire a proven winner as your HC and you let him run the show. Not...Not hire some pompous GM to run things and who conveniently points fingers when inevitably things don't go the way he planned.

You hire a Shula, a Landry, a Walsh, or Belichick. A great QB may get you one here or there (see this year), but for multiple, consistent playoff runs an organization needs a strong, proven winner running the show.

Margaret's Thatcher must have been a sight propped up on all fours!

my oh my...Woody, I want the bitch out too but geezzzus.

Ross doesn't have the "cojones" to do the right thing, this band aid chit has to stop sometime, make a clean break, fire everybody and let's get on with it.

Philbin is not the answer, the guy flat out failed to have his team ready to play the last two games of the year, that's what told me that the guy is not THE RIGHT GUY, he sucks.

Keep waiting for the Tooth Fairy, FZB. Just don't be surprised when he turns out to be your uncle Manuel wearing a tutu.

So tell me, who is this new, proven, "can't miss" HC you are willing to flush everyone down the toilet for?

And don't tell me about some GM, cause you know I don't prescribe to that approach.

Funny Greg the first word I thought of when I saw the Sherman rant was also classless. Just a me first guy despite the apology the ball was a bit underthrown anyway nice play but someone else intercepted the ball richard not you.

Obama, Michelle Obama, and LeBron all metioned in the same paragraph Cote must be pleasuring himself as he writes.

Big Baby- No, I think Belichick is making a mountain out of a mole hill. welker was trying to get out of the way to my eyes. I would love to know the real reason of his bitterness. It has to be more then the contract. Something had to of been said by him or his agent.

Hey Woodchuck er Woodcock, for the record I don't care what color the next GM is if he is worth a crap. Unfortunately he will still have Philbin coaching.

And as far as the socialist Kenyan in the White House, he is the most incompetent, biggest lying, most despicable criminal that has ever held a high public office.

So, let's all just hope that Ross can somehow con a good GM to work here, and if Philbin continues his lackluster performance that Ross fires him mid season. Lot's to wish for.

well now, it seems that my fire Philbin revolution is taking hold..ok now, let's keep it going kids.

OC, what you and BB and Tommy-son (the new ostrich crew) don't seem to get is that Philbin is just not as good a coach as we all thought he was.

FZ, a name calling response from you doesn't answer the question. It is clear that it is you who "don't seem to get it."

Are you just figuring that out now??

OC, I hope that Philbin turns it around and becomes the next Lombardi/Shula combined and I have to come here and apologize to the guy but based on what I saw those last two games?..I'm not holding my breath.

on the ostrich comment, no offense meant, just a take on what my friend Tommy-son used to call me..chill.

Tin foil, no, not really. I just prefer to cut well intentioned posters some slack.

FZ, the crux of my argument is that Ross has spent whatever patience the fan base had left in reserve with the approach of letting Ireland pretty much run things. He now can ill afford watching two, three, four more years fielding a crappy team, with the promise and hope that the new regime will deliver come year four. He has to leave Philbin and hold his feet to the fire. If Philbin fails to deliver a playoff team in 2014, he will be fired and the fan base will be more accepting of a new start.

The smarter of the two options is to let it ride.

As usual the voice of reason on this blog.

Ok I see why my reviews of Wallstreet haven't been permitted through Jimmy Olsen's bobbed wire. Not because of language but because I might be ruining it for others??? I don't know...

Ok, ok alittle cat and mouse eh Cote. Now my earlier posts concerning Wolf of Wallstreet are back. Perhaps I'm just losing my mind which wouldn't be losing much...

OC..I have been a Dolphins fans since forever, I will continue to be a Dolphins fan no matter what, what I want is for my team to start winning on a regular basis, the fan base will go along with any changes if they bring in hope, keeping PHilbin doesn't give me any.

by keeping this guy around is just going to extend the agony we all feel, more than likely Philbin won't do anything and will have to be replaced next year anyways, you guys need to read the article B Jackson wrote and that David posted about how the players feel about our coaches, its depressing.

http://dolphinstruth.com/philbin-power/ Best Dolphins Chat Room arounD

You guys still talking about the Fins? Masochists...

It's in my name, duker. It would be as difficult as asking duker von pucker not to puke.

Margaret Thatcher was a man in drag, OC.

OC, FZB's Uncle Manuel is in the interior design business?

Excellent comment, BB. Sherman tipped the pass but it was a tremendous hustle play by the Seahawks LB (who is getting no props and in fact I don't even know his name) who mad an incredible play leaving his man and being there to catch the tipped ball. Just a great, great, play by one of the unsung heroes of what was a tremendous effort by Seattle's defense on Sunday.

Oye..my uncle Manuel es cherna..yup, but I gotta tell you OC is a bit "sensitivo" as of late, take it easy with him, ok meng?

My good friend OC's post at 3:49, "though well intentioned" is tantamount to arguing to leave a fresh steaming turd alone in the middle of the hallway and let people pass it by for two weeks in the hope that it will stop smelling and become a freshly grilled bratwurst.

Sorry, OC. Life doesn't work like that, once a fish always a fish.

Who s minding the store?Is anyone representing Miami at the Super Bowl.Ross and Philbin are out of town?Too funny.The list of candidates is underwhelming to say the least.Guess we ll wind up with the JAX GM.That seems like a successful franchise with a successful QB in Ross eyes I guess.I didn t know Ross pal Petersen walked on water and was the all-knowing.Man the advice this guy provides Ross seems kind of scary.

Pardon me gents...as I meant Senior Bowl.Hehhehheh.

I don't have to read the article, I saw him up close and personal in the HBO show last year. The episode where he was upset about the little candy wrappers on the floor did it for me. Anal A types like this, who are a dying breed as natural selection and evolution take place, are ok for a few rigid industries like the sciences, accounting, etc., places were their rigid mind sets work like an automaton to keep the little beans all marching neatly in line towards the big boiling kettle, but for a job that requires managing 52 separate individuals and molding them into one cohesive unit that quality usually fails miserably.

Bye bye, Philbin, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, buddy. He might be fine as an Xs and Os guy who has all the tapes of the games put away in a neat little pattern arranged by date, alphabetical order, and color and shape of the DVD jewel box, but for making decisions and adjusting on the go in a game a rigid A type personality will usually get destroyed.

In life you have to be water and seek the path of least resistance and understand that chaos theory is what makes the Universe work.

I already looked into my crystal ball and its telling me Ross is going to hire Brian Gaines as our next puppet GM, he was Ireland's assistant but has a good reputation around the league as a talent evaluator which is what clueless Ross is looking for.

so there, I'm breaking the news here on who our next GM is going to be...you're welcome.

Who cares if the GM is black white or Tartan coloured. Why does diversity matter? All that matters is making the best personnel decisions. Diversity is stupid criteria.

Because morons like Cote think that style over substance and mindless symbolic idealism over good old fashioned common sense is the way to go, ergo, the moron currently residing wanking off every day at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Yea, let's institute another freaking plastic bag ban in the supermarket so that my $200 dollars worth of grocery falls through the bag and hits the driveway when I get home.

God, there ought to be a law.....

FZB you are so funny. Unfortunately you plagiarize all your good material. OSTRICH CREW? You, my misguided friend, are a founding member of the OSTRICH CREW.

I have something for you that might help.

http://s1.hubimg.com/u/8139356_f520.jpg

Hey just a question. Why is it you never advocated for Philbin to be fired until that asshole son of yours was sent packing? just wondering

Rosso the puckered anus face clown is running this circus. Rosso is in it to make a profit. Not a small profit, but a HUGE profit. That way, Rosso can then donate another $500 million to MIIIIICHIGAN for more tampon dispensers. Sports team owners in it for HUGE profits usually fail. Look at Loria and Samson. How'd that work out? Cue the clown music.....

looking back perhaps I was a bit premature in calling for everyone to get fired at the end of the year, I did it out of frustration and the embarrassement from bully-gate, I mean, chit..everyone was laughing at us but Philbin has held the team together and the guys are playing hard for him.

Posted by: FZB | December 16, 2013 at 12:31 PM

How true FZB. But now because of two games you want to fire Philbin. Come on dude, Philbin has been miles better at his job than Ireland and you wanted to give that asswipe 8 freaking years.

Now don't go off eating those mushroom and hallucinating, FZ. Ireland has just adopted a variation of Sparano's dictum. He's agonizing along anally.

Posted by: OC Dolphin | December 20, 2013 at 01:29 PM

Sorry FZB. Couldn't help myself. That is one ffing funny post by OC.


Obama, Michelle Obama, and LeBron all metioned in the same paragraph Cote must be pleasuring himself as he writes.

Posted by: Big Baby | January 21, 2014 at 02:22 PM

Post of the day..............

Hey now...I was onboard with keeping Philbin until those last two games..

Same here. "Reluctantly."

And yes..I was a founding member of the Ostrich crew but I'm out on parole now and you,BB and OC are permanent residents .

Has clueless Ross named B Gaines as the new GM?...tick,tick,tick,tick.

Yet...hehe

I don't know but it seems like he should at this point.

I think it was safety Earl Thomas that made the int Woodcock but thanks for recognizing Sherman is an intelligent CB he does his homework. He isn't the most athletic guy on the field but he makes up for it in preparation. How about a little humility then.

The Dolphins had a former head coach in Mobile, Ala. during the Senior Bowl practices on Tuesday. Nick Saban attended the practices as he often does and did when he was the Dolphins coach.

The Dolphins did not, however, have a current coach in Mobile for practices or the interviews with players that happen afterward. Head coach Joe Philbin stayed in South Florida as did all his coaches.

Philbin was the only AFC East coach not attending.

New England's Bill Belichick, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan and Buffalo coach Doug Marrone were all at the Senior Bowl. Marrone took his entire staff. Ryan gave his assistants the option of attending or taking a vacation week. And Belichick did not have his assistants attend.

Anyone else need a sledge hammer to the head that the Owner,Coach and anyone else associated with this franchise is far removed from reality??????

Anti, no one around the NFL can figure out what we are doing, no GM at the senior bowl, also we are the only team that has no coaches attending the practices or interviewing players, its a joke.

Ross is clueless...but I guess some of you guys think otherwise...oh well.
