    did Foerster want Dallas Thomas and Billy Turner to start last year? That should have been the first sign of substance abuse.

    I thought we were through with dysfunction ... guess I was wrong. Oh well, moving on.

    From an objective point of view, I'd say Foerster's approach was working for Ju'Wuan James ... and nobody else. Now, I realize that we lack talent at guard, and not many coaches are going to get good play there, because we lack the basic talent. But, There is no excuse for how Tunsil is playing, because that guy has phenomenal physical ability, and has shown that he can dominate ... with him it's about motivation, and maybe a new coach can help with that. With Pouncey it's mostly keeping him healthy, but the OL coach doesn't have much input in that. But, Pouncey wasn't playing particularly well lately either, so there's definitely a chance this gets more out of him.

    I guess, I'm just looking for an OL coach who can keep James playing at a decent level and can get more out of the guys than we're seeing now. If they we had a score, and all 5 guys playing up to their potential added up to 100, then I'd say we've seen about a 30 performance-wise. It doesn't take a truly great coach to get that 30 up to around 70 ... and that would fix most of our OL issues.

    Fingers crossed on the "new" OL Coach. Welcome back ... the bar has been set very low. Best of luck.

    He is probably good at not filming himself doing drugs.

    Yeah well I've seen the giants meet at their QB twice with Dante as the coach.

    He’s basically an earthling with experience as an NFL O line coach and a pulse. “You’re hired!”

    That's about how "high" the bar is in Davie. Don't do blow on company furniture while taping yourself to send to a Vegas Hooker. Don't use company computers to surf porn while playing Backstroke Roulette.

    Basically just don't turn your office into Pouncey's house.

    Maybe he can give some technique that we have been badly needing. In Gase we trust(?)

    Also, does he have any Vegas connections.

    Lastly, how stupid is that hooker who is possibly pregnant with Foerster's kid. Now that he's fired, how's that child support gonna go for ya?

    Not sure what he did w the Giants but that would give him 2 SBs (2007).

    Brady dumped 38 times in 2015 and o-line coach is fired. 38 sounds pretty good to Tannehill I'll bet.

    Hopefully just filler until the offseason. Not concerned at this point. Not many options out there right now.

    Always seems like there's so much junk to clean out in Davie. Too often there are players or staff seemingly just enjoying the paycheck and coasting instead of trying to be the best. Will that ever get cleaned up or is it a perpetual cultural problem being in Miami?

    We all know how this is going to play out: new OL coach teaches new technique to players, takes 6 games for players to grasp technique, QB is sacked a million times in those 6 games, we lose the LT for the season with a freak injury, move James over to LT where his play gets considerably worse, WRs still can't create separation, Gase still can't call a pass play beyond 10 yards, Cutler still throws off his back foot, we lose 5 of 6, we question everything that's going on inside and outside of the Dolphins building, we realize there is no Dan Marino to save us from football hell for the 18th consecutive year. Life as a Dolphins fan. I might just order that ugly christmas sweater from the NFL shop.

    He was widely praised his first year there for doing a great job with the line. The following year they used something like 14 starters on an injury depleted line. From what I read, BB didn't really blame him as much as he got tired of the guy complaining about the lack of talent they gave him. I think that's why he got fired. You don't rock the boat in NE.

    Sometimes I wonder if we need an IQ check at the door.
    This is not the offseason. We are in the middle of the season. Who do you people think is currently available?

    Guys he wasnt hired as the Offensive Line coach but senior offensive assistant.
    Think about that.
    This is probably the NFL equivalent of a temp job. Dude will probably bust his *** and get reevaluated at the end of the year while we look for better options.

    Sometimes desperate hires work.

    Not sure if he made any changes, but the line performed well, especially with a back up pivot. I only recall one play where there was a blatant poor line call...the 3rd down at the end of the game where the edge blitzer came unopposed...looks like the line may have shifted to the wrong side.

    Running blocking was good and Cutler had decent time in the pocket.
