    Who are the leading candidates to take over the offense in 2005? Gary Stevens? Sure he can't make chicken salad from chicken sh*t. But he knows this team and we are going cajun in '05!!

    Yes, I am joking. But I figures I would get people going with the Stevens comment. But seriously, who are the leading candidates?

    C'mon!! You guys have speculated on everything from the next Dolphins 1st round draft choice to the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden. I am certain you can throw a few names out there.

    Even though I hated Gary Stevens, that quote is one of my all time favorite coaches' quotes. As far as OC, if I remember Trestman has only coordinated West Coast offenses, correct? If that's true, then :sleep: . Our offense has been moving under Foerster, w/o a good running back. I'd be interested in seeing what he does with a stud RB from the draft. Somehow, I think Saban dumps him.

    Pat Shurmur

    Current Philadelphia Eagle QB Coach. Shurmur was on Saban's staff at Michigan State, and he's a guy who has learned from Andy Reid over the past 5 years and is ready to become a coordinator. He would bring a familiarity with AJ Feeley as well as the Eagles' base offense.

    The best thing would be Fassel, if he doesn't get a head coaching job

    wasn't gary stevens the offensive corr for marino? we never had a running game, but with a good passing game and a good D, we could get a decent running game.

    I think it will be a powerful guy, sort of like a Norv Turner presence. Saban in a Defensive coach, with a lot of power. I think he is going to bring in a guy he can trust with the offense and let him have fun with it.

    Fassel and Shurmur from outside. Tressman from inside. I like the list so far.

    Throw Josh McDaniel's name out there as well. If he doesn't get the promotion to OC in New England, he might be a guy Nick looks at.

    I like the thought of some one from philly coming in if AJ continues to impress. I think the OC is the single most importnat Position for us now since Nick is a Defensive guy.

    Ask yourself one honest question before you say Norv Turner sucked...

    who was Norv Turners boss while he was at Miami?

    I never said Norv was a great Head coach did I? but I certainly think he was HAMSTRUNG by Dave.

    Stevens helped, but Jerry Sandusky called the plays early in Marino's career, and Dave Shula called the plays from aroudn 1986-1988.

    Sandusky was also the OL coach, and he coached Miami's OL from the middle '70s all the way till 1994. He retired in '94, and Shula brought Monte Clark back to coach the OL.

    It was Norv Turner that said the Dolphins could win with Jay Feidler, I believe that Dave asked Norv about Jay before he signed his last contract. Now on the other hand, wasn't it Norv Turner that got Troy Aikman a Super Bowl ring or two?

    Are you sure you aren't thinking of chan gailey? I thought he was offensive corr when we brought Jay in? Regardless it has been wanny's fault that our offensive Corr have never been able to call the plays they really wanted too. Much like Jimmy hiring Kippy brown of all people to call the plays for Dan.

    I thought coaching was about getting the players and the coaches around you that you could trust to do thier job. If you can't trust them, then you need to get someone else. JJ had no trust and wanny didn't either. to me that made them bad coaches. JJ may have done a lot in dallas, but I bet you he trusted the coaches and players around him, something he never did in miami.

    Trust me. You don't want Boudreau back. Beightol, yes. Boudreau, no.

    The reason the 2000 line played so well was Tom Bresnehan, not Paul Boudreau.

    Hal Hunter Sr. was the OL coach in Cleveland when Nick was there, but I believe he is retired now. Hal Hunter Jr. is the OL coach at North Carolina though, and he was actually at LSU before Saban.

    maybe it was Tom Olividotti (spelling?) b/c Shula and Dan knew we would need 35+ points to win each week. :D

    I was talking about Jays contract now, not the first one he signed with the Dolphins. His first one was with Chan Gailey.

    Chan and Dave decided on Jay, and I wish I could confirm this, but I would bet good money that nobody buy dave decided to resign Jay. Certainly not Norv Turner who basically left because Jay limited him on the plays he could call, and dave told him the plays that he wanted norv to call.

    Yeah. Boudreau was coaching Jacksonville's line last year though. Carolina's OL coach is Mike Maser.

    Thats true! I think Tom in in charge of the KC defense these past two seasons. Trent Green has to play like a Hall of Famer just to get a simple win. :)

    Chan brought Jay in, but I think he signed a two year deal then. When Dave brought in Norv, he asked him if the Dolphins can win with Jay and Norv studied film and said yes. Thats when the Dolphins re-signed Jay to his current deal. I have no proof of that other than what I read at the time thru ESPN/Sporting News and other media things. But O'well. Jays gonna be a goner soon anyway.

    That conflicts with reports that Norv was mad that he had to scale back the offense because of the QB play we had. I don't believe Norv was ever a Fiedler fan, but he knowns that with a strong D and strong running game, you can win witha bus driver QB.

    That's John Sandusky, not Jerry. We've never had a coach named Jerry Sandusky
