    This means the Philbin only needs a QB coach and an offensive quality control coach to finish his staff.

    What about Jim Zorn as a possible QB coach? I read yesterday where he probably won't be back with the Chiefs.

    Not really sure, and absolutely no clue on the offensive quality control coach. That guy could come from anywhere, and perhaps that intern from Iowa that was rumored to be hired could fill that role.

    As for QB coach, not sure where they are looking. Tom Rossley and Jeff Jagodzinski were two speculated names.

    Liking the staff Philbin is putting together wwwwaaaaayyyyy more than what Fisher is putting together in St. Louis. Glad we didn't get him. On a side note, it's real funny / ironic that St. Louis has not found a GM yet (it's been a month) despite Fisher's claims that he never wanted final say. :ponder:

    Me thinks things are looking up in Dolphin land......

    Sure looks like Joe is his own man. So much for the BS Mike McCoy was shoveling, eh?
