    Billick would be a better option and choice then Fisher imo and yet he isn't even getitng a interview from Ross and company. Anyone know why? His credentials are more impressive then Fisher and one more important thing: He said multiple times, he would be willing to inerview for this job. Last time I looked, not many coaches were dying to get a interview for this job. So what gives? Has he been black-balled or something? This is pretty pathetic. With that list of candiates we have and yet Brian Billick cannot get one measley interview. Wow, just speechless I am.

    Because they'd rather look at the ****ing Jets defensive coordinator for some reason.

    Billick seems to have a short fuse and he's too old. I'd rather have Fisher.

    Billick is 57, Fisher is 53.

    Honestly, this age stuff is getting ridiculous; regarding both coaches and players.

    Billick is feeble thinking...old and set in his ways, that's what I meant by old.

    it is early. since the season ended, how many teams have had more head coaching interviews than the dolphins. this isnt outback steakhouse where they interview 30 people a day. give it time, maybe billick is scheduled, they just havent announced it.

    How do you figure that? He seems to be an extremely adaptive coach. He led Minnys offense to record setting seasons. He than went to Baltimore and allowed his DC to build one of if not the greatest defenses ever. His second to the last season he was unhappy with how his OC and good friend Jim Fassel was running the offense. He decided to fire him and call the plays himself leading to a 13-3 record. If anything, for better or worse, it seems to me that Billick is adaptive to change based on his personnel and/or players

    You ever watch the Coaches Show? He is well spoken, intelligent, and coherent. Traits that have been missing from a Miami head coach for the last 16 years.
    He is a great fit in my estimation, a perfect choice to pair with Mike Nolan.
    They are interviewing special teams coaches, coordinators, interim coaches, and a head coach that really doesn't want this job.
    Not exactly instilling confidence in me so far.
    If they do not interview him, they are doing a dis-service to the Miami Dolphins.

    I would take Billick in a second over Fisher. I thought Billick got a raw deal in Baltimore. When the guy was there the team had no quarterback. Then after he loses his job they draft Flacco! The guy is a winner in my book.

    I think they'll go after Billick if Fisher turns them down. Toub's not a realistic option. His contract is up in Chicago and they probably want him to take over for Darren Rizzi.

    Hopefully he will be and soon. I've done almost a 180 on him in the last month or so and now believe that age reflects experience, insight, wisdom and some introspection thanks to a broadcast booth overview. I think this downtime as been valuable as he was just tired by the time the Baltimore gig ended and now is both rejuvenated and actually, wonder of wonders, wants our job!

    As the MN OC his unit broke a bunch of offensive records and he'll be happy to work with Nolan. Unfortunately Boller sucked, but after winning the SB with Dilfer, he knew enough not to stand pat so he knows the value of QBs. He's now officially #2 with a Bullet on the Vaark Hit Parade!

    I'm still not sold on him. He can only live on his reputation as an offensive genius with Minny in 98 for so long with me.

    He won a super bowl with the Ravens and the team had Dilfer as a quarterback! I don't know if Billick had any say in who the Ravens drafted year after year. If the guy didn't have any say in who they picked in the draft then you can't blame him for not winning. If it was between Fisher and Billick then I would go Billick! At least the guy shows some kind of emotion on the side lines unlike Fisher!

    Hire Billick to be head coach, and bring in Mike Martz(resigned today) to run the offense...happy now?

    He has no offensive talent in Baltimore. Kyle Boller, are you kidding me? Remember, he wasn't the personnel guy there, it's Ozzie Newsome.

    This is complete speculation but im wondering if Peterson is in anyway preventing a Billick interview. For better or worse, Billick is a very intelligent person but he is also very arrogant and very opinionated. Is King Carl purposely trying to avoid having that type of personality as coach? Im not saying Fisher is a pushover but i think Billick has a much stronger personality. From what i hear Peterson can be a bit tyrannical and if thats the case is he trying to avoid having a coach that may challenge him? As i said, its complete speculation but it has me thinking.

    Maybe Miami is using their brains and using Billicks intrest in Miami against Fisher. If Fisher knows that Billick wants an interview, we should be dangling that over Fisher and saying...."look, we want you, but we have a SB winning coach that wants this job as well, are you a Dolphin?"

    If that is the case we will never have a winning organization.
    If all the leaders want marsh mellow men under them, we will never improve.
    I don't think Peterson is like that, but I think that precisely describes Ireland.

    I don't think that will work. If anything it is the other way around.
    There are more coaching jobs available than their are coaches.
    The game playing, if true, will get the team nowhere.

    Maybe Billick is a prick and everyone in the biz knows it. What the heck do we really know? This stuff is getting hilarious.

    Brian Billicks career was effectively derailed by Kyle Boller. Billick was supposed to be an offensive genius; and wasnt able to ever develop Boller as a pro-level quarterback. Would he be a good fit in Miami? who knows - but - he is better than some of the other coaches that have floated in and out of dolphintown since JJ left for the Keys. Cant hurt to bring him in and have ireland ask him if his momma was a stripper.

    He has not gotten any interviews since leaving the Ravens. I wonder why? I mean if he is that good of a coach you would think that someone would at least interview him, right?

    He may have said he wasn't interested in returning to coaching or it's possible that he has an agent who gets the word out that BB demands total control of all fb decisions.. Just surmising. I'd rather have him than Toub or Mangini.

    That is the point I was trying to make. I think he is the coach we need in here. With him and Nolan back together, they could take this defense to elite status.
