    The Dolphins’ primary points of emphasis. Analysts Kim Bokamper and John Congemi spoke briefly on those points of emphasis during the latest episode of their Miami Dolphins podcast, “The Audible”.



    Coach Flores has outlined that he wants the Dolphins to be well conditioned and disciplined — harkening memories back to the Don Shula era. The little things can make the difference — especially in the South Florida heat. John Congemi was quick to point that out.

    It's called being a football coach. We haven't had one of those around for a long dry spell. The first thing you do is fundamentals. That was one of Gase's problems. He didn't teach or stress fundamentals and therefore his team was a joke. Gase's way is hang in there, keep it close and win, if you're lucky in the 4th quarter. The right approach is to beat the absolute crap out of your opponent for 60 minutes, right from the opening gun. Shula's teams owned the 4th quarter. That's the tradition that we need to get back to and Flores seems to be just the man to bring it back. Well conditioned, intelligent teams that don't beat themselves have a chance to win a lot of games and for starters, that's who we need to be. We haven't been that team in over 10 years. Once you get over that hump you can fine tune things. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to get there.

    Who knows how Brian Flores will turn out. But he comes from a blue collar background. He observed how a successful franchise is ran for a long time. He's had to work hard for everything he's gotten. That doesn't automatically equal success, but it sure lays a solid foundation for it.

    That’s why I don’t watch really any of the team content. It’s essentially propaganda lol.

    To be fair, I don't think the comparison is Flores to Shula, but their reported goal of fielding a well-conditioned team.

    They aren't comparing them as coaches. Just how hard they work their teams.

    I hope Flores is better than Shula.

    I want him to be Landry, Walsh, Bellicheck. Gotta aim higher.

    I don’t see the comparison, he doesn’t look anything like Shula.

    So true. When Philbin was hired there was a thread comparing him to Bill Walsh

    The proof of the pudding will be how Flores coaches on the field. But I gotta say, so far, I'm pretty damn impressed by his approach and philosophy! :thumbsup:

    Don Shula 328-156, .677 winning percentage and only 2 losing seasons out of 33.

    Tom Landry 250-162, .607 winning percentage and 8 losing seasons out of 29.

    Bill Walsh 92-59, .609 winning percentage and 3 losing seasons out of 10.

    Bill Belichick 54-63, .461 winning percentage and 5 losing seasons out of 7 when QB Tom Brady isn't the starter.
