“(The offensive line coach) comes up with the blocking schemes, comes up with the protection schemes, has input on what goes on in the offense. It is a very technical and difficult job and there are very few good ones around the league,” Schefter said.
Oh, joy! That's encouraging.
Based on our O line play, I'd say those few didn't extend to us anyway.
Meh. Addition through subtraction. Might as well play without a OL coach. He was just a check collector anyways.
Now if someone has a video of Cutler snorting a little white powder (which would explain his zombie-like appearances on the field) I am even more happy.
Not a good coach. We will be better as a result next year and we cant get worse right now
I'm not so sure about that. Gase is already calling offensive plays, now he needs to act as Oline coach too? While also acting as head coach? Seems like he could use some help.
I can certainly understand Gase's loyalty. I like that he sticks by his coaches. Even with Foerster, he wasn't a dick about it. I don't think any assistant coach would want to play for a HC that is constantly churning the staff. Hopefully, that will bode well for us in the future when he is trying to improve his staff.
If we dont bring in a new coach the assistsnt OL coach (played for gase in denver) will step up, not the head coach
A good leader hires the right people for the right job. A good leader also has a backup plan. In this case he should have a capable assistant. Forget the coke sniffing, what if one of the coaches is out with sickness, injury or any other personal issues? The world stops spinning? Gase wants to be a head coach it comes with more responsibilities than just the glory of a victory. The best coaches rise up facing adversity.
Exactly. If I could have fired one position coach after 4 games, it would have been the offensive line coach. This video was/is a blessing.
We've been in scramble mode (the QB) since game 1. Nothing's changed.
I don't know, but I don't buy it. I mean, who would call Foerster 'technically savvy' or savvy period. He couldn't even keep his twenty rolled up tight without it coming apart.
The team is being given an excuse card to play and I highly doubt they play it.
I could be completely wrong, but I just can't fathom how an oline coach is little more than a motivational speaker.
This is more like it.
We've been in scramble mode since Tannehill went down in practice.
That o-line coach sucked...amazing how he was pulling in $2.5 to $3M a year...wow....he didn't do **** for that cash. No wonder he had a hooker on payroll and a serious coke habit.
Coke doesn't make you a Zombie, it does the opposite, Cutler would probably benefit from it.
I'm pretty sure Cutler would have lines of valium...
Does clyde Christensen have o-line coaching experience?
Edit: decided not to be lazy and looked it up.. No he does not.
They’re scrambling to replace our OL coach? Hell, give me a call. I’ll do the same job for half the price
Bottom line, he wasn't getting it done. Miami has three number one picks on the offensive line and it's among the worst in the league. This unit is killing the season. Can't do much worse with anyone out there.
Gase should be looking for upgrades at every coaching position every year where we haven't been performing well. OL has been bad, this may be a blessing.
This. I cannot imagine things getting any worse. There has to be an experienced college guy out there.
Former University of North Dakota and Denver Bronco Chris Kuper is in his 1st year as an assistant offensive line coach and 2nd year with the team. Nothing like throwing him into the fire against the Falcons, next man up as far as I'm concerned. How much worse could it truly get.....
Should be in scramble mode about qb
anything that takes you out of the realm of normality alters your perception of who you are at your job/profession, what you're doing, and how well you're doing it. all drugs make you believe the boat's afloat when the boat is sinking. there's no way he was 'getting it done', as evidenced by his unit's play thru 4 games, and possibly back to the end of last season and the Wildcard game. be honest: he didn't just get up this weekend and start being a cokehead... drugs take commitment; extra marital affairs take commitment. our team will benefit from removing this toxic individual, and can and should expect better from his successor, who if Matt Burke is an indicator of Gase's staffs architecture... should be a very good replacement.
Maybe we can lure baby tuna back ??? He's OL coach MN
The other person who can step up in all of this is Clyde Christensen. If Kuper is now the guy to coach the O-line, Clyde can devote more time to the O-line as part of his duties and be the tough old head in the room.
The other guy who really needs to step up is Mike Pouncey - the natural leader of the O-line and someone who can handle a lot of pressure. Don't be surprised if Pouncey puts in a huge game this week and asserts his leadership. We sure need it.
I don't mind having Sparano back as OL coach. He might have hard feeling toward Ross, but it was years ago, and he should understand 'its just business' given his Italian heritage.
hiring this guy was one of the most questionable staffing hires by gase. red flags all around and reeked of cronyism.
He is coaching offensive line in Minnesota.
Interesting. I don;t follow Dolphins closely during off season. Care to elaborate?
He is a quality OL coach. Get a interim for the time being, and lure him for next season.
there were other coaches out there, with less ... rumors floating around at the time of the hire. Chris was just someone gase had worked with, and hardly an inspired hire. And any coach that puts dallas thomas on the field any time during the season, needs to turn in their coaching card.
The only thing that would be better than the news from yesterday is if a video surfaced today that showed Cutler doing blow off his extremely hot wife's booty, forcing him to resign.
Dante Scarnecchia, He's been making chicken salad out of chicken sh#$ for quite some time
Regardless of other coaching aspects of Gase, an alarming pattern emerged. Gase hirings are not based on ability or performance. It is based on familiarity. Foerster, J Thomas, Manualuga, Culter...
I don't like what I am seeing.
lol did you have to butcher all their names?
Once again the offensive line is ground zero for this teams pitfalls and embarrassments.
Has there been any other NFL team with as much stupid national drama going on over the past few season like we have had? Everything from bullygate to Tunsil wearing a mask while smoking dope to our o-line coach snorting lines of coke. Then add in all the other distractions we've had, from injuries to hurricanes and you have a recipe for disaster.
It really depends on how long your "high" lasts. After that you are a zombie. Maybe Cutler sniffs to early.
Looks like he's been taking horse tranquilizers.
