    Meh. I really don’t think many conclusions can be drawn from Flores’ contract. Fans are way too desperate to find hard proof that their answer to all the team’s woes “tank season” is guaranteed.

    I couldn’t be less ambivalent about the situation. Ironically, this may prove to be a good thing, as I was initially kind of excited at the Philbin and Gase hires and look how that panned out.

    BB, Carroll, Gruden and Peyton are north of 8 mil. Doubt Flores is in that company. My guess would be 4-5 mil which guarantees 20-25 mil.

    It really doesn't matter. If he gets fired early we take no cap hit. When it comes to players is a different story but not when it comes to the HC. He'll stay or go based on how he does as a HC and not on his contract.

    It didn’t take the Brown “10 years” to turn it around.

    It took one badass stud QB.

    Sometimes it takes 10 years to realize the obvious.

    Unfortunately it took us 20

    Great.

    Year one is essentially a learning experience and nothing more. I agree that this signals that "tanking" the first year was agreed upon, which makes me very excited going forward.

    Usually the 5th year is an option though and not guaranteed. Personally. It's not part of the team cap so I could care less.

    Gase signed a 5-year. No option for the 5th year.

    I don't really care either. I was just trying to prevent that people read more into it than is really necessary. Coaches like that are basically on a 3 or 4 year contract. Show improvement or you are on the hot seat.

    Maybe it's just a dolphins thing then. I heard on xm radio today that every other coach in the league got a 4 year deal with a team option for 5.
