    At least he didn't say for Tannehill!

    Totally agreed. That type of honesty was kind of a breath of fresh air in an industry that typically uses nothing but coach speak. No BS fluff about having a good core group of guys.

    I think it can be done by stating right away "we are building from the ground up - if you want to be a part of it follow me". If a player can't get on board with long term goals, barring a vet close to retirement which we shouldn't be chasing anyway, then maybe he's not a good fit.

    It's going to be a bumpy road. Hopefully the Miami media doesn't get to him too much. It was trying to find previous press conferences from Flores.

    All signs indicate this dude did a pretty solid job handling the D against 3 top offenses and

    let's be real he's not gonna come in here and put the focus on himself -- it is a huge TEAM game.

    I think most players want the satisfaction of playing in a strong team environment -- which as Flores

    stated -- does not negate individuality. I like his quiet demeanor and undercurrent of confidence --

    which equals composure in my book -- not a bad quality to project from the top down. I also like

    the simple fact he's all about work ethic -- and if he's seen anything in NE it's the simple fact the

    most talented group of individuals (lacking team focus dedicated HARD WORK) will not win

    championships. Sure, we all know you've got to have the horses to be competitive but

    team chemistry and top down focus on hard work/dedication (lots of film study and

    out-prepare the competition) seems to be a predictable "winner."

    Now we get to see... And I think the product on the field is going to be a LOT different

    than we've grown accustomed to. I fully expect we'll lose a LOT next season due to roster purge

    youth movement but I don't see us playing the same kind of "Sybil inspired" football...

    Last, I'm not of the persuasion that we have to "tank" and wind up with a top 3 pick next year

    to turn this franchise around and land the "promised land" QB. This dude just proved

    you can still win with great D and a rock sold team dynamic.

    BNF. Totally committed to the optimistic outcome...

    He doesn't strike me as the personality-type who they'll WANT to get on - he appears very humble, grounded, and genuine. Just that will buy him more time than say, an Adam Gase-type would get before they pounce.

    Dang, some tough standards by some Dolphin fans.

    Flores literally 20 hours before hadn't even started calling plays for the Super Bowl. Who knows how much sleep he got, flies down to Miami to get announced as new HC. Then some fans criticize him because he didn't give the most polished answer in first interview (I'm assuming first interview) as a Dolphin.

    Personally, I think he has handled this situation exemplary. Has all the makings of a great HC.

    Looks like WalterFootball gave Miami a D grade for the hire. He goes on to say how all the Patriot assistants go on to suck as head coaches elsewhere.

    And his opinion means what?

    He's a clown.

    Seems like a decent guy. Not very charismatic and he doesn't exactly exude confidence, but it's early.

    I will say that I like Flores better than Gase already... but I will miss his googly eyes.

    If he doesn’t win the division by next Monday I want him fired.

    And he gave Zac Taylor a C- and Gase an A+

    If those don't invalidate his relative opinion I don't know what does :shrug:
