With all of our losses this year I see that the offensive play calling has had a lot to do with it. I definately believe that Mularkey needs to be let go this offseason. My question is who do you think would be available to fill this hole?

Why keep changing offensive coodinators year in and year out. The offense needs to stay constant . If we keep changing year in and year out this offense will never get anywhere. Because they will always be learning new offensive schemes year in and out. Me I would rather stick with the guy we got for at least another year at least. Its just like our offensive line. we kept changing guys in and out and never finding any rhythm.

Mularkey blows. This concept some people have of sticking with him is baffling to me. Consistency is not a good thing if you're consistently terrible.

I knew it was a huge mistake to hire Mularkey as our OC. He trashed Buffalo and he's now ruining our Dolphins.

there is no doubt keeping the same terminology, system and players together is more beneficial than changing things up every year. however, what we have now is a complete cluster**** that needs to be dismantled. we have a knucklehead OC running 3 diffrent offenses with a mixture of terminology. we have what linehan left, what mularky has put in, and what has been added to better suite joey. we go from tiger personnel to the red offense and back in the same series. it's not who is calling the plays, but rather what they are calling. saban needs to listen to his own advice and quit doing the same thing - mularky - and expecting a diffrent result.

Well some of that will have to do with personel as you stated. And then you add the fact that Dante and Joey are different players. And the mistake of bringing in a new offensive coordinator. That has his own plays and all the while still keeping alot of what linehan left. Which I think is stupid. If you are bringing in a different coordinator. Why do you keep some of the things the previous guy did. Unless you are just making a slow transition to what Mularkey plays with.

I have no problem with Mularkey right now. I have seen worse . Like when Wanny was here. The problem is keeping the Linehan terminology. If he is no longer here. Just to satify a player. And as we have seen this year that player did not fare so well in an offense that he should have done good in.

And yes I know Dante was playing injured. But that is no excuse really. Lots of guys play hurt. And if Dante was hurting so bad he should have kept his ego and body on the sidelines to heal until he could play.

As far as the different calls for Joey . That does make sense. because he is different than Culpepper.

And ultimately this all still rests on the shoulders of the head coach. So if the coach don't like the play or result. Change the play and call them himself.

Well this can go both ways. We started the game on fire, with great playcalls, and great execution, and our offense driving right down the field. But once the Jaguars made adjustments, Mularkey had his head up his *** the rest of the game. We never did anything to counter what the Jagz we're doing, we pretty much stayed with the same routine all game, and for that i am pissed at Mularkey.



i mean once they started getting to Joey and rattling him, don't you think you should design some kind of screen plays to counter what they were doing and get joey some confidence back? how about some WR screens? Nope they just let them have their way. It blew my mind

agreed. rem the bills fan came in a while ago saying seemed as if he intentionally wanted to take out the bills and cared bout ntn more then his stupid gadget plays. a lot of ppl bashed the man calling him a hater as miami fans always do when an opposing teams fan comes on our board half the time but i think he has a very good point if u ask me.

You know what, you put in a decent Offensive Line, and a Healthy normal Daute Culpepper, and you have the time for plays to develop, and for blockers to open up holes, and this offensive is just fine. Keep Mularkey for another year, and fix those problems.

I wouldn't mind Jimbo Fisher. Rumor has him really hating his current gig.

Of course other rumor has Bowden eyeing Fisher as his OC.

But why stay constant if you constantly suck?

Mularkey is not the problem, our offensive line bad play, WR dropping balls and Joey Harrington int's, those are our problems at offense.

good observation. that's why you need "change" at the coordinator position. mularkey has 2 objectives each game: 1. devising a game plan based on what he sees on film. 2. making adjustments during the game.
From what I observe, he's not that bad at gameplanning, but making adjustments is a big negative.
Joey has had good first halfs but the second half, with the exception of meaningless stats when we're way behind, has been a disaster.

Good points.

Another thing is that mularkey gives up on the run when he sees that we are down. Now He 's ran Ronnie Brown more recently, and look what happens, we win games. Morris is no Ronnie, but he can hit the hole pretty well, he wasn't doing bad until we gave up on the run.
