    Gase was very upset with the offense and he's making changes and I can't blame him for it. This tells me the new guy from Denver is coming in for sure

    Ozzy rules!!

    @ckparrothead has an interesting take on this



    While Ajayi and Drake certainly developed under Barrett its definatly fair to say the rbs made frustrating mistakes over the last couple of years.

    Ajayi in particular seemed to freelance a lot and I detested his inability to just take the easy 3 yards when they were there for the taking.

    But still... he did good work with drake this year

    The guy from Denver is who Gase must have wanted all along. Plus this just makes CJ Anderson more attainable.

    I don't know about this. We've had 2 RBs develop from zero to Ajayi and Drake. I'd say the guy was pretty good, somethings going on.

    The Miami Dolphins continue to make changes to the their coaching staff, particularly on offense, as running back coach Danny Barrett has been fired, a league source told The Miami Herald Thursday night.

    In a move that is quite likely related, the team expects to soon interview former Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville, The Herald has confirmed. The Sporting News first to reported Miami’s interest in Studesville.

    Studesville’s availabilty is what moved Dolphins coach Adam Gase to consider releasing Barrett because he wants a coach that could upgrade the staff. The Dolphins finished 28th in points per game in 2016. Gase tried to hire Studesville when he was forming his first staff in 2016 but was blocked from doing so by the Broncos. In that regard, Studesville was Gase’s first choice to be his running backs coach.

    I think Armando meant 2017 not 2016.

    Maybe gase is more pissed about the J train than we give them credit for. Maybe he really wanted him to work out but that coach couldn't get it done.

    I like that Gase is making changes, respect...just hope he doesn't forget defense.

    Quite cold to let people doing a decent job go just because you can get an upgrade. But we do it with players every year? Why not coaches?

    We need all the help we can get

    We made a big run at CJ but Denver matched. Maybe we can make it happen this time.

    Like him or not, Gase is not playing around. You have to at least give him credit for trying to make the changes he feels will help us turn things around. Some people here have complained that he's just bringing in his friends. Well, he's letting people go so you can't complain he brings in his friends and then complain he lets them go too. That's just complaining for the sake of complaining

    Ozzy rules!!

    It's hard as a fan to really tell what's going on with position coaches, so all I can say is "I hope that the new coach is a good teacher who gets his guys doing what they're supposed to be doing."

    But man, is Gase not happy with some of his staff, or is Gase not happy with some of his staff?

    Great! Now sign a new DC who runs a base 3-4 with uneven fronts. Then draft Vita Vea in the first round, and our D goes from mediocre to bad to dominant.

    Let me get this right
    We run the ball the least of all teams in the NFL
    The head coach calls ALL offensive plays yet
    He fires the OC and Running backs coach

    I'm pretty sure we're going to need a bigger bus to throw
    future coaches under

    IMO Gases ego could be his undoing. Guys missing their assignments and penalties are a direct reflection on the coaching staff, so I understand the coaches getting canned. If these guys he is letting go are the issue that kinda means that Gase is focused more on just the playcalling and leaving the coaching of the players on the staff. Hum. Well I would certainly be looking for the best offensive line and linebacker coach in the biz if I were Gase.

    There is obviously more to an NFL running back than just running with the brick in your hands. I would say the problems the head coach is having with the position is "blocking" on passing plays. Even in this simple task, there are multiple reads and assignments, not to mention taking the proper angle, etc.

    I'm just saying have a little confidence in the head coach. They know what they're doing, and they see things on a daily basis, where we can only judge on Sundays.

    Hope it's true that Washburn and Loggains had choices. It would mean that Gase still retains some mojo with the coaching community.

    Boy Do I agree, we obviously could've used Wade Phillips this year. the guy's done nothing but turn defenses around for decades now. I'm starting to believe this team DOES needs a cultural change. an excellent example of this is how Miami keeps finishing at the bottom of the league4 penalties. Back when the team was a perennial winner that was just the opposite.

    He's assembling the offensive staff he wanted 2 years ago, not sure if they're better but at least the communication among them will be better.

    Don Shula said the job of the HC is to TEACH (coach) the position coaches...

    I do NOT believe for an instant the real problem with this team was a RB coach or another position coach.

    And it definitely wasn't Clyde Christensen...

    Well if the new guy aint from the Bears, he must be from..Denver, lol

    I fear that by the time Gase finally gets his coaches and players and his offense rolling, other teams will have figured out Gase and his offense. I hope he can get it going (Like he wants) soon.

    CK's tweet makes a lot of sense. If Gase can hire Studesville as the RB coach, you have to love the upgrade on that position. We won't be talking about RBs whiffing on blocks anymore.

    Pretty pleased to be honest, it appears Gase is remaking the O coaches with who he originally wanted. Can't complain about that, whether Gase sinks or swims he will have the staff he wants so he can't have anyone to blame. I'm betting he will swim.
    It's interesting there has been little done on the D side, imo Gase is trusting Burke decide if he wants staff changes on that side, and Burke has said he is happy. Feel a bit less positive on the D side, but happy to let it play out.

    Why do I have a feeling that if Gase fired Burke, you'd complain about that too?

    Here's something interesting about that: In 2016, the Dolphins were 5th in the NFL in rushing percentage. That is to say that Miami ran the ball more than 27 other teams.

    It was a weird season. I think a lot of our throwing so much had to do with the fact that we were down so often.

    I like the move. If he can upgrade a coach, he should do it. And for those calling for wholesale changes on the defense, I get the feeling that it is coming but not as fast as you would like. There are still 8 teams playing and there are probably more coaching changes coming as coordinators from some of those teams get head coaching jobs and then put their staffs together. The domino effect will free up some quality coaches that hopefully will want to work with Gase and improve the overall football IQ of the staff. I am not a "the sky is falling" kind of guy...I would rather wait to see what Gase's plan is leading up to the draft and OTA's and then make a judgement of the moves made.

    Like someone else said above, players are regularly replaced for someone better so why not coaches?

    I know some people wanted him here so
    Vic Fangio - DL - Bears
    Bears re-signed DC Vic Fangio to a three-year contract.

    Fangio interviewed for Chicago's head-coaching vacancy last week but lost out to Chiefs OC Matt Nagy. He was also linked to defensive coordinator openings in Green Bay and Los Angeles (Chargers), but those jobs have since been filled. The Bears' defense was sneaky-good under Fangio this past season, ranking in the top-10 in passing yards allowed (seventh), points allowed (ninth) and total yards (10th). 2018 will be his fourth season in Chicago.

    Ozzy rules!!
