Now that the Panthers scapegoated Mike Shula because Cam Newton wasn’t smart enough to get rid of the ball, Shula is now available. (with their season on the line and only 20 yards away from a win, Newton threw a bad incompletion, then threw an intentional grounding, then underthrew a receiver, and finally took a sack. on 4th down, with the season on the line, he took a sack instead of at least TRYING to heave it downfield).
I, for one, think it would be wise to bring Shula in. He has the experience and the pedigree, and I think it would be an incredible image boost for the Dolphins to have a Shula on staff. He’s certainly more qualified to run an offense (and a team) than Adam Gase, but we know Gase won’t let him call plays. At least bring him in an as assistant, and let’s see what he can do.
Speaking of assistants, Jon Fox, Jack Del Rio, and Chuck Pagano are all out there and unemployed, so apparently Gase feels that Matt Burke (and alll his years of experience and alll the greatness he had the D achieve this year) is better than those three men. I wish Ross would step in and set Gase straight!
I wanted to open this up to our readers: What coaching changes would you like to see occur? Granted, Gase is not going anywhere, but there are position coaches and assistants where we can improve.
We always discuss what players we need, but what kind of coaches do we need?
