  • The Gase Race Heats Up In The Big Apple
    by Craniator87 on May 24, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    Well, that didn’t take long. Just four months after having been hired by the New York Jets to become their head coach, Adam Gase has won a stunning power struggle in New York and engineered the ouster of former Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. What’s more, Gase has also been named interim GM by the team’s ownership, and will almost certainly have considerable input into who Woody and Chris Johnson ultimately bring in to run the team’s personnel department. This is just the latest chapter in the the rollercoaster like, often incestuous soap opera known as the AFC East. Rex Ryan became head coach of the Jets in 2009, and promptly stated that he didn’t become their coach to “kiss Bill Belichick’s rings”. Upon being fired by the Jets six seasons later, Ryan would go on to coach their in state rival and fellow AFC East combatant, the Buffalo Bills. Belichick himself was hired by the Jets in 2000, but immediately resigned at his introductory press conference to go to New England instead. When the news of Gase’s firing came out in January, Ryan was said to be putting a coaching staff together, with the expectation that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross might come calling. Mercifully, that didn’t happen, and now, in the unending game of musical chairs within the division, former de facto Patriots defensive coordinator Brian Flores is coaching the Dolphins. Fortunately for Jets fans, New York has a roster that, at this juncture appears to be fairly loaded. They have a formidable defensive line and the team has spent copiously, perhaps too much so, to bring in talent on offense to give Sam Darnold plenty of weapons. You’ll notice that Gase didn’t cite Darnold’s presence as one of the main reasons he took the job, at least not overtly so. He didn’t have to. You only say that you took a coaching job because of the quarterback when everyone knows your team has a mediocre quarterback. When a coach says, “I took this job because of the quarterback”, that’s Latin for, “For this team to get where it wants to go, the QB has to play a lot better”. So now, we can expect plenty of folks to pull up Tannehill’s career stats and argue that they’re better than Darnold’s were as a rookie last season. Okay. So, the Jets probably won’t be much fun for us when we have to play them for the next year or two, but they’ll implode eventually. They always do. I’d also like to extend a hearty ‘Welcome Back’ (if he ever left, that is) to SSL.128. This guy is fantastic, and the site isn’t the same without him. His recent posting of the Pink Panther’s Inspector Clouseau was hilarious, and SSL is a literary giant unsurpassed by anyone one here. Now, if I just get him to stop calling me the King of Spain, we’ll be cooking on all burners. It started when I said a few years ago that if Dion Jordan was a linebacker in a 4-3 defense, then I’m the King of Spain. He wasn’t and isn’t, but hey, if you want to call me the King of Spain, anyway, that’s okay. I’ve been called worse, I do declare. […]

  • Biggest ‘What If’ in Dolphins history
    by Kevin Nogle on May 24, 2019 at 1:15 pm

    A couple of days ago, our old friend and former contributor to The Phinsider Ryan Yousefi posed at the Miami New Times an article looking at the “Five Biggest “What If’s” in Miami Sports History.” He also asked Twitter for more Miami sports “What Ifs.” Of course, my thoughts were immediately on Miami Dolphins ‘what ifs.’ There is an obvious number one (and two?) for the Dolphins, so I am going to take that away from your answers. The ‘what ifs’ surrounding Drew Brees are not allowed to be used - because everyone would answer those. What if the Dolphins had drafted Drew Brees? What if the Dolphins had signed Brees in free agency rather than trade for Daunte Culpepper? See, now you cannot answer those. Yousefi gave two Dolphins “what ifs” in his article, “What if the Miami Dolphins had drafted Randy Moss instead of John Avery?” and “What if the Dolphins drafted Matt Ryan instead of Jake Long?” I answered three on Twitter, “What if Duante Culpepper’s knee returned to full health?,” “What if Ricky Williams had played every year?,” and “What if Jake Long’s body had not broken down?” Now, what are your Dolphins “what ifs” and why?

  • Phinsider Radio: DeVante Parker, Kenyan Drake vs Kalen Ballage, Josh Rosen vs Ryan Fitzpatrick, and much, much more!
    by Josh Houtz on May 24, 2019 at 11:31 am

    Listen to this week’s episode of Phinsider Radio. Your ears will thank you! Click here to listen^^^^^^^^^^ On today’s episode of Phinsider Radio, Matthew Cannata and Josh Houtz mourn the loss of their fallen co-host, Aaron Sutton. (Don’t worry he’s just sick) And the two dive deep into all the happenings at the Dolphins second week of OTAs . With Brian Flores and his coaching staff implementing a New England-style offense in Miami, can Kenyan Drake be the three-down running back we all have hoped for? Or will second-year running back Kalen Ballage be the primary back? Which running back will be at the top of the Dolphins’ depth chart come September? Year after year, DeVante Parker is destined for a breakout season. And after two weeks of OTAs, things are much of the same in South Florida. Parker has impressed the new coaching staff, and is poised to finally have the season we all expect. Can he be the Dolphins #1 wide receiver? Or is his time in Miami slowly beginning to fade? Lastly, Cannata and Houtz dive deep into the Dolphins’ quarterback situation, and debate whether or not Josh Rosen needs to start Week 1. Is it a true quarterback competition, or is 36-year old Ryan Fitzpatrick a back up once again? Oh, and after 32 years of living on Earth, Cannata finally learns how to say quarterback! All of this and much, much more on this week’s episode of Phinsider Radio. Reach out to us on Twitter or let us know your thoughts down below in the Comments Section!!!

Kenyan Drake sounds a lot like most Dolphin fans as we just want the team to win more games.

  • Phinsider Question Of The Day (W/ Live Thread, General Discussion & Poll) 05/22/2019
    by James McKinney on May 24, 2019 at 12:00 am

    Tonights Phinsider Question Of The Day is again about the logo. Perhaps it’s because I have gotten to the point where I don’t really notice it but I for sure still do not love it. My question is, would you prefer the club stick with the current logo, go back to one of the previous logos (shown below) or go with the one at the bottom? This is one of the logo’s that circulated around the time that they had announced a new logo but not yet unveiled it. I loved it then and I love it now. I feel as if it updates it but in a way that keeps the traditional feeling of the previous logos. As well as this almost nightly post serving as the Phinsider Question Of The Day post it will also serve as a live thread meaning that pretty much anything is up for discussion so long as you continue to follow all of the site rules. If you are, for whatever reason, not aware of or need a refresher of the sites rules please check the “library” tab under the “more” tab at the top of the front page. The page not only has all of the sites rules but also has a ton of good tips to make your blogging experience here much more enjoyable or at least more smooth. […]
