#2501897 What Dolphins Fans are Saying...

Posted by Steve Smith on 20 November 2013 - 05:11 PM

This team is too focused to have a let down. There is a mentality flowing through this team that we will always being the underdog. Rivera has this team on it's p's and q's. This team has had too many let downs in the past three years to not learn from their mistakes. We are seeing a young team maturing and learning what it takes to be successful.

 

ALSO, these phins fans are so painful to converse with. Typically I always lurk and never post but some of the delirious things they were saying over there prompted me to make an account. They have very little substance in their remarks. It's quite hilarious.




#2380162 Is our problem coaching or talent?

Posted by Steve Smith on 15 September 2013 - 07:41 PM

Cam is certainly not the the issue here. As a coach and a offensive coordinator, you have to build confidence in your QB. Coming out gun-slinging in the first half and expect him to hit consistent deep balls is ridiculous. The offense must have a rhythm, you allow your quarterback to miss these throws and rock his boat. In addition, you don't establish a running game in the first half and expect the second half to be run-first. Our coaching is ELEMENTARY. The game is won before the ball is even snapped, there have to be reads and recognizing weaknesses of the opposing defence. It seems to me as if the play calls are random. There is no understanding of situational game awareness from this coaching staff. The pattern of play calling is ridiculous. 

 

Lets look at the FINAL THREE DRIVES of the game.

 

3rd Quarter, 59 Seconds left on BUFFALO 16.

-Two straight wildcat plays, Cam Newton run to the left for a first down.

-Incomplete pass to Lafell, Run up the middle for no gain, Incomplete to Smith.

-FIELD GOAL

 

4th Quarter, 12:14 left on BUFFALO 26

-DeAngelo run up the middle, Incomplete to Lafell, 12 yard first down to Olsen.

-DeAngelo run up the middle, DeAngelo run to the left tackle, SACK,

-FIELD GOAL

 

4th Quarter, 7:13 left on CAROLINA 20

-15 Yard Strike to Olsen

-10 STRAIGHT RUN PLAYS TO BUFFALO 21.

-FOURTH AND ONE AND WE KICK A FIELD GOAL

 

15 RUN PLAYS TO 4 PASSING PLAYS

5 Plays in which Cam Newton is responsible for the ball.

Giving the ball on 3rd and four to a "tuck it and don't fumble" running back. 

 

OUR COACHING STAFF HAS NO IDEA ABOUT PLAY PATTERNS AND SETTING UP DEFENCES. Elementary play calling, poor play calling situations and lack of awareness shows that this coaching staff is blind and have no clear identity or idea what playing football is about.

At least the players admit they suck.

 

GIve me a break. A team with this much talent and you expect me to believe that it is the player's fault? What do you want the defense to do? Two turnovers in the final three drives with excellent field position. No cut-throat play calling. Plain and simple.

All I ever hear from players is "EXECUTE". GIVE ME A BREAK! WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO EXECUTE WHEN THE COACHES CALL A 3RD AND FIVE RUN WITH TOLBERT WITH THE GAME ON THE LINE?!?!?!?! You put these players in the toughest situations with calls like that and expect them to perform. The game is won before the ball is even snapped with recognizing defensive weaknesses and NOT BEING PREDICTABLE. Where was a play action with a curl or an out route? Or putting the ball in your playmaker's hands with a read option? No, the coaching staff just seems to insist on forcing these players to turn LOW PERCENTAGE PLAYS to a successful play.
